6 Great Places for a Vacation in 2016

Thursday, February 04, 2016

Is the ground itching beneath your feet? Are you ready to get away from your cubicle and explore beaches and cliffs in exotic, far-flung locations? Here are just six destinations you won't want to miss this year.


1. Memphis, Tennessee

Though it's best known for its barbeque, there are plenty of things to do in Memphis that have nothing to do with food. For example, Graceland was the home of Elvis Presley, and Memphis in May is an annual festival that includes everything from carnival games to open-air concerts.


2. Chiloe, Chile

With colorful houses dotting the shoreline under a piercingly blue sky, Chiloe is the perfect place to get away from the demands of modern life. It's a beach fantasy filled with sun, sand and surf, and best of all, it's also one of the most affordable travel destinations in Chile.


3. Los Angeles County, California

You've heard of LA, of course, but visiting Los Angeles County will offer even more excitement. Not only will you enjoy the wealth of Beverly Hills and the galleries and piers of Santa Monica, but you'll also have the chance to visit places like Sante Fe Springs, home to space camps and aerospace titanium suppliers.


4. Liège, Belgium

If you like art, Liège is the place to be. Not only does it boast a number of galleries, museums and theaters, but it also hosts annual art shows and city-wide festivals where everyone comes together in a celebration of culture. The only thing better than appreciating art is appreciating it with other like-minded enthusiasts.


5. Mie Prefecture, Japan

Every prefecture in Japan has its tourist attractions, but what makes Mie so great is that it doesn't sell itself to visitors at all. It simply exists as a nice and friendly slice of Japanese culture, and people love going there for an authentic cultural experience in the Land of the Rising Sun.


6. Sydney, Australia

Most people think of kangaroos and barren deserts when they think of Australia. The truth, however, is that Sydney is a thriving city filled with lights and skyscrapers, and there are so many shops, restaurants, cafes, museums and parks that you won't even have time for them all in a single trip.


If you're eager to get away in 2016, these are just six places worth your time. Happy travels!
