Enjoy tours and activities in Ashville and the Smoky Mountains

buy cheap online viagra

The Smoky Mountains are a subrange of the Appalachian Mountains, and form part of Blue Ridge. “Smoky” derives from the natural fog that often hangs over the range, most common in the morning and after rainfall, and is the result of warm humid air from the Gulf of Mexico cooling rapidly in the higher mountain elevations. From rogue desperados to Art Deco architects, Asheville and the Smoky Mountains offer a wealth of beautiful scenery, activities, and a lofty new perspective to the adventurous traveler.

Coming to the mountains is one of the authentic experiences in life, like going to the sea. It brings you closer to nature, and to yourself. Hit the trails for a full day of fun exploring Chimney Rock ParkThe Park features more than 3.5 miles of nature trails. Here, you’ll have an opportunity to see rare and indigenous plants, unusual geological formations and a variety of native wildlife. The trails range in difficulty from easy to strenuous. Whether you want a leisurely stroll, a challenging hike or something fun and interactive for the kids, Chimney Rock Park has the perfect trail for you. Most trails are open all year, weather permitting. From unique geological formations to sweeping views, you’ll find the best of the mountains in one place at Chimney Rock Park.

Being outdoors – in nature – nourishes the soul. There’s no better way to take the plunge than Whitewater RaftingOne of the world’s oldest rivers, the French Broad winds through Pisgah National Forest in the mountains of North Carolina. The whitewater section, located near Walnut, N.C., is convenient to Asheville, a popular destination, as well as Hot Springs, a charming mountain town. Class II-III French Broad rafting offers families a perfect introduction to whitewater. The French Broad trip offers raft and duck (inflatable kayaks) options, depending on water levels. Our full day trip include a picnic lunch and eight miles of rafting!

The Brave of Spirit may also venture upon the Asheville Haunted Ghost Tour. Join us as we take a leisurely stroll and search along the shadowy streets of downtown Asheville, to hear stories of the unexplained and the strange. Hear about haunted buildings in the downtown area, about a brutal murder that occurred here and the young victim that still haunts the building it occurred in. Learn about the old county jail where six legal hangings and several lynchings occurred and how those spirits terrorized the inmates and jailors one night. Listen to a true and bizarre story that started in Asheville and concluded in Florida, and much more.

For more activities and fun things to do, visit us at Smoky Mountains Tours. From dinner cruises to architectural tours to hiking adventures to acrobat shows, we really do have it all.

Holiday

nolvadex for men

G’day Mates, and Happy Holidays from Reserve123 and Australia Tours! With Christmas and the Holidays right around the corner, we think there’s no better way to spend it than Down Under enjoying the warm summer sunshine with Kangaroos and Penguins! Give yourself the gift of awesome Ausie-style fun in the sun and some of the world’s most incredible sightseeing tours and activities.

Christmas Koala

Christmas Koala

Christmas in Australia is celebrated a little differently – instead of being snowed-in in a crowded house or cabin trapped with relatives you don’t even really like that much, imagine the warm summer weather, exotic sightseeing activities, and fantastic beach excursions! And yes, Australia does also celebrate with Christmas Trees, Father Christmas, Christmas Carols, and gifts shared with loved ones. But Christmas Dinner might be a lovely picnic on the beach, or a delicious barbecue in the backyard, or out on the town with family & friends. Champagne is the traditional beverage instead of eggnog. That sounds like a Very Merry Christmas to me!! :)

Carols by Candlelight

Carols By Candlelight is one of the biggest events of the season. This began in Melbourne in 1937 and are outside concerts in the evenings. Most towns have a concert and two major ones are televised across Australia from Sydney and Melbourne. Adding to the magic of the evening is the spectacular sight of the Sidney Myer Music Bowl transformed into a visual masterpiece, as thousands of candles light up the night sky. An array of top entertainers performing a mix of the season’s favourite contemporary and traditional carols is sure to delight the whole family!

Visit Hunter Valley Gardens

Hunter Valley Gardens

Some of our tours I would recommend are our Hunter Valley Wineries & Gardens Lunch Tour from Sydney Australia. World acclaimed Australian wines from the vineyards of the rolling hills and valleys of the Hunter region, delight both the palate and the eye in this green and fertile land dotted with villages and over fifty wineries. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon at the awe inspiring Hunter Valley Gardens and wander throughout 12 spectacular themed gardens spanning over 25 hectares. Experience a stimulating journey through the magnificent displays, colours and delicate scents.

Healesville Sanctuary

Healesville Sanctuary Wildlife Park

You might also enjoy visiting the Healesville Sanctuary Wildlife Park near Melbourne. Healesville Sanctuary, Australia’s premier wildlife park is nestled in the foothills of the Yarra Valley, just one hour from Melbourne. Showcasing over 200 species of Australian wildlife, the lovely park is renowned as the best place to view Australian wildlife in their natural habitat. The Sanctuary features large walk-through habitat exhibits, flight aviaries and nocturnal exhibits that are well displayed to show the wonderful natural behaviour of Australian wildlife. You can also see the Australian Wildlife Health Centre, a working veterinary hospital offering uninhibited views into the journey of animal rescue, rehabilitation and release.

Playing with Heavy Machinery in Las Vegas

Monday, November 14th, 2011

TripMama

Probably the happiest man driving over a mound of dirt

viagra online drugstore

As children, the world was one giant sandbox to play in. There were no worries about bills, monthly reports, or morning traffic. The biggest worry you may have had was to figure out which lunchable you wanted to bring to lunch. We can’t promise you that we’ll take all your adult responsibilities away, but we can help you find a bigger sandbox.

Welcome to Las Vegas’s heavy equipment playground. These two activities will let your operate a 315 excavator, or in ‘Kris terms’, a metal brontosaurus, or a D5G bulldozer. The novelty of shoveling mass amounts of dirt into a pile does get a bit tiresome, so they made activities that will challenge you with various exercises that deal with moving dirt and heavy objects.

One of  the exercises

One of the exercises you’ll get to do

Before you get to jump in one of these babies, there’s a classroom safety and equipment orientation. After you’re given your hardhat, you continue with your training in an in-cab orientation. With a two way headset, you perform a couple of warm ups. Now, it’s time for the Big Dig! You carry out various exercises and strut your stuff with one major dirt excavation and two hand-eye coordination and agility exercises.

When all is said and done, you bring home a very official Certificate of Accomplishment to hang on the wall, refrigerator, hallway, or even in your office. ;) If you’re heading to Las Vegas and the casinos are becoming a bit too cliché, come out and relive your childhood… sans the Velcro shoes.

San Francisco is one of the most amazing cities in the world.However, it is hardly undiscovered.For that reason, many things in San Francisco are very pricey.This short list contains five ideas to keep you entertained without breaking the bank.

1.Explore Chinatown, shop for gifts along Grant Street, and watch them make fortune cookies on Ross Alley.In Chinatown, there is a lot to see and do.For one thing, Grant Street is completely lined with stores that carry everything from gag gifts and random imported items to authentic Chinese antiques.There truly is something for everybody, and in most cases you can find wonderful gifts for your friends and family at very affordable prices.If you don’t feel like spending any money, there is plenty of window shopping to enjoy.There are also bars, restaurants, bakeries, and other unique places to visit.If you like what you see, and wish to take a guided tour of the area, please consider http://www.SanFranciscoTours.us.

2.Spend an afternoon at Ocean Beach, check out the Sutro Baths and take a hike on one of the many trails.Ocean Beach is a great place to relax in the sun, throw a Frisbee, or walk along the waterfront.The Sutro Baths, which were once a large privately owned swimming pool complex that burned down in 1966, can still be explored via trails and paths through the ruins.If you are really lucky, you might find the Camera Obscura open at the new Cliff House.Look for it.

3.Walking along the Embarcadero is another great way to spend a day.There are many attractions to admire along the way.Start at AT&T Park, walk under the Bay Bridge, view the Ray Gun Gothic Rocket Ship (http://www.raygungothicrocket.com/) at Pier 14, eat at the Ferry Building (Farmer’s Market on Tues, Thurs, and Sat), explore the many attractions at Pier 39, visit Musee Mechanique at Pier 45, and much more.There is so much more to see that I am not listing, but you can use this as a rough road map/guide to help you start exploring this portion of the city.

5.Explore the Public Open Spaces that San Francisco has to offer.Many people are not aware, but a new law was put into place in 1985 that required all new commercial buildings allocate at least 1 square foot of open space for the public for every 35 square feet of commercial space.Because of this law, there are many buildings around the city that offer interesting spaces that you can enjoy.Some are on top of the buildings, and others are courtyards.Here is a good article to get you started on your hunt: http://bit.ly/cut7ER

So many human transporters…I mean Segways!

Sightseeing Group on Segways

Sightseeing Group on Segways

It is true.  Segways have become a staple activity in most major tourist destinations around the globe.  We are adding segway tours to our sites like they are going out of style, but let’s hope they don’t!  Truthfully, it is not likely since production of these machines has substantially increased in recent years.

Most recently, we added Segway options in Toronto, San Francisco, Miami, and Lisbon, Portugal.  We are currently exploring numerous international destinations, as well as a handful of ‘missing’ domestic locations.  A few other popular cities with Segways for hire include: Chicago, Washington DC, Atlanta, San Diego, Paris, Rome, and Sydney.  For a complete list of over 55 (and growing) segway tours that we offer, please visit Reserve123.

What is a Segway?

A Segway is a self-balancing electric vehicle that features two wheels.  It was invented by a man named Dean Kamen, and is produced in the United States.  The name “Segway” is a homophone of the word “segue”, which means a smooth transition.  When you lean forward, the device moves forward.  When you lean back, it brakes and ultimately goes backwards.  Turning is simple when you use the “leaning steering wheel”, and the top speed is around 12.5 MPH.  As you can imagine by the name, they are smooooth.  Like buttah!

Riding a Segway is quite a unique experience.  When you factor in the fact that they are green friendly (they are 100% electric), you don’t have to feel at all guilty as you glide around your destination.  Riding the Segway is fun in and of itself.  Throw in some new and exciting scenery, and you have a winning combination for sure.
