Hardy locales

November 08, 2009|Leslie Anne Wiggins

Norway's fjords region earned the highest score in National Geographic Traveler's sixth annual "places rated" survey of destinations that have best weathered the pressures of heavy tourism and other threats. In their decision, judges noted its "gorgeous scenery and well-preserved rural life." The cover story for the November-December issue also ranks Vermont (pictured) as the top U.S. destination, followed by the Columbia Gorge region of Oregon and Washington, and Massachusetts' Berkshires. The issue is on newsstands now.
