If you are like most people, you’re a list maker. Projects at work. Projects at home. Sign the kids up for camp. Prepare for tomorrow’s meeting. Plan the family’s big summer vacation or that spa retreat for just the two of you. Maybe it’s a golf getaway for the guys or a dream cruise for the girls. You’re on your own on the summer camp decisions, but we can definitely provide inspiration for the travel portions of your to-do list, and this issue of Celebrated Living might just add some sizzle to your summer.

When it comes to travel, it’s interesting how it becomes less of a to-do list and more of a fun, dreamy wish list. We all tend to tear out articles, collect ideas for cool hotels and great trips, and stash them in “want to go” folders. If this sounds like you, then snag this magazine and take it home with you. Go ahead; we want you to.

Click here for our Readers’ Choice Platinum List, filled with hotels, golf courses, spas, and cruise lines that have been declared by the readers of Celebrated Living to be the best of the best. I’m happy to report that even more CL readers weighed in with opinions this year than last, and 11 lucky voters were randomly selected to share the incentive of a cool million AAdvantage miles. Check out the fresh format of the Platinum List, thanks to art director Marilyn Calley. Each category is accompanied by an in-depth story with trends and industry news sure to spark ideas for your travel wish list.

More dreamy destinations can be found by clicking here, and the Out Islands of the Bahamas is one of them. I can personally attest to the simple and striking beauty of this area, and if you are a beach lover — as I am — you will be smiling at every turn when you see it for yourself. We also highlight the latest bright and colorful fashion accessories (click here) to rev up your summer. Better start another wish list.

No summer is complete without attending a few great concerts. The band Chicago has been wowing audiences for decades, and this year is no exception. We profile them as our “celebrated Travelers” (click here). Let me guess: catching a Chicago concert has been on your wish list? Well, the band and Celebrated Living are at your service — big time. Visit celebratedliving.com for a chance to win tickets to one of their concerts, backstage passes to meet the band, plus 50,000 AAdvantage miles!

Now enjoy this summer issue, make your list, and get out there and have some fun!
