Guess where we’ll be this weekend? (Hint: It’s like heaven for travel geeks like us)
The Los Angeles Travel and Adventure Show!
It’s the next best thing to actually hopping on a plane and stopping in several exotic destinations.
Trying to plan your next vacation? Hit up one of the many travel agencies that will be there to get a better idea of possible trips.
Adventure junkie? Swing down the indoor zip line, scamper up the rock wall, walk (or roll) on water in a Bubble Rollers Water Ball, bounce around on the Euro Bungy Trampoline, or spice it up with exotic flavors at the culinary stage.
Want to watch a performance? Watch everything from Spanish Flamenco to Arab Folk Dance to Traditional Indonesian Dance performed throughout the weekend on the Global Beats Stage.
Looking for tips and tricks from the best in the business? Rick Steves, Pauline Frommer, and Peter Greenberg will be among other travel experts giving talks at two different stages Saturday and Sunday.
Like to win things? (Is that even a question?) Stop at various booths and at the front entrance to enter a multitude of sweepstakes. Personally, we’ve got our eyes on the trip to Kenya and the buy-one-get-one-free trip to Antarctica.
And, of course, stop by and visit your favorite local travel bookstore’s booth! We’ll be there with a broad selection of our travel guides, including Lonely Planet books for 50% off and Rick Steves books for 20% off. Not bad, huh?
It will be held January 12-13 at the Long Beach Convention Center. Want to purchase tickets or get some more info? Visit the official site here.
