Parking in New York City—there’s an app for that
Traveling with Bob & Sandy Nesoff Bob and Sandy Nesoff 8/01/2013 at 12:22PM

Parking in New York, especially Manhattan, can be as frustrating as trying to figure out that last calculus exam you had in college…and never studied for.  And that’s not even mentioning the expense. A new system can take some of the headache out of it and reduce the stress and tension. Want to catch a [...]

With the weather challenging the hottest temperatures on record and even Sam Champion breaking a sweat, it’s hard to think of snow on the mountains and strapping on skis.  But the folks at Windham Mountain are digging deep into their corporate pocket to insure a quality experience.

From some pretty modest beginnings the Disney empire has grown to become one of the most easily recognized symbols in the world.  The little rodent with the big ears started life in what was almost a stick-figure cartoon, “Steamboat Willie.” Today Willie, better known as Mickey Mouse, not only entertains children throughout the United States, [...]

The United States, more so than any other country, has arguably the widest selection of dining opportunities.  Unfortunately all too often we fall into a rut and visit the same locations time after time. It’s got to stop! There are times when eating out can become an experience…not just for the taste buds, but for [...]

Manga!  Fres!  Eat! No matter what language you say it in, the intonation is the same…eat up and enjoy yourself. New York City is arguably the most diverse city in the world when it comes to a cross-section of ethnicities…especially food.  There are food festivals and street fairs offering everything from fried plantains to gyros.

Starting in 1492 the hottest route in the cruise market was across the Atlantic and the Caribbean basin.  That’s pretty much the same today as it was 521 years ago. Accommodations back then were somewhat sparse.  Bunks were either wooden racks or hammocks strung between two posts.  Meals—when they were served-gave passengers two choices: “yes [...]

If ever there was a family destination that has kept its finger firmly planted on the pulse of the public, the Walt Disney World complex and all of its entities in Central Florida is the place.

Television and the movies have suddenly discovered the world of fantasy, but with a rather macabre twist.  Nothing is as it seems in the world of make believe and dangers lurk behind every bush. It is a very dark take on what should be fun for young and old. One of the great destinations that [...]

Spain, different worlds in one country

For many years we resisted the impulse to take part in pre-programmed group tours to the foreign destinations we visited.  It seemed too reminiscent of the 1969 Movie: “If it’s Tuesday it must be Belgium.” The comedy focused on a group of travelers participating in a harried European tour as part of a mass movement [...]
