'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 »

The Beauty of The Bay Lights Shine for You

The Bay Bridge, connecting Oakland and San Francisco, has endured since 1936 as the Bay Area’s plain older sister: strong, hard working and taken for granted, while the Golden Gate is celebrated as an orange beauty in the mist — the subject of songs, photographs and hailed as the monument of reaching the West Coast. Although it’s just six months older, is longer and accommodates more traffic, the Bay Bridge has never enjoyed the same place in our nation’s folklore as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. read more »

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 »
