A Very Brady Saturday

I spent last Saturday with the Brady Bunch, thanks to Wizard World. Actually, it was half of the Brady Bunch, but it was a fun, nostalgic trip with one of television's most popular families.

Beach Town

Two weeks ago we wrapped the November issue of Global Traveler magazine, our North America issue, and in two more weeks it will be in your hands. We cover everything from Caribbean islands to family-friendly ski resorts and cities from Toronto to Nashville. My colleague and senior editor Jan Hecht wrote a great article about America's undiscovered beaches . . . a favorite topic of mine. My recent blogs have shared a recent family trip to the Oregon Coast, which features plenty of lovely, quiet beaches and cute little towns along its 363 miles of shoreline.

Touring River House at Odette’s

As a Bucks County native, I’ve always known of the legacy of Chez Odette’s, later named Odette’s Restaurant, situated on the banks of the Delaware River in New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Pizza Debates

On the series premiere of Emily in Paris on Netflix, the characters discuss Chicago pizza. One describes it as “quiche made of cement,” to which another responds, “Oh, no, you must have gone to Lou Malnati's.” That little exchange reignited long-running pizza debates.

Fall Weekend Getaway

Last weekend I took a much needed getaway to the Jersey Shore. As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, I love going to Ocean City, N.J., any chance I get. I left on a Friday morning and got there around 12 p.m., with plenty of time to still sit and enjoy the beach.
