Bordeaux, France; Cape Town, South Africa; Los Angeles USA; Merida, Mexico; Ohrid, Macedonia; Pistoia, Italy; Seoul, South Korea; Lisbon, Portugal; Moscow, Russia; and Portland OR USA.

Do you agree? We’re a bit puzzled by the choices, especially a couple of cities on the list we’ve rarely, if ever, heard about before. Also, the survey left out such senior traveler favorites as Virginville, Podunk, Loveladies, Intercourse, Bird-in-Hand and, of course, Punkeydoodles Corners.
