A bit judgmental, perhaps, but we at The Independent tend to agree with the sentiment that traveling is a good thing. Therefore, we are in the process of expanding our travel coverage — in print and online at independent.com — to include more features, helpful information about popular destinations, and other travel tips we hope you’ll find useful.
To kick off our extended travel coverage of near and far getaways, we have stories about wintering in Vancouver by Michelle Drown; a weekend of music and good eats in Los Angeles by Matt Kettmann; and a Mardi Gras kick off in New Orleans by Barney Brantingham. So keep an eye on The Indy for information on cool, unique, and surprising places to go on your next trip.
Oh, and remember: When preparing to travel, lay out all your outfits and all your money. Then pack half the clothes and twice the cash. Bon voyage!
