Best in Travel: Top 4 Destinations for 2018
If you are looking for travel inspiration for your next big vacation, you might be struggling to choose from the many destinations across the world. With so much choice, deciding where to go next can be challenging. If you need a little assistance narrowing down your search, here are the four top destinations for 2018.
1. New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
2018 is the perfect year to visit New Orleans. The city will be celebrating its 300th anniversary with plans to party in style with locals and the rest of the world. The tricentennial will, therefore, be a celebration of the Big Easy’s rich history, past accomplishments, and the resilience of its people when faced with adversity.
The city is stronger than ever before and offers around-the-clock nightlife, as well as exciting Creole cuisine that is a melting pot of American, African and French cultures. Of course, one of the best times to visit is in late winter when the city hosts the famous Mardi Gras, which is a carnival that offers colorful street parties and exciting costumed parades.

2. Valetta, Malta
Valetta is currently celebrating being named European Capital of Culture 2018, so there is no better time to visit the Maltese capital, as it is now hosting a year-long festival of music, art, theater and literature. You cannot help but fall in love with the historic city, as you will feel as if you have stepped inside ancient Greece. The destination is also starting to be added to more cruise ship itineraries, so you should try to visit Valetta before it becomes overpopulated with tourists.
3. Labrador, Canada
If you love nothing more than a fun and active hiking experience, you will want to visit Labrador in 2018. Labrador is home to Canada’s newest and most remote national park, which is called Akami-Uapishku-KakKasuak-Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve. The roadless wilderness is a 4,131 square mile park, which is almost the equivalent to the size of Jamaica. Expect to fall head over heels in love with its rugged landscape, mesmerizing wildlife, and beautiful views of the famous Wonderstrands. You will definitely want to pack your camera – and a good pair of hiking boots.
4. Leeuwarden, Friesland, Netherlands
Sharing the title of 2018 European Capital of Culture with Valetta is Leeuwarden, which is the capital of the Dutch province of Friesland. In addition to many celebratory events and exhibitions taking place across the city, you can experience the buzz of its atmospheric nightlife, shop until you drop at the vast array of stores, or you can take a stroll along the many picturesque canals and cobbled lanes. You can also relax in style at one of the many luxurious hotels across the city, and you can also explore various museums, historic buildings, and restaurants. If you have a day to spare in your schedule, you can take a day trip to Amsterdam, which is less than two hours away by car.
