30 Places Everybody Should Have Visited Before They Hit 30

The advantage of youth is that you get to travel without the shackles of responsibility that come with your later years holding you back.

It’s easier to drink until dawn and live on $10 a day when you’re in your 20s than it is with a family to feed. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 30 places you simply have to visit before 30.

You might not get through them all but no matter how many of these places you do visit, you’ll certainly have a ball along the way.

Let us know how many you’ve been to in the comments below…

1. Ibiza – Spain

30. Las Vegas

No list would be complete with the greatest party city in the world (alongside Ibiza). 48 hours is probably enough as the city does tend to break people no matter what age you are.
