If you live in a CityPASS town, you’ll be happy to learn that many are hailed as the top trick-or-treating cities in America. According to the real estate website Zillow, the number one city for devilish door knocking is San Francisco (which ironically has the least number of kids), followed by Boston, Honolulu, San Jose and Seattle. Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C, Portland, Ore., and Philadelphia. What do we mean by best? The rankings represent cities that will provide the most candy, with the fewest walking and safety risks. That means more full-sized Snickers bars and fewer wormy apples. But for those who feel a little bashful relegating their Halloween celebration to ringing doorbells like a spooky zealot, we offer a few mad pagan celebrations, located in CityPASS cities, for adults and families.

The question of “Does our hotel have Wi-Fi?” likely never passed a traveler’s lips -- mostly because Wi-Fi didn’t even exist. read more »
When I was a child, swimming pools and water fountains were distinct, separate entities. For immersion, you had to find a pool. Whether it was private or public, there were changing rooms and lifeguards and rules. (Unfortunately, the ocean wasn’t an everyday option where I grew up.) Fountains were fun to watch – the water shot all over the place, and sometimes, you could stand in the mist blown your way by a helpful breeze. If you were really lucky – or your accompanying adult looked the other way – you might dip a toe in. read more »
