Travel News For October- Attractions!

I just came across some very interesting news for October. You might want to keep these in mind as you travel about Pauper style this month.

A 7 year, 91 million dollar expansion at the Denver Art Museum opens to the public on October 7. Designed by the World Trade Center site's master planner Daniel Liseskind, the angular, titanium clad building was inspired by the jagged peaks of the Rocklies. You can see it here:

Carib Aviation has launched a new company called Dominican Air Taxi, with inter-island service between Dominica and either St. Lucia or Antigua. The 50 minute flights cost $79 each way.

A historic partnership between the Musee du Louvre in Paris and Atlanta's High Museum of Art begins October 14 when the "Kings As Collectors" exhibit opens. Over the next three years, hundreds of paintings, sculptures, and antiquities from the Louvre will be exhibited in the U.S. for the first time.

George Washington's Mount Vernon estate has undergone a $100 million expansion. A new museum with six galleries will show his family's personal items like furniture, books, china, and clothing--- many of which will be on dsiplay at Mount Vernon for the first time. Highlights of the visitors center include an exact replica of the mansion in miniature (furniture and all) and a stained glass window depicting key events in the president's life. Both buildings are scheduled to open on October 27.
