  • Kentucky Bourbon Trail: Part One

    Just as Dorothy followed the Yellow Brick Road, bourbon neophytes and aficionados alike can pursue a similar storied path: the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

  • DIY Network's Marnie Oursler Shares 33 of Her Travel Tips

    One of my favorite ways to find inspiration is travel. There's something about the disorientation and magic of a new place that allows me to see things more clearly or in a completely different light. Travel is good for the mind, body, and soul, and the memories made are more valuable than any material possession. And in addition to being inspiring, traveling is a great reminder that no matter how different we may seem, we're all very much the same at heart.

    That's why I've made it my mission to cram as much traveling into this one life as possible. I've been lucky to be able to see the world for business, education, and for personal fun, and on my many travels, I've picked up a few important insights (some of which I learned the hard way). So before you set off for your next destination this summer, check out my hard-won travel tips, below, that will help you get the most out of your trip.

  • Terrorism – A Travel Threat?

    WASHINGTON—As the busiest three months of international travel approach, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encourages travelers to “Know Before You Go” when traveling to the United States or returning home this summer. CBP officers at international airports, cruise terminals and land border ports of entry around the country and at Preclearance facilities around the world are prepared for the additional traffic expected this summer. Last summer, CBP processed more than 108.3 million international travelers at U.S. ports of entry.
