Out of Town: Travel Inspirations
Every Person in New York


Mussels
Fore Street in Portland, Maine.




Buddha
The Leshan Giant Buddha is the largest stone Buddha in the world. Near Chengdu, China.




Classical Music
Vermont + chamber music = Marlboro in Marlboro, Vermont.




Mini Golf
Lincolnshire, Illinois is home to the beloved links of Par-King.




Museum
I. M. Pei's design for the Miho Museum near Shigaraki, Japan, is itself a work of art.




Rocks

Artichokes
Sora Margherita is the hole-in-the-wall you want for carciofi alla Giudia in Rome's Trastevere neighborhood.




Bookstore

Gastropub
Yes, there are plenty of trouble spots in the world but we worry more about the Canadians than anyone else. They're sneaky. Did they invent the gastropub? Nope, that would be the Brits. But Maison Publique in Montreal is cultural appropriation at its most delicious.




Bamboo
And while we're at cross-purposes, there's La Bambouseraie in Cévennes, France.




Mid-Century Modern
Littleton, New Hampshire is the home to Just L Modern Antiques, brimming with delights for the collector.




Pinball
Get your game on at the Silverball Museum in Asbury Park.




Cave
You'll be down with the Postojna Cave in Slovenia, nearly 80,000 feet long, 377 feet deep.




Toilets
There are so many reasons to visit Buenos Aires, but here's one you may not have considered: inside the gorgeous Palacio de Aguas Corrientes, an ode to toilets and other plumbing miracles.




Cable Car
Getting there is half the fun when it's the cable car to the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town.




Diamonds
OK, not real diamonds. But it's nice to dream. Put a ring on it at Diamond Beach, Iceland.




Crabs
Prepare to get messy at Cantler's in Annapolis.




Gardens
The Villa Ephrussi gardens on the Côte d'Azur takes manicuring to a whole new level.




Mermaids
Weeki Wachee in Spring Hill, Florida, never fails to make a splash.




Curiosity Shop
Soigneé natural history in Paris at Deyrolle.




Grotto
Eating at The Grotto on Thailand's Phranang Beach, you won't care if the conversation's sparkling or not.




Thousands of gates comprise Fushimi Inari-taisha, the unforgettable shrine in Kyoto.
