Unprepared travelers are prone to rookie mistakes, such as forgetting to bring pants or slapping a monarch with the left hand rather than the right. Glean worldwide knowledge with today’s Groupon to the Los Angeles Travel & Adventure Show, held on Saturday, January 14, and Sunday, January 15, at the Long Beach Convention Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get two one-day admissions (a $18 value).
- For $16, you get four one-day admissions (a $36 value).<p>
Each Groupon is good for one day of admission; you can purchase an additional Groupon to gain admission both days. Children aged 16 and younger get in for free.
The Travel & Adventure show dishes up a smorgasbord of globetrotting attractions, highlighting destinations around the world with cultural performances, regional cuisine, and hands-on activities. Shimmy your way to the Global Beats Stage to survey the rhythmic landscape of the globe and explore exotic songs and dances plucked from paradisiacal parties. To experience travel with more than just your eyes, ignite your tongue with the Fiery Foods Challenge, then subdue mouth steam with a swim in the free Scuba pool. Other athletic setups include an indoor rock climbing wall and zip-line that whisks riders across the show floor and into small town in Iowa. Cultural spectators can become participants with hair braids and henna tattoos at the Cultural Pavilion, and would-be wayfarers can glean worldly wisdom from dozens of travel experts and tour operators.
Featured presenters include the Travel Channel’s Samantha Brown, expeditionist extraordinaire and penner of eponymous guidebooks Pauline Frommer. Book signings and vigorous handshakes follow each presentation.
