Your Bay of Fundy whalewatching cruise might start at this Marina, Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia

Begin your trip in historic Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia. Its seafaring and shipping heritage thrives to this day and the bustling harbor area should be one of your stops, as should the delightful public gardens. Its maritime climate makes for a welcome relief from oppressive summer heat in parts of the U.S. There are numerous scenic drives leading to the charming towns that dot Nova Scotia's coastline. Venture further afield to disover the land of the New World's original French settlers (Acadians, the ancestors of Louisiana's Cajuns) and where French is still spoken today. During the summer, take a whale watching boat trip. Finally, spend a few days in the rugged natural splendor of the "other" part of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton.

New Orleans

I grew up in this special city! Stay in a quaint B & B or a grand hotel, as you wish...away from the bustle and action or right in the middle of it. Dine in some of the world's best restaurants, from the famous to the holes in the wall and neighborhood haunts that have been reborn after Katrina. Follow in the footseps of history all over town during the day, then tap your toes or get up and dance to great music into the wee hours. Discover antique treasures and acclaimed artwork to be found in the city's shops and boutiques. The best way to help the city is to contribute to its tourism economy. But you may also wish to swing a hammer while you're there to make another kind of contribution, that of your own labors.

New York Cultural Overdose

There are hundreds of hotels in the city, but maybe you'd like to have your own space and rent an apartment by the night or by the week? Or get the feel for a particular neighborhood and try a Manhattan B & B?! I'll give you the scoop not only on the big theater productions you've already heard about, but on the dozens you haven't, from off-off Broadway to "just-off Broadway" theater companies that create many of the shows that eventually move to Broadway. Take in a dance performance, opera, cabaret, a night at the clubs? Visit some of the captivating smaller museums: you've already done MOMA and the Guggenheim? But have you seen the Neue Gallerie, the Frick Collection, or the Cooper-Hewitt? How about a photography museum, or one devoted to the city of New York, or a fashion collection? A trip to Brooklyn? When I say I love New York, I mean it!

Escape from it all: Negril, Jamaica

Imagine yourself in an Architectural Digest-caliber private villa on the western tip of Jamaica, where you can enjoy a custom-prepared, candlelit dinner every night as you take in the spectacular sunset. This lush estate sleeps ten in the main house and guest house, and is located right on the Caribbean Sea. Snorkel in your "backyard" on a whim, or just relax in the gentle breeze as you loll about on your divan at the lanai. All your cares will disappear as soon as you cross the threshold of this luxurious Negril retreat. Attractive nightly rental rates! Staffed!
