hbz-eclipse-index-1503093903

This August 21, Americans will experience the first total solar eclipse since 1979 to touch the lower 48. But unless you're in the path of totality, you'll only see a partial eclipse, an experience compared to standing next to the grill and only smelling the steak instead of tasting it for real. With that in mind, here are some of the best places to watch this phenomenal solar event as it makes its way from Oregon down to South Carolina.

Madras, Oregon

Flights To Greece Are So Insanely Cheap Right Now

landscape-1503001612-gettyimages-475124388
If you've ever dreamed of a) flying in one of Emirates super luxe airplanes or b) going to Greece, now's the time. Typically, a nonstop flight would set you back $1,000, but thanks to a special airfare sale, that price has dropped to less than $450. Of course, there a few caveats. Currently these fares are only available from Newark Airport to Athens, so if you live outside of the New York area you're out of luck. But if you are, you'll be able to fly to Athens for under $450 basically anytime between October 2017 and May 2018, including Thanksgiving but excluding Christmas and New Year's Eve. To find the cheapest fares, budget travel newsletter Scott's Cheap Flights recommends searching for your dates...

Melbourne Named World’s Most Livable City For Seventh Straight Year

landscape-1502893395-gettyimages-600795275
Every year, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranks the most livable cities in the world, and for the seventh time in a row Melbourne, Australia topped the list. Melbourne scored 97.5 out of 100 on the annual list, beating out Vienna (#2) and Vancouver (#3) for the top spot. Meanwhile, Australia's largest city, Sydney, didn't even crack the top 10 this year. Another notable absence on this list? Any city in the United States. So, what makes Melbourne so great? The Economist Intelligence Unit bases its rankings on stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. While foreign visitors won't necessarily benefit from the city's access to top-notch education or healthcare, Melbourne's excellent food scene, easy access to public transportation, world-class museums and beautiful parks makes...

5 Travel Destinations For Pastel Lovers

Less about the hotel and more about the hue.

When you’re trying to decide where to take your summer holidays, there are a number of factors that can quickly turn the idea of a last minute long weekend getaway in to a mammoth 13-hour flight across the Atlantic, in search of a destination that’s obscure enough for you to actually Geotag. Your final decision could be based on finding somewhere with that elusive combination of hedonism and culture (yes, even Ibiza has a contemporary art museum) or you could be on the hunt for somewhere that’s so overwhelmingly aesthetically pleasing that you’ll risk your entire data roaming allowance to get that ‘gram. And now with Pantone’s bubble gum shade of ‘pale dogwood’...

The First Timer’s Guide To a Chic Weekend In Nantucket

hbz-nantucket-00-index-1502466867
Summertime in New York City is all about the weekend getaway. Whether it's the Hamptons, a preppy New England town, or the beaches of New Jersey, there are plenty of easy go-to spots to choose from when escaping the city. But most overlooked for a long weekend trip is the picture-perfect, All-American island of Nantucket. As a New Yorker who's pretty much clueless on all things preppy and New England, I'd never been to Nantucket, Cape Cod, or any of the Northeast's quaint beach towns. So last weekend, I took a long-overdue trip to the charming island to see what ACK (as the locals call it) was all about. From the best lobster rolls to the most picturesque lighthouses, here's a...

This Is The Hot European City All Your Cool Friends Are Talking About

image
This seems to be the summer of Portugal. A small country hugging the west coast of Europe, Portugal always fell well below France, Spain, and Italy of my European adventure list. But, in the past six months, I’ve heard its name many times over; so, when given the opportunity for a quick trip came my way, I was excited to experience this much-buzzed-about country for myself. I always prefer to travel to a spot that's a little off-the-beaten path, so I was excited to visit the city of Porto. What I discovered upon arrival was a port town full of natural beauty, strong and delicious wine, and kind people. It turned out that my favorite parts of Porto were accessible to those...

One Perfect Day In Shanghai’s Former French Concession

Time seems to move a little slower in the former French Concession. While the twisting alleyways of Shanghai’s older neighborhoods have a chaotic charm and the skyscrapers of Pudong present a spotless vision of modernity, the breezy, tree-shaded avenues of what was once the French Concession inspire lingering strolls in search of preserved mansions, one-of-a-kind shops, and, most importantly, delicious food.

“I’ve lived in the same old-school compound for around eight years now, and I still love it,” says Jake Newby, a longtime Shanghai expat and the former editor of Time Out Shanghai. “For quality of life and character, it’s easily one of the best areas in the city.”

This Eggplant Parm Is Famous For Inducing Labor

scalinis-eggplant-parmesan-4
Like every other pregnant person in the history of time, I was nearing a point of pathetic desperation. At 38 weeks, and so large that I once got stuck in my bathtub, my usually rational mind grew increasingly frustrated with science and simultaneously open to old wives’ tales: Pineapples (not too ripe), power walking, raspberry leaf tea, vomit-causing castor oil smoothies—anything to (allegedly) induce labor. So by the time the late-night note arrived in my inbox, it was weird but not that weird: “Try this recipe,” wrote a Facebook friend I hadn’t seen in a decade. Attached was a snapshot of torn crumpled paper, handwritten in scrawled pencil, for Eggplant Parmesan. Her husband, as it turned out, had overheard a gaggle of moms at a Toronto coffee...
