The best places in the world to smoke a cigar

The best places in the world to smoke a cigar Aug 19th, 2010 at 3:35PM: Smoking a cigar the correct way demands a critical mix of solitude, contemplation, and most important, awareness of surroundings. All other things become subservient to the act of observing and evaluating. With this game plan in play, the smoker's post-ignition environs take on as much importance as the flavor, taste, and draw of the tobacco. Here is one man's list of the top ten places in the...

Pre-nuptial last rites get fun, expensive

Pre-nuptial last rites get fun, expensive Jul 25th, 2010 at 10:00AM: Bachelor parties used to be so simple. A bunch of guys would cram into a limo, get wasted and let the sounds of Motley Crue fill their ears while some nice young lady works her way through college a dollar bill at a time. Eventually, you'd go home and wake up sans cash, stomach contents and a few brain cells. I'm not sure what bachelorette parties involved, but I suspect there are many...

Vegas club offers holographic hotties

Vegas club offers holographic hotties Jul 23rd, 2010 at 9:00AM: Offering these girls a few drinks won't help you get back to your room any less alone. So, when you're scouring the Las Vegas Strip in the hopes of a blissful night, use Lolita's Cantina and Tequila as a place to plan your next move – not make it. There's a good reason for this – the girls aren't real. And, that can make laying down some game a little harder. Lolita's just opened...

New travel guide spoofs, "Where not to go before you die."

New travel guide spoofs, Jul 19th, 2010 at 11:30AM: Prolific travel writer Catherine Price is over the whole "bucket list" trend. Annoyed that a crappy movie spawned an obnoxious national book craze of all the things one must see, do, and visit before they kick it, Price decided to strike back. Her new release, 101 Things Not to See Before You Die is a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek compendium based on Price's own travel experiences. Some of Price's...

Jun 15th, 2010 at 11:30AM: Road trips are meant to be fun, meaningful, and inspire some reflection as you set out for the great open roads. When the driving gets a little dull, though, there's plenty to see on the side of the road. The eastern portion of the United States is home to many world-recognized sites, but many of these grandiose tourist destinations overshadow the lesser-known, roadside attractions that are...

Las Vegas invites you to get naked

Las Vegas invites you to get naked Jun 11th, 2010 at 11:00AM: Are you bold enough? Unlike topless destinations around the world, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino attracts hotties willing to drop their tops and accept fewer tan lines. This stand in stark contrast to most topless beaches, where there's a distinct lack of legitimate eye candy. The recent "Rehab" party, for example, offered up plenty of skin and is indicative of a new pool party trend in Las...

Best destinations for gadget geeks

Best destinations for gadget geeks Jun 4th, 2010 at 11:39AM: Chances are, the laptop you're reading this article on was not made here in the U.S. It's a well-known fact that most of the world's consumer gadgetry, from mobile phones to laptops to gaming consoles, is created abroad, in places ranging from Japan to Europe and beyond. A visit to one of these tech-centric destinations is a great chance to pick up a one-of-a-kind tech product or grab a great...

Congratulations -- you've made a sound choice indeed. Picking one of America's most storied regions to ramble around in is the easy part, but selecting the routes and spots to see is a bit more difficult.

NYC tops U.S. list of most expensive cities

NYC tops U.S. list of most expensive cities Dec 21st, 2009 at 3:00PM: It's not exactly shocking to see that New York City is the most expensive city in the United States. Groceries, gasoline and other items tend to run a tad more than twice the national average. Whether you rent or buy, you'll spend a fortune in this city, where the average price for a home is $1.1 million and an apartment, on average, will cost $3,400 a month. So, how can so many bloggers live...

CityCenter Las Vegas time lapse video

Dec 18th, 2009 at 10:00AM: After more than three years of construction, and an estimated $8.5-billion budget, CityCenter -- Las Vegas's newest money pit -- opened for business yesterday. Three years isn't that long, really, when you consider the size of the Strip's largest project to date.

Hawaiian airlines offers free flights to the mainland

Hawaiian airlines offers free flights to the mainland Nov 17th, 2009 at 3:30PM: Hawaii seems like a beautiful place to live - great coffee, awesome surf conditions, nearly perfect weather at all times. But, hundreds of miles out in the Pacific, I imagine it starts to feel a bit isolated, especially with the high cost of flights from the islands back to the mainland US. But for those Hawaiian islanders looking to get away to the rest of the US for a while, Hawaiian airlines,...

Some hotel futures at risk

Some hotel futures at risk Jul 26th, 2009 at 12:00PM: The number of hotels defaulting on their loans surged 125 percent in May and June this year. Travel is down (no shit), which has an obvious effect on the top line. When there's no money coming in, it's hard to send cash out to meet some pretty hefty obligations. So, if none comes in, none can go out ... and defaults start to rise. Some high-profile properties have defaulted already, including...

The newest hidden cost in travel: taxes

The newest hidden cost in travel: taxes Jul 7th, 2009 at 5:00PM: Cities and states are pumping up their coffers at the expense of visitors. Unemployment has led to a fall in income taxes, and with consumer spending off, sales taxes aren't bring in what they did in the past. So, municipalities have had to look elsewhere. And, travel is a great place to start! How can a city or state raise money without incurring the wrath of its own voters? You guessed it...

Give a little to get a little at RockResorts May 16th, 2009 at 2:00PM: Is it really goodwill if you're getting something in return? Well, maybe we'll call it a fair trade, then. This summer, RockResorts is offering a "Give & Getaway" package across all nine of its resorts. In exchange for an incredibly low room rate, you just have to chip in some time to help the environment. Projects include trail restoration, working with sustainable local farmers, and...
