Sure, we love all the speed and comfort of modern travel, but it didn't get that way overnight. Every Thursday, we're going to take a look back at travel the way it used to be, whether that's decades or centuries ago. This is Throwback Thursday, travel edition.
How much was a 10-day Bahamas cruise over 60 years ago? Well, you have your answer in the ad above, placed in Playboy in 1960. It advertises a voyage on a Windjammer sailing ship, departing Miami, with stops at Bimini, the Berry Islands, Nassau, Havana, Abaco, Cay Sal, and Grand Bahama all for $175 per person.

Snow? Slush? Ice? Never heard of it. Unless it comes in the form of a slushy, boozy drink. Welcome to Miami, where it's a sunny 75 degrees in the middle of winter and the arrival of The Season means that the town is full of the bold, the beautiful and the highly entertaining.
Here are five ways to get into the swing of things here on South Beach:

This weekend the white tents will once again line Ocean Drive as the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE descends on Miami.
The festival will take place February 21 – 24, 2013 and it features dozen of special tasting and celebrity events including Garden to Glass with Emeril Lagasse, a Celebrity Chef Golf Tournament, the Southern Kitchen Brunch hosted by Trisha Yearwood, and the Amstel Light Burger Bash hosted by Rachael Ray, all in addition to the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village.
Yes, it's almost that time againtime to fistpump, get your "GTL" on and stock up on cranberry juice mixer, because Jersey Shore Season 2 begins on July 29 on MTV. Until then however, you can always rewatch the 18-minutes preview clip shown during this last weekend's MTV Movie Awards.
The clip, embedded below, shows the cast in middle of New York City's winter 2009/10 "Snowmageddon," which especially infuriates Pauldy D, who says, "you can't get tan in this weather, you can't creep in this weather." And so they're off to Miami Beach, where the cast believes that "most of the beaches are topless," and where they hope to make even greater fortunes as reality stars and party jokes.
Jersey Shore, we wish we knew how to quit you. But with Season 2 filming now in Miami, we luckily don't have to, and so instead we'll be tracking your debaucherous, Ed Hardy-clad steps all around the Art Deco district.
According to these pics from stalkerazzi site, X17 Online, it looks like MTV is putting the cast of Jersey Shore to work again. Last year it was at a silly souvenir t-shirt shop on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights, NJ. This year, it's the Lecca-lecca Gelato Caffe on Collins Aveue, just a block from the beach and close to hotels, trendy restaurants and shops galore.
The phrase "most important art show in the United States," when placed next to "Miami Beach", makes us uncomfortable, because Miami is the city that brought us The Birdcage, Miami Sound Machine and Perez Hilton. But from December 6-9, Miami switches from sweltering to sophisticated, playing host to Art Basel Miami Beach, arguably the country's most noteworthy art fair.
Now in its 6th year, Art Basel Miami Beach has added an additional 18 satellite shows to its roster. In addition to events taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the fair's newest additions have elbowed into Art Basel's already jam-packed list of events. Depending upon your area of interest in the arts, the fair doesn't need to be so overwhelming. We've broken down a few of the newest additions that are worth checking out.
Like pretty much everything else in the city, Art Basel Miami Beach is loud, proud, overpriced and decked out in white. Still, it's one of the top parties on the international art circuit. If you are a jet-setter or just want to play one for a weekend, there's no place else you should be December 6 to 9.
An extension of the celebrated Art Basel show in Switzerland, the Miami Beach version inundates 200 galleries with the work of 2,000 artists and the attitudes of countless more buyers and hangers-on. Snatching up the hottest stuff from the bleeding edge of contemporary art is important but so too is hanging around eating canapes. (Or not eating canapes, depending on whether you have a modeling contract.)
One of the best venues is "Art Positions", a collection of shipping containers set up as galleries right next to the beach. New York's PS1 is organizing the DJs, films will play under the stars and on the eve of the event, December 5, a rollicking concert will kick things off.
