Not from the IRS, though.

The city of North Charleston and Charleston County stand to collect more than half of a seven-figure legal settlement with a long list of travel websites, most of them owned and operated by Expedia, Priceline, Travelocity and Orbitz.

It’s the latest turn in a long-running nationwide dispute over hospitality taxes that many municipaliti……….. continues on Charleston Post Courier.

A report from The Guardian:

The taxi turns into Cliff Road in Burton Bradstock and drops us at the Seaside Boarding House. Up to this point the chatter has been about Spurs’ fading top-four hopes and the demise of Portsmouth Football Club, but now there’s a pause.

“Wow! It’s the view you’re paying for, isn’t it?” says the driver. You know you’re off to a good start when a man whose regular beat includes Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is impressed.

Stand outside the simple, unimposing house and its cliff-top location offers views of Chesil Beach, Portland and Weymouth to the east; look west and there is Lyme Regis and, a little closer to home, West Bay, where the TV crime drama Broadchurch was filmed. You could, of course, just gaze out at the sea or walk down the path to the beach – which takes less than a minute. Relaxing and downshifting are essential for making the best of a break in this most glorious of settings.

A report from Travel Weekly:

The Zamas Hotel in Tulum focuses on local food, art and drink and the natural surroundings and nearby Mayan ruins.

When Susan Bohlken and Daniel Vallejo McGettigan opened the Zamas Hotel in 1993, their goal was to create “an ecologically responsible, nonresort hotel in the middle of the Mayan ruins, jungle and beaches.”

To set it apart in the highly competitive Cancun/Riviera Maya market, the property relies on its location (the picturesque town of Tulum, near the Tulum Ruins to the north and Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve to the south), its setting (two acres on the Caribbean coast), its accommodations (18 beachside cabanas and bungalows nestled in the jungle or a coconut grove) and its focus (local food, drink and art).

A big part of that focus, and a mainstay of its promotional efforts, is the annual Taste of Tulum, a visiting chef and bartender series that pays homage to the founders’ hometown of San Francisco.

Chefs and mixologists from the Bay area shop in local farmers’ markets and then prepare a dinner menu for guests served in the open-air, beachfront dining rooms of Que Fresco.

“San Francisco has always been at the forefront of the culinary scene. This year’s first event, in March, featured San Francisco chef Anthony Strong of Delfina R……….. continues on Travel Weekly.
