Narchyang, Nepal

In the mountain village of Koto, Nepal, there is a path that branches off the legendary 150-mile Annapurna Circuit and passes—ceremoniously, tantalizingly—through a large stone gate. This trail is off-limits, a nearby sign reads, unless you have a...

1345 Division St #102, Detroit, MI 48207, USA
The Eastern Market neighborhood is expanding to become a haven for the arts as much as for those seeking fresh, locally sourced food. Signal Return is a product of that expansion. Open every Saturday (the main market day) as well as Thursdays and...

Campus Martius Park changes with the seasons. Situated in the heart of downtown, it is reminiscent of New York City's Bryant Park. In summertime, a beach welcomes children of all ages who desire a little sand between their toes. A beach bar, green...

5020 John R St, Detroit, MI 48202, USA
The Michigan Science Center is one of Detroit's most kid-friendly museums. Located very close to downtown, right next to the Detroit Institute of Art, it has hosted traveling exhibits like Bodies but the permanent exhibits are more than enough of...

200 Grand River Ave, Detroit, MI 48226, USA
Efficiently tucked into one of the smallest buildings I've ever been in, at the intersection of Grand River and Griswold in Detroit, lies Urban Bean Co. I do not know if their midcentury modern design and decor is original (though I tried to find...

The Cloisters, a museum devoted to medieval art and architecture, is a delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of NYC. This tranquil treasure is definitely worth a half day (or more) trip on your next visit. A branch of the Metropolitan...

I suppose the Algonquin is an obvious pilgrimage for anyone with a fascination for the 1920s, but it certainly didn't disappoint. The ambience conjured everything I imagined of a legendary literary bolthole and more importantly my White Russian...

Whoever invented the living history museum deserves, well, a place in a living history museum. Instead of reading dry text, visitors get to meet an early 20th-century immigrant, hang out in her shoebox apartment, and join a family at its Sabbath...

First constructed as a carriage house in 1799, then converted into a hotel in 1826, the Mount Vernon Hotel is not only one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan but also a fascinating slice of what life was like in NY C back when this part of the...

The Leopard at des Artistes is more than a restaurant. It's an Upper West Side landmark, a Manhattan treasure and genuine New York classic. It was once Cafe des Artistes, a restaurant where luminaries from the worlds of art, politics and...
