In surfing culture, there’s this thing about keeping mum when you find an amazing and uncrowded break—a place that lifts your spirits, clears your mind, works your body, and insists you return for more. Locals, understandably, want their piece of undiscovered paradise unspoiled by the masses. And when an outsider stumbles upon the hidden treasure, they too can’t help but think, “I’m keeping this to myself.”
Ask a Southwest Airlines representative about the cost and size restrictions to check your bike on board and their first response likely will be, "I don't really know."

As early adopters of the Tesla sales pitch, we continue to be happy owners of its electric cars--a Model 3 (2017) and Model S (2013). We only wish we would have held its stock after purchasing at $50/share (pre-split) in 2013. Hindsight is 20/20.
We started planning our family New York trip only thinking about Manhattan. Neither kid had yet traveled to the U.S.
Depending on the destination, vacationing with your kids can be a wonderful memory-making experience or a complete disaster. Any parent who says otherwise bends the truth like magician David Blaine bends the mind.
While certain experiences guarantee kid fun —Disney parks, Hawaii beaches, mountain snow-skiing---the cultural enrichment payoff is minimal. If your 11-year old son believes that Epcot is a Chinese city, it might be a sign to get him a passport and go someplace far…very far.
Most Sin City travelers have little interest roaming off the Strip, and who can blame them? Massive hotels, scream-worthy amusement rides, titillating shows/nightclubs and wallet-busting shopping make Las Vegas Blvd a one-of-a-kind experience.
