Frommer's List: Best Places for 2024


Travel has been booming in the post-pandemic era, despite some continuing worries—and that's meant some super-crowded places and experiences, because so many travelers look for the most popular spots.

But the most popular is not always the best, and Frommer's, one of the best-known names in travel advice, has a list of great choices for travel, not all of them on everyone's bucket list—yet. Here's Frommer's list for next year...

  • Maui, Hawaii, where, despite the devastating wildfires of 2023, multitudes of scenic and cultural riches endure
  • Seville, Spain, a famously historic city now leading the way in sustainable travel
  • Kentucky, celebrating sports milestones, including the 150th anniversary of the Kentucky Derby, and expanding ways to experience Bourbon Country
  • Glendale, Arizona, where the world's first Mattel Adventure Park will give Barbie, Hot Wheels, and other beloved toy brands their own theme park
  • Canada's Prince Edward Island, throwing a 150th birthday party for author Lucy Maud Montgomery, whose indelible Anne of Green Gables put the island on the map
  • Guanajuato, Mexico, on track to become the country's next great tourism destination
  • the remote Cook Islands, newly accessible by flights to the South Pacific
  • Santa Fe, New Mexico, marking anniversaries, tours, museums, and other developments related to the city's considerable cultural and Indigenous heritage
  • tiny Utqiagvik, Alaska (formerly Barrow), the USA's northernmost town, where visitors get enriching insights into history, archaeology, and the Iñupiat way of life
  • plus Brisbane, Australia; Idaho's Craters of the Moon National Monument; Dresden and Chemnitz, Germany; Nepal; Panama City, Panama; and the Scottish Islands.
