It goes without saying that once you’re a part of a line you have a bond for LIFE. Whether it’s graduation, a wedding or even your first pregnancy, your line sisters are there to support you no matter what.

That support may not always come in a physical form; given that your Ace moved across the country to pursue her dreams or your Live-Five is a nonstop workaholic. But that’s why you all work hard to plan vacations for rekindling that sisterhood you know and love so deeply. A getaway from your everyday life grants you an opportunity to refresh with some of the closest people to you. The beautiful thing about your line is there’s no other group of people on this planet like you, so here are several unique getaways that may be the perfect fit for you and your girls.

There’s exotic scenery at every turn for all your impromptu photo shoots, so let’s just say that Bora Bora is THE spot to go with your line.

Go Cozy in Vermont
Tired of the tropical getaways? Try going to a remote, cold location this winter like Vermont. I’m sure you’re asking yourself, what the heck is in Vermont? Not much but ski lodges and good people, which is all you need! Why not grab the girls, pull out the matching snuggies and sip bottomless mugs of cocoa while binging on chick flicks. It sounds simple, but sometimes the simplest vacations can be the most memorable.

Anyone who’s ever been to California says it’s just one of those places you HAVE to visit, so why not visit it with the people who are closest to you?

Go Wild in New Orleans
Now if your line is looking for the turn up, definitely head to New Orleans for your next getaway. You will never get bored in a city that’s just as excited to party as you are. Aside from that, do I even need to mention how bomb the food is? If you have some foodies on your line this is definitely the spot to visit as there’s a new joint to try out on every street corner. Don’t forget to visit Bourbon Street while you’re out there!

Go Cheap in South Carolina

Okay so you and your line aren’t trying to do the most and spend ample money. I totally get it. Well South Carolina might be the perfect place for you to visit! This state is home to Charleston which is one of the emerging cities for young, black professionals.

Go Luxurious in Dubai

Now on the other hand, if you’ve got money to blow take a trip to Dubai. Can you say perfect Instagram backgrounds? This city screams money and is a true treasure to embrace. It’s a bit pricey, (and by that I mean pretty pricey), but the experience here is definitely unforgettable. You can also visit Ferrari World while you’re out there. Yes, they have a Ferrari World amusement park.

Go Sentimental in Your University’s city

Take it all back to where it began; where your chapter was founded and where your unforgettable bonds were made. Plan your next getaway back to the University where you crossed for the ultimate vacation down memory lane. Visiting your old dorms, Greek plots and sorority houses is ideal for any line’s vacation. There’s no better way to feel connected with your line sisters and chapter than to go back and visit where it all began.
