  2. If you're visiting Cuba, here's an easy day trip


    VIÑALES, Cuba

    The lush Viñales Valley in western Cuba exudes natural beauty with its steep-sided limestone mountains, caves and rich, reddish soil where tobacco for Cuba's famous cigars is grown.

  3. A mother and teenage daughter head to Atlanta



    A quick mother-daughter road trip filled me with an excitement I haven't felt since Sofia was in kindergarten, when I was the mastermind of her adventures.
