1. Inspiring Adventure Quotes
There are many quotes about adventure and adventure living, crazy and interesting, thought provoking and inspiring; here are some of my all-time favorites.
2. Shopping in Shanghai and Beijing, China
For those who consider shopping a trip essential, China is magic. The vendors at Shanghai’s and Beijing’s markets hawk everything—tea pots, Buddhas, pearl necklaces, scarves, jade bracelets, cheap watches, "designer bags," silk shawls and more. But you need to know where to look and how to shop.
3. Hiking China's Dragon Spine Rice Terraces
While Beijing mixes modern skyscrapers with ancient icons such as the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace, the Chinese countryside in the Longji region delivers natural scenes of legendary beauty as well as a chance to see how traditional people live.
4. Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest, Lynchburg, VA
Although Monticello is the house most associated with Thomas Jefferson, a visit to Jefferson’s other home—Poplar Forest, Lynchburg, VA,-- reveals much about the famed statesman. For Jefferson, Poplar Foresttook shape as a personal retreat, a place for solitude and renewal.
5. Bermuda Adventures
Bermuda has glorious pink sand beaches, British panache and more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Stroll the beaches, dive wrecks and float with schools of rainbow colored fish, swim with dolphins and explore historic forts.
6. Titanic Museum Attraction, Pigeon Forge, TN
The Titanic Museum Attraction, Pigeon Forge, TN, is a find. Shaped like the front half of the fated ship, the building looms over the parkway, forever foundering on its faux iceberg. “Tacky,” we assume, but we’re wrong. The museum delivers a tasteful retelling of the tragic story.
7. Sea Wonders, Nantucket, MA
Whale watching off Nantucket is both fun and rewarding. The island, reached by ferry or plane from the Massachusetts mainland, offers a nautical and nice getaway, one that’s low-key, but upmarket.
8. Caribbean: Why We Love It
The Caribbean is one of my family’s favorite destinations. Not just for the region’s spectacular palm-tree lined sands, conducive to lounging in the sun and lapping up the latest mystery novels, but for all the adventures and experiences we’ve shared on these islands.
9. Boston in Winter
Visit Boston in winter? Certainly. Weekend hotel rates drop from spring and summer highs, museums showcase new exhibits and theaters host new entertainment. You can also tack on a ski or tubing outing to a snowy hill within 60-minutes of the city.
