The Week in Travel (8/3/12)

The world of travel moves fast!   Let’s keep up–together.   On Fridays,  Traveling IQ curates the highlights from the past week:

*Look truly refreshed after your next vacation.  No, like really refreshed.  Like, you-can’t-move-your-forehead refreshed.  The Four Seasons in Austin has partnered with Westlake Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, offering guests services such as Botox, chemical peels, and skin tightening. Next year, new options will include breast augmentation and liposuction. (via USA Today)

*These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do in New York City.  For now, NYC’s Bike-Sharing Program, which was supposed to launch this summer, has been delayed due to a software glitch.  No new official launch date has been announced.  (via New York Magazine)

*It’s easier than ever to stay toned during your travels.  New hotel programs lend you work-out videos, running shoes and pedometers, while airports offer walking paths and yoga studios.  (via New York Times)

*New York City is the theatrical top.  According to the World Cities Culture Report 2012, NYC hosted over 43,000 theatre shows and 6,000 dance performances to claim the #1 spot in each category.  London, Paris and Tokyo also ranked high in performance arts output.  (via The Stage)

*Extra cheese?  The owner of the “world’s largest collection of pizza memorabilia”–who has a tattoo of himself holding a pizza slice on his back–is planning to open a pizza restaurant and museum in Philadelphia.  (via NPR)
