Phoenix' Hotel San Carlos in 'Sleeping with History at 7 of the USA's most Historic Hotels'

Biansho/Dreamstime.com How would you like to spend a night or more at a hotel once frequented by Clark Gable, Ingrid Berman, Marilyn Monroe and a long list of other Tinseltown luminaries? Or snuggle down under the sheets at a former stagecoach stop along the famous Chisolm Trail which played host to George Custer, the cavalry commander in the Civil and American Indian Wars, and Jesse James, who needs no introduction? If luxury and elegance are your preference, how about the Hotel Du Pont in…

Wigwam Hotel in 'Spring Has Sprung & U.S. Gardens Await Discovery'

Spring is here, and summer's already around the corner!  If you’re a flower gardener - and the National Gardening Association estimates that members of over a third of U.S. households are - you already may have begun to till soil and plant seeds. And those who like to travel as well as garden (as well as those who enjoy gardens more by watching than working), now is time to plan a trip to take in some of Mother Nature’s bountiful beauty. Gardens come in a variety of types, sizes and offerings.…

Arizona experiences in 'Getting to Know the USA's Tribal Peoples'

Many of the Amerindian tribes that were already living here when the Europeans arrived are still part of the societies that evolved in the Western Hemisphere since that fateful event (in the USA they're usually referred to as Native Americans, but I prefer Canada's term First Nations, which I feel is more accurate since they, too, were not "native" - nor "indigenous"- but they were certainly first). And from New England to the desert Southwest, and South Florida to the Pacific Northwest, there…

  • A friend of mine got us tickets to the game on the 30th, which is the Reds vs. the Indians.  We'll be right behind the Reds dugout!  WOOHOO!!!!!

  • If you're ever in Arizona or Florida this time of year, I highly recommend taking in some of baseball's Spring Training. It's a good chance to get up close and personal with the sport's biggest stars. Today on the Fields of Dreams at The World on Wheels, we take you to the Texas Rangers facility in Surprise, Arizona - it's Surprise Stadium: http://tinyurl.com/yhmxy2w

  • A Tripatini member is looking for advice for a 3-day road trip out of Scottsdale - please reply at this link to Ask A Travel Pro. Thanks!!

  • At The World on Wheels, our southwest adventure continues. Not all of Arizona is desert. The pretty little mountain town we visit today was the filming location of such films as How the West Was Won, Billy Jack, Bless the Beasts and the Children, and Junior Bonner. It's got great and colorful western history and is home to Barry Goldwater's favorite bar. Come on along to Prescott, Arizona: http://tinyurl.com/2apgp87PrescottAZ.jpg?width=300
