When you think of Las Vegas, the mind conjures up images not only of the casinos, skyscrapers and entertainment venues, but also wide expanses of Nevada desert and red-rock peaks silhouetted against the setting sun. In other words, it feels a bit like summer in the mind’s eye. Yet this destination continues to buzz even as winter falls. In fact, it thrives, given that many of the fun activities are based indoors –– and it's still pleasant outside anyway.
I am on a mission to get you traveling more often. As the host of the Emmy award- winning, nationally syndicated television television for PBS and the Create channel, "Beyond Your Backyard," I travel (on average) 25 weeks per year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to meet cool people, experience new places, eat delicious food and work with the best production crew in the world. Hopefully, through this blog, you will join me on my travels and be reminded just how exciting it is to be alive!
