Get away to Cumberland Island

While I was sifting through the hoards of conch shells, disc clams, and horseshoe crab remnants left on Cumberland Island National Seashore by a generous surf, something in the distance caught my eye: two majestic creatures at water’s edge, standing so close together that they appeared as one hulking beast.

Get away to Canyon Ranch

“I’d highly recommend the shrimp pita,” the waiter says. “It’s under 500 calories.”I see it on the sepia-toned menu, along with the minuscule mahi mahi wrap and the five-ounce portions of beef tenderloin and tuna. Next to each item is a series of numbers that, according to a handy decoder, lists not just the price but also the amount of carbohydrates, protein, fat, fiber, sodium, and gluten in the dish.

Get away to Washington, D.C.

Gazing at the cherry trees in our nation’s capital may be a touristy cliche, but strolling among the blossoms in full blush, usually between late March and early April, tends to silence objections.

Fantasyland at Disney World

Until two months ago, my three-year-old son had no idea who Mickey Mouse was. Or Donald Duck. Or Dumbo. Casey’s knowledge of Disney iconography was limited to Cinderella’s castle, and only because its image served as the opening shot of all of our Pixar movies.

Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort

With its platinum blond sand, cerulean water, and sexy New Urbanist architecture, the Panhandle is the supermodel of Florida beaches. But beauty, as your mother warned you, isn’t everything.

Shell Island Fish Camp

On the newsstands in Wakulla County, Florida, home of the Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin’ Festival you’ll find Rifle & Rod rather than Garden & Gun. The glossy’s curvy ampersand is just as elegant as G&G’s, but R&R’s ads are for trucks and tractors rather than rarefied bourbons.

Eden Roc, Miami Beach

No place sets the mood for Miami Beach’s retro flamboyance quite like the lobby of the Eden Roc Renaissance hotel.

Cayman Islands

Our forty-five-foot boat was chugging through the North Sound of Grand Cayman, the water an otherworldly turquoise beneath a clearing sky, when we heard a splash off the starboard side.

Nashville for the Holidays

First there was Bon Appétit’s feature in February, which dubbed Nashville “the coolest, tastiest city in the South.” The New York Times gushed over the town in June, causing the local alt weekly, the Nashville Scene, to bristle over excessive use of the word hipster.

The Southern Staycation

So you’ve got out-of-town guests who came south looking for moonlight and magnolias. Where do you take them for a dose of local color in a metropolitan place like Atlanta?
