Spring Break Travel Trends From a Travel Junkie

We love to travel. From the planning to the surprise discoveries and that sense of abandon you get when you emerge from your Uber and walk into a congested airport. Watching the comings and goings of sunburned and cornrowed college kids traveling from a beach vacay, or puffer-bundled families en route to some fabulous ski resort. It's all about discovery and adventure. We're constantly researching the hottest new travel trends: Where to go and what to do. We love to hit the major tourist attractions and we adore the off-the-beaten-path local haunts. Hotels are practically in the Lapidus blood--my grandfather, Morris Lapidus, designed some of Miami Beach's most iconic ones, including

WELCOME TO THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING

TOMORROW marks the official first day of spring and that means festival season in Atlanta. Depending on what you're looking for, from food to art and music, there's something for just about every taste.

You may know that the twice yearly time swap was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin. George Hudson, an entomologist from New Zealand (where my husband is for the next three weeks!), also proposed it in 1895, to give him more after-work hours for his bug hunting. Seven years later, the Brit William Willett

Celebrating Women

The other night we hosted a media meet-up at the new AC Hotel Atlanta Midtown to introduce some of our favorite PR peeps to a new reporter at GPB. Virginia Prescott moved here from New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR). She had done an amazing interview with our client, Michael Coles and, as much as we wanted to keep her all to ourselves, we knew the right thing to do was to share. Virginia was a delight, meeting friends and - like any great reporter - asking tons of questions.
