There is something for everybody in busy New York City. I often get so caught up in planning a memorable and exciting vacation that I forget what makes a vacation memorable and exciting. Exploration, adventure and creativity called me to New York.

Philadelphia | Travel

By Kathryn Varnes

Philadelphia really is the “City of Brotherly Love.”  On a recent visit, I was struck by the genuine friendliness of the people, Uber drivers, hotel employees, historic area workers and people on the street. My husband even witnessed citizens dash into the road and in front of oncoming traffic to shield a Yorkie that, […]

Travel: Shades of Green in Ireland

Ireland
By Kathryn Varnes
Ireland is my favorite country. The people are amazingly friendly, spirited and they love Americans.
It is almost a cliché, but the Emerald Isle really is a patchwork of every shade of green – and then some – and each village or city has its own charming identity. Most visits begin in Dublin, as […]

Space Coast Water Sports

The Best in America (We Think)
Let’s get the obvious out of the way. Florida is predominantly water. We might be “The Sunshine State,” but whoever wrote that slogan was standing on a beach when they did.

We’re not just about the ocean though; we’ve got lakes, rivers, swamps and lagoons, too.
