What's the Best Museum in Your City?

Museums are the crown jewel of a city. Even a mediocre city usually has at least one solid museum you can blow an afternoon on; most have enough to fill an entire trip. Some are universally acknowledged as treasures: everyone knows the value of the Louvre, the Smithsonian, the Met. Fewer, but still many, know about…Read more...

What's the Worst Tourist Trap in Your City?

In New York, skip the Statue of Liberty and take the Staten Island Ferry; walk the Manhattan Bridge instead of the Brooklyn Bridge. In Portland, don’t go to Voodoo Donuts, go to Blue Star.

Ask Lifehacker to Settle Your Dispute

The great king Solomon was asked to settle a dispute between two women, both of whom had recently given birth, one of whom had smothered her child in its sleep.

How Do You Perk Up a Bland Recipe?

Today, upon logging onto Slack, I was greeted with a horror story. Last night, our dear managing editor, Virginia, was making a lentil soup recipe from [redacted], only to find it called for a paltry 1/4 teaspoon of salt. “Reader, it was bland,” she told us, to which A.A.
