Off To the Races

In continuation of my last blog about the Great American Steamboat Company’s river cruises, I thought I would mention a couple of their themed cruises. First up is the Kentucky Derby 4-night river cruise. If you’ve ever dreamed of going to the Derby this is a great opportunity to do it. Included in the all-inclusive price of the cruise fare is general admission to the Derby itself. Or if you’d rather, you can join the Derby party at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel. Premium box seating is available for extra and is limited.

If you are a Civil War history buff you have a couple of different cruises to choose from. You’ll visit battlefields and if you are on the Epic Civil War cruise there will be impersonators, guest lectures and reenactments all included giving you an immersive historical vacation.

There are quite a few different cruises to choose from that will let you experience southern hospitality onboard a luxurious Victorian steamboat. Nightly entertainment in the Grand Saloon, which is a replica of Ford’s Theatre, and cuisine from an award winning chef, will make this a cruise to remember.


Let’s Explore

There are a lot of reasons people travel. Some just want to sit on the beach and do nothing, they need to unwind. Some want adventure and look for new mountains to climb. And some are looking to experience the past and find out how others lived before. I bet you can guess which one this blog is about.

When you go on vacation how do you spend your time? Are you interested in history, books and culture? Have you always wanted to stand in the shadows of the pyramids or explore castles that are hundreds of years old? If you are like me then you answered yes to these questions.

There are so many historical places worth visiting and different ways of getting to them. Together we can explore them. So let’s talk about travel and books, historical fiction is what I like to read. Let’s take a look at cities that are all about today and the future, but have so much of the past to offer. I hope you will join me as I write about these things and probably a few other topics as they come up.
