Bodrum, Turkey

Bodrum defines what makes the Aegean coast of Turkey so amazing. The ruins of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, are said to have provided some of the building materials for Bodrum Castle. Hidden within the medieval fortress is an Underwater Archaeology Museum featuring exhibits on shipwrecks and Turkish nautical history. When you're not relaxing on the beautiful beaches, take a walk down Cumhuriyet Street, aka Bodrum Bar Street, to enjoy the many shops, clubs, and street food vendors.
