Orlando Attractions For Theme Park Haters

Getting beyond it's role as the theme park capital of the United States, Orlando also has a fascinating variety of natural, cultural, historical, and downright unusual activities--so many, in fact, that it would take you an estimated 67 days to see everything.

24 Hours In Dubai

Dubai is flush with contemporary superlatives because it was built to be just that; a city state with one of the world’s largest airports, its tallest building, the world’s third largest shipping port, the most opulent luxury hotel. All are part of a master plan among seven, oil-rich United Arab Emirates to co-exist in blinding prosperity. Dubai boasts so many shop windows and LEDs, crystal chandeliers and gold fixtures, that there’s plenty of eye candy to occupy families with a day (or a week) to visit.
