Where to take your suitcase in the new year

<p>For travel this year, whether you want to go to a place that makes your friends scratch their heads or stick to a place closer to home, Robert Reid, contributor to “Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2010: The Best Trends, Destinations, Journeys &amp; Experiences for the Upcoming Year,” has some suggestions on where to go in 2010.</p>

“There’s this kind of trend toward finding ‘The Real America,’” says Reid. This has been bolstered by Ken Burns’ “The National Parks” and HBO’s “John Adams.” “Whether it’s a quilt show, a Civil War reenactment, a folk-art show, or the bourbon trail around Kentucky, people are trying to find the back roads to see those little pieces of America.”
