Breakfast All Day

Breakfast All Day

Breakfast All Day
At B.A.D. Burger in New York City, the B.A.D. stands for "burgers/breakfast all day" -- a perk that's on the radar of many foodies. Open 24/7, this comfort-food joint serves up classic breakfast options (steak and eggs, anyone?), as well as vegan alternatives (such as shroom burgers), for cravings from dusk till dawn -- and beyond.

Bread Upon Request
There's nothing quite like warm bread right out of the oven, and many restaurants are catching on to the idea. At Fishtails Café in Newport, OR, the bread is baked fresh daily. So are the muffins, biscuits and pies.

Tapas, antojitos, small plates -- call them what you will, but this trend isn't leaving the culinary scene anytime soon. Restaurants such as Oyamel, a Mexican eatery in Washington, DC, are giving patrons the opportunity to taste many different plates at once.

Canopy Tour

Canopy Tour

Explore the lush tropical forests in Jamaica and go on a zip-line adventure. Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Falmouth are the best areas to go zipping by the canopy of trees. We recommend Chukka Caribbean Adventures in Ocho Rios because they offer other kid-friendly activities, and the view of the Laughlands River gorge is amazing from above. 960 1280

Emancipation Park

Emancipation Park

In Kingston, relax in the solitude of Emancipation Park, which features a jogging track, walking paths and stately fountains. The $4.5 million statue Redemption Song, by Laura Facey Cooper, has become a controversial centerpiece in the park. It depicts a nude slave couple gazing at the heavens … and sometimes elicits comments due to certain larger-than-life physical attributes of the figures. 960 1280
