Aurora Borealis, the colored lights seen in the skies around the North Pole, the Northern Lights, from Bear Lake, Alaska, Beautiful Christmas Scene, Winter Star Filled Skies, Scenic Nature

While I would usually answer this question with “any warm place” I am less inclined to do so during this tremendous heat wave we’re having right now. So, to think cool thoughts, my dream vacation would be northern canada or Alaska–To trek through the snow all bundled up, see the gigantic polar bears, the clever penguins, the seals with liquid black eyes, and especially the aurora borealis.

I have always wanted to see the northern lights and (to anyone wanting to make it a real vacation as opposed to a dream vacation) this is a good year to take the trip. According to Discover magazine, the solar rays are more active this year causing your chances of seeing the northern lights to increase.

And there would be something magical about standing in the middle of a frozen lake looking up at the sky with no sound except for the mysterious crackling and whistling of the aurora borealis.
