What was wrong with the destinations on last year's list? Go back a decade and you'll have 520 to pick from.

#1 -- New Orleans. Now, there's a novel idea.

#4 -- The Caribbean. Let's see --- then there's the Mediterranean, the Pacific, and 49 more.

Cincinnati, Baltimore, Saskatoon? The only difference between Saskatoon and Moose Jaw is Saskatoon is bigger. Branson Missouri? A well kept secret waiting for the intrepid adventurer.

Come on. This has to be the most inane list Ive ever seen. Thank goodness, they finally "released" this long-awaited list.

Bizarre list. Some destinations are really nice. Some make me scratch my head.

Here is the list from ten years ago. Due to budgetary cutbacks, the list has been shortened from 53 to 52.

The really nice destinations are already well known. Paris, Barcelona, Lisbon, Arizona, NYC, etc.

Branson is within 4 hours' drive from where I live now, but what it offers cannot justify the long drive, lol.
