Despite its daunting monolithic feel, Manhattan is really a patchwork of neighborhoods with storied histories.  Some are gentrified to trendy and glam.  Others are true gems: vibrant, multicultural neighborhoods whose color and texture have been defined by waves of immigrants from all parts of the world who began arriving as far back as the mid-1800s.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not Coupon NYC Times Square

Ripleys Believe It Or Not Robot

What is Ripley’s, really?  It’s a museum without rhyme nor reason, a sideshow, a celebration of the truly weird.  It’s a walk into the unexpected; an encounter with the eccentric.  It’s at once strange and amusing.  This is why Ripley calls itself an “odditorium.”

Robert Ripley was an eccentric.  He was cartoonist, entrepreneur, collector of the odd and exotic, amateur anthropologist, entertainer and master self-marketer.  Until his death in 1949, he spent years traveling the globe in search of one-of-a-kind, unbelievable and inexplicable facts, artifacts and oddities of people, animals and things.  He was a collector of curios. The “Unbelievable Mr. Ripley” used these as a basis for his wildly popular syndicated newspaper cartoons, and radio and TV shows.  Today, much of his collection and more are presented in 32 Ripley’s Believe It or Not Odditoriums.  This one in New York City Times Square is the largest. Twenty exhibits, many interactive, cover two floors. For a limited time, you can save money by purchasing tickets online with Trusted Tours and using our exclusive Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Coupon.

Set aside a full day for the Catalina Island Day Trip and use the special coupon at the end of this article.  You’ll be glad you did.

My island adventure, which I took with friends, began with an early morning shuttle ride, provided by Southern California Gray Line, from our hotel to Long Beach Harbor.  We arrived in ample time to board the sleek Catalina Express and get comfortably situated for the 9:45am departure.  While there is inside seating, it was a nice day so we opted for outside upper deck seating for the 1-hour ferry ride.  Skimming across the open water of Catalina Channel on the fast, smooth 22-mile ride was a thrill!  As the rocky cliff outcroppings plunging down into the aquamarine waters came into view, excitement grew.

The island is a world apart from the bustle and bling of the mainland.  Crystalline waters, breath-taking scenery and the quaint charm of Avalon, the island’s only “city,” make this a sought-after destination.  It’s busy, but not congested.  There’s plenty of open space to spread out as 89% of the island is protected, thereby retaining its natural beauty.

Presidential Sites – Places of Politics, Policies and Legacies

Category: Misc. Thoughts   Published by

As the end of this contentious, seemingly never-ending, presidential election year nears, one wonders what drives these particular Americans to seek the presidency. Who are they, and why do they run? They are, after all, Everyman.

For insight, look no further than to those who have come before them.  Visit a Presidential Historic Site.  What you’ll find depends on the era, and the president. All former presidents have at least one, with the exception of Zachary Taylor, who has none. Abraham Lincoln has six, the most by far.

A presidential site can be a birthplace, homestead, residence, museum, or library.  Some are thought-provoking in their sheer simplicity; others are Disney-esque complexes designed to dazzle and engage through multimedia presentations, interactive displays, and full-size replicas of Oval Offices. One even has a real Air Force One! Some are cold; others vibrant. Regardless of style, they are a snapshot of the American presidency at a moment in time and provide a sense of the individuals who aspired to, and reached, the pinnacle of power.
