The Dreamiest Travel Destinations for 2023
It’s officially December, and we’ve all made our holiday gift lists and started shopping for the things we’ve been wanting all year. Just as important as planning the things we’ll give to one another is planning the experiences we’ll have in the upcoming year.
Around the holidays, I love to start dreaming of all of the places I could see in 2023. Whether it’s a family vacation, a romantic getaway, or a girls’ trip, there are so many amazing places to experience next year.
Pack a bag, and let’s start exploring!
Monteverde, Costa Rica
The city of Monteverde is world-renowned for its absolutely stunning cloud forests. The area has multiple wildlife reserves, botanical gardens, hiking trails, and more ways to experience the absolutely stunning natural wonders found in this area.
You can stay high up in the mountains at Chira Glamping or in the eco-friendly Cloud Forest Lodge.This is the perfect 2023 travel destination for an adventurous couple in need of a break from the hustle and bustle.
The best time to travel to Iceland is July or August, so you have plenty of time to plan an amazing family vacation to this one-of-a-kind destination. There are a wide variety of ways to experience Iceland. You could ride on an all-inclusive train ride through Scandinavia, book a nighttime gaze at the Northern Lights, or explore the city of Reykjavik.
Iceland is safe and accommodating for travelers with children and provides a wide variety of unique hotels. Unique wildlife experiences are a vital part of any family trip to Iceland. Your kids will love seeing whales, puffins, and even reindeer!

Perth, Western Australia
A great girls’ trip has the perfect balance of exploration, relaxation, and indulgence. Let’s break down why Perth works:
- Exploration: One essential part of a Perth vacation is a day trip to Rottnest Island. This island boasts 60 beaches and is home to one of the cutest animals in the world, the quokka.
- Relaxation: Perth is more remote than Sydney or Melbourne, so it’s been able to maintain a laid-back vibe. Life in Perth is centered around the calm waters of the Swan River and the Indian Ocean
- Indulgence: Perth is a vineyard town and has the unique distinction of having the most outdoor dining of any city in Australia. It’s an ideal destination for a group of girlfriends that appreciates a great meal and an even better glass of wine.
The perfect guys’ getaway has comfortable accommodations, fun nightlife, and an opportunity for memorable experiences. Munich is a great spot for a comfortable but exciting guys’ trip. Generally known for Oktoberfest, Munich is a fun getaway year round.
Outside of the world-famous beer halls, there are great opportunities for exploration. The BMW-Welt and Museum is a great place to visit for car lovers. You can even watch some river surfing at the Eisbach on the Isar River.
Seychelles is an archipelago off the coast of Eastern Africa with a reputation for unbelievably stunning and pristine beaches. This is the perfect location for a renewing solo retreat. Because it offers a mix of cultural exploration, luxury accommodations, and natural wonders, Seychelles is a great pick for an unforgettable trip in 2023.
While Seychelles offers tremendous (pricey!) luxury accommodations, there are also a wide variety of places to stay for solo travelers who are looking for a better rate. To experience some of the amazing culture of Seychelles, make sure to stay near the main city of Victoria.
