Summer across the Southeastern United States is so much more than just long days and warm temperatures. It is a time of year marked by local farmers’ markets, Friday nights spent at a drive-in movie theater, water activities such as kayaking or swimming, and epic thunderstorms that lead to beautiful rainbows.
The Southeast has so much to offer during the summer months. Scenic drives like the Blue Ridge Parkway and Cherohala Skyway provide beautiful landscapes from the comfort of your car. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Appalachian Trail give you a chance for stunning mountain views while camping in the wilderness. Special events like The Moonbow, the Fourth of July, and reenactment gives you an excuse to get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors.
Here are twenty travel photos of summer across the Southeastern United States to get you ready for upcoming season. What will you do with your summer?
