The famous Austin moniker, Keep Austin Weird, doesn’t mean there is a bunch of weird people in Austin, but that Austin supports the entrepreneur. Sure, Austin has big Fortune 500 companies, like Dell Computer; but, favors the start-ups. As the home of The University of Texas and the capital of Texas, Austin has rolling hills accented by the Colorado River (Lady Bird Lake) flowing lazily through the center. In 2009, Money Magazine voted Austin third best big city to live in. Come join us as we show you around Austin.
Walk Beijing is designed as a point-to-point walking guide for the adventurous, first time visitor to the Chinese capitol. Each walk begins at a Chinese landmark then proceeds to lesser touristy locations. Walk Beijing serves best as a companion guide to major guide books. You won't find list upon list of hotels or restaurants. What you will find are five concise, easy-to-follow walking tours.
Cabo San Lucas, located on the peninsula of Baja California, has warm waters, white beaches, great fishing, and adventurous activities such as parasailing, wave runners, zip lining and snorkeling/diving. The nightlife is fun and plentiful. The shopping is typical Mexican souvenir trinkets.
Chicago is the third largest city in the US with 2.7 million people. Known by many acronyms, such as Chi-town, Windy City, Second City and the City of Big Shoulders. Chicago has vast entertainment venues including Lincoln Park Zoo, Shakespeare Theater, Navy Pier, Architecture Foundation River Cruise and Millennium Park. See Chicago up close and personal on a Bobby’s Bike Hire. If bicycling doesn’t meet your needs, the City has great public transportation either on the bus or train. Whatever your interests, there’s a museum to meet those interests. Meet Sue the T-Rex at The Field Museum. The Shedd Aquarium will take you to a Caribbean Reef and The Adler Planetarium will fly you to the stars. Chicago has so many things to offer that you can keep coming back and never see or do the same things twice.

Finland, the Daughter of the Baltic, is sandwiched between Sweden and Russia and for centuries was their battleground. You’ll find the Swedish influence dominates. From its founding in 1550 by King Gustav Vasa to its declaration of independence in 1917, Finland stoically dealt with turmoil, famine and war.
In about two years from now, London will host the 2012 Olympics. She is busy painting, building, and spiffying up for your arrival.
