Cities That Surprise: Rochester, NY

“Cities That Surprise” highlights places across America that defied or exceeded our expectations, for whatever reason. Today, Allison Sass tells us why under all that snow, Rochester, New York is a hidden gem!

After graduating college, I spent two years living and working in Rochester, NY, a city best known for its now-bankrupt Kodak national headquarters, horrible winters, and being one of the three cities in the U.S. that’s actually cloudier than Seattle. Want to visit yet?? Keep reading »

When most people visualize their dream vacation, Caribbean beaches and margaritas on a lounge chair come to mind. For British writer and cyclist Lois Pryce, however, her dream trip equated to something a little different — a solo motorcycle trip across Iran. Pryce spent this September on a three-week tour of the country, her curiosity fueled by the conflicting advice she’d heard about traveling there. “On the one hand I’d hear awful things about women being stoned for adultery, the highest rate of execution in the world, and nuclear enriching,” she told the UK’s Telegraph. “Then overland travelers would say Iran was wonderful and their favorite country, and that difference intrigued me.” Keep reading »

I Want To Go To There: Tanglewood Farm, A Miniature Animal Petting Zoo

When I found out that Tanglewood Farm, a farm and petting zoo dedicated solely to miniature livestock, existed, I literally squealed with delight. When I found out it was in northern Georgia, which is easily within day trip distance from me, I started hyperventilating. How could I not?! Tanglewood is an entire farm teeming with miniature alpacas, goats, horses, donkeys, cows, chickens, and even a buffalo(!). All told, there are over 100 fun-size animals which visitors can pet, feed, and possibly snuggle with if they really hit it off. Well, I know where I’m going next weekend. Who’s coming with me?

Airport Layover

Over the weekend I found myself enduring a 3-hour layover in what may be the worst airport in the world. I’m not going to name names, but it’s in Chicago and rhymes with “Bidway.” I mean, it might have been bearable if it weren’t for the sweltering concourse, the long lines for every bathroom, the astonishing lack of coffee, and frequent last-minute terminal changes that sparked frantic human stampedes. As it was, I felt like I had been banished to a particularly unpleasant section of hell for a never-ending afternoon. Here are a few ways I passed the time, and a few ways I wish I would have passed the time. Feel free to use this list next time you find yourself stuck in a terrible airport for a terrible layover…  Keep reading »

Buckle Up!

Whenever I fly, I take the same airline and I have their vanilla in-flight safety video memorized by now. Yawn. But with their song-and-dance-filled safety video, Virgin America might actually make us attention to those oxygen mask instructions! Have you ever seen more pep over buckling your seatbelt or inflating your life vest?  My only complaint is that I wish flight attendants actually sang in the aisles.
