Mackinac Island Fudge

Mackinac Island Fudge isn’t a flavor: it’s a way of life for these Mackinac Island candy makers. Here’s how it’s made and how to choose the fudge that’s right for you.

Blue Ice, Patagonia

I never expected the blue. Living in a land where ice comes in shades of white and off-gray, the brilliant blues and violets of Glacier Grey were startling, invigorating, in the heart of Patagonia.

Looking for Mayberry

Riding back roads through rural North Carolina, we happened across a bit of our childhoods, wrapped up inside the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy, his hometown.

A Superior Sunset

In June, sunset comes late to Isle Royale National Park, as it’s the westernmost point in the Eastern Time Zone. The sun spread an array of colors across the sky as it sank into Lake Superior.

Auto Know Lake City

It takes a real car guy to find these offbeat treasure troves of auto-related antiques scattered around the quiet little city of Lake City in North Florida.

Springtime in Corfu

A profusion of color bursts forth in spring on the island of Corfu, Greece. With verdant forests and colorful wildflowers, Corfu is not a barren jumble of rocks, but a place where nature’s fireworks add a glorious touch to the backdrop of the Ionian Sea.

The British Museum

Founded in 1753, the British Museum is the world’s first national public museum. Filled with priceless antiquities, it is a must-see on your next trip to London.

Sailing Yorktown

On our visit to Yorktown, I saw the city as the French first did in 1781, when the fleet of Admiral De Grassein arrived to support General Washington’s attack on Yorktown.

The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown

It’s not often that you get a behind-the-scenes look at a museum before it opens. The new 80,000 square foot American Revolution Museum at Yorktown should open later this year.

Fall Color on Skyline Drive

Enjoy the glorious colors of autumn leaves along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park in October. The 105-mile historic parkway offers unparalleled vistas.

The Rainforest

It fell as if scripted. But this was the real thing, and to feel the thunderous power of the Panamanian rainforest was a wondrous thing, from our front-row seats on our balcony at Gamboa Resort.
