Vacation Mode Is in High Gear: Visit These Locations From Drake Songs

Taylor Swift once said she was in her feelings more than Drake, but that doesn’t mean you need to head over to Marvin’s Room. Instead, maybe it’s time to book a little trip to Club Paradise and take a little break from the craziness of everyday life. So whether you know him as Jimmy Brooks or Champagne Papi, here are five locations to visit that are mentioned in Drake songs.

Virginia Beach Lyric: “She pretty but ghetto, pretty but rough, just like Virginia Beach”

Though this isn’t the most positive review of Virginia Beach, according to recent crime statistics, Virginia Beach is much safer than Drake makes it out to be, and there’s plenty to do, no matter when you go to visit. Spend time on the Atlantic Ocean and explore the Chesapeake Bay.

Must-Do Activity: Sunset Dolphin Kayak Tours

Head out on the Chesapeake Bay for this unique and unforgettable experience. A guide will take you and a small group out on the water to take in the stunning views and catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two while you’re out there. 

B.B. King Freestyle Lyric: “Money just keeps comin’ in, you would think I’m Irish the way that it stays doublin’”

Ireland is a stunning island in western Europe. With stunning rolling hills and beautiful beaches, you’ll be looking to book a flight after you see a few photos. Since Ireland is such a scenic place, you can even take a tour of different locations that have been featured in films.

Must-Do Activity: Blarney Castle

Blarney Castle is one of the most famous castles in the country and has been described previously as a “fairy scene.” Over 600 years old, Blarney Castle is just as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside. Don’t forget to explore the labyrinth of passageways below the castle, too.

Hype Lyric: “6 cold like Alaska, views already a classic,”

Whether you’re heading out to see the Mendenhall Glacier or you’re excited to ride the Alaska Railroad, there are plenty of amazing sights to see in the state. Before you head out on your great Alaskan adventure, be sure to bundle up, because Drake’s right, it’s probably going to be cold.

Must-Do Activity: Denali National Park and Preserve

If you’re heading to Alaska, you have to spend some time in the great outdoors. Denali National Park and Preserve is an absolutely stunning place to get out and reconnect with nature. Spend time hiking and looking over the glacial lakes and take in that cool air.

Can’t Have Everything Lyric: “We evolved, used to think vacation meant Niagara Falls”

Even if Drake doesn’t think of Niagara Falls as a vacation destination, it’s still truly a sight to behold. Located on the U.S.-Canadian border, Niagara Falls State Park offers beautiful views of this 80-mile waterfall.

Must-Do Activity: Observation Tower

Obviously, the main attraction at Niagara Falls is the falls itself. But if you want to get a great view of the rapids, spend some time on the observation tower, which will offer you an unobstructed view of the waterfall. The observation tower is also a great location to go birding and look for peregrine falcons.

Greece Lyric: “Come with me, fly you out to Greece, full speed, survoler Paris”

Ending on a two-for-one special, take a trip to Western Europe and visit France and Greece for the opportunity to take in stunning seas and amazing art. Try delicious food and relax by the Mediterranean Sea, plus spend time museum hopping and learning about art.

Must-Do Activity- Greece: Acropolis of Athens

As a UNESCO Heritage Site, the Acropolis of Athens is absolutely beautiful, and if you’re heading to Greece, you’ll want to head to the ruins of this ancient city to immerse yourself in a past world. Check out the Parthenon and the temple of Athena Nike, too.

Must-Do Activity – France: Palace of Versailles Estate and Gardens

Take in the breathtaking architecture and agricultural splendor of the Palace of Versailles when you head to France. Beginning as a hunting lodge, Versailles became the center of French politics in the 1600s and has since become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The enchanting gardens are a continuation of the opulence you find within the palace.
