Five ways to play on Coronado Island

Surf surges against this pristine shore, the white sand dotted picturesquely with red-striped cabanas. A paved footpath leads up to the iconic grand hotel. And it doesn't take much imagination to see Marilyn Monroe on this beach, sun-kissed and windswept in her short white beach robe.

Looking for new attractions in San Francisco? Here are some ideas for travelers

Miniature golf and alcohol, together at last. New lights on the Ferry Building. Fire pits and picnickers on the Presidio's parade lawn. Screaming scarlet walls on Nob Hill. A clamorous neo-Hawaiian feast on Sutter Street and a muted neo-Mexican repast in the Mission District. These things are happening in San Francisco.

Enjoy a camping adventure in eastern South Carolina

With gardens full of new flowers, it might be a good time for even more outdoor adventure: a camping trip or three.

N.C., Jacksonville zoos worthy spring break destinations

Anyone planning family spring break road trips has two humongous zoos — one north and one south — that merit a stop for at least a half-day on their way to a destination. Heading to Walt Disney World or other points in Orlando, Fla.? Swing by the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, right off Interstate 95 and full of large big-cat displays, especally tigers, up close, through glass. Heading north into or through central North Carolina? The N.C. Zoological Park, near Asheboro, south of Greensboro and off I-73/74, is an expanse that will take your breath away for a whole day.
