Summer has arrived and we wanted to take a few moments to show off some of our favorite summer poster images. Whether you head to the beach, hike through the mountains, sail the great seas or just relax at home, there is a poster for everyone. Enjoy and let us know your favorite summer poster.
Spending any of the four seasons in Switzerland can be fabulous. Emil Cardinaux’s Swiss landscape images always convey an intimacy with nature and make the mountain hike oh so appealing in his stylish 1921 poster titled “Summer in Switzerland” – one of our favorite Swiss travel posters.
There is an abundance of fun to be had at the Lugano-Lido. Who says Switzerland does not have any beaches? Enjoy the finest Swiss sandy beach on the shores of Lake Lugano in beautiful Ticino. Summer just does not get any better.
Or does it? Maybe a cruise on the other side of the world can take you directly to paradise? Who would not want to join this group of travelers for a sunset picnic at a remote beach on a Caribbean island? Grace Line’s South America Cruises used to take you there during the 1950s and 60s.
Or perhaps you prefer to experience the polar midnight sun on a northern cruise to the Arctic Circle?
Here in the United States, many families might prefer to spend time away from home at the happiest place on Earth: Disneyland in Los Angeles, California. Disneyland opened its doors in 1955 but there are not a lot of posters promoting travel to the amusement park.
Those of us lucky enough to live in California are not complaining. We have plenty of beautiful places to visit. One of our most beautiful treasures is Yosemite National Park. No wonder almost 4 million people visit here each year.
We also have plenty of sun and beaches in California as the posters by Maurice Logan and Stan Galli can attest.
There is also plenty of fun in the sun along the US Gulf Coast. This beach ball is certainly dressed up for the occasion with the straw hat, the towel, and the cool ’60s sunglasses. Looks like the happiest beach ball we have seen.
Of course, there is always Hawaii with its warm tropical climate, the stunning natural scenery, and the endless beaches. And let’s not forget about the real spirit of Aloha: what could possibly be cooler than riding the waves on one of the Hawaiian islands?
Have a wonderful summer !
