Charlie Brown called it decades ago: post-modern life has a way of quickly converting good tidings and joy into debilitating stress, a tad too much togetherness, and feral consumerism that invariably leads to the Dantean experience of endlessly circling jam-packed mall parking lots. Even in Lalaland, it’s easy to opt out for an escapist afternoon.

A note about Trazzler’s slideshows: we don’t do top-tens or best-of lists. Nor are we so morbid or presumptuous as to tell you where you must go before you shuffle off this mortal coil. The world is far too big and fascinating to encapsulate in any kind of definitive list. We simply chose the places that our writers have contributed that make us think, laugh, dream, and, in this case, experience a vicarious vertiginous thrill. –Megan Cytron, Editor of Trazzler
