During my East Coast odyssey of ’08, I spent a few weeks researching America’s castles, many of which are located in the Northeast, particularly Newport, Rhode Island, and New York’s Hudson River Valley and Long Island. The article is finally live on ForbesTraveler.com:
While in Newport to dig a little deeper into the history of Belcourt Castle, I also happened to be on deadline for another assignment. Instead of rushing back to my hotel to use the lobby Wi-Fi, I was fortunate enough to hang out in the castle a little longer, flanked by two suits of armor. It was definitely one or my more unique writing locations.
I’d still love to visit Wing’s Castle and Coral Castle, since they’re both such oddballs, as well as check out OHEKA, which I’m sure has changed greatly since my sister got married there a thousand years ago.
