San Francisco: One of the Best Cities for Couples and Kids

This assertion may seem a little at odds with itself, but San Francisco not only is one of the world’s most romantic cities, it’s also one of the best places to take kids. In a prior blog, I wrote about spending many summer afternoons watching Willie Mays and Willie McCovey play at Candlestick (yes, I’m that old), while tossing back Ghirardelli’s Flicks chocolates out of a cardboard tube. Another treat always was walking along Fisherman’s Wharf, and touring Ripley’s Believe it Or Not museum, which displays a trove of oddities from around the globe. read more »

Ellis Island: Up and running and as fascinating as ever

Ellis Island, the former federal immigration processing center and one of the nation’s most popular and significant historic sites, is up and running again on a limited basis following Hurricane Sandy. The October 2012 storm may have flooded buildings and pummeled the 27.5-acre island in New York Harbor, but my recent visit proved that the place is still as fascinating as ever. read more »

Taken For a Ride in San Francisco: Know Your Muni Options

On a recent business trip to San Francisco I felt kind of silly not knowing the difference between a cable car and a trolley. Which one runs on the overhead wire and which one runs on the track? Which one is the Rice-A-Roni mobile? After pondering these questions with colleagues and getting some expert advice from our friends at San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (or “Muni” as it’s known), I have it straight. The next time I’m in San Francisco, beloved for its iconic cable cars, I’ll know what I’m talking about. read more »

In fact, there is a very good chance, if you happened to be traveling in or out of the state of New York over the last 100 years, Grand Central might have been your first stop over in The Big Apple (the station just celebrated its 100th Anniversary!). read more »

A record 48,000 runners from around the world—elite marathoners, para-athletes, seasoned amateurs and determined first-timers—will test their mettle on a scenic 26.2-mile course that winds through all five boroughs of the City. read more »
