New York City, as one of the biggest financial and cultural centers of the world, is full of luxury hotels. These hotels compete for millions of tourists who visit the city annually. However, with the rise of social media, tourists are no longer just checking in to hotels for the accommodations. The hotels should now also have great aesthetics so that they can share pictures of their stay on Instagram and other photo sharing apps. Here are a few of the most instagrammable hotels in New York City: The...

If you’re visiting Vegas for the first time, you’ll doubtless be arriving full of hope, expectation and disposable income. Fast forward seven days and it’s a broken shell of a human being that crawls onto the plane to catch the redeye home. It’s not that you failed to anticipate the potential for finishing with less than you started out with; unless you’re a serious bettor or are seriously deluded, no one plots a course for Nevada with the intention of cleaning out The Bellagio and making off with...

You’ve waited a long time for this, but it is finally time for you to release your inner dad and do that great ol’ American family road trip your wife has been nagging you about. For far too long you’ve told yourself this will be the year you will buy that American RV and hit the open road – wind streaming through your hair (what little is left) and your kids singing your praises in the back (or zoned out playing on iPads). That is the Griswald family...

LA is a sprawling city with many different areas, so three days is barely enough to scratch the surface, but with some careful planning you can certainly see the main highlights. Many people think of Los Angeles as being the home of Hollywood, Universal Studios and the Walk of Fame, but there’s so much more to see beyond the tourist traps and tacky bus tours. Year-round sunshine, tall palm trees, sandy beaches make this an appealing destination for travellers who like to mix the beach with urban exploration....

When it comes to summertime in Seattle there is no shortage of activities. From hiking to kayaking and whatever else outdoorsy people who wear flannel do, you will not be bored in the Emerald City. However, if you happen to get caught in the rain, or don’t do the whole great outdoors thing, or are just love to get tipsy – you can still wear flannel and pretend to fit in. If you are looking for some Seattle weekend activities, there is no better place to throw down...

Despite Palm Springs being relatively close to Los Angeles, there's no easy way to get there without a car. Driving time is usually 2 hours, but if you don't have your own vehicle your only other options are to fly (which can be expensive) or take the Amtrak and the thruway bus (which takes time - 3 1/2 hours). Or so I thought.  A new company called Tesloop is making our lives a whole lot easier with a direct rideshare service between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Imagine Uber Pool but...

Let’s face it – Vegas is the place where hope and dreams go to die. The house always wins - unless you went to MIT and can actually beat math, you will most likely walk away with less money than when you waltzed in like Mussolini. But that is okay, just because you leave penniless doesn’t make you a loser. Being an unemployed 33 year old living off your parents and delusions of accomplishment does. But enough about me, back to the plot - there is much more...

Every Tom, Dick and Harry, or perhaps Tomas, Ricardo, and Hans - the world over, when asked to name American cuisine will no doubt be able to rattle off the ubiquitous hamburger and its arguably less appealing, phallic brother the hot dog. However, American cuisine runs much deeper than cheeseburgers and wieners, and many of its lesser known dishes and daily items, particularly ones consumed by children, foreigners have no idea about. Some pretty common dishes you may not see in the movies may seem intriguing to outright weird....

It's pretty well-known that the USA has quite the 'car culture' with most Americans choosing to travel around on four wheels. 95% of American households have their own vehicle, and those who can't afford one tend to ride public transport. But as a visitor to the US car rentals can be expensive and driving rules can be intimidating, so you might find yourself wanting to get around by alternative means. To guide you, here's how to travel the USA without a car: Ride the Bus Between states you can travel by bus...
