Where Should We Go in 2017?


The Oak Bar, Nashville

Why Go: Music City takes center stage as the largest U.S. urban area under the direct path of the August 21 solar eclipse.

Wild Times: Watch the event at the Nashville Zoo, where officials are asking guests to help record any odd behavior during this disruption of the animals’ diurnal routine.

Also Consider: They take bour­bon seriously around here, so we recommend a tasting at the Oak Bar in The Her­mitage Hotel. Opened in 1910, it’s famous for its 180-bottle Bourbon Library – the largest collection in Nashville. For eats, we suggest takeout from Ooh Wee Bar-B-Q and the tasting menu at The Catbird Seat.

Across Canada

Why Go: Festivals and fireworks are in store as the country celebrates its 150th birthday.

Maple Leaf Moments: There’s no better time to capture Canadian pride and the diversity of experiences that the country offers. We recom­mend a stay at Park Hyatt Toronto during the city’s four-day-long Canada Day Bash (June 29 to July 2), as well as Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth, which will reopen in June following an extensive remodel, to enjoy Old Montreal’s history, art, and excellent food.

More to See: We also suggest visiting Ottawa from July 26 to 30, when a giant mechanical spider and dragon will rove the capital’s streets. A monster hit in Europe, La Machine’s robots will interact with spectators during performances on their first visit to North America.
