Aries need to be in the middle of the action. Because you're not afraid to step outside of your comfort zone, the best place for you to be is in a bustling and vibrant city. A quiet trip to the countryside or staycation won't have the fast-paced adventure you need to feel fulfilled. When it comes to travel, Aries are looking for good food, extraordinary views, and glittering nightlife to keep you entertained. Take a trip to Tokyo, Japan for an unforgettable experience. This city is known for its delicious cuisine, walkable neighborhoods, and rich cultural experiences. There's plenty to keep you busy during your time in Tokyo.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)


You're a lover of the finer things in life, Taurus. Good food and good company are at the top of your travel list. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, so roughing it on vacation just isn't your thing. You prefer the comfort of silken hotel sheets and all-inclusive accommodations. That's why Milan, Italy is ideal for you. It goes without saying that the food scene is simply to die for, and after sampling all of the pasta and wine available, you can treat yourself to some of the best luxury shopping in the world or take in some eye-catching art in the city's museums.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)


You tend to prioritize experiences over material things, Gemini. It's not enough to just have breathtaking views, you need mental stimulation as well. A vacation for Gemini is an opportunity to have exciting new experiences and gain a new perspective on life. Consider a trip to historically rich Bavaria, Germany. Your curious mind won't be able to get enough of the landmarks, picturesque medieval towns, and breathtaking views of the Bavarian Alps. And if the countryside isn't your thing you're just a cog railway ride away from the capital city Munich, where nightlife and delicious food await.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)


You're looking for a vacation that feels like a home away from home, Cancer. Relaxation is the most important thing for you when traveling, so you want to stay somewhere that takes care of the small details for you and allows you to unwind. And as a water sign, it's important that the ocean is nearby for you to soak up some sun. If you're looking for something all-inclusive with a beachfront view, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is the place to be. The white-sand beaches and turquoise waters are sure to send you into a state of relaxation. Known for its luxury resorts and tropical views, you'll enjoy postcard-worthy experiences for the duration of your trip. You won't want to leave this island paradise.

Award-winning restaurants, eclectic shopping districts, and live music will keep you entertained for the duration of your getaway. Barcelona has the best of both worlds: cosmopolitan city living and relaxing oceanfront views. Not to mention, the stunning Spanish architecture will make the perfect backdrop for your vacation photos. Between the local festivals, guided tours, and all-night dance clubs, there's enough in this town to keep you busy for weeks.

Set against the gorgeous views of Table Mountain, there's a little bit of everything to do in this metropolis. Looking to see some local wildlife? There's no better way to experience the wonders of nature than with an overnight stay at one of many nearby wildlife and nature reserves. You won't find a better way to spend your next solo trip.

Aesthetics and a thriving social scene are your top priority, Libra. You're a social butterfly who enjoys finding the hidden gems of the world and learning more about yourself through travel. And, as the sign of balance, you need a mix of relaxing and mingling on your travels. That's why Mykonos, Greece should top your list of travel destinations.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)


As the adventurer of the zodiac, it takes a lot to impress you, Sagittarius. You don't vacation, so much as you do travel. Sagittarius has a strong desire for thrilling excursions and mental stimulation. Sticking close to home or revisiting a city you've been to simply won't do. Sagittarius needs freedom and the ability to easily jump from activity to activity in order to be truly satisfied. A trip to Reykjavik, Iceland will offer that once-in-a-lifetime experience. To start, you'll want to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. From there, you can spend an afternoon (or two) exploring Iceland's many active volcano sights and breathtaking geysers. There's no shortage of natural wonders to explore here.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)


For Capricorn, vacation is more than a change of place, it's a chance to leave the worries of work behind. This sign is known for a love of tradition and structure, so you prefer a cozy and comfortable trip over something exotic. A trip to historic Geneva, Switzerland, nestled among breathtaking mountain views and historical sights, is sure to please. Geneva is a center for culture and historical destinations, including a variety of local theaters, museums, and opera houses. And if you're looking to get away from city life for a bit, you're just a cableway ride away from stunning views of Lake Geneva, the Alpine peaks, and some of the largest vineyards in Western Europe. You'll be left in awe by the area's cultural attractions.

If you're feeling up to the challenge, a guided tour along the Inca Trail hike offers breathtaking views of the ruins of Machu Picchu. This is one adventure you can't miss!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)


You're a dreamer Pisces, and you want to be as far away from reality as possible when vacationing. As a water sign, Pisces is the happiest with a tropical getaway.
