Honolulu, HI: Oahu Kailua Beach Named Best In USA PDF Print E-mail

Who wouldn’t agree that this fantastic Hawaiian destination is the very best? Looking way back as a kid on the streets of Philly, I considered summertime Atlantic City, just an hour away by bus, the best beach anywhere.

Not only the warm sand and white-capped surf, it also had top entertainment at the Steel Pier. Young Frank Sinatra with the Tommy Dorsey Band, Dean Martin, Benny Goodman, Guy Lombardo, Dinah Shore and many others. For teenagers, there were romantic trysts under the Boardwalk, salt water taffy and 5¢ hot dogs and burgers. What’s your best beach memory?

Gatlinburg, TN: Scary Suspension Strolling Bridge Opens PDF Print E-mail

Just a few miles from Dollywood amusement park and about 40 miles southeast of Knoxville, the SkyBidge is now open for visitors. Touted as the longest pedestrian suspense bridge in the US, it spans nearly 700 feet, with the Great Smoky Mountains as a dramatic backdrop.

As a feature in the surrounding Skylift Park, the bridge has clear glass panels along the bottom of the walk for brave adventurers to see way down into the chasm. Costs range from 50¢ for a one-time crossing to $2.50 for an all-day pass.

Also available is a chairlift that goes up from Gatlinburg, across the bridge to the mountain top. Rides cost $15 for adults and $12 for kids. Incidentally, how many senior wanderers recall that this is the 50th anniversary of Bridge Over Troubled Water recorded by Simon and Garfunkel?
