"Did not strong connections draw me elsewhere, I believe Scotland would be the country I would choose to end my days in." --Benjamin Franklin

Five days in Edinburgh went way too fast! Even when I tried to limit myself to three or four events a day, it still didn't leave much time for sightseeing, shopping, eating, whisky-tasting and getting to know the city. I did get to see quite a bit, though-- more than enough to know that I want to go back for a longer stay next August. It took all my willpower on the last day to get on the train and head to our next destination-- after changing the itinerary twice to catch afternoon performances!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful, history-rich city, great nightlife, always something to do, especially during THE FESTIVALS!!
  • Cons:No direct flights from the US (at least, not yet)!!
  • In a nutshell:You won't want to leave!
