PLACES YOU SHOULD VISIT IN 2018 BEFORE THEY GET TOO POPULAR

For every primo travel destination, there’s a sweet spot to find it. Visit too soon — say, before the airlines start offering half-decent service there — and you’ll be forking over a stack of cash to ramble around a place without cell phone towers. Visit too late? Then you’re one of the waddling herd, overpaying for a beer, checking off a box because, well, everyone else has been, so why not you?

Better plan: Discover the places that don’t cost two months’ rent to fly to, yet haven’t gotten so overexposed that swarms of American tourists have descended and Instagrammed the lifeblood out of it. Think how psyched you’d be to hit Iceland circa 2011. Or Austin in the 1980s. Hawaii in the 1950s. Paris in… hell, what, the year 1500? In time to be one of the cool kids, anyway.
We’ve got 13 places you’re about to hear a lot more about — spots that are becoming more affordable, more accessible, and more intriguing than ever. You still have time to have discovered them back when they were cool.
