Planning trips for yourself and maybe a friend or two can be a challenge. But just add half a dozen friends or more, and travel planning can feel downright chaotic!
Traveling with large groups of friends can be an awesome experience and result in hilarious photos and memories to last a lifetime. But if you want to keep everyone together as much as possible and safe and entertained throughout your journey, you’ll need to find some fun things to fill up your days. At FunSherpa, we can hook you up with lots of group-friendly events that are sure to keep your crew sticking to your itinerary.
These are a few of our favorite group travel activities in some of our favorite cities.
Oregon Zoo Experience – Portland, Oregon
For many of us, zoos bring back fond memories of childhood, but when’s the last time you visited one? On an Oregon Zoo Experience, you and your group can enjoy a leisurely stroll through a rich ecosystem of conservation and animal care while learning about the diverse creatures around the world. Spanning 64 acres, the zoo is arranged in five areas that feature animals from different continents and ecosystems. This is an affordable way to spend an afternoon in Portland and spark conversations about today’s important environmental issues.
Coke Museum Tour – Atlanta, Georgia
Whether you’re an avid soda drinker or have sworn off the stuff since becoming an adult, a Coke Museum Tour can be an enjoyable and nostalgic way to spend an afternoon with friends. Your group will learn about the fascinating history of this legendary brand through multimedia exhibits and get to sample Coke beverages sold around the world at the end of your tour. If you’re group is traveling to Atlanta, a trip to the Coke Museum can easily be combined with sightseeing around other top attractions downtown.
Ghost Tour – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
For a spookier type of group outing, consider booking your group for a Ghost Tour in Philadelphia. Listen to the stories of this historical and haunted city as you walk the streets of the city from Independence Park, the gardens of Society Hill, and the mysterious backstreets. These tours are offered year-around and typically last about 90 minutes.
The Foods of Eastern Market – Washington, DC
A trip to our nation’s capital wouldn’t be complete without sampling the diverse ethnic foods at Eastern Market. The market is easily accessible by public transportation and is the longest-running public market in the city. Take a tour of the Eastern Market to get the full experience and then venture out to the surrounding neighborhood to visit local shops and bars.
Seattle Pub Crawl – Seattle, Washington
Speaking of bars, why settle on just one watering hole for you and your friends when you can visit all the best ones a city has to offer? On a Seattle Pub Crawl, your crew can walk from local microbreweries to old city taverns to famous hot spots with an experienced guide who’ll fill you in on the best places to drink around town. The tour lasts about 2.5 hours, is offered year-around, and you only pay for the samples you want to try!
