    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!!

    I live in the wilds of western WIsconsin but have an AMTRAK station 8 miles from my door.  It's so fun to hop aboard the AMTRAK to Chicago.  There I get a locker for my belongings, and then hop a cab to my favorite sights, the Art Institute, Navy Pier, and a good grocer.  Here I can find many foods that aren't available in my neck of the woods, and the small cooler I have in the storage locker comes in handy!

    when traveling to India, so not drink open water.  Be sure to drink bottled only. Too many local parasites will ruin your vacation.

    If you ever get the chance to see Chicago, make sure to take time to find a "Chicago Architectural Boat Tour".


    You get on a big boat and travel up and down the chicago river while getting great details about the beautiful buildings that tower over the city.


    It is an incredible way to spend a nice after noon and the tours start down at Navy Pier; which also is close to many other fun things to see

    While in Atlanta, don't miss the CNN Center.  You will be able to make your very own news video!

    While in Boston, be sure to take a cruise to whalewatch.  Humpback whales galore!

    While in Chicago, take in a dinner and theater and listen to real jazz on Halstead.

    While in Denver, visit the Butterfly Museum.  Amazing!

    While in Las Vegas, get away to Sam's Town.  It's a break from all the LV craziness!

    While in New York, you must see the area where 9/11 happened.  It will stay with you.

    While in Portland, who knew they had a Japanese Garden?  Beautiful!

    While in San Francisco, you must travel down Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the U.S.

    While in Seattle, you must make a side trip to Victoria's Butchart Gardens.  You won't believe how beautiful!  You can even take home some on their homegrown delights!

    While in Washington, D.C., be sure to tour the FBI building, the theater where Lincoln was shot and the house in which he died which is located right across the street.

    The observation deck at the top of the Wills Tower with the clear, see through floor is quite the experience and is rather unsettling to step out on the see through floor that high up, but is a great experience.  This is definately one of the things you need to do while in Chicago.  if nothing else, at least go up to the observation deck for the great view of Chicago.

    The Illinois Railway Museum is America's Largest Railway Museum and is open all year round with special events.  It has something for all ages including train rides for oldsters and special visits like Thomas the Tank Engine and Percy for the youngsters.  I has one of the original Union Pacific Turbine Electric Engines on site.  You can make a day of it as they have a restaurant on the grounds in a convenient location and a gift shop.  Visit the depot or see the many Trolley, Steam/Diesel engines, Passenger cars or Electric cars on site.  It has an excellent web site at www.IRM.com that is very descriptive and complete. Also a phone number of (815) 923-4000 if you need to call.  If the kids or grand kids have never been on a train or seen a train up close, this is were to take them.  For the oldsters it brings back many memories.

    Located in Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago, the Baha'i Temple imparts a feeling of serenity and beauty.  It is a welcome contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city.
