Travel & Leisure Names 50 Incredible Places To Travel In 2015

Travel+Leisure is out with a list of 50 incredible destinations world-wide – places that are “changing the travel map.”

Utah is represented on the list, or course. But surprise, for our national parks. It's the Wasatch Mountains and embedded ski resorts that make the list.

Below we give an except from the article and then a summary list.

“The world is getting smaller, but the chances of having an extraordinary new experience are only increasing. We’ve identified 50 standout destinations, based on industry news and trends, with input from contributing writers, A-List travel agents, and our new local experts. These are the places changing the travel map, whether it’s an emerging arts hub in Germany or a quiet stretch of sand in the Caribbean.”

Here are the first 20 destinations from the list. (No 1 is the introduction.)

2 - Fez, Morocco
3 - Catskills, NY
4 - Rotterdam, Netherlands
5 - Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

6 - Wasatch Mountains, Utah

The new year brings new restaurants, high-speed chairs, and lifts, including one that connects Canyons to PCMR, making it the largest ski resort in the U.S. And the industry is buzzing over a proposal that seems headed for approval called One Wasatch, which would link all seven ski areas in a European-style mega-network spanning 18,000 acres and 100 lifts. The project will have major tourism implications, introducing a new flock of riders to what locals proudly declare on their car license plates: the greatest snow on earth.”

10 - Prince Edward County, Canada
