Trip Ideas for 4 Older Teens

Jump to last reply

My friends and I are beginning to plan a trip for next summer, as a senior trip/graduation present. We will be 17/18 at the time of the trip. It will probably be about a week to ten days in length.

There is so much to see and do in Europe that we don't know where to begin our planning, or even what country we would like to visit. We all have varying interests so any activities or sights would be considered. Here are my questions.

1) Where is it relatively safe for unaccompanied teenagers to travel, and what places are best avoided?

2) What are some places or activities that would appeal to a younger audience? I am definitely interested in learning about a country's history and culture, but would not enjoy spending the entire week in museums. I would rather do things than see things, although preferably it would be a mixture of the two.

I may have more questions as our plans become more focused, but I think this is a good starting point. Thank you very much for any contributions.
