There are no golf courses here. No row of high-rise hotels along the beach. No duty-free malls, no casinos, no Kentucky Fried Chicken. This is what there is: Two giant, jagged volcanic cones, providing as dramatic a sight as anywhere in the Caribbean. A clean, crescent-shaped, white-sand beach that steps down to a fabulous coral reef. A cluster of private, unobtrusive, octagonal-shape rooms perched along a palm-studded hillside. And a small, open-air restaurant, surrounded by tropical foliage, that serves Creole-style cooking.

BIALKA TATRZANSKA, Poland - Just a few years ago, winter was a dead season for the Kotelnica Mountain, quiet under a quilt of snow. Today, Kotelnica vibrates with activity from ski fans who flock to the new resort, one of Poland's trendiest. The transformation happened in just a decade and reflects the inventiveness and enterprise seen in Poland since a market economy arrived with democracy in 1990. People in this 17th-century village at the foot of the Tatra Mountains in southern Poland were making a modest living on farming and sheep breeding, with additional funds coming from relatives who had gone, in a long-standing tradition, to the United States for work.

A city on the Pacific Coast is reaching out to a Jersey Shore town with a similar name. Seaside, Ore., plans several fund-raising events to help finance a new town entrance for Seaside Heights, N.J., heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Don Larson, the mayor of Seaside, told New Jersey 101.5 that he saw a lot of similarities with the New Jersey borough. Both are coastal towns with tourism-driven economies, Larson said, and both are acutely aware of the damage natural disasters mean for them.

Around the turn of the century, Philadelphia's smart set caught the cool summer breezes in a tranquil setting. And it wasn't Atlantic City. A closer vacation spot - a train ride away - had many of the same amenities as the Jersey Shore: posh hotels, a boardwalk, golf links, riding stables, tennis courts, spiffy downtown shops. It was Media. What is today Delaware County's seat of government and jurisprudence, the Borough of Media, was a resort area almost from the day it was incorporated in 1850.

In a 1940s snapshot, Detroiter Sunnie Wilson and his friend, boxing champ Joe Louis, stand side by side, marveling at the splendor of Idlewild and the calmness of Idlewild Lake. Back then, this resort community four hours northwest of Detroit was known as the Black Eden, the Apollo of the North, the Black Las Vegas. It was the place where blacks enjoyed recreation and culture away from racial hatred. And each year thousands of blacks from Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, St. Louis and points beyond could hardly wait for Michigan's north to thaw so that they could escape to this all-black recreational haven.

If you've been waiting for another upscale championship resort course to play while vacationing at the Shore, it has arrived in Harbor Pines Country Club. Open only six weeks, Harbor Pines is the latest addition to daily-fee golf at the Shore, and, though not the second coming of Galloway National, it's a welcome addition. Weaving through mature pines and hardwoods, as well as around a nature preserve, Harbor Pines is a midlength course (6,478 yards from the blue tees) that challenges better golfers, yet it won't overwhelm mid- and even high-handicappers.

Around the turn of the century, John T. Dorrance, his pockets bulging with the money he had amassed from his invention of canned condensed soup, decided that it was time to spend summers on Mount Desert Island, Maine. His decision was not universally acclaimed. One summer resident who took a dim view was Mary Howard Sturgis, grandmother of Robert Montgomery Scott. "In effect," said Scott, president of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, "she said, 'There goes the neighborhood.

Buying a week of vacation time at a Florida resort can be a dream come true - or a nightmare. So how do you decide whether to take the plunge? One suggestion from people in the industry is: Don't look at a time-share as an investment. Choose an exciting resort in a desirable location because you want to spend your vacations there, not because you think you can sell the share for a profit. That means that the location should be practical. Are you willing to drive 18 hours to reach your Florida vacation spot?

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. - For the last few years, ski resorts in cowboy country - and the skiers who love them - have been riding a bucking bronc. Huge dumps of snow blanketed slopes in the up years; in down years, late snow and warmer days cast a pall over the industry. At Steamboat Resort, in western Colorado, hard-core skiers were over the moon in 2008 when monster storms dropped 433 inches of snow on the slopes. But disbelief followed when the next winter brought fewer, weaker storms and half as much snow.

Gov. Christie on Monday said the closing of multiple casinos in Atlantic City was "inevitable" given increased competition, but sought to blunt talk of the demise of this struggling resort town. Yet, big changes could come, including an expansion of gaming into North Jersey and greater state involvement in Atlantic City's government. Christie didn't share many details from the meeting, but when asked about those two ideas, which have been brought up by a key lawmaker, he responded: "Everything is on the table.

ATLANTIC CITY - With the noisy construction site of the Bass Pro Shops outlet at The Walk as a backdrop, Mayor Don Guardian on Friday tried to put a positive spin on the announcement that Caesars Entertainment will close the Showboat Casino in August and put thousands more casino workers out of a job in the already beleaguered gambling resort. "Atlantic City's best days are still ahead of us," Guardian told a gathering of media in a dirt lot next to the site where the sporting-goods center is due to open next year.

Just so you know, this story is not for the squeamish. It's about the therapeutic power of poop, a concept that is, we admit, both repulsive and fascinating. Specifically, it's about using one person's "donation" to cure another's Clostridium difficile , a potentially fatal bacterial infection that is growing more common and virulent. The beneficial bacteria from a healthy person's gut can subdue the bad germs growing like crazy in a sick one's digestive system, even if many rounds of expensive antibiotics have failed.

ATLANTIC CITY With more time to prepare this year, organizers of the Miss America Pageant say they hope to sell more tickets, generate even better television ratings, and garner more attention for the seaside resort than in last year's triumphant return. The nationally televised Miss America 2015 competition, dubbed by pageant officials as "the world's most famous scholarship competition for young women," will air at 9 p.m. Sept. 14 on ABC. The Miss America Organization's chairman and chief executive officer, Sam Haskell 3d; Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri; and the newly elected mayor of Atlantic City, Don Guardian, were among those at a news conference Friday at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Hotel to announce details of this year's pageant.

Early in the morning, as the sun climbs above the horizon, Rosemary Daley marvels at the massive freighters gliding on the Delaware past her balcony. Only when she turns just so and can see Philadelphia's skyscrapers is she reminded that she resides in a cosmopolitan city. After years of living in sprawling houses, Rosemary and husband Stan say their 1,050-square-foot condo at Pier 3 was the perfect strategy for a pair of retired empty nesters. "It's very much like resort living in a culturally rich city," says Rosemary, 66. Trips to the Caribbean and Key West influenced their decision to buy at the waterfront sanctuary.

My best gal pal Olivia and I had just arrived at our Vermont spa destination late one spring evening after a nine-hour drive from central Pennsylvania. I set up my laptop to check my e-mail and Olivia jumped on the queen-size bed and sprawled out on the starched white duvet cover. It was hard to believe that just three months earlier this delightful little Jack Russell terrier mix, whom I had adopted, had been sitting on death row in a Tennessee animal shelter. But here we were in the lap of luxury at the Essex Resort & Spa, ready to start our parent/puppy renewal weekend.

CONGRATULATIONS, Joseph Cionzynski, you've won a free trip back to sunny Florida. This time, however, there won't be any trips to Disney World, or the beach, or anywhere that's any fun at all. According to the Orange County, Fla., Sheriff's Office, Cionzynski, 59, of Lansdale, Montgomery County, is accused of taking photos of an 8-year-old boy inside a bathroom in Disney's Animal Kingdom earlier this month. Cionzynski, who told authorities in Florida that he was a "Scout leader" employed at the National Labor Relations Board, was arrested Aug. 14 in Montgomery County on charges of video voyeurism.

CHERRY GROVE, N.Y. - Decades before the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, lesbians and gay men were living freely and openly in a place called Cherry Grove. The seaside resort on Fire Island, about 60 miles east of Manhattan, was known as far back as the late 1940s as a sanctuary where gay writers, actors and businesspeople from the city and beyond escaped to relax, hold hands and show affection. "It's probably one of the earliest examples of don't ask, don't tell," Carl Luss said after learning in June that the Cherry Grove Community House and Theater, opened in 1948, added to the National Register of Historic Places.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton had planned to relax this week at the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Instead, he is caddying for friend Ryan Palmer in the PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic. After two days of practice rounds and pro-am events, Payton said he realized "this isn't a vacation. " Tommy Gainey and Johnson Wagner each shot 8-under-par 62 Thursday to share a 2-stroke lead after the first round on the Old White TPC course. Palmer, who gave his regular caddie the week off, opened with a 68. Anders Hansen of Denmark shot a 5-under 66 to lead by a stroke after the first round of the French Open in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, on the Albatross course of Le Golf National.
