CA To NV To NM Road Trip: Explore Extraterrestrial Highway PDF Print E-mail

The popular road winds 1,777 miles from California, thru Nevada and ends in New Mexico.  Be sure to visit Area 51 and Roswell, where there have been many alleged sightings of space aliens since the 1950s. And if Donald Trump had been president then, they would’ve been deported immediately, along with their undocumented alien anchor babies.

Choose From Variety Of Hollywood Air & Ground Tours PDF Print E-mail

When in the movie capital, you can do just a modest hike along Hollywood Boulevard for free. Except, of course, when you stop to do selfies with one of the costumed characters. Bus and helicopter tours cost $10 and up, depending on length of time and distances covered.

Some include stops at mansions of vintage movie stars, notorious crime scenes and haunted houses. So, don’t forget your selfie stick. For more info, go to www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g32655-Activities-c42-Los_Angeles_California

Is Las Vegas Haunted By Yesterday’s Superstars? PDF Print E-mail

Your travel4seniors.com editor is very old, and just maybe ready for a visit with Dr. Alzheimer. However, on visits to Sin City, I want to believe I see or hear famous entertainers. And for free!

The best location for the ghostly experiences are the Fountains of Bellagio. They’re 1,200 water spouts in Lake Bellagio in front of the resort. They send water soaring as high as 460 feet into the Vegas sky. Current examples include Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," Faith Hill's "This Kiss" and Elton John's "Your Song.”

However, my fave is Sinatra singing “Luck Be A Lady”. As I stroll along at night by the Bellagio waters, his great classic bursts out of dozens of hidden speakers. Then I know I'm not walking alone.

Washington DC: Museum Of The Bible Is Worth A Visit PDF Print E-mail

Located at 400 4th Street SW, the museum offers classic religious art, literature collections, scheduled programs, music concerts and other events. For ticket and other info, go to www.museumofthebible.org

San Francisco CA: Beautiful City Of Long-Ago Memories PDF Print E-mail

It maybe was a bit spoiled by the hippie movement in the 1950s and by today’s homeless wanderers. However, your travel4seniors.com editor believes it’s still one of the world’s greatest travel destinations. My memories go way, way back to the 1940s as a teenage Navy sailor, the City By The Bay was a most welcome sight when I returned from World War 2 Pacific campaigns.

And they’re all still there today: The Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Chinatown dining, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf and Nob Hill. No wonder Tony Bennett left his heart there. When planning your next senior travels, consider putting San Francisco on your must-visit list. You’ll take home your own timeless memories.
