The Providence Ice Rink at the BankNewport CityCenter (@banknewportcc) in Rhode Island is a great place for public ice skating, and now it's an ice bumper car venue as well. That's right, bumper cars, the county fair favorite, are now on ice in the Ocean State!

At first glance, a Harris’s Hawk looks heavy. With a body length of about 18 to 22 inches and a wingspan between 3 ½ and 4 feet, this is a large creature. But I found out, in a very hands-on way, that the raptor is actually quite light, weighing only about 1 ½ to 2 ½ pounds.

I discovered this fact when the hawk landed on my wrist as a part of The Falconry Experience at The Hotel Hershey in @thesweetestplaceonearth.

The sight of dozens of cars going in circles at 200 miles per hour just inches apart from each other, the sound of the engines roaring, the smell of rubber, the feel of the wind passing by your face as the cars whiz by you … this is all part of an experience you will not forget at a National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing event (also known as @nascar).

The American Visionary Art Museum (@the_avam) in Baltimore, Maryland is an art museum with a unique twist. AVAM specifically highlights self-taught and intuitive artistry across all mediums! That doesn't mean that the art inside is low quality, on the contrary, the pieces are all the more breathtaking when you consider that most of the artists had little or no formal training!

New York City looms large on the international arts scene, but visitors to the area don’t need to remain in the city to find thriving arts scenes. Serious art-lovers looking for visual and performing arts outside of the Big Apple will want to ensure these two Connecticut art powerhouses are on the itinerary.

Nicknamed “The Family Beach” for good reason, Surfside Beach is very community oriented and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Myrtle Beach. Through the years it has remained a quiet, family-friendly, laid-back, wholesome beach town.

How many miles do you think Santa traveled on the East Coast?
Outsiders may see Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as an eternal place of mourning, filled with museums and an endless sea of fallen soldiers’ graves. Though you will still find some kitschy souvenir shops, historical names donning many a business and ghost tours aplenty, but today’s Gettysburg is less relic and more inspired.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (@gardnermuseum) in Boston, Massachusetts is a break from the traditional museum experience. The exhibits are housed in a multi-story mansion modeled after a 15th-century Venetian palace, right in the heart of the city! The art itself is a rich collection spanning numerous mediums, continents, and styles. Opened to the public in 1903, the museum now serves as Isabella Gardner's legacy by giving visitors to her home a chance to enjoy the art she loved!
