When you need an East Coast getaway—fast—Bermuda is a fantastic option. It’s closer than the Caribbean, yet offers up the key ingredients of an island getaway: luxurious resorts, locavore restaurants, those famously pink sand beaches, and the most crystal clear turquoise waters I’ve ever seen.
I recently set off on my first adventure to Bermuda and, as you can tell, it won me over—with its beauty, multicultural charm, and convenience. My flight from NYC took less than 2 hours, and I was lying on a powder-soft sand beach (Rum Swizzle in hand) by noon on my arrival day.
Take a cue from my trip for an easy, breezy Bermuda weekend of your own. Read the full, original article on AFAR’s The Wayfarer here.
Boozy picnics, frisbee games, and straight loungin’ on Sheep Meadow: warm weather days are finally here, and there’s no better place to enjoy the great outdoors (or just take a break from crazy city life) than in beautiful Central Park.
There are dozens of awesome eateries within walking distance of the perimeter, from old-school delis to high-end restaurants to casual burger joints. My latest Thrillist article showcases great go-to spots (organized by location) around the Park—check out the full list here. Skip the dirty-water dog vendor and get after it.

New York City crushes the fine-dining game, but sometimes the only way to curb cravings is by visiting a classic, old-fashioned diner. There’s something timeless and nostalgic about a no-frills (and no-res-required!) spot where you can order everything from fluffy banana pancakes to a classic griddle cheeseburger to a malted chocolate milkshake — and all of it at 2am.
Convenience, fast service, and a cornucopia of menu items are the hallmarks of truly great diners, and NYC has no shortage of them. From iconic, decades-old institutions to round-the-clock neighborhood gems, check out a dozen of the city’s top greasy spoons in my latest Thrillist article here.
