Why we're booking a one-way ticket: The city is jam-packed with colorful sights, impressive technology, and you just might see Baymax out and about. Never pass up an opportunity to meet Baymax. —Jonathon Dornbush

Amenities: Grab some friends, a bottle or five of sake, and hit a karaoke bar or take a bullet train to nearby Kyoto, an oasis featuring Buddhist shrines amid nature's calm.
Why we're booking a one-way ticket: City chaos. Ancient temples. Peaceful ponds. What more convincing do you need? Lost in Translation's Tokyo is a mix of a bustling city, perfect for getting lost in, and quiet landscape, perfect for escaping to. And plus, maybe you'll run into Bill Murray there and re-create a real-life version of Lost in Translation, striking up a fast friendship and frolicking through the streets with him. We can dream, right? —Ariana Bacle

Why we're booking a one-way ticket: Who wouldn't want to escape from the big-city bustle to seek refuge in a pleasant place brimming with Midwestern modesty and stubborn weirdos?

8 of 19
As seen in: The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit saga

Also, screw Shelbyville. —Ray Rahman

Why we're booking a one-way ticket: Old-fashioned values and down-home charm, there's no way anyone could be truly frazzled in this one-stoplight town. Answer honestly: If you had the chance to sit on the porch drinkin' sweet tea with Aunt Bee every night, would you ever leave? —Lanford Beard

One-Eyed Willie's Hideaway
As seen in: The Goonies
Amenities: Well, there's treasure. Which is nice. But the adventure really starts when you descend down the sail with a knife, Captain Blood-style, and swan-dive off the starboard plank.
Why we're booking a one-way ticket: Despite being chased by a trio of criminals and facing a string of deadly booby-traps, once the Goonies escape on that awesome water slide leading to the pirate ship, the 12-year-old in all of us is in heaven. —Jeff Labrecque

As seen in: Avatar
Amenities: Pandora is a world that literally defies gravity. Be sure to check out its levitating Hallelujah Mountains and lush tropical rain forests.

Why we're booking a one-way ticket: U.S. News & World Report's annual college rankings have it all wrong.

Pop pop! —Ray Rahman

Amenities: The northern locale is host to verdant sloping roofs, small-town charm, and lax underage drinking laws.
Why we're booking a one-way ticket: You're sure to find a bosom friend in Anne Shirley's picturesque adopted home, where every gruff farmer has a secret heart of gold and the cocky showoffs grow up to be kind, sensitive dreamboats. Just watch out for typhoid fever. —Hillary Busis

Why we're booking a one-way ticket: Honestly, Westeros is a pretty rough place. But if you know the right people and are willing to do whatever it takes to survive, you can live like a king — or at least a feudal lord. (If you're coming from Essos, though, it couldn't hurt to bring some dragons with you.) —Hillary Busis
