How to make the most of your one-day visit to COSI in Columbus, Ohio

Despite being the biggest city in Ohio, Columbus is still vastly underappreciated. Most know it as home of the Ohio State University, but beyond football games it still flies a little under the radar. Perhaps its most underrated asset is The Center for Science and Industry (COSI), a massive, three-story, 320,000-square-foot hands-on interactive museum set in what was once Columbus Central High School. It’s a place where you can immerse yourself in the world of dinosaurs, ride a unicycle acros...

How to have a more authentic Caribbean experience on Grand Cayman

An online image search for Grand Cayman suggests that the island’s tourism appeal is limited to swimming with the stingrays, cruise ships, and a single strip of sand that runs along the island’s western shoreline — Seven Mile Beach. While there is no doubt that the luxury high-rise hotels and fancy restaurants lining this beach are the main attraction for many tourists, more intrepid travelers find that a trip to the lesser-known eastern districts of East End and Northside offers a more authe...

At this Costa Rica hideaway, the real luxury is seeing abundant and rare wildlife

Cahuita is a small, unassuming town on Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast. It may not be for everyone, but it’s perfect for those who choose wildlife over nightlife and prefer a basic cabana on an untamed stretch of sand to a luxury resort. In Cahuita the jungle-backed beach is left as nature intended and is devoid of sun-lounging tourists. From tree frogs to sloths, wildlife is abundant – you never know what you might spot in the trees as you stroll along the dirt track which runs alongside the bea...

If you were single going into the pandemic, my heart truly goes out to you. 2020 and early 2021 were perhaps the worst months in human history for meeting people.

Delta and United Set Schedules Until the Holidays, Frontier Goes Capacity Crazy

On the surface, the Cirium data made it look like a relatively quiet week in Airlineville. Maybe they were all masked up, isolating in their homes just like I was. Or maybe they were quietly hatching plans for the future. It was most certainly the latter for both the Widget and the Globe. It may not have looked like much, but they both seem to have made their plans all the way until the holidays hit in December. That just seems so far away. Meanwhile, the Animal behaved like a fast-grow...
