Save Place
Cora-Berliner-Straße 1, 10117 Berlin, Germany
Occupying a prominent space between Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz, this memorial (also known as the Holocaust-Mahnmal, or Holocaust Memorial) has almost 3,000 gray oblong pillars (stelae), arranged at varying heights, that form a kind of...
Save Place
Römerberg, 60329 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
There’s no better way to experience the festivities of the holidays than Christmas markets (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Germany, and Frankfurt's is particularly beautiful. The markets take place usually in the center of the town, and you'll find all...
Save Place
Neumarkt, 01067 Dresden, Germany
A recently rebuilt Lutheran church that was destroyed in the fire bomb raid that devastated this city in February, 1945. Original pieces of the church were used in its reconstruction and are a darker color.

Velleron, France
Early summer in Provence--cicadas in the trees and lines of lavender stretching to the horizon under a Van Gogh sky...Clichéd it might be, but the setting is heady...

Mt Bromo, Area Gn. Bromo, Podokoyo, Tosari, Pasuruan, East Java, Indonesia
Bright and early, just before the sun comes up over Mount Bromo, Mount Semeru and Mount Batok, with ample rolling fog and an epic eruption for good measure. We climbed Mount Penanjakan in our Toyota 4x4 pre-dawn in the headlights of some 1,200...

301 Railway Ave, Seward, AK 99664, USA
Perfect for kids, this state-of-the-art marine science aquarium was built with the reparation funds from the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Make sure to take time for a behind-the-scenes tour, where you’ll learn more about their impressive wildlife...
Save Place
Turnagain Arm, Alaska, USA
The first hour-plus drive down the Kenai Peninsula south of Anchorage is perhaps the most dramatic. Riding along the Cook Inlet, the mountain scenery is fantastic. In the late summer, there’s a chance of spotting some of the 350 or so beluga...

3875 Old International Airport Rd, Anchorage, AK 99502, USA
Whether it’s the idea of spending quality time together, saving money on flights, visiting somewhere special, or a combination of all three, there’s something curiously romantic about loading up the car and hitting the highway as a family. For...
Save Place
Kenai Peninsula Borough, AK, USA
It was the experience I was most looking forward to when planning my trip and it did not disappoint! On a beautiful Alaskan summer day we took a 30 minute sea plane ride on the Kenai peninsula out to a little john boat where we took another 15...
Save Place
Alaska, USA
You can't help but be awed by what a glacier and a few thousand years can do to a landscape. As we hiked closer to Exit Glacier I become aware of the enormity of this sheet of ice that has carved out the valley and the river behind us. Signposts...

162 W Pioneer Ave, Homer, AK 99603, USA
$$$$
Cafe Cups in Homer, Alaska, is not to be missed. Aside from being so cutesy it's actually cute, the food is delicious. Be sure and make a reservation, especially for dinner. It's quite a popular place.
Save Place
Montana, USA
We stopped to take in the view before wandering through the Trail of the Cedars in Glacier. This river was so quiet and peaceful below one of the many beautiful mountains in the park and during a busy family trip it was a moment of calm.
Save Place
Orcas Island, Washington, USA
At the strong recommendation of people familiar with the region, we were told the San Juan Islands are a "must." It didn’t take long to see why. Just the 75-minute ferry ride from Anacortes (90 minutes north of Seattle) to Orcas Island was one of...
Save Place
Maine, USA
A certain amount of dedication is required to see the sunrise. You have to commit to getting up early, then fight the urge to hit snooze when "go time" comes around. You drag yourself out of bed and to the prime sunrise watching spot - in this...
Save Place
Key Largo, FL 33037, USA
The sand was soft. The sky was azure blue. The birds were singing. The air was balmy. I could smell the the salt in the sea at the beach. I felt lighthearted and relaxed. I was in Key Largo, the Florida Keys. The Keys are a vacation away from the...
Save Place
CA-1, California, USA
South of Carmel all the way to Hearst Castle is arguably one of the most beautiful parts of America to drive through. On one side the Pacific, on the other the hills and mountains. And when there is fog, things get more interesting.
Save Place
Short Sand Beach, Oregon 97102, USA
California is usually the state most associated with sun-drenched beaches. But in my opinion, the Oregon coastline trumps the Golden State in terms of sheer beauty. Located 10 miles south of the more popular Cannon Beach is Oswald West State Park,...
Save Place
96th St, Florida 33154, USA
The beaches in Miami are beautiful. At 96th and Collins, what appears to be a street between office buildings and high-rise condos leads to white sand and turquoise water, good for shelling. In the morning and up until around 2pm during the week,...

Kāʻanapali Beachwalk, Lahaina, HI 96761, USA
From the moment you first pop up on a surfboard—and realize you're standing on a wave—it's immediately apparent why the sport of surfing is such an addictive and popular pursuit. In Ancient Hawaii, surfing was reserved exclusively for royalty and...
Save Place
Montauk, NY 11954, USA
About three hours east of the hectic, bustling craziness of New York City lies one of the most tranquil enclaves anywhere—Montauk. Okay, so it's gotten a bit hipstery in the past few years, but there are spots that still remain unspoiled and...
Save Place
Kleintuin Rd, Simon's Town, Cape Town, 7995, South Africa
If you're spending time exploring the Cape Peninsula area of South Africa, a visit with the penguin colony at Boulders Beach is a must. They made Boulders their home (wise penguins) in 1982 and you'll be surprised by how residential the setting...

Unnamed Road, Santorini 847 00, Greece
Santorini has long been called the diamond of the Greek Islands. Its white sculptured villages are nestled atop steep volcanic cliffs that fall sharply to the deep blue Aegean Sea. This is paradise for shoppers, photographers, artists, or anyone...

Anse Source d'Argent, Seychelles
If you're looking for an unspoiled and exotic beach vacation destination, La Digue is one of the most popular islands in the Seychelles, and Anse Source d'Argent is the reason why. This amazingly beautiful beach features giant boulders on its...

Though first-time visitors to Thailand will often flock to the overdeveloped town of Phuket, speak to the locals and they’ll all recommend a visit to Krabi province instead. Not only is Krabi home to the beautiful town of Ao Nang, just south is...

Cantón de Aguirre, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
A stunning national park on the Pacific coast, Manuel Antonio has it all: nonstop beautiful beaches, lush tropical rain forest, and oh, the wildlife and flowers, everywhere you look. Monkeys abound on these beaches, and they are not timid around...
Save Place
This beautiful one-mile stretch was donated to the people of the Virgin Islands by Arthur Fairchild, a benefactor of the islands who'd made his fortune on Wall Street before retiring here. The usually calm waters of the heart-shaped bay make the...

Mo'orea, French Polynesia
Taking a plunge from our overwater bungalow was the start to yet another perfect day. We had a great time staying at the Intercontinental Moorea with our kids. The water is spectacular for swimming, snorkeling and all kinds of watersports. We all...
