If you are looking for a nice, fun gateway to a great Jersey Shore beach vacation then this is a place you should stop by. Here you could find the largest amusement piers in the world. With over 100 park rides and attractions, there will be something to make every one happy. You’ll be able to choose from games such as “fool the guesser”, hi-striker, softball pitch, ring toss, fortune wheel, darts, pool, and many more, along with a bunch of arcades and slot machines. You could keep winning points that can be redeemed for beach towels, toys, cd players, TVs, and more. My favorite attractions are the waterparks. The Ocean Oasis waterpark is a little bit more adult oriented with amenities such as cabanas & huts, hammocks, massage therapy services, concierge service and more. Nevertheless it also has some great family activity programming. The children could play in the Bonsai Beach area while the adults could relax in the Water Lilies or take a plunge on the Shotgun Falls drop slides. There is something for everyone. The same thing can be said about the Raging Waters theme park. Shipwreck Shoals, Rocket Raft, Speed Slides, Fountain Pool, Sky ponds Journey, Rope Swing and many more. Don’t they all just spell “fun” to you? You will not want to go home. Unfortunately, your body will eventually get tiered.If you’re looking for a hotel in order to have your entire vacation planned around Morey’s Piers, you could check out their website. They offer a variety of information on fun things to do in New Jersey such as dining, group events and of course in depth detail on their amusement rides and waterparks.

The question refers to the word Hawai’i (not the islands themselves). It is a Hawaiian word derived from Sawaiki, the believed Proto-Polynesian language. The word itself has a reconstructed meaning of “homeland”.Of course, down the line the island group was perhaps named Hawaii for that reason, because to its settlers it became their new homeland, Hawai’i.
There are a lot of things to do in New York. It is a metropolitan area filled with history, culture and joy of life. There are so many places to see that not even a week will be enough. So you should always concentrate on the main visiting spots. Obviously everyone heard of the Statue of Liberty, and trust me, it is worth seeing. It is quite a climb up to the top (I’ve had my share of climbing), but it is worth it once you get there. Same with the Empire State Building building, but you will be carried up there by an elevator instead. I remember when I first saw it I was amazed by this architectural monument. The view from the top is also fantastic. I had the craziest experience up there. Anyone, remember “Sleepless in Seattle”? Well, that morning I separated from my parents and just like in the movie, we met up there about an hour before closing time. Of course, I was not lost or as young as the boy from the movie, but still it was a nice story.Anyhow, back to the Big Apple. You shouldn’t miss the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You can see thousand of years of history, all under one roof. From the Neolithic period until the American Revolution, from Greek art to modern art, there is something for everyone.You should definitely go take a walk on the famous Broadway and maybe even catch one of their famous plays. Go take a stroll down Central Park, Little Italy, Chinatown, Times Square and many, many other beautiful and exciting places and cultural spots. If you want to catch your share of celebrities, go to the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.For additional information and online travel guides you can visit “Trusted Tours & Attractions”. Don’t forget to sign up for their newsletter for a chance to win a $150 iTunes gift card.P.S. If you are renting a car you could also drive to Boston (around 4 and 1/2 hours).

It was a pivotal place in the birth of America and its style, atmosphere and people invoke that passion in its visitors.The city is relatively small, easy to navigate, but nevertheless there are a lot of things to do in Boston. If you are a museum kind of a person then you can’t miss the Museum of Science, the MIT Museum why notâ€¦visit the Sports Museum to see New England’s sports heritage. If you want a taste of history you can’t miss the JFK Presidential Library and Museum or seeing the 16 historic sites (Old State House, Trinity Church, Granary Burying Ground, etc) of the colonial Boston.The Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum, the Institute of Contemporary art and the three Harvard Art Museums can’t be missed for someone who appreciates art.If you would like to take a stroll through the city you can’t miss the Waterfront District (you can see where the Bostonians dropped the tea in 1768), the Cambridge area (and check out Harvard and MIT), the North End (Italian district) and the Theater District (restaurants, bars, pubs and theaters all mingling with each other).To speed things up you can take advantage of the “old town trolley tours” for a very informative, fun and unique experience.

For those of you who have not attended many rodeos in the past, NRF stands for the National Finals Rodeo. It is the premier championship rodeo event in the US. Wrangles Jeans is the sponsor for it, so you might have heard it as Wrangles NFR. Anyways, as I was saying it is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) rodeo even in the entire country. You could say that NFR is for rodeo what the World Cup is for soccer or the Super Bowl is for American football. The event takes place over a span of 10 days and there’s something for everyone. They have bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie down roping, bull riding and quite a few other events. Just being there and watching the agility of the riders is just absolutely amazing. Any of these wonderful events can take you by surprise if this is your first time attending a rodeo, but nevertheless you are taken by surprise in a good way. This big event is held in December in Las Vegas, at the Thomas & Mack Cente. If you are interested, you should already start looking for National Rodeo Finals tickets because they can get sold out pretty fast. My friend went two years ago to this event and he said that any seat in the 105, 106 and 107 section are quite good, but then again, pretty much any seat in the house will offer you an unique experience.

As you might have guessed, it was in the United States. Tall buildings were called skyscrapers as early as the 1880s. They were built on a steel structure and had central heating, electrical pumps and lifts. In 1890, Major William Le Baron Jenney and Louis Sullivan built the first skyscraper in Chicago. This was the Home Insurance Building. It had ten floors, including the basement. Two floors were added in 1891. Skyscrapers could house so many people that they changed the way people lived and worked.
