The Trazees

Aug 1, 2015
2015

Everything travel, from A to Z. That’s the motto of Trazee Travel, the Web publication for the uber-millennial created by the team behind Global Traveler. Launched in September 2014, the website, updated several times daily, covers a wide range of subjects of interest to travelers ages 18–35. From products and tips to trends and reviews, trazeetravel.com also focuses on destination weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties and honeymoons. The Under $100 section tells a traveler how to do a destination for less than $100 a day, while the Top 5 category brings the five best of any one thing in any city — think Top 5 Free Museums in Washington, D.C. — but so much more. As promised, a little of bit of everything; there are interviews, quizzes and polls, too.

And that’s not all — our Community section allows our readers to share their own travel stories and photos. Join today at trazeetravel.com.

Trazeetravel.com is proud to present The Trazees 2015, the inaugural winners of our annual awards. Congratulations to the following trendsetters!

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
