Destination: Beautiful Brussels In Wintertime

Brussels, Belgium. What a fantastic city. This European capital is booming and is a “must” on any well-traveled individual’s destination list for 2015. Why? Eclectic architecture, beautiful town squares, charming restaurants, avant-garde fashion and the best chocolate you’ll ever taste are all just a few reasons. But, above all else, Brussels is easy. Visitors can effortlessly make their way through the city by foot, explore cultural highlights and still have time to sit down with a plate of Moules-frites and french fries. Brussels is magical – there is an air here that is different than nearby Paris or Amsterdam. This week we will curate our favorites from this small Belgian gem and show you why now is the exact right time to go.
