National Parks to Raise Entrance Fees in 2015

October 28, 2014 at 10:24 AM | by | Comments (0)

You best review those freebie days for your national park visit once 2015 rolls around, as it looks like Uncle Sam and friends might be raising admission prices.

Nothing is set in stone as of yet, but the National Park Service is kicking around the idea of increasing admission costs. This would be the first time in eight years or so in which they have done something like this, so we can only assume it’s not something they decide quickly. The proposals for fee increases are due early next year, so it’ll be at least around spring before we hear anything official.

Free Stuff Alert! Win Airfare and More with Alaska Airlines' Friday Scavenger Hunt

October 9, 2014 at 8:35 AM | by | Comments (0)

Have plans for tomorrow? If not, try to make your way out to Seattle, as Alaska Airlines is hosting a scavenger hunt in and around the city. We would probably play along just for some airline swag or a t-shirt, but what they’re handing out to the winner is even better. To celebrate their order of a whole bunch of brand new Boeing 737-900ERs they are offering up a chance to drive one—at least in the simulator.

The airline will be revealing clues on both Instagram and Twitter beginning at 6am—local time—this Friday. Your job will be to use the hints to find spots in and around Seattle, and if you’re the first to arrive at each location you might just score some time in the Boeing 737 flight simulator.

The TWA Flight Center in New York Will Again Open to the Public for One Day

September 30, 2014 at 12:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

Attention architecture, history, design, aviation, and photography buffs! The TWA Flight Center at New York's JFK Airport will again be open to the public for one day: Saturday, October 11, from 11am to 3:30pm.

The reason? The 12th annual openhousenewyork festival (OHNY), a weekend event that flings open private doors to showcase typically hidden gems of the city over weekend of October 11-12.

Although OHNY began in 2002, the TWA Center has only been welcoming the OHNY public since 2011, and each year is typically considered the last chance to see it in this raw, restored state before developers re-purpose it. Recent plans, now shelved, involved turning it into a hotel, to be added to the property portfolio of hotelier Andre Balazs. His loss is our gain, and access will again be free on October 11.

The Newest Airports to Flip the Switch on Free WiFi are...

September 30, 2014 at 8:48 AM | by | Comments (0)

For whatever reason big airports seem to have big problems when it comes to concourse connectivity. Of course WiFi is available everywhere, but it usually comes with an annoying fee. Some of the big boy airports—like Atlanta—have finally flipped the switch to make things free, and now yet another major airport is finally doing the same.

It’s time for the WiFi to be free for all across Houston, as the airport authority has opened up the network to passengers at both George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport. The rollout is complete over at Hobby Airport, but a couple of the terminals at Bush Intercontinental will need another month or so to work things out—so just be aware.

Private Flights and More: All the Travel Prizes for the 2014 McDonald's Monopoly Game

September 29, 2014 at 1:38 PM | by | Comments (0)

It's that time of the year again. We're not talking about fall foliage, or pumpkin spice lattes, or even Oktoberfest, but McDonald's Monopoly contest time, an annual event at the beginning of autumn designed to keep you ordering french fries and Big Macs throughout the season. The official game takes place from September 30 - October 27 2014.

Every year McDonald's Monopoly involves pulling game pieces off the packaging of select McDonald's menu items and, every year the top prize is a solid $1 million dollars. To be perfectly honest, we'd much rather have some of the lesser prizes, especially this year, what with a private jet trip involved.

Here are the 2014 McDonald's Monopoly prizes, in the travel category:
