The tale of Bonnie & Clyde was resurrected last night in Part 1 of a new TV miniseries about the real-life couple and the infamous crime spree that cost them their lives nearly 80 years ago.
The continued fascination with history's most wanted couple keeps Bonnie & Clyde tourism going strong in Texas and Louisiana.
In Dallas, TX, local Freda Dillard gives a four-hour Bonnie & Clyde Tour that includes the location where they first met, Bonnie's former workplace Hargraves Cafe, and the Grapevine location where they murdered two highway patrolmen. The group tour, which can accommodate up to 57 people, costs $240.

By now, your Halloween costume should be packed away for another year. If you don't want to let go of the spooky holiday just yet, however, the hot television show American Horror Story - Coven is just gearing up for another adventure of the supernatural kind. This time all of the witchcraft action is set in one of America's eeriest cities, New Orleans.
While some of the buildings are re-purposed as sets of the show, a few actually have stories behind them. For example, Madame Lalaurie's House of Horrors is actually known as the Lalaurie Mansion, named after its original owner with a similarly sordid history. Thus, the tour company Roadtrippers has put together a self-guided tour for American Horror Story fans heading for Nola. The AHS tour is fully mapped out with details of each stop already pinned. If you're not that creative to workout your own roadtrip, you can browse the list of recommendations.
Tickets for the live tapings of Saturday Night Live are notoriously hard to get.

There is about to be a zombie invasion in New York City.
Just in time for the Sunday's season 4 premiere of The Walking Dead, The Walking Dead Escape is headed to NYC on Saturday, Oct. 12.
For this one-night only experience, The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will be transformed into a post-apocalyptic obstacle course that "survivors" will navigate while "walkers" chase them. The event was become a staple at San Diego Comic-Con but this is the first time the haunted house/cardio workout has been held in New York.
This fall Mythbusters fans will have a chance to see myths get busted or confirmed in person when the show's co-hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman hit the road for the Behind The Myths Tour.
The tour will visit more than 30 cities across the country where the Mythbusters team will conduct on-stage experiments with the audience. According the show's website, “fans will join Jamie and Adam on stage and assist in their mind-twisting and not always orthodox approach to science.”

The winners of last night's three big Emmy categoriesBreaking Bad for Best Drama, Modern Family for Best Comedy, and Behind the Candelabra for Best Mini-Series or Movie#&151;aren't just good television, they're also travel inspiration.
Breaking Bad was filmed on location in Albuquerque, NM and some of the show's iconic locations are now tourist destinations. The most popular spot on any Breaking Bad tour has to be the White house, located at 3828 Piermont Dr NE, Albuquerque, followed by a stop at The Candy Lady for some (completely legal) "blue meth."

Downton Abbey just started its fourth season last night—at least overseas—and here at home the television series was mostly snubbed during last evening’s Emmy Awards presentation. They only brought home one piece of hardware, as the show scored a trophy for outstanding music composition. Regardless of what the award show says we know you still love the show, so that’s why we wanted to let you know that you can now visit Downton Abbey.
It sounds like it’s a temporary thing, so you better free up your calendar as soon as possible. Highclere Castle—that’s where a lot of the show is filmed—will be open to those willing to shell out the cash, as it’s going to be available to check out as part of a little bit of a vacation package.

The Simpsons—in ride form—have been a presence at Universal Studios Orlando for quite some time, but just recently the rest of the Simpson gang finished moving into the amusement park.
It might not be as overwhelming in theme when compared to Harry Potter’s place, but Homer, Bart, Marge, and Lisa have some pretty respectable new digs. Familiar music welcomes visitors into their town, and soon enough park-goers run into retail and restaurants all developed with Springfield in mind.
Apparently Oprah Winfrey just couldn't get enough of Australia on her last trip down under, because word on the street is that she's organizing another massive trip to film some shows and bring her feel-good network to a new country.
Last time we saw the TV star surprise her audience with a free trip to Oz was back in 2010. After all of the screaming, crying and general craziness, 300 audience members packed their bags hopped on a Qantas plane and crossed the equator for a memorable trip with Oprah.

This Sunday, the final episode of the first season of Bravo’s Princesses: Long Island will air. Although the embarrasingly addictive show only had ten episodes, that was plenty of time to see a wide swath of Long Island.
Should you find yourself in Jewish Princess withdrawal while waiting to find out if the show gets renewed, perhaps you can check out one of these spots that you saw on the series?
With the premiere of Breaking Bad's final eight episodes right around the corner, the show's cast and crew will be in New York City next week to celebrate and say goodbye.
