12. How 10 Cadillacs got nose-deep in Amarillo dirt — and why you should see themПн., 18 июня[−]

A group of artists called Ant Farm took on a simple, powerful task in 1974: They would bury 10 Cadillacs in the dirt of Amarillo, near Old Route 66, noses underground, tail fins turned toward the Texas sky.

13. These apps help defeat barriers and keep you on the roadПн., 18 июня[−]

Of all the memories of my first trip to New Orleans, this stands out: wandering through the French Quarter in search of an upscale restaurant that offered wheelchair access.

14. His heroics happened not in the air but at a hamburger standПн., 18 июня[−]

Unlike some flight attendants, I’ve never swung open the door of a disabled aircraft and directed an evacuation. I’ve never rushed to the aid of shrieking passengers after the cabin pressure dropped precipitously.

I’ve never wrestled a shoe-bomber, performed CPR on a toddler, fought a raging galley...

Happy 242nd birthday, America. To get the party going, we’ve chosen a few events that sound particularly fun.

17. It's time for all airports to come into the 21st century, just as some already haveВс., 17 июня[−]

Loved the concise and well-written article by Dean R. Owen on what to know before you go [“The Flier’s Guide, June 3].

This gives me hope that the airports around the country are finally getting it that we need flying to be based on technology from this century, not last century.

I would like to...


18. Getting a California Real ID driver's license on the first day it's offered? Not a problemВт., 23 янв.[−]

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.

Last fall the jointly owned...

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.

Now the 49-year-old ski guide spends part of the year flitting from peak to peak in a juiced-up...

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...

More grumpy travelers come from Washington, D.C., than any other location in the country, with Colorado and Oregon second and third, according to a study of hotel reviews nationwide.
