The Week in Travel (9/28/12)

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

“Let me help you with that”

*Sometimes you just want need a young man to lather up the sunscreen on hard-to-reach spots.  Going beyond the complimentary shampoo and conditioner, hotels are enticing with free amenities like a personal tanning butler in South Beach, a pet goldfish in San Francisco, and a Rolls-Royce in Beverly Hills.  (via USA Today)

*According to Claire Danes, Israelis “work very hard, worry very hard and play hard and well.”  The recent Emmy winner talks about filming “Homeland” in Tel Aviv, and poses for photos throughout Israel’s party capital.  (via NY Times)

*Results are in:  more international visitors are coming to the United States and UK gay men travel twice as much as their straight countrymen.  (via eTurboNews and Unicorn Booty)

*You can now leave your flask at home, Princess.  For the first time since opening forty years ago, Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will serve wine and beer.  (via USA Today)

*Explore the coral reefs of Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii without getting wet.  Google launches underwater Street View as a new virtual map of the oceans.  (via Boing Boing)

*The phrase “Nice rose bush!” can have several meanings when 600 people explore nature au naturel during clothing-optional days at Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury, England.  (via NY Times)

Key West: Island House 2-4-1 Vacations

It is time to strip off your winter coat (and shirt, and pants, and…) and cash-in on two tropical vacations for the price of one.  The Island House in Key West—the historic, men-only, clothing-optional resort—is once again offering their “Buy Four Nights and Get Three Free” promotion.

To qualify, purchase four nights at the resort before June 30, 2012, and get three free weeknights between July 12 and October 19, 2012, subject to availability.  The Conch Republic (as Key West is commonly known) is hot in any season:  enjoy a little winter warmth, a little summer sizzle.

With its slogan of “One Human Family,” the city of Key West, celebrates us all.  Come as you are, and join the colorful community of artists, intellectuals, eccentrics, natives and tourists who spice up the southernmost city in the continental United States.

At the Island House, you can season the spiciness to your particular taste.   Enjoy the outdoor café and bar anytime of the day or night; work up a sweat at the gym, steamroom or sauna; and cool off with a refreshing swim—fully clothed, fully naked, or however you are most comfortable.

So gentlemen, this winter, trade the snow for a little sweat, and trade the cold for a little…conch.
