  • Beyond Boundaries Travel
    Seventeenth-century Mughal emperor Shah Jahan had the Taj Mahal built as a mausoleum for his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It took 20,000 laborers and 17 years to complete. And it’s been one of the world’s great architectural marvels ever since. Though the Taj Mahal is probably the most famous site in India—and definitely the most photographed—it’s just the beginning of what there is to see in the world’s second most populous country. There are mosques and Hindu temples, quiet villages and teeming cities, cutting-edge modernity and ancient traditions. In both of these two tours from Beyond Boundaries Travel, an English-speaking guide leads travelers thorough Dehli, the “Pink City” of Jaipur, and the deserted sandstone city of Fatehpur Sikri.The trips have similar itineraries, but differ slightly on day 5.

Day 1: Upon arrival in Delhi, travelers settle into their luxe accommodations at the Trident Gurgaon. Two onsite bars and three restaurants serving fare from India and around the world should help you recover from the long flight.Day 2: Spend the morning in Old Delhi, where elaborate mosques stand beside makeshift shopping stalls and rickshaws whizz by. In the afternoon, a trip to New Delhi includes stops at Humanyun’s tomb and the 210-foot high Qutub Minar, built in the 12th century. Dinner is served on the lawns of the Sanskriti Museum after a walk through the Museum of Everyday Art.Day 3: After breakfast at the hotel, board the motorcoach for a scenic five-hour drive to Agra. The Taj Mahal is, of course, the main attraction, but the city is also home to Agra Fort, a red sandstone fortress surrounded by high walls and a moat. Overnight accommodations are provided by the Trident Agra.Day 4: A one-hour ride brings you to Fatehpur Sikri, the deserted sandstone city. In 1585, English traveler Ralph Fitch described this former metropolis as “larger than London and more populous.” Today, it’s a ghost town: the palaces, mosques, and public buildings here are all empty except for tourists appreciating the craftsmanship and diversity of the architecture. Day 5 (April/May tour only): Guests enjoy one morning and one evening game drive through the Ranthambore National Park, one of India’s largest protected wildlife refuges. The land was once the private hunting area of the Maharajas of Jaipur, but today it’s a prime spot for snapping photos of Bengal tigers, recognized by scientists as the most photogenic big cats thanks to their slimming vertical stripes.Day 5 (September tour); Day 6 (April/May tour): The day begins with breakfast and a three-hour drive to Jaipur, often called “The Pink City” because most of its buildings are made of rose-colored sandstone. The tour pays a visit to Hawa Mahal, a five-story palace with more than 950 tiny windows carved from intricate lattice work, and the Jantar Mantar, an 18th-century astronomical observation site where huge stone instruments were used to track the movements of the stars and planets. With its many bazaars, Jaipur is a haven for collectors and crafters, who can find traditional cloth prints, jewelry, and enameling work known as meenakari. Day 6 (September tour); Day 7 (April/May tour): In the morning, the motorcoach leaves for Amber, an 11th-century fort and palace complex known for its marriage of Hindu and Muslim architectural styles. The day ends with a quick flight from Jaipur to Delhi to connect with international flights.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

  • Nightmare on Valley Street
    One fateful day 24 years ago, a group of doomed souls got lost amid the shadows of 22 acres of wooded land and were never found. Each year following that, more and more people met the same fate. Dayton Scream Park dares guests to gather their courage and walk?or run?down the haunted trail where these souls were last seen, confronting characters from horror movies and being chased by four-wheelers that were deprived of their afternoon nap. During the 30-minute adrenaline-filled adventure, participants encounter more than 30 scenes and more than 40 live monsters that will soon join their nightmares. For wee ones and those who would rather smile than scream, Dayton Scream Park also hosts Hillbilly Hayrides that set out in the crisp autumn air, while the sun is still duct taped to the sky. In addition to free parking, the amenities include onsite concessions for fortifying the strength of those who have fainted.

  • Dayton's Haunted Butcher House
    Winning best haunted house in Active Dayton's 2011 Best of Dayton awards and lauded by the bloggers of Ohio Valley Haunts for a "very loud soundtrack [that] assaults the senses in accompaniment to the various atrocities," the designers of Dayton's Haunted Butcher House horrify guests with new macabre spectacles each year. Characters, such as clowns wielding meat cleavers and the undead springing forth from oversize jack-in-the-boxes, are just some of the haunts that have rattled visitors in years past on the unguided tour. To further heighten fear levels, the building itself becomes another character, confounding the living with moving floors, strobe lights, and mysterious voices that predict another year of slow economic growth.
