There are a whole host of reasons why you might be thinking of going away with a group of friends. You could be planning a birthday or bachelorette party to remember, a high school reunion trip, or just feel like catching up with the people closest to you. If you all have the same interests and enjoy similar experiences, finding a location that will suit everyone should be straightforward. However, if you have a mixture of personalities, it can be tricky to choose a destination that will keep everybody happy. If that’s the case, or if you just fancy doing something a bit different, try some of these ideas.
If you all enjoy sports, you could take a trip based on a sport you all enjoy, or alternatively, one none of you have tried before. You might consider a golfing break, or if you want to combine sports with some chilling out on the beach, perhaps a surfing or snorkeling trip. Skiing is a perfect activity for the winter months, and there are more than eight hundred resorts in North America to choose from. For example, you could book a rental lodging Deer Valley way in Utah and have your own condo to share. In the summer months, you might want to try being a cowgirl and help with a cattle drive, which is a great way to get away from modern life and spend time with a few close friends.
If sports aren’t your thing, the same principle can be applied to almost any hobby or pastime you all enjoy. Many hotels and restaurants offer cookery school courses for instance, or if you’re fond of a glass of wine, vineyards do some excellent tours and tastings. Painting, sculpture, pottery and other creative arts are all good candidates for a special break, combining the enjoyment and life-enhancing experience of getting creative with an opportunity to relax and take pleasure in each other’s company.
If you haven’t got the luxury of being able to book a weekend or longer, then you can still have a lot of fun and do something different on a day trip. Taking a river cruise or a boat trip around one of the Great Lakes is an ideal way to kick back and enjoy the view. How about a trip in a hot air balloon? Or if you have a more adrenaline-fuelled experience in mind, maybe a helicopter or private plane would be more your style. For something completely unexpected, have a go at a circus skills workshop – there’s bound to be a lot of laughter involved, and you may discover a hidden talent as well! For those with a penchant for crime solving, you could try a locked room experience, where you have to work together to solve clues and crack the mystery.
There are so many interesting and stimulating ways to enjoy your time together, and sharing a special experience is something you will treasure for years to come.
