 Is Summer The Best Time To Go On Holiday

Summer Great Time to Travel on Holiday
Is Summer the Best Time of Year To Travel?

This may seem like a simple question with a decisive answer, but actually there is not just one answer to this question; in fact there are multiple answers and its very dependant on who is answering the question, because holidays and travel are a personal activity, there are many factors to consider when planning a holiday and the time of travel is one of the most crucial and hinges a lot on what you enjoy doing, where you want to go and who you want to travel with.

Summer has always been one of the most popular time to travel as the weather is always better in summer than other times of the year, also if a person has children there is a 6 week Summer Holiday when the children are home from School, college and University so summer is a good time to travel as a family.

Summer is also a great time to travel as there are a lot of things to see and do during the summer months like, concerts, carnivals, festivals and other out door activities, and sunshine brings a lot of happiness out of people, also the days seem longer because in summer it stays lighter well into the evening, and the weather is good, allowing you to do more each day.

Many top cities such as London have a lot of things going on throughout summer including Notting Hill Carnival, Jazz Festival, Chelsea Flower show, Wimbledon, and many open air concerts in Hyde Park to mention but a few of the events, the sights and places to visit are amazing in Summer and you can walk around the city enjoying may of the places of interest.

Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid and many other European cities are very popular places to visit in Summer and its easy to visit more than one at a time because of the great train network, if you start out in London after just a few hours on Euro Star you can enjoy Paris or Amsterdam too.

New York is another great city to visit in Summer, Central Park is amazing during summer offering a peaceful haven away from the busy city, the famous sights seem more vibrant and inviting, and with the sunny weather its very enjoyable to walk around the city and take in everything on Offer.

If you want to travel and go on holiday during Summer its essential that you book your accommodation well in advance as they sell out quickly during the summer months, especially of you want to get a good deal, travellers who want an affordable accommodation rather than an expensive hotel use hostels and budget hotels as a cheap place to stay on holiday.

Just like everything there are good points as well as some no so good points to travelling and going on holiday during Summer so these things need to be weighed up and a informed  decision made on when to travel.

Some of the not so good points to travelling during summer include:

Summer is high season so things are always more expensive from Flights and accommodation to food and drink, during summer travellers pay a premium for everything, the sight and places to visit are a lot busier, queues will be longer, which in tern means you need more time to see things also public transport, the streets and everywhere will be more crowded. This can also be seen as a benefit as its nice to visit somewhere that has a busy and inviting atmosphere for holiday makers 

All in all, summer is a great time to travel for travelers it offers great weather as well as the usual sights, places to visit, entertainment, food and drink, but every time of year is good time to travel and go on holiday depending on where you are going and what you want to do, after all holidays are a time to relax and be happy and also to recharge your batteries.
