There are different types of people and therefore different types of travelers. When it comes to vacations, each traveler has a different perspective on the ideal adventure and what it entails. Before you book your next trip, here are a few spring vacation ideas that are sure to appeal to your tastes, no matter what type of traveler you are.
The adventurer: backpacking mountain trip
This type of person doesn’t necessarily have to love the outdoors, hiking, and physical activity. Of course, it certainly doesn’t hurt. This type of traveler does, however, like adventure, nature, and exploring. This person might also like to take trips that involve minimal cell phone signals and completely living in the moment. They want to get away from the world and disconnect.
Whether you’re camping in Big Sur or hiking somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, a backpacking mountain trip is ideal for the adventurer.
The romantic: big city life
This type of traveler is all about romance, which could include picturesque views, shows and plays, fancy dinner reservations, and anything elegant that usually involves one person and his or her significant other.
The perfect setting for this traveler takes place in a big city such as Boston or Chicago, where there are plenty to do and no shortage on date spots.
While the romantic doesn’t have to vacation in a big city — other great vacation spots for this type of traveler can include resorts all the way to hidden cabins in the woods — a big city provides plenty of couple options no matter what your likes and interests might be.
The backyarder: cheap local events & activities
These travelers like to vacation, but they don’t want to go far for a weekend getaway. Instead, they prefer to explore their cities and towns and save money in style. They’re still in search of adventure, but they know they can find something worthwhile in their own backyards. They aren’t interested in spending a lot of money on extravagant vacation destinations and plans.
This type of traveler might start with a bicycle rental in Hoboken, NJ and end with a parade or festival somewhere in the area. All that is needed is an open-mind to discover everything their town or city has to offer. These vacationers love to stop in random stores, shops, and museums while learning about their backyard’s history and taking in the culture.
The beach bum: venture to the water
These travelers love the water and want to be near the ocean above all else.
Their vacations might start with a jet ski rental in West Palm Beach or a walk on the Santa Monica Pier. They might even go snorkeling or parasailing. Nonetheless, these travelers love ocean resorts all the way to rentals on the beach, and their ideal vacation takes place on the water.
The family-oriented traveler: cruise the Caribbean
This type of traveler doesn’t want to go on vacation unless the entire family is onboard, so they search for something that takes minimal planning but features itineraries that cater to the tastes of every family member. They want options, but they also don’t want to plan every single minute of the trip.
The family-oriented traveler, therefore, finds the perfect vacation — a Caribbean getaway. He or she books an all-inclusive cruise so all meals — and quite possibly drinks — are covered. The family has plenty of excursion ideas to choose from, as well as daily entertainment for everyone involved. The cherry on top is being able to visit different countries and take in new cultures.
No matter what type of traveler you fancy yourself as, one of the ideas above is bound to provide you with the perfect spring vacation.
