The birthplace of democracy, Western civilization and souvlaki, Athens has long been a city brimming with possibility.
It makes sense, then, that it will soon be home to a sustainable new mega-city billed as the largest urban regeneration project in European history. Located just 20 minutes from the ruins of the Acropolis on the site of the city’s former airport and Olympic stadium complex, the Ellinikon will not only breathe new life into Greece’s capital, but will serve as a destination in ...
Look out New York, California’s coming for you. The preferred health and wellness retreat to the stars, The Ranch Malibu just announced plans to open a new resort 45-minutes outside of New York City next summer. Located along the border of Sloatsburg and Tuxedo Park, The Ranch Hudson Valley will mark the third location for the luxury health and wellness retreat.
Celebrating its 500th anniversary, the city is booming, so it helps to know where to stay and what to do.
When it comes to the subject of clapping on an airplane, there are two camps. There are the clappers: those who clap the moment the plane goes wheels down on the tarmac. And there are the non-clappers, who sit in silent judgement of those clapping around them.
Whatever camp you’re in, you can pretty much guarantee that people will be clapping upon touchdown at Luis Muñoz Marín Internation...
Because in case you haven’t heard, fancy fish eggs are all the rage right now.
There are few experiences that beat staying in a great five-star hotel. Sure, a once in a lifetime luxury cruise to Antarctica or watching the sunrise over Ankor Wat in Cambodia are pretty tough to beat. But when a hotel goes above and beyond, it can be unforgettable. And when the hotel is doing something so impactful it’s actively making the world a better place, well, that’s pretty great too.
There’s no doubt that we still have a way to go when it comes to traveling sustainably...
Imagine a world where one day every month was a national holiday dedicated to making your neighborhood a cleaner place. In Rwanda, on the last Saturday of each month, they do just that. During Umuganda—the Kinyarwanda word for “coming together in common purpose”—people from around the country of a thousand hills pick up trash, repair roads, and generally help each other to make the world sparkly and just a little more beautiful.
While that’s just one example of a community actually caring a...

For centuries, the Sonoran Desert has been considered a place to get your spiritual healing on. This desert is bigger than the entire state of Oregon at more than 100,000 square miles. In fact, the Sonoran spans almost the entire southern half of Arizona from Scottsdale and Sedona right down to Mexico and into parts of southern California.
Driving through the windswept sands and looming mountain ranges peppered in a sea of towering saguar...
I went to a Dolly Parton-themed restaurant that's a pink palace of glitz, glam, and Champagne Jell-O shots — and I can't wait to go back
On a cross-country road trip, I went to White Limozeen, a Dolly Parton-themed restaurant in Nashville. I chose it in lieu of a stop at Dollywood, which was closed due to COVID-19 during my visit. Dolly fans shouldn't miss the pink patio and Champagne Jell-O shots that honor the queen of country music. In the immortal words of Dolly, "Everybody has their own journey, their own way of doing things. Who am I to judge," and it's a saying I've always admired.
In the exclusive world of luxury wellness retreats, no place has captured Hollywood’s collective consciousness quite like the Ranch Malibu.
Rebel, Selma, Mandy and Connie, among many others, have paid their dues here over the last 11 years. Located on 200 cell phone-free acres in Malibu, the place is best known for its signature “no options” boot-camp regimen and singular approach to healthy cuisine that includes nothing more than a 1,400 calorie-per-day diet—sans caffeine, dairy, soy and glu...
From the rooftop patio of Bar Julian, cargo ships, some the length of The Empire State Building, slowly chug their way along the Savannah River, where from the looks of things, they’ll be staying for the long haul.
Arguably one of the Savannah’s hippest, if not most scenic locales to be seen sipping on Georgia juleps these days, cargo isn’t the only thing calling on the port city’s shores these days.
Twelve stories below, on the contemporary ground floor of the recently opened Tho...
I drove cross-country and these were the 16 coolest places I stopped along the way, plus 3 spots I'd skip next time
Driving cross-country is an ambitious journey that always sounded a bit more romantic to me in theory than in practice. But when my partner convinced me to expand my horizons, we started planning with the Ralph Waldo Emerson adage "it's not the destination, it's the journey," as our guiding principle. I figured we might as well see as many cool and quirky things along the way as possible.
Here are the places we stopped that I would go to again and the places I would skip next time.
This Exclusive Cruise Will Take You to Antarctica with the McEnroes for the Continent’s First Tennis Match
Traveling to far-flung destinations is the name of the game for professional athletes, and tennis Hall-of-Famer John McEnroe is no exception. But this winter, the legendary player—as well as his brother, Davis Cup champion and ESPN commentator Patrick McEnroe—are taking tennis to where it’s never gone before.
From February 22 to March 5, 2022, the McEnroe brothers will host the exclusive Antarctica Open voyage aboard the luxurious Atlas World Navigator. The 140 guests aboard the special chart...
Après-ski — whose literal translation from French means after-ski — has long been as a time-honored tradition in ski destinations around the world. Believed to have originated in the French Alps circa the 1950’s — today, to après (as those in the know are inclined to call it) is to indulge in a cultural pastime that’s as much an exper...
A cattle drive in Texas was one of the best stops I made on a cross-country road trip. I'd go out of my way to do it again.
On a cross-country trip, I stopped in Fort Worth to see the world's only twice-daily cattle drive.
The Texas town also has a year-round rodeo, a cowboy hall of fame, and historic stockyards.
Fort Worth's slogan is 'where the West begins.' I thought it felt like being in an old Western movie.
A subgenre of classical Westerns, I first learned about spaghetti Westerns in film school.
Broadly defined as low-budget and romanticized versions of the American southwest, these films were popular aroun...
