shore thing: america’s beach towns

THE ICON OF MY CHILDHOOD summers was a briny stretch of sand scant feet from our shingled rental cottage about a mile out from the beach town of Chatham, Massachusetts—which in my youth consisted of little more than a post office, a general store with a soda fountain and rack of comics, and a shop filled with lobster traps, maritime tchotchkes, and driftwood. It exuded rustic unpretentiousness. We answered Chatham’s beachy call for four weeks every summer, all tumbling into the family car—four kids and our parents—for the 12-hour ride to Cape Cod. The cadence of those summers was exquisite. Think swimming, sailing, burying ourselves in waterlogged sand, and scavenging for periwinkles, horseshoe crabs, and other marine creatures (though I failed to persuade my mother to keep a small, beached sand…

TARA ISABELLA BURTON WRITER, “A TOAST TO GEORGIA,” PAGE 74 HOME: I divide my time between New York and Oxford, England. In New York, everything is constantly changing. Mired in tradition, Oxford is the opposite. Calling both places home helps me strike a balance. GOING HYBRID: My mother is American, but she spent 20 years in France and Italy. My father is Italian. I grew up shuttling among New York, Paris, Rome, and other places. Growing up as a “third culture kid,” as those of us with similar circumstances are often called, helps me to adapt as a traveler. I’m drawn to places that meld cultures and aesthetics, or seem to exist between worlds. BONE UP: Among my more memorable Georgian experiences: taking a marshrutka (a beat-up minibus) with some friends to the remote…

I’ll definitely visit one or more on my next trip to Ireland.” Iva Foster of Burleson, Tex., was similarly enchanted…

england’s return to the stone age

STONEHENGE HAS LONG drawn pilgrims on sacred days. Now a new visitors center has transformed the tradition in time for the summer solstice on June 21. Thousands of revelers—including caped druids, antler-wearing poets, and raggedy mummers—descend on the ancient stones to greet the year’s longest day. It’s one of few occasions when people are allowed to stand inside the circle. In this ritual bridging the millennia, devotees can glimpse the sun rising behind the famed Heel Stone (a single slab in the prehistoric avenue beside the stones). This year, Stonehenge crowds will find restored dignity thanks to sweeping grassland and uninterrupted views of what Siegfried Sassoon called “the roofless past.” The northern road that sliced through the historic land is gone, as are the shabby welcome facilities. Located a discreet…

where diamonds are forever

NO NEED FOR AN UMPIRE’S CALL: Cooperstown, New York, runs on baseball. And as the Baseball Hall of Fame celebrates its 75th anniversary on June 12, baseball lovers can cheer more than one milestone. July also brings a new batch of inductees (including star players Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux, and Tom Glavine) following last year’s steroids-disqualified dry spell. But some things never change: The induction ceremony draws an endless stream of baseball fanatics from across the country, who hold their caps and grow misty-eyed when approaching their heroes. Living legends recount locker room pranks from their signing tables at baseball card shops and stroll together through manicured gardens to the 105-year-old Otesaga Resort Hotel. “Cooperstown is like visiting the old days,” says Yogi Berra, the patriarchal former Yankees catcher.
