Jun 25th 2011 1:14PM I actually do love B&Bs and did a whole roadtrip myself last October where I only stayed at B&Bs. I have a dream to open one myself one day when I retire from full time travel. Haven't decided on a place yet but always had that dream. All that being said, they aren't perfect....they are just darn close to.
Jun 24th 2011 11:53AM Arguably, I'm biased since I grew up in New England. I've always loved Providence. It is a hot bed for artistic and creative people and those who want to experience the byproducts of such a crowd, then again - so is a lot of the North East in my experience. Perhaps all the beautiful vistas and towering mountains make a creative melting pot a foregone conclusion.
Feb 21st 2011 3:08PM Great list! Of all, I think the Broadway is the one I enjoyed the most.
Nov 29th 2010 1:08PM GREAT story as per usual Mike! An important reminder on Cyber Monday of what is really important at this time of year. *Cough*...definitely not consumerism.
Nov 19th 2010 3:00PM Zingermans in Ann Arbor, MI or Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger also in A2 top my list.
Nov 18th 2010 3:13PM Thanks David, for being honest about the drawbacks. I visited Eataly just after it was opened and managed to live through the fray to purchase a sandwich. In all fairness, the sandwich was amazing. But the experience itself, gave me a migraine.
I wonder, if after the insanity dies down, Eataly will look and feel more like it was meant to. Or perhaps, it was a bad call.
I'm just thankful the sandwich I did have was so terrific.
Sep 2nd 2010 2:17PM Here in the Detroit, Michigan area - we have a pleathora of old theaters that are truly amazing. It is one of my favorite things about SE Michigan.
Farmington - Civic Theater on Grand River has been restored to Art Deco standards & shows 2nd run movies
Royal Oak - Main Art Theater is restored but also modernized and features independent cinema
Redford - Redford Theatre features old movies and special runs of 2nd run films and is lovingly preserved
Ann Arbor - Michigan Theater shows independent cinema and has been restored to its former glory as a true landmark of cinema with just stunning interior. it also plays host to the Michigan Film Festival every year

May 18th 2010 12:33PM It is soo true: a well placed bench is like a lake in the middle of a desert!
May 13th 2010 8:13PM I'm definitely in the domestic travel camp too!! (While still acknowledging the importance of overseas travel.) Because I think it is important to know one's own country first, before one ventures to others. I also think that even though the US is younger than other countries, we nonetheless have important history and natural resources here that should be discovered and enjoyed and learned from. Just as much as England or Asia or France, etc.
