8 Famous Cities to Revisit in 2015
Cities are ever changing. The following eight cities, though mostly already known as tourist destinations, offer new wonders while maintaining their same old charm.
- Shikoku, Japan
Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s major islands, features 1200-year old pilgrimage trail that passes by 88 historic temples, with a newly-built Japan Rail pass making traveling to the island much easier. Don’t miss visiting the island’s famous bathhouses.
- Lower Manhattan, New York
Starting from Ground Zero, the entire Lower Manhattan has experienced a kind of rebirth. The area now has an even more vibrant community and various cultural developments – and at the center of it all is the 9/11 Memorial and the highly-anticipated One World Trade Center.
- Yellowstone National Park
The Yellowstone National Park needs no further promotion, but it still deserves one. The park recently finished a residence upgrade with the Canyon Lodge and Cabins, which features over 500 rooms and has an estimated cost of about $70 million.
- San José del Cabo, Mexico
San José del Cabo isn’t as popular as its sister city, Cabo San Lucas, which may in fact be its draw. The city is full of history and is currently drawing in a lot of investors to the hotel and dining business.
- Faroe Islands
Come for the scenery and stay for the cuisine. Faroe Islands is the center of Nordic culinary arts, among other avant-garde cuisine. Top restaurants follow the philosophy of cooking purely from locally-grown ingredients, which should make the trip palatably exciting.
- Rome, Italy
The city with the richest history in the West has given facelifts to many of its ancient sites. Among the upgraded sites are those featuring Emperor Augustus, the Palatine Museum, and the Villa of Livia. Other sites have also been reopened to the public.
A must-visit for any serious world traveler, our country is ranking even higher in tourist destination lists, thanks to it losing reputation as a deadly serious city while gaining popularity as a major party place in Asia.
- Orlando, Florida
Orlando isn’t just Disneyland – it’s much, much more. The city also boasts the state-of-the-art Phillips Performing Arts Center, the East end Market, and the SunRail commuter train. Its culinary scene is also very much up and thriving.
