Top 10 Places To Go After You Graduate (PHOTOS)

Know the feeling? We've all been there at one point or another. It's the feeling you get when you've been dedicating yourself to something for a long time--longer than you've ever dedicated yourself to anything before, and now the end is quickly approaching. You can feel it in your bones. The indescribable rush of energy and pride that comes with being young and embarking upon a new adventure is upon you. Let's just come out and say it: You're graduating.

They call it commencement for a reason. It's the end of your college years, but the beginning of a different chapter of your life. You will be setting out into the world, into the workforce, and your school days are now to be relegated as flashes in your fond memory banks.

But stepping right out of school and into the workforce doesn't sound like the bag of fun we expect after all this trouble. Not by any means. We want to celebrate, take our first full-fledged steps out into freedom. So let's take off! Be it partying or adventure travel, vacation looms large on the horizon. And if you're just graduating, here a list of the top places to go after university.
