We'll be spending some time in Canaan NY, near the Massachusetts border, this summer. While we have plenty of outdoor sunny day options, rainy days can be tough with a 5- and 2-year-old.

We're looking for: - something exciting like whitewater rafting or hang gliding, but safe enough that we'll live. - somewhere to hang out and catch up over a long weekend. - cool summer weather. - great accommodations at a 3 1/2-star price.

One Week Tour

I'm planning to take a solo vacation the first week of August, and would like to go on an all-inclusive organized tour.

Relaxing getaway near Tucson?

I need a 1-3 night, relaxing getaway near Tucson, AZ. Anyone stayed in any quaint cabins or good value guest ranches/hotels/B&Bs no more than 5-6 hours from Tucson (or even somewhere within Tucson/surrounders)? I've considered everything from finding a discounted night at a fancy resort and spa to primitive camping on Forest Service land. Extra credit (but not required): pool/swimming hole/hot tub.

My girlfriend and I are going to Italy in three weeks. We both love Rome, but neither of us has been in a while. I am a "foodie" (sigh) and am fluent in Italian, if rusty.

City for a long weekend getaway?

My wife and I have some friends willing to watch our kids and 50,000 Delta skymiles each. We'd like to spend a long, car free weekend in a city that is new to us. We want to have a hotel room from which we can walk to nice restaurants and fun or interesting attractions (we like good museums and parks, for example). We've been to Boston, D.C., San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, and New York. Can you suggest somewhere new in the U.S. or Canada that would be fun to visit?
