Going on a trip with a bunch of friends and family always sounds like a great idea until it is time for you to plan the vacation. Do you really want to figure out travel, accommodations, and meals for a giant group? I don’t. I have enough trouble trying to figure out meals at home for myself, let alone an entire group out on vacation.
Some vacations are perfect for large groups, while others just prove to be a giant headache. Traveling with a bunch of people is always a great time though, and if it is your task to plan everything all that stress will truly pay off when you’re somewhere awesome with a bunch of your favorite people.
We’ve decided to make your life easier by taking the stress out of planning the large travel by giving you our favorite destinations we always choose when traveling with a large group.
Maine Windjammer Cruises
Take up to 40 people on a giant sailing ship and you will be sure to give everyone a trip to remember. The Maine Windjammer Cruises offer three-to-six day sailing cruises depending on the weather which is great for groups. On board everyone gets to enjoy delectable fresh baked goods and, of course, it wouldn’t be a Maine company if they didn’t offer their passengers a lobster bake. When you’re done cramming your gullet full of lobster and snacks then you can enjoy your time swimming off the ship or learning how to sail one of these massive ships. Or if you’re feeling lazy, just enjoy the beautiful water and the wildlife that accompanies the unreal scenery.
Riding roller coasters is something everyone can get behind and there’s no better place to do that than in the entertainment-filled Busch Gardens. Busch Gardens is great because it isn’t jam-packed like other parks and they offer fantastic group rates. YOu can either ride coasters all day, hit the water park, or if your group is full of energy try to hit both. You can please anyone at Busch Gardens from grandpas to babies with their awesome rides and great shows it is sure to be a hit with everyone in your large group.
Mackinac Island, Michigan
Ditch the cars and head to Mackinac Island in Michigan for a lot of old-school fun that has to be seen to be believed. You and your group will arrive by ferry and can get around the car-free island by carriages or bikes. On this island, you can see beautiful shops and galleries and eat some of the most delicious fudge you’ve ever tasted. Trust us, it’s amazing. Even if someone in your group hates islands, once they taste the fudge they’ll be feeling a-ok. The cute boutiques and shops are guaranteed to keep any group large or small busy for hours and the charm this island holds is absolutely undeniable. Traveling in a large group can sound like a bad idea but if you pick the right destination it will be a trip of majestic wonder.
