Readers' Choice Destination
You told him where to go

In January we asked readers what destinations -- one in Florida, one elsewhere in North America and one outside the continent -- they would like to see visited this year by Travel Editor Robert N. Jenkins.

Irish idyll
[Times photo: Robert N. Jenkins]
Southern Ireland has many charms among its craggy shorelines and rolling terrain, not the least of which is its people. Story

  • 'All the seasons in one day'
    There's more to Cork than its capricious weather.
  • Which way do you go?
    In Ireland, the signposts won't help much, even if you're driving on the correct side of the road. Be prepared to be confused by them -- if you can even see them.
  • Getting to know the Irish
    You'll find out more about the Irish if you visit their "locals" -- the corner pubs that toast their sociable nature.
  • Quiet stones tell a story
    Ireland's ancient past whispers from its ruins, fallen remnants of war and religion, fragments of communities that flourished centuries ago.
  • Riding an economic boom
    Unemployment is down and incomes are up as industry invades Ireland.
  • Drinking in the culture
    A personal pilgrimage to the pubs of Dublin.

A monumental documentary
Just in time for our nation's birthday, the Discovery Channel traces the history of the Washington Monument, from its beginning in fits and starts to its ongoing restoration.
