NEW YORK---See Cuba before it changes. Check
out the Expo in Milan. And if you're heading to
New York City to see the view from 1 World Trade
Centre's observatory, take the subway to Queens
and see if you can figure out why it topped Lonely
Planet's "best in the US" destinations for 2015.
Several major anniversaries will also be marked by
a variety of events in 2015, including 70 years since
the end of World War II, the 60th anniversary of the
opening of Disneyland and ten years since Hurricane
Katrina hit New Orleans.
The Milan Expo opens in May for six months and
is expected to draw 20 million visitors. The expo is
the modern incarnation of the old world's fairs that
thrilled 19th- and 20th-century guests with new
products and technology. The theme of the Milan
Expo is food and nutrition, and dozens of countries
will be participating. Milan's famous opera house,
La Scala, normally closed in the summer, will host
performances daily during the expo.
Singapore celebrates its golden Jubilee---50 years
since independence from Great Britain. Vietnam cel-
ebrates 70 years since independence from France and
50 years since the first US combat troops arrived at
Da Nang, which some historians say marked the start
of the Vietnam War---even though Americans had
been sent to the country in prior years.
A number of US museums and historic sites will
be hosting exhibits and events to mark 150 years
since the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the
end of the Civil War.
The new year also marks 70 years since the end
of World War II, both the defeat of Nazi Germany
and the atomic bombing of Japan that ended the war
in Asia. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are planning memo-
rial services on the August anniversaries of the bomb-
ings, along with numerous arts projects and peace-
themed events throughout the year.
In New Orleans, August 29 is ten years since the
devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
The news that the US intends to normalise relations
with Cuba could lead to a rush of travellers hoping
to experience the island before it loses its frozen-in-
time culture to an onslaught of US chain stores,
hotels and tourists.
NEW YORK CITY
Two big openings take place in the Big Apple in
2015: the observatory at 1 World Trade and the new
Whitney Museum of American Art in May in Man-
hattan's Meatpacking District near the High Line
and the Hudson River. The city also got a Christmas
gift from Lonely Planet, which named the borough
of Queens as "best in the US" destination. Queens
has attractions like the 1964 World's Fair grounds,
the hipster beach scene in the Rockaways, Chinatown
in Flushing, the Asian and Latin American ethnic
mix in Jackson Heights and the emerging industri-
al-chic ambience of Long Island City. But the borough
is not quite on tourist radars yet---though the Lonely
Planet pronouncement may change that.
Universal Studios Hollywood debuts two new
attractions in 2015: Springfield, an immersive area
opening surrounding The Simpsons Ride, and Fast
& Furious Supercharged, a thrill ride opening in sum-
mer based on the film series.
Disneyland opens Frozen Fun in January in Ana-
heim, California, with a sing-along, Olaf's Snow Fest,
and meet-and-greets with Anna and Elsa, among
other attractions. (MSN)
