La Concha, San Sebastián
It’s the Chrysler Building of beaches: instantly recognisable but nevertheless thrilling and heart-lifting. La Concha is the most beautiful urban beach in Spain: a scallop of cream sand and sparkling sapphire waters with forested headlands, an island – Santa Clara – and a peppering of boats. The belle-époque seafront dates back to days of long summer residencies, when children ate separately and hotels were plushly carpeted; but today’s city is vibrant and cool. La Concha is flanked by two smaller beaches: Ondarreta is almost a continuation to the west (ending in Eduardo Chillada’s Wind Comb sculpture); Zurriola, beyond the Kursaal Palace in Gros, is popular with surfers.
Stay La Pensión del Mar (doubles from €45 room-only) also in Gros, is friendly and affordable. For a few euros more, Sansebay (doubles from €70 room only) offers contemporary chic and La Concha views.

After one Las Vegas trip, you’ve likely covered all of the big attractions — the Bellagio fountains, the High Roller, the Eiffel Tower. But there’s much more to Vegas than those Strip landmarks. In this ever-changing city, there’s always a crop of bars and restaurant popping up and new places to explore.

Moraca gave us some quick tips on where to go off-Strip for an under-the-radar activity and how to get the best view in Sin City.
What is the best way to spend one day in Vegas?
If you’re in a family, you’ve no doubt experienced the feelings brought on by the phrase “summer vacation,” and those feelings are cruel panic and hideous terror. Breaks are restorative and sunshine is fine or whatever, but the term is generally a hilarious oxymoron when used in describing something that involves 14-hour Caravan rides, forced interactions with anthropomorphic mice, paying $24.95 for a horse feedbag-sized serving of chicken fingers and attempting to apply sunscreen to the shrieking face of a 6-year-old. Yet because we at The Loop are optimistic sorts who strive to find the good in anything, even naked Greg Norman, we like to focus on the positive. As such, we’d like to submit these few ways that you can make your family vacation seem dangerously like an actual vacation.
First, Splurge on the Extra Room for the Kids: Actually, we take that back. “Splurge” isn’t the correct term for a decision that will encourage sleep, create important space and facilitate the ability to wake each morning actually rested. Yes, it costs extra. Yes, accommodations are already expensive! Yes, it’s worth it to avoid returning from a busy day of swimming, roller-coastering or jellyfish throwing to two queen beds jammed into 73 square feet of hotel real estate. Or, if you can…
Can we talk about the most dangerous place to vacation? It’s not necessarily some far-off banana republic immersed in a civil war. It can be right here, in your own backyard.
I should know. Since watching the Summer Olympics, my three little daredevils (ages 11, 13 and 16) have begged to visit Brazil. They managed to persuade me to go to Kenya last year, but we canceled our trip to Turkey because things were getting blown up at the airport. In the meantime, my kids insisted I drive to Laramie, Wyo.
Why? Tornados, that’s why!
We’d heard about a series of EF3 twisters packing 150 mph winds that touched down near Laramie. And since we were living in Fort Collins, Colo., only a one-hour drive, they had to go…..
What happens when they run out of rental cars? Hyapatia Lee found out when she arrived at a National Car Rental counter in Detroit with her two young sons, and a representative told her they’d run out of sedans.
Their only option: Downgrade to a subcompact, “which my children and I could not fit in – much less our luggage,” she recalls.
Car rental companies run out of vehicles almost every day. About 1 percent of car rentals aren’t honored because a car isn’t available. Part of the reason is that they accept more reservations than they can handle, anticipating some drivers won’t show up. Another part of the reason is that the car rental industry, unlike many hotels and almost all airlines, still allows you to cancel or miss a reservation without paying a penalty.
But there’s a way to get the car you wanted – or better. Knowing a few industry standard rules and an expert tip or two will ensure you’re never car-less when you travel…..Click Here To Keep Reading
