5 Things Newport
January 18, 2017

My husband and I are currently excited about our new book, The 5-Things Travel Guide.  In case we don’t get around to writing it (a very real possibility) here is the concept:  for each location, we give you the top 5 things to do, according to us.  Here’s our list for Newport, Rhode Island.

  1. Cliff Walk – this is a beautiful and long walk.  Wear a bathing suit and pack a towel on a hot day so you can jump into the Atlantic Ocean.  Otherwise, just walk and enjoy the view on any day.  Gorgeous!
  2. The Old Stone Mill, Touro Park at night.  It looks so much prettier at night!
  3. The International Tennis Hall of Fame – even if you don’t like or appreciate tennis, this place is worth a stop.
  4. Sail an America’s Cup sailboat!  Such a great way to be in Newport.  The crews and captain are very friendly and it’s a blast!
  5. Any Mansion.  It’s Newport.  See a mansion.

The 5-Things Travel Guide
November 8, 2016

My husband and I are currently excited about our new book, The 5-Things Travel Guide.  In case we don’t get around to writing it (a very real possibility) here is the concept:  for each location, we give you the top 5 things to do, according to us.  For example, Denver.

  1. Izba Spa:  this place is crazy.  If you get their signature treatment, this is how it goes:  hot tub for 15 minutes, 30 minute massage, sauna, beat with branches and covered in honey.  Repeat. I love it.  Read the reviews on Yelp.  They are hilarious.  If you don’t like heat or deep pressure, it’s probably not for you.  I think it’s the best thing in Denver and wouldn’t miss it.
  2. Botanic Gardens: oh, how we love the gardens.  We are members!  Each season brings new beauty and it is a great place to take a long walk through gorgeous nature.
  3. Chef’s Counter at Acorn:  Kate and the rest do such a great job here and sitting at the chef’s counter is the perfect place to take in all the action.  A great restaurant.
  4. Red Rocks:  what can we say?  Even if there is not a concert happening, just walking around this venue is incredible and so close to Denver.
  5. Surrey Ride through Washington Park: warning – this is harder than it sounds.  We did it and loved it but were wishing we had four people pedaling.  Or, you can just walk around the park.
