beautiful beach kids

Mexcaltitán, a man-made island in a lagoon on the Nayarit coast, is thought to be the ancestral home of the Aztecs. Mexico gave it a Pueblo Mágico designation which can occasionally lure tourists away from the area’s enchanting beaches (like Sayulita, pictured here) for a visit.

201403-hd-what-to-do-in-johannesburgjpg

Don’t think of it as just a stopover; Johannesburg deserves serious exploration of its own.

Because downtown is back. For ages, visitors have sought refuge in the gated suburbs north of town, but inner-city crime rates are dropping and young urbanites are moving in. Walk down lively Juta Street in gritty-but-safe Braamfontein, where Dokter & Misses sells hand-cast ceramics and Afro-Deco furniture, then join the crowd for retro cocktails at the 108-year-old Kitchener’s Carvery Bar (27-11/403-0166; $).

Guggenheim Italian Futurism

New York City's Guggenheim Museum has raised the curtain on the future—and it's very big and very particular. Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe, organized by curator Vivien Greene, brings together more than 360 works of art, including documents and a wide range of objects, from around the world to reveal a largely unknown but dynamic and ambitious aesthetic movement of the first half of the 20th century.
