Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar

 

A visit to San Francisco isn’t complete without experiencing The Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar. Yes it’s a bar, but it’s also a restaurant that children won’t want to miss. The Pan-Pacific Rim menu is tasty but what makes the place so special, so impossible to miss, is the artificial thunderstorms that come on the hour while a full band plays on a boat in a moat. You’ll be blown away as the kids sip soda and you enjoy one of the Tonga’s famous Mai Tais.

Mobile Entertainment Segway Tours

 

Yes, segways are those electric two-wheeled standup things that require no pedaling. Now from April to mid-November, get a two and a half hour tour that promises to be smoother sailing than Gilligan’s. The Mobile Entertainment company takes small groups on more than 5 mile riverfront tours, all from segways. See the beautiful Minneapolis skyline, the Mississippi River and more, all put into context with their Magical History Tour spanning 12,000 years. A chunk of cash and attention are required, but it’s not otherwise strenuous. Helmet-wearing will be required.

German Village

 

A highway bridge over Interstate 70 is all that separates the German Village Historic District from downtown Columbus, but as one looks east from the interstate, the difference between old and new is glaring. A 20+ story structure sits just north of the interstate bridge, and just south, in German Village, no structure is higher than three stories. Five blocks south, the spire of St. Mary Church stands 197’ off the sidewalk and towers over everything around it. Structures and sidewalks are orange masonry, and many streets (about half) are still brick pavers.
