This month’s Travel Post starts out at a “Philadelphia mecca” that locals have been going to for over 100 years. It’s the Reading Terminal Market, where more than 80 merchants and specialty shops sell baked goods, fresh produce, meat, artisanal coffees, flowers, and a whole lot more.
Our next stop is a dude ranch in Bandera, Texas, where horseback riding is only part of the experience. The ranch also offers hiking, fossil digging, hayrides, swimming, and learning how to rope.
Potter Marsh is at the southern end of the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. Its 1,550-foot boardwalk is the perfect vantage point for birdwatching.
We wrap up this issue of the Travel Post with a visit to Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji. Our writer describes this adults-only resort as “an irresistible blend of luxury and barefoot Bohemia.”

- Taste Philly at the Reading Terminal Market! (6/5/2018) - You find yourself in Philadelphia, America’s first capital, home of Ben Franklin and revolutionary history. You’re hungry and want to eat like a Philly native eats! What if you could walk into one space in center city with the aromas of fresh java, baked goods, burgers, deli sandwiches, Asian food, fresh bread, BBQ, soul food, Indian cuisine -- and still have more to choose from?
- A “Spur” of the Moment Decision Led to an Experience of a Lifetime! (6/5/2018) - Boots thud across the wooden porch, past the traditional triangle chuck wagon dinner bell that they use to call everyone in for meals. And from the moment you cross the threshold… you are family.
- Boardwalk at Potter Marsh (6/5/2018) - The chance to see a moose wading in the marsh, a muskrat swimming by or poking his head from the water, or even the spawning of chinook, coho, or humpback salmon in Rabbit Creek: this is what you can see along the 1,550-foot wooden boardwalk that offers a panoramic view of Turnagain Arm.
- Tokoriki — The Sound of Silence (6/5/2018) - There is no TV, no phone, and intentionally no Wi-Fi except in the lounge and bar areas. So take the plunge with less screen time. Embrace the digital detox; it’s bliss.
