vegas is still vegas

Visiting Las Vegas requires a certain suspension of disbelief (Paris is not located down the street from Venice, for instance), and you might need to draw on that same magical acceptance to fully grasp what the city is planning next. It has been a challenging and intense time for destinations, especially those designed to bring humans together indoors, but the city has responded in a typically Vegas fashion. Next summer, Resorts World Las Vegas is on track to open its 3,500-room casino and resort on 88 acres across Las Vegas Boulevard from the Wynn. On tap for the property: a speakeasy and a Malaysian-inflected urban food hall, as well as restaurants from boldface names like Major Food Group (whose Parm joins its other Vegas outlets, Sadelle’s and Carbone). Meanwhile, Virgin…

nothing beats a cruise

Cruise enthusiast Keith Steiner, with 150 voyages under his belt, on why he keeps getting back on board: “My first was in 1968, with Homeric Lines, an Italian company that no longer exists. My family and I sailed for 13 nights through the Caribbean from New York City, seeing parades in Martinique and synagogues in Curaçao. The trip created such great memories; I’ve been cruising ever since. My love for it has evolved over time. When my kids were little, we could drop them off at the kids club, and then my wife and I could spend a day in port, meaning the family could be apart and together. At the start of the ’90s, I worked for a tech firm that was an early adopter of email, and these ships,…

remembering harold evans

In late September the legendary editor and writer Sir Harold Evans passed away in New York City at the age of 92. Evans was responsible for the some of the most important investigative journalism of the second half of the 20th century in his role as editor of the Sunday Times and other titles in the U.K. and the U.S. He also left an enormous mark on the craft of travel writing by founding Condé Nast Traveler in 1987. Its philosophy was to “tell the truth, be honest, mediate, try and make people’s travel experiences enjoyable and good, and do it from the point of view of an informed traveler,” as Evans said three years ago in an interview to mark the 30th anniversary of the magazine. To articulate this…

just a short flight away

Canada Eco-hospitality brand 1 Hotels arrives in March on buzzy King Street West in downtown Toronto. Two hours east of the city in Prince Edward County (Ontario’s version of the Hamptons), Wander begins greeting guests next month at its collection of West Lake–fronting cabins designed with Nordic flair, while a few miles northeast The Royal will open in the town of Picton in a restored 1879 building. In British Columbia, Harbour Air Seaplanes recently launched a new fly-and-drive program that makes it easier to reach Tofino, on Vancouver Island’s remote Pacific coast, in time for storm-watching season (winter fog frequently disrupts flights). Catch a flight from downtown Vancouver to Nanaimo Harbour, pick up your rental car, and follow the Pacific Rim Highway through old-growth forests to watch 30-foot waves crash on…

kiki layne on rome

“I often get to go to these really cool places for work, though I can’t do much because of my schedule. But in November 2018, I went to Rome for the first time to shoot a short film called The Staggering Girl, directed by Luca Guadagnino, and got to frolic around the city in beautiful Valentino gowns. And I found time to be a tourist. I did guided tours with the headphones and everything, listening to all of this history of the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and different ruins. It allowed me to actually participate so that I was receiving more information—not just visually but really learning about the richness of the history, stories, and structures. I even began to understand how Pierpaolo Piccioli translates it all into his Valentino…

travel matters more than ever

For months we have explored the once-unexamined universe of our neighborhoods, observing the neatly planted window boxes and quiet pocket parks, the Japanese maple that unclenched in spring and one fall day exploded in gold. But while we have learned to find wonder in our own backyards, we travelers still dream of snowy Andean peaks and aperitivi on the Ligurian coast, restlessly making lists of where we’ll go next, our passports growing stiff from disuse in their freshly decluttered drawers. We miss the world. But does it miss us? No and yes. Nature is happy to do its thing, and reduced human activity has had an undeniably positive impact on the air and water—although, with our backs turned, wildlife poaching has increased. The impact of this global grounding on us humans…
