With the new year 2020 on the horizon, it’s time once again to come up with New Year’s resolutions. 2020 is a huge year with great ideas in mind. Everyone has some special resolution for the new year. Everyone says, “I want to be more giving”, “I want to be more respectful to my boss and colleagues”, and “I want to be more adventurous”. Being more adventurous is warm enough. It’ll be really nice to hear someone say “I want to be more adventurous while traveling”. There, that’s the way to go! The new year 2020 is filled with so many great opportunities to take advantage of. To kick off the new year, here are the top five travel experiences for the new year 2020.
At #5, Walt Disney World in Florida is slowly but maturely preparing for its 50th Anniversary. Recently, at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is “Rise of The Resistance”, an immersive attraction which Fast Passes prior to traveling are a must. Also at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the well-spoken about, “Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run”. Again, Fast Passes are a must. Who doesn’t want to experience new attractions in Walt Disney World during the new year 2020? It is among one of the greatest travel experiences any family could appreciated. Transportation to and from Disney’s Hollywood Studios has never been easier with the opening of Disney’s Skyliner, connecting Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios serving Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Walt Disney World is more than just the place where dreams come true. Walt Disney World is where the force is with you!
Of all travel experiences, Bicycle Heaven in Pittsburgh, is #4 on the new year travel list. Pittsburgh is more than just the Steel City and the City of Champions. Pittsburgh is home to an incredible museum experience for avid bicyclists of all ages. Bicycle Heaven was founded in 2011 by Craig and Mindy Morrow. Bicycle Heaven is home to the world’s largest collection of bicycles from vintage to present day, along with the largest bike shop in the United States. At Bicycle Heaven, admission is FREE. Donations of any amount are welcomed at the door. Bicycle Heaven is located on Preble Avenue on the north shore of the Allegheny River. Further information is available at https://www.bicycleheaven.org.
Coming in at #3 on the new year 2020 travel list, is the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Pittsburgh. The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City is overrated. The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Pittsburgh is a parade experience not to be passed For adults of all ages, it’s one of the best travel experiences to be checked off on the list. In Pittsburgh, the Irish roots run deeper than in New York City. It is more than just one day of celebrating. It lasts up to a whole week, depending on where in the city anyone ventures to. In Pittsburgh, the Saint Patrick’s Day beats out New York City’s parade single-handed. The parade begins at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and 11th Street to Grant Street to the Boulevard of the Allies. Got a camera for still photographs and video? Got a Terrible Towel? Travelers will be so glad they did. Saint Patrick’s Day in Pittsburgh is a day for all to treasure, black and gold style. After the parade, why not top off the day with a hearty dinner at famous Primanti Bros? Their signature sandwiches and mouth-watering wings make a great chaser for the green beer.
Williamsburg, VA on the whole is home to a smorgasbord of travel experiences. Nearing the top of the list at #2, is Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. What’s new at America’s most beautiful theme park? This coming Spring 2020, Busch Gardens will be opening its newest steel roller coaster, Pantheon. Pantheon is no one’s average steel roller coaster. Pantheon is the world’s first ever multi-launch coaster. Busch Gardens is home to other tempting roller coasters, including Alpengeist, Apollo’s Chariot, and The Griffon. To view the video of Pantheon, click on the link, https://buschgardens.com/williamsburg/roller-coasters/pantheon/. To top off the day, guests should take a “swing” at Finnegan’s Flyer. What else awaits in Williamsburg? Craft beer fans can experience the tour “Drink Williamsburg”. The tour takes visitors around Williamsburg to a smorgasbord of craft beer breweries around the city’s historic confines. Tour highlights include Billsburg Brewery, Brass Cannon Brewing Company, and King of Clubs Brewing Company. In Williamsburg, everyone’s welcome to join in on the fun.
Finally at #1 is the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. It is by far the most sought-after travel experiences on the east coast. The National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC. The It celebrates the enduring friendship between the people of the United States and Japan. The festival lasts four weeks.

What’s the National Cherry Blossom Festival like? It’s a celebration like no other. It’s “petal to the metal”. For more information travelers can visit https://nationalcherryblossomfestival.org.
The new year 2020 is more than just a number. It is a year with many great things to do, things to experience, sights to see, and occasions to truly appreciate. The new year 2020 is going to be a year like no other. There’s truly no doubt about it.
