HOTEL MANAGEMENT CHAIN EARNS HIGH RATINGS
Even though they are in the hotel business, Nick and Vicky Massad hardly ever get to rest. Thirty years ago, Nick Massad Jr. graduated as one of the first alumnus from the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston. Today, he and his wife Vicky develop, own and manage hotels throughout Houston and the Southwest through their company, American Liberty Hospitality.

Twenty years ago, a little planned town called Seaside, 27 miles west of Panama City, distinguished itself from other Florida destinations by its carefully planned architecture and urban design. What was once 80 undeveloped coastal acres quickly became an architecturally conscious alternative to high-rise condominium living, full of charming wood-frame cottages, picket fences and a town square.
 
WORLDS APART: Cosmopolitan towns, wild animal reserves coexist on South Africa's Eastern Cape
Diaz Cross beach on South Africa's Eastern Cape is like an otherworldly mix of the sand dunes in "Star Wars" and an undiscovered Mediterranean shore. Feeling so far away while at a beach less than two hours from a bustling town is what makes visiting this part of South Africa so exhilarating.
 
LOVELY 'RITA, TEQUILA MADE: A Texas native’s search for Boston’s perfect margarita
As a Texan who lived in Boston for many years, my quest for the perfect margarita began as soon as I was old enough to get into the bars on Boylston Street. And if ever there was a day for margaritas, it’s Cinco de Mayo; the Mexican holiday is like a drinking carte blanche for tequila lovers worldwide.
