Cincinnati: A Hot Year-Round Travel Destination

by Greg Seiter on October 28, 2013

Even after the season’s final pitch has been thrown and the Great American Ballpark’s last hot dog and bag of peanuts have been sold, there’s much to do, see, and experience during a weekend getaway to Cincinnati. A Major League Baseball-crazed southwestern Ohio city that’s inviting, no matter the time of year, Cincinnati is also […]

Lions, tigers, bears and many other creatures reside at New York’s Bronx Zoo, the largest urban zoo in the United States. In fact, thousands of birds, mammals, reptiles and primates can be found throughout the facility’s 265 acres of park lands and natural habitats. Bronx Zoo visitors have plenty choices of what to see, both […]


You don’t have to be an athlete or even a sports fan, for that matter, to enjoy the NCAA Hall of Champions in Indianapolis. Located on the west side of the city’s downtown area, the Hall, which pays tribute to athletic, academic and character-related accomplishments by individual student-athletes, teams, coaches and administrators, is part of […]


Reach for the Sky at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium

by Greg Seiter on June 11, 2012

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by space travel, our solar system and the ongoing public debate over whether or not our human race is actually alone in the universe. While that question, in particular, wasn’t necessarily answered during my visit to Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, I did get a new-found appreciation for […]


Chicago’s Ed Debevic’s Says: Eat and Get Out

by Greg Seiter on April 18, 2012

I couldn’t help but laugh as I stared at the faded turquoise and creme-colored building and its equally obscure signage. Near the red awning that shades the main entrance to Ed Debevic’s in Chicago, the words “Get in here” are clearly visible on what appears to be a chimney-like structure. On the side of the […]


Concrete typically doesn’t excite me, but when I’m in Las Vegas all bets are off. There’s nothing unusual about the concrete in Sin City, it’s all around you.  But for an equally impressive look at concrete head out to Hoover Dam, about 30 minutes away.  This National Historic Landmark has nary a neon light or […]


A Traveling Tribute to the King of Pop

by Greg Seiter on March 6, 2012

Picture a quick-hit combination of elaborate costumes, stunning visual effects, impressive acrobatics, 1980s style dancing and music made popular by the late Michael Jackson and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect in Cirque du Soleil’s traveling tribute to the King of Pop – Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour. I saw the […]


Approximately one hour south of Indianapolis and easily accessible by State Road 135, Nashville, a town that has no mail delivery, is a surprising hub of activity. As the only incorporated town in an area known as Brown County, it is frequently referred to as the “Artist Colony of the Midwest,” because hundreds of craft, specialty and antique shops can […]


Las Vegas: Viva ELVIS Will be Leaving the Building

by Greg Seiter on December 6, 2011

34 years after his death in 1977, Las Vegas is still paying homage to Elvis.  In 1963, Elvis Aron Presley spent several weeks in Las Vegas filming the movie “Viva Las Vegas,” and was well on his way to having his name synonymous with the city. A fitting tribute, Viva Elvis, has been playing at Aria Resort […]

Blue Man Group at Universal Orlando

by Greg Seiter on November 17, 2011

From live musical performances to stunt-heavy productions, Universal Orlando is home to a variety of shows but in my mind, there’s one in particular that stands out. The Blue Man Group show at Universal CityWalk is a one-hour and 45 minute production that focuses on the theatrical antics of three bald, enigmatic characters who entertain their […]
