Located off the coast of Scotland facing the North Sea, Aberdeen is one of the most beautiful cities in the United Kingdom. The city is extremely versatile, serving as the hub of the British oil industry as well as being a leader in arts and culture throughout Europe. Aberdeen vacations allow you to play some of the best golf in the world and see some of the finest performance art while enjoying classic architecture.
Aberdeen is widely known as the Granite City, and Aberdeen car rentals will give you the wheels to see this city's breathtaking landscape. The granite glistens like pristine silver at landmarks such as the Aberdeen Central Library and St. Mark's Church. Union Street is also filled with eye-catching granite-based buildings such as the Town House and the Music Hall. Outdoorsy types will enjoy Aberdeen's lush parks and gardens, which have won the city the Royal Horticultural Society's Britain in Bloom title many times over. Also be sure to check out the beautiful foliage in Johnston Gardens and take a long walk at Hazlehead Park. Aberdeen is also a sportsman's paradise, as golfers from around the world vacation in Aberdeen to play at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club. If you're more into the arts than you are sports, you can catch live music acts along Belmont Street any day of the week.
Aberdeen's thriving arts community is best highlighted by the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, the world's largest youth festival, which has been held every summer in the city since 1973. Catch up-and-coming performance artists and musicians from around the globe in a venue close to some of the best cheap hotels in Aberdeen. For a truly Scottish experience, the summer Highland Games focuses on traditional Scottish sports, such as caber tossing.
