GALAPAGOS ECO ADVENTURE

Excursions and training courses are led by two certified naturalists; Daily activities include snorkeling, kayaking, beach walks, zodiac rides, and hiking tours that will bring you close to the most fascinating species of the destination. Two unique routes start every Sunday all year round.

SNAZZY HOTEL LAUNCHES IN STEEL CITY
History and contemporary design are perfectly intertwined at the Industrialist Hotel, Autograph Collection, the latest addition to the renaissance of historic downtown Pittsburgh. I have to love the backstory: the original 18-story building was built in 1902 for James Arrott, known as the “Bathtub King of Pittsburgh” for being the first in the area to make enameled iron bathtubs. Today, the carefully restored and modernized interiors (including original marble walls, ornate ceilings, and iconic arched windows) feature designs inspired by Pittsburgh’s resilient history as the steel capital. Located in the legendary Golden Triangle overlooking the Monongahela River, the hotel offers 124 rooms, a lobby bar, a communal lounge with a fireplace and communal seating, a fitness center and a modern American restaurant, The Rebel Room. Prices start at $ 229. 888-236-2427, www.theindustrialisthotel.com
