Where to eat and drink at DFW

Dallas-Fort Worth is full of good places to eat, and its airport is no different. While it’s primarily stocked with the barbecue joints that the Lone Star State is so famous for, even the pickiest of eaters won’t go hungry waiting on a flight here (although vegetarians and vegans might find it a little harder than most). Pull on your stretchy pants and get ready for your flight. These are the best places to eat and drink in every terminal at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Term...

Fun & Funky Restaurants in Brooklyn for Various Cuisines

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - Many people might think Manhattan is the hub of New York’s foodie culture, but the diversity of Brooklyn has increasingly made it a hotspot for NYC foodies. With independently-owned restaurants, young rising chefs, and something for just about every cuisine, Brooklyn is a great place to eat—breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert! The thing about all these Brooklyn restaurants, though, is there is always a ne...

The best places for wine trip

Wine vacations aren’t nearly as bougie or costly as they sound. Today, you can find wine around the world that tastes good and is affordable — especially when you go to the winery itself. It doesn’t hurt that literally every state in the nation has a wine region now, so there’s plenty to choose from. Napa can get by on its name, everyone else has to vie for wine tourism dollars in other ways. This makes you, the wine-drinking tourist, the winner, as everywhere from British Columbia to South A...

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...

Newest airports in the United States

No nation loves to complain quite like the United States. Even though we’ve got people from all over the world trying to move here every day, we’ll still take to social media any chance we get to gripe about everything from slow pizza delivery drivers to overpriced coffee. But nobody gets the brunt of the complaints like airports. Travel abroad and you’ll find airports that feel like brand new shopping malls. Technological palaces with butterfly gardens, movie theaters, and outdoor meditation...

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. Often, the government prevents the development of these properties, allowing wildlife to thrive and supporting native plant species. In the United States, there are actua...

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...

20 Fun and Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids

LA is the second biggest city in the USA, and as a visitor it seems like there are endless things to do in Los Angeles with kids! Over the years we’ve been able to visit Los Angeles several times. Firstly solo, then as a couple, and now with our two daughters, Kalyra and Savannah. To be honest we weren’t initially big fans, and it’s taken a while for LA to grow on us. Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third or even forth time before you can appreciate it. I think it’s because we c...

Former churches turned into bars

Historic churches are already some of the most gorgeous structures in the world. Recently, a select few have been turned into something even more beautiful — bars. Don’t worry, it’s not sacrilegious. These churches have been deconsecrated, so they’re simply regular buildings with stunning architectural designs at this point. The conversion is a win-win for both the churches and the bars. Official estimates list the number of church closures at around 4,000 a year, and new tenets are keeping ...

Best doughnuts from around the world

Food isn’t, and never has been, limited by borders or boundaries. The things we eat travel as we do, flying across oceans and into the cultures and diets of their new homes, adapting along the way. But there may be no single food item that’s made its way into every corner of the world quite like the doughnut. Fried dough has been consumed for long enough to be found as fossilized pieces at ancient Native American sites. These days, it’s everywhere in one variation or another. In fact, forms o...

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? I wasn’t expecting to have a great time – I mean how long can you spend looking at casinos before you get bored? But, I arrived intending to have a great time and see V...

Week 14: Relaxing at Stunning Lake Mead, Nevada

This week was all about taking it slow and enjoying the stunning lakeside views and desert landscape from our campsite. I was happy to hear the coyotes howl at night as we sat around the campfire – finally a place we can have one again. Lake Mead RV Village I had time to set up a new homeschooling routine for the girls, catch up on work and exercise. We were able to use this time also to run a few errands – put Kalyra’s broken camera into Best Buy for repair. Thankfully I bought the protecti...

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...

Best late night bars in Manhattan

New York City is known as the city that never sleeps for a reason. If you want Chinese food at 2:00 AM, there’s something open. If you’ve got insomnia and need sweets to munch on while you watch TV, there’s something open. If you need a bottle of wine to celebrate some fortuitous occurrence at 3:30 AM, you’re more than covered. Any kind of establishment you can think of will have at least one place open that caters to your needs. It’s something locals take for granted, and when we travel else...

Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama

Any mention of Mardi Gras in the US usually makes people think of New Orleans. While the Big Easy has the biggest and most famous Mardi Gras party, the first official Mardi Gras in the US actually took place in Mobile, Alabama, in 1703. Mobilians are proud of being the location for America’s first Mardi Gras. So much so that the state tourism board put up a billboard outside of New Orleans stating in all caps, “You are 114 miles from America’s original Mardi Gras.” And while the wasted horde...

The Icelandair Experience

Iceland has been on my shortlist of destinations to visit. It is one of the mystical places in this world to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, if you’re fortunate enough to have clear skies and recent solar flare activity. I had been itching to see the lights, and when a great travel deal came through my inbox, I moved things around my schedule and booked a flight that would fit within my limited time frame. While the deals were enticing, getting from Louisiana to Iceland still presented s...

6 American Cities I Think You Should Visit This Spring

Traditional Mardi Gras foods

Mardi Gras, Carnaval , Fat Tuesday — whatever you call it, the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent is a time of eating and drinking in excess. Religious or not, people who attend Mardi Gras parties see levels of consumption matched only by holidays like Thanksgiving, only a much, much rowdier Thanksgiving. Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday (the 47th day before Easter), but the total season is longer than just one day. The season technically starts on January 6, the Christian holi...

Best bridges in the United States

Bridges seem to captivate people more than any other structures, not only as engineering marvels that connect previously separated areas but also as local icons that become unmistakable parts of a city. They’re places to relax, places to hone your photography skills, and sometimes places to beat your head against the steering wheel when stuck in traffic. But they always bring a sense of wonder and a little bit of closeness to the water. So it’s no wonder that bridges are among the most photog...

Best places for beignets in NOLA

New Orleans’ most famous dessert, the beignet, is simply fried dough covered in powdered sugar, but it’s simplicity belies its appeal. The beignet is the official state doughnut of Louisiana — yes, Louisiana has a state doughnut — and is often served alongside cafe au lait, which is French for coffee with milk. The French connection, like so many things in Louisiana, goes back to the French settlers who moved from the Canadian region of Acadia in the 17th century. One of the food traditions t...

The best king cakes in Louisiana

It’s not Carnival season in Louisiana without king cake. The sweet dessert is filled with a cinnamon-sugar dough, and the outside is layered with purple, green, and gold icing — the traditional colors of Mardi Gras. Inside every cake is a plastic baby, which is a symbol of luck and prosperity (although whoever gets the slice with the baby has to provide the cake for the next year). Today, you can find king cakes pretty much anywhere in the US from Epiphany in early January up to Mardi Gras in...
