Palm Springs is known for its Desert Resorts, Coachella, and Son Bono. Hollywood stars and socialites from Los Angeles travel two hours to soak in the desert sun and splash in hotel pool parties. But what if you wanted to do something different than the same ole Palm Springs Scene? What if you wanted to go on a road trip to visit something so unique and strange you wouldn’t think you were in America anymore. That is where the Salton Sea and Salvation Mountain comes into play.
In New Orleans, we have two seasons: hot and two days of cold. New Orleans weather is one reason why I love going to exciting places like taking Amtrack’s Adirondack train from New York to Montreal. If you are like me and the leaves turn from green to brown in your hometown you need to start planning your fall foliage trip!
Earlier this week, mom and I boarded a plane to Atlanta, so we could drive to Nashville to watch the Great American Eclipse in Clarksville, Tennessee. Having never seen an eclipse, the last one was February 26, 1979, and the fact that August 21 is my mother’s birthday, we thought this would be the best way to celebrate!
August 21, 2017, is the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse will travel coast to coast across the United States of America. This rare phenomenon is causing Monday, August 21 to be one of the highest days people are taking off from work and school to travel to see the Great American Solar Eclipse.
My family loves road trips! We try to take a road trip every so often to drive out to the outlets in Baton Rouge or Gulfport so when we decided we were going to make a major road trip to visit some sites as part of the National Park service!
