This edition of The Travel Guys brings us to week five of our Mystery Spot Contest. If you guess this week’s spot, you’ll win a $50 gift card for Rudy’s Hideaway Restaurant, a Sacramento institution. If you have registered your e-mail with us, this week’s winner will join the other finalists in the Great Mystery Spot Finals, live in studio, next month. That winner goes to Hawaii or New York City, five nights and airfare for two people. Plus, those who register in advance get an extra advance clue.
Submit Your Guess[Sorry, this contest has ended. Tune in next week for another chance to win!]
We’ll have the first clue after the Travel News segment at the beginning of the show, and more clues and your chance to guess will follow.
Our guests are Ed Perkins, writer for SmarterTravel.com, longtime distinguished consumer travel reporter and a frequent addition to our show; and Erik Wolf, President of the International Culinary Tourism Assoication.
Ed is about to embark on the “trip of a lifetime,” an around the world journey that incorporates some of his favorite spots from 30 years of consumer travel reporting. Read about the concept here.
Erik alerts us to how some cities are taxing those you dine in restaurants. Some pretty alarming numbers. And if other cities can levy these taxes, why hasn’t Sacramento done the same to finance, oh say a sports and entertainment complex?
Plus Mark’s “trip from hell” back from Buffalo last week, and tips for getting through the Sacramento airport a little faster this summer. All that as we make you a smarter traveler and have a little fun on a surprisingly hot Sunday April afternoon with The Travel Guys.
