Facebook groups are incredible forums for connecting with others in your local community or around the globe. Being in the travel niche especially I’ve found Facebook groups great places to ask locals questions, meet up with friends when I’m traveling solo, vent about travel mishaps, and generally have a good laugh.
I’ve met up with over 100 women from travel Facebook groups in countries such as Canada, the Netherlands, the U.A.E., the U.S., and more!
Here are the top active Facebook groups of every travel niche that you can check out and join:
