3. If you fib to the feds and get caught, as this couple did, you probably aren't going to become a Trusted TravelerПн., 20 авг.[−]

Cuba sings a siren song for those who long to see it before it’s spoiled. These days, it’s easier to travel there than it was in, say, 2014.

The Treasury Department regulations you must comply with today are less onerous than in times past, but these days, you still can’t go to Cuba for the fun...

4. Travel letters: Santa Barbara and Montecito hotel rates, like summer temps, are way too highВс., 19 авг.[−]

I cannot believe that the great loss of the Miramar in Montecito, Calif., for middle-class family vacations has morphed into an $850-a-night property [“Posh Playground,” by Rosemary McClure, Aug. 12].

On a teacher's salary with a couple of kids we could go there for a few nights and enjoy the heck...

The deserts are up. The islands are down.

In a year marked by fire and heat waves, January-through-June visitor counts from California’s national parks show that Joshua Tree and Death Valley both drew more visitors than the year before. In the Channel Islands, the opposite was true.

Across the...

15. If you like ancient trees, fish and barbecue, you'll love tiny Big Pine, Calif.Чт., 16 авг.[−]

My husband, Paul, likes to fish; I like trees. We compromised over tangy barbecue as we sat at a roadside picnic table in full view of U.S. 395. He would get to experience a new-to-him back-country creek 10 miles west of tiny Big Pine, and I would get an all-day visit at the Ancient Bristlecone...

16. Escapes: Santa Barbara hotels take chic (and prices) to new levels, but don't despairЧт., 16 авг.[−]

As pleasurable as it is, travel is not without its conundrums.

Meanwhile, budget airlines...

Real ID, the federally compliant driver’s license that can be used as identification for getting on a plane starting in October 2020, became available Monday in California, and I got one.

19. At Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, it's all about the terrainВс., 21 янв.[−]

At Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, it’s not location, location, location, it’s terrain, terrain and more terrain: a combined 6,000 acres of some of the most dependably snowy, scare-yourself-silly inbound skiing and snowboarding among U.S. destination resorts.

20. Iceland’s remote Deplar Farm delights heli-skiers and adventurersВс., 21 янв.[−]

Alan Bernholtz grew up in the San Fernando Valley and surfed off Malibu. But the ski slopes of the Sierra — and later Colorado, Alaska, the Andes and the Alps — lured him away from the Pacific Ocean.

21. Jasper is Canada's winter wanderlandВс., 21 янв.[−]

Snowflakes tumbled lazily in the light of the train as it inched toward the Jasper rail station, where half a dozen elk foraged. They come for grain that freight trains spill on the tracks, a steward had told me on the 18-hour train ride northeast from Vancouver. The elk didn’t even raise their...
