From Bilbao to Yucatan

Feel the wanderlust! Frommer’s travel editors have hit the ground running with their annual Best Places list, featuring locations from all over the world. After two years of domestic travel advisories — battling airport shortages, flight delays and high gas prices — they’re announcing (cautiously) optimism about this far-flung list of cities, countries and regions on six continents.

Some offer huge celebrations – for example, Vilnius, Lithuania turns 700 years old. Some, including Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, will offer new, streamlined ways to travel next year.
