TripAdvisor Lists Its Top American Museums....Not!


The travel site recently named ten in the US. However, they failed to name the absolute best. Inexcusably omitted from the list is the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Those named in the report were the Metropolitan, New York NY, WW2 Museum, New Orleans LA, Art Institute, Chicago IL, 9/11 Museum, New York NY,  USS Midway, San Diego CA, Smithsonian, Washington DC, Getty Center, Los Angeles CA, Museum of Natural History, Museum of Modern Art, both in New York NY, and Kennedy Space Center, Titusville FL.

OK, so they’re all great museums. However, not that I’m prejudiced, I just happen to be a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum College of Art, BFA ‘51. Of course, that was years before Rocky ran up the steps and did his victory dance.

Senior theater review: Old Blue Eyes Is Back, Sort of PDF Print E-mail

We don’t usually recommend specific entertainment performances, but we recently had the pleasure of attending a Las Vegas impersonator show called, “The Concert That Never Was”. We went reluctantly, because we’ve never been thrilled with fake stars, a feature in Las Vegas designed to drag money from seniors. You can’t go anywhere in Sin City without running into a pseudo Elvis hosting a supermarket promo, singing at a wedding chapel or crooning in a hotel bar lounge. Or a phony Madonna dealing blackjack, or a fake Dolly Parton serving drinks. All part of the glitzy Vegas scene, but who needs it?

Senior Travel Tip: Tour The British Isles In Springtime PDF Print E-mail

“O, to be in England now that April's there.” Poet Robert Browning wrote it a century or more ago, and it’s still a great idea for the springtime senior traveler. Since our retirement, we’ve made many pilgrimages to the British Isles. We've done in different ways: joined tour groups, roamed alone and spent two weeks doing bed and breakfast and sightseeing treks in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Even though we were already in our 70s, our best springtime adventure in Great Britain was when we went everywhere with just backpacks and no schedule.

Seniors Back in Classroom: Cooking School Session in Italy PDF Print E-mail

If you believe you’re never too old to learn something new, we have a great education/vacation idea for you. And you can do it this springtime in sunny Italy. We haven't done it yet, but drool in anticipation of following a young close family member who recently returned from a cooking vacation in Tuscany. She said she loved every minute of the experience, but felt a bit isolated because all the other students were women (and one man) in their 60s and 70s. That fact alone gave her elderly relatives even more encouragement to sign up for an upcoming session later this year.
