Still looking for some suggestions on where you should go and what you should see on an upcoming summer adventure? Why not let National Geographic help? The website has compiled a list of the very best destinations for Summer 2017, with some excellent (and surprising!) options to choose from.

The suggestions – and there are ten in total – are broken down into categories, such as eco-friendly places to visit or an option for those who want to go to a big city instead. The ten destinations are quite diverse, ranging from places as far away as Rwanda in Africa, and as close to home (for me anyway!) as Nashville, TN.

The list will provide you with wildlife encounters, great music, fine art, history, culture and more. There are some classic spots that earn a nod (I”m looking at you Galapagos Islands), and some unexpected places like Bonito, Brazil. But no matter how you like to travel, and where you want to go, chances are you’ll find something that will appeal to you in the places that Nat Geo has selected. And since each of the various locations comes with description of why it deserves to be on your summer short lit, you’ll at least have some idea as to what to see and do there.
