Virus Leaves The US Travel Industry Struggling to Recover

U.S. air travel down almost 90% from a year ago. A ghostly emptiness at Hawaii’s tourist hotels. Deserted Las Vegas casinos counting the days to reopening. Few sectors of the economy have endured as much devastation from the coronavirus as the travel business. Surveying the wreckage, economists and company leaders say it will take years to regenerate the $1.1 trillion the industry produced last year, potentially leaving many airlines, hotels, rental car companies and restaurants in peril. And as...

Las Vegas natural attractions

Las Vegas is an oasis of indulgence in the middle of the Mojave Desert, and most who visit this air-conditioned fantasyland stay within the casino-lined, four-mile length of the Las Vegas Strip. What many are beginning to realize — and locals have long known — is that the nearby deserts, dunes, and mountain ranges are a jackpot all their own. Hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, off-roading, and even skiing are all possible within an hour of the Strip. The beauty of the surroundin...

Best train travel routes in the US

It’s time to mix up the classic US road trip or the flyover bypass blitz. Train travel is making a comeback. There’s the old school romance and allure of riding the rails. But there’s also ditching a driver, not having to pull over to use the bathroom, ample legroom, and no TSA. Train travel’s carbon footprint is minuscule compared to flying or driving, so there’s no green guilt. Best of all, the US rail routes hit craveable bucket-list destinations across the nation. So heed the whistle and ...

Cannabis dispensaries essential

Cannabis dispensaries and grocery stores usually don’t have much in common. The same can be said for dispensaries and delivery warehouses, or dispensaries and wastewater treatment plants. But in the era of COVID-19, one common thread ties these service locations together: They’ve all been deemed essential. Of the nine states with legal cannabis in the United States, all but Massachusetts have kept recreational dispensaries open. The number of dispensaries that have remained open is much high...

States with strange alcohol laws

In an ideal world, we’d be able to show up in a new state, stroll into any establishment with a cash register, and purchase whatever type of alcohol our hearts desire. Happy hour would be at 9:00 PM on Saturdays, last call wouldn’t exist, and no one would look twice at you for throwing back Jell-O shots on the sidewalk in broad daylight. Unfortunately, this is not our reality. There is an abundance of rules governing alcohol consumption, and since this is the United States, these rules differ...

What is the tallest building in each

It can be tough to get a sense of a building’s scale unless you’re comparing it first-hand, side-by-side, with a skyscraper. When many of us were growing up, the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower) in Chicago, Illinois, was the tallest building in the country, but that title has since been awarded to the One World Trade Center in New York City. We know how tall the WTC is in feet, but exactly how much taller than the other skyscrapers in the country? And what does that actually look like? Than...

Most endangered plants in the US
