SOCHI, RUSSIA: SATURDAY, JULY 3 — 8am – 8pm

A Black Sea resort, this “Russian Riviera” lies in a tiny portion of Russia whose subtropical climate makes it a sought-after regional vacation destination. Sochi City’s balmy temperatures and picturesque sunsets made for an ironic world debut as the host of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Sochi is now a year-round hotspot due to its vibrant nightlife, impeccable views, and quick access to the spectacular hiking trails of Agura Valley.
