I'm not saying I'd love to live in NYC; I actually probably wouldn't. But for most people -- even for people from relatively big cities -- NYC is in a class all by itself. I just LOVE the energy of the city, the vibe, the whole ambience. I guess it's just so different from Salt Lake City that I feel as if I'm in another world -- but a world where people still speak English. There's so much to do in New York. At this point, I've seen all of the touristy places (with the exception of the Cloisters, if that counts as a touristy place), and many of them numerous times. I just love being there, and if more than about 5 years goes by between trips, I end up going into withdrawals!

For food, climate and beauty my pick would be long boat key FL. Beautiful Barrier island we stayed a month last year and has excellent food!

In England, the Lake District although the Yorkshire Dales are a close second.

In the USA, Cape Cod and the southern coast of Maine.

Lake District of Argentina...it was incredible. It would have been even better if I wasn't sick and didn't injure my foot.

really surprised no one has mentioned Israel. if you love history, well of course. if you are looking for magnificent nature- the Negev (maktesh ramon) and if you want beach, tel aviv and eilat. wineries, mountains, water, desert.

and a population that is reasonably fluent in English.

the rest area on I75 just south of Macon...I really, Really had to pee (I'm surprised something didn't break in there), and didn't want to have the GSP roll up while I was using a bush at the side of the road.

The recent trip we had around part of northern Italy would take some beating.

We were at Lake Garda at just the right time with a combination of good weather and low crowds.

Verona was lovely, and the current hometown of our daughter, Padua, is super. Venice is nearby and we've been lucky enough to be there again with good weather and small crowds. It really is another world!

We've had lovely times in California and I love places like the Hill Country and Big Bend NP in Texas.

I think where I live also deserves a special mention!
