Florida’s Nature Coast: Weeki Wachee, Homosassa Springs, Yankeetown

It was an embarrassing lapse. Despite decades of living and traveling throughout Florida, neither my husband nor I had ever seen the famous Weeki Wachee mermaids. Nor had we visited their isolated home habitat, the Nature Coast, that spreads across nine rural counties north of Tarpon Springs to just past the Panhandle’s deep western curve. Once known as the state’s “lonesome leg...

Memorial Day 2017: Travelers will hit highest level since 2005

If you plan to travel Memorial Day weekend, expect a lot of company. A whole lot. AAA said more than 39.3 million people are planning a holiday trip at least 50 miles from home - the most since 2005 and a 2.7 percent increase over last year. Of those, travelers, 34.6 million - or 88.1 percent - will drive to their destination. “We think it’s because of the increase in wages,” said...
Slipping into an ‘Ocean State’ of mind in southern Rhode Island

Slipping into an ‘Ocean State’ of mind in southern Rhode Island

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — I tasted the ocean in the air as I sat on the outdoor deck at Matunuck Oyster Bar, the ebbing tide draining a few feet from our table into the Great Salt Pond and from there to the sea. Littlenecks were ordered. A cold beer had just arrived. I sipped, and it occurred to me that maybe I shouldn’t write this story. Why share the lovely little secret that is the rest...

20 brilliant ways to save on summer travel

With eco-travel's increasing popularity, green claims merit skepticism

Green may not be the most fashionable color this spring, considering the recent policy shift in Washington on climate change. But it's still the "in" thing for many travelers.  A survey by the Singapore-based online travel agency Agoda.com found that 58 percent of hotel guests preferred staying at an environmentally friendly property. Nearly 40 percent said they're willing to spend...

A Greensboro hotel makes climate-conscious travelers swoon

A Greensboro hotel makes climate-conscious travelers swoon

In one sense, the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina, shouts its environmental bona fides from the rooftop.  One of the first sights that greet guests as they turn in to an otherwise nondescript office park off Green Valley Road are the 100 solar panels perched atop the handsome hotel, which from afar looks like an old textile warehouse lovingly brought back to life.   Visitors...
A guide to Paris for repeat visitors

A guide to Paris for repeat visitors

“Where are the fan dancers?” I wondered aloud as I descended into a cave-like nightclub-cum-cabaret on the Left Bank. My friends and I sat down across from one another at a long table that spanned the rock-walled room. It was after midnight, and save for one other tipsy group, we had the place to ourselves. At the far end of the room, beyond an archway, was a small stage at table height...
A botanist in Swedish Lapland

A botanist in Swedish Lapland

The plan was to retrace part of a journey that Carl Linnaeus made in 1732 when he was 25, from Uppsala, just north of Stockholm, to the northernmost region of Sweden, known as Swedish Lapland. Linnaeus kept a detailed journal of his travels, often called his “Lapland Journal,” with maps of the mountains, rivers and lakes, drawings and his squiggly handwriting.  I came to Swedish Lapland...

Summer 2017 Guide: Top staycation spots in Palm Beach County

Summer 2017 Guide: Top staycation spots in Palm Beach County

Dream vacations to exotic locales can be nice. But let’s be honest: When you have kids, taking the “classic” weeklong family vacation — frantically getting to the airport gate, praying for peace in Row 29 of coach, herding everyone over to the rental-car place — can be overwhelming. And let’s not forget, those trips get expensive. Just stay at home for the summer...

More air travelers are expected to fly this summer despite airline incidents

A record 234.1 million passengers are expected to fly on U.S.-based carriers this summer, apparently not dissuaded by a series of customer-relations blowups in recent weeks.  Airlines for America, which represents the airline industry, attributes the projected 4 percent increase in summer travel to improving economic conditions, higher household net worth and lower airfares.   To accommodate...

Can this contraption really help you sleep on a plane?

Ephi Zlotnitsky landed in Washington as a 22-year-old immigrant from Israel on a July Saturday in 1989.  The next day, the former Israel paratrooper, who barely spoke English, walked into a local kosher deli and got a job. As he recalls it: "The owner said, 'I don't have a job for you.' I said, 'I'm not leaving.' He asked me, what can I do?"   "Whatever you want,"...

Cool cruises around Iceland

A summer cruise around Iceland is an ideal way to appreciate the country’s landscape, which includes geysers, waterfalls and glaciers. Diane Eide, an Iceland specialist at Travel Experts, said such a trip was “a convenient way to see much of the country because driving from place to place takes a lot of time.” An Iceland cruise is also relatively affordable, with good values to be...

'Migrant Mother' photographer's images of oppressed resonate

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Dorothea Lange was driving by a pea pickers' camp on the California coast when she stumbled across a weary mother and her many children huddled in a lean-to.  It was 1936, during the throes of the Great Depression, and Lange took out her camera.   The image she titled "Migrant Mother" became the late photographer's most famous work, capturing the...

Tourists return to Tunisia, but slowly

Simon Marsov, a 25-year-old management consultant from Moscow, flew to the resort town of Sousse, Tunisia, on the Mediterranean last summer because he wanted to experience a foreign place on the cheap.  Lalioui Faouzi, a 26-year-old dentist from Algiers, said he made the 11-hour drive in late summer to Hammamet, another resort on Tunisia’s east coast, because the hotels were cheaper than...

How to earn travel rewards without a credit card

Credit card averse? You’re not alone. According to a recent study from Bankrate, 35 percent of adults ages 30 and over don’t have a credit card.  The bad news is, not having a travel credit card does make it more difficult to earn travel rewards — that is, unless you travel often enough to rack up loyalty points by the thousands.   While having a travel credit card...

Sharkwatching: With more sharks and better tech, it’s the latest craze

Mark Girardeau hovered his drone above the water in Dana Point, Calif., looking for movement.  Then he saw it: A dark figure darting swiftly; a fin piercing the ocean’s surface.   “I got one,” he shouted out as he zoomed in on the great white, swimming just yards from shore. On the sand, other lookie-loos clutched cell phones, trying to capture images of the sharks...

JFK's DC: A guide to the haunts and hangouts

WASHINGTON - John Fitzgerald Kennedy's 100th birthday is May 29. It's hard to think of the 35th president - the youngest ever elected to the office and 46 years old when he was assassinated - anywhere near that age. Kennedy was president for just 1,036 days, but in a 2013 Gallup poll, 50 years after his death, 74 percent of Americans ranked his presidency as "outstanding" or "above...

All artsy things going on in DC for the JFK centennial celebration

WASHINGTON - John F. Kennedy's appreciation for the arts led him to invite Robert Frost to read a poem at his 1961 inauguration, and his namesake performing arts complex is leading the way in celebrating his 100th birthday.

In the early decades of the 20th century, Virginia Woolf and her friends, the artists, intellectuals and writers known as the Bloomsbury Group, left London and went — to work, to spend summers, to wait out the German bombing raids and to conduct their tangled romances — into the bucolic countryside of Sussex and Kent, now two hours by car southeast of the city.

There are no bad seats in Hamburg's concert hall

When plans were made for a new concert hall in Hamburg, local leaders placed acoustical refinement high on their list of priorities. But they also wanted an auditorium that was more "democratic" than traditional concert halls, where "good seats" in the front are more valued than "bad seats" at the back. "A hall without hierarchy" was an explicit goal of the...

Wellness springs eternal in Calistoga, Calif.

Old Faithful Geyser was showing off: spewing his endless stream of hot mineral water high into the blue sky.

In the late 19th century he was released from his primordial prison and has reigned intermittently...

Seasoned with salt: A look at Senegal's colorful Lac Rose

Not surprisingly, my tracksuit-wearing guide slid onto the back of his dromedary with great ease and aplomb, barely noticing that the camel let out a huff as he settled into the saddle, and lifted the rope that was attached to its jaw. I, meanwhile, was hesitant, gingerly stepping to the animal's side, leery of being spit on.  My camel was down on all fours and looked lethargic in the hot sand...
