If you’re longing to spend more time out on the water, Forbes Travel Guide’s editors recommend boarding a ferry for Tallinn, Estonia; prepare to be delighted by this Baltic capital’s winding Old Town. After a few hours of visiting the soaring churches and posing by the panoramic views on Toompea Hill, head to Elevant, a unique Indian-Estonian fusion restaurant that serves tangy wild boar curries and moose kebabs. After a bit of shopping, stop for a latte and chocolate truffle at Kehrwieder Café in Raekoja Plats before jumping back on the ferry in time for a stunning sunset over the sea. Several tour operators in Helsinki offer packaged excursions to Tallinn, but most of the ferry companies also have special rates for day trips if you’d rather set your own agenda.
