14 Fun Things to Do in Las Vegas for Kids (adult’s like these too)

Should you visit Las Vegas with kids? Once again on our US travels, we were faced with many people telling us Vegas just wasn’t a kid-friendly destination.

Since libraries are essential to the learning process, it’s no surprise that some of the most impressive libraries are located in universities. While we tend to think...

A Canoe Trip in Canada You Probably Won’t Want to Do

We’re eight kilometres into a 290 kilometre canoe trip in northern Saskatchewan and I’m already wondering how I’m going to survive two weeks of paddling.

At its height in 1050, Annalee Newitz writes at Ars Technica, “it was the largest pre-Colombian city in what became the United States…. Its colorful wooden homes and monuments rose along the eastern side of the Mississippi,...
