  • Seattle Seattle

    • From: hoosierfan1997
    • Description:

      Set between two major mountain ranges, the Olympics and the Cascades, with the Puget Sound's fjord-like waters to the west and massive Lake Washington to the east, Seattle has one of the most dramatic settings of any city in the country.

      The frequent moody cloud cover can hide those jagged mountains but on clear days 14,411-foot (4297 meter) Mount Rainier can be seen from the city. Reuters correspondents with local knowledge help visitors get the most out of a short stay in the northwestern U.S. city.


      Friday
      6 p.m. - If the clouds have lifted even a bit, there's no better place to watch the sunset over Elliott Bay than from the Seattle Art Museum's nine-acre Olympic Sculpture Park on the downtown waterfront. Besides wandering about the 20 sculptures from major artists like Alexander Calder, Louise Nevelson and Richard Serra, you can enjoy further views of the changeable bay by strolling along the paved trail through nearby Myrtle Edwards Park.


      7 p.m. - Head up to the Capitol Hill neighborhood and start the weekend with cocktails at Tavern Law, named by GQ Magazine as one of the 25 best bars in America.


      There are plenty of handcrafted cocktails to enjoy in the Prohibition-era surroundings, but celebrate the start of your getaway with a custom champagne cocktail. Peruse the menu. The oxtail banh mi sandwich, based on Vietnamese tradition, will give you a taste of the Pacific Rim influence that figures in so many Seattle menus.


      9 p.m. - Seattle takes its jazz seriously and there's no better spot than Dimitriou's Jazz Alley downtown to hear it. With any luck, a musician like Grammy Award-winning Arturo Sandoval will be holding court. Or maybe you'll catch the funky horn-driven Tower of Power.


      Saturday
      9 a.m. - Fortify yourself for the day ahead with one of the best Mexican breakfasts anywhere at Senor Moose in the lively Ballard neighborhood. The crowded restaurant offers breakfast specialties culled from regions throughout Mexico. Try the outstanding huevos motuleos with black beans inspired by the Yucatan breakfast staple. Even though it's early, go ahead and get an order of the flawless guacamole and chips. It's surprisingly good with a cup of Senor Moose's strong coffee.

      11 a.m. - Get a sense of Ballard's historic status as Seattle's Scandinavian neighborhood at the Nordic Heritage Museum and at stops such as the shop Scandinavian Specialties, where you can pick up house-made cured meats, homemade Swedish meatballs and a bowl of traditional yellow split pea soup.


      Ballard also has a lively shopping scene.  KAVU, a local Seattle clothing and gear company, offers the quintessential Northwest look, with hip interpretations of outdoorsy style clothes. Stop at The Secret Garden Bookshop which has a carefully chosen selection of books for children and adults. For lunch, head to the nearby Ray's Boathouse Cafe with views for which Seattle is famous, along with the seafood.


      3 p.m. - Spend the next two hours absorbing more of Asia's influence on Seattle at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The museum, which is situated in lovely Volunteer Park, showcases exquisite art from various centuries and numerous counties in Asia.

      5 p.m. - Continue your exploration of Seattle's hot cocktail scene at the Zig Zag Cafe tucked away behind the Pike Place Market. Try the One Legged Duck, a blend of Rye Whiskey, Dubonnet, Mandarine Napoleon and Fernet Branca. Order a plate of marinated olives to go with it, or try the cheese plate. Much of the food on the menu is sourced at the Pike Place Market.

      7 p.m. - Since you're already at Pike Place, head to Matt's in the Market on the third floor of the Corner Market Building, where the food matches the view. Meat lovers can try the Pork Belly Confit with kimchi broth. For those who prefer seafood try the clams with chorizo and cava or order anything with Dungeness crab or perhaps some oysters on the half shell. For a larger plate try the seafood stew.


      9 p.m. - For a great evening head to the Triple Door in the heart of downtown Seattle, which offers music ranging from pop chanteuse crooners to Apple Jam, a group presenting a critically praised tribute to the Beatles.  A great wine list is available, along with excellent cocktails and Southeast Asian inspired plates. The satays are a perennial favorite.

       


      Sunday

      10 a.m. - For brunch try Salty's at Alki in West Seattle. It can be crowded, but the views and lavish assortment of Northwest foods on offer more than make up for it, including piles of Dungeness crab and smoked salmon, along with brunch staples like Eggs Benedict and Belgian waffles. Afterwards walk for miles along the waterfront through Alki, Seattle's premiere people watching neighborhood and beach scene. Seals often pop their heads up here, and you'll see ferries chugging off to local islands.

      1 p.m. - Seattle is a book lover's town, and readers have many fine bookstores to visit. Seattle Mystery Bookshop in historic Pioneer Square is one of the best and offers both new and used books. Passionate, friendly staff can help you find the perfect read.

      For an excellent general selection, Elliott Bay Book Company on Capitol Hill has the goods, many with staff recommendations, plus a great selection of unique cards. It's easy to lose yourself in the stacks, so keep an eye on the clock if you need catch a flight.

      ·         Downtown parking is expensive and is challenging to find. Keep it simple -- walk, ride Metro Buses or take a cab.

      ·         One-way streets and steady construction can cause direction confusion; ask for directions.

      ·         The city's scenic waterfront-area hills are steep. Pack each family member's most comfortable shoes.

      ·         At dusk, avoid historic Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market areas (hangouts for rowdy, alcohol-slugging vagrants).

      ·         During late spring and summer, throngs of visitors and cruise passengers frequent popular spots; arrive early in the morning. Arrange a meeting place if family members get separated.

  • Sardinia, Italy Vacation Sardinia, Italy Vacation

    • From: Sammie Clemmons
    • Description:

      Sardinia is an Italian region, actually a large island between the Italian peninsula, the Balearic islands and south of the French island of Corsica. It was home to the old mysterious Nuragic civilization in around 1500 BC, and there are ruins of that civilization all around the island to this day.

      It is well loved for it's Mediterranean beauty, geographic position, and its approximately 1,800 kilometers of coastline. Sardinia is one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean area for people who enjoy aquatic sports, swimming, hiking, climbing, camping, boating or any other outdoor activities. The prime tourist season is summer, especially August, because that is the warmest month on the island. The key to Sardinia's attraction is the natural beauty that exists on the whole of the island.

      The Sardinian people are renowned for their generosity and hospitality. They are always happy to meet tourists and show them around their beautiful island. There are also special meals like the Sardinian dish 'porcheddu', exotic 'uova di ricci' or 'uova di muggine', and the people are proud to show these off.

      Those who visit Sardinia will not soon forget it, as it is one of the most beautiful and unique places in the entire world. The rocks on the island of Sardinia range in a wide variety of colors-red,silver,black etc, and that adds to Sardinia's beauty from afar. In addition to the natural good looks of the island, it also is home to a wide variety of animals. You will see flamingos, seals, and wild horses on the island.

      When looking for things to do, you do not need to look far. You can fish from a boat, or a cliff, or a dock in many places. You can go mountain climbing, reef diving, sailing, or water-skiing depending on your preferences. While on the island, do not miss the pink sand beach; it is one of the major attractions at Porto Ferro, close to the classic Sardinian town of Nuoro, which also contains the ruins of the Phonecian city of Tharros.

      Some tourists come to Sardinia to shop for carpets, exquisite lace, woods, and carvings, as these are all specialties of the island people. Whatever you like to do on vacation, chances are Sardinia has it. Tourists can choose from so many Sardinian activities that every vacation can be different, from laid back and relaxed to energetic and adventurous.

    • Description:

      Hunter, NY is a group of "Mountaintop" villages - Haines Falls, Tannersville, Hunter, and Jewett.  Together, along with many other small country communities, they make up the Northern Catskills - about 1 hour south of Albany and 2 hours north of NYC.  Summer and winter recreation opportunities are extensive.  From fishing, swimming, hiking, biking (mountain and regular), boating, and camping in the summer to skiing (alpine and cross country), snomobiling, ice climbing, snowshoeing and other snow-fun.  This year a new Zip-line was added to the attractions at Hunter Mountain.  This photo of an old abandoned railroad right-of-way, is a bike trail and 4-wheeler path in spring, summer, and fall, and a snomobile and cross country ski trail in winter. Known as the "Bike Path" it is just another recreational asset in the Hunter region.  This photo shows the path in early fall, 2009

  • Breakfast at 1000 Island Lake Breakfast at 1000 Island Lake

    • From: aaroman1
    • Description:

      Thousand Island Lake in the Ansel Adams Wilderness, Sierra Nevada, California

      This backpacking trip fulfilled a 30 year old dream to return to one of the most beautiful lakes in the California Sierra Nevada, at the Northern junction of the Pacific Crest and John Muir trails.

      Crawling out of your tent, the chill in the air and sore, stiff morning muscles are forgotten as you turn and see this beautiful lake in the morning light, located at an elevation of 9,833 feet. Oh, did I forget to mention 12,936 foot Banner Peak providing an awe inspiring backdrop to the view?
