Yes, the super bloom of wildflowers in California is too pretty for words—as are the swarms of butterflies they’ve attracted this year. But Californians (and New Yorkers, and everyone else), hear me out: The reason to visit Texas is not Austin. It’s not SXSW. It’s not even Marfa, with its fake Prada store and its art colony-on-the-moon vibe. It’s the bluebonnets, which, like clockwork each March, blanket the Texas roadsides from Big Bend over to Brownsville all the way to Beaumont.
In the past few years, Cape Town’s quickly become the wellness capital of South Africa, making it a coastal playground for healthy travel.The local currency might be the rand, but the social one is definitely being up for an adventure.
From its dry desert river canyons to its snow-capped peaks, there’s a lot to love about Colorado. But if you’re looking for a place to start, bypass its capital (sorry, Denver) and head straight to Boulder. There’s a reason the town tucked into the f...
Raise your hand if you’re sick of winter. Recent months have brought about some of the coldest temperatures on record, not to mention devastating ice storms and ferocious blizzards. And unfortunately the snow doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. But there is a light at the end of this winter tunnel. As much of the country shovels the driveway, Southern California is gearing up for the super bloom.
If Austin is Texas’ epicenter of cool, think of Dallas as its more-glam neighbor to the north. As in: blowouts over beachy waves and sculpted physiques over super-chill savasanas. And, in a word: Neiman’s. But the football- and fitness-crazy city ha...

When you think of an ordinary volcano, you probably picture fiery red lava spewing from a collapsed mountaintop or perhaps oozing down the slope with a dull glow. Far from ordinary is Indonesia’s Kawah Ijen volcano, which awes with a stunningly blue illumination. Kawah Ijen displays one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural wonders, but you need to hike the crater before dawn to see it.
Canada is generally a really pleasant and low-stress place to visit—everyone is so nice!—but its charming citizens are hardly the only draw. The country is also packed with awe-inspiring natural features perfect for backpack-toting hiker babes, cuddly polar bears (okay, maybe not so cuddly…but still), and as much maple syrup as your wanderlusting heart could desire.
Travel may well be good for your health, but it’s not so great for the environment. In fact, a recent study showed that tourism accounts for nearly 10 percent of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions. But before you despair becoming a hypocrite who petitions lawmakers to take climate change seriously while simultaneously planning as many trips as possible for 2019, take comfort in knowing that even environmentalists travel—they simply do so mindfully.

Rather than lusting over dreamy photos of the steamy natural pools; pack your bags and get to one. Plenty of geothermal hot-spring destinations are just a quick flight—or, even better, drive—away. Plus, as you take in the volcanic backdrops and rainf...
