Dreaming or planning, the April 14 NH travel section has it all

Great mixture of dreaming and planning in today's travel section. Zip through the trees near Mansfield, discover a Florida beach town ideal for summer, add to your birding life list, or leave all your cares in a storied German spa town.

Michael Blair's video camera was mounted on his helmet as he ziplined, giving the viewer that scary pit in the stomach feeling that fades when pure wonder takes over. It's with the online version of his wife,  writer Tracey Read's fine story about the lodge at Mohican State Park and all the fun - including ziplining that can be found around there.

My story about Rosemary Beach takes you to a part of Florida that northeast Ohioans have been  less likely to visit, mainly because the Panhandle hasn't been easy to reach and winter there is like spring here.  But a new airport and budget friendly Southwest Airlines flights make this beach town a perfect fit as a summer destination for those wishing to mix relaxation with plenty of activities & fine dining. You stay in family and pet friendly cottages with kitchens and washer-dryers, tucking your car away in the garage,  if you have one,  so you can walk or bike wherever you want to go.

Outdoors writer Jeff Frischkorn's last trip before his retirement  was a birding foray to border town McAllen, Texas, in the midst of the spring migration. That's on the bend of the Rio Grande River about as far south as you can go in Texas. He added many birds to his life list and came back with a super story for our travel section.

And Tricia Ambrose visited Germany last December and came back with a couple of stories, the first of which is about Baden-Baden, a high-end spa town where the mineral waters ended stress for Roman legionnaires and continue to do so to this day.
