Figuring out what to write on your travel blog can be tough, especially when you’re not traveling 24/7.
Coming up with an idea for a post that’ll resonate with your audience takes time and effort, and it’s certainly not something you want to be doing on the spot. One of my best tips for never running out of blog content is to create one massive list of travel blog post ideas that you can constantly pull from.
I myself have my own list of ideas, which I’ve divided into categories such as “Destinations,” “NYC Content,” “Travel Tips,” and “Around The World Travel”—the main content categories my travel blog focuses on.
Every time I think of new travel blog ideas, I jot them down on this list. I keep the list in my “Blog” folder in Google Drive, and I bookmark on my Chrome browser so that it’s always accessible.
To help you get started with your own list, here are 55 unique post ideas that your audience will love to read.

Travel Blog Ideas Your Audience Will Love
I hope the following topics inspire you to fuel your travel site with tons of new and exciting blog posts. If you’re posting once or twice a week, there are enough ideas on this list to keep you busy for months. Happy writing!
Informative Destination Posts
Destination-focused posts are always my go-to after a trip. There are so many unique blog posts you can write about a single destination. Let’s use Lisbon as an example:

- Where To Stay In Lisbon
- What To Pack For A Trip To Lisbon
See an example: Top Things To Do In Lisbon, A Travel Guide
Possibly one of my favorite categories, “Travel Tips” is a universal topic that everyone is curious about. Whether your audience is planning a weekend getaway or a long trip abroad, blogs like “packing guides” and “how to book the perfect Airbnb” can always come in handy.
- What To Pack For A Quick Weekend Getaway

Seasonal travel blogs can be similar to destination posts, except tailored to a particular season. I personally love reading them because they inspire me to visit different places around the world during different seasons.
- Best Fall/Winter/Summer/Spring Destinations Around The World
- Top Places To See Fall Foliage
- Where To See Cherry Blossoms In Bloom
- Epic Winter Destinations To Add To Your Bucket List
- Best Things To Do In [Destination] During Fall/Winter/Spring/Summer

Posts About Your Hometown
Even if you’re not traveling as often as you’d like to be, there are hundreds of blog post ideas waiting to be written about your hometown, especially if you live in a city that’s popular with tourists. Even if you don’t, blogs about local restaurants and attractions are bound to attract a local audience. Let’s say you live in Miami:
- 10 Unique Things To Do In Miami

Inspiring Bucket Lists
I get so much of my travel inspiration from Pinterest and other travel blogs. The best part about bucket list posts is that you don’t need to necessarily limit yourself to destinations you’ve visited. By doing some research, you can come up with unique bucket list ideas that’ll inspire both you and your readers. Bucket list posts can range from destination-specific articles to ones focused on overall experiences, such as:
- My Travel Bucket List
- 30 Travel Experiences To Have Before You’re 30
- Most Colorful Cities In The World
- The Foodie Bucket List: Amazing Dishes From Around The World
- Ultimate North America Bucket List
- Most Beautiful Hotels Around The World

- Epic Hikes To Add To Your Bucket List
- Epic U.S. Road Trip Ideas (or wherever you’re based)
