Travel Trails By Martin B. Deutsch for 1962
November 1: A PERIMETER OF VACATION PLEASURE: BERMUDA, NASSAU, JAMAICA
The resort islands of Bermuda, Nassau and Jamaica, though separated by hundreds of miles, are part of a distinct geographical pattern. From north to south in a shallow half circle, with Bermuda at the top, the Bahamas in the middle and Jamaica at the bottom, they form a perimeter of vacation pleasure along the southeastern shores of the United States.
October 1: THE LOW-FARE LURE OF PUERTO RICO AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS
The 1,700 or so miles that separate New York City and Puerto Rico's capital may be flown for just under three cents per mile. Such low airfares make it possible for visitors to enjoy a moderate-priced, exciting and easy-to-reach vacation in Puerto Rico and the nearby Virgin Islands at prices competitive with those of a similar vacation at a mainland resort like Miami Beach.
September 1: TRAVEL TRAILS
Kentucky is one of the most interest-filled of the fifty states, home to both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis. Also, an update on Maryland right now. And more details on the new group steamship fares across the Atlantic.
August 1: VACATION OPTIONS ALL OVER THE U.S.
We take a look at a random selection of vacation destinations, hopping around the map from Nevada and Arizona out west, to Wisconsin in the Midwest, then down south to Florida, and finally up north to New England. Our getaway guide begins in the always popular Las Vegas.
July 1: SIGHTSEEING IN MEXICO
The country's first identifiable "tourist," the Spanish Conquistador, Herman Cortes, reached the capital city of the Aztec Empire in 1519, where he was amazed by the beauty, luxury, orderliness and engineering feats of the Indian civilization. Some 450 years later, 700,000 tourists from the U.S visit our neighbors to the south annually. Things have changed, but Mexico is still filled with beauty, scenic wonders, engineering and architectural marvels and a host of other attractions.
May 1: THE MAGNIFICENT NORTHWEST
The World's Fair in Seattle this year is a sleeper. Advance inquiries and bookings for hotel accommodations and admissions have exceeded even the fondest hopes of the city and state fathers. When the exposition closes, between ten and fifteen million visitors will have made the acquaintance of the Fair, Seattle, the State of Washington and, quite possibly, British Columbia.
