With the coming of each new year, millions of people are making resolutions, goals, and lists for the days to come. While everyone will have different visions and ideas of the perfect year ahead, there are a few things that should be a priority on agendas everywhere. Travel is one of them.
This world has so much to offer. One of the best things about travel is that it’s so versatile. Whether you’re interested in traveling thousands of miles from home or sticking to quicker trips, there’s something for everyone. Here are four destinations to think about adding to your 2023 travel calendar.
1. The Mediterranean
Have you ever dipped your toes in the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean, indulged in the plethora of its food and drink, or immersed yourself in its incredible culture? If not, 2022 is the year to change that.
While there are endless options for traveling there, you might find some options more suited to your preferences than others. If you prefer to have the planning done for you and want to ensure you get the most out of your vacation, booking an Italy Greece cruise could be just the ticket.
Alternatively, if you’re feeling adventurous and are comfortable with keeping your agenda more open-ended, consider renting a privately owned home or trying out working at a local farm in exchange for food and lodging.
The Mediterranean truly has something for every traveler, whether you’re interested in cuisine, local culture, history, or art. Many areas of it are very family-friendly but remember to do plenty of research first to determine which locations sound best for you.
2. United States National Parks
Are you passionate about the outdoors? Do you love connecting with nature? Does having a long list of options appeal to you? The United States is host to an incredible group of national parks, which are open, accessible, and ready for you and your family to visit.
If visiting the parks is up your alley, consider renting an RV to complete your trip. Not only will this allow you to camp close to whatever location you’re most interested in, but RVing will give you a whole different perspective on your travels as well.
Whether you’re interested in the parks in California, Maine, or anywhere in between, you’re bound to find destinations that fit the bill. The challenge here is, where will you go first?
3. Costa Rica
Costa Rica is home to some of the world’s most amazing beaches, landscapes, and people. It’s also the perfect destination if you’re in the mood for adventure.
While Costa Rica is known for having world-class surfing, don’t forget about its whitewater rafting or kayaking, rainforest hiking, ziplining, horseback riding, and rock climbing. If you’re not sure where to begin your planning, don’t worry — there are many booking agencies and tour companies that have your back.
However, Costa Rica isn’t just for adventurers. There are so many ways you can relax, such as with a soak in volcanic mud or even with an authentic yoga workshop.
4. The White Mountains, New Hampshire
While you might not think of heading to New Hampshire as a must-do on your travel itinerary, it’s absolutely worth the consideration. Not only are its White Mountains incredibly beautiful, but they’re also amazing to hike because there’s a mountain for almost everyone and every skill level.
If you can, schedule enough vacation time so you can explore everything the region has to offer. Note that it’s not just hiking that’s available. There are many amazing sights to see and things to do, making it incredibly family-friendly and a repeat destination for many families.
Traveling in 2023 should be something on everyone’s list. No matter if you’ve got a few day trips planned or the vacation of a lifetime, you’re sure to have a wonderful and rewarding experience when you go somewhere that has a lot to offer. Where will you go this year?
