3. Tucson, AZ, Highlights
Tucson gives you mountain views, desert landscapes, sunny skies and upscale resorts. An extra bonus: you can learn about Cold War secrets. Don’t miss the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Titan Missile Museum, or a stay at The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa.
4. 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.
5. Turtle Beach, Friendly Barbados Resort
Turtle Beach Resort provides couples and families a welcoming all-inclusive option in often pricey Barbados. The resort is large enough to offer multiple pools, children’s program, water sports center, and a specialty restaurant, but not large enough to feel like a mini-city on the sand.
6. Tips on How to Fly with your Pet
Should you take your dog or cat on an airplane? If your pet can’t be in the cabin with you, then don’t put him on the plane. That’s the advice of the Humane Society of the United States, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and many other pet organizations.
7. Visit Annapolis, MD, in Fall
Fall is our favorite time to explore Annapolis, MD. The crisp weather and the colorful foliage make a walk through the historic district especially appealing and the weather is still warm enough for sailing or cruise tour.
8. Hang Gliding, History and the Outer Banks, NC
Learn to hang glide, time travel back to the 16th century, plus swim and sun on dune bordered beaches in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a strip of narrow barrier islands off the state’s coast that stretch for 125-miles.
9. DC Cupcakes: The Sweet Lobby
Enhance your Capitol Hill visit with a treat from The Sweet Lobby, a new boutique bakery that opened in June 2011. The shop justifiably gains fame for winning its own hard-won race: a February 2012 contest on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.
10. 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.
