The 10th Vail, Colorado If you ride the gondola up, walk in; if you’ve skied over, slip out of your boots and put on some complimentary footwear in the changing area that will make your feet as satisfied as your eyes and mouth will be.The view from this 13,000 square-foot restaurant whose awe-inspiring vistas of the Gore Mountain Range competes with its vaulted ceiling and welcoming fireplace are the second greatest draw to The 10th.

The Frederick Hotel New York, New York Sleeping in Tribeca has always been trendy, so why stop now? As one of the city’s über expensive places to live, the star sightings aren’t all that infrequent.

Drive at your pace, stopping for shells, shirts, seafood, swims, skin or scuba dives or sunsets, as the mood takes you. Take in the view from wherever tickles your fancy. Start In the Upper Keys with Largo, ease down to…
