Colorado City Makes National Geographic's 'Best Of The World 2021'


There’s no doubt travel is on a lot of people’s minds, mostly because they can’t really do it. But nothing is stopping folks from dreaming about one day getting away again, and National Geographic is here to help with that.

The mag has just come out with their "Best of the World 2021” list. It features 25 destinations in categories of sustainability, family, nature, adventure and culture/history.

While the list contains many destinations around the world, several U.S. spots made the list.

Denver, Colorado landed on the sustainability list, while Space Coast, Florida was highlighted for families. Isle Royale, Michigan also made the list for adventure, while Tulsa, Oklahoma was singled out in the culture/history category.
