Founded in the late 19th century as a popular tourist destination, Atlantic City was one of the first places to take advantage of the railroad, thus making this vacation spot accessible to the middle class as well as the upper. This east coast resort city became so popular that in 1921, the first annual Miss America Pageant was held and became a staple of the area until 2005. The pageant was held in Broadway Hall which can still be visited today both for its current attractions and for a little piece of history.
Broadway Hall, formerly Convention Hall, has hosted countless entertainers and sporting events since it was built in 1929. In terms of historical significance, it held the nation’s first indoor college football game in 1930, was used as a training facility by the Army Air Forces during World War II, and was home to the country’s first indoor helicopter flight in 1970.

Nong Thale is a sub-district of Krabi’s Muang District and home to two scenic beaches- Tubkaak Beach and Khlong Muang Beach – and a number of luxury hotels.

Coming from a picnicking, backpacker travel heritage, it’s taken me decades to recognize the value of a fine meal. Now I can enthusiastically embrace a long, drawnout “splurge meal” as a wonderful investment in time and money.
Nowhere is this more true than in France. French cuisine is sightseeing for your tastebuds. You’re not just paying for the food it’s a threehour joyride for the senses as rich as visiting an art gallery and as stimulating as a good massage.
Some North Americans are intimidated when they go to a fine French restaurant, but they needn’t be.
OK, for those who travel a lot, you probably have the packing game down to a science. A routine. You know what to take, how much to take and how to pack it.
Maybe you can skip this article.
But, if images of jumping on your suitcase as your partner quickly snaps the locks shut, or sitting on the thing while you’re doubled over tying the straps is your version of packing, then this primer on how and what to pack may be helpful.
Remember the adage: “Pack half of what you think you need and bring twice the money.”
And the one, absolute rule that has gotten me in trouble, but I still adhere to: If you pack it, you carry it! Unles
