new year travel goals

It's 2024, and we've got ambition pulsing through our veins for the year ahead! Sure, the usual goals like staying healthy and aiming for that big work promotion are commendable, but why not turn up the excitement by planning an epic year full of bucket-list adventures? We all work incredibly hard, and when it comes to our hard-earned vacation time, settling for the ordinary just won't cut it.

Here at Emily's Travel, we're all about turning your dream trip into a reality. All it takes is a bit of planning, putting down a deposit, managing those payments, and making sure your passport is ready for take off. There's absolutely nothing standing between you and finally stepping into that dreamy destination you've seen in pictures but never experienced firsthand.

We get it – there are the usual go-to trips like the family vacation or the annual anniversary getaway. But this year, let's take the adventure level up a notch. How about adding an extra trip to the mix? Bring along your best friends, invite your parents, or finally get some alone time as you send the kids to grandma's. Life's too short to keep pushing back those travel experiences you deserve.

On this blog post, we're sharing our top travel goals you should be planning to take new adventures this new year. Get ready to turn those travel dreams into unforgettable realities!


New Year Travel goals TO Plan

family vacation travel goals

Family Vacation: Creating Lasting Bonds

For families, travel is an opportunity to create lasting memories that teaches your children about the world through real-life experiences more than textbooks can. Consider destinations that offer a mix of relaxation and adventure. Europe, beach resorts, or national parks are ideal choices. Encourage quality time with your loved ones while exploring new cultures and enjoying activities that cater to every family member's interests.

Couples Vacation: Romantic Retreats

Ignite the spark in your relationship by planning a romantic getaway. Opt for intimate destinations that offer seclusion and breathtaking views. Whether it's a beachfront villa, a cozy mountain cabin, or a cultural European escape, choose a location that sets the stage for romance. Consider activities like spa treatments, candlelit dinners, or exploring local attractions hand-in-hand.

solo vacation travel goals

Solo Vacation: Embracing Independence If you've never embarked on a solo adventure, make 2024 the year to do so. Solo travel offers a unique opportunity for self-discovery and personal growth. Choose a destination that aligns with your interests, whether it's a serene retreat in nature, a bustling city exploration, or an immersive cultural experience. Step out of your comfort zone and embrace the freedom of solo travel. As your travel advisors, we will be sure to guide you for a safe and smooth trip.

River Cruise: Navigating Scenic Waterways Explore the world from a different perspective by embarking on a river cruise. Years ago when we first set sail on an immersive cruise like this, we weren't sure what to expect, but were blown away by the experience. Sail along picturesque waterways, passing through charming villages and iconic landmarks. River cruises provide an intimate and leisurely way to discover new destinations. Consider iconic rivers like the Rhine, Danube, or Mekong for an enchanting journey filled with cultural richness. This is something you can do as a couple, with adult friends, or with the family.

cruise travel goals

Sailing on a Brand New Cruise Ship: Around the World Adventures at Sea

If you're a cruise enthusiast, set sail on a brand new cruise ship for the ultimate experience. Discover the latest innovations in onboard amenities, dining, and entertainment. Whether it's a Caribbean escape, an Alaskan expedition, or a Mediterranean odyssey, modern cruise ships offer unparalleled comfort and excitement. This year new cruise ships are sailing from Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Cunard, Celebrity, and Disney Cruise Line. Ask us about new ships and sailings!

Cold Weather Destination: Embracing Winter Wonders Break away from the traditional warm-weather vacations and embrace the charm of cold weather destinations. Head to snowy landscapes for winter sports, cozy cabin retreats, and the magic of snow-covered scenery. From the Northern Lights in Alaska to adventuring in the Swiss Alps, cold weather destinations offer a unique and enchanting experience. Our favorite cold weather experience is traveling on a Christmas Markets river cruise because it makes the season truly enchanting and brings you back to what the holidays are all about. Given that it is winter now, a snowy escape may not sound the most appealing. However, you might want to consider planning for a November or December trip ahead of time to make your winter holiday easily attainable.

New US City with Besties: Unforgettable Urban Escapes Plan a getaway with your best friends and explore a new US city together. Each city has its own unique charm, from vibrant nightlife to cultural hotspots. Whether it's the iconic streets of New York City, the artistic scene of Portland, or the southern hospitality of Nashville, discovering a new city with your besties promises laughter, adventure, and unforgettable moments.
