What Can I See and Do in Austin, Texas if I Only Have a Few Hours?

If you’re like me, you’ve heard the buzz about Austin, Texas for years. And maybe like me you haven’t had the chance to actually see Austin.  Don’t get me wrong.  I mean, I’ve been to Austin.

“Goodbye, Ball”

I have a confession.  I love golf. Not just playing it – which I’ve done for more than 35 years – but also watching it on television. Which is not to say I haven’t fallen asleep on occasion watching golf on TV. I mean really, how could you not, with the way the announcers often lower their voices (In case you didn’t know, they do this because they’re following the players on the course). I don’t fall asleep during the majors, though. Too many good players on the course.  Where did this devotion – to what many people have...

San Antonio Surprises – Traveling with Teens Over Spring Break

There’s something magical about spending a few days in a 300-year old city that isn’t (a) in Europe or (b) on the East Coast of the United States.  San Antonio – the seventh largest city in the U.S. and the second largest in Texas (after Houston) – turns 300 this year and is looking very good for its age. This year for Spring Break – rather than head to a beach where the weather still might be iffy in early April – we decided for something less traditional. None of us had been to San Antonio before (although it’s...
