I've been to lots of places...too many to name. A 25 year long career in the airline business made it possible. There are so many beautiful places out there it is hard to narrow it down to just one. You could break it down by climate and or beauty. I think for the climate and life style the Italian or French Riviera's would be hard to beat. As far as beauty goes, (not counting the naked women in the Riviera's) I could look at the Swiss Alps or Rocky Mountains year round and be happy. Since I grew up in CA it's hard not to think about the Sierra Nevada Mountains. My wife thinks Truckee/South Tahoe is one of the prettiest places we've seen. Yep for me some place close to the Mountains....the Rockies or Sierra's works for me.
