Alsace, France

While destinations like Paris and the Cote d’Azur attract the country's majority of visitors, the region of Alsace is a top spot for country-lovers and crowd-avoiders. Kaysersberg, which is located in the region, was once voted the favorite local village by the French. Exemplifying many of the characteristics endearing Alsace to French travelers worldwide, Kaysersberg boasts medieval architectures dated back to the 13th century, world-renowned scenic wine caves, and the hearty delicacy of Alsatian cuisine.

Tunisia, North Africa

Tunisia offers a cheaper Mediterranean vacation. Rich in Roman history, the country has a magnificent Roman coliseum, which some argue is even better than the original. Like any Mediterranean country, Tunisia boasts scenic sandy beaches and various bazaars filled with carpets, metalwork, ceramics, and other local artisanal trinkets. But unlike other Mediterranean countries, exploring Tunisia at the fullest is comparatively lighter in the pocket.

Guatemala, Central America

Guatemala has been a consistent favorite destination for vacations among travelers due to its extensive combination of breathtaking natural beauty and jaw-dropping historic wonders.

Guatemala offers something for every taste, from hiking the mountains and jungles, wandering through evocative ancient Mayan ruins, and exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of colonial streets in Antigua.
