Tell Us Your Best San Diego Travel Tips

When someone says “in this movie, the city is like another character,” they usually don’t mean Anchorman. This week Hack Your City goes to San Diego, a city that sure sounds comfortable right now.

Eat Like a Local on a Neighborhood Food Tour

Are you experiencing a new country with all five senses? Are you taking advantage of the fact that most places are laying out their culture on a buffet and inviting you to into local life by eating their food? I once got on a flight to Central America and was surrounded by one of those mission groups in matching T-shirts. You know, the ones who spend $1,500 each on something not called a vacation...Read the whole entry... »          Related Stories Eat Like a Local on a Neighborhood Food Tour -...

The Best Kansas City Travel Tips From Our Readers

Kansas City sounds like a lot of fun, and now I’m hungry and I really want a drink from the TikiCat tiki bar.

This city can’t even fit in one state. Kansas City MO, Kansas City KS, and a handful of other cities make up the Kansas City metropolitan area, wrapped around the junction of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers.

Let Flight Deals Guide You to Your Next Exotic Destination

When you see friends or people you follow on social media posting photos from exotic destinations you have never read about, how do you think they ended up there? Have they been planning a trip for 10 years to Tallin, Sofia, or Cartagena? Or were they just searching great flight deals and they ended up in Cyprus? In many ways the “bucket list” phenomenon has been a detriment to travel, cranking up the overtourism in famous destinations like Amsterdam, Barcelona, Venice, Machu Picchu, and Ankor W...

The Best Miami Travel Tips From Our Readers

“I use the term ‘Swamp Unicorn’ to describe us Miami Natives,” says reader maidus. “We’re magical creatures and are rare to find in a town that’s filled with some of the world’s biggest pricks that decide to come here and live ‘la vida loca’ and give this place a bad rep.” Hoo boy.

Americans should travel domestically

It’s easy to make friends in the Midwest. Not that the concept of friendly people in the middle states is groundbreaking or anything, but it really is true. This is how I ended up hotboxing an F-150 in a Ft. Wayne parking lot outside a dive bar called the Brass Rail. Phil, my hot-boxing host, was the bartender at a music venue I’d been to earlier in the night. “You came all the way from Miami to FORT WAYNE?” the burly, bearded bartender said when I ordered a beer and told him I was visiting. ...

These Are the Best Airports to Get Stuck in This Holiday Season

When it comes to airports in the United States, there are definite winners and losers.

A Learning Lunch at Commonplace Books in Oklahoma City

The good news, AND the bad news, is that I needed to pick a place to meet a friend for lunch in Oklahoma City, and there were so many choices that I went into brain lock until she was already 45 minutes from arriving in town. One of my favorites is The Mule for amazing grilled cheese and craft beer, but it is right across from the divine offerings at Pie Junkie and I knew that I had no business tempting myself that way. Some searching turned up the lighter fare at The Kitchen at Commonplace Book...

The Craft Beer Scene in North Alabama

It doesn’t have dozens of breweries or some beer heritage story, but North Alabama does have one thing going for it that’s unique: rocket scientists. Huntsville, Alabama is one of the smartest places in the country, one of those cities where a master’s degree makes you average and a doctorate degree might get you a job interview. That’s because it’s “Rocket City,” whether that means the place where the Space Shuttle and other rockets were designed or where the secret weapons that can blow up a T...

Uwajimaya Asian Grocery and a Special Hotel in Seattle’s Chinatown

Some of the best travel hours are spent wandering around making discoveries even though you didn’t make any plans to make discoveries. In an effort to stay dry indoors on a rainy day in Seattle, my daughter and I hopped onto the city’s light rail and got off at the International District/Chinatown station, just to see what was there. There’s a nice 45-foot-tall gate over South King Street that helps anchor the area. It is pretty new (dedicated in 2008) and also has Ofo rideshare bikes nearby, if...

New York Icons: Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

It is a must-do in the Big Apple: visiting those New York icons the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. You can do it the easy way, though, or you can do it the hard way. The hard way is not doing any planning, showing up to get tickets in the middle of the day, and standing in line forever. Bonus pain points if you do it with impatient small children. To enjoy the experience, don’t be in a huge rush. Plan on a full morning or a full afternoon, and reserve tickets ahead of time. My original “per...
