Welcome to our local, regional and global TRAVEL GUIDE/ Travel Directory. We are renewing and updating our material for 2022 at this time, with certain requests of our readers.

We are in the process of adding more travel links to this section for this next quarter where we will be sharing suggestions for fun family and couples' getaways and vacations, tips on saving money while away from home, interesting activities to engage in while on a trip and a wide variety of other travel-related subjects.

NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS: For the quintessential traveler who wants to have access to the most intriguing, most unique or exotic places around the globe. This is the section for the jet-setter, thrill-seeker, cross-country backpacker, biker or hiker, or for just those simple-seeking travel adventurers who need a traditional break away from home to the standard, favored Florida Keys or Cumberland Falls.

LOCAL & REGIONAL TRAVELERS: Faraway places aren't the ONLY getaway zones you can catch up on a much-needed break or a romantic or family trip. For your home-away-from-home, you can still enjoy a fun and relaxing getaway in a cozy cottage, a bucolic B & B or an amusing theme-built, creative lodge with lots of recreational agendas not too far from your zip code.  (Maybe right in your same city!)  This is not only a great idea for those interested in shopping local and giving back to their local economy, but a more preferable trend for those budget-conscious folks who can't afford to jet off to the UK.  

Our readers told us in our last survey that they want local & regional places
rich in history and places that are unique & original, off the beaten path. Both Ohio and Kentucky (as well as IN, TN, WV & other surrounding regions) have so much to offer right here in our area - so much historic jewels and wonders rooted and steeped in high-quality art, music, museums, and many unique shops, not to mention good 'ole southern comfort foods and restaurants. 

So many PARENTS HOME-SCHOOLING NOW: Have let us know that they wish to teach their kids more about hands-on local and regional history so, travel is now being more widely used as FIELD TRIPS are burgeoning forth for home-education!

Peruse what our very own unique part of the USA has to offer and teach your kids about some history along the way!


What our families and parents want in travel this year and in the coming new year - may surprise you and may also PLEASE your ears to hear....If you have any similar stories or interests as so many of our readers have, please share with us!
