Planning your dream vacation can be one of the most frustrating, yet exciting things you’ll ever do. Where do you go? What will you do? Where are you going to stay? These are all questions you’re going to ask yourself time and time again as you work through the process of planning the perfect getaway. This guide will help you select from some of the top vacation destinations in the world so, at the very least, you’ll be able to work out where you’d like to go.
As far as your activity plans and accommodations, you may be on your own. However, the destination you choose will have a pretty big impact on your overall experience so, once you’ve got that worked out, the rest will likely fall into place pretty easily.
The British Virgin Islands
When it comes to tropical vacations, there’s nothing quite as amazing as a trip to the British Virgin Islands. You’ll find multiple tropical activities to explore here including sailing, water skiing, parasailing, and even deep sea diving. Whether you’re interested in adventure on the high seas or you’d rather just sit by the beach with a drink in your hand, the British Virgin Islands is the ultimate tropical destination.
Costa Rica is another highly popular tropical destination. Comparing Costa Rica to the British Virgin Islands, however, is like comparing apples to oranges. In Costa Rica, you’ll have the rare opportunity to spot the magnificent blue whale, climb the face of a waterfall, and hike through the country’s expansive rain forests. Of course, if you’d still rather lay out by the beach, Costa Rica has over 800 miles of coastline just waiting for you to stretch out a blanket and relax.
Las Vegas, Nevada
If gambling sounds more exciting than a beach getaway and you’ve never been to Las Vegas before, make this your next destination. Filled with live entertainment unlike anything else you’ll find in the United States, casinos covering every square mile of the city, and a themed wedding chapel on virtually every corner, you never quite know what you’re going to see when you visit Sin City. When you’re done hitting up the slots and taking in the shows, practically every hotel in town offers resort-quality amenities for when you need to relax before heading back to the action.
If you simply can’t get enough of tropical destinations, consider a trip to Tahiti. This tiny island getaway is considered by many to be the most beautiful location in the world, and one glance at your surroundings when you arrive might be all you need to be convinced. Tahiti is also one of the few destinations in the world that offers bungalows that are built directly over the ocean. There’s literally nothing quite like a trip to Tahiti so, if you’re looking for a tropical destination you’ll never forget, this is the place for you.
Vancouver, British Columbia
Vancouver is another city destination that has a lot more to offer than you might expect. A far cry from the crazy nightlife that Las Vegas has to offer, though, a trip to Vancouver is better suited for people who want to slow down and enjoy the outdoors but don’t necessarily need a beach to find their Zen. City cruises, guided tours, and food are what it’s all about here. One of the best things about visiting Vancouver, though, is the fact that they offer free public WiFi for everybody, with no strings attached. If you don’t like the idea of being “unplugged” on your travels, Vancouver is the place for you.
No matter where you decide to go, the important thing is that you choose a destination that fits your personality. Still, you can’t go wrong with any one of these five amazing vacation destinations.
