16 Best Places to Vacation in the Summertime

Saint Pierre and Miquelon

Not far off the coast of Newfoundland in Canada, are the islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, which are officially French territory. These self-governed islands are best visited in August, when temperatures are warmest, and sit just below 20°C. August is also the time of the Miquelon Seafood festival, the Saint Pierre et Miquelon/ Magdalen Island sailing race, the “Rock n’Rhum” Music Festival and the Basque Festival, so there is certainly plenty to see. Wander the streets, visit the museums and restaurants, and explore the rugged coastline. But don’t forget your Euros — this is, after all, part of France.
