Getaways            


Roman Holiday

Better than any other art form, film reveals the nature of the world’s great cities. Even if you’ve never visited New York, London, Paris or Tokyo,…MORE

Book It

On paper, Seattle isn’t unlike Baltimore—it’s a port city with a population just over 600,000 (if you omit the millions of people in the suburbs). And yet, there’s a vastness of scale we don’t have. The…MORE

Flash Dance

The minute I grasp the drumsticks—the percussion variety, not turkey—I am hooked. My inner rock star springs to life and I’m tapping everything in sight. I am not alone. Everyone is tapping right along with me…MORE

Postcards from the Edge

I’m driving north on the New Jersey Turnpike, it’s raining and I have approximately 2,000 vintage postcards of Asbury Park, N.J., in the trunk. If it sounds like I’m on a mission, I am. My father,…MORE

Music to Her Ears

Nashville makes me want to sing. Granted, my vocal skills are best heard in a car and with radio accompaniment. But in Music City, melody really is omnipresent, from the notes that tumble out of Tootsie’s…MORE

Scrapple and Shakespeare

I’d already told about 10 people in Baltimore that my husband and I were planning a visit to Staunton, Va., when a friend of mine who is from Virginia whispered in my ear, “You don’t say…MORE

It’s a Spa World, After All

I give $35 to the woman at the front desk and she hands me a shirt and shorts in convict orange and a key on a wristband with a number printed on it. “Don’t lose this…MORE

The Butler Did It

At 7:30 a.m., Stephen Sanford, my, ahem, butler, knocks on the door of my cottage, a silver tray bearing a pot of French press coffee and a paper bag of hot sugared beignets in his arms.…MORE

Miles of Tiles

At Zion Lutheran Church in downtown Baltimore, just across from City Hall, a quiet courtyard of boxwood, magnolia, crape myrtle and fig beckons office workers to stop in and take a break. It’s an enclosed green…MORE

Avenue Of The Arts

My favorite vantage point along Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway is an unorthodox one I discovered recently while trying, unsuccessfully, to cross from the Franklin Institute to the Free Library with only seconds remaining on the crosswalk…MORE

Revel Yell

It seems D.C. super chef Robert Wiedmaier and I agree on at least one thing: Neither of us are big fans of casinos. So why is the culinary mastermind behind such Washington institutions as Marcel’s and…MORE

Off the Wall

I’ve always known Philadelphia to be a city of art, if evidenced by nothing more than the famous “Rocky Steps” outside of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and its plentiful art schools. It’s also, I soon…MORE

STYLE Fifty

1. You may not be “to the manor born” but you can be “to the manor for a weekend” at the Clifton Inn or Keswick Hall, two charming country inns nestled into the Blue Ridge Mountains…MORE

Let there be lights

The line of SUVs, minivans and station wagons starts at Point Lookout Road in Great Mills and coils a distance of nearly two miles to Flat Iron Farm. Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s thumping swirl of “Wizards in Winter,”…MORE

Eats for the Ages

Did you know that Thomas Jefferson smuggled rice out of Italy in his coat pockets— a crime punishable by death at the time? Or that from the mid-1800s to the 1930s, the U.S. Department of Agriculture…MORE

I’ve got you, Babe

Forget Disney World. All my 5-year-old daughter wanted for spring break was to spend some quality time with a pig. Somehow, the child of two city people had become obsessed with farm animals, particularly the swine…MORE
