The millennial. Maybe he’s currently wearing ironic suspenders while typing a text message on a typewriter. Perhaps she’s wearing a floppy hat, taking a picture of her brunch. However you feel about them, these Instagram-happy, eco-aware, darkly humorous explorers have something you can’t deny: They have excellent taste in travel.
Millennials aren’t just trend adopters, they’re trendsetters. This is why just about everyone is dying to know about millennial travel trends these days. Luckily, they’re happy to share the goods. Here at Expedia.ca, we asked 1,000 real Canadians where they’d recommend travellers visit in 2018, and then filtered by the millennial voice (ages 18-34). The respondents were more apt to international destinations, more introspective in their reasons, and more creative in their preferences—which makes us confident that these top places will soon become too popular for the average visitor. In no particular order, here are the top places millennials recommend you visit in 2018!
Golden, British Columbia
We had one respondent enthusiastically recommend “The Rockies” at large. Truth be told, there are so many fantastic towns illuminating the rugged peaks of the mountain range that it was hard to highlight just one. But if we had to narrow it down, we’re going with Golden, British Columbia. It’s crisp. It’s lovely. The name itself implies a golden winner.
Top Things to Do in Golden
- Pair that brisk air with a chilled brew. If we had to direct to you one brewery in town, make time for Whitetooth Brewery. They have options like the Speed Metal, with herbal hops and dark chocolate malts, or the Truth Dare Consequence, with juniper berries and smoked malt.
- Maybe after a few rounds at the pub you’ll finally be brave enough for the ultimate activity: skydiving. Steel your nerves and jump out of a plane with Skydive Extreme Yeti.
- They say that things can get weird in the woods, and we think that’s a good thing. Check out Motion Notion, which features camping, electronic music, yoga, and a trippy atmosphere that will leave you open to the universe.
