Minneapolis: Try the architect- and artist-designed greens at the Walker Art Center. Tee off in the sculpture garden at two eight-hole courses, which include a small-scale version of the Château de Bagatelle, an Ames Room course and a foosball table, among other creative putting greens. It’s open through Sept. 8.

San Francisco: Plan on a fall trip to the de Young Museum for a gander at Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery and other priceless gems at The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950-1990. The exhibition includes almost 150 necklaces, bracelets and earrings made by the Italian jeweller. Opens Sept. 21.

Antwerp: Ellis is a fast-food joint where some of Belgium’s finest foodies helped craft the menu. Order “The Meatlover by Dierendonck,” created by celebrity butcher Hendrik Dierendonck, if you want to try West Flanders red beef. W-renowned cheesemonger Michel Van Tricht and Son adds Torta de Oveja to the cheeseburger.

London: If you’ve got boutique tastes but a bargain budget, check into Nadler Soho. Housed in a renovated 19th-century warehouse, the hotel has 78 rooms that range widely in size and price. Complimentary perks include WiFi and 30 minutes of local and national calls per day. Rates start at $22.
