Do you want to create lifelong memories with friends? Then travel! Traveling is an excellent way to enjoy life after a tedious school year full of nerve-wracking exams or long days of working non-stop. Whether you take a day trip or spend the summer away, there’s nothing better than exploring the world. Here are some fun things to do with friends on your travels:
1. Indulge in leisure activities.
Explore your interests and pursue your creativity. Try out a new instrument or hone your photography skills as you explore. Do some research before you travel, and discover what the city is known for. Some cities boast fun karaoke bars or bowling bars, so have the time of your life!
2. Explore a nearby city or town.
Do you really know the cities around yours? Try a walking tour now with all of your college friends. You’ll learn about all of the secret gems and historical landmarks that you may not have appreciated before. To find out more about the local culture, try socializing with locals and where they love to visit nearby.
3. Go for a bike ride.
Biking is an excellent way to exercise, and it’s even more fun in a group setting. Rent some bikes, and get some fresh air as you explore your destination’s hidden treasures.
4. Spend time on the water.
Visit a nearby beach or lake to enjoy water-related activities. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and rafting are all great ways to spend time outside. You can even turn these enjoyable activities into a friendly competition to make them even more fun with your college friends!
5. Visit a theme park.
Whether you love cotton candy, shooting games, roller coasters, or water rides, you can find all of your favorite activities at a theme park! Make sure to search online for amusement parks, as most of them offer student discounts.
6. Volunteer for a good cause.
The world is brimming with underprivileged children, endangered plant species, and threatened animals, so do some good on your trip. When you volunteer, you get to see new places, mingle with locals, make friends, and do good for the world.
7. Go hiking.
Hiking is a great group activity. Head into the woods and spend time with your friends in the fresh air on a soothing stroll through nature. Lace up your hiking boots and explore beautiful mountains and green fields. And if you’re competitive, race each other to the end of the trail!
8. Enjoy an outdoor concert.
Great travel weather lends the perfect opportunity to enjoy live music outdoors. So get together with your college friends for an outdoor concert at the park. Listen to bands and enjoy food, drinks, games, crafts, and giveaways. Concerts are the perfect excuse to revel in a night full of music and socializing!
9. Go camping.
When you travel, pitching a tent or renting a cabin in the woods can help you connect with nature. Have a bonfire, too! Sleeping under the stars with friends is a mind-blowing experience.
No matter how you choose to travel with your college friends, be creative! Take videos and pictures of all the activities you participate in. And of course, remember to bring home souvenirs! You’re sure to take a trip that you’ll remember forever!
