Dec 5, 2013  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

There are few places in America with a richer history than Philadelphia. Benjamin Franklin flew his famous electricity-seeking kites there, the Quakers settled in the area to escape religious tyranny, and Betsy Ross sewed flags in her quaint cottage home in this city.  While history remains one of Philly's draws, a new surge of hospitality and culture is seeping into the City of Brotherly Love, particularly with the 2012 opening of the Kimpton's group Hotel Monaco Philadelphia. Earlier this fall, I paid a short visit to the vibrant hotel and was captivated by its artful design and delightful spirit.

An American Safari: Jackson Hole's Vast Terrain, Wildlife and Luxury Lodgings

Staying at sister properties Hotel Terra and the Teton Mountain Lodge in the Teton Village, I once again discovered my love for this great wilderness.
