2020 sucked for 20-somethings. Millennials and Gen Z-ers put sports, socializing and study abroad plans on hold during what should be the most explorative time in their lives. To make up for the lost year, CheapTickets is giving one lucky 20-something the ultimate itinerary to look forward to: a free trip each year until they turn 30.

To help celebrate, we teamed up with avid traveler and actress Ashley Tisdale who shares travel advice and memories from her 20s while encouraging fans and followers to enter the contest. Here are her snapshots from favorite trips in her 20s, including vacations to Cabo—one of her all-time favorite destinations—plus Italy and Hawaii on her Instagram.

Ashley tells CheapTickets that her 20s were largely devoted to pursuing her career. She was busy shooting movies and TV shows (think High School Musical, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Hellcats) and touring for her albums. But when she had down time, her favorite destination was anywhere with a beach.

“My favorite travel spot in my 20s? Hands down the beach! I spent most of my 20s pursuing my career, shooting and touring for movies and my albums,” Tisdale recalls. “Whenever I had down time, I took trips to Cabo, Tulum, and of course, Hawaii. Some of my favorite memories from that time are relaxing by the pool, trying new foods, experiencing new cultures and getting even closer to my then boyfriend-turned-husband Chris!”

Her advice to 20-somethings planning their future trips and travels today is simple: Don’t take it for granted and don’t put it off.

“After experiencing a year without travel, I think people, especially those in their 20s, have a deeper appreciation for new experiences, growth and seeking out all that there is to do and see in the world,” she says. “I don’t think there’s anything that leads to growth as much as travel.”

If you’re between the ages of 20-29, enter the CheapTickets Travel in your 20s contest before the entry period closes on March 13, 2021. And for some vacation inspiration, visit our list of 12 iconic destinations to see before you turn 30.
