I'd consider jumping into the future ( the year 3000).
Most people are likely to want go backwards in time because they are pesimistic about the future.
However history has taught us the future generally brings more good than bad overall. There is progress made with every generation.
We're living longer, finding better medicines,creating inventions which no one dreamed were possible just 100 years ago.
By the year 3000 we may be traveling back and forth to other planets, living in peace, and possibly evolved to using a higher percentage of our minds.
The past may have been a blast but the unknown is where it's at! A positive person always looks forward!
