Our Favorite Summer Vacation Spots for 2015.
Summer vacation is a time of highs and lows. The sun above brings bright days, but it is often oppressive in its heat. While many people may have extra free time during this season of freedom and leisure, those fair-skinned types may find themselves restricted to small doses of the outdoors, lest they burn and blister. A day at the beach conjures images of joyful relaxation in the sand, but the reality of the wrathful sun above often leaves beachgoers sore and peeling.
But don’t let the brilliant rays of the sun keep you at your computer all summer long, there is still plenty of time to make a temporary escape. What’s more, if you bring along proper headwear those bothersome UV rays will become quite manageable.
Without further ado, here are our picks for some top vacation spots this summer, along with the perfect hat for the trip from e4hats.com!
Mosey down to Pensacola Beach, Florida with a stylish bucket hat or visor
Originally settled by the Spanish, this pristine barrier island on the “Redneck Rivera” has some of the nicest beaches in the nation. White sands, a calm bay on one side, and an ancient fort that once held Geronimo are just some of the island’s attractions. But be warned, the Deep South is deeply hot and humid come summer time, and visitors would do well to come prepared with the 360 degrees of shade that our mesh bucket hat can provide. Visors are also a great way to provide shade without feeling confined.
Jet over to Lanai, Hawaii with a colorful roll up sun visor
This is the smallest publicly accessible island in the Hawaiian island chain, but that only adds to the seclusion and mystery of this Polynesian paradise. Once a giant pineapple plantation, the island is now a great spot for a quiet day at an empty beach. Don’t be deterred by the proximity to the equator’s scorching rays, one of our colorful roll up hats can fit handily in a purse and provide shade as you bask in the glory that is Hawaii.
Sail away to Zakynthos Island, Greece with our wide brim beach hat
The nation of Greece has been hard up lately, but that is no reason not to appreciate its warm culture and ancient insular beaches. Nicknamed “the flower of the East” by Venetians, this gorgeous Ionian island is a great place to get away from it all if you can afford the airfare (and if you are already in Europe, it will be cheap). But take care traveler, the Greek sun God Helios is alive and well in these isles, so come prepared with our classy beach hat.
Fly out to Fiji with our tweed floppy sun hat
Just a jaunt away from New Zealand’s North Island (and in that part of the world, a jaunt is a mere 1000 miles), the islands of Fiji are a tourist’s paradise. With a rich native culture and beautiful landscape, there is plenty to do and see on this historic island chain. But the sun is no joke, so come stylish with our tweed floppy sun hat, and spend the week in a hammock listening to the waves crash in.
Wherever you go this summer, remember that too much sun is a serious health concern. With our wide selection at e4hats.com, you can protect yourself and look cool in the process.
