Mobile, Ala.: New discoveries, beyond the familiar wonders
Next time I’m in Mobile, Ala., I’m changing careers. Going back to try my hand as a crane operator on a giant container ship as soon as Gulf Quest opens.
Montgomery, Ala.: Considering famous folks in new ways
Hey good lookin’. What you got cooking? may swirl in your head when you think of Hank Williams, but visit his Montgomery, Ala., hometown and so will much, much more.
Independence, Mo.: Faith for a journey, and stupendous puppetry too
Church on Sunday’s one thing; a holiday in Missouri religious centers with history is quite another.
Seems helpful to me to get a glimpse of what drives other people’s faith: in family and community, and around the world.
Horse Stamp Inn: Elegant new B&B between St. Marys and Brunswick
Since I don’t have a horse to ride — or to board in the barn — at the luxurious new bed and breakfast inn near Georgia’s coast, I pleased myself swinging.
Three swings for grownups. Not routine A-frame two-seaters. Real swings with wooden seats to pump, legs stretched long.
Eating in Alabama: A journey of good health
What to eat before I die? That’s what Alabama wants me to consider. You too. They already recommended a hundred places for chowing down and for fine dining.
Celebrate America’s roots music with ‘New Harmonies’ in Darien
The Smithsonian’s coming to town was the hue and cry in Darien, Ga. last weekend.
Independence, Mo.: Heading west or lingering longer?
Off they went, going west, and I imagined myself going along, blazing a trail west from Independence, Missouri.
For me, this was a 2012 holiday next door to Kansas City.
Kansas City: Overflowing with music, dance, art and architecture
Spectacularly unlimited. I’d like that to be me, myself and I, but in the meantime I’m content it seems to be so for a heartland-of-America city vastly different in 2012 than when I used to visit in 1970.
Dunham Farms: Elegant and outdoors way to discover Sunbury, Ga.
Finally, a holiday elegant and casual, inspiring and laid back, info loaded and playful, coastal and comfy. All that, plus.
Presidents’ Quarters Inn: Two new restaurants, two historic homes
Narrowing the focus visiting a grand city’s rarely easy. That’s why I sought a Savannah holiday centered on exquisite lodging and brand-new restaurants in easy walking distance.
