Here at FlipKey, we compiled a list of the top 10 vacation rental destinations in the month of June…enjoy!
With the warm winds of Mexico sweeping past the beautiful blue waters of the Texas Gulf Coast, it is no wonder why this was our number one vacation rental spot in June. Explore South Padre Island’s extensive opportunities, regardless of what you’re looking for in a vacation. Get a taste of Mexico by taking a bus across the border or spend your afternoons on the beach watching dolphins flip in the distance. Have an invigorating day fishing the sparkling waters or ride horses at sunset. Wherever you choose to vacation on the Texas Coast, you will find sun, sand and even a bit of serenity.
The Outer Banks, or OBX if you’re a local, was our second most popular vacation rental destination last month. Although the beaches are the biggest draw to this chain of barrier islands there are many other things to experience. Watch the wild horses on Ocracoke Island, descendents of the colonists’ horses. SCUBA dive the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” a notorious disaster area for ships, and be amazed at what you can find resting so peacefully beneath the surface. But we won’t blame you if you decide to simply kick your feet up on the porch, take a deep breath and watch the sunrise over the vast Atlantic.
Myrtle Beach is home to an abundance of family friendly activities. The area boasts a large number of water parks, amusement parks, and even music parks to keep your entire crew happy. Spend your days cruising Broadway on the Beach, which is home to an aquarium, entertainment complex and an enormous selection of stores. Whatever you decide to do, Myrtle Beach offers an excess of activities that’ll keep you and your little ones smiling.
Destin, Florida on the Emerald Coast is a popular spot for people looking to fish. It’s sparkling waters and warm temperate make it an ideal place to enjoy the outdoors. Known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” Destin is home to some of the best fishing in the Gulf. If you are an avid fisher, make your way down to the Destin Fishing Rodeo. If fish interest you more from a culinary perspective, be sure to check out the Destin Seafood Festival brimming with fresh local seafood as well as local artists.
