10. Melbourne, Australia
Melbourne may be one of Australia’s largest metropolises, but it also happens to be an unparalleled vacation spot. There are plenty of great beaches in the city, like St. Kilda — but for the real good stuff, take a drive along the Great Ocean Road. It’s a 151-mile stretch of coastline, rugged scenery (including the stunning Twelve Apostles an hour or two outside of Melbourne), deserted beaches, and prime surf spots, putting every other road trip route to shame.
