  1. Bistro Zinc bar

    Bistro Zinc: Lenox, Massachusetts

    $0.00

    Everyone should visit The Berkshires at least one time in their life. I have visited over 50 times and also had the luxury of living there. The historic downtown of Lenox is a beautiful start to experience the richness of the Berkshires. Tanglewood is very close by and that is a perfect place to enjoy the musical magic here.

    The Hamptons - Long Island, NY

    $0.00

    America's East Coast Riviera, that's how locals feel about the Hamptons.Then again, there are locals, and locals.  The real locals are the people of Long Island who live in the Hamptons year around.  The other "locals" are rich owners and renters who inhabit from May till September.  New Yorkers, for some strange reason, have come to regard summer as that time between Memorial Day (third Monday in May), and Labor Day, first Monday in September.  So, every piece of action is crammed into three oh so short, super-revved up months of summer.

    Postcard from Penny – Putting on a Face in Myanmar (Burma)

    $0.00

    Like women all over the world, cosmetic makeup plays an important part in preparing for my day whether I am heading off to work in the city, traveling internationally or just gardening at home. Let's face it - none of us want to look one day older than we already are! With the use of a little foundation to even out my tone and especially with the addition of an SP factor, I am also protecting my skin against the hash effects of the sun.

    Comfort Inn & Suites: Grenada, Mississippi

    $0.00

    Recently we had the unfortunate need to travel to Beaumont, Texas for a family funeral.  Since this amounted to a journey of 950 miles each way, it was imperative for us to stop for the night along our route.  We were looking for somewhere to divide up the trip into a two day drive, and Grenada, Mississippi was a little more than half-way.

    Bavarian Inn: Frankenmuth, Michigan

    $0.00

    Baby its cold outside – what a perfect time to pack up the grand kids or just yourself and head to Michigan and the Bavarian Inn. If traveling to Germany with the family is not an option this year, then have no fear, this will satisfy the thirst until then. The Inn is a family run business from the ground up, so great care is taken to make you feel welcome, comfortable and well fed. Here's what the President, Judy Zehnder Keller had to say, “Family is everything to us. My mother Dorothy, at nearly age 91, is still very active in the kitchen, my brother Bill and I along with our spouses oversee the restaurant and lodge. We both have two of our children in the business, nearly nine family members in senior management at this time. There are four in the fourth generation, four in the third generation and one in the second generation. It is a blessing and an honor to work with family.” I don't know about you, but this is the kind of place that I want to visit.

    Milano : Fashion Capital of Italy

    $0.00

    Milan is the fashion capital of Italy, if not the world.  Many plan trips to Milan just to indulge in the many shops that sell high quality leather purses, shoes and clothing.There is always something for everyone and I have found their clothing and leather goods to be very reasonable and of high quality.  For women, even in the local grocery store, one can pick up non-run hosiery that will last for months!

  11. Hotel for Book Lovers: Portland, Oregon

    Hotel for Book Lovers: Portland, Oregon

    $0.00

    It's always a good idea to read a book – do people even do that anymore? I think the Baby Boomers still do! If you fit that bill, then I have a great place for you to check out. It's the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland, Oregon. Located a few blocks from the Riverfront, 2 blocks from the Max Light Rail Train and darn near all the great shops, restaurants and galleries that this city has to offer, this hotel has 150 rooms and something else that is quite unique – a library, and not just any library. They house a “collection of 2,700 books signed by authors who have been guests at the hotel including past presidents, poet laurites and Pulitzer Prize winners.” The Library is open 24 hours a day and every Monday-Thursday from 5:00-6:00PM, you can attend an evening social for reading and complimentary wine.

    Tom+Chee: Louisville, KY

    $0.00

    I love to find unusual places to dine, that are complete fun and also very affordable. When I think about Tom+Chee, I think goody goody, skippy do da! Trew and Corey, two very humble guys, had so many great experiences leading them up to this dream becoming true. They started serving good ole grilled cheese from a tent in Cincinnati and then were able to open their first shop. These two guys are making a huge splash in the food industry and it sounds like they are becoming a grilled cheese empire! They blew out into a lot of national press and had success on the show I adore, Shark Tank!

    Villa Urbani: Rome

    $0.00

    I feel like I need to whisper about this property, because it's a secret that I'm about to reveal. Assuming you have traveled to Rome in the past and have stayed in the center of it all, here’s a real jewel about 30 minutes away from the action. The Villa Urbani is nestled on a residential street about 15 minutes from the Trastevere area. It is a Villa that dates from the 1900's and is still a family residence that has been partially converted into a Bed and Breakfast.

    Dog Bark Park Inn: Cottonwood, Idaho

    $0.00

    One of Susie’s doggie buddies out west told her about a giant Beagle wandering around in Idaho. You can’t help but wonder if Paul Bunyan and Babe are also nearby. We decided to check it out and discovered the Dog Bark Park Inn in Cottonwood, Idaho where you can stay and relax comfortably in the doghouse – a bed and breakfast built as a giant wood Beagle. Susie’s daddy calls it the “Trojan Beagle.”

  19. How Giving Back Changed a Journey Around the World

    How Giving Back Changed a Journey Around the World

    $0.00

    I like to joke that I know a little bit about retirement, even though I’m in my mid-thirties and definitely not retired. Five years ago, at the age of thirty, I left my 9-5 job, sold all my stuff, and dragged my husband on an open-ended trip around the world with me. I think back on those days now with an incredible amount of fondness. Not only did we reap all of the expected gifts of travel—cultural insights, exposure to beautiful locations, introductions to new friends and places—but we also learned about the lesser known gifts travel offers, like experiencing the kindness of people around the world first-hand.

    $0.00

    The children are grown and are now parents of their own children. Yes, grandparenting is a joy! But long distances, and complex work and study schedules, often hinder family get-togethers and staying in close contact. Unless we are lucky enough to see the grandchildren on a weekly basis, each reunion is almost like meeting them for the first time.

    On Patrol on 31-W from Michigan to Alabama: Swope Car Museum

    $0.00

    Let’s get off the interstate and “Go on Patrol!!” Today we are traveling on 31W, one of the original north south routes that run parallel to I-65 from Michigan to Alabama. On a car lot in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, we found Swope’s Cars of Yesteryear Museum. It is without a doubt the best free Car Museum in the U.S. Owner, Bill Swope, has collected and put on display 60 cars built between 1900 and 1970. They have been lovingly restored in every detail. I am a collector (not of cars) so I’m in total awe at what Mr. Swope has accomplished. He has found many totally original cars that are in “like new” condition.

    A Charmer in the Heart of Knoxville - The Oliver: Knoxville, Tennessee

    $0.00

    Knoxville is a city filled with southern charm, history and hospitality, so staying in a chain hotel would be out of the question. However, there is one boutique hotel in town and it’s a gem. Visit The Oliver, located on Market Square in the heart of downtown. Built in 1876 by German immigrant Peter Kern, it was a bakery and retail outlet of sorts. Peter was a man with a vision, and he is remembered today by the bar located in the hotel. It’s known as the Peter Kern Library Bar. It has a speakeasy vibe that serves up old school cocktails. The drink menus are hidden in old World Book Encyclopedias (Boomers will remember those – I still have mine!) This alone is a reason to stay here.

    Driveway Camping

    $0.00

    There’s plenty of reasons we love RV’ing, and the list got a little longer in the weeks following Hurricane Sandy. Many RVers offered their rigs as temporary shelter to embattled East Coast residents. Power, heat, refrigerator, and sleeping quarters all in a rolling relief package. Bravo to the kind souls who lent out their campers to those in need!
