Fort Worth's Coyote Drive-In in 'Nostalgia Front & Center in Some U.S. Museums & Eateries'

Louis Kaplan is channeling his childhood.  While a youngster, he collected baseball cards which he stored in boxes and treasured as souvenirs of the USA's favorite pastime.  Decades later, he’s reliving that time while visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, upstate New York.  Opportunities to recapture memories from the past are of course not limited to baseball, nor to New York.

  • The world's newest theme park has opened east of Nagoya City, Japan - by train, less than two hours north of Tokyo and less than an hour from Osaka and Kyoto. But Ghibli Park is fairly narrow in its focus on the animated movies and series of Ghibli Studios, and it has no rides, but is rather a 17½-acre indoor indoor "town" filled with streets, exhibits and famous scenes from Studio Ghibli's films including Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, and Castle in the Sky.
