Once you've explored Split to your heart's content, you can check out some of the region's great day trips. Just a short drive from the city is Salona, the first Roman capital of the region and a place we dug through for hours. You'll also find Krka National Park an hour north by car, giving you the perfect opportunity to travel the mountainous Croatian countryside and enjoy the near Autobahn like feel of the Balkan nation's highway system.
While the battlefield is immaculately preserved, the real highlight of the visit was sharing the Trail of Tears locations with my grandpa, reveling in our shared heritage and renewing an old bond that, while dormant since I moved to Iowa, has never weakened. I enjoyed him regaling me with tales of his army days while convincing me he could build a cannon like the ones found out in the field, and debating with Mrs. C&C which one he thinks would be easier to hook up to the car.
If you know Mr. C&C at all, you know he loves beaches. He is never happier than he is when he's on an ocean beach. A few miles away we found Muir Beach. With just a few tourists, the only sound you could hear were the seagulls and waves. And my husband's giggle as the waves washed over his feet and soaked his jeans.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
