Last week, I flew into Cuba on the first flight from Miami to Havana since the 1960s. This marks a new era of travel to the island nation, and I'm here to give you the information you need to go there yourself!
What does your home decor say about your personal style? Perhaps you've borrowed from your relatives so much that your only hope is to wait for "Florida Retirement Home Chic" to become a thing.

The big snowstorm hitting the East Coast this weekend is predictably wreaking havoc on travel plans for thousands of airline passengers across the country. Several airlines are waiving change fees to rebook passengers now instead of waiting for flights to be canceled.
I spent this past weekend at my family’s house outside of the city. It was an impromptu gathering, the night of the $900 million Powerball drawing, the largest in history. My mother set a lottery-themed table for dinner, complete with her Powerball tickets artfully displayed as a centerpiece.
