New York City, New York
Prague, the stunning capital city of the Czech Republic, has become a gem of European tourism. The modern city still retains its medieval city center, complete with cobblestone streets and twisting, narrow alleyways where you’ll find a mix of hip and traditional bars and pubs.
Staromestske Namesti, Prague
One of the city’s most famous landmarks is Prague Castle and Hradcany; originally constructed in the 9th century, it’s the world’s largest ancient castle. Prague’s world-renowned arts scene features a wealth of fine museums including the magnificent National Museum. And don’t forget to check out Prague’s lively music scene; it won’t be hard to find—jazz clubs and year-round festivals are plentiful.
Mammoth Lakes is part of Yosemite National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in east-central California. Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves and biological diversity.
Mammoth Lakes, CA
Mammoth is famous for its stunning hiking trails and crystal clear lakes, excellent skiing in wintertime, and a vibrant music and arts scene year-round. Physically fit travelers will enjoy hiking Yosemite’s many trails and footpaths. Check with rangers for trail conditions; snow and hazards from falling rock close many trails in winter. No permits are required park-wide for day hikes. The valley also offers some of the most challenging and spectacular rock climbing in North America, with vertical faces more than 3,000 feet tall.
