Spring break will be here before you know it. Many of you may have already booked a vacay to sunny Florida or Mexico but the rest of you may now be scrambling. Luckily for you, I've put together a list of the 7 cities you absolutely NEED to explore in 2018. What's even better is that all these places participate in the Go City Card. That means that you can spend less time worrying about where to explore and more time figuring out what you're going to do when the sun sets.
Although NYC may be a LITTLE chilly for some people (last year it snowed... in March), there's still no shortage of things to do. Embrace your inner Gossip Girl as you traipse about the city (before going to sit on the steps of the Met). Reenact Sleepless in Seattle and visit the top of the Empire State Building. Lady Liberty is waiting for you!
A destination ALL spring breakers (and even just long weekend trippers) should hit up at least ONCE in their lives. Will Smith knew what he was doing when he wrote about Miami. Take a break from partying and visit the Miami Seaquarium or Jungle Island. If you want to take a break from Miami itself, you can always go on a day trip to Key West (where Key Lime Pie is from).
Vegas is called 'Sin City' for a reason. It's inevitable that you will spend most your time there by the pool (or at the casino). However, when you're NOT trying to be Alan from The Hangover at the blackjack tables... you can hit up the High Roller Observation Wheel to see the city at its best angles. You can also make certain that you see a celebrity... by visiting Madame Tussaud's.
You don't have to be on your Honeymoon to take a trip to Hawaii. Bask in the sun and surf, maybe even take a waterfall hike. If you're more focused on the surf part of "sun and surf", sail on a catamaran then take in a dolphin encounter. Perhaps you'll have a Flipper experience all your own.
Hop off the plane at LAX with a dream and a cardigan... or maybe just a dream? LA is an extremely big place and it's going to be hard to see it all. Make sure you hit up the Santa Monica pier and see the Hollywood sign. I mean can you REALLY say you've been to LA if you don't have an insta with the Hollywood sign in the background? I mean... I guess you can but just THINK of all the likes you'll get.
Why stay stateside when you can visit Dubai? Guys, you can SKI in the DESERT. Visit the Burj Khalifa and tell all your friends how you went to the top of one of the tallest buildings in the world. If you're a little more daring then you can go base jumping OR skydiving... your choice.
Stay classy on your vacation by hitting up the go-to spots of San Diego. If you go to San Diego and DON'T go to the zoo then... you're just missing out. While Ron Burgundy may have been off about what the city's name means, he wasn't too far off of a fun activity. Get your mind out of the gutters, I just mean whale watching of course. Also, San Diego is where Legoland is and any excuse to be a kid again is an EXCELLENT excuse.
