THE CARIBBEAN ISLE CAPTIVATES AC­TRESS DAN­ICA MCKEL­LAR

Closer Weekly - - Great Escape -

That was the first place my hus­band and I vis­ited to­gether, just six weeks af­ter we met,” for­mer Wonder Years star Dan­ica McKel­lar tells Closer of her trip to Cuba. “We loved Ha­vana. The his­tory, mu­sic, food…there’s so much to en­joy!” Dan­ica, 43, whose new TV movie, Love in De­sign, pre­mieres on Hall­mark Chan­nel on Sept. 15, says they es­pe­cially en­joyed vis­it­ing an out­door mar­ket in the cap­i­tal city where “a tiny girl was danc­ing to am­bi­ent Afro-Cuban jazz. That 4-yearold had some moves!”

Cuba is now eas­ier to visit for Amer­i­cans, and there’s much to dis­cover — from tobacco farms to Ha­vana’s coastal es­planade, the Malecón. Dan­ica and hus­band Scott Sves­losky also rode horses in the town of Viñales, where, she says, “The lush val­leys are filled with dome-shaped lime­stone hills and beauty as far as the eye can see.” In a word, Cuba is “mag­i­cal!” — Lisa
