TIME has released its annual list of the World’s 100 Greatest Places, naming the best destinations travelers can head to in 2021, so long as travel restrictions allow.

The list features picks from all seven continents.

The U.S. has 21 destinations on the list. Sadly, none of them are in Michigan, but there are some spots not far from the Mitten.

U.S. cities on the list include Big Sky, Montana; Denver; Houston; Hudson Valley, New York; Indianapolis; the Island of Hawaii; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Memphis; California’s Napa Valley; New Orleans; West Virginia’s New River Gorge National Park and Preserve; New York City; Orlando; Philadelphia; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Sarasota, Florida; Savannah, Georgia; Seattle; St. Louis and Talkeetna, Alaska.

Other spots in North America include Canada’s Jasper, Alberta and Winnipeg, Manitoba and Mexico’s La Paz and Puerto Escondido.

How many cities have you visited? For me, it looks like Orlando, Florida and Los Angeles, California are the only ones. I need to get on that!
