Looking for some frightening fun? Here’s our shortlist for how to get scared on vacation. Those who like their encounters dripping with drama can sign up for a candlelit tour of Frederick, a major crossroads during the Civil War. Storytellers dressed in 1800s attire lead visitors through dark streets and alleyways while sharing otherworldly tales, such as the legend of Unionist Barbara Fritchie.
French explorer Samuel de Champlain was one of the first to extol the charms of Mount Desert Island, off of Maine’s southern coast, but he was far from the last. A popular route among travelers today, the 40-mile-long Acadia All-American Road affords some of New England’s finest coastal views and quaint village appeal. The lasso-shaped route begins on the mainland in Ellsworth and follows Maine State Route 3 onto Mount Desert Island, much of which is covered by Acadia National Park .
Each year, millions of visitors take to New England’s scenic highways and well-trodden trails for a glimpse of the region’s flame-colored foliage. For travelers eager to see the sights while staying off the beaten path, here are three ways to “peep” in locations that are anything but ordinary. Originally built in 1808, the candy-cane-striped West Quoddy Head Lighthouse was commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson on Maine’s easternmost point and still guides ships to safety today.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
