Little Tourist Attraction in San Diego

Supposedly there is a midgetville in San Diego, CA. This is a small community that is populated by midgets, or little people and it is located on what is called Soledad Mountain. Soledad has a large white cross at the top and is considered a prestigious place to live. I hear that the little people that live their want to blend into the community so it's not really publicized. The homes are smaller and the doors and mailboxes are much smaller too. There are midgetvilles all across the US. Supposedly in Utah, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Their history, influences and culture can be scene everywhere. The Hancock Shaker Village is one of the most interesting tourist attractions in Massachusetts. Unlike the Quakers who settled in New England, the Shakers did not shun modern customs. They were very progressive for their time. If you visit their 18th century village, there is plenty to see and experience. Of course the Visitors Center and Museum Store presents you with all you need to know.

Congested US Summer '05 Tourist Attractions

The American Highway Users Alliance, AAA, and TRIP, a transportation research group have partnered to come up with the most congested tourist attraction areas in the US. They have predicted that this summer will be the busiest summer for US travel in history. They expect that over 328 million leisure trips are expected in the US this summer alone. The following list is what they predict will have the largest bottlenecks:

The Oregon coast
Tidewater region of Virginia
Maryland/Delaware shore
Branson, Mo.
Outer Banks, N.C.
Cape Cod, Mass.
New Jersey shore
Napa Valley, Calif.
Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish Country
Catskill Mountains region in New York
Pocono Mountains/Lake Wallenpaupack, Penn.
Provo Canyon, Utah
Yosemite National Park, Calif.
Asheville, N.C.
Sun Valley, Idaho
Lake Tahoe Area, Nev.-Calif.
Lake Winnipesaukee, N.H.
Yellowstone National Park, Wyo.-Idaho-Mont.
Presque Isle State Park, Penn.
Acadia National Park, Maine
White Mountains, N.H.
Lake George, N.Y.
Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Whitewater region, Idaho
The Hamptons, Long Island, N.Y.

If any of these destinations are in your plans, expect some delays. If you can change plans and maybe visit in the fall, you might be better off. The US is bursting at the seams with tourist attractions so there should be no way you wont find somewhere to take the kids. Patience is the key and expect that if you think a particular attraction is worth seeing, then many other people will feel the same way.

Carhenge in Alliance Nebraska is an "exact" replica of the mysterious Stonehenge in England except that it's located in a field on the outskirts of town and built entirely out of cars painted gray to look "authentic".

Abe Lincoln's Springfield Tourist Attraction

Abraham Lincoln, our nation's 16th President is buried in Springfield, Illinois near where he spent most of his adult life. He is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetary along with his wife Mary and three of his four sons. The other son is buried in Arlington, VA. His tomb has a 117-foot tall granite tower which is visible from anywhere in the area. Lincoln's tomb attracts visitors from all over the world, some of whom bring flowers as a tribute. As you drive up, you will see giant oak trees against gently rolling hillsides. His tomb features the famous bronze Lincoln statuary. It's worth a visit just to see this sculpture. Tourists often stop to rub the nose of this beautiful bronze bust at the entrance. Inside the tomb, you see bronze statues and excerpts from some of Lincoln speeches. A circular hallway leads to the marble burial chamber where Secretary Stanton's famous words command your attention: "Now he belongs to the ages." A red marble marker stands above the area where Lincoln's coffin lies. His body actually rests below the floor in a steel and concrete-reinforced vault. If you visit at 7 p.m. on Tuesday evenings from June through August, you can see a flag-lowering ceremony enacted by volunteers in Civil War uniforms.

Biograph Theatre, A Rich in Tradition Chicago Landmark

The Biograph Theatre on Lincoln Avenue in Chicago is best known by Chicagoans as the place where John Dillinger was shot and killed in 1934. The theatre is supposedly haunted (by Dillinger himself). I used to visit the Biograph back in the 70's when it played mostly 2nd run movies and midnight showings of the cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show. They had the seat in which Dillinger was sitting in the night the Lady in Red gave him up to the feds painted white. Dillinger sat right near the side exit in case you were wondering. It has changed ownership several times since then and is currently being renovated for a theatre group to move into. For those interested in visiting the historical locations in Chicago, the Biograph is worthy of a look. It's just a few blocks north of where the famous St. Valentine's Day Massacre took place.

Houston Tourist Attraction that is out of this World

Any trip to Houston, Texas should include a trip to the Johnson Space Center (NASA) located just SW of Houston. Did you know that the word "Houston" was the first word spoken from the surface of the moon? "Houston, Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed". Of course you get to see Mission Control, the room that you see on TV all the time whenever there is anything to do with the space program. But the tour through the JSC is much more than that one room. You get to see and touch an actual lunar module, a lunar "car" and see real "moon rocks". The Johnson Space center is where the training for all the space travelers take place. You will also learn about future projects that NASA has planned. No rockets are launched there. They all launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida. But outside, layed on it's side is a real rocket that you can actually see close up. Over 15,000 civil servants and contractors work at the JCS, out of which only 110 are astronauts. Of course they have a great gift shop where you can pick up some souvenirs.

Boston seafood restaurant - Legal Seafoods restaurant chain

If you like a wide selection of seafood entres' and you are willing to try a chain restaurant, then we highly recommend Legal Seafoods in Boston as a top seafood restaurant.

Legal Seafoods is known for their fantastic New England clam chowder, oysters on the half shell and excellent variety of fish. I love their pastas too! The nice thing is, you can eat at one of their locations at Logan airport on your way out of town.

Kentucky Tourist Attraction, Mammoth Cave

Mammoth Cave in South Central Kentucky was one of the most interesting tourist attractions that I ever visited. The caves are home to about 130 forms of life. All of whom have adapted to cave life. It has in it's underground world more than 360 miles of explored and mapped caves and tunnels. That's approx. the distance from San Diego, CA to Las Vegas, NV! Geologists estimate that there are still over 600 miles of unexplored caverns. Of course you don't have to hike the entire 360 miles. The National Park Service has it conveniently laid out in short tours which range from 3/4 mile to the Wild Cave Tour which is over 5 miles. Most of the tours have restrooms and most sell out in advance. As it exists right now, it is three times the size of any other known cave in the world.

Southern California Taste of India

We discovered a Southern California Indian restaurant in Temecula that was amazing. The food was so authentic and well presented that I felt we were actually in Bombay. A Taste of India is it's name. The aroma that smacks you as you enter is heavenly. I dont know all the exotic spices that the Indians use to cook with but whatever they are, they combine perfectly for a wonderful experience. Of course the owners are Indian and speak with very thick accents, but because we are experienced Indian cuisine experts, we knew just what to order. If you've never had Indian food, please take my word for it and eat at an Indian restaurant as soon as you can. If you're anywhere near Wine Country Temecula, just north of San Diego, do yourself a favor and stop in. I guarantee you'll like the food.

The best steak restaurant in Dallas - Ft. Worth

My favorite Dallas - Ft. Worth steak restaurant is Cattlemens. Great steak is an American tradition. Of course everyone has their favorites steak restaurant for different reasons. I like Cattlemens in Dallas - Ft. Worth because their steaks are incredibly tender and affordable.

Cattlemens is located on the edge of the Ft. Worth stockyards. Come on people, can you actually get steak that is fresher than that! I don't think so. Cattlemens is not a fancy restaurant. It is for good ole boys and gals who want some great grub!

Don't order your steak medium well or well done either, unless you want to get kicked out of the place! Click here to visit Cattlemen's web site. You can also order their great steaks on-line if you are planning a trip to Texas any time soon.

Chicago Tourist Attraction that’s a Homerun

In a near north neighborhood in Chicago sits one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Its been there since 1914. Of course I’m referring to Wrigley Field. Home of the Chicago Cubs since 1916. Ironically, the Cubs have not won the World Series since they made Wrigley Field their home. Up until 1988, they didn’t even have lights. All the games had to be day games, the way God had originally meant baseball to be played. I spent many days sitting in the left field bleachers watching my beloved Cubbies lose game after game. But it didn’t matter because you were at Wrigley Field and that made it OK. Sitting in the sun, drinking beer and watching major league baseball players like Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, then later, Sammy Sosa and Kerry Wood. Tickets are a little harder to come by now but if you really want a chance to experience what real baseball is in a real baseball stadium, look no further than Wrigley Field.

The Boardwalk, a New Jersey Tourist Attraction

If you are on the east coast anywhere near Atlantic City, New Jersey, check out a real New Jersey Tourist Attraction, the Atlantic City Boardwalk. To give you some perspective it is basically a year round carnival on the water. There are things for people of all ages. There are the typical carnival things such as games, rides and food. However, at the Boardwalk, you will probably spend half of your time people watching. Let me tell you ther are some interesting folks that like to cruise around this place. It is a little hard to explain, but trust me once you've been there you would get my point. The thing I like the best is the carnival food. Not that it is that great, but it is the stuff you only get at these typs of locations. This would be a fun day trip, but I would leave this place by susnset. I don't think it is the safest. However, during the day it has all the sights, fun, ride and food. I think it is definitly worth a short drive to spend the afternoon at this carnival on the ocean front. This message brought to you by United States Tourist Attractions.
