Grab a friend – or several – to explore these great group trip ideas from tubing to The Walking Dead!

Everything's better with a friend. That's why a lot of us travel in groups. Maybe you're visiting Georgia to attend a family reunion or a conference. Maybe you're here to catch up with old friends or to unplug on a girls getaway. Whatever the reason for your trip, make the most of it by making memories with the people you love.

Here are some suggestions of places and activities that are perfect for groups.
