Budget Travel put together a list of 8 Countries That Don’t Roll Out The Welcome Mat.
When they say the welcome mat, BT is talking about allowing tourists to enter the country without paying (mostly) hefty fees for a visa. The visa fee is not the only issue, getting approved for it can be a major pain in the… well you know what.
I wouldn’t typically call an elevator ride a tourist attraction but Budget Travel would beg to differ when it comes to 12 that they mentioned in a recent article.
BT says when it comes to elevators, function usually trumps form and the ride is usually forgettable. Not so with these lifts—some look like they belong in sci-fi thrillers, others could be theme park attractions, but a trip on any one of them will earn you a lifetime of bragging rights.
I figured that the article was worth a look and saw that I had (kind of) been on 2 of these elevators with one other being close to home.
With the United States being such a large and diverse country, it has a ton of variety in terms of things to do, see and experience.
Budget Travel says that the U.S. is a land of extremes. They decided to explore the country and look into the variety of extremes and come up with favorite points that embody our nation’s capacity for wonder.
Last year BudgetTravel readers voted Lititz, Pennsylvania the Coolest Small Town in America for 2013. Kim and I checked out Lititz while visiting Pennsylvania Dutch Country, home to the Amish and filled with farms. We enjoyed our visit but I don’t remember it standing out any more than the other small towns in the area. Lititz is the only top small town from the list that we’ve visited.
