Fun in Flagstaff, non-Canyon

Vegas, baby

My recently adult kid has informed me she wants to go to Las Vegas. Why not? Feeling vaxed and ready for new experiences. We're a queer, quirky, nerdy family with no interest in gambling and a high capacity for kitch. What should we do in Vegas over, say, a 4 day weekend? [more inside]

Downtown Portland place for coffee and work tomorrow?

My son and I are taking Amtrak to Portland and back tomorrow for an appointment he has at Doernbecher. I’d planned to take the day off, but will need to now work a good chunk of the day. Where could we both do some work and school on laptops from, say, 8:30-1030 and then 12:30-2? Easy Lyft from the station or the hospital (or walking distance to either). Hospital have any space appropriate for this (eg in a cafe)? Thanks!

Weekend in San Francisco, pandemic style?

I’m going to be in San Francisco for a weekend with my sister and her wife. I’ve been to SF many times, but not during the pandemic so my usual food-oriented travel ideas are a bit out of step (several options I’ve looked up are still takeout only). What would you do that’s actually open right now, including outdoor activities? [more inside]

Inclusive travel destinations in Smoky Mountains or thereabouts

HI there. I'm tasked with researching on possible retreat destinations for a group of professional women that includes a mix of identities, cultures and religions. A third of the members are Black, some are Jewish, some are queer. The Smoky Mountains came up as a possibility because it's the geographic epicenter of our group. We want to ensure a safe, relaxing time for everyone and avoid unwelcoming, biased or racist encounters with staff, other travelers, etc. Can you recommend any places? [more inside]

PACKING LIST: What do you wish you'd brought with you to Alaska?

So I'm doing a train, flying, hiking, boating trip in Alaska on May 28th. 12 days. I think I'm packing everything I need - base layers, new hiking boots, a patagonia rain jacket, merino wool socks, a solar power pack - and a lot more. I've probably dropped 900 bucks. I think I'm good but also...I don't know what I don't know. What do you wish you'd brought with you on a trip like this?

Help me understand the logic of the roads in the desert southwest

I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the southwest a few times and I’ve always been struck by how there’s been miles and miles of lonely but relatively well-maintained tarmac. The roads are not in horrible shape, it looks like there’s been an effort to patch them in places, but the traffic along them is so sparse that it’s been ok to bicycle for hours on them in some areas. Why do they exist? I’m lost on how any of these roads make any economic sense. [more inside]
