Copan, Honduras

Copan, Honduras

A pretty little town with cobblestone streets lined with adobe buildings, a laid back lifestyle and the ruins of a once great Mayan city, Copán Ruinas is a delightful place to relax and get away from it all for a few days, weeks, months, or even years.

Charleston, SC

Charleston, SC

During the seventeen days when the annual Spoleto Festival reigns, art aficionados flock to Charleston for back-to-back premieres of new works of theater, music and dance.

Backcountry in the Grand Canyon

Backcountry in the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon brings to mind expansive vistas of tawny stone, mule trains and moonlit sunsets, but hordes of travelers rarely invade the stereotype.

County Cork, Ireland

County Cork, Ireland

Just far enough from Dublin to be off the beaten path, the charming County Cork is well worth a leisurely exploration with its picturesque views, culinary delights and historical monuments.

Willamette Valley

Willamette Valley

The fertile rolling hills southwest of Portland, Oregon are home to some of the best wines in America. Lacking the masses drawn to many other wine regions, the bucolic Willamette Valley may be America’s most civilized wine region. The Oregon wine country is the polar opposite of Napa or Long Island. It is quiet, with […]

Galapagos Islands Live Up to the Hype

Galapagos Islands Live Up to the Hype

No destination is more deserving of a spot on your “‘Things To Do Before I Die”’ list than the Galapagos Islands. An archipelago in the Pacific Ocean about 400 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the volcanic islands and islets that make up the Galapagos truly live up to the hype. Of course, it’s where […]

Rabat, Morocco

Rabat, Morocco’s capital city, is flush with history and culture unbeknownst to the many Morocco-bound tourists who flock to Tangiers and Casablanca. For those who venture off the beaten path, however, Rabat will prove just as rewarding.
