Travel: Peel back the centuries in St. Augustine, America’s oldest city

My family finally took a long-awaited trip in December to St. Augustine, America’s oldest consistently populated city in the continental United States, established by Spain in 1565. This enchanting city on Florida’s Atlantic coast, oozing with old-world charm, did not disappoint. Our only mistake was not staying longer and seeing more of the city’s sights and beaches. St. Augustine has earned some well-deserved accolades in the travel industry. In 2018, Conde Nast Traveler included St. Augustine...

Fort Lauderdale's art scene

The idea of going to an art gallery used to absolutely terrify me. Nothing makes you feel like more of a fraud than entering a room full of artists and aficionados, and pretending to be moved by a piece of abstract expressionism that, for all you know, is a picture of an exploded rubber band ball. Enjoying art at the amateur level can be tricky, because many galleries, museums, and art districts feel intimidating to those outside the art community. I had come to terms with the fact that I’d n...

Best US music festivals spring 2020

Hopefully, you’re not yet at the point where you’re going all Portlandia and attending festivals via drone. Because though the heat, crowds, and cost of a major music festival can be a little aggravating, it’s still the only chance to see your entire playlist live in one place, combining it with an epic vacation to a new city or a beachfront paradise. Spring might be even better than summer when it comes to US music festivals, offering cooler weather and bills with a little more variety. Rea...

US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig. From ski-slope soirees to fetish-themed festivals, the only thing more difficult than choosing which events to attend in 2020 is choosing who to vote for in the Democratic primary. Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...

Amtrak is returning to Gulf Coast

Amtrak hasn’t visited the Gulf Coast since Hurricane Katrina hit the area 15 years ago. Given the abundance of alternative transportation options like highways and cheap flights, Amtrak’s return to the area seemed unlikely. But City Council members in Mobile, Alabama, just voted for the return of the Sunset Limited — the train that once traveled along the Gulf Coast — and those who frequently traveled on the old route are sure to feel a bit nostalgic. The vote would bring back a portion of th...

LGBTQ travel in Colombia

Although Colombia has been making great strides in tourism over the last few years, many people don’t realize that it is now one of the hottest LGBTQ destinations in South America. As a result of recent legislation introduced by the government, LGBTQ rights are equal to those of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. Consequently, Colombia has become a tempting choice for queer travelers. Within the last 10 years, a full set of anti-discrimination laws have been established. Domestic partnership and...

Travel: How to spend 3 perfect days in Pebble Beach … without picking up a club

Golf and Pebble Beach go together like skiing and Vail. Each sport is so synonymous with the world-class destination, going there and not playing 18 on the gorgeous Pacific coast or schussing in Rocky Mountain heaven is perhaps as great a sin as skipping a Broadway show while visiting New York or not riding on a cable car as a tourist in San Francisco. Unfathomable as it sounds to pass up the signature activity of the City by the Bay, the Great White Way or Colorado at play, the poshest place al...

White House architectural order

It’s a good thing that one of the responsibilities of the Executive Branch isn’t determining what constitutes “good art” and “bad art.” While all forms of art and architecture are subjective, most would probably agree that the US government isn’t exactly an authority on architectural aesthetics, but that may not stop them from dabbling anyway. According to a preliminary draft order obtained by Architectural Record, the White House may be trying to rewrite the Guiding Principles for Federal Ar...

Sexiest museums in the world

American Launching Gol Partnership, Expanding in Miami and South America

American has announced a new codeshare relationship with Gol as well as frequent flyer partnership and an expansion at their Miami hub including to Latin America. Gol wasn’t a great partner for Delta, which doesn’t have a huge presence in Brazil and so the opportunities to feed Delta flights were limited.

J.Lo Is the Action Hero of Hard Rock’s Super Bowl Heist

Hard Rock International's first Super Bowl ad ever was as star-studded as expected.

Lopez's fianc?, Alex Rodriguez, also made an appearance, alongside Steven Van Zandt and Miami's own Pitbull. The 60-second ad,...

Travel: Cirque du Soleil rolls the dice on ‘R.U.N,’ its new Las Vegas show

It’s only 2.3 miles from Treasure Island to Luxor walking The Strip, but the distance between Cirque du Soleil experiences at each place is as vast as easing into a comfy slipper versus wobbling over jagged glass in a 6-inch stiletto heel. Since 1993. T.I. has housed “Mystère,” the storied French-Canadian troupe’s re-invention of the circus. This was Cirque’s first show not in a traveling big top tent, but in permanent residence a Vegas casino. Meantime, a radically bold rethink of the Cirque co...
