Trips for the Graduate

After several long years, you have finally earned your college degree. Now you have a month or two before you report to work and begin your career. Time for a break. Travel may sound fantastic, but where should you go? Here are a few suggestions.

English Majors

Let your favorite works inspire your trip. Hemingway fans should head to Key West to visit the author’s home, now a museum. If you are a Steinbeck lover, take one of the walking tours Carmel-by-the-sea CA and personally experience the places that inspired his novels. If you prefer English literature, stay the night in Agatha Christie’s house or celebrate her legacy by attending the mystery festival at Torquay, her coastal birthplace. Of course, no visit to England is complete without visiting Stratford-upon-Avon and seeing a play by The Royal Shakespeare Company.

Political Science and History Majors

This one is a road trip. Start in Washington, D.C., the seat of political power in America. It is home to the awe-inspiring Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. While there, be sure to tour the White House and get your free Library of Congress library card. Philadelphia is another must-see, for Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the National Constitution Center. Next, take in New York City where you can sail to the Statue of Liberty and nearby Ellis Island. Lastly, go to Boston to walk the Freedom Trail and stroll along the waterfront at Boston’s famed harbor.

Physical Education Majors

For you, a trip is not just about where you go — it is about what you do. For some of the best hiking and white-water rafting in the world, look no further than the Grand Canyon. If you prefer ascending sheer vertical rock faces, head a bit farther west to the climbing mecca, Yosemite National Park. Telluride, Colorado offers great skiing and snowboarding in winter; in summer you can kayak, hike, go mountain climbing or learn to hang glide. For lifetime bragging rights, hike to Everest Base Camp in Nepal or raft with hippos and crocodiles down the Zambezi River in Zambia.
