If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
There is so much more in this world than Disney World, Myrtle Beach, and the streets of London. However, many travelers will find themselves in a rut after a while and have no idea where they should be traveling to next. In many of those scenarios, those travelers will simply return to one destination over and over again, as they find themselves getting bored with travel.
Well, we are here to tell you that travel can still be fun again, you just need to keep up to date with where all the cool kids are heading next. One year, the most popular destination may be Maldives, while three years later, it is all about the Lake Como region of Italy.
Here are 4 options when it comes to trendy traveling this year and where all the cool kids are going:
- Savannah, Georgia
There are thousands of cities throughout the United States, so you may be wondering what makes Savannah one of the trendiest options. Well, cool kids like yourself will find that you may have stepped back in time as you explore the cobblestoned streets complete with traffic circles in this historical city. Your days in this southern city will be filled with charming people, delectable cuisine, intricate architectural details, and even some time in the sand out on Tybee Island. We recommend that you stay in the downtown area, so that you can easily walk to almost any attraction that is worth seeing. Weekdays will be slightly more low-key, and the weekends get going early on Friday mornings and last long after the sun goes down on Sundays. Just remember while you’re visiting, that life is like a box of chocolates!
- Kaikoura, New Zealand
Kaikoura is on the eastern coast of the southern island within New Zealand and it has slowly been creeping up in popularity over the years, as past visitors have fallen in love with this destination completely. This area of the world is mostly well-known for whale watching, as many tours are successful with spotting at least one whale when they are out in the water. The best place for you to experience the marine life of this part of the world though is down in Kaikoura Canyon, because it is filled with not only whales, but albatross, dolphins, and New Zealand fur seals. As you sit on the local beaches, soaking in the rays of the sun, you will be rewarded with phenomenal views of the nearby mountain ranges. Those mountains will beckon to you, as if they are welcoming you to climb up to the top of them all. The best thing about Kaikoura though, is it is never crowded. Plus, you will never need to worry about having difficulty finding fresh seafood for any meal, as it is available in every restaurant.
- Rome, Italy
Years ago, Rome was on the hot-list when it came to vacations, but that was mostly due to the ancient ruins and Vatican City. While those areas are still quite popular, there are many people like yourself who are choosing to visit this fascinating city for the art, the evolving culture, and the health benefits that can be felt after just a short stay. You will do a lot of walking when you are in Rome and once you add in a healthy diet of three meals a day including wine, you may find that you are healthier than you have ever been. Plus, the locals move much slower in this city, so it is an excellent opportunity for you to train your brain and your body to not move at full-speed during your visit and in the future.
- Bali, Indonesia
Travelers can be so quick to judge a city or country and say that the areas are so overrated, and unfortunately, this has happened to Bali more times than we can count! Maybe those travelers didn’t take the time to see the true beauty and authenticity of the area during their stay or maybe they simply have a favorite destination somewhere else, and every other destination is overrated to them. One of the best reasons to have Bali up near the top of your bucket list is that you will meet some of the friendliest people in the world when you are there. Those same people will be more than willing to share their cultures and traditions with you, while also showing you exactly where you need to be to enjoy nature at its best. One of the features that you will love the most is that quite a few of the resorts offer villas out over the water. Those villas will give you a unique experience while you are relaxing during the day and contemplating what to do next as you look up at the stars in the sky in the middle of the night.
As you are planning your next getaway, we urge you to consider one of these four trendy travel destinations, as you will find plenty of other cool kids there to hang out with. Many of them will have the same interests that you do, which will lead to some interesting conversations, as well as adventures.
