The first three results are bucket lists I added to this Collection. They are not necessarily my choices but I hope it gives you the information you need. First on my bucket list was Big Sur. And everyone loves NY. After that, well, it's pretty subjective.
A bucket list of marathons to run.
Another list to help you decide what marathon to run.
