The New York Times announces “The 46 Places to Go in 2013“
Now this is not just a list of interesting spots. Oh, no. This is a list of “THE” places you must visit, and because the places have been precisely and lovingly vetted and curated, there are exactly 46 of them.
Not 50 places, because any hack can throw together a list with a nice round number like that. By choosing 46 locations, it lends an air of precision and perfection to the crafting of the list.
So check this out… At #7, out of all the places in the world, is Houston (yes, that Houston… Texas.) Right after Rio, Marseille, Nicaragua, Accra (Ghana), Bhutan, and Amsterdam. (“What’s in Houston? Culture and food.”)
And the reason that their choice of Houston is interesting is that it was #1 in our list of the top 20 Coolest Cities in the U.S., which we did with Forbes in July 2012.
