The evolution of Cable Beach has all eyes on it as what was once called The Bahamian Riviera transforms itself and regains its former allure. The multi-billion-dollar BahaMar project is being built to outshine neighboring mega-resort Atlantis on nearby Paradise Island. The new five-star project will feature several luxury hotels, ownership opportunities, Rodeo Drive shopping, a professional golf course, and the largest casino in the Caribbean.
Antibes is bathed in the intense, luminous quality of light which attracted painters to the Riviera whose names read like an artistic roll call in Who’s Who: Picasso, Matisse, Renoir, Signac, and Chagall established themselves in the region, while Claude Monet was a frequent visitor. The area attracted many writers, too, including Graham Greene, who spent the last years of his life in Antibes, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, who set Tender Is The Night here.
The Oregon Coast is one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world and a dream vacation for photographers. Crashing waves, seabirds and seals, beautiful beaches, rock formations — and that’s just the beginning of what you will see. In fact, the biggest problem is figuring out where to go, where to stay, and what to shoot, because there are so many choices it’s hard to know where to begin.
Throughout the day, the Hotel de Glace, located 10 minutes from downtown Quebec City, hosts throngs of tourists who come to tour the icy rooms and admire the beauty of this amazing place. Sculpted completely from snow and ice, this unique hotel is created each winter and demolished again each spring. This year’s theme of Myths and Legends from Around the World includes a 600-pound ice chandelier, an ice chapel where weddings are held, and an indoor ice slide. Many will enjoy cocktails in the “ice bar” where colorful drinks are served in glasses made from translucent blocks of ice.
