    You might not expect to find farm-to-table dining in Las Vegas. But that’s exactly why tourists are lining up at a rundown corner a few blocks near the old casinos in the town’s seedy core. It takes visitors arriving by cab a few minutes to locate the nouveau diner Eat on the ground floor of a motel-style apartment complex. But this is Las Vegas’ first neighborhood restaurant with an emphasis on freshness and locally sourced ingredients.

    As a city regularly ranked the most expensive in the Middle East, you are going to have a hard time enjoying Tel Aviv’s plethora of hopping clubs, swanky bars and mouthwatering restaurants without making a major dent in your wallet. But if you are ready to pack a lunch, use your legs and lose yourself in the seaside city’s urban vibe, you’ll find there is still plenty to take in without shelling out a shekel.

The main section of the museum reopened April 5.

    Catching a Wednesday matinee on Broadway is so last year. The hot thing now is Thursday afternoon shows. Three shows making the move are “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” “Mamma Mia!!” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” “Matilda the Musical” may experiment with the idea this summer.

    Bayeux boasts D-Day history, ancient tapestryApr 6, 2014 12:00 AM
    There’s a digital clock on display outside the visitors center in the charming Normandy town of Bayeux — but it doesn’t tell the time. It’s counting down the days until the 70th anniversary of D-Day in June. But World War II-related tourism comprises only part of the attraction of Normandy, a region rich in history and natural beauty, not to mention the famous Bayeux Tapestry. The countryside also features quaint cities and centuries-old châteaus, as well as apple farms and windswept coastlines. Bayeux, about three hours by bus from Paris, is a great place to start.

     
  • In-flight entertainment rises to a whole new levelApr 6, 2014 12:00 AM
    If you were lucky enough to be on a certain Virgin-Australia flight from Brisbane to Sydney recently, you would have boarded to the chorus from the musical, “The Lion King.” And it wouldn’t have been piped in music or a bunch of spring break juniors singing off key. It would have been the actual cast from the production playing in Sydney. Talk about taking in-flight entertainment up a notch.

    Loreto: Quiet gem on Mexico's Baja PeninsulaMar 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    Efforts to turn the seaside village of Loreto, Mexico, into a major destination have been going on for years. So far, though, the results have been limited, and that in itself makes it worth visiting. Loreto is already a gem — a historic town nestled between gold-hued mountains and the blue Sea of Cortez. It's known mainly to whale watchers (late winter), sport fishermen (year-round) and snowbirds who drive down from British Columbia, Canada. Two years ago, Mexico's tourism agency gave Loreto its “Magic Town” moniker, a label to promote places notable for natural beauty, cultural riches or historical relevance.

    The little spring breakers can get wet, silly and messy at Chicago Children's Museum's new "Bubbles" extravaganza through the month of April. It’s four days of wango tango classes and milongas (social dances) at the Rosemont Hilton during the 2014 Chicago Mini Tango Festival April 10-14.

     
  • The sun peeks through the scaffolding around the Washington Monument at dawn in Washington. The National Park Service has announced they will reopen the earthquake-damaged structure May 12.

  • Visitors stroll along a path near the Bunker Hill Monument, in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston. The capital of Massachusetts is a vibrant modern city with a history that goes back centuries. Scattered throughout the downtown are buildings, churches and meetinghouses dating back to the American Revolution and earlier.

    5 free things to do in historic BostonMar 28, 2014 12:00 AM
    The city of Boston is known for its “wicked” rich history, to use a term the locals love, going back to the Boston Tea Party and roots of the American Revolution. But pride is not limited to the past: The city is also home to the World Series champion Red Sox team. Historic landmarks are scattered across the downtown from 17th-century churches and meetinghouses to some of the nation’s oldest schools. And taking in the sites won’t cost you a penny. Just remember that the cramped vintage streets are better tackled on foot than by car.

    Consider yourself warned: You’re going to need your GPS for this meal in Lowell, Mass. And a short history lesson. But it will be worth it. Start your visit at New Phnom Penh, an Asian grocer that can be a bit of a sensory overload. Then head to the Dessert Shop and Bakery, which seems to sell no desserts or baked goods, but sell Cambodian lunch items and addictive beef jerky made by the owner herself.
