13 best travel ideas for 2023
Oh, the joys of starting a new year: that post-holiday glow, a fresh start, and lots of resolutions. Our favorite, of course? Travel.
Making travel a priority not only gives us a chance to relax, toes in the sand (and island cocktail in hand). It also provides us the opportunity to truly explore, get up close and personal with new cultures and ourselves, and — to paraphrase Marcel Proust — discover new landscapes and step back into our world with fresh eyes.
Here's a shortlist of the 13 adventures (big and small) to check out in 2023. And with Outrigger's New Year, New Adventure offers lasting throughout 2023 (yes, really!), you get to keep your travel resolution — for less!
