It’s been almost a year since I missed a step in my house, flew into a bookcase and flipped over on my back, hitting the hard tile floor and fracturing a bone in my spine. Full story below:

Illustrations by Michellina Jones Before all this happened, I remember rushing around in the early morning hours, as I often do, yelling at my cats, Clyde and Sammy, who were fighting at the time and apparently distracted me. The next thing I knew, I was on the floor in enormous pain, calling for my...

Dozens of hotels could be on this list; here we take a look at a few that stand out from the crowd:

12/14/2023

When it comes to travel, sometimes it’s the journey, not the destination. But in the case of getting to Clearwater Beach—as you battle traffic along the I-4 corridor—it is most definitely the destination. Living in Orlando puts you within a 2- to 2½-hour drive of one of the best beaches in the country. And once you put the journey in your rearview mirror, you can focus on the bliss of Clearwater Beach, recently named the No. 1 Beach in the South by USA Today.

Stretching for 2.5 miles, Clearwater Beach sits on a barrier island, luring travelers from around the world in search of its sugar-white sand, emerald-clear waters, family-friendly activities and natural beauty. Often lumped in with beautiful St. Pete Beach, just 19 miles south, Clearwater holds its own as a top draw for both locals and visitors alike.

To be in the heart of it all, stay at Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach, which opened in 2017.
