Earthy Capricorns love everything that’s elegant and stylish. Hence, upscale destinations boasting luxury and comforts galore are the exact kind of places you’ll most likely find these December or January-born individuals. They are practical, business-minded, and often-work-crazed creatures (with a typical caution of the mountain goat) who are not only extremely conscious of their social image and status, but often don’t do well with spontaneous backpack trips or unannounced on-the-go mini-vacations. Things need to be planned to the tee, not overly wild and adventurous—and absolutely no cheap gimmicks can be involved!
What’s more is that Cappies have an inclination towards the classical-- so don’t expect some wild and adventurous times, but do look forward to a quiet, cozy, and comfortable trip. Considering these characteristics, there are more than a few spots around the world that can appeal to these stern, grounded, and overly cautious travelers who, more often than not, avoid vulnerable situations and love exploring neat historical sites or stunning natural landscapes. Here are the best places around the world for Capricorns to travel to.
Where A Capricorn Should Plan To Travel
1. St. Petersburg, Russia
It’s the former capital of Russia and the second largest city in the entire country—not to mention one of the greatest places for sightseeing, with exquisite and opulent palaces dotted all throughout, as well as a truly grand atmosphere so full of class and elegance that Capricorns all over the world will be flocking towards this jewel of the Romanov empire. Art aficionados will no doubt adore the numerous ballets, operas, and concerts in this hub of rich Russian culture, while mighty explorers will have a fine time cruising on one of those canal boat tours of the beautiful city. There’s something for everyone, especially for individuals bearing the tenth astrological sign of the zodiac.
2. Milwaukee, Wisconsin
As a Capricorn you tend to be calm, disciplined, and more than reserved — all traits making you perfect for this lovely Wisconsin city on the shores of Lake Michigan. Along with boasting a major beer and baseball scene, the city is chock full of historical and cultural attractions, making it the ultimate place for weekends of fun exploration. Check out the newly expanded Milwaukee Art Museum or the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society, which hosts an annual show featuring the same flora and fauna seen in Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. There’s also the grand Pabst Mansion, former home of one of the city's famous beer barons, as well as the Milwaukee Public Museum, to catch a glimpse of what life was like in Old Milwaukee. Take kiddies along to the Milwaukee County Zoo or the Betty Brinn Children's Museum.
Plus, Capricorns are known for being optimistic opportunists — which, in the end, will help you do well in Milwaukee winters, as well as with any one of the city’s six Fortune 500 company headquarters.
3. Tokyo, Japan
It’s long known to have both a reputation of being a dynamic and fascinating metropolis filled with hi-tech modern flair, as well as an ancient capital city that’s rich in Japanese culture. From an urban jungle of shimmering and sky-hugging skyscrapers to the beautiful cherry blossoms at the Imperial Palace, Tokyo offers an infinite variety of places for travelers to explore, especially those luxury loving Capricorns who will sure find a whole lot to indulge themselves in. Snag a sushi breakfast to enjoy while riding on a boat along the Sumida River, or grab some of the latest and greatest electronic gadgets-- or even an exquisite ethnic Kimono. This is the place for Caps to go!
4. Los Angeles, California
Cappies want to be in the heart of it all – the center of it all – or, in other words, as downtown as possible. Los Angeles, my friends, is the place for you. Though the city’s synonymous with traffic, sprawl, and plastic surgeries gone horribly wrong, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that there is something intensely real about this Southern Californian hotspot. The density of downtown, with its superlative public transit system, plus galleries and designers galore, make DTLA the idea stomping ground for bold, driven, and always passionate Capricorns to explore.
5. Quebec Province, Canada
As the only Canadian province with a French speaking majority, this vibrant and inviting province is an apt destination for conservative Capricorn travelers hoping to breathe in cultural sites such as Quebec City’s Winter Festival, Montreal’s grand classic architecture, and of course, those deliciously yummy bites of maple syrup and poutine – a.k.a. French fries with cheese curds and gravy.
It’s a pocket of continental Europe conveniently located in Eastern Canada, and was dubbed in 1985, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its 400-year-old stone buildings and sweeping views of the age-old St. Lawrence River. It may be a town that revolves around its rich history, but rest assured, it’s also home to trendy shopping, endless nightlife, and plenty of high-tech innovation that’ll for sure appeal to stylish and choosy Capricorn individuals. No trip would be complete without a taste of historic and modern flair. This hotspot certainly has both.
6. Washington, D.C.
Sometimes, Capricorns can be inhibited and distrusting of others, which often makes traveling to unknown territories all the bit more frightening and stress-inducing. Steer clear of buzzy bikini spots and jam-packed foreign territories by taking a quick and easy trip that’s close to home. A suitable travel spot for any Capricorn would likely be major domestically-located cities like Washington, D.C., Chicago, Illinois, or even Portland, Oregon, where Caps can feel safe, secure, and go about freely exploring on their own terms.
7. Istanbul, Turkey
A gateway between Asia and Europe, this one is a melting pot of various cultures. It’s the most populous city in Europe, as well as the financial nerve center of Turkey. Plus, it’s also so full of jaw-droppingly fantastic history, culture, and beauty that it makes for a must-visit destination for anyone, especially Caps with a penchant for appreciating class and sophistication.
Sights like the Topkapı Palace, the Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), the Hagia Sophia, or the Basilica Cistern will for sure astound travelers of all sorts with their utter elegance and scale. Make sure to drop into a hamam or a Turkish bath/sauna as well. It’ll help you worker bees of the Zodiac fully relax, unfold, and unwind. Irresistible indeed.
8. Crook County, Wyoming
Capricorns are organized. They're also deep thinkers who need control-- the signature Earth sign who loves stability, security and safety. Go someplace where rocks have richness and where bluffs or monoliths loom over more than one thousand feet above Wyoming’s eastern plains. Why not visit Devils Tower, a one-of-kind-natural wonder that was designated by Theodore Roosevelt as our nation's First National Monument in 1906? It’s a historically sacred geological haven (any mountain climber's dream!) with flat-topped volcanic formations and a truly otherworldly presence—it even had a starring role in Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind! Check it out Capricorns.
9. Crook County, Wyoming
A tour of Egyptian antiquities or learning about past European royalty would mostly certainly appeal to strong-minded Capricorns who often are drawn to the past and fond of history. Modern-day Luxor is no doubt one of the best places to visit in Egypt, offering everything from the ancient temples of Karnak and Luxor to the ancient royal tombs of the Valley of the Kings and Queens.
There’s also a whole array of spectacular desert and river scenery to take in, especially while riding on one of those illuminating hot-air balloon rides. Trust us, it’s so much better than even the Las Vegas version—just like marshmallow fluff is to fois gras.
10. Prague, Czech Republic
Nicknamed the “City of a Hundred Spires,” this Czech Republic hotspot is equal to Paris in terms of beauty, has a history that goes back a millennium, and produces some of the world’s finest beers. It’s one of Europe’s best-preserved cities, with endless mazes of cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards in and around town that make it a glorious paradise for travelers looking to explore just a little further and a whole lot deeper.
There’s Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colorful baroque buildings and a romantic riverside location enhanced by graceful bridges, fairytale castles, as well as an awesome skyline. These days, you’ll also find memorable classical music venues and extravagant food taverns filled with a bohemian sort of allure that makes it a perfect destination for beach-weary vacationers wanting to immerse themselves in rich culture. It’s easy to see why Prague charms everyone who visits, especially Capricorns.
