We're told this group of 80, "the majority of whom identify as LGBT, splintered off from the larger group in Mexico City after weeks of what they say was discriminatory treatment by local residents and other travelers."The LGBT migrants gravitated toward one another within the caravan and...

And while walking gets you up-close and personal, it’s hard to cover a lot of ground on foot — especially when the places you want to visit are far apart.

Plus, fantastic cities like Seattle and Washington, DC, are becoming even friendlier to cyclists by adding bike lanes, welcoming bike...
