Destination Bracket: The One Seeds


#ihateyouroneseeds.  We hear you.  Everybody loves an underdog.  It’s lonely at the top for our four one seeds, but the selection committee feels strongly that their place is right and just in each region.  And haters gonna hate no matter what.  But for those needing a little more insight, here’s why your favorite city isn’t number one. Salt Lake City: has your city hosted a Winter Olympics?  Why don’t you call me sometime when the whole world is watching your city all day, every day, for the better part of three weeks.  Oh, and while you’re at it, try being awesome at everything. Philadelphia: in what is clearly a stacked region, admittedly this wasn’t an easy choice.  Each city is loaded with historical significance and talent, but only one city has a statue of Rocky Balboa presiding over it.  Everybody loves a good come-from-behind story of the underdog, and never has that been epitomized more than from the rise to the top of the City of Brotherly Love.  Yo, Adrian! New Orleans:  Beignets for breakfast every single day.  Regardless of whether that is actually a common practice, everybody else in America wishes they did—every single day.  And while breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, we strongly encourage you to save room for Muffulettas for lunch, King Cake for an afternoon snack, and round out the day with a bowl of Gumbo before stuffing your face with some Jambalaya or a Crawfish Etouffee.  ‘Nuff said. Aruba:  on the heels of one of the most brutal winters in recent memory, who cares who is number one or number four in this region of the bracket?  If you’re lucky enough to be heading out to any one of these beautiful, sunny destinations this spring, you’ll put as much thought into as we did.  We clearly just ranked these destinations alphabetically.  “Aruba, Jamaica, ohh I wanna take ya…”  We don’t care where you take us, just take us. We're begging you. Just because these four are sitting on top of their regions doesn’t mean they’ll be dancing for long.  Vote with your fingers and tell us why we’re wrong! And while the bracketology in the Destination Bracket might be totally fake, the destinations aren't! You can book right now at!
