1. Zakynthos Islands | Greece

Enjoy amazing walks on the beach with the most scenic locations on the Zakynthos islands.  Banana Beach and Shipwreck Beach are two of the more well-known stretches of beach in this coastal location.

Take a sailboat out or go surfing. Or, make a trekking-tour in the mountain-areas. With so much to offer, it's a must visit location for every world traveler! (Credit: Zakynthos Net)
Average Temperature:  79°F (26°C)


2. Great Barrier Reef | Australia

As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef holds a spot on every traveler's bucket list. Hugging the east coast of Queensland, Australia, the Great Barrier Reef extends from Cape York in the north all the way to Bundaberg in the south — a total of 1,250 miles. 

Wherever you decide to hang your hat, the Great Barrier Reef is a treasure trove of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. (Credit: Great Barrier Reef)

Average Temperature: 85°F (29°C)

3. Paris | France

The City of Light draws millions of visitors every year with its unforgettable ambiance. Of course, the divine cuisine and vast art collections deserve some of the credit as well. 

Containing world-class museums, fashion, cuisine, and an atmosphere all its own, Paris is also a city of "many splendors," as Ernest Hemingway recalled in his memoir, "A Moveable Feast." Visit the Centre Pompidou, enjoy gourmet pastries, shop couture on the Champs Élysées or hit the boutiques in Les Halles, take in the view atop the Eiffel Tower, or even plan a day trip to Versailles Palace.

Average Temperature: 20°C (68°F)

4. Bora Bora | French Polynesia

The small island of Bora Bora (just 6 miles long and more than 2 miles wide) overflows with beauty. Dormant volcanoes rise up at its center and fan out into lush jungle before spilling into an aquamarine lagoon. (Credit: Bora Bora)

Average Temperature: 80°F (28°C)

5. Florence | Italy

This little city, tucked amid the Tuscan hills, casts a long shadow through history. The wellspring of the Renaissance, Firenze (or Florence) sheltered the powerful Medici family and inspired artists like Michelangelo (David) and Brunelleschi (the Duomo).(Credit: Florence)

Average Temperature: 81°F (27°C)

6. Tokyo | Japan

"Animated" is perhaps the best word to describe Tokyo. Crazy about its anime, Japan's mega city is constantly buzzing with movement—feet clack down sidewalks, cars zoom along streets, subway trains hum below ground, ships cruise in and out. And yet bright lights and loud signs beg you to pause, to break your motion for just one second to pray (oops, we mean pay) at the altar of consumerism. This is a city that feeds on motion and progress.  (Credit: Tokyo)

Average Temperature: 26°C (79°F)

7. Cusco | Peru

Cusco, known as the archaeological capital of the Americas, is home to a storied history that included the rise and fall of the Inca Empire followed by the invasion of Spanish conquistadors in the early 1500s. Today, remnants of both eras share the narrow city streets – from centuries-old baroque cathedrals to exquisite stone masonry – creating a rare collision of Andean and Spanish styles that makes Cusco like no other place on earth.  (Credit: Cusco)

Average Temperature: 11°C (52°F)
Notable Locations: Machu Picchu | La Catedral | Sacsayhuamán

8. London | England

The English writer Samuel Johnson famously said, "You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." More than two centuries have passed since Johnson's era, but his words still ring true. Life in London is nothing short of invigorating, and travelers find that one visit isn't enough to experience everything this two-millennia-old city has to offer.  (Credit: London)

Average Temperature: 19°C (66°F)

9. Rome | Italy

Rome, the city of seven hills, enjoyed a mythic beginning. Romulus and Remus — twin brothers who were nursed by a she-wolf and fathered by a war god — reportedly founded the Eternal City. And although historians are a little skeptical about this epic entry into the world, most travelers are absolutely certain that there is something magical about Rome. Whether it's the mystery of nearby Vatican City or the ghosts of the Colosseum, an afternoon caffè on Piazza Navona or a piled-high plate of pasta at a trattoria, Roma is sure to enchant.  (Credit: Rome)

Average Temperature: 26°C (78°F)

10. New York City | New York

Cool, cosmopolitan, crowded, constantly evolving … the Big Apple blends big-city splendor with small-town charm. Amid Gotham's iconic landmarks and towering skyscrapers, you'll experience a vibrant culture permeating each of the city's distinctive neighborhoods and boroughs.  (Credit: New York City)

Average Temperature: 25°C (76°F)

11. Maui | Hawaii

Maui is not nearly as large as the Big Island, nor is it as small as Lanai, as bustling as Oahu or as quiet as Kauai. For many Hawaii vacationers, Maui is just right — offering a taste of just about everything the Aloha State has to offer, from impressive wildlife to intriguing history and culture. While on a visit here, you can shimmy alongside professional hula dancers, golf along coastal fairways, snorkel alongside five different types of sea turtles or simply lounge along some of Hawaii's most notable beaches.

Average Temperature: 70 °F (21 °C)

12. Cape Town | South Africa

Sporty, stylish, stunning, sociable… If Cape Town was a person, it would be that Hollywood starlet we all secretly envy. The Mother City is unlike any other destination in Africa: Separated from the rest of the continent by a ring of mountains, Cape Town stands as a glittering, metropolis juxtaposed with one of the world's most breathtaking natural landscapes. But good looks aren't the only thing Cape Town has going for it. You'll fall in love with this city's khaki-colored beaches, rolling vineyards, sizzling cuisine, thriving nightlife, and, of course, the spectacular Table Mountain. It may have taken an international soccer tournament to catch the world's attention, but since Cape Town took the global stage, no amount of buzzing vuvuzelas can drown out its magnificence.  (Credit: Cape Town)

Average Temperature: 23°C (73°F)
Notable Locations: Table Mountain | Constantia Valley | Camps Bay

13. Barcelona | Spain

Barcelona contains both the authentically historic and the wildly bizarre. From the tree-lined Las Ramblas to the narrow alleys of Barri Gòtic; from the beachside nightclubs to the city's dozens of sacred churches and cathedrals, this city by the sea seems to attract all types: the family, the adventurer, the couple, the backpacker, the culture lover — and more — with an almost overwhelming variety of things to do. You could stay for a few days, but chances are you'll need a whole week to explore.

Average Temperature: 24°C (74°F)

14. Sydney | Australia

Sydney is both a laid-back beachside town and a thriving metropolis that boasts some of the Southern Hemisphere's best surf, landmarks and activities. Whether you're looking to watch a show at the iconic Opera House, take to the waves at Bondi Beach or explore trendy areas like The Rocks and Darling Harbour, Sydney features something for everyone. Even Sydneysiders have an ideal mix of both worlds: Fashion-forward attire and British-style sarcasm combine with a "no worries" attitude and relaxed coastal vibe. It's no wonder this vibrant city down under is a natural choice for first-time Aussie visitors.  (Credit: Sydney)

Average Temperature: 23°C (73°F)

15. Rio de Janeiro | Brazil

Known as the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City), this glimmering Brazilian metropolis has certainly earned its title. Resting at the mouth of a bay harbor, the city is lined with white-sand beaches, lush rainforests and surrounded by staggered green mountains. Rio de Janeiro boasts dramatic views from nearly every angle. From the slopes of Corcovado Mountain, you'll admire the striking 125-foot-tall Christ the Redeemer, who overlooks Rio's pristine beaches. And from the shores of Copacabana and Ipanema, you'll admire the picture-perfect backdrop that has attracted Cariocas (native Brazilians born in Rio de Janeiro) and visitors alike for more than 500 years.  (Credit: Rio de Janeiro)

Average Temperature: 27°C (81°F)

16. Yellowstone | Wyoming

With dramatic peaks and pristine lakes, Yellowstone is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Multicolored pools swirl around hot springs; verdant forests weave past expansive meadows; and volatile geysers launch streams of steaming water toward the sky. With so much unspoiled natural beauty, it's no wonder everyone suspected John Colter (a scout for explorers Lewis and Clark) was embellishing when he first described Yellowstone's geothermal curiosities in 1807.  (Credit: Yellowstone)

Average Temperature: 12.7°F

17. Amsterdam | Netherlands

Don't believe everything you hear about Amsterdam. Yes, this Netherlands city takes a lax look at women beckoning business in the Red Light District and "coffee shops" selling an unorthodox type of herb to a toking clientele, but these descriptions only scratch the surface.  (Credit: Amsterdam)

Average Temperature: 17°C (63°F) 

18. Hong Kong | China

To outsiders, Hong Kong can raise a lot of questions: "Is it part of China or not?" "Is it one island or two?" "Do they speak English or Mandarin? Or both?" And foreigners have a good reason to ask them. This territory, made of multiple islands, returned to China's possession in 1997 after more than a hundred years of British occupation. Upon its reunification with China, Hong Kong added certain stipulations that provide a unique degree of autonomy.  (Credit: Hong Kong)

Average Temperature: 29°C (84°F)
Notable Locations: Star Ferry | Victoria Peak | Street Markets

19. Cairo | Egypt

The desert heat, the noisy streets and the sheer size of Cairo will leave even the most adaptable traveler with a serious case of culture shock. The constant bombardment of street vendors, the inescapable aroma of livestock and the seemingly chaotic way of life will joggle the senses. But be patient. Take some time to relax over a cup of tea, to wander the ancient streets and to watch the sun lower over the mighty Nile River. It won't take long for the city's treasures to reveal themselves.  (Credit: Cairo)

Average Temperature: 28°C (82°F)

20. Washington D.C. | District of Columbia

With its marbled monuments and high-profile politicos, Washington, D.C., has long been saddled with a reputation as a stuffy government-driven town. A "city of southern efficiency and northern charm," as John F. Kennedy once described it, Washington is often seen by outsiders as slow and inefficient. But these days, our nation's capital is awash with a new energy, transforming itself into an exciting, faster-paced East Coast vacation destination. (Credit: Washington D.C.)

Average Temperature: 27°C (80°F)

21. Grand Canyon | Arizona

"Grand" doesn't begin to do this canyon justice. Measuring approximately 277 miles in length, up to 18 miles in width and a mile deep, this massive chasm in northern Arizona is truly a natural wonder. For six million years, the Grand Canyon has expanded with the help of the mighty Colorado River, and for centuries, people from all over the globe have traveled to gaze out over its red and orange grandeur. (Credit: Grand Canyon)

Average Temperature: 24°C (75°F)

22. British Virgin Islands | Caribbean

The British Virgin Islands, or BVI for short, are some of the most exclusive and least developed islands of the Caribbean, but this only adds to their appeal. The resorts, villas, restaurants and other tourist attractions in this paradise are known to emphasize spare luxury over sprawling expansion, and they attract travelers with deep pockets and a love for sailing and seclusion. (Credit: British Virgin Islands)

Average Temperature: 28°C (82°F)

23. Bali | Indonesia

Shangri-La, Elysium, Arcadia, Utopia and Bali are all synonymous with "heaven." The only difference between them is that you can actually visit Bali. Many travelers have never been to this Indonesian island. Yet, the word "Bali" conjures daydreams of the most fantastical landscape: towering volcanoes wrapped in a deep green canopy, sandy shores that fade into turquoise waters and curving coastlines crowned with staggered pagodas. And believe it or not, Bali rarely disappoints. (Credit: Bali)

Average Temperature: 26°C (79°F)

24. San Francisco | California

A jumbled collage of colorful neighborhoods and beautiful views, San Francisco draws those free-spirited types who have an eye for edgy art, a taste for imaginative cuisine and a zeal for adventure. It's really not surprising that songwriter Tony Bennett left his heart here: The city boasts jaw-dropping sights, world-class cuisine, cozy cafes and plenty of booming nightlife venues — there's no shortage of ways to stay busy here. Spend an hour or two sunning yourself alongside sea lions on the bay, admiring the views of the city from Twin Peaks, or strolling along the Marina. And for the quintessential San Franciscan experience, enjoy a ride on a cable car.  (Credit: San Francisco)

Average Temperature: 14°C (57°F)

25. Argentine Patagonia | Argentina

This region in the Andes mountains is nothing if not enchanting. Cobalt lakes, azure-tinted glaciers, emerald trees, and turquoise skies stretch as far as the eye can see. In fact, Argentine Patagonia's vistas are so sweeping that Charles Darwin once described the region as "boundless." Visit Argentina's Lake District and you'll discover villages brushing against snowy mountain peaks. (Credit: Argentine Patagonia)

Average Temperature: 72 °F (22 °C)

26. Budapest | Hungary

Welcome to Budapest. To put it simply, if you haven't been here, it's time you make plans to do so. The city appeals to many: you can step out of a thermal bath and right into a nightclub (and then back into the bath). In a city that dates back to the Old Stone Age, visiting history buffs can take their pick between Roman, neo-Gothic, Renaissance and Ottoman architecture at sites like Castle Hill and Fisherman's Bastion.  (Credit: Budapest)

Average Temperature: 21°C (70°F)

27. Montreal | Quebec

There is only one word that really captures the essence of Montreal: multifaceted. This city represents the melding of the Old and New Worlds, with 18th-century structures blending into a 21st-century skyline.  (Credit: Montreal)

Average Temperature: 21°C (70°F)

28. Dubai | United Arab Emirates

Dubai and Las Vegas have a lot in common. Both cities share a love for the fantastical, with skylines that shine like beacons against barren desert backdrops. People from all over the world flock to these shimmering oases with the same goal: to play hard. But as a vacation spot, Dubai easily trumps ol' Sin City thanks to its gorgeous cream-colored Persian Gulf shoreline, international culinary scene and larger-than-life attractions. (Credit: Dubai)

Average Temperature: 28 °C (82 °F)
Notable Locations: Dubai Mall | Burj Al Arab | Burj Khalifa

29. Galapagos Islands | Ecuador

With its untamed terrain and notoriously fearless creatures — from sea lions to seagoing lizards — the isolated isles of the Galápagos lure those looking for exhilarating encounters in the wild. After all, where else can you observe giant tortoises grazing on tall blades of grass, short-feathered penguins waddling along the equator or blue-footed boobies conducting their unique mating ritual without flinching at the flash of your camera?  (Credit: Galapagos Islands)

Average Temperature: 27°C (80°F)

30. Chilean Patagonia | Chile

With its aura of remote romance, wind-whipped Chilean Patagonia attracts those travelers with an eye for beauty and a zest for adventure. Icy glaciers plunge into emerald lakes; wild fjords snake through hardwood forests; and the Andes' dramatic peaks ascend into swirling clouds and mist. It's hardly surprising that Chilean Patagonia's fabled lands have lured Magellan, Darwin, and even Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. (Credit: Chilean Patagonia)

Average Temperature: 72 °F (22 °C)

31. Banff | Alberta

If you're itching to experience the lifestyle of a Swiss skiing village, but don't want to fork over the cash for a trans-Atlantic flight, consider Banff. Thanks to its location in the heart of the Canadian Rockies near the southeastern border of Banff National Park – Canada's first national park – taking trips here will decrease not only your flight time from the U.S. but also your expenses (although only marginally). (Credit: Banff)

Average Temperature: 16°C (60°F)

32. Vancouver | British Columbia

Even by North American standards, Vancouver is a young city. But what it lacks in history it compensates for in scenery. Surrounded by mountains and beaches, Vancouver is both an urban and a natural playground: Its chic atmosphere, high-fashion boutiques and fondness for health-conscious eating have earned it the nickname "Hollywood North." Sitting nearly 1,300 miles north of its nickname namesake, Vancouver and its breathtaking backdrop has been the setting for several popular television shows and major motion pictures, such as "Supernatural" and "The Twilight Saga" so don't be surprised if you recognize landmarks from your favorite scenes.

Average Temperature: 18°C (64°F)

33. Seattle | Washington

Seattle's laid-back attitude and diverse neighborhoods more than make up for its consistently cloudy weather. Plus, it's home to some of the country's best coffee and a thriving arts scene, plenty of history, culture and – when the weather permits – some exciting outdoor activities. Surrounded by water (and resting between Puget Sound and Lake Washington), the city's favorite outdoor pursuits include kayaking, hiking and camping. Not only that, but the nearby Olympic Mountains and the giant Mount Rainier are visible from many spots in the city; ski slopes are just a short drive away. (Credit: Seattle)

Average Temperature: 18°C (64°F)

34. Denver | Colorado

Many travelers see Denver as a jumping-off point for a Rocky Mountain getaway, using the Colorado capital for its airport and nothing else. But those folks are missing out: The Mile High City offers a mix of urban excitement and natural surroundings that other American cities can only dream of. We're not saying you should pass on the opportunity to hike the Rockies' trails or ski their slopes — just that you shouldn't do so without making reservations at some of Denver's eclectic eateries, exploring its museums or sampling a few of its famous brews. (Credit: Denver)

Average Temperature: 66°F / 18.9°C

35. Boulder | Colorado

Although it's practically a suburb of Denver, Boulder seems worlds away from its Mile High comrade. A university town stuck in a '60s mindset, Boulder has welcomed every conceivable trend – from alternative healthcare to fad diets – and a perpetual love for nature has made bicycles the choice mode of transportation.  (Credit: Boulder)

Average Temperature: 34.6°F

36. Portland, OR | USA

From its manicured green spaces to its deliciously diverse food scene (plus an ever-evolving selection of locally made beer), Portland has become a must-see destination in the Pacific Northwest. The city overflows with cultural offerings – whether it's the stacks at Powell's World of Book or in one of the more than 65 craft breweries. The city of many nicknames (Stumptown, the City of Roses, Bridge City, P-town, PDX) has emerged as an urbanite's dream, with some of the most pedestrian-friendly streets in the country, many of which are lined with food carts that have given Portland some of the best, most affordable and diverse street food anywhere.

Average Temperature: 41.4°F

37. San Diego | California

Consistently sunny weather and 70 miles of magnificent coastline are what draw active types to San Diego throughout the year: that and the mouthwatering cuisine, thriving nightlife and one of the country's favorite zoos. And then there are the beaches: Retreat to Mission Beach to soak up the rays, to La Jolla to catch a wave and to Coronado for a leisurely seaside stroll.  (Credit: San Diego)

Average Temperature: 63.65°F
Notable Locations: Balboa Park | Mission Beach | Gaslamp Quarter

38. Austin | Texas

Known as the "Live Music Capital of the World," Austin boasts more live music venues per capita than anywhere else in the nation. It has witnessed the early careers of several famous musicians, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Janis Joplin and the Dixie Chicks. Despite significant growth in recent years, Austin maintains a quirky, laid-back atmosphere that you won't find in other Texan cities.  (Credit: Austin)

Average Temperature:  48.85°F
Notable Locations: 6th Street | State Capitol | Zilker Park

39. San Antonio | Texas

Davy Crockett may have perished at the Alamo, but San Antonio clings to the Texan pride shown by the "King of the Wild Frontier" and his compatriots in 1836. This modern city's history especially rears its noble head throughout downtown. In addition to the Alamo, you'll find several other famous missions, all of which are now a part of the San Antonio Missions National Historic Park. And amongst the gleaming skyscrapers, the austere San Fernando Cathedral still stands as a testament to the city's religious past. (Credit: San Antonio)

Average Temperature:  68.7°F
Notable Locations: Brackenridge Park | The Alamo | River Walk

40. Dallas – Fort Worth | Texas

Everything you associate with Texas can be found in Dallas – Fort Worth. This is where you come to see the Dallas Cowboys play and the Fort Worth cowboys rope — where big hats, big hair and big horns are the norm. But stereotypes are just the tip of the DFW iceberg: The Metroplex is a hotbed of history, art, sports and family-centric exploits. The problem is that all of these enticements can be found in both cities, so determining where to allocate your time can get tricky.
(Credit: Dallas – Fort Worth)

Average Temperature: 65.25°F

41. Boston, Massachusetts | USA

Boston – or "Bahston," as the locals say – is not only a hub for baseball, brownstones and bookish collegiate types. It's also home to America's first large free municipal public library, the first subway system, the first public school and the first public park. To say the city is historic would be an understatement, but this wicked smart college town doesn't linger in the past, either. A well-rounded trip to Boston integrates the classic with the contemporary: Split your time between cherished sites like the Paul Revere House and Faneuil Hall and modern attractions like the Museum of Fine Arts.  (Credit: Boston)

Average Temperature: 82 °F (27 °C)

42. Charleston | South Carolina

Centuries-old mansions, Spanish moss-draped trees, spooky cemeteries, cobblestone walks: in a word, Charleston. As you walk the gas lamp-lit streets at night, past horse-drawn carriages and the antebellum architecture, you just might think you've traveled back in time. But just because this South Carolina city is proud to celebrate its heritage doesn't mean it's stuck in the past: Charleston boasts innovative restaurants, interesting shops, contemporary art galleries and the world-class Spoleto Festival USA. (Credit: Charleston)

Average Temperature:  65.85°F

43. Philadelphia | Pennsylvania

With its rich historical heritage, Philadelphia is one of the United States' most visited cities. After all, both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were signed here in Independence Hall. Renaissance man Benjamin Franklin once called this city home. And before Washington, D.C. usurped its role, Philadelphia served as the country's capital. Yet the city is far from being stuck in its glorious past. The Philly of today is filled with notable museums, a bumping nightlife, beloved sports teams and a thriving restaurant scene that encompasses more than just the ubiquitous cheesesteak. (Credit: Philadelphia)

Average Temperature: 55.85°F

44. Costa Rica | Central America

To many, Costa Rica's charm lies in its lush rainforests, unspoiled beaches and abundance of wildlife. With breathtaking landscapes and a myriad of creatures — from toucans to monkeys to jaguars — it's easy to see why. Where else can you hike active volcanoes, zip line through cloud-covered rainforests and surf warm turquoise waters within the span of just a few days? In this compact but diverse tropical paradise, exhilarating outdoor activities are abundant. Nature-seekers will roam thick jungles while beachgoers will sprawl across the powdery sands. It's hard not to admire all the splendors this "Rich Coast" has to offer.  (Credit: Costa Rica)

Average Temperature: 29°C (84°F)
Notable Locations: Nicoya Peninsula | Arenal Volcano | Guanacaste

45. Belize | Central America

Although this small Central American nation spans less than 9,000 square miles — roughly the size of the state of Massachusetts — few places on Earth can match Belize's diverse natural beauty. The barrier reef's turquoise and coral hues contrast with the staggering Mayan ruins scattered throughout the country's lush rainforests. Plus, it's not just the landscape, the history, culture and people of Belize are just as blended. (Credit: Belize)

Average Temperature: 79°F

46. Jamaica | Caribbean

To many, Jamaica is the heart of the Caribbean. The birthplace of reggae music, the Rastafari movement and all-inclusive resorts, Jamaica symbolizes many of the things most loved and, perhaps, most misunderstood about the region. A simple remedy to clear the confusion? Come to the land of sugar cane, coffee and limestone, and form your own opinion. Your new ideas are bound to be swathed in cream-colored beaches, bordered by rugged Blue Mountains, anchored in foamy waterfalls and set to a dancehall soundtrack.  (Credit: Jamaica)

Average Temperature: 29°C (83°F)

47. Bahamas | Caribbean

The Bahamian islands lure millions of visitors to their white-washed shores, duty-free shops, fishing and scuba diving excursions and luxurious accommodations each year. The families that flock here tend to indulge in the diversions of the mega resorts, but this diverse island chain also offers a range of activities away from the hotel zone. (Credit: Bahamas)

Average Temperature: 28°C (82°F)

48. Cozumel | Maya Riviera & The Yucatan

Cozumel's clear turquoise waters and powdery sands coax travelers from cold winter climates to this 250-square-mile island off the Yucatán Peninsula. Cruise ships are a constant feature of Cozumel's coastal views, and the atmosphere on this charming island is often interrupted by tourist chatter. In fact, Cozumel's charms are so effective that the shopping plazas along the waterfront stay congested much of the year.  (Credit: Cozumel)

Average Temperature: 24°C (75°F)

49. Punta Cana | Dominican Republic

The sugary sand of a Punta Cana beach is so soft, so perfectly golden that you might think it was synthetic. And in fact, in this easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, it's possible. By definition, Punta Cana is a manufactured Caribbean getaway, completely catering to the needs of sun-seeking vacationers who like all-inclusive resorts but care little about venturing away from their hotel.  (Credit: Punta Cana)

Average Temperature: 28°C (82°F) 

50. Maldives | South Asia

Picture it: A private villa stands over crystal blue water; days finish with orange sunsets that make you hungry for local citrus; gourmet room service and a masseuse are on call to avoid any unnecessary trips from your porch; and the only thing to make you want to leave is the breathtaking coral reef and underwater creatures that demand a scuba session for a proper introduction.  (Credit: Maldives)

Average Temperature: 29°C (84°F) 
Notable Locations: Male' | Maldives Victory

51. Cayman Islands | Caribbean

The charming Cayman Islands continue to be a coveted Caribbean getaway for both adventurous and more immobile travelers. Gorgeous barrier reefs call to divers as the rum punch calls to the beach bums. Honeymooners hike through the 200-year-old Mastic Trail as parents take their children for interactive swims at Stingray City. Whichever way you choose to mellow out, the Cayman Islands can oblige. (Credit: Cayman Islands)

Average Temperature: 30°C (85°F) 

52. Nice | France

As the glamorous jewel of the French Riviera, Nice beckons beachgoers to stretch out on its shores. But there's more to it than a pebbly waterfront, pastel-colored buildings and palm trees waving in the breeze.  (Credit: Nice)

Average Temperature: 24°C (74°F) 

53. Prague | Czech Republic

A prosperous and bustling city, Prague now attracts more tourists than ever. But its picturesque downtown veils both a dark legacy and a resilient past. Dating back to about A.D. 870, Prague has withstood numerous overthrows, invasions, fires and floods. It's this reputation for survival and perseverance that has made the Czech capital so fascinating. (Credit: Prague)

Average Temperature: 18°C (64°F)

54. St. Petersburg | Russia

St. Petersburg stands at the geographic and cultural borders of the west and east. And though the city is inspired by the intricate and ordered architecture of Western Europe, it is still infused with a vibrant and persevering Russian spirit. St. Petersburg largely owes its dualistic nature to its founder, Peter the Great, an unabashed lover of all things European who commissioned the city's streets and architecture to resemble his favorite western cities. And the results of the Tsar's great experiment? (Credit: St. Petersburg)

Average Temperature: 18°C (64°F)

55. Krakow | Poland

Much more than the sum of its parts, Kraków is one of those cities you have to explore a little before its true charm becomes apparent. Although Warsaw is the political capital, many consider this southern city the true cultural capital of Poland. When you first walk into Rynek Glówny -- a vibrant medieval market square and the symbolic heart of town -- a smile plays across your face as you realize a large part of your trip will be spent here. Lively restaurants, shops, cafés and bars lie along the perimeter and in the surrounding areas.  (Credit: Krakow)

Average Temperature: 19°C (65°F)

56. Berlin | Germany

England takes pleasure in London, the U.S. loves New York, France is slightly narcissistic about Paris, and once again, Germany proudly claims Berlin. More than two decades since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city is basking in a cultural renaissance that is marking everything from museums to fashion, food and nightclubs. (Credit: Berlin)

Average Temperature: 18°C (64°F)

57. Munich | Germany

Munich, the most expensive city in Germany, is also very quaint — and perhaps it's this dual personality that visitors find so charming. Although München plays host to the country's 200-year-old bacchanalia, Oktoberfest, it's also highly modern: the unofficial European capital of publishing and technology. Nuzzling the Bavarian Alps and resting beside the River Isar, the city is rife with natural beauty and yet its streets are also lined with man-made marvels, in the form of designer retail shops and shiny BMWs. In short, you should visit for both the provinciality and progressiveness. (Credit: Munich)

Average Temperature: 18°C (64°F)

58. Glasgow | Scotland

Just a few decades ago, Glasgow was a gray, gritty city of dank pubs and homely slums. However, the same dogged Glaswegians that survived years of deterioration kindled a cultural rejuvenation in the '80s and '90s, fanning the flames of urban renewal throughout the city. Today, Glasgow offers a high-intensity clubbing experience; a surprisingly good art scene; a live-music scene, which has discovered the likes of Franz Ferdinand and Snow Patrol; and numerous places to shop that range from the Barras Market and vintage shops to the jewelry at Argyll Arcade and designer stores.  (Credit: Glasgow)

Average Temperature: 15°C (59°F)

59. Edinburgh | Scotland

Burrowed beside long-dormant volcanoes and reigning over green moorlands, Edinburgh (or Ed-n-bruh in Scots speech) is known for more than its staggering landscape.
