Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838 during the Second Seminole War, Fort Lauderdale welcomes visitors with broad, palm-fringed beaches and an easy pace of life. Stroll along fashionable Las Olas Boulevard with its stylish shops or enjoy a sightseeing cruise through the city''s canals, boasting more waterways than Venice. Or, venture out and explore the cosmopolitan city of Palm Beach, or the wildlife sanctuary of the Everglades.

Horta, Azores, Portugal
City Horta

Horta enjoys an almost eternal spring, thanks to the Gulf Stream. The docks are filled with pictures, names and insignias painted by the sailors who pass by. Whole hedges of hydrangeas give the place a nickname: Blue Isle. Go up to Cabeca Gordo, the volcanic crater lake, or enjoy the view of Pico's Peak across the channel.

Praia da Vitoria, Portugal

Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal
City Ponta Delgada

A hidden treasure, the remote Azores islands lie 900 miles west of Portugal and 2,110 miles east of New York. Ponta Delgada's stunning Portuguese architecture and luxuriant, flower-filled parks make walking through this city a joy. Venture out of the city and prepare yourself for some of the most beautiful scenery you have ever witnessed. Dramatic rocky cliffs descend to pristine bays, where you may find a virtually deserted stretch of gorgeous beach. Extinct craters are filled with turquoise waters, and surrounded by gardens of hydrangeas and greenery that thrive in the rich volcanic soil.

Brest, France

Zeebrugge (Bruges), Belgium
City Zeebrugge

A crossroad in the English Channel for centuries, Zeebrugge is the entry to Flanders, whose golden age heritage resides in three historic cities: Ghent, Antwerp and Bruges-a jewel of a town beribboned with picturesque canals and a truly charming medieval beauty. In this region, museums proudly display the glories of the old Flemish masters, from Van Dyck to Rubens, and summertime is delightful when window boxes boast colorful flowers and the graceful arcs of windmills can be seen.

The chief city of Belgium's Flemish region, Antwerp was renowned for centuries as a center of the diamond trade, and recently designated a "Cultural Capital of Europe." Its Royal Museum contains magnificent works by Rubens, Van Dyck, and other old masters.
