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.


View of the city of London, England.

Bright Lights, Big City

For those who like the hustle and bustle of a metropolis, the options are endless. You probably got your beach fix in Cancun on spring break, so why not check out more Mexico has to offer by taking in the rich culture and cosmopolitan energy of its capital, Mexico City? Europe — a classic option for young travelers — has the charm of London, the romance of Paris, the edginess of Berlin … maybe it’s time to cross that backpack trip off your bucket list!

If you’d rather stick closer to home, find out if New York City truly never sleeps, or take a bit of your graduation money and hit up a blackjack table in Las Vegas. You’ve got to pay off those student loans somehow!


Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.

The Great Outdoors

If you’re looking to connect with nature, North America is chock-full of national parks. Canada’s oldest and most popular, Banff National Park, is a natural wonderland settled in the Rocky Mountain region that offers mountain climbing, camping, wildlife and more.

In the States, there’s Yosemite National Park, Zion National Park, or the world’s first national park, Yellowstone. There you can go white-water rafting, hiking through spectacular landscapes, or watch Old Faithful blow off some steam!


Sydney, Australia coastline.

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!

Wherever you travel, there are many considerations to make when planning your trip. One thing not to overlook? Travel insurance. Any number of things can affect travel plans, so ensuring your trip is covered is a great way to maintain peace of mind and your budget.
