The weather outside is frightful ('Let It Snow' pun) enough to make you want to plan your next vacation, perhaps seeking a destination abroad.

With the new year approaching, why not start planning out your next vacation destination? The travel insurance comparison company, InsureMyTrip, researched travel insurance purchases from the past year in order to find out what the top international vacation destinations are for each state.

Given the lack of oceanside real estate in North Dakota, you might think there are an endless amount of destinations that would satisfy anyone in need of a vacation from our state. InsureMyTrip narrowed it down to the top five:

  1. The Caribbean
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Italy
  4. Canada
  5. Australia

While the top three for North Dakota were very common with almost every state, North Dakota was one of just twelve states to pick Canada as a top destination and only one of three states to pick Australia as an international vacation destination.

A whole new year and a long winter is ahead of you, North Dakota. Plenty of time to think about that ultimate vacation destination for 2018.
