When it comes to picking your desired destination, have you considered consulting your sun sign? Check out your’s below to see what US destination best fits your zodiac sign!
Aries – Las Vegas, NV
Aries is a lot like Las Vegas; over the top, flashy and completely captivating. Aries was born to run wild through Sin City. This active fire sign likes to be doing something at all times. Making this “adult playground” their ultimate destination, they want to see the sights, party at the pools and don their favorite vacation looks. Aries would be enthralled in all the activities that Vegas has to offer. From gambling, to the thrill rides on top of the Stratosphere, to flashy shows like Cirque du Soleil; Aries won’t have a dull moment in this city. They’re also probably one of the only signs that can keep up with Vegas.
Taurus – Atlanta, GA
Laid-back and charming Taurus would fall in love with wholesome and friendly Atlanta, GA. This grounded earth sign will be enveloped by the lush natural scenery of the city’s parks, like the BeltLine which is perfect for a leisurely bike ride. Taurus will definitely be looking to indulge in the cuisine, with a good mix of classic southern BBQ and American comfort food. All diets will be on pause for this trip. Their inner child would enjoy a trip to Six Flags or the Georgia Aquarium. Although they come off a little reserved, the party scene in ATL is sure to bring out their party animal persona. You can catch Taurus busting some moves at clubs across the city.
Gemini – New Orleans, LA
Whimsical, festive, full of life, art and music – these terms can be used to describe both the Gemini archetype and NOLA. This air sign will enjoy all that this river city has to offer. Historical tours, strolling through the charming French Quarters and buying art in Jackson Square to the sound of live jazz has Gemini written all over it. At night, you can probably find them running through Hurricanes on Bourbon Street after having a traditional Creole meal at one of the finest restaurants in town. Gemini will love the pure energy of New Orleans because it matches their own.
Cancer – Austin, TX
Cancers will eat up Austin. Literally, they’ll enjoy the fine southern cooking and BBQ. Quaint and quirky, just like the crabs themselves, Austin has Cancer vibes. As an empathic water sign, they’ll enjoy the live music scene with over 250 venues. The booming art initiative and fun murals around the city make for some dope photo opts backdrops. This city is super Instagrammable. Cancers might particularly enjoy a trip to the Barton Springs Pool, a man-made structure that receives its water from nearby springs. Austin also boasts a lot of shopping, from funky boutiques to antic shops, and Cancers will go crazy! It might be best to book a U-Haul, or be prepared to rent one for the ride home!
Leo – Los Angeles, CA
The Leo persona and LA vibe are one and the same. They both are often called superficial, but possess an alluring star quality. Leo will love the atmosphere in Venice Beach just as much as the nightlife in Downtown LA. Of course they’ll just have to splurge on something while shopping on Rodeo Drive. If that’s not in the budget, Santee Alley is a great alternative and a Leo’s paradise, plus LA has some great vintage spots for one of a kind pieces. Hitting up a swanky LA eatery that celebrities frequent will definitely be in the stars, don’t worry— Leo booked the reservation in advance. If anyone feels at home in Hollywood, it’s the lions. This sign is obsessed with entertainment, and they’ll get a kick out of touring the studios and seeing how the magic happens. Hiking up to the Hollywood sign, if only for the gram, will also be on the to-do list.
Virgo – Boston, MA
All Virgos are secretly nerds and will therefore love all the rich American history that Boston has to offer. Even those that aren’t that into history will enjoy the historic aura of Boston. Virgos might especially like to do a walking tour of the restored colonial homes along the cobblestone streets in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. You’ll probably catch Virgo at the infamous Quincy Market, buying all the little trinkets they find. Tastings at local breweries are totally this Earth sign’s vibe, and with a refined palate they’ll definitely get their fill on seafood and chowder. While they’re laid back, they also travel in style. You won’t catch Virgo chumming it at a cheap hotel, this is a vacation after all and they’ll want to stay at one of the best hotels in Boston. At first, Virgos will think the Duck Tours are obnoxious, but they’ll end up caving and participating in one anyway!
Libra – Phoenix, AZ
A change of scenery does a Libra good! That’s why this air sign would enjoy the subtropical climate and dessert backdrop of Phoenix, AZ. Sunny days, lounging by the pool of a swanky resort with a cocktail in hand is Libra’s idea of a vacation. Since this sign tends to work themselves up over making minor everyday decisions, the main activity of any vacation should be relaxation. This destination is known for its spas, and you best believe Libra will be booking a treatment or two! With a booming restaurant scene, Libra will certainly be fine dining, every night. This is the one time they get to live in leisure and luxury. They may be reluctant at first, but a hike through the natural terrain (yes, the dessert) will do a Libra good. A trip to Phoenix will restore their inner balance and harmony.
Scorpio – Chicago, IL
A water sign in the windy city? Yup! As one of the top “haunted cities in America” and a historic center of organized crime, Scorpios are here for the tours. They’ll enjoy learning about gangsters of the past and be enthralled by the ghost stories that the city holds. Their fun-loving side will indulge selfie’s by The Bean, tasting at local breweries, the performing arts scene and museums. This sign is not afraid of depths, so some classic Chicago-style deep dish pizza will definitely be on the to-do list! If Scorpio is feeling a bit out their element, they’ll find it quite relaxing to have a beach day. The city hosts a number of beaches along Lake Michigan, perfect for cooling off on a hot summer’s day.
Sagittarius – Miami, FL
Sagittarius is hot and spicy just like MIA! They’ll especially enjoy the Latin influence of this destination. Savoring delicious Cuban dishes and hitting up the salsa clubs in Brickell should definitely be on the itinerary. They’ll love the fun and youthful atmosphere of South Beach, with bright and sunny days by crystal blue waters and its vivacious nightlife scene. The archers should also take a whole day to explore Wynwood, a district with lots of funky art galleries and murals galore. Stay to the early hours of the morning because the night life here is real good time. Sag likes to switch up vibes, and Miami is the perfect place to do this. From thrilling beach activities like parasailing and jet skis to a wide range of city to explore, Sagittarius is sure to have a ball in Miami. Yes, they’ll definitely be up to catch a couple of those beautiful Miami sunrises, and no they didn’t get any sleep the night before.
Capricorn – New York, NY
Capricorn and New York kind of go hand and hand. They both have the aura of gritty determination, and the mystical sea-goat will come alive in the hustle and bustle of the big city. Always keeping it classy, Capricorn should make it a point to visit all the major art museums, fancy cocktail bars and gourmet restaurants. As an earth sign, Capricorn wants the best of the best, and they’ll find it in New York. Broadway plays or the New York ballet would also be of interest to this culture enthusiast. The city that never sleeps will provoke them to let loose on the nightlife scene. Even if they visit New York leisure, they’ll secretly enjoy watching all the business people rush to and from meetings. It’s a Capricorn thing, that other signs wouldn’t understand.
Aquarius – Seattle, WA
Stormy and moody just like Aquarius at times, the waterbearers will feel at home in the birthplace of grunge, Seattle, WA. First and foremost, they’re here for outdoor activities. This includes skiing and snowboarding while in season or hiking through the Evergreen State’s lush natural forests in the spring, summer or fall months. Being in nature just helps them zen out, and that’s really what they need while on vacation. Aquarians will also appreciate the futuristic backdrop of the Space Needle, along with the scenic views from the top. They secretly love a good adventure. They’ll also be inspired by Seattle’s thriving art and music scene. Last but not least we have to talk about the coffee. All Aquarians are kind of obsessed with coffee shops, and they’ll definitely make it their mission to find the best one in Seattle.
Pisces – Nashville, TN
Pisces goes on vacation for one thing, and one thing only: to have a good time! And they’ll certainly have one in the honky tonk city of Nashville. They’ll appreciate the live music all round, as the performers in Nashville bring a lot of soul to their performances, something a Pisces can resonate with. Some classic music city attractions that Pisces might particularly enjoy are the Johnny Cash Museum and the Grand Ole Opry. The action in this town happens on Broadway. All day and all night, bars are clamoring and live performers are belting their hearts out, and the fishes will really be feeling the party vibes. At times health conscious, Pisces will throw caution to the wind when it comes to Southern cooking and BBQ found in this city. This water sign is sure to leave a piece of their heart in Nashville.
