Machu Picchu, Peru

Explore Incredible Inca Ruins

Often called the “Lost City of the Incas,” marvel at the remarkable ruins such as the Temple of the Condor and Sun Gate, the endpoint of the Inca Trail. Visiting Machu Picchu in June takes advantage of the dry season and avoids the heaviest crowds that arrive in July and August.

Annual Cheese Rolling

How much do you love cheese? This 200-year-old tradition has attracted people from all over the world who chase a round of Double Gloucester cheese down Cooper’s Hill. The first person to reach the finish line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese.

The Great Smoky Mountains

America’s Most Popular National Park

Nine million annual visitors road trip through Tennessee or North Carolina to see the swirly blue morning haze which gives the mountains their name. If possible, explore the park in the beginning of the month and start your days early (before 10am) to miss the hordes of summer tourists.

Stockholm, Sweden

Summer in Northern Europe

Weather-wise, June is the ideal time to visit Stockholm to take advantage of most of its cafes, attractions and open-air museums. Thousands of tourists also flock to northern Sweden to see the midnight sun, a natural phenomenon where the sun is visible until midnight -- and for a full 24 hours around the solstice (June 21).

Cruise the Mediterranean

Luxury at Sea

Before the summer’s scorching heat arrives in July, enjoy the Mediterranean’s long sunny days, warm waters and gentle breezes. Aboard a cruise ship you can stop in Italian, Turkish and Greece ports while enjoying the exceptional food and service a luxury cruise line, like the Regent of the Seas, provides.
