NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than six decades, millions of people have depended on Frommer's Travel Guides to help them experience unforgettable vacations and adventures. As it does annually, Frommer's is proud to inspire travelers by revealing its eagerly anticipated list of the best places to travel in the coming year.
Some of the honorees, determined by a global team of award-winning editors and writers, are (in no particular order):
- The Big Island, Hawaii, where the volcanic eruption of 2018 created fabulous new features and reinvigorated outdoor adventures
- Plymouth, Massachusetts, and Plymouth, England, where the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's sailing will be commemorated with a cornucopia of events
- Indiana, where America's newest national park, Indiana Dunes, celebrates its first birthday while the state capital, Indianapolis, marks its 200th
- Peru's Ausangate Trek, a 4- to 7-day hike or horseback ride past the turquoise lakes and Rainbow Mountain of the Andes—an alternative to the overcrowded Inca Trail
- Extremadura, Spain, where Roman ruins, quiet forests, rare birds, and remnants of the tumultuous era of the conquistadors deserve wider celebration
- Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, land of Lamborghini, salumi, and tortellini but none of the overtourism afflicting other Italian areas
Plus 13 more inspirational destinations around the globe. The entire list, with rich photography, is available at Frommers.com at www.frommers.com/bestplaces2020.
This year, Frommer's is thrilled to announce the final spot on the list will be decided by America. Nominations for the readers' choice for Best Place to Go in 2020 will be accepted on Frommers.com from Dec. 10 through Jan. 10. Then the five best destinations will be put to a public vote. The winner will be officially crowned a week later.
