Now Pick Your Destination
I've been to places as far-flung as Tokyo and Anguilla (both cool), but you don't have to cross the globe for a good time. In the U.S., my jet-setting friends and I love these cities for the amazing food, kick-ass music, and - hello - great shopping!
For music junkies...Nashville
The city has 100-plus concerts this summer, from Beyoncé to Bruno Mars. Nashville fans: Stop by The Bluebird Cafe to jam to up-and-coming singer-songwriters. (Taylor Swift got her start there, or you might catch her at the coffee shop Fido.) Before you big night out, pick up tailored jeans at Imogene + Willie and vintage boots at Goodbuy Girls, then head to dinner at one of Connie Britton's favorite spots, The Catbird Seat, for a seasonal, multi-course tasting menu. Later, go to the honky-tonk bars on Broadway (try The Stage or Paradise Park) to dance to live music, and hit the sack at the centrally located Hutton Hotel (it's go chic art galore!).
