Dream Destinations for Marriott’s Celebrate Summer Event

This post brought to you by Marriott Resorts. The content and opinions expressed below are that of LuxeInACity.

With the honey colored skies, the chorus of crickets trilling like a silver string band each night, and the balmy buttery temperatures soaring and falling, soaring and falling you know that summer is here to stay. This is such a glorious time to be in the USA, a time when everyone is cramming their cars full of family members to hit the coast, when the surf rolls in big and bold and beautifully cool, and when Marriott.com launches its Celebrate Summer Event inviting guests to come and stay and even offering $100 in resort credits for each day you stay if booked before September 7th, 2015. Resort stays across the good old USA can be a dream way to spend the final days of summer, before the leaves start to turn and the crisp chill air sweeps in. This is your chance to make magical memories with the whole family, to spend mornings lingering over breakfast in your home away home, afternoons teeing off with a first class round of golf on famous resort courses, or splashing with the kids on the fast paced waterslides. From fishing and fine dining in Lake Tahoe to ocean front cocktails and killer course in the garden state of Hawaii, this is what summers are surely made of.

Celebrate Summer Event With Marriott Arizona

Tuscon Arizona

Tuscon may seem like a wild and untamed choice for the summer months, a time when the temperatures soar to a sweltering heat and the desert turns into something of a mirage. Yet Tuscon summers are sweet and lyrical with the mountains shining like diamonds, the nights soft and cool upon your skin and the spectacular storms crashing across the sky making for impeccable photo opportunities. The JW Marriott Starr Pass Tucson Resort & Spa sits comfortably in the foothills of the Mountain Park, bringing you back to nature in supreme comfort and style. Children will fall in love with the chance to ride horses across the desert plains, kicking their spurs and galloping furiously beneath a setting sun. Visit the air and space museum, indulge in a Wild West tour, or take a hike beneath a bounty of stars at night and witness the bats flocking through the skies. With so much water everywhere you will never suffer desert fever at the Starr Pass resort. Cool down with a dip in the Canyon River, tumble down the Monsoon Falls Water Slide and pick a private cabana to enjoy cold beers and fresh fruit in the shade.

JW Marriott Grand Lakes

Grande Lakes, Orlando

Families dreaming of summers soaked in sheer excitement are sure to head for Orlando and at the Grande Lakes you can make the best of both worlds. On your doorstep you have the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the delights of Downtown Disney. Yet the lush green forests, the gorgeous gardens and the cooling lake mists ensure you feel at serene harmony with nature far from the plaster cast chaos. At the JW Marriott Grand Lakes you can dine with delectable views of the green fairways, sleep in soft fine cotton sheets and wake to sip ripe roast coffee whilst watching the birds skim across the lake. Take a cooling dip in the sparkling blue pool and rent a kayak to meander along the waterways beneath the shade of low hanging mangrove trees. Whilst the kids will be scuttling on the shuttle to the adrenaline high heights of Universal Studios with its wet n wild rides, its dizzying roller-coasters and its endless scores of attractions, adults will be more than content to snack on sushi, tee off at the world famous Ritz Carlton golf course or indulge in supremely elegant spa delights beneath the beating wings of a beautiful Florida splashed summer.

Celebrate Summer Event With Marriott Hawaii

Kauai, Hawaii

When summer rolls around all you want to do is to be outside and embracing the bounty of nature, there is no where you can do that better than in the sublimely fragrant, fresh and picture perfect paradise of Kauai. Known as Hawaii’s garden island, Kauai is a veritable playground of pure silver waterfalls, glowing greens, hibiscus flowers bursting in the night, and world class surf on the brilliant white and blue beaches. The Kaua’i Marriott Resort brings barefoot luxury to your door, this is a resort where you don’t need to pull out the airs and graces to get a drink at the bar, it’s a place where you can laugh loudly, sip cocktails on the beach, splash with the kids and spend an afternoon gazing and grazing as you complete the challenging Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course. There is so much to do that active families will be fueled by endless fun, whether its learning to stand up on the board with your first surfing lesson, exploring Wailua Falls only five minutes away, or meandering in a kayak down the lava rock grotto fantasy of the emerald river. As the gentle evening draws close around your shoulders you can enjoy fresh seafood with an elegant Japanese twist and waterside views at Toro Tei Restaurant.

Celebrate Summer Event With Marriott South Carolina

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

South Carolina is all about seaside charm, there is something utterly romantic about spending the summers in this golden era glow of big wide burnt orange sunset skies, dreamy swamplands, glorious beaches, tall ice cream sundaes and zinc covered noses. Hilton Head Island is without a doubt one of the best spots for a good old fashioned innocent summer holiday perched on the precipice of the surging Atlantic swell. With a stay at Marriott’s Surfwatch you can rest easy in your own sweet and spacious villa boasting splendid garden views and plenty of privacy. Ocean front pools, private stretches of glittering sand, and manicured gardens with footbridges and fountains make the perfect cooling paradise for play and relaxation beside the shore. With Harbor Town close by you can wander beneath the historic lighthouse, souvenir shop in the darling boutiques, and taste glistening oysters and the finest seafood at the Old Oyster Factory or discover craft beers at The Salty Dog Café in South End. Beaches, wildlife and plantations provide plenty of space for young ones to burn of steam and parents can enjoy an endless array of golf courses, tennis courts, and day trips to sweet Savannah and chic Charleston.
