North America is home to three countries that will provide plenty of fun for you and your travelin’ group—the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Best Group Vacation Spots in US

As one of the most traveled-to countries in the world, the US is an ideal destination for group travel. Some of the best vacation spots in the US can be found on the East Coast. In northern New England, Maine’s rocky tidal pools line the coastline. Nearby Boston will always be rich with US history—it’s even better when you travel by train. New York remains one of the biggest vacation spots in the US. Though the Statue of Liberty is a main draw, there are endless activities and places for those of all ages to explore. Traveling south, the state of Virginia also offers a rich colonial history. When you reach the tip of the country, don’t stop; Florida is full of hidden hotspots for group travel.

The East Coast isn’t the only ideal travel destination—travel down south to experience kind locals and unique spots. In New Orleans, check out some stellar views and don’t forget to try the beignets. Travel to Arkansas for some southern charm: listen in on a live radio show or visit a gorgeous museum. Stop by Texas for a different kind of beach trip—you just might catch some baby sea turtles wandering back to the ocean. Or spend an educational day at New Mexico’s extinct volcano. No matter which city you and your pack choose, you’ll leave the south with smiling faces.

Out west, you will find some of the best vacation spots in the US. The Arizona desert is the perfect place to off-road in a Jeep with your whole group taking in views of red rock formations and cacti. In California, explore a hidden gem in the heart of Los Angeles, wander the wharf in San Francisco or stare up at the massive coastal redwoods. Relax in a small town in Oregon, sip huckleberry milkshakes in Idaho or take on Sin City with little ones. For some spectacular outdoor activities in Colorado, hike the Garden of the Gods, climb a mountain in Estes Park or adventure through the Botanic Gardens.

And we can’t forget our nation’s tropical destinations—Puerto Rico’s rainforests are endlessly fascinating and Maui is filled with whales and waterfalls that are sure to thrill anyone and everyone in your group.

Clearly, the US is filled with places to spend your time learning and exploring. Our travel blog is here to give you some ideas, but, really, every destination in the US has something to offer.

Group Travel in Canada

Canada is a huge country. HUGE. Places like Ontario offer a combination of gorgeous landscapes and urban settings. Niagara Falls is a wonderful vacation destination. Enjoy the falls themselves or visit the Niagara Botanical Gardens to experience the Butterfly Conservatory, which has more than 2,000 butterflies.

Also in Ontario is the sprawling hub of Toronto, which has a truly amazing skyline. As part of that, the CN Tower stands out at 1,800 feet. Traveling to the top of the tower, you will gain a spectacular view of the city. Other popular cities in Canada include Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton and Quebec.

Further west in Alberta, take your dino-lover (small or large!) to The Jurassic Forest, an educational 40-acre lot where you will see and even hear the massive creatures. Travel to nearby Edmonton to experience Galaxyland, the Edmonton Valley Zoo and the World Waterpark.

On the Go in Mexico

Experience one of two things in Mexico: rich culture or gorgeous beaches. In Mazatlan, take part in an exciting Dia de los Muertos celebration with colorful costumes, flavorful music and skeleton face paint. If Dia de los Muertos isn’t quite your style, other cultural sites and festivals in Mexico include World Heritage sites like Chichen Itza, the Natural History Museum in Mexico City or the prehistoric city of Teotihuacan.

Lounging on the beach can be just as much fun in Puerto Penasco, where you can visit tidal pools or adventure on banana boats. Or wander in Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Cozumel, Acapulco or Puerto Vallarta.

No matter where you travel in North America, you are bound to find something to interest and educate the whole group.
