The traffic does thicken closer to the heart of the city, but reactionary road rage may be easily pacified flipping between one of the two very legit classic rap stations, OG 97.9 and Boom 102.9.

It came as a pleasant surprise, then, to stumble across a clutch of excellent wine bars in Athens, all nestled between Monastiraki, Syntagma and Pláka – districts better known for tin jugs of house white than carefully stored and poured vintages.

Greece’s economic woes are well known, but the wine industry has – despite obstacles at every turn – bucked the trend. Best restaurants for Chinese New Year - Food. This Chinese New Year heralds the year of the fire monkey and London, as it does each year, will be painting the town red.

Madrid - Destinations

There were times when, to walk among the sleeping bags lining the corners of the Plaza Mayor, you’d have thought the city was headed for an Athens-style meltdown. But after those dismal few years, suddenly madrileños have a spate of much better news: Big Investment is back. Last year, greater Madrid was the inland Spanish region in which visitor numbers rose fastest; in fact, that 2014 figure of 10.2m tourists represents a historic record for the city.

For decades, the charm of Madrid was that of a place that felt unremittingly, and unrepentantly, Spanish. These days, cheap air travel and the massive presence of exiled young Spaniards in London, Berlin and New York conspire to bring global trends home to roost.

America’s “Forgotten” Vacation Destinations. Americans just don’t vacation like they used to. Cross country road trips, picturesque mountain resorts, and far off seaside towns have been replaced by “staycations,” transcontinental cruises, and brief weekend jaunts to the city.

The glory days of Griswold-ian journeys, Borscht belt summers, and month long excursions across the midwest are now behind us, and in their wake many of America’s once mighty vacation destinations, such as the five spots below, have begun to fade off into obscurity. Silver Springs, Florida. – Before Disney World swooped in and stole all the spotlight, Silver Springs was North Florida’s preeminent tourist destination.
