Top 5 / North America

If you’re in Seattle, these are the five museums you’ll want to be sure to check out.

 

Bainbridge Island Museum of Art

This museum is all about contemporary art and craftsmanship in the Puget Sound Region.

 

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center

This interactive museum highlights the challenges facing our modern world and the ways we’re making progress toward solutions for issues like poverty and disease.

 

The Center for Wooden Boats

A hands-on maritime museum, the Center for Wooden Boats will give you a taste for local heritage and teach you a few things as well. Attend a mariner workshop, learn how to build a boat (or, at least, the basics) and experience living history.

 

Frye Art Museum

The museum was originally founded by two local patrons of the arts and now includes a range of artwork and artists from around the world.

 

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park

Part-museum, part-national park, this spot traces Seattle’s experience with the Klondike Gold Rush. There are two floors of self-guided exhibits, walking tours and gold panning demonstrations.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
