3 Ideas for Graduation Trip Destinations
Pulling all-nighters to study for a big exam — done. Writing dozens of pages for thesis papers — bye-bye! Staring at a graphing calculator hoping it will reveal an answer — a thing of the past. You’ve put in the hard work and will soon have a new adjective attached to your name: College graduate.
Congratulations! Now, it’s time to celebrate.
One of the best things you can do in the time between graduation and entering “the real world” is to treat yourself to a getaway! School has armed you with the knowledge of new places, cultures and ways of thinking. Now’s the time to
go experience those things firsthand.
Planning graduation travel always starts with one important question: Where to go? Thankfully, there are several top graduation trip destinations to choose from that will quench any traveler’s thirst for adventure.

Yellowstone. There you can go white-water rafting, hiking through spectacular landscapes, or watch Old Faithful blow off some
The Island Life
After putting in long hours at school, you might have one goal in mind: Relax! For those seeking sun and sand, the world is your oyster. There are tried-and-true options like Hawaii or the Caribbean, but
why not try ferrying around the
Greek Isles to see scenic Santorini or dance the night away in Mykonos?
For those who think outside the box, try Australia or New Zealand. They’re encircled by gorgeous beaches and, hey, they’re technically islands!
