LGBTQ guide to Washington, DC

When you think of Washington, DC, perhaps you flash to a photo of the capitol building and the White House. Maybe you picture a crowded senate floor or a news anchor standing in front of the Supreme Court. DC might not, however, be one of the first places you think of when you think of LGBTQ+ travel destinations. That’s not entirely DC’s fault since first and foremost it’s the capital of the United States and is typically associated with lawmaking and politics. But if you peel back a few of t...

what i'm reading: syria's secret library: reading and redemption in a town under siege

It's also a tribute to the spirit of resistance to tyranny and oppression.In 2013, the Syrian town of Daraya was targeted by the country's dictator, Bashar al-Assad. Many residents managed to evacuate, but others stayed, determined to hold the historic and then-thriving town as a stronghold against the Assad regime.There, as their town was...

When the book was published, I'm sure I wasn't the only one surprised by its brevity. At a slim 207 pages, Working: Researching, Interviewing, Writing is the equivalent of a post-it note for Caro, whose books are often described as tomes.I read Working over the course of a weekend, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Tips for Visiting The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

A person cannot go to New York for the first time and not go to the Statue of Liberty and we are no exception. We were hoping to wake up early and make our way down to the Battery Park early to book our tickets to enter the crown of the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately, two weeks of hard travel had taken its toll and we slept in. Read the original post Tips for Visiting The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on The Planet D: Adventure Travel Blog.

Travel: Peel back the centuries in St. Augustine, America’s oldest city

My family finally took a long-awaited trip in December to St. Augustine, America’s oldest consistently populated city in the continental United States, established by Spain in 1565. This enchanting city on Florida’s Atlantic coast, oozing with old-world charm, did not disappoint. Our only mistake was not staying longer and seeing more of the city’s sights and beaches. St. Augustine has earned some well-deserved accolades in the travel industry. In 2018, Conde Nast Traveler included St. Augustine...

Fort Lauderdale's art scene

The idea of going to an art gallery used to absolutely terrify me. Nothing makes you feel like more of a fraud than entering a room full of artists and aficionados, and pretending to be moved by a piece of abstract expressionism that, for all you know, is a picture of an exploded rubber band ball. Enjoying art at the amateur level can be tricky, because many galleries, museums, and art districts feel intimidating to those outside the art community. I had come to terms with the fact that I’d n...

What Staying at the TWA Hotel is Really Like

The Golden Age of flying instantly conjures images of attractive couples dressed to the nines as they board a small jet to whisk them away in what must have seemed like no time at all. Onboard they’re served decadent meals with all the finishes and afterwards they smoke a cigarette while enjoying an after dinner drink in the plane’s lounge. The modern traveler hasn’t experienced this kind of luxury in decades and that’s not likely to change any time soon. This desire to return to a more civ...

Asheville, NC, for LGBTQ travelers

Though the southeast , in general, has never been among the most gay-friendly regions in the United States, there are some pockets, namely urban areas, where the LGBTQ community is not only welcomed but also embraced.

Being downtown and among the lively crowd of both tourists and locals, you’d be forgiven for forgetting, if even for a moment, that North Carolina was at the epicenter of the “bathr...

Designing the Perfect Quick Getaway to Oklahoma City

In recent years I’ve firmed embraced the concept of micro-vacations; quick weekend getaways to new spots. Sure, I also love those weeklong adventures halfway around the planet, but I’ve learned the necessity of leaving home more frequently as a way to decompress and mentally reset myself. Any trip we take has benefits, and most recently I found myself enjoying those benefits in Oklahoma City. I had briefly visited the capital of Oklahoma while driving Route 66, but since spending 12 hours (...
