Although it鈥檚 wonderful to celebrate friends鈥 weddings and to chip in for their honeymoon funds, it can feel like a bit of a bummer if you鈥檙e single or flipping through an empty calendar while they post their incredible pics. Instead of letting your nagging social media envy make you feel guilty for being a bad friend, seize the moment to do something awesome: Plan a buddymoon, a new travel trend we totally love! All you need is an adventure-loving bestie and a cool spot to start creating the ultimate travel itinerary. Since some places seem to be better suited for romantic pairs, we put together a quick list of five destinations that are great for a dynamic best friend duo. Cap off your summer by celebrating a relationship you cherish. You both deserve it.

1. the great outdoors: Manchester, Vermont

Not feeling an outrageous resort this summer, or just can鈥檛 spring for anything too lavish? We love Manchester, Vermont, an underrated spot near the New York state border with cute cottages for you and your best friend. It鈥檚 located in the heart of the state鈥檚 well-known Green Mountains, so you鈥檒l be able to get a solid nature fix that leaves you feeling refreshed. You and your BFF will love swimming in waterfalls, tubing down the Battenkill River, or taking outdoor yoga lessons. You can even try off-roading or fly fishing, if you鈥檙e up for it! Be sure to keep your camera (or phone) charged, so you can score some killer pics. When it comes to local souvenirs, scoop up Green Mountain coffee beans and local maple goodies like syrup and honey. They鈥檒l be a sweet reminder of time spent with one of your favorite people once you鈥檙e back home.

2. A Hip, urban聽adventure: Brooklyn, New York

Travel with your adventure-loving bestie to explore a bustling metro that people love for international cuisine and diverse culture outside of Manhattan: Brooklyn, New York. One of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in Brooklyn, the eclectic and affordable Bed-Stuy central neighborhood is home to historic brownstones, artsy facades, and locally owned businesses while just a stone鈥檚 throw from trendy Williamsburg. While staying in Brooklyn, plan to ride bicycles along New York鈥檚 Ocean Parkway, enjoy a beer at Ruby鈥檚 Bar & Grill, and then go see famous landmarks like the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Bridge. Coney Island鈥榮 nearly three-mile-long boardwalk is ideal for sneaking in some steps and offers tons of Insta-worthy photo ops, including famous #foodporn eats like Nathan鈥檚 hot dogs and Totonno鈥檚 Pizza. Yum.

4. The Ultimate Fitness vacay: St. Lucia

Fitness vacations have been popular for years, and they鈥檙e especially awesome for a pair of besties who love sweating it out at SoulCycle or crushing a weekend Barry鈥檚 Bootcamp class.

5. a Quintessential Caribbean Experience: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Have you dreamed of experiencing Cabo since you first saw it on MTV Spring Break back in the early 2000s? It鈥檚 never too late to experience the beachy bliss for yourself! Score insane deals online or book an all-inclusive resort experience to add a little bit of luxury to your trip. While in Cabo, you and your best gal pal can listen to a DJ spin tunes poolside, soak up the sun on Bali beds or experience the insanely awesome landscape of Mexico鈥檚 southern Baja California peninsula with a trip to the beach. Book activities like parasailing and snorkeling to experience the waves, and see the stunning desert mountains from the water. Once you鈥檝e worked up some hunger, treat yourselves to delicious dishes and drinks, which include standard Mexican fare, seafood, salads, steaks, and seasonal cocktails. We think it鈥檚 safe to say that Cabo is *so* much more fun after college.
