Where do the Travel + Leisure editors want to go? These three destinations are on our radar now.

T+L Pick: Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville, Tennessee has always been home to country music but we’re noticing the rise of exciting, enterprising chefs. Start at Josephine, a farm-to-table-style spot in the 12 South area, then hit Pinewood Social, with a menu by local star Josh Habiger. The stellar turkey and cranberry sandwich tastes like Thanksgiving any day of the year.

T+L Pick: Little Corn Island, Nicaragua

We’re always looking for the next great secret beach escape. Our bets are on Little Corn Island in Nicaragua for its blissfully slow pace and the delectable fresh lobster dinners. The new Yemaya Island Hideaway & Spahas just 16 cabanas and morning yoga sessions.

T+L Pick: Iceland

According to NASA, this winter will bring incredible, you-can’t-believe-it stargazing in Iceland. So now’s the time we’re booking our stay at Ion Hotel, an hour outside Reykjavik. From the wraparound terrace, you may spot the Northern Lights as they reach the peak of an 11-year solar cycle this December.
