Striking out on the open road at least once or twice a year helps all of us live better lives. But where to go? The world is vast and full of a seemingly endless list of choices. Over at US News they conduct a yearly survey to parse the best places for adventure around the world. Hopefully it’ll help you find the perfect destination to escape to this year.
This year’s survey asked “a total of 21,372 individuals from 36 countries” (note how surveys about tourism and soda seem to be way more thorough than 99% of scientific studies) about how they traveled, which countries were awesome, and why. The countries they deemed the best for adventure had the highest marks for being “friendly, fun, pleasant climate, scenic, sexy.”
Let’s jump right in. Here’s your visual tour of US News’ top ten ‘Best Countries For Adventure.’
