5 Cool and Unique Group Destinations to Visit in the New Year
For group leaders, the end of the year is a wonderful time to look back and take in all the group trips and events you orchestrated over the year. You can look back at all the photos and enjoy the excitement of being in a new place, reflecting on how things came together in the end or how they threw a curveball to make it even more interesting for your group.
Choosing Group Destinations for 2022
As wonderful as it is to reflect, this is also the perfect time to start group planning for the upcoming year. To help ensure that your 2022 group travel lineup is as exciting as possible, here are a few unique destinations to consider visiting - places that will surely leave lasting impressions for years to come.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Perfectly placed in the middle of the Gros Ventre and Teton mountain ranges, Jackson Hole is a quaint and unique group destination worth adding to your bucket list in 2022. Though quiet, Jackson Hole is filled with amazing ski resorts, venues, art, fun landmarks like the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and gorgeous mountain backdrops. Wyoming is often overlooked when it comes to group travel planning, but we recommend you rethink this destination for your group.
Lake Tahoe, California
One group trip destination not to be missed in 2022 is Lake Tahoe in California. In addition to the stunning scenery and tranquil surroundings, in both South and North Tahoe there are so many things to do that your group will never get bored. Overall, Lake Tahoe is a more popular destination with about 2.7M people visiting annually, but the blue lake, trails, and surrounding areas make it very much worth it.
Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine
A group planning endeavor would not be complete without visiting a national park. Because of that, think about heading to Maine to explore the rugged trails, bedrock, and rustic carriage roads found in Acadia National Park. The park offers an exceptional lineup of adrenaline-pumping activities like rock climbing and horseback riding to choose from. If not everyone in your group enjoys outdoor adventure, they can easily find amazing attractions that will meet their wanderlust desires in the nearby town of Bar Harbor.
When you think of Florida, chances are Disney or Orlando come to mind. But those are not the only cool places you can go to experience an authentic getaway - enter Stuart, Florida. In this picturesque Floridian town, your group can fish in the deep sea, shop at locally owned businesses, or just lounge on the beach without encountering too many other tourists. In a nutshell, if you want that authentic 'Old Florida' vibe for your group trip, Stuart is the place to experience it.
If you have not organized a trip to Alaska yet, there is no better time than now to do so. Anchorage has blossomed into a unique group destination that offers travelers adventure, relaxation, and sightseeing opportunities. What makes it even more unique is that each season offers special events. For example, you can go there in the summer to experience the Solstice Festival or go in the winter to experience the iconic Iditarod and Fur Rondy, or gaze up at the enigmatic northern lights.
