Five Amazing Summer Travel and Vacation Destinations for Students

Are you a student who is already dreaming of summer vacation and how you plan to spend your time? If so, you aren’t alone, as summer holidays offer all kinds of great opportunities for students whether they choose to work, accept an internship, enroll in extra courses, or do a little traveling. You may even decide to combine a few of those ideas together and really pack as much as possible into your summer holidays.

For those who have plans to do a little traveling, the next logical question is where you want to go? Whether you’re just looking at a local or in-country trip, or if you’re planning to be a bit more adventurous and book a trip outside the country, there are endless options. To help you narrow down the list of potential vacation destination contenders, here’s a look at five standout destinations.

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

If you are a little low on spending money and you’re looking to stay in the country but still want a memorable trip, then a vacation at a national park may just be the answer. Bryce Canyon National Park is one of Utah’s “Mighty Five” national parks. It is known for its stunning scenery and views, spectacular wildlife, endless activities, and a chance to really experience history. There are a number of accommodation options in and near Bryce Canyon, at all different price points.

Miami, Florida

If it’s more of a party atmosphere you’re after, but again can’t afford to leave the country, then Miami, Florida is always a good time. You’ll feel as though you’re vacationing in the Caribbean thanks to the surf and sand, and it’s always a popular destination for students just like you. You can spend your days catching some sun, shopping, dining, and exploring, then the evenings can be spent at the many bars, clubs, and restaurants Miami is known for.

The Caribbean

The Caribbean is always a popular spot for students as well, with such budget-friendly destinations as the Dominican Republic. This is also an opportunity to book in at an all-inclusive resort where you don’t have to worry about any extra or hidden fees. These resorts tend to be quite large, offer all kinds of dining, sports, and activities, and can keep you as busy or relaxed as you like.


Ecuador is another fabulous destination for students, as it gives them a chance to discover a taste of South America but on a tight budget. It’s all about the sights and outdoor adventures in Ecuador, and it’s also home to the world-famous Galapagos Islands.

A European Tour

If it’s more of an international trip that you’re after then why not head overseas to Europe? While you can certainly choose just one country to visit, most people prefer to book a European tour that explores a number of different countries. This is ideal for first-time travelers who want the absolute most from their European experience.

Each of these summer vacation ideas provides you with incredible ways to enjoy your summer vacation and make it a memorable one.
