Contest 14: Travel Agent to the Stars
Our NASA sources confirm that 50 years from now, on Jan. 2, 2050, Martian tourists will land on Earth. The Extreme Travelistas have been contracted to plan their itinerary for their maiden visit. Your job is to come up with the best single example of each type of earthly feature listed below. We will tally your votes to create the Extreme Earth Tour Itinerary. We can't tell you how we're choosing the winner of our galactically coveted Travel mug -- you gotta trust us on this -- but please explain, very briefly, why you picked each site you put on the list. Only one site per category, please! We will publish the complete itinerary, for all Earthlings and Martians to see, in a future issue.
