It is time for you to tick off some of those dream vacations on your bucket list. Here are some of the top destinations you should work into your next vacation.
La Dolce Vita, Italy
Trying to plan that ultimate romantic vacation without including a cliched visit to Paris? Then how about you head over to the romance capital of the world and take part in the sweet life. From Vespa tours in Rome, and beach days on the Amalfi Coast, to art tours in Florence and floating down the Venice canals in a gondola, Italy offers everything to make a romantic vacation with your partner a dream come true. Plus the food (and gelato!) is just amazing.
Nothing says vacation in Africa like local festivals and markets, and the souks of Marrakech in Morocco are the perfect representations of these. Spend your days exploring the ancient architecture and labyrinthine souks of the Medina, and your nights eating your way through cheap local African cuisine in the Djemaa El Fna. The accommodations are cheap and the sights are plentiful. What more could you ask for? A camel trip through the Sahara desert, maybe? Join an organized tour or book a car to drive down to the desert at your own pace to book a spot at one of the desert camps. Here’s your chance to finally experience the rich culture of Africa in a city that is as ancient as they come.
If your idea of a perfect vacation involves eating your way across the world, then one of your very first stops should be this little town in Peru. Voted the culinary capital of South America with some of its restaurants listed in the top ten around the world, you can let your palate do the vacationing for you while in Lima. Try famous Peruvian dishes from world-renowned chefs or make your way across the city exploring the rich street cuisine. Either way, this is one vacation you won’t forget in a hurry.
Northern Lights, Alaska
What better way to appreciate the majesty of nature than to spend a night (or five) watching the Aurora Borealis in Fairbanks, Alaska? If you go in the winter months, you can also incorporate a lot of other activities like skiing, snowboarding and dogsledding into your days while you spend your nights observing the beauty of the Northern Lights. You can also choose a traditional Alaskan cruise and experience the area’s glaciers and wildlife by cruise ship. Book your trip in advance to avoid any last-minute disappointments and enjoy the best Alaska cruise vacation you’ll ever have.
Skydiving in the Grand Canyon
For the adrenaline junkies, you’ll have no better story to tell than a day spent skydiving through the 277 miles of towering cliffs in the Grand Canyon. Take a mule ride or hike to the top of the rim to take in the breathtaking vista of multi-hued rocks before diving off to enjoy a rush of adrenaline like no other. And if that is not enough excitement for you, you can also go white-water rafting through the canyon.
Live a little. Take some time off. Explore some of these great vacation experiences, tick off some of those items on your bucket list and make some new memories with the ones you love. You’ll be glad you did.
