  • As we close in on the end of the season for the Fields of Dreams at The World on Wheels, we enter the rarified air of the best of Major League Baseball stadiums. The last three are head and shoulders above the rest and feature outstanding wheelchair accessibility. This week, at the edge of Kansas City, we update Kauffman Stadium...home of the Royals.

  • Who has as many World Series Championships as the Yankees? Well, nobody, but the Cardinals come in second with 11. This week's Fields of Dreams update on The World on Wheels takes us to one of the best baseball cities in America, it's Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

  • On the conclusion of our Midwest Baseball Tour at The World on Wheels, we take a side trip to Monroe Elementary School in Topeka, Kansas...where Oliver Brown's daughter attended. They're better known as the Brown in Brown v. The Topeka Board of Education, a landmark suit for civil rights. Now, it's a national historic monument. With video and pictures, we also visit the state historical museum and find one heck of a good comfort food restaurant: http://tinyurl.com/37lhfcy

  • We were in the Southwest terminal, can't remember the number...2? Anyway, we double checked...in the entire terminal, in the secure zone, there are 4 toilets...not bathrooms...for each sex. There are 3 snack carts with a small selection of food and drink. Before security, there are the usual shops, restaurants, and restrooms. This is particularly bad if you're in a wheelchair because the airlines want you to show up an extra hour earlier than everyone else to tag the chair, make sure you qualify for preboard, etc.

    I can see where it would be super-convenient for arrival, but departure...at least at Southwest...can be a chore. Talking with other people who have experienced leaving from MCI, I know I'm not alone in my opinion.

    The rental car facility is top-notch, however. And the city of KC itself is great. Didn't see the forest, I had an aisle seat.

Notable among them are the various Chinatowns in New York City, San Francisco, and elsewhere, And here are five other destinations whose ethnic enclaves will transport you to foreign shores. read post

Branson offers fun & frivolity in a pastoral setting

As our car crested the last hill overlooking the town ahead, I rubbed my eyes to make sure they weren’t deceiving me. The first thing I spotted was a giant King Kong clambering menacingly up a building. Another roof was topped by a helicopter which appeared to have just landed or was about to take off. Among other hard-to believe visions that came into view were a huge chicken, an equally oversize fork piercing a large meatball and a half-size replica of the Titanic nestled against the iceberg…

Branson options cited in 'In the USA this Fall, Combine Foliage with Adventure'

Dan and Mary Stroudt oooh and aaah at the multicolored scenery below the hot air balloon in which they’re riding. The journey is very different for Mark and Marylee Sutherland as they help to paddle a rubber raft along a stretch of whitewater in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Betsy Goodman and Tom Cross are traveling at a slower pace, strolling across a glass-bottom observation deck. These disparate experiences may seem to have little in common, but they do. They provide…

3 cool things to do in Missouri

A Midwestern state between Kansas and Kentucky, Missouri is covered in grassy levels that go for miles that comparison versus the high tops of the Ozark Mountains. A number of cities populate Missouri and are full of fantastic attractions, like the National World War I Museum in Kansas City, or the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. Nevertheless, there is plenty of nature to balance out the city bustle, such as stunning state parks and other hideaways among the many things to do in Missouri. Here are…
