The #WindyCity is well known for being the home of deep-dish pizza and Italian beef sandwiches, but on a recent visit a couple of in-the-know foodies took the time to educate me on the current upscale dining scene. Here’s his shortlist of dining and drinking and foodie favorites: http://bit.ly/2rpXTLq #ALT #Chicago

Known as The Cidade Maravilhosa (“marvelous city”), Rio de Janeiro it is one of the most striking urban areas in the world and famously home to the annual Carnaval, which takes place on Rio’s bustling streets. http://bit.ly/2nIxQ0o #Brazil #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

#Huahine is one of many spectacularly beautiful islands in #FrenchPolynesia. It’s also my favorite, primarily because it doesn’t feel touristy. When my husband and I explored the island on foot and by car, we encountered only friendly locals and felt very welcome. http://bit.ly/1zFOdLU #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

#Lanai City (pop. 3,000) hasn’t changed all that much over the past decades and that’s its charm — there’s not one traffic light on the island, the streets are lined with modest bungalows, and a few small stores, gift shops, and restaurants remain. But at the far end of the Park sits the National Historic Registered Hotel Lanai, built as housing for #Dole Plantation managers (yes, as in Dole Pineapples), in 1923. This very authentic lodging option offers a dozen rooms with charming plantation style furnishings and a restaurant, the Lanai City Grille. http://bit.ly/1ycMCqV #Hawaii #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

Rancho La Puerta, the famous spa retreat in #Tecate, #Mexico, is a great option for visitors to #SanDiego who want a taste of Mexican culture. The resort is an hour east of San Diego and just 3.3 miles south of the border. Normally reservations are only accepted for one-week stays, but savvy San Diegans — like Mimi Pollack, who contributed this guest post — know that one day visits are possible on selected Saturdays. http://bit.ly/2c5FEFy #LocalTips #RanchoLaPuerta #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

#Shinde is a private reserve that allows your guides to take you anywhere on the vast property to capture some of the most incredible animal photos ever! We were lucky enough to be there when the lions were coming together to mate — apparently this happens once a year and lasts for three days — timing is everything! http://bit.ly/2nNH2kq #Botswana #Africa #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

#Cozumel Vacation Rentals are not in short supply. However, it took my husband and me a couple of days to find a house that would meet the needs of our family. In fact, I thought we might go blind looking on VRBO, Flip Key, and HomeAway — and then we finally found the home of our dreams on +Airbnb http://bit.ly/2mx7TkB #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

#Giverny Travel Tip: Don’t use public transportation to get to the garden unless you’re willing to share the space with lots of other visitors. Rent a car (like we did) or hire a private guide who is licensed to take you in his car. http://bit.ly/GivernyFrance #France #Monet #AuthenticLuxuryTravel #ALT

Did you know: the #Sydney Opera House isn’t an opera house per se, it’s a world-class performing arts center consisting of five performance halls, several restaurants, reception areas, archives, and hundreds of smaller rooms. http://bit.ly/2dW8p57 #Australia #SydneyOperaHouse #ALT
