The women on the infamous Real Housewives franchises are always traveling.  Last season, the cast of Bravo TV’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta took a grand safari trip in Africa. Here at Travel Channel, we like to focus on the cool cultural experiences that come with traveling — but where there are housewives, there’s always drama. READ MORE

Elvis

Elvis Week is now in full swing, with festivities having kicked off last Friday in downtown Memphis. The week’s highlight was definitely its most moving: Last night through this morning, fans gathered outside the gates of Graceland to mark the 35th anniversary of the King’s passing. (The candlelight vigil’s surprise guests were none other than Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley.) READ MORE

This weekend, Los Angeles has been taken over by foodies from around the world. Chefs come from near and far to show off their skills in cooking demos, offer their expertise at roundtable discussions and serve their delicious creations to the gourmands who were smart enough to buy a ticket to the Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival.

This is only the second year of this festival –with venues in Santa Monica, downtown LA, Hollywood and Beverly Hills — and it’s already a big deal. Last year’s festival featured more than 30 restaurants and 200 vineyards, and this year’s tops that with chefs such as Giada de Laurentiis, the Voltaggio brothers and even our own Andrew Zimmern serving the 15,000 people who are expected to attend.

Need another opportunity to fill your stomach with the best food and wine around? Check out our photos of the Best Food & Wine Festivals in the US, see The Lost Girls’ picks for the best destinations for a food and wine-themed girls’ getaway or grab your significant other and take a Wine Tour Weekend.

Summer Sanders with Michelle Obama at the Olympics

We asked 1992 Olympic gold-medalist and TV personality Summer Sanders to tell us all about her trip to this year’s Olympics in London. She told us about her favorite British treat (tea time, anyone?) and who she was most star-struck to meet (we don’t blame her!).

Summer offers a first-hand opinion on how this year’s Olympics are so different from previous games and what it was like to witness history at the Aquatic Center.

Read Summer’s Postcard from London with her tips on where to stay, what to do and what to pack!

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s tragic death. The air of mystery that surrounded her both in life and in death makes it difficult to not be intrigued by the sex symbol. To honor her, a special exhibition of 23 candid photos of Marilyn will be on display at the Phil Stern Gallery in Los Angeles, starting today.

But if you can’t be in LA to explore the actress’s life through photographs, then check out some of these destinations and relive her most famous films:

Star in your own larger-than-life version of the The Seven Year Itch by getting a photograph with the famous 26-foot-tall Marilyn statue, which now stands in Palm Springs, CA.

If you’re anything like us, you were probably wondering where the Batcave is actually located (and if it’s a real place) as opposed to paying attention to the plot of Dark Knight Rises. We loved the movie, and we can’t help but be a little destination-obsessed here at Travel Channel. The Gotham City of Dark Knight was so obviously Chicago, that the new locations in Dark Knight Rises had us wondering, “Is that New York?” Turns out, most of it wasn’t.

Last night, true love prevailed as The Bachelorette’s Emily Maynard gave her final rose to her favorite bachelor. But if you’re anything like us, you were more interested in their chosen destination of Curacao than in who rode off into the sunset with our dear Emily. Luckily for us, the resort that was featured in the final episodes, Sandton Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club, is giving romantics everywhere the opportunity to experience your own Bachelorette Dream Getaway.

The Sandton Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club in Curacao — with its 18th and 19th-century Dutch Colonial Caribbean buildings, courtyards, pools, award-winning restaurants and spa — hosted the 2 private one-on-one dates in the second to last episode and was the setting for the finale’s rose ceremony. With its exclusive new packages, the resort is offering viewers the chance to step into Emily’s shoes and recreate the Bachelorette experience.
