Final Stretch of Winter

Jesse Simon

It’s that time of year when I’ve had enough of the winter, cold, snow and darkness. While it's not spring time yet, I’ve mentally moved on to warm sunshine, green grass and 70-degree temperatures. The change of seasons and longer days does wonders to ease tension, and help us relax and unwind. Unfortunately, Mother Nature can be a cruel mistress, and may well extend our winter into April and beyond.

To help you get through the final stretch of winter, we have some great content in this issue of Live Play AAA. In our cover story, Renata Faeth shares delightful finds in Hawaii, and how travelers can take advantage of everything the Aloha State has to offer. Alesha Taylor provides an excellent review of Holland, Michigan, and what makes it a great destination for regional travels. For music lovers, our associate editor Raya Garrison reviews the Minnesota musicians, bands and venues that are part of our storied music scene.

I hope you enjoy this issue of Live Play AAA!
