Southern california is the entertainment and beauty hub of the west coast. from the plush palm trees to the coastal views, there are endless ways to soak up the scenery. famed for its association with film and television, los angeles is home to the iconic hollywood sign and hollywood boulevard, featuring that iconic walk of fame. if you're looking for a little quiet time amid all the hustle and bustle, it's easy to find a pristine seat for relaxing by the water or catching a sunset — try passing through the atwater village, beverly grove, or culver city neighborhoods. to learn more about the charm of southern california, visit https://www.visitcalifornia.com/ @visitcalifornia

Near the famous “little hollywood” town of kanub — where parts of the lone ranger, death valley days, planet of the apes, and buffalo bill were all filmed — lies the incredible white pocket in the vermilion cliffs national monument, with smooth mounds and cliff edges that stand out from the stark white backdrop.

There’s no view of barcelona that quite compares to overlooking the city from the highest peak of mount tibidabo. at the mountain’s tallest point rests the temple of the sacred heart of jesus, a roman catholic church that was built in the late 19th century to prevent a protestant church and hotel-casino from being erected in its place.

@tomjauncey with his signature shoe selfie over christ the redeemer during an incredible sunrise flight with @vertical.rio. “it was our last day in rio, and @cory.s.martin, @matiasderada, and i anxiously woke up at 4 a.m. hoping our sunrise flight would happen. during the winter months, fog can descend on #riodejaneiro reducing the visibility and grounding all helicopters — we’d already had one flight canceled the day before! we got the call at 4:30 a.m. from our good friend @pedrofgonc that we were on. as the sun began to pop over the horizon, the fog descended on the city, creating the most ideal shooting conditions. the light then started to break across the sky as we circled christ the redeemer. it was the perfect moment to get my feet out and capture a unique perspective of this beautiful brazilian monument. sharing this moment with the #bdteam is one i'll never forget."

No matter the day, a stroll through meissen will be lined with an abundance of color. the german town is known not only for its porcelain but also as the home of one of the smallest cathedrals in all of europe. follow the meandering path to see for yourself how shared real estate on albrechtsburg castle hill led to meissen cathedral’s moniker.

Trinity bellwoods park sits in the heart of toronto’s historic queen west neighborhood. folklore has it that it’s good luck to spot a white squirrel during your walk through the park. a more-than-fitting consolation prize, should you not find a squirrel meandering about, is a mesmerizing view of the famed cn tower.

There are two stories as to how turks and caicos — a vast and diverse archipelago of 40 islands in the atlantic — got its name. 'turks' is believed to be derived from the indigenous turk’s head ‘fez’ cactus, a small stubby cactus with a top resembling a turkish fez, while 'caicos' comes from the lucayan term ‘caya hico’ meaning ‘string of islands.’ spend your time on the islands whale-watching in salt cay, scuba diving over the 14-mile barrier reef off providenciales’s shore, or romancing at grace bay beach.

Whether scuba diving into lake plansee or canoeing on its crystal clear waters, the lake pulls you into a romantic of austrian landscapes. a quick peek over the side of your canoe quickly showcases why the lake’s water quality is award-winning — everything from rainbow trout to whitefish visibly swim below the surface. a more profound appreciation for what is the second largest lake in tyrol settles in once you learn that it's is also used to generate electricity.

Smooth rocks and deep blue waters will surround you when meandering through this horseshoe-shaped greek island. built around a volcanic caldera and known as the birthplace of the louvre’s "venus de milo" statue, milos should be more than a pitstop on anyone’s grecian adventure.
