Anchorage, Alaska: Anchorage Away!

13 07 2010

Talk glaciers, totems and Alaskan king crab in this spirited American city.

Tackle Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, a winding path that ascends ten miles from downtown Anchorage to Kincaid Park with views of Mt. McKinley–North America’s tallest peak–ships dawdling in Cook’s Inlet, and the occasional moose, whale, or eagle.

Head south along Seward Highway to Portage Glacier, the dramatic geological product of Father Time and Mother Nature. This mammoth hanging glacier and its offspring lake are wondrous to see. After, warm up at the cozy Glacier Brewhouse, where you can knock back a Honey Maibock (or a Coke) while waiting for your wood spit-grilled meat, king crab legs, or herb-crusted fish.

Thrill-seekers, spend a day whitewater rafting in the smooth rapids of Matanuska River or the not-so-smooth white crests of Lion Head. Whether you’re in for a peaceful float down the river or a white-knuckle splash ‘n soak adventure, Anchorage delivers.

This fantastic adventure and so much more are all available at Soens Travel Aventures.

Harrisburg/Hershey, Pennsylvania: The Sweetest Place on Earth

30 06 2010

Zip to the “sleeper hits” of Pennsylvania, where old-time paddleboat rides, Gettysburg re-enactments, and Hershey’s Kisses are the recipe for a sweet weekend.

Photo by IgoUgo.comThough less well-known than Philly, this capital’s vigorous development efforts–coupled with it?s passion for the arts–have catapulted Harrisburg into almost-famous status. There’s nary a weekend that goes by here without live jazz, local art festivals, or renowned chili cook-offs.

Ride bikes along Susquehana Riverfront Park, or get wet with a lazy-day paddleboat or canoe. Next, venture 20 minutes beyond city limits to taste your way through the famed Hershey Chocolate World?. Whirl on coasters (before chocolate tastings), then do your best to keep those Kisses from disappearing into grasping critter paws at the ZooAmerica wildlife park.

If the sugar buzz is still kicking, hike the historic National Battlefield trails, and delve into the Gettysburg battle through a “living historian” tour. Gallop across the 5,700-acre battlefield on horseback, or learn something new at over ten Civil War museums. You might think it’s all “fourscore and seven years ago,” but you can always hit the rapids or drop into a local winery.

This is a perfect, family-friendly vacation option for this summer, or any other time that suits you.

This vacation and others are now available for booking at www.soenstraveladvantures.com.  Enjoy!





Offbeat retreats – Panama City, Panama

6 06 2010

Straddle two oceans and two continents on a jaunt to Panama.

As the geographical lever between two continents and two oceans, the region around Panama City offers culture-soaked urban excursions and ecological nature sprees. Fathom the complex lock system of the awesome Panama Canal, where hefty ships are raised and lowered like toy boats in a draining bathtub.

Pedal, blade or stroll the Amador Causeway, a trafficked conduit linking three islands with the mainland. Leap through one of the country?s national parks or jungle habitat. Check out Chagres, the largest local park protecting the canal?s basin.

Admire Casco Viejo, the architectural insignia of Panama City’s colonial past. Eat indigenous specialties like corvine (sea bass) ceviche seasoned with limejuice, peppers and onions and buy molas, vibrant, Kuna Indian-made embroidery to remind yourself of your colorful discoveries down south.

Location, location, location! Panama can also be a fantastic jumping point to not only enjoy, but to access so many fascinating points both north and south.

Enjoy your vacation!
