Jim Thorpe, PA, USA
When my friends and I were the only people left in New York City last Memorial Day weekend, we impulsively jumped in the car and headed for the closest available campsite in the Poconos at Mauch Chunk Lake. Two days of hiking, canoeing, and...
1519 PA-903, Jim Thorpe, PA 18229, USA
If you're camping in the Poconos you have to take the time to hike up these waterfalls. It's a long trip to the top that's surprisingly tiring--and slippery--but so worth the views. And please don't pass up jumping in after all that effort; it's...
Deepwell Estates, Palm Springs, CA 92264, USA
A scooter is not the most practical way to get around Palm Springs, but it is the best way. Briefly, the cons: senior citizens in boat-like cars & steep hills that defy kickstands. Now, the pros: there's nothing but palm trees between you & the...

Palm Springs, CA, USA
If you're in the Palm Springs area, I highly recommend checking out Tahquitz Canyon! It's a beautiful, moderate hike through the canyon and you have the chance to see wildlife, plants and Native American artifacts. However, the highlight of this...
Palm Springs, CA, USA
officially titled "Forever Marilyn" this 26 foot statue serves as a reminder of the 50s-60s heyday of this desert oasis community. Palm Springs (and the surrounding towns) are still as popular as ever, if not more, with golfers, snowbirds, chic...
Mount San Jacinto, California, USA
Most wouldn't suspect, but the largest mountain escarpment (continual rise) in the lower 48 states is the 10,834 foot Mt. San Jacinto on the western edge of Palm Springs, CA. Leaving from behind the Palm Springs Art Museum, the Skyline Trail...

Café Du Monde is always open; it’s the clientele that changes—from visiting families and local pensioners early in the morning, to couples in the evening, to Bourbon Street refugees looking for coffee and ballast in the...
RI-138, Jamestown, RI 02835, USA
Every year in November, the Rhode Island Road Runners Club hosts the Bridge Run: The only chance pedestrians have to run (or walk) over one of the most iconic bridges in New England. The sun rises in your eyes as you charge up the slope at 6:30 in...
Cliff Walk, Newport, RI 02840, USA
Ah, the Cliff Walk... A must when visiting Newport in good weather. The views of the ocean are amazing and complimented by the gorgeous homes that line the rocky, walled coast. Take your time - the "path" can get a little dicey in areas (e.g....
315 Sachuest Point Rd, Middletown, RI 02842, USA
The second beach of Newport Rhode Island is one of the nice beach to go in summer in northeast. The sand is very smooth and the beach is clean. A lot of activities going on the beach, sand castles are taking to the advance level - it's like the 7...
