'Bike Sharing' Programs Popping Up All Over Cities

Traffic snarls, vague directions and unexpected one-way streets plague many a city traveler, and put a damper on precious vacation time. Instead of succumbing to road rage, take advantage of the public bike programs springing up in CityPASS destinations across North America. For a fee – $5 per day in Toronto, $6 in Boston and $10 in New York – these programs let you borrow bikes from docking stations strategically located throughout the central district. Designed with city cruising in mind, the bikes generally have rugged step-through frames with baskets or luggage racks, upright handle bars, responsive hand brakes, adjustable seats, three speeds, and the appropriate reflectors and safety lamps. read more »

Fishy Adventures at Boston's New England Aquarium

It ain't easy being a mom. You find yourself doing things you never, in your wildest dreams, thought you might one day do—and I don't mean working on your all-over tan on a secluded beach in Fiji. I'm talking more like scraping purple wax crayon munch out of new molars set in the screaming, near-rabid jaws of an 18-month-old. read more »

Brrr! Baby, It’s Cold Inside Boston’s Frost Ice Bar

The frigid temps that have recently beset Boston and the rest of the East Coast—with wind chills dipping way below zero—might lead you to believe that one might not want to visit a drinking establishment made completely out of ice, especially at this incredibly chilly time of year.

Halloween Thrills and Chills in CityPASS Cities

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. read more »

How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel

How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel The travel industry has come a long way in just a few short years. A little over a decade ago, travel meant hopping in the family car with a glove compartment full of maps or boarding a plane for several hours, touching down at a destination with loved ones far from home, phones, and television. 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 »

Island Hopping, New England Style

I grew up in New England, and some of my best childhood memories are from summer vacations by the shore: playing on sandy beaches, having clambakes at sunset, catching fireflies at twilight, taking hikes through the woods, picnicking in grassy fields, and taking ferry boat rides across the harbor. While I’ll never get those precious sun-drenched childhood days back (don’t we all wish we could!), I can help my own kids create seashore memories like these on a day trip or camping trip to the Boston Harbor Islands, a group of islands and peninsulas just off the coast of Massachusetts. read more »
