USA Today Upgrade Tip: Take Any Open Seat Because Flight Attendants Can’t Police It

Christopher Elliott takes on his role as the world's worst travel advisor and tells his audience in USA Today that they have his permission to take any empty seat in coach since flight attendants "can't police every seat." By the way that's one of his "tips for getting an upgrade." So presumably we're not even talking about moving between regular coach seats.

Best ice skating rinks outside NYC

Much like with great pizza and bad taxi drivers, Christmastime ice skating isn’t limited to New York City. Sure, many of us grew up watching images of people gleefully gliding by in the background of The Today Show and thought, “Man, if only I was willing to pay three-quarters of my paycheck in rent, I, too, could have a scenic outdoor place to ice skate!” But you don’t have to — cities around the country have gotten into the urban skating game, as have national parks and even some beachfront...

Pet alligators at NOLA airport

Reptiles don’t traditionally fall into the category of animals that make people feel comfortable — they typically provoke more anxiety than anything else. But Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport thinks alligators could be a useful therapeutic tool, so it’s making them available at baggage claim for passengers to pet. The program will run every Friday from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM as part of a partnership between the airport and the Audubon Nature Initiative. Photo: Louis Armstrong N...

Travel: Kansas City is the Midwest’s best watering hole

I spend two weeks every summer teaching in Kansas City, which I discovered is a fascinating town where East, West, North and South meet in a unique blend of cultures and tastes. (In fact, it’s not too far from the belly button of the country. The exact center of the contiguous U.S., geographically speaking, is near Lebanon, Kansas, about 250 miles west of K.C.) I always enjoy hanging out and sampling anything local in the many bars and restaurants that dot this lively, pleasant burgh. Over the l...
