For the first time ever, the national Travel & Adventure show came to Philadelphia the weekend of March 21-22, making its temporary home at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. One-day tickets were only nine dollars for patrons who used the social media promo code, and a free shuttle service was provided from the Ikea parking lot in South Philly. A rock climbing wall, scuba diving tank, and an area for “Segway” riding included some of the attractions for attendees to enjoy.
But the following features were also found at this event:
Global Beats Stage (Italian and Cuban cultural performances)
Destination Theater (India and Cuba)
Travel Channel theater (Samantha Brown, Travel Channel host, & Patricia Schultz, author of 1000 Places to See Before You Die, both graced the stage)
Cooking Demonstration (Taste of Travel segment)
Wide variety of local, national and international vacation/travel vendors
It was not possible to explore all that this interesting show had to offer without entering a few travel raffle and sweepstake contests. Being at an event like this suddenly made me realize that there’s simply so much to see [and experience] in the world and yet so little time [or so it seems]. The world is truly yours and mine’s for the traveling! Visit Travel & Adventure Show – Philadelphia, to get a clearer picture of this spectacular event for the wanderlust in heart. 😉
