Modern-day Edinburgh has a youthful vibe—it has some of the best nightlife in Scotland, as well as the University of Edinburgh, which has one of the largest student bodies in the country. But the city isn’t too far removed from its long and storied past. Old Town is filled with reminders of yesteryear, including cobblestone streets, narrow alleyways dating back to medieval times, and ornate churches. Edinburgh Castle is worth a visit; the 17th-century fortress houses the National War Museum and the Scottish Crown Jewels.
Spend the last day of the vacation in Dublin, a picturesque city sandwiched between the gray-blue waters of the Irish Sea and the emerald-green countryside. It’s home to the oldest university in Ireland, Trinity College, where you can stroll between historic buildings and see the ninth-century Book of Kells on display in the school’s library. There’s also a lively bar scene here—the city has more than 1,000 pubs where you can enjoy pints of a locally brewed Guinness.
