While traveling solo or with your significant other can be fun, there’s something about going on a trip with your best friends. From Vegas to Greece or Australia, there’s so much of the world that is better to see with your friends by your side.
Here are some of the best travel destinations to visit with your best friend!
Mardi Gras in New Orleans
Mardi Gras aka “Fat Tuesday” is the last day for Catholics to indulge before Lent begins. In New Orleans, this means masked balls, colorful parades, loud music, and beaded necklaces.
If you can swing it, try staying in the French Quarter or in a hotel that’s within walking distance. They close down the French Quarter to vehicular traffic and taxis are few and far between.
Hit the Beaches in Mykonos
Greece has become the ultimate hot spot for beach parties, and each year Mykonos beach bar parties get better and better. With tourists touching down every single day, it’s no wonder that world-famous DJs stop by to play.
All of the beach bars in Mykonos will give you a direct view of the Aegean Sea making it the perfect place to grab a few drinks and dance the night away.

Picnic at the Eiffel Tower
Stop by Motte Picquet-Grenelle and pick up some wine, bread, and cheese before heading to the Champ de Mars. There’s never a wrong time to have a picnic under the Eiffel Tower but gather everyone up and go at sunset.
