Avoid Expensive Airport Parking When Flying Round Trip PDF Print E-mail

The costs now keep going up. In olden days you paid $10 daily to leave your car at the airport garage while you flew away and returned. Now, daily charges, especially at major airports such as JFK and LAX, can be $40 and up. So, if you spend two weeks on business, touring or visiting relatives, expect to add at least another $560 to your travel costs.

You can avoid the heavy charges and airport hassles of the busy parking garage by going from home to the airport by train, bus, taxi, Lyft or Uber. It may cost $100 total for the round trip, but your wallet and nervous system will thank you for the decision.

Pot Museum: As If Las Vegas Isn’t Self-Destructive Enough PDF Print E-mail

Gambling, booze, buffets. Sin City’s aim, in addition to relieving you of all your money, seems to be to help shorten your life. No sleep for hours in smoke-choked casinos, unlimited booze and stuffing your gut at lard-loaded buffets. All guaranteed to kill you before surviving those three score years and ten.

Now, Sin City visitors who wish to spend a smoky shortened life, can go downtown to Fremont Street and visit Cannabition. Marijuana has been legal in Nevada since 2017, so museum visitors can indulge in all kinds of cannabis history, products and paraphernalia.

Stockbridge, MA: Enjoy Norman Rockwell Museum Exhibit
 PDF Print E-mail

With a BFA from the Philadelphia Museum College of Art, your travel4seniors.com editor is very opinionated about art. Illustrators are the real, honestly traditional artists. I’ve admired Rockwell since student days. I believe in traditional art skills, not random paint splashes nor copies of photos printed on canvas.

The Stockbridge exhibit, which runs through October 28, will also feature his traditional contemporaries Maxfield Parrish and N.C. Wyeth. Featured are more than 60 works and 300 digital representations. For more info, go to www.nrm.org
