325 S Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32801, USA
One of Orlando's swankiest hotels, the Grand Bohemian boasts more than just a place to lay your head at night. It's one of my favorite places to soak up the Florida sunshine all while enjoying views of the downtown skyline. Enjoy the lap pool...

Confusion. I think that’s what some people feel when they first lay eyes on the Montelucia Resort & Spa. With its ornate entryways and floral squares, the resort looks more like a charming European village than an Arizona resort. But, you know...

Giudecca, 810, 30133 Venezia VE, Italy
In Venice, it's hard to get a moment alone with a loved one or even with the city herself. The crowds of tourists reaching over your shoulder to snap shaky photos of the aged Rialto can become a nuisance as you try to realize the historical...

209 Bourbon St, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA
Lunch is the time to visit Galatoire's—a sight and scene for all senses. Well-respected locals come to dine and celebrate, and the joie de vivre (especially on a Friday afternoon) is unparalleled.

2800 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70115, USA
We took the St Charles streetcar to New Orleans' famous Garden District, intending to head to the historic Commander's Palace for lunch -- they're well-known for offering 25-cent martinis with your entree. But then we discovered an even better...

813 Bienville St, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA
Connected to Arnaud's, this cozy bar place makes you feel like you're transported back in time. It's a great place for conversation, even if just with the bartender. They take their cocktails seriously and you MUST try the souffle potatoes. Yum!

813 Bienville St, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA
Arnaud's Restaurant has been serving classic Creole cuisine in the French Quarter since 1918. After having a craft cocktail in their French 75 vintage lounge (once an all-gentleman's club when it first opened), head into their main dining room to...

Chef Tory McPhail was recently named James Beard's Best Chef South and his forward-looking take on Creole classics keeps this New Orleans institution, which has launched the careers of the likes of Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse, current....

1080 Uptown Park Blvd, Houston, TX 77056, USA
Opened in 2006, this hotel brings a touch of Tuscany to Texas. When Houston developer Giorgio Borlenghi envisioned Hotel Granduca, he was inspired by the life of Adalberto Malatesta, the Granduca of Monfallito—its namesake. Referred to as...

220 Main St, Houston, TX 77002, USA
Built in 1911 as a bank, this 12-story building was one of the nation’s first concrete and steel skyscrapers. In 2004, the building was renovated into Hotel Icon. It's located in the downtown business district, which gives you convenient...

5701 Main St, Houston, TX 77005, USA
Hotel ZaZa is literally across the street from the Museum of Fine Arts and a very short drive from other galleries in Houston's Museum District. It's also near Hermann Park, a massive park that houses the zoo, a Japanese garden, and a lovely...

1117 Prairie St, Houston, TX 77002, USA
It may be one of the oldest running hotel in the city, but the Sam Houston has a luxury boutique vibe that defies its age. The historic downtown treasure opened in 1924 and closed in 1973, then reopened in 2002 as the Alden Houston and earned a...

From the bi-level dome car, Gold-Leaf Service passengers take in panoramic views of snowcapped mountains, Fraser Canyon, and the Thompson River as they make their way from Vancouver, B.C., to Banff, Alberta. The three-night excursion includes...

Whisky connoisseurs can sample more than 40 single-malt scotches as their vintage carriages slice through the Scottish Highlands. The veranda of the Edwardian-style observation car offers a relaxing retreat after such activities as private...

Bell Rock, Arizona 86351, USA
I'll admit, I came here not so much for the scenery but for the alleged 'energy vortex' that locals in Sedona, AZ claim is present in nearby Bell Rock. After standing in place for a few moments and trying to channel something that I was hoping was...

3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA
There are myriad eye-catching details that make up Sin City, but the rainbow of blown glass flowers adorning the ceiling of the Bellagio lobby was my favorite.
