Overview Introduction Generally seen as a day trip from Tunis and Hammamet, this seaside city has good beaches (which can be crowded during the summer) and interesting local handicrafts (ceramics, pottery and embroidery). Nabeul's market is held on Friday—prices are very high because so many tour...


The town of Nadi (pronounced NAN-dee ), 75 mi/120 km by air northwest of Suva, on Viti Levu, doesn't really offer much to visitors (other than tacky shopping), but the beauty of the surrounding region and the offshore islands is reason enough to at least pass through. The international airport is t...


Nagano, Japan, is a ski area best-known as the site of the 1998 Winter Olympics. It is also the jumping-off point for countless trailheads in the Japanese Alps. The small city is quiet by Japanese standards and is more of a transit hub than a destination itself. Its main claim to fame is a massive...


This village of Nagarkot is just a small collection of houses and guesthouses 20 mi/30 km east of Kathmandu. Although it barely exists, its location, atop the mountains ringing the Kathmandu Valley, gives it a unique perspective. On clear mornings October-May, you can see Mount Everest from Nagark...


The ancient port city of Nagasaki was destroyed by the second atomic bomb dropped by U.S. forces in World War II. Today, this city on the western coast of Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan's main islands and 594 mi/956 km southwest of Tokyo, is a thriving industrial port and a pleasant mixture of E...


This area gained international notice in 1988 as the site of conflict between the ethnic, mostly Oriental Orthodox Christian Armenians—who form a majority of the population and who have declared Nagorno-Karabakh to be part of Armenia—and the mostly Muslim Azerbaijanis, who claim it should continue t...


Japan's fourth-largest city, Nagoya, is located 70 mi/115 km east of Kyoto. It was almost completely destroyed during World War II, but today it's a bustling place. Nagoya also is a good base for exploring nearby destinations—including original feudal castles. To the south is the Ise-Shima Natio...

Nahanni National Park

This wilderness area, west of the Mackenzie River and Great Slave Lake, 325 mi/520 km west of Yellowknife, in the southwest corner of the Northwest Territories, contains deep canyons, waterfalls, rapids, hot springs, alpine prairies, rugged mountains and plenty of wildlife. The very impressive Vir...


As the sun rises each morning in equatorial East Africa, Nairobi, Kenya, is already bustling with traffic, streams of pedestrians and people pushing carts. In Nairobi's markets, the floors are washed and fresh produce is artfully arranged, tea sellers unlock their stalls and light their fires, and ...


Overview Introduction Set on a craggy perch in the West Hanjar Hills and overlooking groves of palms, the town's 17th-century fortress has one of the most dramatic and picturesque views in the country. The area is also known for its mineral-rich thermal springs, the most popular of which is at Th...

Nakhon Pathom

The main attraction in Nakhon Pathom is the impressive Phra Prathom Chedi—the tallest and largest Buddhist monument in Thailand—which marks the spot where Buddhism was introduced to Thailand nearly 2,300 years ago.

At first glance, Namibia might seem like one of Earth's most desolate places. With its ancient deserts, parched salt pans and a windblown shoreline littered with the weathered hulls of foundered ships, there would seem little potential for life and color—and little to interest the average traveler. ...

Namib-Naukluft National Park

South and east of Walvis Bay in Namibia, Namib-Naukluft National Park, founded in 1907, shelters ostriches, springbok and gemsbok, among other wild animals. In the middle of the park is Sossusvlei, an amazing place for viewing giant sand dunes. (In the dry season, the dunes can be 1,000 ft/300 m t...


Overview Introduction A half-day trip can be made from Pyongyang to Nampo to see the West Sea Barrage, a 5-mi-/8-km-long seawall that controls tides and flooding in a wide estuary on the western coast. It's an impressive feat of engineering, and you'll hear an endless discourse on the details of ...


Overview Introduction Namur, the capital of Wallonia, straddles the Meuse and Sambre Rivers at the gateway to the Ardennes.

Nanjing, China, located 170 mi/275 km northwest of Shanghai, was the first Ming Dynasty capital in the 1300s and Chiang Kai-shek's capital in the 1920s.

Nantes, France, is approximately 235 mi/380 km southwest of Paris, or about a two-hour ride on the TGV, the high-speed train. It's a beautiful city and merits at least an overnight visit.

Nantucket, Massachusetts, is at the confluence of two bodies of water, 30 mi/48 km out from the mainland.

Nanumanga Island

Overview Introduction Nanumaga, a small island skirted by a lovely coral reef, is a very difficult place for boats to land and, consequently, isn't visited very often. That's a shame, because it's such a lovely island. If you plan to go, read the 19th-century book by Louis Becke, who lived in the...

Nanumea Atoll

Overview Introduction Nanumea is the northernmost of Tuvalu's nine islands and atolls. During World War II, the U.S. military used it as a base to counter Japanese advances into the Gilbert Islands.

There are as many stories about Naples, Italy, as there are sides to the city, but there's one thing almost everyone can agree on: You either love it or hate it. Unlike other Italian cities, Naples does not offer calm cobblestoned streets or a leisurely passeggiatta . Its streets are painted wit...


Naples, Florida, a wealthy community 140 mi/225 km south of Tampa, has evolved into one of the state's premier destinations for upscale travelers, especially mariners and golfers.

Located 20 mi/30 km east of Osaka and 25 mi/45 km south of Kyoto, Nara makes an interesting day trip—or preferably overnight visit—from either place. For history buffs, Nara is a must-see. It was once the capital of Japan, so naturally it has some of the country's most famous buildings. The ancien...


Many visitors to the Narragansett area come for the beaches, just 30 mi/50 km south of Providence. Narragansett Town Beach is particularly popular with surfers, and it hosts the New England Mid-Winter Championships each February. Just to the south of town, close to the port of Galilee, are three s...


The small city of Narva is an interesting stopover 120 mi/195 km east of Tallinn for travelers on their way to St. Petersburg.

Nashville, Tennessee, is definitely country music and all that goes with it—cowboy hats and elaborate, custom boots, songs about heartbreak and crying over beer. Bumper stickers reading "Eat More Rhinestones" and "Viva Nashvegas" reflect the shiny, glitzy surface of Music City. But Nashville's rep...


Located on the island of New Providence, Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas. You'll find the islands' best sightseeing and historic buildings there.

Overview Introduction Somewhat off the beaten track, Nata, Panama, is one of the oldest Spanish colonial towns in the country. The main reason for visiting this sleepy village, 85 mi/135 km west of Panama City, is to see its beautifully restored 16th-century church, the oldest in North America (c...


Natal, located on the northeastern tip of Brazil 1,290 mi/2,075 km north of Rio de Janeiro, is best known for its beaches. Although those in the center of the city have lost most of their allure, the stunning dunes that grace the southern neighborhood of Ponta Negra attract surfers and sunworshipper...


Set on a high bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, 90 mi/145 km southwest of Jackson, Natchez was born in the cotton-boom days. Riverboats still dock there, although now they're more likely to carry vacationers than bales of cotton. Established in 1716 as Fort Rosalie by Jean Baptiste Le Moyne...

Natchez Trace Parkway

Native Americans forged the route of the Natchez Trace through the forests and marshes of the South, largely following the well-worn paths that buffalo and other animals began making more than 8,000 years ago. Toward the end of the 1700s, the Natchez Trace became a prime route for pioneers and, es...

National Parks

There are national parks besides Virunga and Kahuzi-Biega, but we're not that keen on any of them—what they offer is better managed in other countries.

Natural Bridges National Monument

The Natural Bridges National Monument in southeastern Utah (25 mi/40 km west of Blanding and 255 mi/410 km southeast of Salt Lake City) boasts three huge rock bridges, the result of millions of years of erosion.

For most of the 20th century, this tiny island nation has been plundered of its unlikely treasure—phosphate.

Navajo National Monument

This area, near Tonalea, is part of the Navajo Nation Reservation and is home to two spectacular Pueblo (Anasazi) structures.

Nay Pyi Taw

Translating literally to mean "Royal City of the Sun," Myanmar's slightly extravagant capital city of Nay Pyi Taw is one of the more recent chapters in Myanmar history. Ground was broken on the city in 2002 when the generals decided the current capital, Yangon, was feeling claustrophobic. (Rumor has...


Nazare, Portugal, is a picturesque if somewhat touristy fishing village 80 mi/130 km north of Lisbon. It is worth a visit of at least several hours, and you might prefer to stay overnight.

The dusty capital city of N'Djamena, near the Cameroon border, is seldom visited as a destination by itself, but as the country's largest city, it often figures in a visit to Chad.

If you think of the Netherlands solely as a tranquil still life by Vermeer, you may be in for a surprise.

Located 25 mi/40 km west of Bern, Neuchatel is truly a sparkling little city—its buildings of yellow sandstone glitter in the sun.

Much of Nevada is desert, and deserts are known for their mirages.

Nevis, a green cone topped by cloud-covered Mount Nevis, is evolving rapidly from a sleepy backwater into a hideaway of the well-to-do.

New Caledonia

New Caledonia's capital, Noumea, has everything a Francophile could desire: fresh baguettes, plentiful Bordeaux, chic boutiques, metropolitan gendarmes and occasionally rude service—all in a gorgeous tropical setting. Though this sizable South Pacific archipelago has been a French colony for nearly ...

New Castle

This original state capital, about 7 mi/11 km south of Wilmington, is a major colonial seaport on the Delaware River. New Castle's biggest attraction is its authenticity.

New Harmony

Utopia was on the minds of both men who tried to develop ideal communities in southwest Indiana.

New Haven

Located 40 mi/65 km southwest of Hartford, New Haven, Connecticut, was once a thriving seaport, and the colonial merchants who amassed great fortunes endowed Yale University in 1714.

New Ireland

Overview Introduction New Ireland, with peaks reaching 4,900 ft/1,500 m, is divine. In the main town, Kavieng , be sure to see the Stone Grain Grinding Wheel (circa 1852) and the Museum of Manggan Carvings (ancient stone tools). Other attractions in the area include the Utu Village High School a...

New Jersey

When Bruce Springsteen, one of New Jersey's best known native sons, sang of escaping a land of factories, refineries and giant Exxon signs, he reinforced the idea that the state was one big industrial wasteland—an idea that seems very true if you whiz through on the northern stretches of the New Jer...

New London/Groton

New London and adjacent Groton were one city until 1705. They're nearly midway between New York City and Boston, along the Thames River (pronounced as it looks, not like the river in England) and Long Island Sound.

New Mexico

Disappearing civilizations, secret atomic test sites, Native American healers, divine dirt and miraculous staircases...

New Orleans

New Zealand

New Zealanders sometimes refer to their country as "God Zone," a rather prideful twist on the phrase "God's Own." But if you like gorgeous scenery and gutsy people, you'll agree with them. New Zealand is blessed with some of the most varied and dramatic terrain in the world—from glaciers, fjords and...


Long beset by inner-city problems, Newark has in recent decades made a turnaround. New Jersey's largest city and one of its oldest, Newark grew very quickly into a major commercial center.

The University of Delaware, a beautiful college established in 1765, is based in Newark, 14 mi/23 km southwest of Wilmington.

The city of Newcastle ("Newie" to the locals), just a two-hour drive north of Sydney and a 40-minute drive from the Hunter Valley wine region, is growing in popularity as a less expensive place to live than Sydney.

Newfoundland & Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador may not be the edge of the world, but it sure seems like it: wind-whipped grass, murky fog, and rocky cliffs that plunge into the wild sea. It's a place where we walk a little slower than usual, making sure there's solid ground under each footstep. Those who call Newfoundl...

Another of Tanzania's UNESCO World Heritage sites, Ngorongoro Crater offers, arguably, the finest wildlife viewing in Africa. Unlike in the neighboring Serengeti, game does not need to migrate thanks to the permanent supply of water and grass through both the wet and the dry seasons. Its combination...


Located in the farthest reaches of eastern Niger, N'Guigmi is the last town on the dirt road to Chad. It's a gray, dusty frontier outpost that feels very much like the end of the road. The market to the south does a big trade in camels, because the area is primarily populated by nomadic people, the ...

Nha Trang

Nha Trang, set on Vietnam's mountainous coast 250 mi/400 km northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, is best known for its golden beaches, clean air and proximity to some paradiselike islands. The city is a pleasant seaside resort with a relaxed atmosphere and well-developed tourist services. Nha Trang is e...

Niagara Falls

One of the world's most famous travel destinations, Niagara Falls offers a combination of natural beauty and entertainment that has inspired visitors since the 19th century. The impressive 170-ft-/53-m-high Horseshoe Falls on the Canada side and romantic, mist-filled Bridal Veil Falls in the U.S. ...


About 15 mi/25 km north of Niagara Falls, the Niagara Parkway reaches the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, located at the mouth of the river on Lake Ontario. Niagara-on-the-Lake is steeped in history and was Canada's first capital until 1867, when Ottawa assumed that distinction. These days,...


Niger's capital, located in the far western region of the country, is a lively, fairly modern city of 748,600. Niamey offers unique open-air markets that are great for people-watching—they're patronized by members of the Tuareg, Sonuri and Fulani tribes. The grande marche , or main market, in the c...


Despite Nicaragua's vibrant, tumultuous history, the violence associated with the Sandinista revolution and Contra War ended in the early 1990s, leaving a tranquil, peace-loving people to finally get on with their lives. Today's Nicaragua is politically stable and attracts an increasing number of ...


Graced with an average of 2,640 hours of sunshine per year, Nice, France, proudly wears the colors of Chagall and Matisse: Its Mediterranean bay is azure blue, its tiled roofs are red, its houses ocher and yellow, and its gardens emerald green. All those colors also show up at the wonderful flower ...

Nicosia (Greek Cyprus)

Nicosia (pronounced nick-oh-SEE-ah ; also called Lefkosia in Greek) is the capital of the Republic of Cyprus. The old city, which is surrounded by a 16th-century wall built by the Venetians, is filled with museums and fine old churches that reveal the depth of the island's history and culture. The ...

Nicosia (Turkish Cyprus)

Nicosia is also the capital of Turkish Cyprus (the Turks call the city Lefkosa ). The Turkish side also has part of the original Venetian city walls intact, but it has a more exotic feel than the Greek side: The streets are narrower and more winding and filled with shops, cafes and restaurants serv...


The resort village of Nida—35 mi/55 km south of Klaipeda on the 60-mi/95-km strip of land known as the Curonian Spit, or Neringa Peninsula—is beautifully sited. It is surrounded by drifting sand dunes, lagoons and a long, white-sand beach. The peninsula is a national park. The spit is a brief ferry ...


Niger straddles the Sahel, the unforgiving boundary zone in north-central Africa where the greener climes of the south give way to sandy soil and stunted vegetation and then to the dry silence of the Sahara. At just about any time of the year, it can be a blazing furnace. But Niger is also a hotbed ...


Although Nigeria has substantial oil and mineral deposits, prosperity is far out of the reach of most of its people, and poverty is widespread. Inflation and corruption in Nigeria are rampant, riots and strikes are frequent, and the country's infrastructure is in tatters from plunder by past governm...

Niihau Island

Nicknamed "the Forbidden Island," Niihau is largely off-limits to Hawaii's visitors; it is owned by the Robinson family, who purchased it from King Kamehameha IV in 1863. The island is home to about 200 native Hawaiians who live a very traditional lifestyle. The economic mainstays are raising cattle...


The city of Nikko, set amid mountains, usually is seen as a day trip from Tokyo (which is 75 mi/120 km to the south), but if you have the time, it's best to stay overnight. Numerous shrines and pagodas are nearby, the best-known being Toshogu Shrine, which houses the mausoleum of the first Tokugaw...


The Provencal town of Nimes, France, about 65 mi/105 km northwest of Marseille, has an ancient past. Among its historical landmarks are a well-preserved Roman arena, Les Arenes Nimes, which is one of southwest France's most impressive Roman ampitheaters. It was used to stage gladitorial competitio...


Nimrod, the second capital of the Assyrian empire, once contained impressive, well-preserved ruins. Of special interest were the temple of Ninurta and Sargon's Palace, as well as the relief of lions with wings on the wall at the gate to Assurnasirpal II's Palace. In early 2015 ISIS terrorists were...

Nine Miles

If Nine Miles doesn't sound familiar, don't worry: It's a remote mountain village that doesn't even appear on some maps of Jamaica. It's about 48 mi/80 km northwest of Kingston and 25 mi/40 km south of Runaway Bay, between Alexandria and Claremont, on roads that become increasingly potholed and wind...


This former Assyrian capital (named after the Assyrian god Nina) was renowned for its ruins of ancient buildings, a few nicely restored gates, some partially restored walls and a small museum. In early 2015, ISIS terrorists bulldozed the ruins, blew up the gates and trashed the museum. Fortunately, ...

Ningaloo Reef

Overview Introduction Ningaloo Reef is on Australia's west coast. The reef is accessible from both Exmouth and Coral Bay, about halfway between Perth and Broome. One of only a very few coral reefs in the world to form on the western side of a continent (ocean currents favor east-side formation), ...


Ningbo, a laid-back, green city in coastal Zhejiang province, was a strong candidate to become the nation's east coast financial, commercial and shipping center back in the 1980s when China began opening up to the world. Instead, that accolade was given to Shanghai. Ningbo, meanwhile, settled into a...

Ninh Binh

The provincial capital of Ninh Binh, 62 mi/100 km south of Hanoi, is worth a two- or three-day visit on its own, rather than the usual day trip from Hanoi. It is a bit off the trodden tourist trail, and there the life of contemporary Vietnam is visible without the prepackaged spin that most resorts ...

Niokolo-Koba National Park

Niokolo-Koba National Park in Senegal is the largest game park in West Africa and the most tantalizing on paper, with a species list that includes lion, leopard, elephant, chimpanzee, buffalo and a rich variety of antelope and other ungulates, including the last wild population of the western race o...


Nis, Serbia, located 150 mi/240 km by road southeast of Belgrade, is one of the oldest Balkan cities. It features the odd and ghoulish Cele Kula (Tower of Skulls), which was erected in the early 19th century by the Turks and is composed in part from the skulls of dead Serbians who fought against the...


Just 9 mi/14 km east of and across the bay from Rio de Janeiro, Niteroi is a town with three wonderful beaches: Itaipu, Camboinhas and Itacoatiara. The city is connected by bus and ferry to Rio. There are numerous restaurants, bars, clubs and kiosks. Parque da Cidade has wildflowers, tropical pla...


Many vacation destinations are called hidden getaways, but in the case of Niue, it's appropriate. The island's most distinctive sights truly are hidden—they're underground and underwater—and include buried grottoes, pools and caverns that can be explored by scuba divers, swimmers and explorers afoot...

Niulakita Island

Overview Introduction The southernmost island of Tuvalu, Niulakita is a solitary coral island less than a mile/kilometer long. A century ago, workers excavated guano (accumulated droppings left by seabirds) for use as fertilizer. Later, an Australian company used the island as a coconut plantatio...

Niutao Island

Overview Introduction Even with only about 700 people, Niutao has the unenviable distinction of being the most densely populated island in Tuvalu. Boat captains making the journey there should inquire locally about how best to approach the shore. 220 mi/350 km northwest of Funafuti.


Overview Introduction Only a short drive into the interior from Masqat, Nizwa is interesting for its 17th-century fort and watchtower, and its souk, which specializes in daggers, silver and brass items. Also worth seeing is the falaj , the well-preserved irrigation system. Nearby are the interes...

Nkhata Bay

Overview Introduction The most popular traveler hangout on Lake Malawi, Nkhata Bay is a lively little village with markets, cafes and a busy fishing harbor. It attracts many backpackers who spend up to a few weeks there in the rustic beach resorts. Though best-known as a place to chill out, Nkhat...


Overview Introduction On the banks of Lake Malawi, Nkhotakota is the oldest settlement in Malawi and was once a center for the slave trade. The fig tree under which Dr. Livingstone preached against slavery can still be seen. The village can be visited on a very long day trip from Lilongwe or when...

Nogal Valley

Overview Introduction This arid region was once a rich, fertile valley, but soil erosion has left it somewhat desolate. Overland travel is difficult during the rainy season, when roads sometimes become impassable even for four-wheel-drive vehicles. War and drought have decimated the land, but yo...


Nome is located on the northwest side of Alaska on the Bering Sea, 550 mi/885 km northwest of Anchorage. The town came into existence practically overnight after gold was discovered there in 1898. The town's highlights include the Carrie McLain Memorial Museum (exhibits on the gold rush and the n...

Nong Khai

Just downriver from Vientiane, the capital of Laos, and 310 mi/500 km north of Bangkok, the Mekong River town of Nong Khai, Thailand, is a popular transit point for travelers. It has also emerged as an attractive option in its own right—there is a fantastic sculpture park of Hindu deities and Buddhi...


Overview Introduction Located about 5 mi/8 km north of Oranjestad, Noord, Aruba, is the tourist hub and most inhabited town on the island. Many attractions are found there beyond the large resorts and their beaches.


Overview Introduction There are two reasons travelers go to this completely modern town (built in 1960). One is to see the nearby Norak Dam and its hydroelectric station. More than 975 ft/300 m high, the dam is billed as the tallest concrete barrier in the world, and the attached station boasts t...


Norfolk, Virginia, is best known as the home of the world's largest naval-base complex (Naval Station Norfolk), which has been around since the beginning of the 20th century. It was also an important port city in the colonial period: St. Paul's Church, built in 1739, still stands, as does Fort Norf...


Overview Introduction This town is home to the University of Oklahoma. In 2005, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on the university campus opened a new wing that houses its impressive collection of French Impressionist paintings, American painting and sculpture (particularly Modernism and Southwes...

Norman Island

Home to one of the most protected anchorages in the region (known as The Bight), Norman Island, British Virgin Islands, is located on the Flanagan Passage and Sir Francis Drake Channel (south of Tortola). A favorite of sailors, it's an uninhabited, mountainous island with beautiful beaches, caves, g...

North Adams

Overview Introduction Located in the Berkshires region of northwestern Massachusetts, the small city of North Adams is home to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA). Describing itself as a supercollider for the arts, the museum is a must-visit for contemporary art fans.

North Caicos

North Caicos is the northernmost island of the Turks and Caicos chain. It has lime and papaya trees, the beautiful and nearly deserted 7-mi-/11-km-long Whitby Beach, and a handful of hotels. The main settlements on North Caicos are Bottle Creek, Whitby and Kew. Jeeps and 4x4 vehicles are the best ...

North Carolina

You'll have to choose sides in North Carolina—the mountains or the coast? Hike wooded trails or stroll on the beach? Drive the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway or sail across the sound on a ferry? Gaze over misty valleys from a mountain peak or admire the arc of the shoreline from a sand dune? It's diffic...

North Cascades Natl Pk

This large, 504,781-acre/204,278-hectare park in the northern part of Washington state includes deep coniferous forests, alpine meadows and hundreds of glaciers. Mule deer, mountain goats and black bears freely roam the area. This rugged and varied wilderness is not as well-known as other national p...

North Dakota

There's a saying in North Dakota: "Forty below keeps the riffraff out." It seems to be true, because the state has the lowest crime rate in the U.S. Cold temperatures—along with the state's rather remote location—keep out a lot of other people, too, including large numbers of vacationers. Most peop...

North East

North East, Maryland, is located 45 mi/70 km northeast of Baltimore, at the head of the Chesapeake Bay. Once a bustling fishing center, North East now concentrates on landing tourists. Main Street is lined with shops offering antiques, gifts and fresh seafood. The Upper Bay Museum, housed in a for...

North Greenland

Overview Introduction Inuit villages were scattered around Qaanaaq ( Thule ) in far northwestern Greenland when the area was explored by Sir James Ross in 1818 (and later by Knud Rasmussen). Today, special permits are required for visits to this region because it is home to the Thule Air Base o...

North Island

Overview Introduction North Island is open only to guests at the sensual, sophisticated, 11-villa North Island Lodge, which takes the concept of barefoot luxury to extraordinary levels. Located 19 mi/30 km north of Mahe, the island is ecofriendly with a resident ecologist and marine biologist. ht...

North Korea

For decades, North Korea has operated more like a national cult than a country. Dictator Kim Il Sung, known as the Great Leader, who was succeeded by his son Kim Jong Il (the "Dear Leader"), created one of the most isolated and eccentric cultures in the world. The few visitors allowed into the count...

North Macedonia

North Macedonia, the only state to secede from Yugoslavia without bloodshed, finally fell victim to the Balkan curse in 2001. The country's ethnic Albanian minority, which increased with the influx of refugees from neighboring Serbia and Kosovo, took up arms against the North Macedonian government a...

North Platte

Very much a crossroads of the Old West, North Platte, Nebraska, was a way station for the Pony Express and another town along the Oregon and Mormon Trails. Latter-day travelers passing through North Platte, located 280 mi/450 km west of Omaha, should take a break and visit the Buffalo Bill Ranch Sta...

North Rim

The breathtaking North Rim rewards travelers with greater silence and isolation than can be found on the South Rim. It receives only a fraction of the park's total visitors, partly because it closes in the winter and partly because it's in a rather remote location. The park boundary on the North R...

North Shore

The north shore of Kauai Island is one of the most beautiful spots in Hawaii. Check with local residents and beachgoers to see if it's safe to swim at any given beach before jumping in: North shore beaches can have dangerous undertows and currents, especially during winter. It's also fairly rainy (...

North York Moors Natl Pk

North York Moors National Park is a boon to walkers and nature lovers (though, in our opinion, not quite as lovely as the Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and Lake District). Located 25 mi/40 km north of York, the park's scenery ranges from bare, open moorland to the windswept coast. The area is b...


Although there's not much to recommend the city of Northampton itself, the surrounding countryside has quite a few attractions to draw visitors. Principal among these is Althorp, the childhood home and burial site of Diana, Princess of Wales (advance tickets are required because the number of visito...


Northampton, Massachusetts, where former U.S. President Calvin Coolidge lived and practiced law after attending Amherst College, is a well-preserved 19th-century town with a thriving arts community.

Northeast British Columbia/Alaska Highway

Northeast British Columbia (near the borders of Alberta, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon) is beautiful, sparsely populated and easily seen by driving the Alaska Highway. Begin in Dawson Creek, the southern terminus of the highway. While in town, take the time to see the Dawson Creek Art Gall...

Northern Ireland

In Northern Ireland, you will find many of the same delights as in the Republic: ancient stone circles, Celtic high crosses, historic towns and treasures, lively pubs and friendly people. You will notice a slightly different accent, but you'll be welcomed with the same warm hospitality. From the ...

Northern Marianas

How fast can you say CNMI? The residents of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands refer to their Pacific homeland by its initials, saying the letters as quickly as possible, so that they come out in an exotic-sounding blur. But you might also add the letters U.S. when you say the name, be...

Northumberland Strait/Sunrise Trail

Sunrise Trail (Highway 6) runs along the Northumberland shore, which has miles/kilometers of red-sand beaches, and the water of Northumberland Strait is said to be the warmest salt water north of the Carolinas in the U.S. The strong, constant sunshine and shallow water help keep it at bathwater temp...

Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories is one of the world's last great frontiers. Covering 450,000 sq mi/1.17 million sq km of the Canadian north, it is one of the wildest and most inhospitable parts of North America. Hunting and fishing are not just recreational pursuits there: For some people, they are the me...

Northwoods, The

This large region in the northeast portion of the state is heavily forested (at least for now—it's the heart of the Wisconsin paper industry). Relive the state's lumberjack days at the logging museum in Rhinelander —it contains a full-scale reproduction of a logging camp from the 1800s. Northwest ...


Norway is Europe's great parkland: a dramatic mix of mountains, seas, forests and fjords. While the country has tidy cities, historic buildings and distinctive artists, nature is clearly its prime attraction. We think it's one of the loveliest countries in the world, summer or winter, and the prim...


A thriving city with a historic center, 100 mi/160 km northeast of London, Norwich, England, is dominated by a cathedral spire built to rival that of Salisbury. Be sure to visit the cathedral (note the comical misericords on the seats) and the castle (now a museum). There are many other churches—it'...


The village of Nospelf, Luxembourg, is known for its earthenware, and it has a small pottery museum. Good times to visit the villiage, located 12 mi/20 km northwest of Luxembourg City, are Easter Monday for the pottery festival; the last Sunday in July, when the town fills with artisans who demonstr...

Nosy Be Island

The name Nosy Be means "Big Island," though it is often referred to as the Island of Perfume. Relatively quiet and tranquil (and 390 mi/630 km north of Antananarivo), Nosy Be is Madagascar's only true resort area, with attractive fine-sand beaches and good places for diving and snorkeling. Mount P...

Nosy Boraha

Nosy Boraha, Madagascar, was formerly a pirate hideout (more commonly known as Ile Sainte Marie) and has a charming, relaxed pace. This island 200 mi/320 km northeast of Antananarivo is just 30 mi/55 km long and 4 mi/7 km wide. Only one road connects the main town, Ambodifototra, with scattered se...

Nosy Mangabe

Nosy Mangabe is a small island near Madagascar's Masoala Peninsula known for its population of aye-ayes, which were introduced there in the 1960s when this peculiar creature was thought to be on the brink of extinction. The aye-ayes are quite easy to locate, but since they are nocturnal, that's only...


The city of Nottingham, in the hills of north-central England 105 mi/170 km northwest of London, was headquarters for the legendary Robin Hood. Don't go out of your way to see it, but if it's convenient, plan a few hours for the Nottingham Castle Museum (local historical displays and art), Wollaton ...


This port city of 70,000 on the edge of the Sahara has a noticeable Moorish influence—leavened with a bit of the brand-spanking-new. The modern airport, complete with Muzak, represents "progress." Once outside, however, the paved streets are covered with sand and lead to extremely basic hotels. On t...


Overview Introduction Mauritania's capital city (pop. 800,000) offers an interesting view of West Africa and a wide variety of hotel accommodations. We suggest a one-day stay to take in the markets, sandy streets and colorful people. Two mosques are open to tourists: the Grande Mosque and the Fri...


Noumea, New Caledonia, sits on the southwestern coast of the main island 70 mi/115 km northwest of Ile des Pins. Noumea is the territory's largest city and its capital. Noumea is also very French, from the wrought-iron balconies to the sidewalk cafes. Its four tree-lined squares, colonial homes an...


Overview Introduction Nuristan is one of the country's most unusual and inaccessible regions. Set in striking mountains near the territory of Kashmir (whose ownership is a matter of hot dispute), this dramatic, forested area is dotted with wooden hillside homes. The Greek god Dionysus figures pro...

Nova Scotia

Though Nova Scotia is a land tied intrinsically to boating and the sea, the best way to see it today is by car. The province is divided into six tourist areas: Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley, Northumberland Shore, Cape Breton Island, Eastern Shore, South Shore, and Yarmouth and Acadian Shores. Th...


The city of Velikiy (Great) Norvgorod, Russia, 100 mi/160 km southeast of St. Petersburg, is more than 1,100 years old. At one time it competed with Moscow for domination of Old Russia. Today, it's primarily modern and industrial, but still retains a well-preserved Kremlin and old city center. See S...

Novi Sad

The city of Novi Sad, Serbia, sits on the Danube River, 50 mi/80 km by road northwest of Belgrade. Novi Sad offers a number of historical attractions, including the main orthodox church, with iconostasis created by Paja Jovanovic; the Muzej Vojvodine, a history museum; the University of Novi Sad; a...

Nuba Mountains

Overview Introduction Travel to this region southwest of Khartoum is very dangerous. Relief agencies have been barred from working there, and conflict in the area has been the focus of human-rights reports, which have alleged the presence of kidnapping and slave trading. The situation is extremel...

Nuevo Laredo

Across the Rio Grande from Laredo, Texas, Nuevo Laredo is very large and has one of the prettiest town plazas in a Mexican border town with some good handicrafts shops. In fact, it used to be the largest shopping mecca anywhere along the border outside of Tijuana. The city is also home to the famous...

Nui Atoll

Overview Introduction The people of Nui form the only Micronesian community in Polynesian Tuvalu. This was the first island to be seen by Europeans (some Spaniards sailed past in 1568).

Nuku Hiva

Taiohae on the south coast of Nuku Hiva, 875 mi/1,400 km northeast of Tahiti, is the administrative center for French Polynesia's Marquesas Islands. Many 19th-century vestiges of French colonialism can be seen around this small town, alongside recent reproductions of old Polynesian art. The Notre-Da...

Nukufetau Atoll

Overview Introduction Of the nine Tuvalu islands and atolls, only Nukufetau and Funafuti have passages through their coral rings large enough to allow ships and yachts to enter the lagoon. That alone should put Nukufetau on the itinerary of visiting yachtsmen. During World War II, the U.S. forces...

Nukulaelae Atoll

Overview Introduction Easternmost of the Tuvalu islands, Nukulaelae was the first island to accept Christianity. That conversion happened after a lost Cook Island canoeist washed ashore in 1861. A few years later, less-scrupulous visitors kidnapped many of the islanders by pretending to invite th...


Imagine a strip of coastline with offshore islands the size of California and an interior dotted with lakes that don't even have names. Nunavut, one of Canada's three territories, is a fledgling tourist destination. It has a smattering of towns with not a single traffic light among them, and in many...


Located 103 mi/166 km northwest of Munich, Nuremberg, Germany, is an interesting mix of the quaint and the cosmopolitan.

Nusa Dua

Overview Introduction Once a barren, sparsely populated strip of coast, Nusa Dua is now one of Bali's—and the world's—most luxurious beach resorts.
