Once again, SYTA’s Teach & Travel Magazine has released their Top 5 Emerging Student Travel Destinations in 2023, and it’s a fabulous way to get inspired for the 2024 travel season! Whether you are looking for enriching history, performance opportunities, inspired STEM offerings, or all the above- these destinations hit the mark for student travel!

  1. Alabama: SYTA’s Annual Conference was held in Birmingham, AL in 2019, and our team got to experience first-hand the crucial history found in the Yellowhammer State. From Selma to Montgomery to Birmingham, Alabama offers students impactful and important lessons from the Civil Rights Movement. Down in Huntsville, they can also experience the interactive U.S. Space and Rocket Center.
  2. Branson: Known for its family-friendly entertainment, Branson is truly a great place to bring your student group. They have amazing performance opportunities, world-class shows, and the award-winning Silver Dollar City. Branson is a perfect destination to keep your students entertained and create lasting memories!
  3. Cleveland: Cleveland is an ideal destination for groups seeking STEM-inspired experiences. With incredible museums like the Great Lakes Science Center, The Museum of Natural History, and the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, there are so many attractions to experience! The most popular, perhaps, being the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame! Their onsite educational programs explore the “power and science behind rock music” – can you think of a better way to keep students engaged?!
  4. New Orleans: Rich culture, incredible history, and world-class jazz are just a few of the reasons to take your group to New Orleans! Your group can experience a cruise aboard the Steamboat Natchez, plan for countless performance opportunities, and immerse themselves in history at the National World War II Museum.
  5. Philadelphia: Philadelphia is home to “the most historic square mile in the country”. With Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and 66 other National Historical Landmarks, it hardly comes as a surprise! Your group will be immersed in history, culture, and fun with a wide range of interactive experiences like the Franklin Institute or Museum of Illusions.
