There are ups and downs in your life, so give yourself a break if you’ve been struggling. Traveling is an opportunity for you to refresh, turn into a better version of yourself, and push off dealing with those ups and downs for when you get back to your normal life. 

So, take a deep breath and take a break! You deserve it ? ! 


Here are the MPOWER Top 5 U.S. Summer Getaways:

(according to MPOWER staff)

Baltimore, MD

Baltimore’s Fells Point is known for its live music as well as for its seafood joints serving Chesapeake Bay crab and oysters (a culinary utopia). You can also enjoy a  walk along the harbor and the main square after your meal.

Columbus, OH

If you’re looking for a relaxing downtown and lush gardens to stay away from the fuss and from your busy life, check out Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens! You can refresh your mind there and be welcomed with peace and nature.

Sarasota’s Siesta Key Beach, FL

A warm beach is an absolute must on most people’s getaway lists. So kick off your flip-flops and immerse in the sun on this amazing beach.

Long Beach, CA

Experience a fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean right on the bay and also explore the amazing worlds of Universal Studios Hollywood and Disneyland, both within an hour’s drive of the town. It’s a combination of everything fabulous.

Seattle, WA

This is the best place to be surrounded by both mountains and water; the closeness to nature is an iconic feature of Seattle. You can also have a  “wow” moment by standing on the floor-to-ceiling glass at the upper level of the Space Needle.
