Side Trips from Stockholm Travel Guide

- Fodor's Choice
Stockholm is a green, lively, and pleasant city—that cannot be denied. But travel a little farther from town and you will see why even Stockholmers make a regular and even hurried exit from their city on summer weekends. Immediately outside of Stockholm is the archipelago, meaning paradise on earth to a Swede with a boat and some time to kill. You can get lost among the many thousands of islands and skerries. As you'll see, pleasures here are simple: sunbathing on a rock, dipping in the chilly Baltic, enjoying a simple meal in a local bistro, and lazily watching the sun sink below the horizon.
