Buenos Aires—the very name of the city invokes warm, nostalgic images of steamy Tango dancing and authentic epicurean delicacies, all in a lush city where past meets present. Steeped as it is in Latin influence, the Argentine city has undeniable Euro-charm with its Belle Epoque architecture, bustle of fusion restaurants, and buzzing night-time revelers. With this unique yet recognizable homage to Madrid, New York, and even a touch of Paris, for the intrepid traveler, the city gives way immediately and welcomes all into its breezy embrace.
Here we offer up a sample of musts for the best places to stay, eat, drink, and play, and sleep in one of the globe's brightest and most welcoming cities.
Homesteading. It’s a concept that seems to be suggesting that you go home but is actually about hurling yourself into the American hinterlands to live off the land, grow stuff, and invest in your very own, self-produced self-reliance. It's fantastic. You're sold. Now where to? You could drive until your car runs out of gas (foolish, romantic), research where farmland is most fertile (sensible, tedious), or just consult this precise and honest list. Whomever you are, wherever you're escaping from, there's a remote but trendy locale for you.
