Soar with Reading stopped in Fort Lauderdale this week to treat local kids with a reading by @Barefoot Books author Laurie Krebbs and performance by @PBS KIDS’ Mr. Steve. The program aims to ensure kids everywhere have access to books – and you can help. Share the name of your favorite children’s book and we will donate one to a child in need.
Think Seattle’s all rainy weather and coffee shops? You’re not totally wrong – it’s got plenty of both those things – but the Emerald City is also so much more. And dreary or sunny, morning, noon or night, we’ve got some locally approved destinations that are perfect for your upcoming trip.
Looking for an authentic Cuban experience devoid of tourist traps and big resorts? Head to the eastern city of San Isidoro de Holguin, where industrial meets tropical. Though Holguin is Cuba’s fourth largest city, a day is the perfect amount of time to explore its colonial-era buildings and open spaces that have inspired the nickname “City of Parks.”
Winding up in the Windy City? We hope you packed your appetite! The number of amazing restaurants in Chicago amounts to way more food than you could eat on a single trip – or maybe even in a lifetime – but a few choice spots have the added distinction of being local favorites. Morning, noon, night; west, north, east; try as many of our picks as your stomach will allow.
