Affordable airfare, the ease of online booking, and envy-worthy images being posted to social media every day has allowed just about anyone to become a self-proclaimed travel guru.

If you zip through airports like it’s your job and are the one that all of your friends go to for advice on where to visit next, you might just fall under this category. But if you really want to call yourself a travel expert, and offer your expertise to others, there are a few bucket-list trips in the U.S. that you need to experience first. Keep reading to learn a few such trips you need to take.

A Hike Into the Grand Canyon

Two of the 7 natural wonders of the world are visible in the U.S. One is the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights!), which is a phenomenon visible in locations like Canada, Finland, and Norway. But to see it in the U.S., you’ll need to make the trek to northern Alaska between late August and late April, and get lucky enough to enjoy a clear, dark night.

The second natural wonder you can spot in the U.S. is far easier to experience. The Grand Canyon is a unique and stunning natural landmark that stretches more than 1,900 square miles. While most of the millions of annual visitors to the Canyon never get further than a lookout, if you really want to experience this wonder in all of its glory, you need to hike down into the canyon. This is an adventure that isn’t for the unprepared and will take some planning and physical exertion. But you’ll be rewarded with some truly incredible views, as well as a better understanding of what it takes to hike in an unforgiving landscape.

An Alaskan Cruise

Another bucket list adventure that every travel guru should experience at least once in his or her lifetime is a cruise into the Alaskan wilderness. While any visit to Alaska can be a great adventure, an Alaska cruise is a great chance to get up close and personal with some of Alaska’s incredible landscapes, not to mention a chance to visit many different destinations in this massive state with ease.

By night, you’ll get the chance to relax, take in some entertainment, and dine in style. By day, you’ll enjoy incredible excursions in some of Alaska’s most famous ports. Hike a glacier, fish in a bubbling stream, spot brown bears, or take a tour and learn about the unique culture that has bloomed in the northernmost U.S. state.

A Week at Disney World

While it certainly isn’t exotic, a well-planned week at Walt Disney World is one of those trips that every travel guru should undergo at least once.

Dropping into the theme park for a day of fun isn’t tough; but if you want to experience everything that the world’s most popular theme park has to offer, you’ll need to essentially learn to master an entire language. From park reservations to fast passes to learning when to visit to avoid the crowds, planning a visit to Disney World takes some unique skills. If you want to be able to offer advice to friends and family members planning a visit to the Mouse, you’ll definitely want to try it yourself first.
