The Cities You Need to See in Your Lifetime

Cities offer their own form of adventure—and some even satisfy the most active outdoor enthusiasts—so we decided to honor and highlight the 15 cities you should absolutely see in your lifetime.

Among the many criteria, cities were judged on access to outdoor adventure, greenspace (or preserved land), general aesthetic, culinary chops, nightlife, art scene and friendliness of locals (which played a small part in the rankings). The chosen cities were picked from around the globe and, hopefully, offer a small sampling of the diversity that’s out there.

From South Carolina to South Africa, these are the 15 cities you need to see in your lifetime.
