We are getting married in June and neither of us have been to Italy. Our loose idea is to spend ten days traveling through Tuscany, Florence, Rome, and the Amalfi Coast. How do you suggest we do it?
TAHAA, French Polynesia – We made out canoes in the distance as party boats jockeyed for position. Things got rowdy, but the canoe teams forged on.
FLORENCE – What can you learn from a third-generation artisan gelato maker in Italy?
SPOLETO, Italy – Fresh air! Exercise! Not that we need justifacation for carbo-loading, but still.
PORTLAND, Maine – A late summer/fall trip to New England's (literal) top state delivers a gorgeous coastline, incredible dining scene, and wholesome outdoorsy fun with smaller crowds and low prices.
LONG ISLAND, New York – Get a tour through a telescope, get lost in the cornfields, get drunk at the vineyards, and do it again.
BIG SUR, California – The luxury tree house at Post Ranch Inn blurs the lines between nature and modernity. For big kids only.
RED HOOK, Brooklyn – Think of the seaside neighborhood as the quirky, cool, black sheep in the Brooklyn family.
Consider this your eight-points plan for a weekend upstate.
VIEQUES – Send me to an unspoiled island with beaches and blue water and nothing to do for days on end, and I will spend my vacation trying to prove otherwise.
