One of the best times to globe-trot is when you’re in your early to late 20s. You’re just settling into your new job, and you don’t have many responsibilities yet. You have more flexibility to take things in and enjoy the sights. Here are some of the best places to travel for young people.
Before you start getting to the heart of Puerto Rico, you might want to do some shralpin skateboarding at Aguadillas Skate Park. Take in the beautiful Caribbean flair of Puerto Rico and enjoy hitting the vert for some air.
The cool thing about going to Puerto Rico is that you don’t need a passport if you have a valid U.S. ID. It makes a nice random trip you can enjoy with your family and friends. Get yourself a piragua to cool things off. Enjoy the beaches in Old San Juan while you take in the old culture.
Go to El Yunque National Rainforest, where you can take a hike on the trail. After some hiking in the Caribbean heat, you can swim and bathe under the waterfalls. It’s an amazing national U.S. Rainforest to see.
La Placita de Santurce in San Juan is a hotbed for restaurants, clubs, and bars if you want to let loose in the city.
There’s nothing like the country of love. Of course, Paris is one of the best places to go if you’re looking for fashion, nightlife, and some incredible museums.
Check out Musée des Arts et Métiers to get a bit of technological history in your life. The arts and crafts in the title might confuse you, but the big 1938 TV on display will open your eyes.
The Eiffel Tower is a spectacular place to visit (the structure alone is iconic). Enjoy some French cuisine in the evening while you gaze into the night sky. It can make for a romantic evening or the perfect pregame for some friends.
If you enjoy wine, Bordeaux is a mainstay. You might want to take a trip to Cognac to taste the region where you get some of your favorite Brandy. You and your friends can check out various things in this incredible country.
South Korea is a unique place. Seoul is one of the entertainment capitals of the Far East. BTS is a global Korean pop (K-pop) group that performs high-energy shows all across the globe.
Check out an exhilarating soccer game at Seoul Olympic Stadium. If you like to take in the local trends, Apgujeong and Garosugil have some of the best fashion in the country.
Maybe you want to get away from the nightlife, fashion, and pop music. Head to Seongsan Sunrise Peak, where you can look at the volcanic craters. Also, you can see some rare plant species you can’t catch in your backyard.
If you want to do something completely different, go to Cheongdo for the bullfighting festival. The art contests, rodeo experiences, and magic shows are great alternatives if you’re not a fan of the gruesome bullfighting action.
Of course, you know about Italian food and wine. However, there’s much more than the delectable meals and drinks.
Rome has some of the most exciting art and architecture in the world. You’ll get inspired by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and the Colosseum.
Tuscany has stellar museums, such as The Uffizi Gallery (one of the most famous ones in the world). It has some of the most important works from the Renaissance period.
The Leonardo da Vinci museum also showcases some of his brilliant work.
Do some world travel with your friends to help you get some culture and fun outside your typical surroundings.
