Have you ever stopped at a gas station and ask “if they knew a good place near by to eat?”. Have you ever been to a city and had time but nothing to do? We just spent a week in Anchorage Alaska, we had a few appointments that we needed to take care of. While there we stayed in a hotel, ate our meals out everyday. This is my plug for “trip advisor”. We have contributed info on places we stayed, visited, liked and didn’t like. You know what, many people have read our reviews and some said they helped. So I just finished some of the reviews this last week. To see what we thought of Anchorage or where we went, please conduct a search on “trip advisor” for scspeights. You’ll see some recents and some older reviews. Reviews from Washington DC, Washington, Colorado And California. My point is, people enjoy going places other have enjoyed. People like to eat at places that provide good service and food. So if you have never been a critic, take a trip then leave a review. Or you can start out by critiquing places in your hometown or neighborhood.
Someone recently asked me to make a short video about Ketchikan Alaska about a minute or two. This is what I came up with. Hope you like it and feel like visiting SE Alaska sometime.
So recently visited “Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl” in Colorado Springs CO. It was a fun place and a nice atmosphere. Guess it’s owned by BassPro sporting goods store. Also heard that they have them in various places across the states.
Very fun and friendly for families with kids, or just a nice place to hang out at. Also check out Groupon to possibly find deals or specials.
Arlington National Cementary…Most Americans know the name, so few have actually been there. My wife and I went there a few years ago, I had no idea how huge it really was. Me trying to be cheap and save a few bucks decided against the tour (and tour bus) and figured we could walk it. If you ever go TAKE THE BUS ! We walked and walked and walked. It’s not a flat place either, it is all very hilly.
Of course if you do go there you also must stay for the changing of the guard and also President JFK’s memorial, both could bring a tear to one’s eyes.
This Memorial day take a visit to one of our nation’s National cemetaries if you can, if not then find a family that has lost someone while serving in the military and thank them.
