4 Reasons Why Travel is the Best Gift of All

Ah, the Holidays. It’s that time of year again when the nationwide frenzy kicks in, and our morals are tested as we battle royale for the must-have gifts of the season. But what if we told you this could be the year you avoid all of that stress? Yes, we’re being serious.

You may have heard the age-old saying, “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” There’s some debate on who originally uttered these words of wisdom, but there’s no arguing the truth behind such a bold statement. This year, trade the stampeding lines of Black Friday for a comfortable seat with a Liberty Travel consultant, as they calmly and expertly help you give the gift that keeps on giving.   

 

Memories Last Longer than Gadgets

 

 

Sure, a shiny new cell phone is nice, but in a few months when the latest model roles out, your gift becomes null and void. You know what never goes out of style? Memories. Whether you’re traveling with the love of your life or the whole family, vacations create countless memories that last a lifetime.

 

We Suggest the Gift of: Cruises

 

 

Today’s modern cruise ships prove that the journey can be just as fun as the destination. These vessels are more like floating mega-resorts that offer everything from carnival rides to water parks, world-class spas to fine dining. Remind your kids how fun you can be and race them down the water slides. Give date night an upgrade with an onboard candlelit dinner and Broadway show. The smiles and memories made on a cruise ship are truly endless. Best of all, you’ll get to visit multiple destinations and only have to unpack once.

New Experiences Form Better Bonds

 

 

There’s nothing quite like discovering a new destination. Savoring delicious international flavors, connecting with a local culture, and soaring through the trees on a zip-lining excursion are all life-changing moments that remind us that experiences are worth so much more than things. More importantly, instead of being absorbed in a new toy or laptop, you and your favorite travel companions will be 100% focused on each other and the moments you’re sharing.

 

We Suggest the Gift of: Mexico

 

 

With an exciting culture, in-depth history, and incomparable natural beauty, Mexico is the ideal destination for discovering together. Awaken your inner Indiana Jones and explore ancient Mayan ruins in Riviera Maya. Dive into the clear waters bordering Cancun to snorkel around vibrant coral reefs. Move your hips to the beats of live music found along Puerto Vallarta’s El Malecón. Mexico has an endless array of destinations to choose from for bonding over unique and exciting experiences.

Inspire a Love of Learning

 

 

Travel teaches us many things. In addition to learning about cultures, history, economics, politics, and geography in a totally fun, hands-on approach, you and your fellow travelers will find that your trip has made you more well-rounded, accepting, and thirsty for knowledge. It’s the kind of education that you won’t find inside the classroom.

 

We Suggest the Gift of: America

 

 

Let’s be honest. For a lot of us, no class put us to sleep faster than history. But it’s one thing to listen to monotone Mr. Stein drone on about the Revolutionary War verbatim from the textbook. It’s another – and frankly, more invigorating – experience to walk in the footsteps of our Founding Fathers along Boston’s Freedom Trail or to see the Liberty Bell and where the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia. Plus, our nation’s incredible cities are a melting pot of cultures. They all have their own unique vibes that teach us to appreciate the freedom that was fought for so long ago, along with everything that makes our country great.

Say Goodbye to Stress for Everyone Involved

 

 

Not only will the pressure of finding the perfect gift be lifted from your shoulders, your giftee gets to enjoy a worry-free vacation away from the weight of work, school, and life in general. Whether it’s lounging on the beach, strolling through a marketplace, or sailing along the coast, disconnecting from the real world is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and each other. While your recipient’s mind and body are thanking them, they’ll be thanking you.

 

We Suggest the Gift of: The Caribbean

 

 

Perhaps the most relaxing sight in the world is that of a white-sand beach with a horizon of turquoise water so clear it couldn’t possibly be real, but it is. Treat your loved ones to a stay at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean and they’ll be transported into a comatose state of R&R. Along with warm weather and beautiful scenery, you and your loved ones will be spoiled with unlimited gourmet cuisine, endless refreshing cocktails, and nonstop fun and entertainment all included with your stay. Don’t worry about overindulging – it’s encouraged.
