The historic city of Stuttgart serves as the capital of Germany’s state of Baden-Württemberg. Car enthusiasts know it as the home of the Porsche Museum and the Mercedes-Benz Museum, but you don’t have to be a motoring aficionado to enjoy this beautiful destination. Tip: Like many places in Germany, museums are closed on Mondays, so plan your days accordingly.
Mexico is trending as a top tourist destination thanks to a weak peso and eager Americans looking to head south and avoid high European prices. But you’ll also see swells of tourists flocking to places like Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding Cancun area that can make these gems feel downright cramped.
The vibrant culture, premier beachfront resorts and natural beauty of Mexico lends well to a wide variety of travelers and occasions. With couples heading south on a romantic retreat, groups of friends taking over the beach scene during spring break and families trying to carve out some time to get away between work and school, Mexican resorts expertly cater to everyone.
