Happy New Year! The beginning of the year is the best time to plan for our next getaway. That's because planning something we look forward to always uplifts our spirit, especially during the cold, winter months when we're burrowed under heavy blankets. But the winter months also present the best time to travel when airfares are lower, the tourists and travelers are at home and are back to work/school and therefore, most destinations are free of crowds. You don't have to fight the crowds. Absolutely Elysian.
Our favorite guidebooks and travel magazines have a list of places to explore in 2018 to help our decision making. Here are some of the links to visit:
