Adaptable and versatile, you might not have a plan yet if you’re a Gemini – and that’s okay! Sometimes, last minute road trips are the most memorable and exciting of getaways.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22): National Park
Intuitive and imaginative Cancer, a getaway to a National Park would be ideal. Pitch a tent or hitch your camper/RV in one of the 130+ National Parks’ designated campgrounds across the US; explore the natural beauty of America as it exists today and the same way it existed hundreds of years ago.

Whatever floats your boat!

Libra (September 24 – October 23): Cruise
A bit of a hopeless romantic, easygoing and sociable, a cruise would be perfect fit for you, Libra. The possibilities are endless when it comes to destinations and excursions, chilling poolside or relaxing in the onboard spa; nightlife activity both aboard the ship and off, but the best part about cruising (in my humble opinion) is the food.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20): Key West, Fla.
Imaginative and intuitive, you can be a bit of an escapist and an idealist. Because of this, the vibrant life of Key West is the perfect destination for you.

The nightlife is unlike any other; especially in Mallory Square, where every evening at Sunset Street, performers gather to show off their skills to an abundant audience.
