It’s not enough for most of us to get information about sites; we want to be there as well. A new tool to help you find a very special place to stay is the website of the National Trust for Historic Preservation which is found at www.historichotels.org. Heather Taylor is a spokesperson for National Historic Hotels of America and she will share some of the many features that the website has to offer you as you plan your next vacation. ########## This podcast is made possible by the 9th Annual Red Carpet Corridor Festival coming May 2nd & 3rd. The festival traverses 13 Communities from Joliet to Towanda along a 90-mile stretch of Old Route 66 that collectively celebrates the Mother Road. Each town puts together its own events for the weekend, making for a great shopping and sightseeing experience. Gather the family and take a trip down memory lane. Towns include Joliet, Elwood, Wilmington, Braidwood, Godley, Braceville, Gardner, Dwight, Odell, Pontiac, Chenoa, Lexington and Towanda.

  6. Click here to listen... Click here to download… It’s a brand new year for American Road Magazine and for American Road Trip Talk. Normally we use this podcast to introduce you to the people and places behind the stories in the magazine. This time around we are going to cast our gaze in another direction, forward into 2015... in Illinois, the home of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. Along Route 66 in Springfield, Illinois you will find the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2015, which is also the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. Our guest is Chris Wills, a spokesperson for the library and museum, has a whole year full of suggestions for your travels. Get your calendar ready to circle some dates for 2015. You'll find that we even do a little Lincoln myth busting. Visit Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum for more details and information on upcoming events. ********** Pick up a copy of American Road magazine and don't miss another edition!

    The Paper House

    The fall 2014 edition of our magazine had fun with the theme of Rock, Paper, Scissors and included stories about everything from a Wall of Scissors to a Waffle Rock and a Paper House. In this podcast we visit with Edna Beaudoin, who is the current caretaker of the Paper House, which is located in the scenic seaside town of Rockport, MA just north of Boston. What started out as a summer project in the 1920’s became a life long passion for an engineer named Ellis Stenman who used over 100,000 pieces of newsprint to complete the project. His grand niece Edna tends to the family heirloom which is open to visitors from April through October.

  18. Click here to listen... Click here to download Nothing says Christmas like sparkling lights, mistletoe and ... leg lamps! That is, of course, if you are a fan of the 1983 holiday movie, A Christmas Story. The film chronicles a hilarious holiday season during the late 1950’s through the eyes of a child. In one classic scene the father proudly displays his sweepstakes prize, a lamp in the shape of a woman’s leg. The movie was fiction but not the house. The home where the movie was filmed sits in a working class neighborhood of Cleveland, OH. Our guest Steve Sidlecki describes the current state of the house, which is a museum for movie fans and the place where you can get your very own Leg Lamp!
