Ever wanted to take a girls' or guys' trip? Well, you've come to the right place! There are so many places all over the world, and even right here in the United States, that offer incredible opportunities for fun and adventure. Whether you want a guys-only trip or a girls' weekend, these places offer something for everyone. If you want to relax, we've got you. If you're going to head out on the town and enjoy the nightlife, we've got that too!  

If you live the country life, a trip to Nashville might be right up your alley! By following Nashville's Honky Tonk Highway you'll come across fun places like the Grand Ole Opry, and the Old Ryman Auditorium. Take a break from sightseeing and visit Robert's Western World for some good grub and awesome live country music. 

If country western isn't your jam, kick up the notch and visit Las Vegas. Sin City doesn't necessarily mean craps tables and high stakes poker games. You and your bestie can lay back in a luxury spa and swim your way through the afternoon at a glitzy pool club! There are tons of places to catch a bite to eat and watch live entertainment like Cirque Du Soleil.

Being on the water is usually a huge part of planning a vacation of the ages. Atlantic City is a great change of scenery that offers both the beach bum life and a hoppin' nightlife along the iconic boardwalk. 

As a foodie, you may enjoy Charleston, South Carolina. Many of the biggest names in the culinary world reside in Charleston. With old-world charm and world-renowned restaurants, this trip could be one to talk about for years to come. A boat ride with dolphins and mocktails is just the kind of spring break fun that many look for!

For the guys, if you aren't into shopping and wandering down the strip, the Wildman Whitewater Ranch in Wisconsin might be right in your wheelhouse. With paintball fields, whitewater rafting, fishing, swimming, and camping all on site, everyone can find something that they enjoy. Sometimes it's nice just to let loose and get a little down and dirty - showering is optional. 

For a more cultured trip, guys might like visiting Villa Cappelli in Italy. You can take a group of 20 people and not feel cramped at all! You can wander the countryside, golf, relax at the pool, and sample all the local delicacies. If you want to get fancy, you can take guys and girls and make it a coed trip that offers something for everyone! 

I hope these gave you some fun ideas for places to visit with your besties. There are tons of options for affordable travel and accommodations. Plus, if you take a group, everyone can pitch in! Wherever you go, if you are in good company, you'll always have fun! Enjoy being young and live your best life!
