Being crabby is just fine with Charleston’s Tia Clark

CHARLESTON, S.C. – One of the coolest aspects of a crabbing trip with Tia Clark is blithely ignoring the “No Crabbing, No Fishing” signs on the riverfront dock in downtown Charleston that is her domain. That alone makes you feel special, but it only sets the stage for Clark to instruct you, boost your ego, affirm your skills and probably send you home with a bag of succulent crabmeat.

In Pictures: Charleston aquarium entertains with much more than fish

CHARLESTON, S.C. – When Charleston’s abundant history and eye-catching architecture have worn thin on a family’s younger members, the city can charm them with another attraction, the South Carolina Aquarium, whose more than 5,000 residents go far beyond the many species of fish you expect to see.

San Diego’s inventory of attractions is huge and diverse

SAN DIEGO – The NFL’s Chargers may have abandoned San Diego – they decamped up the coast to Los Angeles in 2017 – but their departure didn’t really diminish the visitor appeal of this seaside city in the far southwest corner of the country.

San Diego Air & Space Museum puts you in aviation’s cockpit

SAN DIEGO – The A-12 Blackbird spy plane and the Convair Sea Dart on display outside the San Diego Air & Space Museum are silent, but your ears often hear the unmistakable roar of giant airplane engines as you near the historic building.

Detour for doughnuts and more in Western Kentucky

GUTHRIE, Ky. – Refueling your vehicle, stretching your legs and getting a snack are the normal reasons for taking a break on a long interstate highway trip, but what if that snack was something more memorable that a bag of chips and a soft drink?

Quimixto Mexico
Spending a quiet day in Quimixto, Mexico
“QUIMIXTO, Mexico – The bus ride from busy Puerto Vallarta to quiet Boca de Tomatlan takes about 30 minutes, and it would take perhaps 10 minutes more to get to even quieter Quimixto – if a road went to this little divot on Me.
Exploring African Americans’ long role in military service
“HATTIESBURG, Miss. – A modest building erected in World War II as a segregated USO club now examines African Americans’ long involvement in the U.S military.
Night of the Iguana Puerto Vallarta market

Meet the makers at this Puerto Vallarta market
PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico – When you wind your way through the Olas Altas Farmers Market, one shopping consideration is certain – every item you see it offered by whoever made it.

It’s sweet, spicy and funny at Wisconsin’s National Mustard Museum
MADISON, Wisc. – The University of Wisconsin isn’t the only institution of higher learning in Wisconsin’s capital city. Poupon U. makes its mark on the community, too – usually a yellow one that’s difficult to remove from light-colored clothing.
Six musical birthplaces across America
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville’s nickname is Music City, earned largely from the evolution of the country music recording industry and the Grand Ole Opry’s worldwide fame, but cities across the U.S. are the wellsprings of several styles of music. One of them – Bristol, Tenn. – even lays claim to being “the birthplace of country music.”
Buy your Mardi Gras supplies at the ‘Barnum and Bailey’ hardware stores
BOSSIER CITY, La. – It makes no sense that a hardware store is a major supplier of Mardi Gras beads and king cakes until you learn that the hardware store in question is in a state that takes Mardi Gras very, very seriously and where plenty of things don’t necessarily make sense.
