All over America, there are wild and wacky alternatives to traditional places to stay when we travel. B&B's and small inns are emerging from all sorts of buildings that had previous many cases, about as far from "places to stay" as you could possibly imagine.

Spring has sprung! With it comes a number of very interesting - and, often, unusual - "experiences" this year! And this is the best time of year to do, experience, and see them!

It's that time of year, again, when there's a run on flower shops - and probably jewelry shops, too - all over America. Valentine's Day!

Time to break out the skis, the boots, the sweaters and the ski jackets. Time to check the bindings. Time to pick a skiing spot, and to make the plane reservations.

When it comes to fall foliage, America is truly blessed...with spectacular, breath-taking autumn scenes of falling leaves of every color in the rainbow...and then some.

There's something very special about late summer. In many places, there's the first cool hint of fall in the air, and the promise of a season bountiful with colors and crops.

Nothing says "America" - especially to the rest of the world - like authentic Western ranches. And there must be something to this. Because authentic Western ranches are not a thing of the past.

With the official start of summer this Memorial Day weekend, are you looking for an out-of-the-ordinary summer escape, away from the crowds? Well...there are some great ones!

Europe, perhaps more than any other continent, is known for its picturesque old villages. There are so many, in fact, that we could easily do a travel column on the Top 10 villages in each country!

Ahhh...Spring Break. The time when a young man's and a young woman's fancy turns to...Hey, wait a minute! What about us adults?

Is there anything as romantic as a beautiful hotel or lodge sitting right on a scenic lake? Anything as peaceful? Well, maybe...but it might be hard to find!

I love interesting hotels. It doesn't matter where they are, or if they're famous or unknown. If they're interesting - if they have some element that makes them unique - I love it.

Here are my personal picks for the Top 10 cities on Earth. Some of them may surprise you. But all of them touch me on some level (or on several levels!)

Art, they say, is a personal matter. And what's "High Art" to one person could, of course, be "junk" to another. But what about "artsy" towns?

The holiday is now celebrated in many countries around the world. And here, in my opinion, are the top 10 places in which to celebrate it...

Mid-Sized cities often have many of the advantages of larger cities, but less of the disadvantages (rush-hour traffic, etc.).

Our last travel column was on my Top 10 ski resorts in America. But America's hardly the only place where the weather is cold, the skiing is cool, the nightlife is hot, and the winter-wonderland scenery is breathtaking.
