Roadtrip: Help Me Out

Beginning Aug. 20, I'll be hitting the road for 30 days, traveling solo from Miami to Seattle.

I need your tips and suggestions on where to stop! Click on the Comments button at the bottom of this posting. We've changed the site so you don't have to be a member to post a comment; all you have to do is ... post it.

I won't be able to pick up my regular Miami Herald e-mail on the trip, so the only way I can see your ideas is if you post them here. And we'd like other readers to be able to see them, too.

I've picked the basic route: Miami; Birmingham, Ala.; Nashville; Memphis; St. Louis; Kansas City; Glacier National Park, Mont; and Seattle. What I do in each place, and what I do between them, is wide open.

I'll be taking suggestions throughout the trip via this blog. We'll combine the suggestions with some of our own ideas and set up a daily vote, so you can tell me where to go. And yes, I'll actually go where the vote commands!

Get those ideas coming!

While visiting Montana -

Be sure to visit the Flathead Lake Brewery. Their beer has won numerous awards and they are very, very friendly folks. http://www.flatheadlakebrewing.com/

Also, the best sushi I've ever had (and that's saying something since I've lived in both New York and Seattle) is in Whitefish Montana. The name of the place is Wasabi Sushi Bar, and it is dynomite. Nummy!

Hi Jane,

This is an old friend of Anne's, Julian Clarke's daughter. Is Julian still working at the Herald with you?

I need to ask him or Anne a favor. I need to know how to help a friend get his son, visiting in Costa Rica, San Jose with his aunts, grandparents. HIs name is Peter Jordan.

He went on summer school vacation, but not able to leave, due to being under age. Peter Jordan was able to get into the country (duel citizenship), but his aunt said they will not let him leave.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciative and very welcomed.

Thank you,

Hi Jane,

Since your trip will include Seattle, please consider driving just 36 miles south on I-5 to Tacoma, Washington's third largest city that has undergone a true transformation in just the past five years. Tacoma now boasts a new Museum District downtown -- where empty warehouses used to stand. Here three major museums now form an impressive triangle – the Tacoma Art Museum, the Museum of Glass, and the Washington State History Museum. Linking them is the spectacular Chihuly Bridge of Glass and historic Union Station, also filled with glass art by world-renowned, native son Dale Chihuly.

Tacoma's downtown has come alive with new dining, shopping, art gallery and entertainment venues, too. Plus a new, FREE light rail system runs the length of downtown and to the Tacoma Dome. For more details, visit www.traveltacoma.com. Hope you'll explore Tacoma when you reach the Pacific Northwest!

Jane,

While in Nashville, visit the Ryman Auditorium, The Parthenon, The Country Music Foundation and Museum, the Capitol and Capitol Mall, Bell Meade and Cheekwood Plantations, Music Row, and take in the nightlife downtown. Also, 20 miles south on I65, historic Franklin is a must. There visit Carter House, Carnton Plantation and cemetary, and the old Courthouse on the square. Take a drive down the Natchez Trace parkway and visit historic Leaper's Fork. You will not want to leave.

Jane,

While in Nashville, tour Music Row and have a snack at one of the eateries near the round-about. Make a reservation for the Bluebird Cafe, Music City's premiere listening room for songwriters. Nashville is the place where it all DOES begin with a song. Visit the Frist Museum of Art and the beaux arts drama of the Hermitage Hotel, where both sides of the women's suffrage movement stayed and argued the merits of the 19th Amendment. (Tennessee's vote was the deciding vote.) Take in The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's home; drop in at Gruhn Guitars (George Gruhn is a world-expert on guitars), and see if you can wrangle a tour of the Gibson Guitar factory. If you work with the CVB, you may be able to snag a backstage pass to the Grand Ole Opry and mingle with Opry stars old and new.

When you arrive in Seattle be sure to tour the underground city. It's something you'll never forget. Most people outside of Seattle have never heard of it. And, of course, visit the fish market.

Hi Jane, My wife and I just returned from a 3 week road trip across the country. Two of the more unusual places were:
1. Alkabo, North Dakota: about 80 north of Williston. Alkabo has a population of 7 people. There is a school in the town that was built in 1932 and was closed in 1962. However, the people in the town keep the school in operational order. They paint it, keep it clean. It has the original desks, books, and etc.
2. Lucas, Kansas: I read about a man by the name of Dinsmoor (spelling ?). He fought in the Civil War. When his wife died, he wanted her burried in his back yard, but the town would not allow it, so he buried her in the town cemetary. However, a few days after, he dug her up and re-buried her in his back yard and intombed her in concete so the towns folk could not dig her up. He liked working with concrete so much that he constructed concrete political cartoon-like strutures all around his yard. At 80 years, he remarried a 20 year old and had 2 children, who are still alive, in their 80's. When he died, he was buried on top of his first wife, above ground. Yes, you can see him today in his coffin.

You can view some of these pictures on my website, ourtravels.bravehost.com

Hi Jane,
Huntsville, Alabama is worth a stop! It's home to the world's largest space museum and the nation's largest seasonal butterfly house. And that's not all. The largest concentration of antebellum homes in the state is in Huntsville and attractions like the Huntsville Museum of Art, Burritt on the Mountain, EarlyWorks Children's Museum, Alabama Constitution Village and the Veteran's Memorial Museum await.
Looking for some outstanding food? It's right here! The dungeoness crab cakes at The Jazz Factory are not to missed. 801 Franklin has one of the finest wine lists in the SE and of course, there are several casual dining options for that world famous southern BBQ.
Hope to see you soon in "The Rocket City"!

Don't miss Sun Valley, Idaho!
September is a perfect time to spend in the pristine and beautiful Idaho mountains on your way to Seattle, and Sun Valley offers a wealth of activities for your visit. You can do everything from hike to bike to white water raft, and then peruse the many galleries and shops, and eat in one of over 50 restaurants for a gourmet dinner. At the historic Sun Valley Lodge you can skate outdoors at the ice rink where Sonja Henie shot "Sun Valley Serenade," take a dip in the heated outdoor pool overlooking the mountains, and peruse the photos of the many Hollywood legends who have enjoyed all that Sun Valley has to offer over the years. You could also visit Ernest Hemingway's grave and have a drink at one of his favorite haunts back in the day. Sun Valley is a wonderful place not to be missed on your journey!

When visiting Memphis -

Downtown has come a long way so if you are here you need to come downtown. Greats are Stella, McEwen's, Felicia Suzannes, and Grill 83. Lolo's Table and Mediterana are great too. If you want to do Memphis ribs, Rendezvous in an alley off Monroe is the place to go. I hope you enjoy!

Susan said...

While in Memphis you must go to Graceland. Yes. It is tacky but no traveler worth their salt would travel through the home of the King of Rock and Roll and not stop by to visit!

Also if you can go to the Civil Rights Museum, Sun Studio, and Stax Museum.

And if you are hungry:

BBQ - Central BBQ on Central Avenue or The Rendezvous downtown for ribs and atmosphere

Catfish, hush puppies and Smoked Chicken - Soul Fish on Cooper

Breakfast - Brother Juniper's or The Barksdale (good place for plate lunches, too)

Best fish in town - Tsunami on Cooper (known for their Sea Bass with black thai rice and buerre blanc - awesome! Cool place, too.)

Quetzal on Union is a great place for sandwiches and fresh roasted coffee - they serve the sandwiches on fresh foccaccia and ciabratta breads. Also serves a great breakfast!

For great Vietenames - and interesting wait staff go to Saigon Le on Cleveland. Try the Saigon Le eggrolls!

Hi Jane,

While traveling through Alabama your trip would not be complete without a visit to ,USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park. We are located just off I-10 on Mobile Bay. The park is a 175 acre memorial park dedicated to Alabamians who have or are serving in the Armed Forces. Here you will be able to tour two National Historic Landmarks, Battleship USS ALABAMA and Submarine USS DRUM. Visitors are also able to view over 20 historic aircraft, a Korean War Memorial, a Vietnam War Memorial, along with other military equipment, artillery, and displays.

I hope you will have the chance to visit one of Alabama's top attractions!

nancy said...

I agree with Susan about places to go in Memphis. If you go to Felicia Suzanne's (she used to work with Emeril Lagasse), you gotta have shrimp with stone ground grits. Now that's southern! Also add the Ornamental Metal Museum to the list of places to visit. It overlooks the Mississippi River and is one of a kind. Have fun!

I would suggest restaurant Wally Joe when you visit Memphis. High quality food stufs with artful presentation. Wally, Andrew, Joe and the rest of the staff will take care of all you culinary needs!

Harriet said...

Hello Jane,

On your route between Miami and Birmingham, you must stop and check out the Mobile Bay area located on the spectacular Gulf Coast of Alabama. Mobile Bay is where you can experience the best of the Gulf Coast! Enjoy our gracious hospitality, the sights, the tastes and the feel of our historic Southern port city. There is so much to see and do. Award winning Bellingrath Gardens, the USS ALABAMA Battleship, the Estuarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, the Mobile Carnival Musuem (open just over a year now, exhibiting costumes, gowns, floats, sceptors, crowns and more all from the home of america's original mardi gras!), Alligator Alley, to name just a few. During the time of your trip, there are may special events, celebrations and exhibits taking place in our specatcular coastal city.

Inside the Forbidden City - a photographic display by Joel Meyerowitz will be at the Mobile Museum of Art. Meyerowitz was the only photographer allowed complete access to the World Trade Center site immediately following 9/11. These photos show the display of humanity after such a tragic event.

Also appearing at the Mobile Museum of Art at the same time is NALL: Violata Pax (Wounded Peace)- this 52 station-theme exhibit addressed by Nall is a highly topical one: Man’s wounded dignity (intellectual, physical, moral becomes the unwitting leading role in a real and tangible Stations of the Cross of Humanity that is experienced everywhere today, regardless of geography or race.

If you're looking for some FUN, the stop on into the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center and IMAX Theater. On display will be Football: The Exhibit. This exhibit shows the math, history and science behind the game. Organized into zones that relate directly to the game, the exhibit encourages hands-on participation from beginning to end. Fun for football fans of all ages! Also playing at the Gulf Coast Exploreum IMAX Dome Theater through January 11 is Walt Disney IMAX Film, Roving Mars.

If you want to get a true feeling for the rhythm of Mobile Bay's relaxed coastal lifestyle, come joing us for our Ninth Annual Mobile Beer Festival! On August 26th both local and visiting beer connoisseurs will descend upon downtown taverns and restaurants to sample over 50 different microbrews and imports from all over the world. The moda! electronic trolley will be on hand to help carry participants from one side of the entertainment district to the other for free. The International Beer Festival takes place in Downtown Mobile on Saturday, August 26.

When visiting the Mobile Bay area, make sure you check out our unique cuisine. We are famous for our incredibly fresh seafood, you won't find more delicious seafood anywhere! And be sure to check out our juicy barbecue, spicy Creole and Cajun dishes, and down-home Southern cooking,and leave room for our signature homemade desserts like pecan pie, pralines, fudge, divinity and "designer" chocolates.

After dining in one of our incredible restaurants go check out the nightlife, Mobile Bay style. A diverse array of bars, nightclubs and live music venues provide entertainment ranging from upscale and traditional, to downright fun and funky. Our nightlife offers a unique glimpse at the spirit of our city.

I could go on for hours about all that Mobile Bay has to offer as a destination, but the best way to truly understand it is to stop by and see it for yourself! For even more information you can visit www.mobilebay.org

I wish you safe travels and much enjoyment on your trip across the US.

While in Memphis, be sure to check out some our best BBQ places. While the Rendevous is the most famous, it is probably the worst in town (they don't need to be good because they are famous), but our worst is better than anyone else's best. Try Payne's on Lamar, the Barbeque Shop, or the Germantown Commissary. Interstate is very good as well. For upscale restaurants, check out the funky Beauty Shop in Cooper-Young, Stella on Main, Encore on Third, or Walley Joe on Sanderlin. For country food, you can't go wrong with the Arcade on South Main.

Debra Hall said...

Anne,

While in Memphis, barbecue is de rigeur. The world famous Rendezvous serves the best ribs in Memphis (recently host to President Bush and the Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi). For pulled pork barbeque, my personal favorite is Central BBQ, a smaller barbeque joint, which has the most flavorful, best quality barbeque.

Beale Street, Sun Studios, the National Civil Rights Museum and (I suppose) Graceland are all some of the must-see's for Memphis, although my favorite tourist activity is a night cruise on the Mississippi and dinner downtown. Also don't forget to enjoy the lobby of the Peabody Hotel and watch the parade of ducks. Hope you enjoy your stay in Memphis!

Don’t miss The Ave Maria Grotto, and Cullman, Alabama! The Ave Maria Grotto is a four-acre park of 130 miniatures of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, Rome, American Spanish missions, and much more. (Listed on the National Register of Historic Places) It is the inspiring creation of one of the Benedictine monks of St. Bernard Abbey, the late Brother Joseph Zoettl (1892-1961). He came from his native Bavaria at the age of 14 to be a missionary with the Benedictine monks of north Alabama for the new German settlers of the area. The Grotto is on the monastery grounds where the monks also have a boarding high school and retreat center.
Cullman is a small progressive city mid way between Birmingham and Huntsville at Exit 308 on Interstate highway 65. Its character is a mix of its German and southern heritages, hard-working and hospitable.
The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament is a few miles away form the Ave Maria Grotto in Cullman County. It is the home of Mother Angelica of EWTN TV network fame and the cloistered Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration. The Shrine welcomes pilgrims for private prayer and daily liturgical celebrations. It is a spiritual marvel to see and experience.

Hi Jane

we are taking a road trip and driving to the Pahandle area to see Destin/Ft. Walton Beach.
We rented a wonderful private house, with white picket fence and private pool.

The house has 3 bedrooms and we are using just one. Our trip wil coincide with yours.
We would love to have you stay with us.

Also, if driving near Scottsboro, AL make sure to visit the Unclaimed Baggage Center. You never know what you will find.

In Nashville, go to the Loveless Motel for breakfast.It's worth seing.
Also in Nashville the Gaylord Hotel to see the extraordinary atrium interior lobby.

I will send you an e-mail off-line.

When you're in the Nashville area, try to get to the Loveless Cafe (http://www.lovelesscafe.com/) for some great food and a fun souvenir t-shirt. If you happen to be near Vanderbilt, check out Obie's Flying Tomato (2217 Elliston Pl, Nashville TN 37203-5205 Phone: 615-327-4743)for some great pizza. I lived right behind Obie's back in the early 80's and still remember how good that pizza smelled!

before you go to nashville, you must detour a little to the east to visit colonial williamsburg, virginia, where the 400th birthday of america's first settlers is perparing for 2007, and to norfolk/virginia beach, virginia, which is a half-size carbon copy of miami, complete with their version of downtown bayside called 'waterside', the same amount of atlantic oceanfront, the same transformation of downtown to condos, and a growing minority community that is just beginning to add spanish tv and radio to the area. go there and tell us what it's like, how is it like miami, or different, please, before you go to nashville and them we can meet you in st. louis!! thanks, charles meads

when in Glacier area, make sure you have a Huckleberry milkshake -- Hulkelberry Patch in Hungry Horse is great, but any place will do in Huckleberry Nation. Ask a local if they can take you berry picking; you'll be late in the season, but it is sublime. Flathead Lake is fantastic, as is Whitefish.

Jane, Hope you pass through Cody, Wyoming... there is a great Charles Russell Museum... and if the local Rodeo is going on.... it is fun.... small and just plain fun to sit in the wooden stands and watch the participants and spectators...
Love Whitefish, Montana..
The Boeing Musemum in the Seattle area is most interesting...
We know you are going to have an adventure if you stop at a Flying J Truck Stop anywhere out west!
Have enjoyed your many articles and look forward to enjoying your latest adventure!

Steve Thompson said...

Jane, you're headed toward Glacier National Park at the right time of year. September can be the finest weather with a crisp Indian summer. Or it can be rather nasty ... but usually not until mid October. If you're in the camping mode, go to Two Medicine Campground. If you're lodging, Many Glacier Lodge is grandiose and creaky, another example of the massive deferred maintenance backlog in our national parks. Great bear watching in either place - bring good binoculaurs or spotting scope. En route, check out Glacier's cool web cams at: http://www.nps.gov/glac/whatsnew.htm

Speak up for parks. Visit the National Parks Conservation Association Take Action Center online at www.npca.org to sign up for a biweekly email update on park needs and easy ways to contact Congress and make a difference.

Hello it seems to me a very pretty page and very entertainmet, has a good service for all those people that visits many congratulations by a good site
I invite all that interested person to know a little on my Web site
PRECONSTRUCTION CONDOS IN COSTA RICA
Purchasing a condominium before the construction begins is a way for developers to get the working capitol they need for their projects and for investors to save money on the finished product. Many times investors are able to resell the condominium for a profit before the work is complete, and in some cases condos have sold multiple times with multiple profits before there anyone actually took delivery of the real estate.

This practice is very common in Costa Rica as it provides economic incentives by means of low priced, preconstruction deals to the client, which is mutually benefitial to the developer. The precaution that we take and recommend to our clients, is to be sure that the developer who is building the project, has a proven track record either abroad, or more importantly, here in Costa Rica. Ask your agent to give you some background on the developer, and the team involved in the project including the architect, builder, and developer
For but information it visits my Web site the following direction http://www.ramadajaco.com

I came to Costa Rica 7 years ago on a vacation and quickly fell in love with the beauty of the country and the hospitality of the people here. I couldn't wait to come back. I started coming here about 4 times per year and always had a great time and didn't want to leave. Two years ago, I decided to leave Arizona and come live in Paradise. I can not tell you how happy I am that I made that decision. Today, I wake up next to the ocean and run on the beach every morning. I eat the most delicious fruits, vegetables and fresh seafood. My stress levels are much lower than when I was living in the States and the potential here for investing, truly is unlimited. The best part of living here is showing our clients this country. I really don't feel like I have a job for the first time in my life. The joy I receive when I see the look on people's faces when they get into the warm water of the Pacific ocean is truly priceless. For those of you that have come and discovered paradise, you know what I am talking about. For those of you that are on the way, I can't wait to get you here. And to those who are thinking about Costa Rica, please do yourself a favor and come down. You will have the time of your life.

Theyre right on top of us, and Savous and Hyle are both on the surface. Hed tried to get his men to turn back, then, when they wouldnt, to fight. Most commonly, those who were truemated fell in love, sometimes instantly sometimes it took centuries. His attention was on her again, those red eyes intense even over the distance. They deserved to find comfort. Her accustomed method of casting, she would likely have caused a worse cavein. She shook her head. You didnt falter once, even if you were nervous. That wouldnt help alleviate her guilt, nor would it open the way to forgiveness. I…didnt realize until recently thats what Id done, but its true. Im sorry to ruin this for you too, but… Damn. She froze when his hand closed around her arm just above her elbow. A gasp puffed past her lips as Lanthan pressed a kiss just underneath her ear. Tykirs cock slid deliciously through her hands, the oils from his skin coating her palms. Whispering low in the smaller mans ear, he pulled Tykir away. She shivered at the feel of liquid warmth oozing out of her. Even from a distance, the man was striking. Considering the alternatives, I think what we endured recently is preferable. Sex is one thing —which he very well knew— actual children is another. His strange eyes shone but didnt swirl.

Nialdlye shook out her hand as though it would help the creeping sensation to fade. Nialdlye suckled her nipple as she yanked the ties that held the blouse closed. We may have even convinced ourselves that we dont feel what we feel for them. Her sinewy warrior had to pummel someone on a regular basis or he became antsy. Only then did she become aware of the attention of the others in the balcony.
