The Five Best Places to Go Before the World Ends

If the world were to end on New Year’s Eve as some predict, where would you travel for the final time? With so many incredible places to see around the globe, it can be hard to narrow down the options. Some destinations are so special and striking that they rise to the top of the list. Here are some of the best places to go before the world ends.

1. Paris


Many people spend their lives dreaming of going to Paris. While taking in the wonderful Parisian sites, you could stay in a bed and breakfast in a quiet neighborhood and spend days wandering cobbled lanes and stopping in brasseries for long lunches complete with French wine and decadent pastries. Paris might be called the City of Light, but it’s a city of all types of pleasures.

2. Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon

Not all of the best places on earth are man-made. One of the top places to see before you die is the Grand Canyon. Bed and breakfasts in nearby Sedona, Arizona are a great base for exploring the region. Outdoor enthusiasts will want to hike or take a mule ride around the canyon. At night, the Grand Canyon is home to some of the best star gazing in the region. This destination is equally suited for a romantic trip or a fun family vacation.

3. New York City


Another destination on many bucket lists is New York City. There is a New York for every type of traveler, whether you love theater, history, food, music, or anything in between. Get to know the city more intimately by choosing a small bed and breakfast in a local neighborhood and live like a New Yorker for a few days before the world ends. Explore Manhattan's parks, markets, small coffee shops, riverside promenades, street food, and more.

4. Austin


If the world is about to end, it’s time to have a little fun. One of the best places to do so is Austin, Texas. In this growing city, visitors can enjoy live music, great nightlife, and a vibrant restaurant scene. Pick a bed and breakfast near downtown, and the best Austin has to offer will be only minutes away. While there isn’t a single attraction here that compares to the Grand Canyon, it is absolutely a place to experience before the end.

5. Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

One destination always on "places to see before you" die lists is Niagara Falls. These three waterfalls are some of the most impressive natural attractions in North America. Make a trip out of it and book a room at a bed and breakfast in Niagara on the Lake. This Canadian town is located in southern Ontario where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario. Fun things to do here include boat rides, spa days, and regional wine tours.
