Tel Aviv, Israel
Dubbed the “new Dubai for avid travelers,” Tel Aviv is the place to be right now. This cosmopolitan city has so much to offer! Take advantage of its seaside locale with a surf lesson. Foodies will love sampling hummus and falafel at local eateries. Craving some culture? Check out the 1930’s Bauhaus buildings and famed museums, like Eretz Israel Museum and Beit Hatfutsot. After an action-packed day and night, rest your head at The Rothschild 71 or Cucu Hotel.
Morocco is trending…and Casablanca is certainly no exception. From the bustling markets and Moorish architecture to the relaxing hammams (traditional bathhouses) and aromatic cuisine, this vibrant port city is a feast for the senses. Contemporary accommodations, like Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca and Gray Boutique Hotel & Spa Casablanca, as well as new construction projects, such as Parc de la Ligue Arabe and Grande Theatre de Casablanca, are piquing the interest of modern travelers. If you have time to see more of this magical country, Chefchaouen (aka the “blue city”) should be a stop on your trip. These are the best road trips to take if you want to see stunning fall foliage.
Looking for a warm-weather escape? Mazatlan, on Mexico’s Pacific coast, combines sunny skies, sandy beaches, and old-school character. Centro Histórico (Old Mazatlán) is lined with 19th-century buildings, historic sites, such as Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and Teatro Angela Peralta, and boutique hotels, like Casa Lucila and Casa de Leyendas. While you’re there, be sure to sample tacos de cabeza and take a stroll along the Malecón (boardwalk).
