The biggest event in all 50 states

Every state has that one event that everyone either looks forward to or gets the hell out of town for — that festival, parade, or sporting event that draws people from all over the world and is a great time if you go but an even better time to leave and rent out your house. For travelers though, these events are some of the best ways to experience a city. Some of them are household names, stuff like Burning Man or the Kentucky Derby or New Year’s Eve in NYC. But even the big events in smaller...

Spring Break Should Be A National Holiday In The US

  I’m a fan of spring break. I’m a believer in regular vacations. I love it when people I work with get away and disconnect. And, I do it at least four times a year. Spring break feels like it has gotten out of control. Rethinking it could be interesting. This year, at least 50% of the people I work with regularly are on spring break this week. I think the other 50% go on spring break next week. Easter seems to be the pivot point for this. Unlike the week before Christmas, which moves around ev...

Summer Resort Deals in the Riviera Maya of Mexico

High season is in full swing in the Riviera Maya beach region of Mexico right now, in March as I write this. The weather is nasty in much of the USA and Canada and many vacationers are rushing to trade in snow shovels for flip-flops. This generally continues through Spring Break season, then as sure as April showers bring May flowers, visitor numbers drop off from May onward. Sure, the summer stays busy at family beach resorts, but summer and fall are when you can find some of the best deals a...

This Brand's Flirty Dresses Are Giving Us Major Wanderlust

Major Spring Break inspiration ahead.I've never been able to get behind maxi dresses. Maybe it's just me or maybe this is a common opinion, but I've always thought maxi dresses look so dramatic and billowy that they would only really work for a school dance or someone's wedding. And then I saw Caroline Constas' latest collection. It's brimming with Spring Break fashion inspiration, but it's the dresses that are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. And I suddenly want to wear maxi dresses every day. Carolin...

Looking back and forward… Belize

I was recently looking through the blog for something about my trip to Belize last year and I was surprised that I had written so little about my time on Caye Caulker. It was a great trip, although maybe it could have been better from a fly-fishing perspective… I only had one day to really fish and that was the worst weather of the week, but the trip… the trip was fantastic. It was so good, so perfect, even with all the imperfections, that we are doing it again this year. Indeed, that trip stand...
