Now that summer is finally upon us, you’re likely already beginning to make your preparations for your summer vacation. You’re getting your beach towels ready, stocking up on sunscreen and dreaming about all of those tropical cocktails you’re going to sip by the pool. Maybe you’re even thinking about what it’s going to be like to go to sleep every night in an overwater bungalow, you lucky devil you!
But, here’s the thing about summer. It’s sad to say, but just as soon as it begins, just as quickly will it be coming to an end. You know the old familiar pattern of things. Just when it seems like there will be no end to the days of warmth and sunshine, mother nature comes to rain on your parade…
But, there are some places in the world where summer never comes or leaves… That’s because these are places where it’s pretty much like summer all year long! So, why not check out this list that we’ve put together; if you do, you can get ahead on planning your winter vacation to someplace warm and summerlike! Let’s take a look…
1. San Diego (California)
There’s a reason people move to San Diego and never move, you know? It’s the weather!
2. The Gaslamp
Even during the winter months, you’ll see people out in short sleeves in the always-exciting Gaslamp district.
3. Blue Water
And even when the temperatures reach their coldest (around 60 degrees) the line is always long at the famed Blue Water on India Street!
4. Loja (Ecuador)
How warm does it stay here? Well, you’d best bet it stays as warm as you’d expect for a place named after the equator.
5. Not So Hot
That’s what makes Loja so amazing, as the temperature never gets truly unbearable here, always hovering above 70.
6. And Always Sunny
And to go along with that incredible year-round temperature, you’ve got a place that stays sunny the vast majority of days.
7. Malaga (Spain)
Even though the weather always manages to remains summerlike here, its still not widely known by tourists.
8. How Warm?
This is amazing when you consider the fact that Malaga has the warmest winters on average out of almost all cities in Europe.

This gives you and yours the opportunity to really experience the flavors, sights and sounds of the wonderful open-air markets here.
10. Oahu (Hawaii)
Many consider Hawaii to be a paradise on Earth, and the perfect temps of Oahu are a big reason why.
11. But It Rains…
Still, it’s important to remember that the microclimate of Hawaii often leads to a not insignificant amount of rain…
12. Rain, Rain, Go Away!
But, when it comes to escaping that seemingly inescapable rain, Oahu is undoubtedly the best place.
13. Canary Islands
Just off the coast of Morocco, you’ll find this archipelago (owned by Spain) where the weather’s always tremendous.
14. So Much Sun
In fact, part of the archipelago – Little Sheila – gets nearly a full year’s worth of sunshine, only missing about 25 days.
15. Beach Weather
Which, if you as us, is just about as perfect as beach weather can get. Good thing this archipelago has some incredible beaches, then!
16. El Paso (Texas)
Everything, they say, is bigger in Texas, including the places where it stays summerlike all year long.
17. Hot, Hot, Hot
To be sure, the temperature in El Paso is hotter than most of the other places on this list, but it’s a dry (not-humid) heat.
