This month we bring you a selection of attractions and activities that include everything from a fun pinball museum, to donkey rides on the slopes of Mt. Etna. Deeply urban to truly rural, you might say.
The options listed bellow also include ocean adventure tours and desert treks, with plenty of chances to spot marine and land wildlife in places as diverse as Africa and Mexico. Start planning a trip to one of our featured destinations by adding one–or all–of these activities to your personalized itinerary.
Pacific Pinball Museum
Dozens of playable machines at Pacific Pinball Museum lure in hordes of fun seekers. No coins–no problem! Your ticket entitles you to play every machine on display at no extra charge.
It’s fun, for sure. But it’s also living history–exhibits include a machine from the 19th century. And a 1930s model seized by the Oakland police during the Prohibition.
44A Sanat Galerisi
A visit to 44A Sanat Galerisi will widen your artistic horizons. The gallery exhibits both domestic and foreign artists. Works range from textiles to paintings.
In addition to the art, the gallery serves excellent Turkish coffee at the onsite cafe. Along with yummy cake and sandwiches.
Pezcaribe Ocean Adventure Tours
Pezcaribe is a family-owned company dedicated to helping you create lasting vacation memories. Want to know how?
They offer everything from deep-sea and fly-fishing, to guided snorkeling and diving excursions.
Couples can take romantic trips, with a picnic lunch and wine on the beach.
Desert Tracks let you experience more than…well, the desert. With both desert treks and marine cruises, they ensure you see Namibia from a range of perspectives.
Wildlife safaris ensure chances to spot iconic African animals. Sunset/stargazing combos guarantee you see the desert at night. Not to mention, the stars shining above.
Tree of Life Wildlife Rescue Center and Botanical Gardens
Your ticket to Tree of Life will help support endangered animals. That’s tourism with a meaning.
If you need tourism with a few laughs, the resident creatures will provide that too. Try not to smile at those capuchin monkeys and sloths hanging off trees.
In addition to the animal area, the center features a botanical garden. It’s 4 hectares (10 acres) of spice plants, palms, fruit trees, and tropical flowers.
Etna Donkey Trekking
Riding with Etna Donkey Trekking is more than a trip across Sicilian landscapes. It’s also a journey back to a simpler time.
Donkey riding remains one of the most eco-friendly ways to sightsee. And probably the best way to explore ancient paths used for thousands of years.
In the colder months, you can take a shorter excursion with a visit to an old castle.
There’s nothing bad about Schoenbrunner Bad. The complex includes several swimming pools, modern fitness center, and a venue for playing beach volleyball.
That’s in addition to the onsite restaurant, Finnish sauna, and massage area.
You can buy a daily ticket, or pick up a seasonal pass to keep coming back whenever you have time for some R&R.
Cape Water Tours & Taxi
Cape Water Tours does more than just simple boat rides. Options include eco-tours, fireworks cruises, history-themed trips, live music cruises, and many others.
The best thing about this operator? They let you BYOB. So, bring a picnic basket with some snacks and a few cold drinks and let the party begin.
Lake Como at you own pace. That’s what AC Boat delivers, in a nutshell.
The company offers modern vessels for rent. Boats come with wide sundecks and awning. Additional features include GPS and every bit of safety equipment to set your mind at peace.
You’ll also get a full fuel tank, so you can sail for hours without having to stop. It’s the perfect setup for a family party or a gathering of friends.
Use it and you'll discover more and save time planning your next trip.
