Spiderman – Turn off the Dark is the most expensive musical ever made. It had some technical issues when it opened (flying sequences didn’t go to plan), however it has become one of the most popular shows on Broadway.
You can’t go to the US without visiting Las Vegas.
Vegas is like a crazy world of its own. I have visited once and found it to be really fun. While there are lots of Casinos, the people who live there are really genuine. So I am definitely looking forward to going back.
We have also purchased some tickets to via Groupon to Eli Roth’s Goretorium, which is a year round haunted house. I have to admit – it looks pretty scary and I don’t scare easy! I also like that they do weddings. It would certainly be an interesting way to tie the knot.
We have also decided to break the drive in Virginia City which is a fantastic historic mining town. We may even be lucky enough to stay in a haunted hotel.
We are spending quite a bit of time in Arizona.
We are staying for several days in Winslow. (As in the Eagles were “Standing on the Corner in Winslow, Arizona”). Winslow was part of the original route 66 and has some great attractions like the Old Trails Museum.
We are also staying in the amazing La Posada Hotel, which is a an historical masterpiece.
Chris has set his first novel, Arizona Afterwards, in Winslow Arizona. He is looking forward to seeing the places he has written about.
I have been to California several times and really love it.
In particular I love Disneyland Resort. We are staying at Anaheim Camelot In & Suites which is very close to the park. I think you need to be pretty close by so you can pop back to your room if it gets too hot or too busy. I am really excited to see the new area, Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park. I have always liked California Adventure, it has a good vibe and some great rides, like Soarin’ Over California.
The Creation Museumis a vast, high-production museum with a rather bizarre scientific principle. It is a state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum which brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.
Chris is going to see if he can get a discount with his science museum ID card …
Looking forward to seeing a range of cultural sites while in Oklahoma, primarily in Tahlequah. Tahlequah has the distinction of being the capital of both The Cherokee Nation and The United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. There is the Cherokee National Museum and several other sites around the town of interest.
