“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

World’s Best Places

When I was looking for US destinations for my last piece, I found this list from Travel.usnews.com. They used expert opinions, reader votes and current trends – and evaluated sights, cultures, scenic beauty, food scenes and more. I’ve been to about a dozen of the thirty destinations they include (though not long enough in some of those). I think it’s a list to dream on as I start thinking seriously about post-pandemic travel.
