Anchors Aweigh: A visit to Bremerton’s naval attractions

As we entered Bremerton, the first thing that popped into my head was the song “Anchors Aweigh,” the Naval Academy’s march. If you’re a fan of American naval history, then the city along Washington’s Puget Sound is for you. My daughter Mallory and I spent an afternoon touring the Navy museum, as well as a […]

Otterly Divine: Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo

My second visit to Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo could have been titled “Otters. Otters. And More Otters.” Our daughters are addicted to otters. They even have matching otter tattoos, with outstretched arms toward the other. My visit with Mallory included spending extra time at the otter exhibit (to be fair, they are adorable animals and […]

Editor’s Note: Nebraska is celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017. As the state observes its sesquicentennial, we are revisiting some of the state’s attractions.

Take a hike – It’s National Walking Day

Happy National Walking Day! Where will your feet take you today? I am a bit of a geek when it comes to tracking my steps. Since 2007, I’ve tracked every step I’ve taken. I even have spreadsheets that I use to track the steps, miles, activity minutes and calories burned. Since March 1, 2007, when […]

Play ball! Check out these baseball attractions

It’s opening day for baseball fans. The crack of the bat. The smell of a glove’s leather. Baseball is back. Will the Chicago Cubs repeat as World Series champs? Will Cleveland end its baseball title drought? Doesn’t matter; everyone thinks their team is good enough to win it all…right now. As you grab a hot […]

Dante pizza – No inferno in Omaha; Just great taste

If you think only pizza at Dante Ristorante Pizzeria, then you’re selling yourself short. Up until our last visit, we apparently sold ourselves short. Our first few visits to the west Omaha restaurant consisted of Dante’s Neapolitan pizza. Dante has been selected as Omaha’s best pizza since opening its doors in 2014. As for the […]
