The way we see it, there are two kinds of vacations: the kind where you’re running around sightseeing and scouring the internet for tips on where to go and what to eat, and the kind where you don’t have to make any plans because everything is taken care of. If you're in the market for the latter, an all-inclusive getaway can be a great option. Especially if you want to go into it knowing exactly how much the whole trip will cost. Of course, places like Mexico and Jamaica offer excellent...

Could it possibly be the 'new London'? London is an obvious destination for tourists to flock to when they visit the UK. It's got...

1. Learning to Love a Malaka Although the word Malaka isn't "nice" sometimes it's meant to be friendly. Malaka means "jerkoff" but in Greece we use it as a term of endearment. People might say, "Hey jerkoff," but don't worry. You'll be able to tell if they mean it by their tone of voice. Use your better judgment and go with the flow. 2. Most everything closes at noon for a few hours. No soup for you. In Spain its called "siesta" and they have it in Greece too. In some of the more...

What would you say if you learned the oldest federal monuments are actually little sandstone markers standing 2 feet tall and a foot square that resemble George Washington’s false choppers? And that they’re tucked...
