10 Bars Where Former U.S. Presidents Have Hung Out. – Whenever I travel, I love learning about quirky or historic locations like these. How cool would it be to have a drink where a former U.S. President once hung out? In Boston, we had a few drinks at the Green Dragon Tavern, which is where the Boston Tea Party was planned and Paul Revere started his ride.

American cuts summer flights because of delayed Boeing jets. – Be prepared for potential changes to your itineraries this summer. With fewer jets delivered, American is going to have to juggle their schedules to get everyone where they need to go. While we’d love it if they changed the schedule to non-stop flights, changes usually mean weird routings and longer flight times. Keep in mind that most airlines allow you to change your itinerary for free if the flight change departs or arrives more than an hour from the original flight times.

However, I’ve now booked my first Airbnb for this spring, so I may start to change my opinion based on how it goes. Read Brett’s tips for the 11 pros and cons of using an Airbnb that you need to know.
