Kids Fly, Stay, Eat Free at Atlantis

atlantis resort bahamas

Am I the only one who hears Donovan and remembers that scene in Goodfellas everytime I see Atlantis mentioned?

Okay, ridiculous confession aside, there’s good news for families looking for getaway ideas. (And really good news: this one doesn't involve Joe Pesci.) JetBlue is briefly offering a big deal: book at minimum 3-night vacation to Atlantis in the Bahamas, and your kids fly free, stay free, and eat free. Book before midnight Sunday (January 20) for travel before March 7.

There are some restrictions, natch: one kid per paying adult; blackout dates from February 13-26; maximum 2 adults and 2 kids per room; etc. But you KNOW how much it costs to fly the whole family anywhere—the airfare alone represents a big savings.

Hail, Atlantis! And JetBlue.

For more information or to book, please visit JetBlue Getaways.

Trip Doctor: Hotel Tonight Launches in Mexico and Europe

Hotel Tonight app

Listen up, last-minute travelers: our favorite last-minute booking tool has gone international. As of last week, you can use Hotel Tonight (free on iPhone and Android) to make same-day room reservations in cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, and Acapulco, in addition to the app's growing list of domestic destinations. Better yet, Hotel Tonight has simultaneously added a Gift Credits program—a digital gift card of sorts that you can share with friends—perfect for those perpetually delayed travelers who constantly find themselves on cancelled flights (we know a few of these folks, ourselves).

Among today's deals, we're excited about Edinburgh's sleek Dakota Hotel ($108 tonight) and the posh Boscolo Exedra in Nice ($155 tonight), both bargains that are tough to pass up. Of course, last-minute international airfares can put a wrench in your spontaneous plans, so don't jump the gun before getting a full picture.

For more of our favorite apps and websites, check out T+L's recent roundup of the web's best.

Eat Like a Local: Handmade Noodles in Philadelphia

noodles.jpeg

Prefer off-the-radar eateries to flashy, five-star affairs? That’s why Travel + Leisure and CNN teamed up for our series 100 Places to Eat Like a Local. For the next few months, we are combining iReports from you with chef and editor finds to give you tips on the best local food around.

Ever wonder where to get amazing Chinese food in Philadelphia? Chinatown might be a good guess, but how do you choose from the countless noodle houses lining the streets? Thankfully, we discovered Nan Zhou Noodle House (brought to our attention by cathybranch). Nan Zhou’s noodles are hand drawn and made to order, meaning you get to choose how you want them- broad or narrow, thick or thin. You can also pick from an array of proteins- from clam or shrimp to ox tail or lamb- to customize your dish.

Our iReporter suggests spicy pig ears to start while your noodles are being prepared. A few more insider tips- Nan Zhou Noodle House only accepts cash, so make sure to stop by an ATM on your way there. This joint is also BYOB, so while they do not sell wine or beer, you are welcome to bring your own to enjoy. Happy slurping!

Have your own suggestion for eating like a local? Share your iReport today!
