Every month, Global Traveler covers an airport from around the globe, highlighting its initiatives for business travelers and families alike.

Founded by David Raymond, the original Phillie Phanatic, the Mascot Hall of Fame started as an online-only project. Yearly inductions took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In late 2018, the Mascot Hall of Fame found a physical home in Whiting, Indiana. Last weekend I attended the

While the calendar says it’s spring, the weather in upstate New York hasn’t caught up yet. My husband and I were looking for something to do on a dreary, gray, not-so-spring-like Saturday. So we did what we normally do when we’re bored — venture out
