A Chilling Winter Weekend in Montreal

What better way to weather the wintry cold than to travel north for a long weekend of icy immersion in Montreal?

The logic seems skewed, but the warmth of the staff, décor, and outdoor Jacuzzi of Hotel Le Crystal convinced us that Montréal, Quebec, Canada was the perfect city for a mid-winter (or summer!) getaway.

The King of Tupelo, Mississippi

At a recent travel writers' dinner I overheard two guys who'd scaled Kilimanjaro, run Class VI rapids on the New River, and rested their heads on the most expensive pillows in Paris agree that, of all their travel journalism adventures, none was as much fun as the Tupelo Elvis Festival in Mississippi.

Take a state-owned and managed recreation area, tuck it into the heart of one of America’s largest parks, give it funds to become a first-class ski resort and you’ve just met Gore Mountain. Gore and Whiteface in Lake Placid, site of the 1960 Olympics, are managed by ORDA (Olympic Regional Development Authority), a New York State Authority charged with making a profit from these two very different mountain resorts.

Closer to Ottawa (1 hour drive) than Montreal (90 minutes distant), this historic resort, on the western slopes of the Laurentian mountain range (think Mt. Tremblant), Montebello offers visitors both wilderness and luxury -- a combination that fit the bill of our traveling family.
