Virtuoso Traveler: April/May 2018

Not all family vacations unfold like National Lampoon films, with breakdowns at Wally World or endless loops in a London roundabout (“Hey look, kids, there’s Big Ben, and there’s Parliament … again.”). Slapstick movie scenes and potential drawbacks aside (think Dad’s awkward dancing on cultural shore excursions or unsolicited child-rearing advice from Grandma), the family vacation lives on, and for good reason.

It’s why we’ve devoted our latest issue of Virtuoso Traveler to this enduring institution. From summer escapes in London, San Diego, and Maine to high adventures in Costa Rica, the Grand Canyon, and the Swiss Alps, here’s to family, in whatever form, and to exploring the world with the ones we love best.

Also inside: finding community while traveling solo, sustaining New Orleans’ cultural traditions, sweet treats for grown-up palettes, and where to find the best local flavor in Portland, Oregon.
