Budget Travel has released their WHERE TO GO 2016, a compilation of must-see destinations for the New Year ahead! Everything from stylish cities to up-and-coming locales to undiscovered gems are on this list - all 24 amazing locations had to be amazingly affordable as well in order to make the cut. My travel alert is on high for deals to these places! Iceland has taken the #1 spot followed by San Antonio and Cuba. Los Angeles is in fourth place - doesn't hurt that I call this city home now. The rest of the WHERE TO GO 2016 list includes nearby destinations in the United States plus additional not-to-be-missed locales in both hemispheres. Below, is the list of the top 24 - where will you go in 2016? (The Budget Travel website has more details on their slideshow!)
