Cape Charles Is The Best Little Beach Town in Virginia

This friendly town on the Chesapeake Bay feels a bit like Mayberry. Here on the southern end of Virginia's Eastern Shore, kids shuffle down the pier with fishing poles and Cokes, wispy-haired men swap stories outside the hardware store, and the whole place seems to tuck in for the night not long after the sun goes down. But Cape Charles is decidedly more cosmopolitan than Andy Griffith's stomping grounds. Just east of the hardware store is Hotel Cape Charles, a sleek boutique stay that offers complimentary beach cruisers for guests. Across the street is Cape Charles Distillery, where they pour elevated cocktails crafted with locally made spirits.

Ulster County Boy Gets Birthday Surprise From Area Police Officers

It's amazing to see so many in law enforcement make this 4-year-old boy's birthday one to remember. As most of us scroll through social media on a regular basis, lots of time we come across someone asking for recommendations for something that they are looking for. It can be anything and most times friends are willing to share one or two, but when a community responds the way Ulster County law enforcement did when one mom asked, "Anyone know a police officer?" it has to be highlighted.

A ‘hot-button topic’

MARQUETTE — Short-term rentals have become a hot-button topic for municipal governments across the state, including the city of Marquette. Short-term rentals gained popularity as companies such as Airbnb began offering a platform for homeowners to offer their residences for nightly or weekly stays. The practice can encourage landlords to move into the short-term rental market, which can cause a shortage of long-term rentals and for-sale housing in return, according to research conducted by the Harvard Business Review.
