Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An makes a traveler aware of all five senses: the unrelenting sun, an amalgamation of smells from the market, hawkers peddling their goods, scooters and pedestrians weaving a never ending tapestry on the streets, silence in a temple courtyard, peasants and tourists, spicy noodles and a cold beer, another day in Hoi An.

Wynwood Street Art (Miami, FL)

The Wynwood neighborhood, located just north of downtown Miami, is a transformed urban warehouse district. It started with street graffiti and has blossomed into a collection of galleries, eateries, and breweries. The raw feel of street art is still the main draw. Murals seem to go on forever.

Washington D.C. Metro

With six lines and 91 stations, the D.C. transit system is the second busiest in the U.S. Many D.C. metro stations utilize “Brutalist” architecture, which became popular in the 60’s and 70’s. The style originates from French term Béton brut, which translates to “raw concrete.”
