10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington

Sledding and Tubing in Washington Are you someone who loves winter & all of the activities in the snow? Spring & summer are definitely my favorite seasons in the Northwest, but I love to try out all the fun snow sports every winter with my family. We are so fortunate here in the western parts of the Northwest to be so close to the mountains, yet thankfully we have mainly mild temperatures in most locations. So, we don’t have to deal with driving in the snow unless we want to, for the most p...

US cities for vegans and vegetarians

The food landscape in the US was not designed for vegetarians and vegans. Meals typically revolve around meat as the main course, with some veggies here and there as sides.

To find the best cities for vegetarians and vegans, WalletHub, a credit score and report company, crunched some data and found the top 100 large US cities for those of...

How to plan the best ski vacations

Gone are the days of planning a ski or snowboard vacation without doubting whether or not the snow will be deep — or exist at all. Each year, we wonder if the resorts will be able to open in time for Christmas vacation, and skiers across the country watch as the epic snow storms we were promised shift to rain.

3 awesome places for ski vacations

Skiers and snowboarders are fond of overarching statements. “I’ve skied Utah,” they might say after a four-day road trip to three different resorts. The thing is, it’s impossible to experience a great ski area in one day. Knowing a mountain requires enough time to explore its many slopes, or even lapping the same run a few times to find a truly memorable line. If you’re putting in the effort and money to do a big ski trip, do yourself a favor and spend some time getting to know a single dest...

L.A. Kings’ goodwill trip to China took months of planning

When last season ended, one arm of the Kings organization immediately began the search for a new coach, president and general manager. Another arm simultaneously launched into its own extensive project, planning the first ever NHL games in China. The Kings and Canucks leave for Shanghai on Sunday to begin a groundbreaking week in China that has been a long time in the making. Whether planning an excursion to the top of the 1,536-foot tall Oriental Pearl TV tower in Shanghai or calculating the id...

9 adventures in Leavenworth, WA

LOCATED AT THE head of a river valley, right smack in the middle of the Cascades, Leavenworth couldn’t be better situated for outdoor exploration by adventurers of all levels of prowess — from tender-footed families to ridge-conquering, steel-thighed alpinists. This Bavarian-themed mountain village enjoys almost every conceivable outdoor adventure, from a relatively relaxed round of wine-tasting to a pulse-pounding whitewater rafting trip. I’d recommend bookending each outdoor romp with a mug of...

Ten Strange, Cool, and Compelling Reasons to Visit Southwestern Delaware Now

Delaware is not a state that gets much hype, tourism-wise, and when it does, it's usually about the beaches (Rehoboth, Bethany), the Brandywine River Valley (Wyeth family, Longwood Gardens), or the City of Wilmington. But here's the thing: Southwestern Delaware - or more precisely Western Sussex County, which includes the towns of Laurel, Seaford, Bethel and Georgetown - is shot through with so many rivers and rivulet's, creeks and streams, it is kayaking nirvana. And very few know about it. ...
