5 U.S. Beaches You Can Get to Without a Car

5 U.S. Beaches You Can Get to Without a Car Aug 15th, 2013 at 11:00AM: Flickr, Tom Gill Summer may be winding down, but there are still a few weekends left to spend at the beach. Rather than sit in traffic or rent an expensive car, you can ride public transportation to many beaches in the U.S. Seasonal routes are especially likely to be popular, so go early and pack light. Boston - CapeFLYER train to Cape Cod Reintroduced this summer, the CapeFLYER train goes...

Let's Bring Capitalism To America's Beaches

Let's Bring Capitalism To America's Beaches Sep 24th, 2012 at 10:00AM: America is a paradise for consumers. We can satisfy just about any consumer desire that strikes our fancy, even if it's 3 a.m. on a holiday weekend. The one big exception to this rule is on our beaches, where most of the time we're forced to lug coolers, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and anything else we'll need. There are some exceptions to this rule, but at many beaches around the country...

Video: Great White Shark Drafts Sea Kayaker

Jul 11th, 2012 at 7:00AM: There have been a number of great white sightings in Cape Cod of late, but first-time sea kayaker Walter Szulc, Jr. got a closer look than most while paddling at Nauset Beach on Saturday. He safely made it to shore, and the beach was closed. On Sunday, three great whites were spotted in the region, the largest reaching up to 18 feet in length. [UPDATE: Scientists are now disputing the species...

Megabus branches out to Cape Cod

Megabus branches out to Cape Cod Jun 4th, 2011 at 6:30PM: If you're still planning a summer escape and want to save some gas money, here's some good news: Megabus will now send some of its blue, double-decker buses to Cape Cod.

Sharks circle Cape Cod

Sharks circle Cape Cod Jul 31st, 2010 at 12:00PM: Cape Cod vacationers just lost access to five miles of beach, thanks to sharks in the water. A spotter pilot saw three more great whites, one of them a mere 100 yards from a party on the sand. They're swimming around off South Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts, and swimming is definitely out of the question. No timeframe has been given for when the water will be open again. One shark is estimated...

Get out to New England this summer

Get out to New England this summer May 6th, 2009 at 2:00PM: We all know that airlines and hotels are cutting prices like crazy, but the continued recession can still leave some deals unreachable. If you live anywhere from Boston to Washington, a weekend away won't require a trip to an airport, restoring some value to the low rates that hotels and local attractions are charging. Need some ideas? New England Inns & Resorts suggests the...

As logic would have it, it's on the list as the best bargain in the U.S. is well. So what makes this place in Cape Cod such a deal? Cleanliness of the hotel (just read the comments on the dirtiest hotels post), friendliness and knowledge of the...

Valentine's Day: Fanning or Finding Love at an Art Museum

Valentine's Day: Fanning or Finding Love at an Art Museum Feb 7th, 2007 at 1:11PM: Art museums make me feel amorous. It's true. A walk through rooms filled with paintings, particularly if they're from the Impressionism art movement, soften me right up. The sounds of shoes on marble or wood floors, the polite guards making sure people don't get too close to the artwork, the creativity and genius of human beings in an outpouring of color and images. Yum! Evidently, I'm not alone...
