Many people have a “bucket list”, a list of things they want to do before they die, or “kick the bucket”. Don’t wait until it’s too late, give us a call today and we can help you book a trip anywhere in the country. Here are some of our favorite bucket list ideas:
- Catch a concert at Red Rocks: In addition to their famous summer concert series, Red Rocks Park is a beautiful area where the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains. According to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, the Red Rocks Amphitheatre is the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world. In 2017, you can see acts like Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, John Prine, Celtic Women, Umphrey’s McGee, and more.
- Mardi Gras, New Orleans: Parades start in January, so you have plenty of time to be part of the festivities. The hotels in the area begin booking rooms in August, so you need to make plans as soon as you can. Get your green, gold, and purple on and order your King Cake now!
- Lighthouses: Lighthouses hold a special place in many peoples’ hearts. Not only are they architecturally unique, they are usually in picturesque locations. There are lighthouses all over the country: The Great Lakes, New England, the Outer Banks, Oregon, and San Francisco are popular locations. You can go see certain famous locations or make a weekend or week out of it and see a series of lighthouses. The choice is up to you!
- Comic-Con: There are comic and movie conventions all over the country, but the granddaddy of them all is the San Diego Comic-Con International. This convention began in 1970 as a one-day event with two special guests and around 100 attendees. Now attendance is over 130,000 and takes place over several days with hundreds of vendors and programs.
- Sundance Film Festival: A unique opportunity to discover a new cinematic gem or up and coming director. Park City, UT hosts this film festival with movies from all over the world, created by rising stars and established talents. Rub elbows with celebrities and be on the cutting edge of the movie industry.
- Taste of Chicago: Since 1980, Grant Park in Chicago has been home to some of the best food in the Chicago area. Admission is free and includes concerts by artists like Carlos Santana and Stevie Wonder and other activities like cooking classes and demonstrations. Over 3 dozen restaurants are represented with over a million people attending the Taste of Chicago.
- Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: Just about everyone has seen the parade on TV, but can you imagine what it would be like to see it in person? Whimsical balloons flying overhead, festive floats slowly going by, electrifying marching bands and famous performers raising your pulse. A bonus is that you won’t have to listen to the corny jokes told by the announcers!
