Travel in 2018 was all about far-flung, unexpected experiences—and 2019 is no different. But rediscovering the world's must-sees, delving deeper into already-trendy destinations, and visiting countries worthy (and in need) of tourism are only some of the ways to travel well this year. Sometimes the new year is not all about novelty, and travel in 2019 will require taking another look at destinations already on your radar. Here, BAZAAR's 19 places to visit in 2019—whether you're looking to adventure, or indulge in some much needed self-care.
In recent years, southern cities like Charleston, Savannah, Austin, and Houston have been on the radar for domestic travel, taking the place of chic metropolises like Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City. In 2019, big cities are making a comeback–and Nashville is the happy medium between the gentlemanly ease of the south and the bustle of the east coast.
This town, to be expected, is all about music and nightlife–and an up-and-coming hotel scene has emerged to cater to the crowds looking for a long weekend away. The Hermitage Hotel is a regal staple, where one almost feels that time has been turned back to a more glamorous era. But the cool kids are gravitating towards the quaint accommodation, like The Germantown Inn, a house built in 1865 restored into a chic, warm, home-away-from-home.
