The Enchanting Fairmont

The weather may be blissfully warm during the Christmas holidays in Scottsdale but the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess transforms into a winter wonderland each year with an extraordinary "Christmas at the Princess" festiva. This marvelous five-star desert hotel glistens for six weeks during the season with over two million lagoon lights, magical snowfalls and a holiday carousel. Be sure to don your ice skates for a circle around the holiday ice rink and take your children on a delightful ride on the Princess Express Train. Enjoy a swim or a game of golf in the sun while experiencing the enchanting and magical splendors of the season, all available at the incredible Fairmont Scottsdale Princess.

Pick of the Week

My husband recently sprinted down the beach to prevent our runaway umbrella from impaling an innocent sun worshipper. We are packing the beachBUB on our next trip to avert such potential tragedy. Unfold the vinyl sheet, shovel a bunch of onto it, pull up and attach to your umbrella and you have an anchor that can keep that umbrella safely in the sand. Comes in three sizes and four colors and fits umbrellas up to 1.5" in diameter. Original is $24.95; with umbrella $89.95.

Changes at Charleston Place

Now known as Belmond Charleston Place, this favorite South Carolina property is finishing up a $30 million renovation that includes a makeover for the two-story Club Lounge on the 8th floor, doubling the size of the fitness center, turning a retail space to a pub and most exciting of all, adding an exclusive rooftop bar that overlooks King St. The hotel is on Meeting Street, a perfect location for exploring one of my favorite cities.
