The TART Trail* is a network of trails for wonderful walking, biking, rollerblading, etc. David Kirby, a local artist and high school physics teacher, led a project to install the planets in our solar system along a paved portion of the trail, to scale. The sun is located at the main library, while Pluto is near Bunker Hill Road, approximately six miles away. It really puts things in perspective when you walk that distance! Of course, a little ice cream never hurts.
*Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trail, or “TART” because Traverse City is a huge producer of cherries.
A walk from home, discovered during the first UK lockdown when we weren't allowed to drive anywhere for exercise. Good news: the ice cream parlour was open for refreshments. Bad news: the pub was not.
The Labor Day Bridge Walk is the most anticipated walk of the year, as you can only walk the Mackinac Bridge on that one day of the year (2020 excluded, of course). It’s not just a walk; it’s an event! Buses transport you across the bridge, then you walk back. After crossing, you get a numbered certificate, then go explore the town. Many businesses post a number in their window, and if it happens to match the number on your certificate, you win a prize! Scott and I walked it in 1994, but I took some liberties with the local destinations (some, like the Indian Museum and the Woolen Mill, were no longer operating by that date). I loved everything about Mackinaw City, particularly as a child when my sister and I were allowed to roam the streets unsupervised. I loved shopping for (and wore out many) moccasins, belts, and those fabulous “mystery bags”! Once, I even secretly purchased the jackknife I had been coveting...then sliced my finger, all of which went unnoticed. The whole town was a playground!
This map is dedicated to the main street of Agrigento: Via Atenea. I love this street because historical buildings, restaurants and shops lives together offering a very nice atmosphere.
I am Colombian, but my German husband has shown me how beautiful his country is. The Alps in the Allgäu are full of beautiful landscapes, animals and incredible routes. German cheese and beer production area. Walking there is a pleasure.
Monterey is a small coastal town with a perfectly preserved rich history, and a bustling tourist center abundant with diversity. There are gorgeous views, friendly people and tons of delicious food to try! Walking in Monterey is very enjoyable, as you can feel salty and misty breeze on your face and enjoy a comfortable weather almost at any time of the year.
Ruby Segal, an illustration student at MCAD grew up in Excelsior, Minnesota right next door to the beautiful Lake Minnetonka. Just one of Minnesota's 10,000+ lakes, Lake Minnetonka boasts wonderful lakeside attractions, acts as a home for many outdoor activities, and has a long and colorful history as Minnesota's premier vacation destination!
I moved to the seaside town of Eastbourne 6 years ago and it's a town where there's something for everyone of any age. For me, I fell in love with the independent cafes there and they each have their own unique theme and vibe.
During the second UK Lockdown, I am quarantining in Hove, a place I've got to know fairly well over the past few years. Locals refer to the town as "Hove, actually" because Brighton&Hove is the official name for the city (Brighton) and "Hove actually" differentiates itself as a town by the city of Brighton.
