These Cities Have Been Voted The Top Destinations Of 2017

2017, what’s good? Turns out A LOT of familiar faces!

U.S. News has released their annual World’s Best Places To Visit list and these ultimate destinations are basically your 2018 bucket list. Oh, and we’re not trying to brag or anything but we kind of go to all of them (except #10, so sorry but we see you!).

Rome

Enchanting Rome took out the top spot thanks to it’s rich history, iconic monuments (looking at you Colosseum!) and delicious food.

London

What’s not to love about London? It’s an entire universe with varying neighbourhoods and enough modern and old monuments to keep your feed fully stocked.

Paris

It’s the quaint side of Paris that scored it the 5th spot. It’s tiny cafés, local markets and unique shopping districts are loved by tourists as much as the Eiffel Tower!

Florence

Impressive art at every turn and food so good you’ll never want to leave. Yep, it’s little wonder the Tuscan capital scored so high. In fact, here’s why we’ll always love it

Prague

There’s SO much to see in Prague and it’s all magical. “Old Town Square, St. Vitus Cathedral and the Prague Astronomical Clock will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy tale” reads the report, and we couldn’t agree more.

Barcelona

Besides a great football (i.e. soccer) team, Barcelona has the beach, an epic array of architecture and a lively vibe at all hours of the day… or night.

Dubai

Not just a stopover! Dubai is “filled with one-of-a-kind attractions” and more and more people are heading there to spend time exploring the desert, landmarks and of course, insanely huge shopping malls!
