If you're trying to plan a trip with your squad and can't decide where to go, use your sign as inspiration for choosing the perfect destination! Traveling with friends means you have to incorporate several different personalities into one itinerary. Whether your crew has a party-loving Leo or a budget-minded Capricorn, using the signs can help you find the perfect spot that everyone will enjoy for all your group trips this year, spring break and beyond.
Aries: New York City (March 21 – April 19)
Most vacations require driving—even if you forgo a road trip to fly, you typically need a rental car when you land to get to your hotel or to use for hopping around to sightsee. The sign least likely to be up for a lot of driving (and most likely to have some road rage)? Aries. Whether you're the Aries of the bunch or your friend is, why spend your trip feeling stuck in a car when you can head to NYC and go virtually everywhere with the extensive, 24-hour public transportation system? Jump on a ferry and arrive at the Statue of Liberty, hop on a train and get to Central Park, or get on a bus and get to the Rockaways! Being shuttled and chauffeured around instead of getting behind the wheel will let Aries keep their cool.
Taurus: New Zealand (April 20 - May 20)
Taurus loves adventure—to a certain extent. This sign loves to get out of town, unplug, and return to nature. But they also want to end the day in a comfy bed with a nightcap rather than in a tent, roughing it. This is why Taurus will love New Zealand. While New Zealand is known for extreme adventures, it’s also perfect for the the tamer, adventure-ish traveler. Taurus can explore on day hikes, taking in some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, but still return to their cozy lodging afterward, whether that's glamping or an eco-lodge. A stubborn Taurus can have it all in New Zealand!
Gemini: Chicago (May 21 - June 20)
One of the best parts of Gemini is their ability to hold on to their child-like wonder that others seem to lose as they get older. Chicago is the perfect destination to please Gemini’s outer adult as well as their inner child. Chicago is home to several top tier museums that will feed their never-ending curiosity, such as the Shedd Aquarium and the Adler Planetarium. Chicago is also home to numerous parks and beaches where they can lounge or frolic, and they can also get their fill of thrill by visiting The Ledge (a glass observatory 103 stories above the city), or learning what it’s like to fly at iFly. Chicago has endless options for the ever playful Gemini.
Cancer: Houston (June 21 - July 22)
Cancers tend to care more about the people on the trip than the destination itself. Cancers are usually the mom-friend of the group who loves nothing more than bringing people together, sharing bonding moments, and making sure everyone is having a good time. And it's hard to find something that beats a good meal to achieve that. For that, we're suggesting Houston. Houston's food scene offers plenty of diversity in terms of cuisine (from pho to Tex-Mex) and also atmosphere (the city's got food trucks, food halls, and fine dining), so you can spend the entire trip having great conversation over an even better meal. Cancer will love the feeling of diverse cultures coming together and the endless options to share food with their loved ones.
Leo: Miami (July 23 - August 22)
When Leos go on vacation with friends, they want it all—the beach, the photo ops, the parties, and more. For the iconic spring break experience, Leos should definitely head to Miami! (It's an iconic spring break spot for a reason.) But Miami is also a great destination year-round for Leos looking to let loose. They can live it up on the dance floor at one of Miami’s many salsa clubs, or party poolside at The Standard. Afterwards, recover on the one of the many pristine beaches, or book a pampering spa treatment at Loews to ease that hangover.
Virgo: Southwestern US Road Trip (August 23 - May 20)
Virgos are the ultimate planners. Give them any location and they’ll fill an itinerary. Why not embrace this skill—whether your own or a friend's—by planning a road trip through the southwestern U.S.? The Southwest has endless options of routes and stops, so you'll need the Type A mind of a Virgo. Choose from multiple routes like the famous route 66, the best cities to see like Phoenix or Las Vegas, and countless breathtaking national parks to explore, such as the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park, just to name a few. Most people would get overwhelmed by the choices, but not Virgo! Virgo will pick the best route, the perfect pit stops, and probably even have everyone’s favorite road trip snack ready to go.
Libra: Sri Lanka (September 23 - October 22)
Libras are that friend whose Instagram is carefully curated. Whatever the trend is they’re on top of it, posting it to their story before anyone else does. The ideal destination for a Libra (or your Libra friend) needs to please the “influencer” inside of them. With peace finally coming to Sri Lanka, they are opening up their arms to tourism and promoting the many beautiful sights and attractions that can be found on the gorgeous island. While the charming Libra will absolutely love getting to know the fascinating story and culture of Sri Lanka, they will also love being one of the first to experience it—and post about it.
Scorpio: Outer Banks (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpios are much more interested in a low-key vacation with friends than a party destination. Scorpios aren’t the most social sign, so being around large groups for extended periods of time can be draining for them, and they need their own space to decompress. The Outer Banks is a great option for these homebodies. They can rent a beach house where they can take in the scenic view from the comfort of their couch, but they're also only steps from a beach. And the beaches here are much less crowded than other popular destinations, so Scorpios will be happy and relaxed in the Outer Banks where they don't have to deal with people or noise.
Sagittarius: Alaska (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius is the ultimate traveler—the sign that’s already been there and done that and is constantly looking for the next thrill. Alaska is the ultimate undiscovered frontier. Go off the grid in Denali National Park (there are no trails, so go wherever your gut takes you). They can also have a chance to experience the Northern Lights, or trek through a glacier before it’s gone. Sagittarius will experience a thrill and adventure unlike any other they've had in this truly untouched wilderness. So the only question is, Sagittarius, are you up for the challenge?
Capricorn: St. Louis (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns can never fully turn off the responsible side of their brain. An ideal trip for them will require more than just lazy beach days and splurging on nightlife. Capricorns happiest when they feel like they are seeing all there is to see while still sticking to their budget. St. Louis is a great option for the Capricorn that never rests! The sprawling Forest Park spans over 1,300 acres and includes several free attractions such as the St. Louis Zoo and St. Louis Art Museum—enough to fill an entire day or more. They can enjoy a tour (and a drink) at Anheuser-Busch Brewery and visit the historic St. Louis Arch and the St. Louis walk of fame, all without spending a dime.
Aquarius: Hawaii (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarius is the thinker, the foreseer, the revolutionary. But let’s face—living in the future often leaves the Aquarius a little disorganized in the here and now, often leading to last-minute trips or changes of plans. For the Aquarius who wants to leave their comfort zone and experience new things, but never quite got around to renewing their passport, Hawaii is perfect place to go. Aquarius can dive into the coral reef, trek through rainforest, or even climb a volcano. They can also experience the Hawaii's unique culture and cuisine. Aquarius can find plenty to do without having to leave the country, or really, plan ahead at all.
Pisces: Isla Holbox (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces would love to head to a beach with their friends, but one without the typical raucous crowds. Instead, Pisces will want a vacation that focuses on complete restoration and wellness. Isla Holbox is the perfect spot for them! This island is an up-and-coming getaway for wellness retreats. They can practice yoga on the beach, indulge in traditional Mayan spa treatments, or just enjoy a tiki drink in a hammock. Any option will lead to a happy and chilled out Pisces.
