Baby's First Vacation At Madison Beach Hotel, Connecticut

The town of Madison, Connecticut, midway between the New York City and Boston shorelines, is blessed with pastoral seascapes and some of the cleanest and least utilized beaches on the Long Island Sound. There is a seasonal resort flavor here but, in truth, it is a destination with year-round getaway potential.

Making Lemonade on an Emergency Airport Layover

I got a pound of lemons: an air traffic delay in Fort Lauderdale, a flight cancellation, being rerouted to Chicago O’Hare, an accident at LaGuardia, emergency airport closures, and a snow alert that forced me to spend 26 hours at an airport hotel.

If not for that, I might never have “made lemonade” in Rosemont, Illinois. Seemingly a suburb of the world’s busiest airport (measured by flight operations), Rosemont is home to the DES Convention Center and an aggregate of family activities, despite there being “no there there.”
