Paradise for the plucky Lana'i is heaven -- if quiet, natural beauty, far from the madding crowd, is your ideal. But this rural Hawaiian island is a bit short on some of the amenities that soothe body and soul. Story

  • Lana'i's beauty comes equipped with cautions
    LANA'I, Hawaii -- First, pronounce it as do the islanders: Lah-nah-EE. If you call it Lah-NIGH, as some Floridians refer to their patios, everyone on the island will understand you -- and will identify you as a haole (HOW-lee), a sometimes-disparaging Hawaiian word for a non-native.
  • Chances are, you didn't know this about Hawaii
    HONOLULU -- Hawaii has been an American state for more than 40 years, but there are several unusual aspects of the place that still surprise visitors to the Islands.

Don't leave home without your home
The newest recreational vehicles offer room to stretch out, do the laundry or just take in the changing vistas from the bay window.

Pedal pumpers find adventure on road
A group of casual weekend bikers takes on Martha's Vineyard. The trip includes first-class accommodations and meals -- and some overwhelming hills.

Shop RV shows for accessories
Making the most of limited space is an art form, and manufacturers are constantly updating their offerings. One RV show finishes up today at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
