An energy revolution is happening east of Long Island. In the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Deepwater Wind is constructing the nation's first offshore wind farm -- five wind turbines off Block Island, Rhode Island.
The first time I saw stand up paddleboarding (or "SUP-ing" as it's known), I was on a beautiful cove in Gloucester, Massachusetts. A young teen was gliding on the water in the distance along the rocky shoreline. It looked both peaceful and freeing--a hybrid somewhere between kayaking and surfing.
If you should go on any vacation, it should be during the upcoming Labor Day weekend from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1. The holiday is, after all, dedicated to American workers and their contributions to the country.
