Tuesday Travelogue-January 12th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 76th week!  Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:

 

 to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

  and hopefully much more!

MUSEUMS IN AMERICA

Today we are going to visit some museums across the country. 

The Frontier Army Museum is just one of three unique museums in Kansas City MO.Kevin Flinn offers some ideas when you get cabin fever this winter.

 

How about an entire street devoted to museums? You can find those at West Main St on Museum Row in Lousiville KY, thanks to Chris Thomas' post. 

Museum Row West Main Street Downtown Louisville

 

Any railroad fanatics out there? California State Railroad Museum might be right up your alley. Susan Neal takes us there.

Famous fashions through the years,  brought to you by two bloggers! This First Lady Dress Exhibit in Washington, DC is shown through the eyes of Dr. Stacey-Ann Baugh (2011), and when you're done there, head to

Michelle Obama's dress

 

Hillwood Estate in Washington, DC and follow along with Roy and Dolores Kelley on a recent trip they took earlier this month.

Philadelphia Museum of Art,  a perfect place to visit with one of our star designers, Joanna Cohlan. 

 

Lake Tahoe has a list of museums offering local history highlighted by Peg Augustus. This is an example of understanding the prehistoric peoples found in this area. She gives good descriptions of different museums and places of interest to educate yourself! 

You will definitely have a great time at these educational institutions and museums near Incline Village NV luxury homes for sale!

 

If you are looking to further educate yourself, OR um...."Muse" over art, OR have a Bucket List that needs fleshing out, you might just need to visit these for yourself! 

Please don't forget to comment on these blog posts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. 

Travellers in the Rain!

Thank you very much for including one of my blogs in your selection. 

Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens is an excellent travel destination in Washington, DC. Dolores and I are annual members and enjoy every visit.

You and Dolores are most welcome! I found a few posts of yours that could easily fit this "museum" category.

Hi Gayle, The museum I find least interesting are First Lady dresses.  It certainly takes nothing away from another great Tuesday Travelogue. Thanks for putting these together.

I'm reaching a stage of life, where I can't go into a place that specializes in old stuff for fear that they won't let me out

Hi Gayle - Whenever we travel, we're always drawn to museums. They're a constant source of delight and amazement, and almost always worth the effort.

Sharon Paxson I found one of yours that I've bookmarked for the future! 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel ya know, Roger D. Mucci isn't the ONLY one who can make things twisted now and then. 

Kathleen Daniels when I found two posts that both captured this, I thought it was interesting, altho, Roy's talks more about fashion through the ages, too in his visit. 

Ed Silva not to worry, your number's not up.

Oh, my I love getting the twisted thumbs up, from you, my dear! (And I've been a twisted and shaken soul for a long time...you will never find me "on the rocks", but up only!).

From what I'm finding, too, Dick Greenberg many Rainers like to focus on these in their localism posts. Thus the theme this week. I actually thought you might enjoy it and I was right! (In all of my travels with you...hah!)

Thanks for the shout out during your 76th travel week - and what better place to go to than Philadelphia where the year 1776 was a really big one!  Missing you and hoping to catch up - maybe this weekend?

I need some GF talk Joanna Cohlan that sounds good! I don't think I have anything pressing for a change. I always love showing you off to the world!
