For people who have already hit most of the places that they’ve wanted to travel to in their lives, it becomes a little bit more interesting trying to choose the next destination. Maybe the classic tourist destinations don’t have quite the same appeal, so a new grid of intrigue needs to be developed. What are some possible ways to create this new list?
Try looking up places to travel with considerations of where homes are for sale, which events are clustered around a place, what the weather is going to be like, how the cost of living compares, and what sort of general activity level is present in particular communities.
By Homes For Sale
Find out where homes are for sale, and figure out a way to travel to a nearby hotel or AirBNB listing. If there are a lot of sales in a particular neighborhood, then you can stay somewhere nearby and do a drive or walk-through of the area to get a closer look. Rich neighborhoods, poor neighborhoods, ethnic neighborhoods – just walking around areas with a high residential turnover rate can be very meditative for the traveler.
By Event Clusters
Check out festivals worldwide, and find out if there are any clusters of them. If there’s one great time to go on a vacation to a new place, it’s when there are going to be tons of things to do. And these festivals can be of any sort – music, food, culture, art. Pick the type of thing that you’re most likely to enjoy, and find a group of them that occur at some place some time, and plan out your next vacation.
Are you happier or more content with a certain kind of climate? Then find the places in the world with the most beautiful weather, find out what seasons is the best either for lots of tourists, or no tourists at all, and plan your trip. Great weather mixed with a great place to stay can sometimes be all you really need to have the perfect journey!
One way to make the most of your vacations is to find out what places have the lowest close of living, and then head there. Using this method, you can get the most bang for your buck, and essentially have a luxury vacation without paying out the nose for it. There may be limited things to do, or it might be the not the most interesting location ever, but if money is your priority, embrace the discount.
By Activity Level
If you want lots of activity (for instance lots of active people or tons of things to do), or no activity at all (a sleepy campground in a small town), that can be how you choose your next place to go as well. When it comes down to it, the more simply your priorities when choosing a destination, the more likely you’ll be happy with the result.
