Test your luck in Vegas! This is a great destination for young adults traveling in a group. Appreciate the extravagance of the scenery and witness incredible performances such as Cirque de Soleil. Taste great drinks and great food all while in great company. Vegas is the perfect stop for a group of young people who love a night (or several) out on the town.

With over 400 National Parks to choose from, you can start searching for and planning group travel to a park near your home base! I recently spent three days exploring Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands National Park, and Guadalupe Mountain with two of my closest friends. Splitting the costs of housing and even choosing to camp can help make these unforgettable excursions more affordable and the perfect option of group travel for young adults.
