Plan your airport layover with T+L's Airport Navigator
Unfortunately, sometimes I have an unavoidable mid-length layover at an airport - one that's too short for me to go out and explore the city and too long for me to just sit at the gate and wait for my next flight. At those times, I need to find something to do to keep my mind occupied. Often, this means that I end up wandering the unfamiliar airport for about an hour in search of something good to eat, before giving up and buying the next thing I see - usually an uninspired sandwich or a bag of chips.
Next time, I'll check Travel and Leisure's Airport Navigator for tips on my airport before I go. For each of 20 airports, T+L has put together a list of places to eat and drink, shop, things to see and do, and places to relax. They've covered several major hubs in Europe - London, Madrid, Rome, Paris, and Amsterdam among them - plus major Asian airports like Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo. They'll give you the scoop on Sydney, Cairo, Dubai, Johannesburg, Buenos Aires and Mexico City, along with info on Vancouver and Toronto in Canada, but coverage in the US is non-existent.
Along with listings of each airport attraction, the guide offers reviews, websites, hours and price ranges.
