Earning a college diploma is a momentous accomplishment, achieved through countless hours of late night studies. You are now ready to join the real world, but first, you might consider a little well-deserved break. While you have the time and energy to spare, why not celebrate with a trip of a lifetime. To help you decide where to go, here are some of the best vacation destinations for fun and memorable experiences.

Sydney, Australia

Known for its friendly, relaxed residents, Sydney’s mild, sunny weather encourages outdoor activities including beachside lounging and water sports. Although you might see many fit people in swimsuits frolicking on Sydney’s numerous beaches, this isn’t your typical Spring break destination. This world-class metropolis also features plenty of performing arts venues, cultural events and major attractions like the Sydney Opera House.
