  • Covent Garden

    London
    Outdoor Activity / Shopping Area
    Covent Garden - Outdoor Activity | Shopping Area in London.
    Mar 1, 2013 Shop, Eat, Explore, and Be Entertained "Covent Garden should be a staple in your London itinerary if you are visiting for more than three days. Yes, it is a tourist attraction, so the crowds can be overwhelming at times, but it's free, casual, and a people-watching paradise. Spend as much or as little time here as you desire. Walk through the open-air market, gather around for a street performance, or grab a seat for a quick snack or lunch. There is shopping for everyone: toy stores, boutiques, specialty shops, London/British paraphernalia galore. Most of the vendors and shop owners are friendly; ask them for local recommendations for bars, restaurants, and more. A great place to stop by and explore before moving on to other London attractions. " hide

  • Lido Beach

    Venice
    Beach / Outdoor Activity
    Lido Beach - Beach | Outdoor Activity in Venice.
    Mar 1, 2013 The Beach: Venetian Style "After checking out the art museums, walking among all the canals, and stuffing yourself with gelato, you will be ready to expand your exploration beyond the city of Venice and travel to the surrounding islands. The water taxis (Vaporettos) are the easy, efficient, and cheap way of traveling from place to place. I didn't stay in Lido, but it was a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle (or the Italian version of it) and tourist crowds of Venice, to walk along the (free!) beach, relax, and soak up the sun. Most of the beach is privately owned, but I encourage you to seek out the public areas. No need to pay for access to the sand and the surf in my opinion, unless you desperately need to rent a cabana. So schedule in a day of relaxation on Lido's beach; pack a towel and some refreshments and take a dip in the Adriatic Sea. " hide

  • The Apartment

    Chicago
    Bar / Club
    The Apartment - Bar | Club in Chicago.
    Feb 25, 2013 Pre-Game at the Apartment "While you will probably want some drinks in you beforehand, the Apartment is a convenient place to get your night started. Never pay a cover charge. The line moves quickly to get in (and they are courteous enough to provide heat lamps -- bonus!). The Apartment is just as comfortable as your place, so skip the drinking games and come out and dance to the DJ's Top 40 mix. It's easy to navigate around the oval bar, but you may have to wait a little longer than necessary to get a drink with only three bartenders serving a packed bar. Plenty of seating is available if that's your go-to spot, but honestly, you should be dancing. And if you decide the Apartment isn't your scene, its convenient location on Lincoln allows you to bar-hop without wasting your night. I would give it 2.5 stars if that was an option. You will definitely have a decent time, and it's verging on being one of your regular spots. " hide
