What is pickleball and where to play

There are things you learn in school you generally assume you’ll never need again. Like graphing a parabola, or reciting Hamlet. Also on that list, the invaluable skills gained playing pickleball, the miniature-tennis-like game you completely forgot about after that two-week unit in eighth-grade gym class. Well, not so fast, because pickleball is having a moment beyond the middle school gym. People of all ages are catching pickleball fever, and hotels and resorts are meeting the demand by add...

Red tide is now gone from Florida

Far from the palm-studded paradise of beach bums, Florida has been a veritable nightmare for the past several months. The red tide, a natural environmental phenomenon made worse by pollution and other man-made causes, struck Florida and caused irritation, sneezing, and coughing in beachgoers and significant loss of marine life in some areas. Today, the red tide is gone from most major tourist areas and Florida’s beaches are open for business. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserv...

Beautiful and Unusual Things To Do in Sarasota Florida

Florida’s overlooked Gulf Coast sweeps from live oaks and manatees to white sand and art routes. But it was the variety of things to do in Sarasota that made me rethink fly-drive travel in general. Instead of driving from A to B and on to C, stop for a while in Sarasota. Keep the car and take day trips, mini trips and deliciously lazy drives to the beach. What are the best things to do in Sarasota? Here are some of the best things to do in Sarasota. Art, science, wildlife, beaches and food...

The Flowers of Florida: the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota Florida: thousands of tropical plants, art, research and history Does it make sense to start talking about Florida through its flowers? Or is it too trite a cliche? The modern state of Florida, all 66 000 square miles of it, has an inextricable link with flowers. The name, of course, means “flowery” or “full of flowers”, based on the first impressions of Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon when he “discovered” the place in 1513. And in a less smallp...

We Drove Cross-country With Our Cat (and Nobody Died). Here’s How.

“Dogs have owners; cats have employees.” So goes the conventional wisdom. So, when we decided to take our “boss”, Lizzi, on a three-month road trip of the U.S. East Coast, people told us we were crazy. They weren’t wrong. Frankly, we had no clue how to travel with a cat in a car long distance. Anyone who’s ever tried taking their feline for even a five-minute car ride knows the struggle. Now, imagine bringing them on a seven-hour drive. It can be … stressful. But, our current living situation...

"Each winter, for close to a century now, hundreds of Amish and Mennonite families have travelled from their homes in icy quarters of the U.S. and Canada to Pinecraft, a small, sunny neighborhood in Sarasota, Florida."

"Arriving on chartered buses specializing in the transportation of 'Plain people' from areas such as Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Holmes County, Ohio, they rent modest bungalows and stay for weeks, or sometimes months, at a time. It’s vacation.... [W]ithout barns to raise or cows to milk or scrapple to prepare, the typically stringent rules of Anabaptist life are somewhat suspended in Pinecraft.... Earrings, usually forbidden, can be seen glittering from beneath white bonnets, and houses are out...
