Trade turkey for Wienerschnitzel, stuffing for cacio e pepe or mashed potatoes for fish and chips this Thanksgiving season.

I stayed at the new St. Regis Venice the week it opened. The brand-new hotel was gorgeous, but I’m not sold on its design, and there were still some kinks to work out. Pros: Beautiful canal views, convenient location and a comfortable bed. Cons: Service inconsistent, along with the functionality of the phone system and Wi-Fi, weird lighting in the bathroom and seemingly fake wood floors that were very slippery.

@HudsonYardsNewYork — New York City’s new neighborhood on the West Side — opened in March, but one of its most exciting developments is still under construction.

PROS: Fantastic location in the 1st arrondissement. You can walk to the Louvre in just one minute. CONS: The Paris Metro travels under the hotel from 5:30 a.m. to 12:40 a.m. daily (1:40 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays). The low rumble may wake light sleepers.

The holidays are a dichotomy of extremes — it can be a magical time to travel, relax and spend time with family, but it can also be stressful, harried and expensive.

Whatever the need, public transportation often forms the central network that laces a city together. But at what cost?

If you’re in Sydney and want to holiday like a local, here are three destinations within a few hours of the city that showcase the best of the coast, mountains and Outback. Most important, you won’t be too far away from famed Aussie baristas and a good flat white.

This isn’t only an airport tool, as registered Clear members can utilize their fast-lane privileges outside of the travel space as well. Next time you're at the ball park, this Clear could be a game changer.

"I like having a repeatable process whenever I get ready for a trip — especially if it’s to a far-flung location where we’ve got a lot of different arrangements and reservations."

While there are many good times of year to visit London, heading there during Thanksgiving week is the perfect combination of extra vacation days and offseason rates.

There’s one thing you can do every time you travel that immediately will make you feel less like a tourist: Do something ordinary.

"The Equinox hotel grounds and property were historic and beautiful, and I loved being able to get out of the concrete jungle that is New York City to enjoy a relaxing weekend away in the woods. I ended up getting a great night of sleep in the bed and had a delicious breakfast. But little things, like the strange bathroom setup, thin walls and terrible room service, might keep me from returning."

Bellagio was, at one time, the crown jewel of the center Strip. The hotel’s location, fountains and dining are still exceptional. However, the rooms are no longer shining stars.
