Terranea - Los Angeles Has A New Resort

I just returned for the opening of a new resort in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area called the
Terranea. Built on the grounds of the old Marineland of the Pacific, the resort is a winner. With a wonderful Spa, fitness and wellness center, swimming pool for adults and children, the resort will be a "10" within a year.

The discovery trails were easy to walk. Take the Bluff Top Trail to the interpretive center and learn about the old Marineland and the Catalina Islands just west of the Terranea. I would wait until this fall before visiting the resort. All the opening bugs will be worked out and a new 5 star property is born!!!! When you are ready to book contact me. I have set up special amenities just for Walker Travel clients. Happy Traveling, DW

$99 Air Fares To Hawaii

QUESTION: Doug, where do you find $99 plus tax one way air fares to Hawaii?

ANSWER: These fares often appear for only a few hours. A group may cancel then an
airline dumps seats or the airline reservation system called (GDS) makes
a mistake.

Sign up on my email tree at and specify "last minute Hawaii fares"

Branson Missouri's New Airport

Diane and I just returned from the grand opening of Branson Missouri's new airport. The first major airport to be opened in the United States in 17 years. Now you can fly directly into Branson rather than Kanasas City or St. Louis. An airshow followed with the US Air Force Thunderbirds.

We enjoyed the Righteous Brother (Bill Medley) and Paul Revere & The Raiders concert. Great show. We talked to Paul after the show and he still claims to have recorded the song Louie, Louie first!
He is Idaho boy you know. The show was in the Andy Williams theater - good sounds.
