Choosing a summer vacation destination is rarely a last-minute endeavor. Depending on your career, school or schedule, summer can be that one season to let loose, vacation and completely get away for a little while, making it a fun one to plan for.


For anyone still considering a vacation with friends and family, a good way to make the vacation more accessible for not only yourself, but also fellow friends and family, is to consider a multigenerational destination. When everyone has something to see and do, no matter their age or interest, it can open up more opportunities, lend to some free time away from the group, or add more memorable options to enjoy together.


One way to ensure you’re including something for everyone: choosing a multisport destination. Multisport might sound active, adventurous and non-stop go-go-go, but that’s not always the case. Most destinations capable of entertaining all the athletes and adventurers in your group offer all the wonders of the outdoors, natural beauty and great tours, but typically come with a host of ways to unwind and relax, as well. Think hiking trails and kayaks by day, great dining by night, and shopping and spa-going peppered in throughout.



One way to entertain the restless go-getter, check out Epic Discovery. This on-mountain summer experience is available in Vail and Breckenridge, as well as a laundry list of other destinations, including Stowe and Park City. Epic Discovery is essentially an adventure wonderland with rides, zip lines, steep slides, live concerts, restaurant weeks, diverse events and way more.


If you’re heading to the Lake Tahoe area, Heavenly Ski Resort offers Epic Discovery with mountain coasters, rope courses, 4×4 vehicle tours and outdoor fun for pretty much everyone in your group.


Take advantage of the region’s famously luxurious hotels and resorts. For travelers looking to relax after hikes, kayaking tours and summer activity outside (or just a full-on spa vacation), check out the many treatments and capabilities of nearby resorts, all offering spa days, high-end shopping, incredible fine dining and endless views of the mountains and bright-blue summer skies.



Heading south for the summer? No problem. The Lake House at The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee sits on 30 acres of Georgia shoreline, surrounded by lush pines and offers all-ages activities and attractions. Bring a big group or keep it intimate; either way you get the 5-star Ritz treatment inside, surrounded by nature activities and outdoor summer fun outside.


Utah and Beyond

If you want to go full-camping mode this summer, but don’t really have the tools to adventure on your own, enlist the help (and comforts of home for your less camp-focused friends) of professionals, like Glamping Getaway Yurts or Under Canvas.


Sleep under the stars in Goblin Valley State Park, Utah, with a luxury tent after a long day of hiking, mountain biking and canyoneering.


For something with a little more variety, Under Canvas is available in every national park nationwide, and caters to all travelers. Enjoy the comforts of home in a completely stunning locale, available across the country. Check out the 7 Parks in 7 Days package, where you can visit seven national parks by way of private aircraft during a week’s vacation.


Do your best out there in the wild, enjoy the rugged beauty of it all and plan for a car transfer back to the nearest city for some nightlife and civilization. If you can stand the heat, choose a camp in Arizona, Utah, Nevada or Southern California to set yourself up for a second leg of the trip, enjoying the comforts of Las Vegas, Nevada; Sedona resorts; Scottsdale nightlife; SoCal beaches; and anything a short drive away that can break up your multidimensional trip.


Pacific Northwest

For those needing a little break from the heat — that’s what the beach is for — Crater Lake National Park in southern Oregon is far more your speed. With sunshine and warm, comfortable weather, you can explore the park’s idyllic beauty with some natural adventures at your own pace. Spend a few nights before heading further north for Portland. Enjoy the comforts and quirkiness of the city with your crew, or head straight for Seattle, Washington, for more shopping and 5-star cuisine. Summer is a great time to enjoy the rare sunny days along the Pacific Northwest.


Getting the group together is difficult enough, but tackling the where, what and how can be overwhelming. With a destination that speaks for itself, you can head out on a summer vacation knowing everyone (or, at the very least, most) of your group can find something they want to do, no matter their age, athletic ability or vacation style. Maybe just make sure they like the outdoors, or at least stunning natural beauty.
