There are lots of ways to make a vacation great. But, one way to guarantee it is to go somewhere known to be "Great". Here's some information on how to plan your trip to see some of the world's truly greatest locales!
The Great Wall of China - You've seen it from space, you've seen it in movies. But, you've never seen it in person. China's Great Wall is one of the world's most popular historic travel destinations and Best Western has made sure that you are taken care of throughout your stay in Beijing. Premier level accommodations are even available nearby and are sure to make your trip to the over 13,000 mile long wall.
The Great Barrier Reef - The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system and is located off of the Northwest coast of Australia. As one of the continent's major attractions, the tourists are estimated to generate over $4 billion every year. Dozens of Best Western and BEST WESTERN PLUS locations in the Queensland and Brisbane area are sure to give you scuba divers and snorkelers a comfy place to dry off and get a meal from one of the nearby acclaimed Seafood restaurants.
The Great Lakes - For those of you who were hoping to see a "Great" without having to pay for international plane tickets and passports, the Great Lakes offer a quick and beautiful getaway. Spanning 8 states and a sizeable chunk of the Canadian border, the Great Lakes have always been a major factor in commercial distribution. The massive bodies of water contain enough fresh water to cover the 48 contiguous states in about 9.5 feet of water. That's about 21% of the world's fresh surface water. With over 30 major US and Canadian cities on their shores, the Great Lakes offer practically endless Best Western lodging possibilities.
The Great Pyramid of Giza - The Great Pyramids are one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World and are certainly a site to behold. The Great Pyramid of Giza towers over the rest at 481 feet tall. This edifice took 10-20 years to construct and served as the tomb for the Pharaoh Khufu. At the time of its construction it stood as the tallest man made structure in existence and held its title for over 3,800 years. After a full day of ancient tombs and mummy exhibits, know that you have a modern Best Western room waiting for you in nearby Cairo.
