Celebrate the 4th of July — Abroad

The Bahamas

The underwater visibility and number of coral reefs lends itself to unmatched scuba diving and snorkeling.

Bora Bora is a small South Pacific island northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia. A major tourist destination, one of its distinguishing characteristics is guest bungalows perched over the water on stilts. The island is surrounded by sand-fringed islets, a lagoon, and a barrier reef. Scuba diving is a popular activity here and coconut trees are plentiful.

Montreal, Canada

Montréal is the largest city in Québec, Canada.  Set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and predominantly French-speaking, it’s considered the cultural heart of Canada. Its downtown area is home to many cultural and social events in the summer, particularly festivals. Come for the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the largest jazz festival in the world, and stay for the largest comedy festival in the world, Just For Laughs. Montreal has a rich classical art culture.
