In focus: Where to stay

It’s summertime and that means trip-planning is in full swing.  In Europe, August is the most popular month for travel, especially for its residents. Americans continue vacationing into September when Labor Day gives them a little more additional time. In the U.S., cities like San Francisco and New York are popular choices. Miami tends to start its main season in mid-October. But all of this begs the question of where to stay. We like hotels for their comfort and services, especially in countries where we don’t speak the language. Given the choice, we prefer prime location over budget prices because we feel that if you’re too far from the action then you haven’t really experienced a great city. Having said that, we’ve just posted an In Focus section for every one of our Clued In “city extras” pages.  Simply use the menu bar above to view them.

Happy traveling!  Dean & Andie

There’s a new tour in town and it’s magical!

Looking for something new and original to do in New York City?  Manhattan has incredible museums just waiting to be discovered, but if you want to experience one in quite a unique way, try one of the many mysterious, entertaining, and fun interactive tours offered by  Fable & Lark.  Choose from themes like their Griffins, Goblets, and Gold wizarding tour, or an “old school” Met tour inspired by story of The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.  Kids love this kind of thing of course, but they’re not the only ones who can enjoy it.  Fable & Lark is about to launch other themed tours soon, like ones based on Lord of the Rings and even Game of Thrones. You may never look at museums the same way again. Book a date and time through their handy website, which offers in-depth info on all of their upcoming events.
