For the travel-minded, a new year brings a fresh round of planning travel excursions—and starting to budget for them.
Luckily for many would-be vacationers, industry experts have loads of suggestions for places that should be on any traveler's list, and they run the gamut from reasonable to money being no object.

Renewed diplomatic ties between the U.S. and the tropical island has resulted in the lifting of travel restrictions, and lots of would-be travelers making vacation plans to get there. Other options may include a new attraction, a major sports event, or celebrations that mark milestone anniversaries.
