Cheapest beach towns in the US

It’s about the time of year where a week at the beach sounds pretty good. Of course, it’s also the time of the year when abundant holiday shopping has left your bank account in a not-so-vacation-friendly condition. But trips to the shore don’t have to be financially crippling. If you can get a good group together and rent a house somewhere warm, it can actually be surprisingly economical.

Our Vendée adventure

We decided last summer to plan a trip to the central Atlantic coast this fall. In 2011 we went there, to the Ile d'Oléron, and wanted to do a day trip to nearby La Rochelle. We got to the island, but there were strikes and the ferries over to La Rochelle weren't running, so we didn't get there. Such is life. So we planned last week's trip so that we could visit La Rochelle and other nearby places. The door on this end opens into the living room. One of the bedroom windows is just above. We ren...

Travel: Roll the dice on Atlantic City and you may be pleasantly surprised

Knowing I’m from Southern California with Las Vegas so close, several people told me not to expect too much from Atlantic City. Sure, I heard “The World’s Famous Playground” had seen better times, but I still wanted to see it for myself. I made a trip out there last fall. As I approached the resort city on New Jersey’s Atlantic Coast, I appreciated that it was surrounded by water, rather than a desert as I was used to. Visitors stroll along Atlantic City’s Boardwalk.
