You can view the whimsical and dazzling glass sculptures of the artist Dale Chihuly all over the world: London, Singapore, New York, Boston, California. Even Nebraska.

Head for Iguazu Falls in Argentina. More in the mood for the beach? Ditch your shoes and set up shop in the Caribbean – after last year’s hurricanes, your favorite hotels and resorts are back and open for business. It’s all waiting for you. Let’s go!
