Are you in your thirties? Well, congratulations! You are in the prime of your travel life. The timing has never been better for you to take dream vacations and check those destinations off your bucket list now.
- You finally have a real job
College is over and your unpaid internship is a distant memory. While you may still be battling student loans, you probably have access to more disposable income than ever before.
- Your hobbies and interests are fully-developed
Every trip isn’t a journey of self-discovery like it was in your twenties. You know what you like now and you can plan a trip around your favorite hobby.
- If you have kids, they are seeing the world for the first time
There is nothing as magical as watching a child see an elephant for the first time or ride their first roller coaster. These are memories that you will treasure forever. Take your children somewhere incredible in their formative years and make kindle a passion for travel in your them.
- Your vacation taste is more sophisticated
Travel in your twenties included a lot of spring break bashes and all-night music festivals. In your thirties, you’ve learned the value of a good night’s sleep and it’s allowing you to really enjoy your destinations.
- You finally learned how to use that camera
Grainy selfies are good or capturing a moment, but nothing rivals a well-exposed, full resolution photograph taken on a quality camera and lens. After a few years of practice, that DSLR you bought yourself for your thirtieth birthday is finally starting to pay off. You’re starting to fill your walls with your own artwork.
- You’re young enough to post on Instagram and too old to post on Snapchat
All the tweens are “snapping” away their family trips, never looking up from their selfie cameras. Travelers in their thirties are in the social media sweet spot. You aren’t dependent on social media, but you know how to use it to your benefit – as a tool to share beauty with your close friends and family.
- You probably have a travel partner
Even if you aren’t traveling with a significant other, you’ve probably got a close friend or sibling that meshes with your travel style. Finding that person can be a game changer for trip planning and getting the most out of every getaway.
- Your body can handle it
Many people say that their thirties are their best years for physical fitness. You can hike mountains, ski in the backcountry and sleep on a plane without feeling it for a week afterward.
- You can pay for your vacation with points you earned on business travel
If you travel for business, you are likely accruing points with every night of your trip. Best Western Rewards members redeem their points for free nights, rental cars, flights and more, making leisure travel more affordable.
