Very good post. Looks like an interesting place. That's the beauty of getting negative opinions about someplace from others. You get to be pleasantly surprised when it turns out not to be so bad. For my wife and I it was Paris in the late 80s. So many people said how unpleasant it was. When we went there we had such a great time we extended our stay another 3 nights. We cannot wait to return again.

Great travel story! I'm also a fan of getting a little lost in most cities I try to visit. It's while wandering around not knowing where you are that your senses get more engaged and you take in so much more detail. Welcome to TravelGumbo. I want more!!!!

Back in the mid-1980's, I was traveling to Vermont to install a computer network for an Army Reserve Unit. I got to Lake George very late and decided to stop and sleepover. Unfortunately I was unaware that they host a motorcycle rally that draws over 50,000 people. The hotel manager where I stopped said the next available hotel with vacancy would be just outside of my destination, still a long drive away, so I had to keep going. I think the rally happens in June, so I assume you missed that...

No, that was for two. With some guilt, I admit that we finished it, and were served some extra scones as well. A luxurious afternoon, immediately preceded by a walking tour of Marx’s London, and followed by a long walk after to pay for the calories.

That Karl Marx gets more than his share of criticism. Very interesting read though. Did you know he fought to get a 12 month guarantee when you bought something new. Quite a novel idea at the time. Another Marxist ideology.

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...

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 Travel Luver I apologize for the lateness of this response. In answer to your question, I unfortunately did not see the monument lit up at night...my travel schedule didn't permit it. I too hope to go back to Mount Rushmore in the near future, primarily to see it lit up, for I have heard it is quite special, and the photos I have seen confirm that. When you make it back to Mount Rushmore, I hope you will share your adventures with us. Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it. Take care,...
