Miniloc Island, Bayan ng El Nido, 5313 Palawan, Philippines
Imagine hundreds of tiny islands, coral reefs, limestone cliffs, turquoise water, white sand beaches, and hidden lagoons. Basically imagine a tropical paradise and you have the Bacuit Archipelago surrounding El Nido on the island of Palawan in the...
5926 Lincoln St, Detroit, MI 48208, USA
Down a side street not far from MoTown Museum and the Wayne State University's main campus is one of the city's hidden art gems. Lincoln Street Art Park is an evolving community collaboration between local artists, the Michigan Council for Arts...
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...
800 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48226, USA
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 E 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...
99 Margaret Corbin Dr, New York, NY 10040, USA
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...
59 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036, USA
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...
New York, NY, USA
The Statue of Liberty may be the most iconic sight that comes to mind when one thinks of the history of immigrants in New York, but not far from it in the harbor is another important landmark—Ellis Island. Until the Supreme Court ruled in...
103 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002, USA
These days, wandering the Lower East Side (the area between the Bowery and the East River, with Houston Street marking its northern border and Canal Street its southern one), it can feel impossible to recall that this neighborhood was once among...
421 E 61st St, New York, NY 10065, USA
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...
1 W 67th St, New York, NY 10023, USA
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...
