Along with researching and narrowing down which destination you’d like to visit, be sure to also research more about the place you choose, especially if you’ll be traveling internationally. Find out local laws, customs, medical care, and visa requirements. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure there aren’t any travel warnings or travel alerts which could hinder your plans. Travel.State.Gov (U.S. Department of State – Bureau Of Consular Affairs) is a great resource for international travel information. Also make sure you bring contact information for the closest U.S. consulate or embassy. They’ll be able to help you in the event of an emergency 24/7.

Schedule Activities/Excursions
