The Hudson Valley Is on Lonely Planet's List of Top 10 Us Travel Destinations for 2012
Add “exploring your own backyard” to your bucket list.
Your sophomore year of college. That guy down the hall, the one who read a lot of Nietzsche and listened to a lot of Jethro Tull but never went to class. Remember when he tried to convince you that the Inca Trail was “like, totally do-able” with a backpack and a copy of Pablo Neruda’s love poems? You thought he was bonkers until he handed you a Lonely Planet guide. Wasn’t the well-thumbed, soft-blue spine on that travel book so comforting, so informative, so… right?
No doubt, and the rounded lower-case letters in Lonely Planet’s logo did it again in December with the announcement that the Hudson Valley should be on readers’ Top 10 US travel destinations for 2012.
“It’s a real city break,” said the venerable firm’s annual year-end guide of “what’s buzzing for travelers in the coming year.”
So re-connect with that guy on Facebook—anyone know what happened to him?—and tell him you’ll meet him in the hottest destination of all.
