Bucket List Destinations in New England?
It’s good to live here.
Ocean, mountains, lakes, swimming skiing, boating, hiking. All just a drive away.
No wonder Fodor’s “25 Must See Bucket-List Places to Visit in the US” includes two New England destinations.
From the Golden Gate Bridge to the Grand Canyon, from Times Square to the Hollywood Sign, these are the iconic, bucket list, must-see places in the USA you have to see before you die.
“Consider this your USA bucket list, packed with all the iconic images ingrained in every American’s mind. We’ve included destinations, signs, and monuments that best represent what America is all about: Beacons of democracy in D.C. and Philadelphia, emblems of excess in New York City and Vegas, and the wonders of nature in our many stunning National Parks. They make up the cultural fabric of the country, and these classic destinations all deserve a spot on your list of must-see places in the United States.”
Sure, Disney World (No. 1) made the list. And who doesn’t want to wander around Bourbon Street (No. 2) half in the bag before they die?
But you’d be surprised where our local destinations landed on the list. Boston ain’t too shabby and the Maine coast delivers any time of the year.
Here are our spots on the list and where they rank on Fodor’s! Some we agree with. Some, eh, not so much.
