Like all of our tips and travel posts, we wanted to not only highlight locations all over the globe, but also try to feature places that have something for everyone. So whether you’re looking to relax on a beach, explore new worlds, or party like it’s your birthday – we have something for you!
1. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Punta Cana is filled with beautiful white sand beaches and clear water. The Playa Arena Gorda and Macao Beach are two of the best beaches in the area.
Playa Arena Gorda’s shallow water makes it perfect for swimming and just wading through the water. In fact, UNESCO has cited Macao beach as one of the best beaches in the entire Caribbean.
Yes. Just yes.
2. Nice, France
There’s always a lot to do in France and Nice is no exception. Walk through the narrow streets of Old Town, visit some of their several museums, cathedrals, and other grand pieces of architecture, or shop at their wineries, farmers markets, and several other buying destinations.
Some other places of note include the Cathedrale Sainte-Reparate, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and the Cours Saleya.
3. Banff, Alberta, Canada
I know what some of you are thinking – we finally got out of this horrible winter and you want us to go to Canada!? We hear you. We’re from Texas and hate the cold. But some people are weird and already miss the winter and holiday season.
