$56 A Night To Pitch A Tent? Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

$56 A Night To Pitch A Tent? Happy Memorial Day Weekend! May 21st, 2013 at 10:00AM: Since when did camping become expensive? I live in Chicago and have spent a ridiculous amount of time researching places to camp over the Memorial Day weekend in the last two weeks. If I had planned ahead, booking a campsite would be quick and easy but we tend not to plan very far in advance, which makes travel during holidays complicated and sometimes expensive. We wanted to camp at Devil's...

Located less than an hour south of Indianapolis, Brown County is the crown jewel of Midwestern trail riding.

Last week, Indianapolis International Airport beat out every other large facility on the continent for the top Air Service Quality award for 2012. The results are based on passenger satisfaction, and IND won for the...

Indianapolis Refines The Art Hotel Feb 15th, 2013 at 11:00AM: "Restroom?" the guest asked near The Alexander hotel's registration desk, a pair of antique bureaus encased in glass. "Follow the birds," the employee answered, referring to a flock made of sculpted vinyl records fluttering along a lobby wall.

The Worst-Smelling Towns In America

The Worst-Smelling Towns In America Aug 1st, 2012 at 9:00AM: Last week, I was in Eureka, California, for a couple of days with my parents and brother's family. Despite the cute, historic downtown and an epic feast at the renown Samoa Cookhouse, our overwhelming impression of this coastal city is that it should be renamed "Eureeka," because it stinks – literally. The stench of ... bait fish? Fish meal or perhaps cat food processing enveloped our...

Photo Of The Day: Fourth Of July In Indiana

Photo Of The Day: Fourth Of July In Indiana Jul 4th, 2012 at 6:00PM: Patriotism means something different to everyone, but today we each celebrate the home we have found in the United States. We celebrate today with things that complete any good party: food, drinks, music, the outdoors and a good show. In most places, the show tonight will be a fireworks display. For that reason, I chose this photo by Keith Pennington as today's Photo Of The Day. A night sky in...

Gawker's Worst 50 States

Gawker's Worst 50 States Aug 25th, 2011 at 11:30AM: I've been following Gawker's newest series, The Worst 50 States. I've been enjoying following this series. In an effort to pin down not only the best states in the US of A, but, more importantly, the worst states, Gawker compiled a Gawker-invented rating system in order to rank our fair fifty. Granted, this rating system consists solely of the viewpoints of those on staff for Gawker, so the...

Holiday trip? Consider rail travel

Holiday trip? Consider rail travel Nov 26th, 2010 at 2:00PM: Unlike Europe and Japan, the United States isn't known for its high-tech, efficient rail travel. Which is a shame because, as I recently discovered, taking Amtrak is sometimes a better way to travel this big country of ours, and generally speaking, it has a lower carbon footprint per passenger than driving or flying. You definitely need to have time to spare for long distance trips,...

Getting drunk: Twenty cities that don't know how to handle their liquor Oct 8th, 2010 at 9:00AM: California loves to get wasted! San Diego and San Jose are the top two cities that drink stupidly, according to a survey by Insurance.com. They lead the country in alcohol-related driving violations, a dubious distinction to say the least. So, if you step into the crosswalk in these two spots, take an extra second to look both ways. The reasons for hitting this list vary and include proximity...

Five essential Memorial Day destinations

Five essential Memorial Day destinations May 26th, 2010 at 5:30PM: Memorial Day marks the cultural beginning of summer, the start of the warm months. The picnics and the parties and the celebration of the impending summer have sort of become the point of Memorial Day for many, a kind of superimposition of recreation over the intention of the holiday. We love beer and hot dogs as much as the next guy, but for those interested in the history and meaning (or, in...

Wineries with outdoor music offer perfection: 10 wineries and 9 states

Wineries with outdoor music offer perfection: 10 wineries and 9 states Sep 8th, 2009 at 12:00PM: As I sipped a glass of red wine at Harpersfield Winery in Geneva, Ohio on the last Saturday in August while listening to the Hollywood Slim Band, one of my favorite Ohio-based groups, I thought what a perfect finale evening to the last month of summer. The setting sun that cast its warm glow over the scene--plus the plate of cheese, meats and olives served up with warm bread cinched the thought....
