Where do the Travel + Leisure editors want to go? These three destinations are on our radar now.
T+L Pick: Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee has always been home to country music but we’re noticing the rise of exciting, enterprising chefs. Start at Josephine, a farm-to-table-style spot in the 12 South area, then hit Pinewood Social, with a menu by local star Josh Habiger. The stellar turkey and cranberry sandwich tastes like Thanksgiving any day of the year.
T+L Pick: Little Corn Island, Nicaragua
We’re always looking for the next great secret beach escape. Our bets are on Little Corn Island in Nicaragua for its blissfully slow pace and the delectable fresh lobster dinners. The new Yemaya Island Hideaway & Spa has just 16 cabanas and morning yoga sessions.
T+L Pick: Iceland
According to NASA, this winter will bring incredible, you-can’t-believe-it stargazing in Iceland. So now’s the time we’re booking our stay at Ion Hotel, an hour outside Reykjavik. From the wraparound terrace, you may spot the Northern Lights as they reach the peak of an 11-year solar cycle this December.
