Plan Your Escape to Arizona

Indulgent escapes are made even more enjoyable by fast, easy access — and that’s what Arizona offers. Quick, non-stop and direct flights to one of two international airports put all the luxury of The Grand Canyon State within easy reach.

Not into “roughing it?” Not a problem. Arizona is home to the largest concentration of luxury 4- and 5-star resorts in North America, and if you’re headed to Scottsdale, The Phoenician can’t be beat. In addition to palatial guestrooms and suites, this AAA Five Diamond resort features award-winning dining, a world-class spa, championship golf and more.

Just minutes down Camelback Road you’ll find the city’s premier upscale shopping destination, Scottsdale Fashion Square, with high-end shops such as Balenciaga, Breitling, Cartier, Christian Louboutin and Gucci. Plus, an extensive renovation will soon add marquee names such as Peloton, Tesla and Caesars Republic.

Surely with all that shopping you’ll work up an appetite, so head just up Scottsdale Road to Fat Ox, where Chef Matt Carter puts his modern spin on regional Italian classics. Here, most dishes only have between four and eight ingredients, making for joyously simple creations. Pair the food with rare wines, masterful cocktails and exotic cheeses for an amazingly authentic dining experience.

It’s no secret Scottsdale is a golfer’s paradise — with so many gorgeous courses in the area, choosing could be difficult. But if championship caliber is your style of play, look no further than TPC Scottsdale, which offers two legendary championship courses both open to the public: The Stadium Course and the Champions Course. The Club is also the permanent home of the “Greatest Show on Grass,” the WM Phoenix Open. It was named One of America’s Best Courses by Golfweek Magazine, one of the Top 50 Golf Resort Destinations in the World by Condé Nast Traveler, and is consistently named one of the top courses in Arizona.

For history and architecture buffs, Scottsdale is home to one of the country’s crown jewels, Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s beloved winter home and desert laboratory. Built and maintained almost entirely by Wright and his apprentices, Taliesin West was among the famed architect’s most personal creations. This UNESCO World Heritage site and National Historic Landmark offers daily audio and guided tours.

Viking Discovers Penguin Discovery

Cruising is always an adventure and, in addition to uncovering new culinary traditions and cultural experiences, lucky guests sometimes get to witness actual scientific discoveries. During a recent sailing of Viking Octantis to the waters of the Antarctic, Viking’s onboard expedition team participated in the discovery of a new colony of chinstrap penguins, identifiable partly by a distinctive facial marking that resembles a strap running beneath their beak from one side of their face to the other, as though holding down a hat.

Croatia Makes it Easy to Turn a Business Trip into a Family Vacation

Croatian tourism took off in the early 2000s and shows no signs of slowing, thanks in part to its starring role as the unmistakable setting in popular franchises like Game of Thrones and Below Deck Mediterranean. But there’s good reason both Hollywood and tourists keep returning to this small Balkan nation along the Adriatic Sea. Up and down the coast, it’s truly as stunning as it appears on camera, and moments here consistently feel elaborately staged ... but they’re not.
