San Diego's Hottest Suite Will Make You Feel Like a Rock Star

It’s pretty easy to consider never leaving your room when staying in the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego’s Multi-Platinum Suite. With 1,070 square feet of space, you might find yourself skipping a tour of the city to relax in your BainUltra air jet tub or sip on Champagne on one of two cozy L-shaped couches in the room. Had it not been my birthday weekend, you may have found me Neflix and chilling my whole stay instead of hitting the town. It’s that impressive.

The 7 All-Time Best Beaches in the World

Every year, travel sites all over release a list of the world’s best beaches. As we took a look at these selections and compared them with our own, we noticed that many of the same sandy locales show up time and again. In an effort to truly identify the best of the best, we looked at travel authorities from TripAdvisor to Condé Nast Traveler, on top of an array of other publications, to determine the clear cut winners who were consistently mentioned.

What it Takes to Deliver Fine Dining at 30,000 Feet

Business and First Class cabins are undoubtedly the best way to travel well. As the top airlines get more creative with their premium offerings—spacious lounges, full showers, Champagne bars, private butlers—one thing remains the same: the dining is always top notch. From caviar and lobster to local delicacies and health-conscious options, the chefs behind airline fare are perfecting the art of fine dining 30,000 feet in the sky.

Interview: Alberta Cross Talks Going Solo & His Road Back to the Basics of Good Music

Before Petter Ericson Stakee stepped inside an abandoned church-turned-studio in upstate New York to record a solo album, he was touring the country on the heels of his former band’s 2012 studio-produced album. Together with bassist Terry Wolfers, the duo called Alberta Cross, had claimed their stake in the music community with features on TV shows such as Sons of Anarchy and Californication.

Exploring Petra: A First-Timer's Guide to Visiting One of the 7 Wonders of the World

Hidden away among pink-hued cliffs in the valley of Wadi Musa is the forgotten city of Petra. In its heyday, the enigmatic destination was home to 30,000 people and the center of a kingdom four times the size of Jordan. The once-nomadic tribe of Nabataeans who called Petra home gained their wealth through the frankincense and myrrh trade as well as by charging merchants for safe passage.

5 Luxury Nudist, Swingers & Exhibitionist Cruises to Explore Your Sexy Side

Nudist travel is on the rise. While Europeans have always been more comfortable with their au naturel bodies, Americans have been much slower at adopting adult vacations as an acceptable form of travel. But have no fear, we’re finally catching up to our international neighbors. While this isn’t a new concept, it’s a growing niche that is “reaping about $400 million in yearly profits,” according to USA Today. We even have a catchy new phrase for it: nacations (naked vacations).

Vietnam On the Rise Among Tourists, A Look at the Southeast Asian Country

At Virtuoso Travel Week Conference in Las Vegas in 2015, we learned about the “Hot 10,” countries which have seen the biggest jump in year-over-year bookings. Southeast Asia, as a whole, is an emerging hotspot for travelers, and Vietnam tops the list as having seen a rise in tourism (up 270 percent from last year). This is in part due to more visitors seeking experiential travel rather than just a place to lay on the beach all day long.

One of the worst things about flying is having to sit at an airport during a layover or flight delay. Thankfully, over the past few years, airports have been really stepping up their games by making our in-between stops more comfortable and even fun. Amenities like on-site spas, fitness classes, in-house hotels and museums are now par for the course in some of the world’s most-visited airports. One trend that’s also starting to takeoff (pun definitely intended) is the addition of renowned chefs

The Once-Forgotten and Beautiful Country of Zimbabwe is Making a Slow Comeback

Zimbabwe has been in the news a lot recently, but not in terms of travel. By now, most know that the landlocked country was the scene of Cecil the Lion’s death. But if you've really been paying attention, you know that it has also been making headlines for being the scene of one of the worst cases of inflation in modern history. Because of this, where tourism is concerned, Zimbabwe has been mostly off of mainstream travel radars.
