One of the most popular travel magazines TRAVEL + LEISURE just published the ” 50 Best Places to Travel in 2018″ with Walla Walla Valley, Washington in the top 10 list. Walla Walla Valley has become home to one of the finest wine regions in the nation, with more than 100 wineries and 2,800 acres of grapes. In addition to the breath taking wineries, Walla Walla offers its visitors many activities from fine dining, outdoor concerts, and scenic hikes, and all with a small town friendliness that will leave visitors with a lasting impression.

E’ritage Vineyard Resort in the heart of Walla Walla. Nestled on 300 acres, along with the sprawling grape vines, blue mountains, rolling hills and a crystal lake, this resort boasts 10 luxury guest suites, as well as a destination restaurant tucked along the side of the lake with a menu created by the James Beard Award-winning chef Jason Wilson. Guests are greeted by the Fire & Vine Hospitality team who are ranked as one of the highest quality hospitality companies in the United States, and provide guests with an unparalleled experience during their stay.

Today’s travelers are hyper-connected and more aware than ever of all the world has to offer. It’s thrilling to be confronted with so much possibility — but daunting, too. That’s why, each year, we curate a list of the best places to travel in the months ahead. (If you haven’t checked off all the places on 2017’s list, you can find those here.)

It starts by turning to the experts for their opinions on where to go: we survey our travel writers around the globe, our A-List travel advisors, and our own staff. Then we take a look at what places are now at the forefront of the global conversation, whether for new hotel or museum openings or the launch of major international events. In any given year, the cities and countries we deem the best places to travel in the world had better have a lot going on. Finally, we think about those travel destinations that are perennial favorites to determine which ones are reinventing themselves, and ensuring there’s always something new to explore.

Whether you’re after heart-stopping adventure, a close-up look at the past, or a single perfect meal, these are the 50 most exciting destinations to discover in 2018. If you already know where you’re going, share your plans with us on social media with #TLBestPlaces.

Walla Walla Valley, Washington

With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, the southeastern corner of Washington State is home to three flourishing viticultural regions: the Columbia, Walla Walla, and Yakima Valleys. But in recent years Walla Walla has come into its own as the next must-visit destination for oenophiles, golfers, and cyclists alike. With more than 140 wineries producing European-style Syrahs, Cabernets, and Merlots, there’s no shortage of tasting rooms in the valley, which hosts four weekend-long wine events each year. The region gets its first high-end resort in February, when Va Piano winemaker Justin Wylie and James Beard Award–winning chef Jason Wilson open the 10-suite Eritage on a 300-acre plot north of the city of Walla Walla. Change is afoot in town, too: there are new tasting rooms from BaronsBledsoe Family, and Nocking Point, and a historic building is set to open as the Penrose Walla Walla Hotel & Spa next year. —Christopher Tkaczyk
