Many travelers give Glasgow a miss, but that's a shame. Glasgow is a workaday Scottish city as well as a cosmopolitan destination, with an energetic dining and nightlife scene, top-notch museums, and a unique flair for art and design. It's also a pilgrimage site for architecture buffs, thanks to a cityscape packed with Victorian facades, bold new construction, and the beloved works by hometown visionary Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Edinburgh may have the royal aura, but Glasgow has a down-to-earth appeal.
