Live ITG’s Mexico City—Maximum City, the “navel of the world” to the Aztecs who first made it great. Move from edgy design hotels to venerable corner cantinas, making private stops at galleries, museums and ateliers, cathedrals and palaces—and that’s just during the day. Nighttime means VIP dining rooms, music and outings for every taste, then a salty street taco to cap things off. The buzz of real conversation, with smart locals, in edgy, bohemian neighborhoods. Next stop: guadalajara and monterrey… You can sleep when you get back home.

DOk, you want to see the sights in LA—yet the paparazzi can be such a bore! Maybe set aside one night for a romantic evening at the hotel, where you could do anything from a bespoke gourmet picnic basket to an in-suite, private patio dinner with the wine of your choice, where what comes from Wolfgang Puck’s signature kitchen is a surprise, served by candlelight atop a carpet of rose petals.
Miami Beach has always had you covered for shopping, dining and nightlife, and there are dozens of fabulous spots just steps from the hotel. But Miami’s latest superlative is its contemporary art scene—in scads of new galleries and museums specializing in everything from dazzling newcomers, to known names, to stuff so edgy that…well, just scratch your head and enjoy the passing parade. Glam abounds.
