New York. Seychelles. Tuscany. Sahara. Angkor. Mesa Verde. What do all of these place have in common? They helped make up our “50 Places of a Lifetime” chosen in 1999 for a special edition of our print magazine. We update and reintroduce them to you today in a new iPad app, 50 Places of a Lifetime: The World’s Greatest Destinations.

These iconic destinations have endured over time, and in our app they come alive through personal essays from great writers (Jan Morris, Bill Bryson, and Paul Theroux, to name a few), stunning photo galleries, 360-degree panoramas, video, maps, insider facts—and an interactive checklist for your own places of a lifetime.

From the Loire Valley to Easter Island, you’ll explore the globe’s greatest destinations. As our Editor in Chief, Keith Bellows writes in his introduction, “these places are the stars by which we set sail to our dreams.”

Download the app and browse our online Places of a Lifetime photo gallery.
