It's time to book a vacation... to Queens.
That is, at least according to the fine folks at Lonely Planet, who have released their "Best in the US 2015" list. While there are plenty of good reasons to always go to New Orleans, the same can't be said for western South Dakota or even the Mount Shasta region in California. Sure, they're beautiful and sure they're different, but why is 2015 their year?
Never fear, we'll tell you.
Correction: A previous version incorrectly stated the Greenville is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
