Pets have never been more pampered and spoiled in history than now. Boutiques, Doggy Daycare, Pet Clothes, Boutique pet food, and owners leaving millions to their 4 legged loved ones is all the rage. So why not travel with your trusty companion. They deserve a vacation as well. If you are traveling with the one you love then for a lot of us that may mean our loving cat or dog.
This episode is for the pet lovers out there listening. Now all vacations are not for pets, I believe parents of both children and pets should take time to themselves on occassion to really be able to relax and bond with a mate or nature. But the times you want your friends with you there are lots of options and suggestions on making the best of it for you and your pet.
This is valentines month which is the day to show your loved ones you care, that means Vido as well. Listen for travel tips on flying or driving with your pets, pet friendly hotels, database on animal import requirements, and cool websites to help you make the right choice.
We'll also have a guest speaker from the Texas Wine Trail on to tell us about their event coming up that's almost sold out. Lindsey's local pet events, Yolanda's pet friendly restaurants and hotels, and more.

Eerie America could very well be called The Fodor’s Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. This is a series of travel documentaries geared towards educating people on the unique historic locations, fun facts, and promote tourism to some of the most incredible spots across the nation. Eerie America’s special niche is in defining and exploring Dark Tourism - which celebrates the macabre, the unusual, and the strange. Dark Tourism will serve to demystify the “demon in the dark” while retaining its intellectual allure. Where are these places and what are they? They can be found in every city, town and village throughout the nation, often hiding in plain sight. From bizarre dining experiences at The Jekyll & Hyde Restaurant and Bar to overnight stays at a the Lizzy Borden Bed and Breakfast murder scene and everything in between, Eerie America will shine a light on those secluded places across our vast country. Like a documentary, occasionally special celebrity guests who have knowledge about a topic or location will make an appearance, such as special guests author Rosemary EllenGuiley, MONSTER Quest's Ken Gerhard, Paranormal State's Michelle Belanger, Haunted Encounters Daniel Hooven and many others!

This week’s Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, one of the great grande dame icons. The official opening of the Broadmoor was in 1918, a building constructed on the same land where the original Broadmoor Casino stood before burning to the ground. Once a hotel that only allowed “old school money tabs” or cash as forms of payment, the Broadmoor’s concession to the 21st century is that they now accept credit cards.
Richard Sauers, Executive Director of the Western Museum of Mining & Industry, joins us to discuss this functional museum and why people travel from around the world to see the working—and fascinating—mining equipment. Then, Harris Kalofonos of the International Olympic Committee details how Colorado Springs became an Olympic Sister City and what that really means. All this and more from The Broadmoor.
