Friday, August 16th, 2013

nashville homeFor those of us who consider ourselves pop culture connoisseurs, the Homes of the Stars Tour in Nashville is a definite must.  This driving tour gives travelers the opportunity to drive through some of the most elite neighborhoods that many popular country music stars call home.

Many country stars live in this great city, including a personal favorite, Martina McBride. This tour allows passengers to see her house as well as the homes of Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, and Trisha Yearwood.  The people of America have become so intrigued by the lives of today’s celebrities, and this tour satisfies that desire to take a closer look into the lives of the icons of generations past and present. 

Luckily, this tour includes free hotel pick-up, so there’s no need to pull yourself out of crazy fan mode to concentrate on driving back to the hotel. This tour should make anyone’s short list while they are in Nashville. It’s only about three hours long, but it covers much ground so you definitely don’t want to miss it!

Grand Canyon Railway Adventures

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Visitors to Arizona and the surrounding area, climb aboard the Grand Canyon Train for a unique look at the famous Grand Canyon.   There are several ways that you can spend your time in the area, including a one or two night getaway or a similar sightseeing package for one, two, or three nights.

Should you decide on the one-night getaway package, you will enjoy dinner and breakfast as well as a one night stay at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel in Williams.  You can either arrive in Williams the night before your trip or you can opt for the one-night getback package and use your hotel stay after you return from the Grand Canyon.  The choice is yours.  During your time in Williams, you can get out on your own and walk along historic Route 66 to check out some of the distinctive restaurants and other sites along the highway.  In the morning, you will dig into a delicious breakfast before getting on your way.  About a half hour before your departure time, you can catch an entertaining gunfight show that is not to be missed.

Your train trip will take just over two hours, and you will take the same rail line that was developed over a century ago.  With all the fiddlers, guitarists, and gunfighters on board the train to keep you amused, the time will go by in a snap.  Once you reach your destination, you have a few options to choose from.  You can either take the three hour time slot and discover the wonders of the Canyon on your own, or you can choose from two narrated motorcoach rim tours, which can easily be added onto your ticket.  Lunch is included in these tours, and once you have seen the area you may decide to stay overnight.  The Grand Canyon Railway offers overnight accommodation in Grand Canyon National Park at the Maswik Lodge.  This is a great experience for those who have never been to the Canyon before, and you can wake up in the morning to watch the sun rise over the tremendous red rocks.  If you decide to forego the overnight stay at the Lodge, you will board the train back to Williams in the afternoon.
