A Guide to the World Famous San Diego ZooWritten by Scott Olivares
A Guide to San Diego Zoo
I recently visited San Diego Zoo, and it was much more fun than I expected it to be. First off, price was very reasonable. When you get there you have option to buy regular Zoo ticket or deluxe ticket. I paid around $30 for deluxe ticket which seemed like a deal to me since I am used to paying around $50 for Disneyland and Sea World tickets. The deluxe ticket is definitely worth extra ten dollars. It consists of a 40-minute guided tour, unlimited access to express bus that takes you from place to place, and unlimited access to aerial tram.
If you have never been to San Diego Zoo before, I would suggest going on guided tour first. It only lasts about 40 minutes, and takes you around entire zoo. The tour has plenty of stops where you can see many of most popular animals such as African elephants, tigers, and bears. The Zoo is huge, so taking guided tour is also a good way to familiarize yourself with its layout.
The bus drops you off near elephants, where you will also find tigers and leopards. If you want to grab a bite to eat, there are a couple of nearby places where you can get some good food. After you finish tour I would suggest walking around edges of park. The Zoo is round, so you will see most of animals by going around edges. You will find zebras, bears, camels, and many other interesting animals that I never even knew existed.
Myrtle Beach Golf Vacations and Hurricanes Ė How to Weather the StormWritten by Evans Putman
Hurricane season in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina runs from June through November each year. The peak months for hurricane activity are August and September. If you are planning a Myrtle Beach golf vacation during these times of year, you should prepare yourself before arriving at your golf destination. This article provides tips and advice on how to weather any storm tropics might throw at you while enjoying your golf vacation.
NOAA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, predicts that 2005 will be another above-average Atlantic hurricane season. The organization predicts 12 to15 tropical storms, 7 to 9 hurricanes and 3 to 5 major hurricanes. Vacationing golfers should not take these predictions lightly. We have already seen one of busiest Julys in history of hurricane tracking.
Golfers should not let these predictions deter them from taking a golf trip to Myrtle Beach area during summer and fall seasons. Summer golf deals along Grand Strand are hotter than our southern summers. Also, fall in Myrtle Beach provides golfers with dropping accommodation rates to accompany falling temperatures and humidity.
If you are unlucky enough to be right in middle of a golf vacation when a hurricane takes aim at coast of Carolinas, donít worry. Unlike an unexpected afternoon thunderstorm, hurricanes do not sneak up on South Carolina coast. This gives vacationing golfers plenty of time to leave before situation gets dangerous.
The best piece of advice we can offer if you plan on visiting Grand Strand golf area during hurricane season is to keep an eye on extended Myrtle Beach weather forecast. If a hurricane approaches during your trip, don't panic. As soon as it looks like you may need to abandon your golf vacation, begin following these steps.
