"After my recent trip up to Portland, OR, I'm determined to spend more time exploring the Pacific Northwest. Next up? Seattle. There's something so romantic about the idea of ducking into an iconic roaster for a delicious cup of coffee or perusing through a cozy bookshop to escape the rainy weather. And of course, I can't forget about Pike Place Market!" — Stephanie Nguyen, assistant Native editor, Fashion and Beauty

"Much of my family came to the US from Austria, and Vienna (my grandfather's hometown) has always been high on my must-visit list. It's a gorgeous city with some of the world's best museums, the opera, over 2,000 parks (one with an iconic Ferris wheel), and of course tons of delicious coffee and schnitzel. A family trip is definitely in order!" — Joanna Douglas, Native editorial director

"I'm totally obsessed with the overall vibe of California. I've visited Los Angeles and San Francisco before but never San Diego. I've heard there's amazing surfing and warm weather all year-round, so it sounds right up my alley for a mid-Winter getaway when I need to escape the cold weather here in New York! Plus, it's super close to Mexico, and I'm always down for a nice burrito." — Victoria Messina, editorial assistant

"Growing up and living on the East Coast, I've always been dying to go to Hawaii. It was a bit too far for family vacations and weekend getaways, but now I'd love to carve out some time to make the trip. It seems like the quintessential destination to unwind and recharge." — Samantha Netkin, assistant Native editor, Food and Living

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
"After seeing photos from a friend who traveled to Dubai, I added the city to my travel bucket list. The main activity I want to do (besides shop) is skydive over Palm Islands because the view seems incredible. Plus, you’d get a cool Instagram photo out of that experience." — Marina Liao, assistant editor, Fashion

"There's something so lush and exciting about Bali, which is why I've always wanted to take a couple of weeks off, check into a
stunning hotel, and get away from it all. I'm also very interested in the history and traditions of Indonesia, plus the stunning landscapes, temples, and beaches. I'm ready to go now!" — Sarah Lipoff, Native editor, Moms
