12 Distinctive Destinations For 2007

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has published its annual list of twelve unique communities with a commitment to preservation.

"From a charming Colorado mining town nestled among spectacular red sandstone bluffs where Puebloan ruins abound, to a Southern city that's home to a presidential library and linked forever to a defining moment in American history, to an 18th-century drop-dead gorgeous Chesapeake jewel of a town, America offers a wealth of alternative vacation destinations that symbolize an increasing dedication to historic preservation.

In recognition of this travel trend, The National Trust for Historic Preservation, the country's largest private, nonprofit preservation organization, today announced the selection of its 2007 Dozen Distinctive Destinations, an annual list of unique and lovingly preserved communities in the United States."

"The list of 12 destinations was selected from a total of 63 destinations in 27 states nominated by individuals, preservation organizations and communities."

The list includes places such as Charlottesville, Virginia, Providence, Rhode Island, West Hollywood, California, and Little Rock, Arkansas.
