T+L's 50 Best Places to Visit in 2015 details some of the newest and most exciting adventures to add to your bucket list this year. T+L's own Jacqui Gifford joined MSNBC’s The Cycle to discuss the top spots and trips for travelers looking to escape in the coming months.

Manhattan’s downtown revitalization is making NYC a destination to visit and revisit in the years to come. Milan is another top city to add to the list, it’s having a huge amount of museums and cultural events, not to mention the 2015 World Expo (today’s version of the World’s Fair) bringing a display of environmental and cuisine innovations to the city during the summer. Cuba is now on our radar as well, with the diplomatic relations opening new possibilities for experiencing the country’s unique culture. Find out more on the list, and get planning!
