Oh summer, you always fly by so fast! Your long days are already getting shorter. So we better get a move on those summer plans!
With Labor Day around the corner, make the most of a three-day weekend and go exploring outdoors. Need some inspiration? You are in luck as we have you covered (literally!) with our top five summer road trips
#1 The Outer Banks, North Carolina: Hop in the car, and head to the Outer Banks, a 200 mile long barrier island that sits off the coast of North Carolina in the Atlantic Ocean. With ocean on one side and the Pamlico Sound on the other, the sun rises and sets on the water. Be sure to pack all of your outdoor gear, as the Outer Banks offers something for every outdoor enthusiast, fishing, hang gliding, world class surfing, kite boarding, windsurfing, SUP boarding, jet skiing, boating, kayaking, biking, or just relaxing on the beach in your Nvr Strings Bikini!
#2 Rock Climb + Hike + Mountain Bike Shawangunks, NY: Drive two hours north of the city, and you will find an awesome outdoor playground. You can rock climb, hike, mountain or road bike, kayak, fish, and even swim in a waterfall. To top off all the outdoor activities, Labor Day Weekend is the perfect time of year for fresh fruits and vegetables. Before you head back to the concrete jungle, be sure to stop at one of the roadside farm stands to stock up.
#3 Hike Lost Coast Trail at Kings Range in Northern California: OK, this is not a simple road trip. It’s a multi-day 50-mile (round-trip) hike along northern California’s coastline. If you want to do the hike only one way, there is a scenic 2.5-hour drive to take you back to your starting point. Lost Coast Trails is top rated, and one of California’s best-kept secrets. And when you finish the hike, drive and explore the magnificent California coastline and forest.
#4 Stand Up Paddle at Spray Lakes, Canada: Head up north (up real north) and explore some of the most beautiful lakes in Canada: Spray Lakes. Located 50 minutes outside of Calgary, Alberta, the lakes provides stunning views, are quiet, and absolutely serene. Activities include SUPing, hiking, golfing or even biking to Banff on back country trails! And for our wander lusting located in the US, we promise you will not be disappointed – hop on a plane to Calgary and take advantage of that three-day weekend!
#5 Surf in Canggu, Bali: Do you have some extra vacation time and really want to get out there? Instead of road tripping in a car, how about road tripping on a scooter in Bali? Book tickets now, hop on a plane, and travel to one of the most beautiful tropical destinations. Canggu is known for its awesome surf available – for both beginner and advanced surfers – and has perfect warm water so you can rock your Nvr Strings Bikini!
