Cliffs of Moher (Clare): Perhaps Ireland's most famous attraction, the 214-meter-tall Cliffs of Moher attract around a million visitors each year. It's on the southwest edge of the Burren region.


Whether you're headed to Dublin, Belfast, Galway or Cork, as your plane flies over Ireland's low, rolling hills and patchwork of green fields it'll be clear to see why they call it the Emerald Isle. It's the mild but temperamental climate that causes that lushness; you can see four seasons in one day here, even if three of them are winter. Here in the land of saints and scholars, visitors can explore the ancient sacred sites of Newgrange and Clonmacnoise, gaze upon the Book of Kells at Trinity College, or simply soak up the atmosphere in pubs that inspired writers from Flann O'Brien to Brendan Behan to James Joyce. And then there's the glorious coastline: The Cliffs of Moher and the Giant's Causeway may be the big-hitters, but there's plenty more drama to unfold in the 2,500-kilometer Wild Atlantic Way tourism trail in the Republic and the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland.

New York
It’s the most happening of cities, a place where over 200 languages are spoken and millions flock each year to see its world-famous sights. New York draws visitors in like nowhere else. The crowded streets of Manhattan are the stuff of legend. First timers will want to head to the top of the Empire State Building and stand beneath the glare of the lights of Times Square. But there’s so much more to see and do, whether it’s catching an Off-Broadway play, checking out world class art at MoMA or shopping the streets of SoHo. Brooklyn’s hip neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Fort Greene offer a more relaxed vibe, while the food in Queens’ Chinatown is worth the long subway ride.
