Rundown for the Week of April 15, 2000

Hitting the Mystery Spot
From the reptile museums of Arizona to the Cadillac Ranch in Texas, roadside attractions promise visitors a glimpse of the fantastic and the strange. This week Rachel Anne Goodman takes us to The Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz, California, where the laws of physics don't seem to apply.

Looking to Russia for Love
If you're really need a holiday, how about going somewhere exotic with a bit of romance thrown in? That's what our reporter Martin Stott wanted and that's what we gave him. But you know, we like to keep Martin on his toes. He'd be bored if we made it too easy.

Getting Back to Nature
We've been exploring some of the most interesting vacation spots in North America, including historic inns in State and National parks. This week we travel to the mountains of North Georgia. Kitty Felde reports on a lodge with a distinctly Southern flavor.

The Joys of Inter-marital Travel
We have some advice for married couples thinking about traveling together. Is it easier or harder to travel with two people or four? Counseling for traveling couples is on the way.

Running on the Road
For those runners on the go, we found a terrific resource. Doug Rennie is a contributing editor at Runner's World Magazine where he writes a column called "On the Road". Doug's got the scoop on the best places to run in dozens of cities here and abroad.

Next Week
We travel to the Middle East for a little Bellydancing. Then jet over to Austria for one of our infamous Bad Taste Tours, although this one, I think, is debatable.

"Just as the whole Mozart thing was getting a bit tired, Rogers and Hammerstein breezed into town with their tale of captains and nuns and children dressed in old curtains, and started a whole new tourist stampede."

The Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, Austria. Is it in poor taste? You decide during next week's edition of the Savvy Traveler.
