A Boston native and Washington, DC, resident, Allee has been growing her bucket list since she began working as an Interactive Producer for TravelChannel.com. When not playing with her Frenchie named Pearl, Allee can be found inputting destinations into Kayak.com in the hopes of finding a deal on a flight to visit friends or family -- she’s lucky enough to have couches to crash on in Boston, New Orleans, Miami, New York and more. No matter how far she goes or what incredible trips she takes, her favorite place on Earth will always be a little island off the coast of Massachusetts: Nantucket.

George Motz is the host of Burger Land. Check out behind-the- scenes photos from the show, and be sure to tune in to learn more about America’s burgers!

It all started with a documentary I made years ago called Hamburger America. The film visits 8 iconic and unique hamburger locations across the country and focuses not only on their amazing burgers, but also the people behind the burgers. Each restaurant featured in the film has been around for more than 40 years, uses only fresh meat, and in many cases can boast the fact that ownership has stayed within the same family. READ MORE

Hurricane Isaac may have just weakened to tropical storm status, but Louisiana residents continue to brace themselves as the water flows over the levees in Plaquemine Parish, and high winds and rain water continue to barrel down on the city and its surrounding areas.

CNNMoney is already reporting that the storm could cost $1.5 billion in damage, and there are currently 725,000 people without power across Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas. READ MORE

After his stint as a pop-up restaurateur during this season of Bizarre Foods: America, it was only a matter of time before the bizarre foodie himself hopped on the food truck bandwagon.

Andrew will be there in person, so if you’re anywhere in the St. Paul, MN, vicinity, head on down to the state fair for a taste of Andrew’s Andouille, oyster and crab gumbo; pork belly with papaya salad; goat butter burgers; griddled veal tongue; or Nicaraguan dulce de leche.

Dubbed “the Venice of the North” for its many waterways, Stockholm offers the best of both worlds — a booming metropolis steeped in culture and history, without the dingy feel of some of the other big cities in Europe. One of the cleanest cities of its size, Stockholm was Europe’s first “green” capital and maintains much of its natural splendor in the parks that cover one-third of the city. READ MORE

The ongoing expansion at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom has taken a few noticeable steps forward in the past few days.

A massive statue of “Beauty and the Beast” villain Gaston has arrived on-site, and is now being put in place in the midst of the as-yet unfinished Belle’s Village section of Fantasyland Forest. Gaston, who will take his place in a fountain, joins the Be Our Guest restaurant (a new quick service by day/table service by night restaurant set in Beast’s Castle,) Gaston’s Tavern (actually a misnomer, because the Magic Kingdom is a dry park) and Bonjour Gifts.

Here are the latest projected dates for the largest, most expensive expansion in Magic Kingdom history:

- Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid is a dark ride bringing guests below the waves to join scenes from the classic Disney film. Disney projects this attraction will open by the holidays in 2012.

- Enchanted Tales with Belle where guests will be transported by a magical mirror into an immersive storytelling experience is expected to open by the holidays.

- The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a coaster using a first-of-its-kind ride system where the attractions’ mine cars swing back and forth through a curving, plunging diamond mine, will open in 2014.

- Princess Fairytale Hall – Say goodbye to the Snow White’s Scary Adventures attraction, and say hello to Tiana, Cinderella, et al. Meet Disney’s royalty in the Castle Courtyard right in the center of Fantasyland. A castle entrance of stone, stained glass windows and princess portraits will lend this meet-and-greet area a noble atmosphere. Expect to get your princess hugs by late 2013.

Already open in the ongoing project are the Great Goofini’s Barnstormer coaster, the Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station, the Fantasyland Train Station and now 2 Dumbo the Flying Elephant attractions. As one whirls through the sky clockwise, its twin takes guests on a counter-clockwise journey. The queue area for the newest Dumbo attraction is inside, awash in glorious air conditioning and featuring a play area for kids to cavort in. Parents are given a pager, which alerts them when its time to get back in line.

Also this week, guests have discovered that Disney has quietly opened free Wi-Fi access throughout the Magic Kingdom. Agree to Disney’s terms-of-service and you’re on your way. Speeds and connection have been reported as spotty, as is cellular service in the park. The Wi-Fi is expected to play a role in Disney’s NextGen system, designed to take advantage of technology to better customize and enhance guest experience.

Disney rolled out free Wi-Fi throughout its resorts earlier this summer.
