    If you are visiting Austin, a visit to the Oasis Restaurant at Lake Travis is a must see and do!  The food is outstanding, but the real star of the show is the view of beautiful Lake Travis at sunset. Have a margarita on the porch and feel like a real Texan!!

    This is not an ordinary zoo, but rather, a sanctuary for abandoned, former laboratory, hard luck, and zoo surplus exotic animals. Nestled on the edge of the hill country, the zoo features more of an open, ranch style setting, with well-cared for animals including tigers, bears, monkeys, and lions, along with educational programs. Kids will enjoy the train, on which you can see areas and animals that are otherwise unreachable at the zoo. This is an entirely non-profit facility--they receive zero funding from the city.

    WOULD LOVE A TRIP TO THE BEACH

    My wife and I had the to go to Historical Williamsburg and spend a long weekend.  The Colonial Lodge and village was and exciting event.  The spa the way from the lodge is and way to spend a half a day getting pampered.  Then enjoy and evening meal at the lodge.

     

    There are six unique hotel properties, all of which are just a short walk to Colonial Williamsburg. The great thing is you do not need a car to get around once you arrive. 

     

    The Historical village is also part of the historic triangle which includes Jamestown ad Yorktown.

     

    In the heart of the Colonial Williamsburg, you step back into time and feel like you have become part of history and get a feeling of what it might have been like to live during this period.

     

    Spend a couple of days getting to know the townspeople, tradespeople, as well as the shop keepers.  Have fun shopping and purchasing 18th centntry goods and then join  local politicians and hear what political figures of the time had to say about the pending war with England. Spend your leisure walking and exploring the challenges of the daily life of townspeople, against the backdrop of revolutionary township.

    Boston is the cradle of liberty - history abounds here and there is so much to see and do.... but walking the city can wear you out.  My best tip -- the  Trolley Tours -- they let you hop on and off all day long with 19 stops including Fenway Park, the Boston Tea party ships,  Boston Commons, the old State House, Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market--And More.  See it all without burning shoe leather.  Unlimited on and off, no time schedule but your own.   Enjoy Boston!

    Traveling to Austin, TX is so much fun.  One of my favorite places to visit is Whole Foods Flagship Store.  It's the first Whole Foods ever.  They have everything and loads of samples.  So much fun!

    In the heart of NY City lies Central Park. Most people do not know they have a wonderful zoo inside which one can view very active polar animals such as this play polar bear.DSC01193.JPG

    Kennesaw Mountain National Park is such a great place to walk/hike and enjoy the history that happened there during the Civil War... Battleground of the Atlanta Campaign.  I sure enjoyed  when I lived there.

    Everyone who visits New York should walk the High Line if the weather is nice. If it's not - then just go through the Chelsea Market.

    If you visit Tampa, I highly recommend La Teresita for great (& inexpensive) Cuban food. You can sit at the counter or at a table in the larger dining area. Hugo's is also really good.

    To get away from the husle and bustle, visit the Cloisters. Relax and enjoy the medieval experience.

    Never knowing if I'll encounter disturbing noises that could keep me awake, I travel with a sound machine and let the ocean lull me to sleep - also helps if I pack my own silky pillowcase

    Public transportation. Get out of your car. Take the Metro, light rail, mono rail or a ferry.  Snag a transfer, good for a couple hours of bus hopping. Enjoy the sites. The views on the 520 bridge include Mt Rainer, back side of Seattle skyline, Lake Washington wild life and boating. Ferry to Bainbridge island, Bremerton, do the Titantic stand on the bow overlooking Seattle skyline and Ferris wheel

    Columbia sc zoo is a great spot to go

  • kmflener

    This is a sanctuary for big cats (lions, tigers, jaguars, etc) who have been abused or bought as pets then owner could not care for them or they have been rescued from road side carnivals, etc.  This is so much better of experience than your typical zoo or even Bush Gardens.  You are taken on a tour by your private tour guide (small group).  You get to be up close to these amazing animals.  And when the lion roars you can actually feel the earth move!  It is amazing.  I live in the Tampa area (decades) and have been to just about every amusement park and zoo - this is #1

    In NYC, there is no better low priced attraction than the Staten Island Ferry.

    This is a wonderful, peaceful combination of an old European monastery/convent and an art museum.  It's setting is lush and tranquil and feels like it's far away from bustling New York City but it's really a bus or subway ride from downtown.  The artwork - paintings, carvings and statues -is authentic and from the time and places evoked by the architectural setting.  I especially loved the gardens!  Go and visit, you will be glad that you did.
