Lions, Tigers, and Gondolas at Two California Zoos

California History and Opulence at Hearst Castle

By Greg Aragon  William Randolph Hearst knew how to throw a party.

It’s Time for Tantalizing Ticino, Switzerland

By Greg Aragon I’ve been to the German and French speaking regions of Switzerland, but I have yet to visit the southern part of the country, near the Alps and the border of Italy, where Italian is spoken and a Mediterranean climate yields lush gardens, fine wines and a delicious variety of cuisine.

Summer Cruise Season is Here and Alaska is Calling

By Greg Aragon Summer is coming and the great white north is calling. In fact, if you listen closely you can almost hear roaring grizzly bears, splashing killer whales, rustling moose, and squawking bald eagles – all doing their best to attract tourists to share in the splendor of Alaska.

Waterfront Paradise in Marina del Rey

By Greg Aragon It’s hard to call a town with the world’s largest man-made marina a hidden gem, but in a way Marina Del Rey is just that. Located near the larger, more famous areas of Venice Beach and Santa Monica, the tiny city can easily be overlooked. But for savvy travelers from around the…
