TIME FOR KIDS – 2019 WORLD’S COOLEST PLACES
TIME For Kids revealed the first-ever list of the World’s 50 Coolest Places of 2019, spotlighting a mix of educational, innovative, and fun destinations that are tailored to the interests of kids. The local Manitowoc attraction, Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center, received this distinction.
“If you haven’t been here yet, I hope this prompts you to come see us,” says Patty Lehn, Farm Wisconsin’s executive director. “This certainly validates the founders’ original idea–and we’re keeping that ‘cool factor’ in mind as we plan future programs and attractions.”
To assemble the list, TIME for Kids gathered nominations from its network of TFK Kid Reporters and from young readers around the world. Each nomination was then evaluated on several factors, including quality, originality, sustainability, and accessibility.
The result: a list of 50 exciting, innovative, and iconic destinations around the world—from a Michelin-starred restaurant in Singapore with a gourmet kids’ menu to America’s tallest sand dunes, which are perfect for sledding.
