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
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.
Deal of the Week
The Battle of the $99 Air Fares
Question of the Week
The Kindness of Strangers
The Savvy Travelers' Tropical Island Getaway Contest
St. George's Day in Barcelona, Spain
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
The Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, Austria. Is it in poor taste?
