    Everyone lives life differently in their twenties — so this is by no means a one-size-fits-all list — but during the decade-ish following your teenage years, it’s more likely than not you’ll be dealing with a (comparatively) limited cash flow, you may not necessarily prioritize family-friendly destinations, and you might be single and looking for a little...fun.
