Every year, as part of our Departures 100 list, our editors meticulously assemble a compendium of the 100 people, places, and things worth knowing about. As always, some are new, some are tried-and-true. But everything will matter in 2017. From a new way to see Chile (by balloon over the Atacama desert) to a stay at revamped Irish castle, a wine country stay in Napa to skiing in the Dolomites, the places to stay in 2017.
