5 Trips to Take in the U.S. When Your Kids Have Left the Nest

Are your kids all grown up, in college or have their own families? If so, you have an empty nest! Now is the time to take advantage of this and travel to a location you would have never gone when the kids were at home.

Wondering where to go? If so, consider the destinations on this list. Chances are, you won’t be disappointed.

1. Miami, Florida

Traveling to Miami is the perfect trip to take without the kids. While taking small kids along is great, you can’t enjoy all the “adult” activities that Miami has to offer.

For example, without kids, you can relax and soak up some rays without being interrupted. Consider visiting the famous South Beach, which offers the perfect people-watching spot, and a wide array of cafes and other hot spots.

If you are looking for a more peaceful experience, consider traveling to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Beach. Here you can tour a historic lighthouse and then head to Little Havana for authentic Cuban food. If you are looking for the perfect accessories to take along, utilize the information provided by BeachRated. This will ensure you have everything you need for some fun-in-the-sun.

2. Austin, Texas

Believe it or not, there are quite a few fun and exciting things to do in Austin. Are you a history buff? If so, spend some time at the LBJ Presidential Library where you can listen to recorded phone calls made by the former President of the United States himself.

After a fun day at the library, head across town to shop at some trendy boutiques on South Congress Avenue. For a bit of nighttime fun, consider heading over to the Continental Club, which is one of the most famous live venues in Austin – and no worries about a bedtime, the fun lasts throughout the night!

3. New Orleans, Louisiana

Without the kids, you can truly explore all the history and unique features hidden in The Big Easy. Some activities to consider include a several-hour-long bike tour through the entire Ninth Ward or heading to the Garden District to capture amazing images of Victorian houses and old trees.

If you prefer the night life, then there’s much more to New Orleans than just the infamous Bourbon Street. Consider heading over to Frenchmen Street, where you will find live music everywhere.

4. Indianapolis, Indiana

Do you love vintage cars? If so, then the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum should be a must-see on your list when visiting this fast-paced city. If you want to participate in adrenaline spiking activities, then consider taking a spin on the track during your own Indy Racing Experience.

After all the G-Force experiences, you may need to be easy to your stomach. Consider trying out some of the delicious food found in the Holy Rosary neighborhood. You can end the day walking around the Indianapolis Canal Walk and experience the canal first-hand in your private gondola ride.

5. Phoenix, Arizona

Something you may not have known about Phoenix is that it’s a golf mecca. Here you will find dozens of different courses including Troon North, which is a scenic desert course. For a bit of nighttime action, travel over to Scottsdale to take a tour of the famous architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright.

As you can see, there are more than a few exciting destinations to visit after your kids have left the nest. If you are trying to find fun things to do in the U.S. with your husband, wife or partner, consider some of the destinations on the list here.
