Fall travel, here we come!

Where did you spend your Labor Day?
Labor Day 2011 is now behind us and we're ready for fall travel and fun!

Since this was a holiday weekend, show hosts Gary Guertin and Robin Hicks-Connors decided to take a holiday from having an in-studio guest and covered a wide range of vacation based factoids. These included: National Geographic’s Free to See in the U.S. list, special pet friendly amenities available in some southern California hotels and restaurants, and Frommer's top places in the Caribbean to get away from it all. Gary and Robin covered a lot of ground and had a fun time rolling through their "lists."

Listeners also received a Bahamas update. Although Hurricane Irene ran her course through the Islands of the Bahamas just a week and several days ago (seems longer),  through the Flahama Coconut Telegraph and connections with Coastal Angler Magazine-FlahamaTalkin’ Tourism provided island-by-island post-storm updates. Despite Irene's wrath, the Bahamas have recovered remarkably well and are definitely “open for business." Gary highlighted the great effort put forth by all Bahamians to get things in order as quickly as possible. Go, Visit the Bahamas!
