My Favorite Travels of 2005

Just a re-cap of some of my personal travel highlights of 2005:
 
 

New places that I went to this year:

  1. New Hamphire - It was just a quick drive over the state line, and a brief little tour, but it counts.
  2. Vermont - It was summertime, so maybe my next visit will be to see the fall colors.

 

Favorite places that I re-visited this year:

  1. Palm Springs, California
  2. Vancouver, British Columbia
  3. Boston, Massachusetts
 
Best hotels that I've stayed in this year (none of which were layover hotels):
  1. Madison Hotel (Washington D.C.) - Great rooms and service.  It was nice to sit on the balcony with a bottle of wine and enjoy a crisp fall night.
  2. Peninsula Hotel (NYC) - Impressive architecture, fun rooftop bar, and a clientele perfect for people-watching.
  3. Mandarin Oriental (NYC) - Lovely spa, decadent pampering. 
  4. St. Regis (NYC) - One of the best Bloody Mary's that I've ever had in my entire life was at their bar.

Just a little dinner party with friends. Very low key.

You visited some of my favorite places this year. Good luck with your resolution to visit more states in 2006.

I'm over half way through the states, and only have a few of the really big ones left. Then it's onto some of the smaller ones.
