Three summer holidays that will suit everyone
When it is time to start planning the summer holiday, it can often feel like there’s too much choice out there. But while it is difficult to pigeonhole people’s holiday choices, sometimes we just need a little inspiration to choose our next destination. Read on for three different holidays that will suit the differing needs of people.
The theme park fan
The theme park fan is the easiest holidaymaker to plan for. Lucky for us, just across the Atlantic we have the world theme park Mecca waiting for us in America’s Sunshine State. Walt Disney World Resort is to Florida what Big Ben is to London: theme parks are Florida’s most striking landmarks.
From Universal Studios to Walt Disney World Resort, there is little that the thrill-seeker wouldn’t enjoy, and it’s easy and affordable to see it all. Florida tickets are available, offering the cheapest entry prices to parks and attractions all over the state.
In Orlando, along with Walt Disney Resort and Universal Studios you’ll find SeaWorld and Busch Gardens as well as Discovery Cove, SeaWorld’s very own aquatic theme park that lets you snorkel through tropical reefs, swim with dolphins and dive down to see sunken ships.
It would be a brave person to declare that Florida’s theme parks were not enough for them; in fact, they would probably be the first to do so.
The culture vulture
The next holiday proposition is possibly as far from the thrill-a-minute world of the theme park holiday as you could get, but that’s just the way the culture vulture likes it. Think evening strolls, ancient ruins, red wine and architecture. Think Rome.
Rome is the perfect city to explore by foot thanks to a transport system that doesn’t take many much to get used to, and a labyrinthine layout that means many of the best sights are stumbled across. By all means plan to visit the monuments like the Colosseum, museums like Galleria Borghese and, of course, architecture like St. Peter’s Basilica, but make sure to get lost in Rome for the spirit of the city to really suck you in.
According to the Guardian, the restaurant Da Remo in Piazza Santa Maria Della Liberatrice is one of the best places in the city for pizza, so after a lazy day of sightseeing be sure to stop by.
The beach bum
The beach bum is quite possibly the holiday personality that most people would associate themselves with. Not because they are not inspired by culture or because theme parks are off their radar, but because beach breaks can be the most relaxing.
Some of the most relaxing beaches in Europe are to be found on the many Greek Islands that are surrounded by warm water. Those that like to get stuck into a good book while on holiday will appreciate the serenity of Corfu, with its quaint towns where there is nothing better than a meal of meze dishes and wine.
Corfu is home to sandy coastline and a climate that keeps people out on the beaches for most of the year.© Copyright 2013 Jeanna, All rights Reserved. Written For: MomsVacationSpots
