Are you an adventurous Aquarius? Perhaps you’re a jet-setting Gemini—or maybe even a voyaging Virgo.

Dates: March 21 – April 19
Common Traits: Courageous, Energetic, Confident
Type of Trip: Solo Adventure
Aries are known for their unquenchable thirst for adventure in their day-to-day lives, so expect the same when it comes to planning the perfect vacation. With an electric personality and zest for life, these people thrive when left to their own devices—especially during a solo adventure. Activities like waterskiing at Hobe Lake Ski Club or taking a kiteboarding lesson from the experts at New Wave Kiteboarding would be right up their alley. And who wouldn’t want to eat their way through Stuart on a Flavor Excursion food tour?
Dates: April 20 – May 20
Common Traits: Patient, Reliable, Warmhearted
Type of Trip: Luxurious Escape
With a taste for the finer things in life, Taurus is no stranger to luxury. They will spare no expense when it comes to travel. An oceanfront suite at Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa? You bet. Shopping for the perfect souvenir at one of Martin County’s chic boutiques in Sewall’s Point or Downtown Stuart? Definitely. Five-star meals at upscale eateries like District Table and Bar, the Gafford, and 11 Maple St. Restaurant? Without a doubt.
Dates: May 21 – June 20
Common Traits: Social, Adaptable, Intellectual
Type of Trip: Group Getaway
Known for being the social butterflies in any scenario, you can count on charismatic Gemini to plan an unforgettable escape for the whole crew. They understand that variety really is the spice of life and will try to squeeze as much fun into the itinerary as possible. A typical day for the group might include a beach sunrise, followed by a paddle tour with Zeke’s or Liquid Aloha, an afternoon picnic in Langford Park, a stop at the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, a quick round of golf, and dinner and drinks at one of Port Salerno’s lively restaurants.
Dates: June 21 – July 22
Common Traits: Intuitive, Sympathetic, Emotional
Type of Trip: Cultural Immersion
Cancers search for a sense of belonging and want to feel at home in their surroundings, so immersive and experiential trips tend to be particularly popular options. These folks might skip the more popular tourist attractions in search of making meaningful connections with the locals. You’ll be able to catch them partaking in a voluntourism activity or spending time at places like the Elliott Museum to develop a deeper understanding of the destination and its history.
Dates: July 23 – August 22
Common Traits: Creative, Enthusiastic, Generous
Type of Trip: Under-the-Radar Hideaway
Any Leo in your life is likely fiercely proud, loyal, and confident. They like to be seen as leaders and consider themselves trailblazers—so don’t be surprised if they seek out a destination’s hidden gems, going where few have gone before. For example, why just hit the beach when they could rent a kayak and paddle across to the St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park (and have the uncrowded shores all to themselves)? They’ll also want to check out the newest openings in town, whether it be catching a limited-run show at the Lyric Theatre or swinging by a brand-new restaurant to boast a bit on Instagram.
Dates: August 23 – September 22
Common Traits: Reliable, Analytical, Intelligent
Type of Trip: Reunion
With that brilliant, analytical mind, Virgos and travel planning go hand-in-hand. They may get teased for their detail-oriented approach, but this is what makes them so great at organizing that long-overdue reunion. Friends and family alike can count on Virgo to bring all the moving pieces together. Expect fun outings like a sunset sailing on the Schooner Lily, a day of play at the Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast, or even a farm-to-table dinner demonstration at Kai-Kai Farm in Indiantown.
Dates: September 23 – October 22
Common Traits: Loving, Charming, Idealistic
Type of Trip: Romantic Retreat
Ever the romantic, Libras are drawn to all things related to art and beauty. These smooth Casanovas are well-adept at planning an unforgettable romance retreat for their loved one. During the day, they’ll feel right at home exploring local galleries like the Martin Artisans Guild and the Fish House Art Center, or maybe even taking a private art lesson at a local studio (like Clay Habit in Jensen Beach). Prepare to be wined and dined in the evenings at eateries like Ristorante Claretta in Palm City.
Dates: October 23 – November 21
Common Traits: Passionate, Exciting, Determined
Type of Trip: Aquatic Adventure
With strong water sign qualities, you can bet that Scorpios will squeeze in plenty of beach time while visiting Martin County. But they’ll also seek out more adventurous aquatic activities…as long as the reviews are glowing. Whether it be a surf lesson with Ohana Surf Shop, an afternoon cruise with Sunshine Wildlife Tours, or renting a waverunner from Feet Wet Adventures, Scorpios are sure to make a splash wherever they go.
Dates: November 22 – December 21
Common Traits: Optimistic, Clever, Honest
Type of Trip: Bucket List Trip
Travel is in the DNA of any Sagittarius. With an ever-expanding bucket list, these globetrotters are always on the hunt for their next adventure and are known to have a bit of a wild streak. Nothing is off-limits for a Sagittarius and “go big or go home” is definitely the mentality. Hydro-foiling over the waves with Next Level Watersports? Absolutely. Embarking on a horseback riding tour through the wilds of Old Florida? Without a doubt. Joining a crystal bowl sound vibrational healing session at the Elliott? Sign them up.
Dates: December 22 – January 19
Common Traits: Prudent, Disciplined, Patient
Type of Trip: Historical Tour
Capricorns are known as the taskmasters of the Zodiac and like to feel in control of their destiny. They want to dive headfirst into destinations with a rich history, and also appreciate experiences that activate their intellect. They’ll enjoy hearing tales of yesteryear during a Stuart Segway Tour, by chatting with the historians at the House of Refuge (which is also the oldest building in Martin County), or by visiting attractions like the Road to Victory Military Museum and the Stuart Heritage Museum. In fact, the entire Martin County Historic Preservation Tour would be a perfect fit.
Dates: January 20 – February 18
Common Traits: Inventive, Independent, Original
Type of Trip: Off-the-Beaten-Path Getaway
Eclectic Aquarius is always looking to take the road less traveled. Curious and daring, these people don’t shy away from the weird or unusual and they love finding a new angle. So instead of staying on the beach, they might seek out a rustic escape at the historic Seminole Inn. While others visit Port Salerno for the incredible fishing and fresh seafood, they’ll opt to learn about the community during a Port Salerno Ghost Tour. If it’s off-the-beaten-path, you can count them in.
Dates: February 19 – March 20
Common Traits: Imaginative, Selfless, Impulsive
Type of Trip: Spontaneous Escape
Like a fish in the ocean, Pisces is always going with the flow. While this makes them easy travelers to please, it can also present some challenges for their more decisive companions. They’ll do best with loose itineraries and spontaneous experiences. Often called the environmentalist of the Zodiac, they also hold a deep appreciation for the earth. Try booking a last-minute eco-adventure, like learning about Martin County’s diverse ecosystem on a Stuart Paddle Tour or joining a ranger-led hike through Jonathan Dickinson State Park. And don’t forget to visit attractions like the Hobe Sound Nature Center and the Treasure Coast Wildlife Center.
