Perched on the banks of Lake Champlain, Basin Harbor Club’s Adirondack-style resort is great for guests looking for fun in the sun this holiday. Take advantage of the water sports and boating available in the harbor, play a round of golf on the resort’s 18-hole course, or choose to relax with a great book in a comfortable rocking chair. But don’t be surprised if you run into some wildlife during your stay—the property is designated as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary (from $171.33/night for a 3-night stay). basinharbor.com

Who says there’s not life after travel? Jim Sherman, founder and former CEO of ShermansTravel, is into a new business—a gift box of the month club called Hamptons Lane.
But Sherman (who’s still Chairman of ShermansTravel) hasn’t strayed too far—his new venture keeps alive the globetrotting spirit. Each month, his new company delivers a new box of authentic foods and kitchen products, centered on a theme and sourced from all over the globe.
The inaugural package—just in time for Cinco de Mayo—is Southwestern-themed and includes spices from James Beard-nominated Melissa Guerra; salsa from San Antonio, TX; a lime juicer; and chipotle-spiced margarita salt. Anchoring the box (literally) is a huge lava rock molcajete from Guanajuato, Mexico.
