Destinations like New York City, Paris and Rome may be on your travel bucket list, but those cities can be overcrowded with other tourists who have the same travel plans. Instead of visiting popular tourist spots, consider some of these destinations off the beaten path that still pack plenty of charm.

 

Visit Bath Instead of London

The charming town in the countryside of southwest England offers cultural attractions, fine dining, year-round festivals and Roman baths, of course. Bath is about a 1.5-hour train ride from London.

 

Visit Cologne Instead of Berlin

Explore Cologne, Germany’s 2,000-year-old city along the Rhine River. The city mixes modern attractions with historic architecture.

 

Visit Ho Chi Minh City Instead of Bangkok

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, in southern Vietnam, is a cosmopolitan city bursting with a vibrant culinary scene and modern wonders.

 

Visit Monterey Instead of San Francisco

Travel south of San Francisco to Monterey. The town featured in the series Big Little Lies is full of coastal charm with seafood restaurants, shopping and a popular aquarium.

 

Visit Montevideo Instead of Buenos Aires

Uruguay’s capital city is less visited than other more popular destinations in South America. The port city offers beautiful beaches, cultural attractions and traditional steakhouses. Montevideo is also a popular LGBTQ+ destination.
