Day 3

Spend part of the day in Cape Canaveral. Start off at the Kennedy Space Center. Learn more about NASA and get a chance to meet and chat with veteran astronauts. Wander around and enjoy up-close views of NASA memorabilia and the Space Shuttle Atlantis. Take an epic journey into space with immersive films and experiences. Spend some time at Port Canaveral and watch the cruise ships come and go. Next head back to Cocoa Beach to go to the world’s largest surf shop, Ron Jon’s. Whether you are a surfer or not, you can’t miss this shop; make sure to grab some merchandise as a souvenir.

Day 4

Get an early start to the day with some fishing; whether you brought your own gear or not, head to the pier for the best fishing spots. The pier extends 800 feet over the Atlantic Ocean, offering many different types of fish to catch. The fishing pier opens at 6 a.m., so make sure to get there earlier to get a good spot. After a morning of fishing head to Dog Sea for a quick bite to eat before leaving for the airport.

Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
