Frommer’s Top Travel Destinations for 2007

The votes are in! This year, the editors at Frommer’s Travel Guides and Frommers.com scoured the globe and polled our stable of authors and experts to identify twelve surprising, thriving, or emerging travel destinations. After careful thought and consideration, we are thrilled to announce our picks of the places not to be missed in 2007.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

A Midwestern city already known for its gorgeous city layout and its fine arts community, Minneapolis is experiencing a cutting-edge design boom. The blockbuster new Guthrie Theater (now located in the Mill District along the Mississippi River) is a sight to behold — a sleek, dark-blue steel building designed by the architect Jean Nouvel. The Walker Art Center has been expanded and also in the works is an addition to the Frank Gehry-designed Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota, which some say evokes his later, more famous Guggenheiim Bilbao. Though winters are harsh, Minneapolis is a fantastic place to be outside. Alongside the Mississippi is a series of lakes that wind through downtown, where you can bike, jog, or just hang out. The Guthrie’s new location, with its spectacular views of St. Anthony Falls, is also bringing more traffic to this neighborhood, in addition to shops and restaurants.
