Travel: These 3 new restaurants make Las Vegas a winner for the budget conscious

Name a top-end dining trend this century and odds are it has found its way to a Las Vegas casino, served in a frou-frou designed room with $$$$ menus. That’s all well and good for high-rolling foodies, but for the rest of us, a different and welcome wrinkle has arrived: Vegas is becoming a beachhead for outposts of regional eateries that have blown up nationally by selling high-quality comfort food at low-to-moderate price points. While Las Vegas has had high-end restaurants for years, it ha...

Week 18: Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon and Monument Valley

I’ve been so fortunate to see places around the world of exquisite beauty. It’s hard to say what is your favorite place and why. I can’t say whether mountains, deserts, or beaches fill up my soul more than the other as each has its place and separate purpose. I love them all. But there are some places that stand above the others. They have this special magnetic pull that pulls you into their beauty. They enchant you. They heal you. They call you to look in so you can create something better when...

25+ of the Best State Parks in the USA

While the National Parks of the USA are famous for awe-inspiring scenery, don’t overlook the country’s lesser-known State Parks. Catherine shares her picks for 25+ of the Best State Parks in the USA from coast to coast. If you want to experience the natural beauty of a country, heading to protected parks should be a priority.

Best music festivals this spring

Spring break season might be over, but spring is just getting into full swing. That means warmer weather, higher spirits, and, of course, drinking outside. To combine all three and ring in the season right, you need to figure out your spring music festival lineup. You probably know all about Coachella, Ultra, and the Governor’s Ball, but those behemoths of the concert scene aren’t always the best value, or the most fun — especially when it comes to actually securing tickets. From the Stagecoa...

Week 17: Wowed at what lives Beyond Vegas

Keeping a commitment can be challenging, but there is one important reason why you should: If you don’t you lose confidence in yourself. If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

Wacky museums to visit in Las Vegas

The endless stream of taxis shuttling visitors from McCarran International Airport to the Las Vegas strip is as monotonous as the turnover on the $1 poker machines and Blackjack tables those visitors plan to park themselves in front of. Vegas is actually full of incredible things to do and see, and most don’t even involve throwing your money away. To really throw your cabbie for a loop, have them drop you at one of the city’s museums, some of which pay tribute to subject matter that is only t...

Marketing tech vendors need to find right balance between digital and human interactions

As I walked the long halls of Adobe Summit this week in Las Vegas and listened to the company’s marketing and data integration story, I thought about the obvious disconnect that happens between brands and their customers. With tons of data, a growing set of tools to bring it together, and a desire to build an optimal experience, you would think we have been set up for thrilling consumer experiences, yet we all know that is not always what happens when the rubber meets the road. Maybe part of the...

Best cities in the US for a cannabis

The number of states that allow recreational cannabis is rapidly growing. It’s inspiring a new class of travelers — the cannabis class — to get out of their homes to visit places where weed is warmly embraced. Even for the least experienced, the legal experience is a curiosity for people passing through on pleasure or business. Yet not all cities are created equal. Some cities in recreational states don’t allow sales while others lack the infrastructure to have a solid selection of shops or ...

Drinking laws in the Arab world

In the multi-billion-dollar game of tourism, having places for people to cut loose and drink is as important as beaches and chef-driven restaurants. This is the conundrum for much of the Middle East and parts of North Africa, as strict Muslim countries — governed by Sharia law prohibiting any involvement with alcohol – try to develop large-scale tourism. Nearly all of the Muslim countries you’d want to visit have ways for you to drink; you just need to follow an often confusing set of laws to...

Week 15: Viva Las Vegas Baby!

We weren’t intending on visiting Vegas on our America Unplugged road trip. Our intention on  this trip is to go beyond the main tourist destinations that everyone knows, and strangely, wants to visit. But, since we were close by, and our Australian readers insist on incorporating Vegas into their travel plans, we decided why not?

Best spring break trips in the US

You don’t have to do five-story beer bongs off a beachfront balcony to have a great spring break. Though let’s be honest, it’s a better story if you do. The annual respite from school and work that runs from the beginning of March to mid-April is one of the great American traditions, where college kids create memories they won’t remember, and families finally have time for some peace and quiet. Even if you can’t afford a week of debauchery in Mexico or a family jaunt to Europe, each state has...
