    Getting Catty at Jacksonville Zoo

    Kathleen Walls

    There are some places in Jacksonville a visitor should not miss. One of them is Jacksonville Zoo and Botanical Gardens. It's on the north side of Jacksonville and not in the main path of visitors headed into Jax's busy downtown.  It began back in 1914 and has grown ever since.  Read More.

    Gallup, New Mexico’s Tangible Tourism (Part 2)

    Renée S. Gordon

    New Mexico’s current state flag was adopted in 1925 as the result of a contest won by an archeologist. His design interprets the state’s history, culture, artistic traditions and the currents of spirituality that permeate the state. A design, pictured in the flag’s center, was found on a clay pot crafted by a woman from Zia Pueblo, New Mexico and represents the sacred Sun. Read more.

    The Other Side of Corinth

    Kathleen Walls

    We all recognize Corinth as a history center. Its Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center detailing the Battle of Corinth and its importance in the Civil War is the first thing most of us think when we hear Corinth mentioned. I do love visiting those spots but here is another side of Corinth that makes it a fun place to visit. Read more.

    Commodore Hotel:History Meets Hospitality

    Kathleen Walls

    "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in those years." Kathy and Michael Dumont live up to that slogan posted in the café of their Commodore Hotel in Linden, Tennessee.  Many people in retirement just take it easy and go with the flow. Not the Dumonts. In fact, they bucked the flow when they "retired" to the small town of Linden, in Perry County Tennessee named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. Read more.

    Gallup, New Mexico’s Tangible Tourism

    Renée S. Gordon

    A postal clerk once told me that I needed to pay international postage to mail a letter to New Mexico. She was surprised, as many people are, to learn that it gained statehood in 1912, has a documented history that spans thousands of years and is literally a microcosm of southwestern history. It benefits from the unique characteristic of featuring tangible sites and offering immersive activities that bring the history, arts and events to life in fresh and exciting ways. Read more.

    Long Beach, California, Sun, Sea and Royalty

    Renée S. Gordon

    Long Beach, CA, situated approximately 30-minutes south of LA, is a coastal gem with more than its share of lures for the traveler. The city, deemed one of the most ethnically diverse big cities in the country, has an average high of 82˚ and low of 64˚ with negligible rainfall. It was named Long Beach in 1888 because the beach winds 22-miles bordering the Pacific Ocean along San Pedro Bay. Today it offers a 3.5-mile bike trail, 11.5-miles of inland waterways and bays and greater than 30 water view restaurants.  Read more.

    Paul Bunyan’s Cook Shanty: 
    Wisconsin Logging Lore

    by Tom Straka 

    First off, not all readers will know the legend of Paul Bunyan. For those who don’t, one of the links at the end of this article is the Walt Disney version of the American folklore tale of Paul Bunyan. Paul is an American folk legend, along with the likes of (using Walt Disney’s series of folk legends as a guide) John Henry, Johnny Appleseed, Casey Jones, Pecos Bill, and Casey at the Bat. Paul Bunyan was a giant lumberjack that helped clear the northern United States, making way for progress and farmland. Legend has it that the reason there are no trees in the Dakotas is that Paul cleared them all away.Read more.

    McLemore House: A Step on Freedom's Ladder

    Kathleen Walls

    OWA: Big Water

    Kathleen Walls

    I love to visit new places and watch them grow over the years. OWA in Foley, Alabama is just such a place. The name means big water in the Muscogee Creek language; appropriate since the destination was created and owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. It's an amusement park; it's a shopping and dining location; it's an entertainment center. It's like a mini Branson. Read more 

    The Real Cassadaga

    Kathleen Walls

    Cassadage Spiritualist Camp is one of the most unique places in Florida. It is possibly the most misunderstood as well.  So many people view mediums as charlatans at carnivals. Here you learn a completely different version. Read more

    Oxford, MS Octet

    Renee S. Gordon

    Oxford, Mississippi, located in northern MS and the heart of the South, has a long and storied history that begins with the three great tribes, the Choctaw, Chickasaw and Natchez, that inhabited the region prior to European arrival in 1541. The land was meagerly populated until the end of the French and Indian War in 1763 and in 1798 Congress delineated the Mississippi Territory. The Chickasaw Indian Cession Treaty relocated the tribes in 1836 adding 6,283,804-acres to the territory, including what is now Oxford. Read more

    For Real Louisiana Food

    Kathleen Walls

    New Orleans is not the only place in Louisiana that you find mouth-watering dishes.  While you visit Antebellum plantations in the River Parishes, you can find a few places in the small city of LaPlace that can show some big-name chefs a thing or two.Read More

    Spring into Saint Augustine

    Kathleen Walls

    There’s a reason why USA Today counted St. Augustine among the top 10 travel destination in America last year and it was one of only three Florida cities included in TripAdvisor’s Top U.S. 25 Destinations in 2015. If you haven’t visited in a decade and remember a sleepy little town, you won’t recognize this new Oldest City. Read more

    Rock Shrimp Rock at Dixie Crossroads

    Kathleen Walls

    Seafood lovers, have you ever eaten rock shrimp? If not, head to Dixie Crossroads in Titusville, Florida as soon as you can. These little critters are delicious and there are not too many places you can find them. They are a cross between shrimp and lobster leaning heavily to the lobster side but having the shrimp size. The story of how Dixie Crossroads began serving them is almost as good as the tasty crustacean itself. Read more

    What You Need to Know about RVing

    Our GoRVing Trip

    By Kathleen Walls

    Our GoRVing trip around Florida went full bore. Not always smoothly because we had some strange technical bumps in the road. Since we nicknamed out Minnie Winnie “Ma Barker,” we can blame our problems on the ghost of Fred Barker who must have become attached to Ma Barker. She was his mother after all. Well, maybe! Or maybe strange vibes affected the electronics on the road. I'll give you a quick rundown of our trip but there will be many more stories coming down the line about all the fascinating places. Read more

    Revolutionary War Field Days 
    at Historic Camden

    By Tom Straka

    By 1778 the American Revolutionary War had stalemated, with the French joining the war to aid the Americans.

He commissioned Pierre L'Enfant to design the city. L'Enfant  tired for one-year then he abandoned the project taking his plans with him. Benjamin Banneker, a free African American, recreated those plans from memory so that the work could continue.  Read more

    Asbury Park, New Jersey Rocks On!

    Renee S. Gordon

    The thing about Icons is that we somehow expect them to be arrested in time and evoke our feelings In the same way forever.  They do not disappoint and they certainly do not succumb to the lure of changing times.  This can prove daunting for artists, structures and, most of all, cities. Asbury Park, New Jersey has managed to strike the perfect balance between memory and modernization, retro and revitalization and is a wonderful destination for families, group or solo getaways, beach lovers and music aficionados.Read more

    Detroit Foundation Hotel: 
    Something Old, Something New

    by Kathleen Walls

    You know a city has come of age when they repurpose a classic piece of their history. Detroit has done just that with the new Foundation Hotel. It opened the 100-room boutique hotel in May 2017 in what was once in the Detroit Fire Department headquarters. The building that is now the hotel was built in 1929, but this location housed fire equipment from 1840 until the Detroit Fire Department abandoned it in 2013. The end result is a blend of museum, art gallery, upscale dining and lodging with a touch of a local hangout.  Read more

    Shotskis, Winter Olympics and Art, oh my!

    by Anne Jenkins

    Early in October you're standing among hundreds on a historic Main Street watching two long lines of enthusiatic citizens, in groups of three. Each group is holding up a ski with three attached shot glasses topped up with whisky, all trying to drink it at the same time. Pinch yourself, you're in Utah. Park City, to be exact, and they're engaged in a friendly rivalry with Breckenridge, Colorado to see who can get in to the Guiness Book of Records in 2018 for the “Shotski Challenge”. Park City won. Breckenridge swears to rise to the challenge in 2019. Everyone has a grand time and lots of money is raised for local charities. Read more

    Craft a Classic Experience in Southwest Louisiana

    By Renee S. Gordon

    Louisiana is internationally famous for its Cajun and Creole cuisine and generally Chef Paul Prudhomme is credited for its introduction and popularization into the American mainstream. You can literally find great food everywhere in the state but ground zero for fresh, locally sourced, regional dishes is the Lake Charles area in Southwest Louisiana (SWLA). Here visitors can craft a special experience and soak up the history that led to this unique culture as well as dive into the adventure, music, art, festival, beverage and dining scenes. Read more

    Cave in Rock Revisited

    by Tom Straka Photographs by Pat Straka

    Back in the Fall 2014 we visited Cave-in-Rock, Illinois, on the edge of the Ohio River where a free ferry crosses over to Kentucky. It is a favorite route of ours and an especially fun alternative that avoids the interstate, facilitating a cross-state route (the long way) on mainly U.S. highways. We’ve covered the history and geology of the location in the past issue, but missed a key aspect that makes the stop even more attractive.  So attractive, we’ve revisited it. Read more

    Turpentining in Georgia

    Story by Tom Straka
    Photos by Pat Straka

    My spell checker tells me I have two suspicious words in the title. It has not heard of turpentining or a catface. Many of the readers can probably figure out what the former means, but I bet they don’t know what the latter is. There are lots of festivals across the country which provide a travel adventure immersed in local history and folk culture. The CatfaceTurpentine Festival held annually in early October in Portal, Georgia is one of those. Read more

    Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas

    by Renee S. Gordon

    Musical symphonies are composed of individual movements, distinct sections, written to be played by a large orchestra. Haydn and Mozart are credited with creating the classical symphonic arrangement and later composers have layered the form with creativity and innovations.

    One of the best attractions along Interstate 81 is the Natural Bridge of Virginia.

    American's oldest mystery has never been solved.The story began with the settlement of Roanoke in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The prelude was the earlier all-male expeditions.
