Roadside America: Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire

Roadside America: Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire Oct 19th, 2012 at 12:00PM: Over a hundred years ago, my great-great Uncle Bob built a small cabin to relax overlooking New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee, about two hours from Boston. Little did he know that the Lakes Region would later become a point of pilgrimage for thousands of bikers and gamers each year, as it hosts the annual Laconia Motorcycle week in June and arcade enthusiasts year round to the American...

Mount Washington, The Highest Peak In The Northeastern United States

Mount Washington, The Highest Peak In The Northeastern United States Sep 3rd, 2012 at 12:00PM: As the wind whipped my hair in my face and the bitter chill nipped my skin, I pulled my leather jacket in tighter. Clouds enveloped me, making my line of sight difficult. It was hard to believe that just this morning I had been sitting under clear sunny skies eating a bagel and reading a magazine. I was at the summit of Mount Washington. At 6,288 feet, it is the highest peak in the northeastern...

Bringing My Love Of Backpacking Home

Bringing My Love Of Backpacking Home Sep 2nd, 2012 at 1:00PM: "One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things" - Henry Miller Every year, I spend months saving money for backpacking trips abroad and learning about the foreign cultures I'll be visiting. The farther away from home and the more exotic the destination, the more value I put on the trip. It wasn't that I didn't think cities drivable from my home weren't worthwhile; but I...

Favorite Travel Destinations: Where's Your 'Happy Place?'

Favorite Travel Destinations: Where's Your 'Happy Place?' Jun 26th, 2012 at 11:00AM: Long ago, a friend of mine referred to Colorado as my "spiritual homeland." I frequently jest that I'm spiritually bankrupt except when it comes to the outdoors, and she was referring to my long-held love affair with the Centennial State. My friend was right. There are parts of Colorado that are my "happy place," where I immediately feel I can breathe more deeply, shelve my neuroses and just...

Iconic Road Trips: New England's Coastal Drive

Iconic Road Trips: New England's Coastal Drive May 20th, 2012 at 2:00PM: I met up with a childhood best friend of mine a few years ago in Boston. From there we drove to an ocean-side, dog-friendly resort in Maine that we'd decided to vacation at for a few days. Before we began our drive back to Boston, we realized we had all day to kill, so we chose our route back accordingly. Highway 1 isn't just a West Coast thing – it's pretty great on the East Coast, too....

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...

Five steps to a romantic New Hampshire getaway

Five steps to a romantic New Hampshire getaway Jun 1st, 2011 at 8:00AM: Put the stress and pressure of the workday behind you. This is exactly what was on my mind a few weeks ago. I needed to get away from the daily grind for a bit, and the back roads of New England were calling. I wanted something quiet, remote and relaxing. New Hampshire came to mind immediately. It had been a while since my last trip to New Hampshire – close to 20 years since my last...

Arethusa Falls: A spectacular New Hampshire sight

Arethusa Falls: A spectacular New Hampshire sight May 23rd, 2011 at 8:00AM: For some, the word "hiking" leads to unpleasant thoughts. There are visions of heavy backpacks, ropes and buckets of sweat pouring off your body. For those not in the best of shape, it seems like an unfortunate way to spend a vacation. After all, the purpose of getting away from the daily grind is to recharge, not to wear yourself out. This sort of thinking can be unfortunate. Not all hiking...

New Hampshire hot dog review: Wildcat Inn

New Hampshire hot dog review: Wildcat Inn May 18th, 2011 at 9:00AM: Okay, if you follow my work, you know by now that I need to try a hot dog everywhere I go. Sometimes, it's far more fun to eschew upscale and go right for the lowest common denominator. On my trip to the White Mountains last weekend, I wasn't expecting to indulge. After all, the region, in New Hampshire, is only a few hours from where I grew up ... how could I find something worth actually...

In 2011, the historic park will be home to a modern thrill machine in Untamed. Untamed was designed by German roller coaster designers Gerstlauer. It will be one of the designer's Euro-Fighter 320+ models that have currently only been built in Europe. For...

Five states where you're most likely to hit a deer this fall

Five states where you're most likely to hit a deer this fall Oct 4th, 2010 at 3:30PM: Leaf-peepers are about to hit the road in force – as they always do this time of year. While soaking in the burning foliage colors with your eyes, it's only too easy to forget you're behind the wheel, a situation that can lead to disastrous consequences. There are some states where beautiful foliage and deer prancing on the streets just seem to go together, according to a study by insurance...

Escape the heat at Wentworth by the Sea

Escape the heat at Wentworth by the Sea Jun 24th, 2010 at 3:00PM: On an oppressive day like today (which for me is any day over 80 degrees), New Hampshire starts to sound incredibly attractive. It's a bit cooler than New York – to the point where you can actually feel it. Throw in an upscale dining experience, and that's all the reason you need for a weekend getaway! Head up to the Wentworth by the Sea in New Hampshire to escape the baking heat of the...

Road trip: The best roadside attractions on the east and west coasts

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...

It offers isolation along a miles-long stretch of insanely stunning beach; a skilled chef who produces wonderfully personalized meals; an appealing list of activities,...

Off the beaten path: Road trip to a rarely visited National Park

Off the beaten path: Road trip to a rarely visited National Park Jun 10th, 2010 at 2:00PM: The big national parks are popular for a reason, but here are 10 other national parks and forests you may not have visited, and some fun activities to do while you are there. Consider one of these off-the-beaten-path parks for your summer round-trip: Acadia National Park is a beautiful piece of the Maine coastline. Bring your alarm clock so you can wake early and hike to the top of Cadillac...

Four New England family packages for summer May 11th, 2010 at 1:00PM: The school year is coming to an end, and summer vacation plans are starting to pop up. With heat poised to sweep the nation, the cool New England air (at least relatively cool) makes it an attractive destination.

Four Hotels for a Free Lobster Dinner for Two

Four Hotels for a Free Lobster Dinner for Two Apr 27th, 2010 at 12:00PM: Nothing goes with summer quite like the cracking of lobster shells (and wearing a bib, even if you're a grown man). You can get a lobster anywhere, but if you're within a few hours of the New England coast, the whole experiences changes dramatically. This summer, four hotels are willing to give you and your guest a free lobster dinner when you stay only one night. Of course, it isn't a lobster...
