In just over a month, we are off to Sydney, Australia (from Washington, D.C.). The question has crossed my mind more than once, “How are we going to survive the trip?” Long-haul flights can take a real toll on your body and mind. Here’s my plan for surviving our 20+ hours in the air:
Just this morning, a 70-year old visitor to the Grand Canyon fell to her death–the FOURTH such falling death in the Canyon in the past month.
Based on the foolish behavior we witnessed at the Grand Canyon last week, it is almost surprising that such tragic deaths are not even more frequent. You will not believe what we saw!
Penguin mania is about to hit the country with Disneynature’s Earth Day release of its documentary, “Penguins”. Find out where you can have a great penguin encounter right here in the U.S.
Every March and April more than 1.5 million tourists descend upon Washington, D.C. to see the famous Cherry Blossoms. As we hit peak bloom, you might be asking yourself how you can visit the world-famous Tidal Basin without battling the crowds.
Years ago, I stumbled upon the secret.
We continue our countdown of the top St. Louis attractions with a story of what happens when people think big.
The Saint Louis Art Museum and its collection of more than 34,000 pieces is tucked away in the heart of sprawling Forest Park, just a stone’s throw from other popular attractions like the Saint Louis Zoo. Its iconic main building is the only surviving permanent structure constructed for the 1904 World’s Fair. Remarkably, admission to this sprawling and largely uncrowded gem is free to the public.
The top-notch collection here is massive. It did however leave us scratching our heads. My friend Kim and I couldn’t figure out how a city of just over 300,000 people ended up with not only a top-tier art museum, but one that is free to the public. So, I started digging to find out.
Looking for the top St. Louis attractions. Here are the places you don’t want to miss.
