Indoor attractions in Milwaukee

Milwaukee might not be the first place to come to mind when planning a weekend of museum and market hopping, but not going means missing out on a cultural hub of the American Midwest. Milwaukee is often overshadowed by its nearby neighbor Chicago, but Wisconsin’s largest city is a standout in its own right. Despite wicked winter weather, it’s a historically rich city, and there’s no shortage of good beer, cool art, and unique things to see and do to boot. Don’t let Milwaukee’s notorious winte...

Phoenix light rail trip planner

Phoenix is a sprawling city. A zigzag of freeways loop through and around the desert metropolis, and it’s all too easy to spend more time driving, not to mention parking and fighting over directions, than doing. Sure, there’s Uber and Lyft, but all those rideshares can add up fast. Enter the Valley Metro Rail, a 26-mile ride that stretches from central Phoenix to Tempe and downtown Mesa, past hip hangouts, playful boutiques, rave-worthy restaurants, underground bars, and even a lake. The line...

Therapy alpacas at CA nursing home

The COVID-19 pandemic is making it impossible for families and friends to visit their loved ones in nursing homes, meaning most family interactions must take place digitally or from behind windows. This is contributing to the already serious loneliness many nursing home patients experience, so facilities are looking for ways to creatively and safely improve the morale of their elderly residents. On April 29, 2020, in Poway, California, the Boulder Creek Post Acute assisted living center brigh...

Arrested camping on Disney island

It’s the most tried and true excuse out of the trespasser’s handbook: “I didn’t know I was trespassing.” That was roughly the excuse of this Alabama man who was arrested last Thursday for camping out at Walt Disney World’s Discovery Island (originally called Treasure Island). According to the arrest report, the man “stated that he had made entry to the island to go camping on Monday or Tuesday and had planned on staying on the island for approximately one week.” To his credit, a deserted Dis...

The best international LGBTQ movies

Queer culture is often sold as a one-size-fits-all stereotype even when the stereotype clearly doesn’t fit. To assume every LGBTQ person worships at the throne of Cher and can be categorized as either a “Jack” or a “Will” makes an ass of “u” and “me.” Travel is an excellent antidote used to dispel these myths, but even the most experienced traveler can’t adequately capture the essence of LGBTQ life in all corners of the world. That’s where movies come in. On the silver screen, viewers visit...

Americans want to work remotely

The pandemic will prove to be a catalyst for many changes once life returns to normal, but one of the most obvious ones is the work-from-home movement.

New Zealand-Australia travel bubble

In most cases, that has meant closing borders and imposing 14-day quarantines on incoming travelers.

Your camping drink of choice could be attracting mosquitoes

Camping and drinking are natural companions. A cold one by the fire, a bottle of wine on the campsite table, or a quick whiskey nightcap can make the great outdoors even greater. But your drink can complicate things with another natural camping companion: mosquitoes. The evidence seems to suggest that, all other factors being equal, your outdoor beverage of choice attracts mosquitoes — especially if that beverage is beer. A 2002 study from researchers in Tokyo found that the number of mosquit...
