Lake Tahoe

Stateside, one of the best June vacations is at Lake Tahoe. Aquamarine waters skirted by towering pine forests that blanket the majestic mountains offer visitors some the best scenery in the country. As with all lakeside vacations, there is ample opportunity for swimming, kayaking, fishing, para-sailing and boating. Enjoy the stunning scenery from a scenic lake cruise or horseback while trotting through the wilderness. Finish a perfect day with a tour above Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake, Cascade Lake and Carson Valley on a hot air balloon through Balloons over Lake Tahoe. Board M.S. Dixie II, a paddlewheel cruise ship, and take in the majestic scenery while dining on some of the best food and refreshments around.

Maui

Another destination for the best June vacations is Maui, Hawaii. Hawaii's temperate climate, many sunny days, and beautiful landscape and beaches provide tourists with a memorable experience. Hike from Honokohaui's Boulder Beach to Nakalele Point and admire the power of the ocean at Nakalele Blowhole, where ocean water is forced up and out with every crashing wave. Lie on the caramel sand at Makena's Big Beach in between body surfing and boogie-board runs. Get out of the sun and drive south from Big Beach through Ahihi-Kina'u Nature Area Reserve where lava flows on either side of the highway and down the slopes of Haleakala.

Caribbean

Tropical destinations provide for some of the best June vacations, and the Caribbean is no exception. Perfect temperatures under mostly clear skies provide visitors with many opportunities to get out and enjoy the natural wonders of the area. Visit Klein Bonaire, a small, uninhabited island whose beaches are perfect for surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling and boogie-boarding. A day trip to Jamaica's Dunn's River Falls is quite an experience. Scale the 600-foot limestone incline in a human-chain to the top of the falls and come down via the falls themselves. A 30-minute boat ride from Nassau, Blue Lagoon Island and Stingray City offers another unique experience for tourists. This private island paradise is host to shopping and dining, as well as many quaint taverns where patrons can be seen dancing to calypso music with a cool refreshment in hand. Also, enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience of interacting with stingrays and dolphins up close.

Greece

Sometimes faraway destinations provide some of the best June vacations. Greece experiences its most pleasant weather in June, so encountering the ancient culture is sure to be pleasurable. Visit the Acropolis, a religious complex built in the 5th century B.C., and the Parthenon, a tribute to the goddess Athena, to absorb the wonders of ancient Greek civilization. At the New Acropolis Museum, 4,000 ancient artifacts, such as, tableware, cooking pots, jewelry, sculptures and fragments of friezes are divided into four areas: Acropolis During the Archaic Period, Parthenon, Acropolis Slopes and Other Monuments of the Classical Acropolis.

London

England provides one of the best June vacations because of the many well-known attractions and some activities that only occur in this month. Every tourist visits sites like Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Canterbury cathedral and Buckingham Place while in London, but during the month of June, special activities offer a unique cultural experience. Wimbledon occurs in June and draws much attention, but the Royal Ascot Horse Race is another great tradition. Occurring every year since 1711, this horse race is an exciting chance to take in England's culture, but be sure to wear formal clothing.

Searching for the best June vacations can seem a daunting task, but the hardest task would be choosing from one of these amazing destinations!
