Response to “5 Travel Destinations Worth Visiting In Your 20s

Picture this: Your long-distance besties are in need of a vacation. You jump on a FaceTime call and check out Airbnb. These are some great places to go on a girl’s trip or meet up with your college besties, all while on a budget.

New Orleans, Louisiana

One of my besties lives in NOLA and oh my goodness, it was a blast. Whether you’ve never been there or been there a dozen times, there is always something to do and it is so much fun. There is plenty of historic sites (bonus points if that area is haunted by supposed ghosts) and Bourbon Street is sure to help you have a good time. Pro tip: October-March is past the tourist season and not as hot as the peak summer months.

1.       A Weekend at the Lake

I don’t have a specific “go-to” area, but go to any place with a waterfront view! Renting a boat by the hour is affordable if you split the cost between your friends. These kinds of weekends got me through my broke summers in college. My best friends would all get together after finishing our summer jobs and take an hour’s drive to the lake near my hometown and not leave until Sunday night. It was one of those points in my life that I will never forget.

Tampa, Florida

Now Tampa in particular is pretty affordable compared to other Florida cities. Tampa is only an hour away from Orlando so if you are a Disney fan, this a great option if you don’t want to fight the Disney family crowds. Tampa has a lot of different excursions including zip-lining, an Adventure course, and so many more options for fun activities.

Chicago, Illinois

I am lucky in that I have a lot of college friends that live in Chicago so I always have a place to stay. My best friends from high school are all from the St. Louis area, so between having a free place to stay, and a quick train ride that ranges $40-60 round trip? It’s a no-brainer to go up for the weekend. You got a lakefront view, plenty of attractions and great food options.

1.       An All-Inclusive beach trip!!

My high school besties are planning an all-inclusive trip to Mexico next year. It’s our way of celebrating our 10-year friendiversary and us all having full-time jobs. While I haven’t experienced this kind of trip, I imagine having less stress knowing that everything is paid for and you can just enjoy being with your friends.

Life is too short. Take your PTO. Go on that spring break trip. And go take that vacation.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
