Birthday milestones use to be an extravagant event. Halls would be hired out along with catering and everyone would dress up for the occasion. Nowadays people prefer to spend money on other experiences that don’t cost so much money. And we’ve got you covered.
If you’re reading this, your 30th birthday is slowly approaching and you’re looking for unique ways to celebrate your special day. Luckily you’ve come to the right place. Take a look at our top four places to go for your 30th birthday celebration.
1. Cheese and Wine Tasting Farms
Pub crawling may have been fun when you turned 21 but now you want something more sophisticated and mature. The best way to celebrate the next phase of adulthood is to do cheese and wine tasting. There are myriads of farms that make all types of wines and cheeses to suit everyone’s palates.
Franschhoek wine farms are the popular choice for Capetonians or if you want to travel abroad why not visit a vineyard in France? Or simply take your pick of local cheese and wine restaurants in your area?
2. Go Camping in the Mountains
Camping is a fun and exciting experience especially when you have all your friends with you. Book a weekend in the mountains and make sure there are lots of activities to take part in. Hiking or skiing is a popular choice. Some camping sites also offer horseback rides and swimming pools.
Remember to take the proper gear with you when you go camping such as the following:
- Sleeping bag
- Cooking and eating utensils
- Hunting knife
- Portable SmartPhone charger
Additionally, if you’re going to be hiking without a guide, take a map and compass with you.
3. Visit Historical Monuments
Have you ever visited any of the historical landmarks in your town? Now is your opportunity to see what you’ve been missing out on. It can be a fun and educational way to get to know the area you’re living in. Examples of historical monuments are:
- Historical buildings
- Archaeological sites
- Cultural sites
Learning something new could be the best memory for your 30th, especially if you’re a history lover.
4. Go on a Safari
See how animals hunt, play and eat by going on an African safari ride. There are many nature reserves where you can see animals in their natural habitat such as the Kruger National Park, but you’ll find them all across the world. Typically, nature reserves offer affordable accommodation so you and your loved ones can stay in the wild for a weekend.
Visiting historical monuments is probably the cheapest option on our list. On the other hand, if you want to take part in something more adventurous then you’ll love going to wine or cheese farms, camping and safaris.
