A Traveling Dad, Two Teenagers, Tough Talks about Suicide, and Dear Evan Hansen

Why would you spend several hundred dollars and eat up your airline miles and hotel points to fly your two teenagers to New York City to see a show about teen suicide? Believe me, I asked myself that question several times in the weeks leading up to our family weekender in New York a couple of weeks ago. But if the show is the Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen, and the suicide rate in your country is inexplicably skyrocketing, and in the very week of your trip both Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain take their own lives, and...

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. But only once and only for business – just long enough to enjoy the cool airport (complete with live music), and drive around after my meetings. Knowing what I know now, randomly driving around was a wasted opportunity. So, what should you see, do, and eat if you only have a few hours to spare? On a recent trip to Texas with my...

Detroit with Dad – Brothers Bond Over Brats and Baseball

I’m a middle child – four years separate me on both sides from my nearest siblings. Plus, for nearly all my adult life, I’ve lived far away from the rest of my family, and to be honest, I don’t have a lot in common with the people who grew up in the same house I did. So, when my older brother suggested that the four boys and our dad get together in Detroit for a few days of “guy time,” I wasn’t sure what to expect. But – the one thing we all DO have in common is being...

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...

The Top Five Things to Know about Visiting Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum

I travel a lot for work and I like it.  I like going to new places, seeing new things, eating new foods, and best of all – getting to know new people.

Here are the top five things you should know as a first-timer about your visit to the Warhol Museum: No. 1 First, it’s accessible...

What Is the Golden Spike National Historic Site, and So What?

Just another lawn-mowing day in the life of a Northern Utah teenager. One hot summer afternoon as a kid, I was mowing the front yard when a car pulled over in front of my house.  The passenger rolled his window down and motioned me over.  I stopped the mower and went to the car, which contained two elderly couples. The man driving the car said “hello” and I could tell from his accent he wasn’t a Utah native. In my teenage “you’re interrupting my lawn mowing but how can I help you” voice, I said “hi” back. He asked,...
