Life on the Mississippi

15 January 2001
The town Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer made famous, Hannibal, Missouri, is still there, perched at the edge of the Mississippi River. Mark Twain would have no trouble finding his boyhood home, a white clapboard house, just a short stroll up from the levee. Even the downtown looks pretty much like it did in the last century, except for the paved streets and the advent of the automobile. ... (read more)
 

Happily Sleepless in Seattle

26 November 2000
Seattle is as much a state of mind as it is a destination. Just ask the folks who gave us Starbucks Coffee, Grunge Rock and Microsoft. I suspect there must be something in the marine mist that sweeps across Puget Sound that provides Seattle with its defiant character. Come what may, this city can handle it. ... (read more)
 

Renew Yourself: Visit the Heartland

11 September 2000
It’s a day only Lady Luck could conjure. Azure skies, low humidity, balmy breezes. The day literally beckons you outside. Dad wants a round of golf. Mom is thinking about gardens. And the kids...they just want something fun to do. Surprisingly, such a place exists. ... (read more)
 

Step Back in Time at Historic Cape May

26 August 2000
Dangling from the side of New Jersey like a vulnerable appendix, Cape May has somehow withstood the scalpel of hurricanes ripping up the East Coast. Situated at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, this little Victorian town was almost destroyed, not by gale force winds, but by Time itself. Like Atlantic City, she too received a reprieve. ...

Gambling and Gamboling in Connecticut

29 July 2000
There is no doubt about it, Connecticut is schizophrenic. On the one hand, it suffers from urban eyesore, traffic snarls on the interstates, and that all-American blight, sprawling shopping malls and outlet centers. Yet get off I-95 and within five minutes you are in a ... (read more)
 

I'm High on Asheville

24 June 2000
Slung like a giant hammock across the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville, North Carolina invites the visitor to take it easy, sip a little Southern sweet tea, and mosey, not hurry, through its hilly streets. This is the South at its best. For years, Asheville was one of America's better kept secrets. No more. ... (read more)
 

The Turquoise Trail

25 May 2000
Dashing to the next destination on our vacation usually defeats the very reason we chose to go there in the first place, to soak up its flavor. As more and more interstates bisect our country, making it so easy to get from here to there fast, we have lost a lot along the way. When Route 66 was gobbled up by I-40, not only were little towns orphaned, but a piece of America was diminished. ... (read more)
 

Santa Fe Haunts

10 April 2000
No matter where I wander, Santa Fe haunts me, calling me back, and I have returned five times, hoping to understand what lures me to this high desert city. While driving up I-25 from Albuquerque across the Southwest desert corralled by a sky without end, I still get the wobblies, that feeling that only city-folk can truly experience. ... (read more)
