Travel On the Offbeat Path

The Lightner Museum was built as a hotel in the late 1800s, St. Augustine's Gilded Age.

I’m stepping out of the Great Lakes region to tell you about an exciting new project of mine, a syndicated travel feature I call On the Offbeat Path.

My stories and photos are now available on a weekly or monthly basis to print and online publications. The first to run with it is, a web news source that covers the corner of the Detroit metro area where we live.

Tour the fortress Castillo de San Marcos, which dates to 1672

Go to and read about St. Augustine, Florida, the first European settlement in the country.

It’s a beautiful, walkable city with a mix of architecture, historic sights, some kitschy tourist attractions, delish seafood and the Atlantic coast. This is where Ponce de Leon found the Fountain of Youth. Oh, and there’s great golf nearby.

Tell your friends about it and check back weekly for the next adventure.

And if you think your local publication should carry On the Offbeat Path please tell me about it—email the name of the publication(s) using the form below—and I’ll follow up.
