Let’s hope 2021 is a better year for the world and travel. With light at the end of the tunnel, our editors have collectively rounded up five American destinations to visit this year.
Santa Fe, NM
New Mexico’s capital is known for its art galleries and ambrosial restaurants, which are housed in the town’s iconic Pueblo-style edifices. While there, make sure to visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum to look at the artist’s legacy and connection to American Modernism.
Park City, UT
Ensconced in Utah’s postcard-pretty Wasatch Mountains, Park City is a charming ski town that is great for every season. In addition to Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort — two spots that are perfect for winter sports and then hiking in the summer — the town hosts an assemblage of farm-to-table restaurants and trendy boutiques on its main street.
The Florida Keys:
A tropical archipelago at the southern tip of Florida, The Keys are famous for their crystal-clear waters and conch-style houses. Only accessible by seaplane or ferry, U.S. history-buffs should visit Dry Tortugas National Park.
Finger Lakes, NY
From world-class wineries to scenic hiking trails, New York’s Finger Lakes region has plenty to offer well-heeled travelers. The destination is dotted with charming small towns (Skaneateles and Ithaca are personal favorites), stunning scenery, and plenty of historical attractions, including the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
The Berkshires, MA
Whether you prefer exploring the outdoors or strolling through museums, The Berkshires is chock-full of iconic attractions. Don’t miss The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, The Berkshire Botanical Gardens, and Mount Greylock (the highest point in Massachusetts!). After a day well spent exploring, head into Lenox, Great Barrington, or Stockbridge for shopping, drinking, and dining.
