June 18, 1964, James Brock, the manager of the Monsoon Motor Lodge ( now destroyed) pouring acid on demonstrators attempting to desegregate the pool Great Piece Jonathan L! One thing I wish St Augustine would do a better job is telling what role St Augustine played in the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King got arrested in St Augustine on June 11th 1964 after picketing. His charge was unlawful assembly and civil disobedience. Many people say events that summer helped sparked the Civil...

Re: St. Augustine FL. - The Old City

Thanks Travel Rob. In fact there are several info boards in and around Plaza de la Constitucion that do discuss the civil rights era history. Not just MLK's arrest, but more than one large demonstration that took place.

There are info boards at the beaches too but certain things they didn't preserve, like the Monsoon Motor Lodge, now a Hilton. Martin Luther King Ave, Downtown is one street named after Dr. King where he had marched.

Hi Ava : ) You are going to love Krakow. The locals are very friendly, the scenery is beautiful, and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Enjoy your visit. I hope you share your adventures (along with pictures) with TravelGumbo upon your return...I (and our entire TravelGumbo family) would love to see them. By the way, if you have time, take a day to visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, and another day to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration/Extermination camps. Your best bet to see...

Thanks Ottoman! I'm really excited to hear all of the positive things about Krakow. We have already booked a tour at Auschwitz, but I don't know if we will have time to visit the salt mine (although it looks amazing). I'd be happy to share some photos.

Re: April 28, 2016: Main Square, Krakow, Poland

GarryRF ·
The Salt Mines are one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. It would be a shame to miss seeing them. When you are in town you will see this building. It's the Rail Station. The salt mines are just a few stops along the line. 10 minutes. So easy to find. So worth it.

In the main square, school children perform dances and theatre for passers by. Adults perform parades and fashion shows. During the summer when I was a visitor there was something on display most afternoons. Krakow is a beautiful city to walk around.
