Re: Visitor Totals: The "Ears" Eat the "Apple"

Interesting piece, Paul. I believe that both are actually drawing more people than Paris (France) is as well. I don't see much of an overlap in the target populations these cities draw from. Orlando is very clearly family-oriented, with multiple theme parks. More of a budget destination, although with admissions at the parks being what they are, not that cheap anymore. New York City a big cosmopolitan attraction. Most folks would consider it too expensive for "family travel".

I think Orlando is a big pull for overseas travelers as well, which bodes well for them. Length of stay is an issue, especially, for New York; I think we get people on a shorter stay because of the cost. For overseas travelers, I think NY and Orlando are often both on the agenda, based on the questions I used to see on other boards!

Planning Your Next Trip to SoCal

A singer/songwriter named Bethany Cosentino, the vocalist half of the duo Best Coast, writes in a song called The Only Place: “Why would you live anywhere else / We’ve got the ocean, got the babes / Got the sun, we’ve got the waves / This is the only place for me.” It’s a catchy song, and she echoes the sentiments of the Beach Boys and many other musicians and writers who sang and wrote about The Golden State. While your reasons for why you’d actually live anywhere else might vary, we would...

Re: South Beach Miami - A walk through Art Deco History

Travel Rob ·
Jonathan, you did a fantastic job at showing South Beach! It really lives up to it's hype. One thing I love about Miami is Downtown,South Beach and the Airport are all an easy drive from each other. I'm curious too about your impressions of Downtown? It's experiencing one of the biggest construction booms in the country. Paul, say it ain't so that your not a fan of Florida!It's like California in the fact that the state is very diverse .You can love parts of the state and dislike others.

Quite a renaissance since I was last there in 1970, working in Bal Harbour. At that time no one I knew ventured south of the Fontainebleau. It's wonderful to see.

Re: South Beach Miami - A walk through Art Deco History

I didn't get to Downtown this time. The last time I was there (about 6 years ago) I was not really impressed. The overhead highway made the area feel dingy (thank you "urban renewal"). There is an art museum downtown that I remember liking (The Perez Art museum, I think). The thing is, it was right in the heart of the 2008/10 crash and almost all construction in south FL had come to a screeching halt. Entire buildings were empty. So what is there now is not what I would have seen then.

With so much disinformation and plain ignorance about our recent history, it can sometimes takes a harrowing experience to bring home the scale of man's inhumanity to man. And to remember it didn't start this way, but with small injustices and prejudices that dehumanise some scapegoated section of society. Beware weasel words.
