Looking to do something a little different on your vacation? I just wrote and article for Gadling.com a travel site. Here's a treaser and a link to the entire article:
Strapped for vacation cash? Spend a day with the dead. "Tombstone tourism" is on the rise. See fabulous artwork, enjoy nature and get within six feet of some of your favorite celebrities. Better yet, admission is always free. It's a grave-cation!
Did you know that before Disneyland opened in 1955, Forest Lawn Memorial Park cemetery in Glendale was the number one tourist destination in the Los Angeles area? Or that the popularity of Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn as a recreation site led to the establishment of Central Park in Manhattan in 1858?
Gina Misiroglu at REDROOM put me in touch with the folks at Gadling.com As I'm sure all of you know it's tough times for "content providers". Gadling allows me to put a link on the my article that directs viewers to my Redroom page and in turn helps promote my books. If you like the story please post a comment. Enough comments and they'll want more stories from me.
