Take in the Sights on an Austin Carriage Ride

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

If you are making a visit to laid back Austin, Texas, the best way to get around town is on a scenic carriage ride.   There are several to choose from and depending on what you want to see and how long you have to devote to touring, you can have your pick at the four packages currently available.

If taking a peek at the exquisite architecture that lines the streets of the city piques your interest, the Historic Homes Carriage Tour is just right for you.  Along the way, you will visit one of the last Victorian blocks to remain nationwide, and there are more than ten 19th century homes lining this street.  You will also see the Governor’s Mansion and the Capitol Building on your travels.  If what you are seeking is a quiet and romantic ride with a loved one, you will get just that.  Alternatively, if you are looking for more of a guided and narrated ride, drivers are ready and willing to oblige.

The Grand Carriage Tour will take you down historic Congress Avenue where you will catch a glimpse of the largest and tallest Capitol in the US.  You will visit the Victorian block as well, on your way to check out some of the other hot spots in the area.  Ride along the Colorado River and pass through the famous entertainment district to get a taste of the talent and showmanship that exists throughout the city.

Other carriage rides in the area include the Capitol Carriage Tour and the Town Lake Carriage Ride.   If you decide, however, that a carriage ride will not make your short list, the Austin in 90 minutes Tour will provide you with a well-narrated sightseeing journey around Austin by van, with views and background on the UT Performing Arts Center, Austin City Limits, O. Henry Museum, Zilker Park, and much more.

Winter is the perfect time to consider a visit to sunny Austin.  While the temperatures dip down in these months, they are much milder than elsewhere, making it the ideal location for those who wish to warm up a little without stretching the budget and going international.

Tours and Activities in Lake Powell

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Lake Powell, a man-made reservoir on the Colorado River, straddles the border between Utah and Arizona. For those who haven’t been to the area, you will definitely want to make the trip.There are numerous activities to choose from when you visit Lake Powell, from the ever-popular Antelope Canyon Cruise to a Lake Powell Overnight Kayak & Camping Tour.Whether you are interested in a short activity to fit between previously planned stops or you are looking for a longer trip with overnight accommodation, you will find opportunities for both here.

Antelope Canyon Cruise

Antelope Canyon Cruise

The Antelope Canyon Cruise is an excellent way to see the amazing Antelope Canyon, one of the most magnificent sights in all of North America.It was formed by the flooding of Glen Canyon by the Glen Canyon Dam.Glen Canyon, which you will see towards the latter part of the cruise, was carved by differential erosion from the Colorado River over the course of an astonishing 5 million years.It cuts through the Colorado Plateau, which formed about 11 million years ago.Layers of rock – which formed anywhere from 300 million years ago to more recently as a result of volcanic activity – make up the enormity of the plateau.As you take a look around the area, you will see what happens when nature is left to its own devices.

For those looking to truly absorb the energy and attractiveness of the area, you will want to take the Lake Powell Overnight Kayak & Camping Tour.Enjoy all that Lake Powell has to offer as you arrive by motor boat and hike, kayak, and camp to see the splendor of the canyons and dams from up close.I recently took this tour and was taken aback by the immensity of the canyon walls and the beauty of the sparkling waters.It was a great way to get acquainted with the area before returning to the hustle and bustle of city life and was an experience that you can’t get from a traditional tour.If you are up for an adventure, don’t miss out on this trip!
