Coming Soon to iPads Near You

Get your iPads ready, May 3rd is our official launch date for our third trial issue. Why the third, you ask? May 3rd just so happens to be our one year anniversary and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to release our best issue yet. Prepare for breezy tall ship journeys across Boston Harbor, yoga classes atop stand up paddle boards, eighteenth century tour guides in the heart of Boston, and locavore picnics at Charlie’s Boat House on the shores of Lake Champlain.

For this special issue, we deviated from our normal routine of investigating a single destination and covered both Boston and Burlington, VT. While our original focus was on Boston's parks, local eateries, self-powered activities, and world-renowned tours, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit Burlington, one of America's most sustainable communities. In Burlington, we visited Megan Epler Wood, a leading mover and shaker in the sustainable travel movement, and found ourselves enraptured in the town's unique focus on both progress and conservation. Producing this issue has been a long and challenging process and our fans have been so patient and understanding through it all. But the waiting is almost over! While the full issue will release on May 3rd, several stories, videos and photo essays will appear on our website within the next few days, so make yourselves comfy.

Here is a sneak peek into our third trial issue featuring BOSTON and BURLINGTON

Whether you are an experienced sailor or you have never stepped foot off a dock, Burlington's Community Sailing Center will set you up with the perfect sailboat and instruction. This favorite establishment has been so successful with its programs that local schools send students out to learn science, leadership, and sailing skills on a regular basis. Join us as we venture out on the water and learn about this exciting organization.

A vacation isn't complete without memorable food and both Burlington and Boston have tasty dishes in spades. However, Lake Champlain Chocolates in Burlington is particularly sweet. With fair trade chocolate, local ingredients, community chocolate bar making classes and international scholarship programs, this little factory has made a big impression. Come see what chocolate is capable of.

Freedom Trail tours are Boston's most popular tours and it isn't hard to see why. In one afternoon, you'll learn more about America's history in Boston than you ever thought. What was Paul Revere really like? Did Sam Adams actually drink beer? What was the penalty for kissing one's spouse in public on Sunday? Find out what this tour has to offer and the best way to get tickets.

For all things slippery, slimy and fun, head to the New England Aquarium on Boston Harbor. This world leader in marine conservation will astound and amaze. Join us as we watch our GoPro camera take a ride with a Giant Ocean Tank diver, go behind the scenes of the sea lion learning center, and wrap our heads around the incredible steps the aquarium has taken to preserve the Earth's oceans.

All of this and more will be free to download on the iPad on May 3rd.
