#MyTripAdvice: Quick August Getaway

Summer is more than halfway over and it’s possible that some of you have let it slip away without taking a vacation! With this in mind, we reached out on Twitter asking for suggestions for a last minute getaway using #MyTripAdvice. From exotic recommendations like Chile, to budget-friendly locations like the Florida Panhandle, TripAdvisor travelers have got you covered. Here’s where other travelers suggest you head in August:


sleeping bear



@brynnannagrams suggests Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and she’s not alone in her love of this destination – it has a 5 out of 5 bubble rating on TripAdvisor.


florida pan handle


@sully7705 suggests Asheville, NC and the Florida Panhandle as fun and affordable spots to vacation. As these destinations have nearly 350,000 reviews combined, she might be on to something!



@abbymg92 recommends Niagara Falls. With a view like this, we can see why!


@lizinktn recommends checking off a bucket list item and hopping on an Alaskan cruise.


Now this might seem counter intuitive for August, but for all of you outdoorsy and adventurous types, @kristinaschrek suggests Valle Nevado, Chile for perfect conditions on the slopes!

playa mujeres


@DonnaMurphree says Playa Mujeres, Mexico is the place to go in August! Described on TripAdvisor as “laid back” and “tranquil,” be sure to count us in!

costa rica


@jp_salas suggests heading to Costa Rica for a last minute getaway. With many Costa Rican destinations and the Playa Manuel Antonio making it on two of TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice lists, we are in agreement.



There’s lots to do in Boston says @bekvuk, and she is right! There are more than 50,000 attractions listed for Beantown on TripAdvisor.



@CedricBartier recommends a scenic hike at Yellowstone National Park, where the views resemble a postcard!



@EilchelbergerEM says the Outer Banks is an obvious August getaway. With picturesque sand dunes and miles of shoreline, this tranquil spot is a TripAdvisor traveler favorite.
