The ruins of Rodney, Mississippi, tell the story of a thriving Southern town decimated by the Civil War and the changing course of a nearby river. The churches and houses are abandoned now, and we loved experiencing their quiet beauty.
The South might not be too touristed, but it’s full of sites all Americans should see. Our Southern road trip taught us so much about this country’s past and about human rights and social justice, both historically and today. Relive the journey with us, and get some tips for planning a trip of your own.
Skiing (and snowboarding) definitely isn’t a cheap hobby, but a ski trip doesn’t have to wipe out your savings. Skip the famed destination resorts, and head to one of Montana’s lesser-known ski areas instead. You’ll save a ton money but still get great ski conditions – plus a little more local charm.
It probably won’t surprise you that our hometown of Great Falls, Montana, doesn’t attract too many tourists. But with lots of new restaurants, tons of outdoors activities, and a handful of other things to do, the town has plenty to offer people who might be passing through.
Montana may not be known for having diverse global cuisine, but a visit to the state’s hippie capital of Missoula says otherwise. With options like Indian, Brazilian, and Argentinian, try one of these restaurants for some of the tastiest and most interesting food around.
Why spend Black Friday shopping when you could spend it exploring an old ghost town in Montana? Ryan’s photo essay depicts what we found in Elkhorn and tells some of its history, from silver mining to town dances to a tragic diphtheria outbreak.
Fortunately for an avid paddler like Ryan, New England has plenty of great options for kayaking. Here are three of his favorite spots, plus tips for planning your own trips.

Zambia not on your bucket list? Jen had the chance to spend a few months working there, and her photos of the country’s many attractions just might change your mind (especially if you’re a nature lover with a penchant for adventure).
We didn’t expect to find an abandoned luxury hotel during our hike in the Azores, or to be able to explore it freely. This photo essay on urban exploration tells the story of the hotel, the implications of its abandonment, and the lessons it can teach us.
