ROMANCE ON THE ROAD
Washington DC -- American travelers, especially married couples, say they love to get away to rekindle the romantic feelings in their relationships, according to a new survey released today by Travel Industry Association of America.( TIA).
According to the TIA Travel Poll, a monthly survey of 1,500 U.S. adults conducted in January, 61.8 million American adults (31% of U.S. adults) said they took a romantic getaway in the past 12 months. The average number of romantic vacations taken in 1997 was 2.5 and the total number of romantic getaway person trips was 155 million. A romantic getaway is defined as a trip with a spouse or other love interest without children to rekindle the romantic feelings in the relationship.
Of those people who took a romantic getaway in the last 12 months, one-half of romantic travelers only took one romantic trip (51%) and one-fourth took two romantic trips in the past year (26%). One in ten (10%) kept love alive with 5 or more getaways a year.
"Today couples are working longer and harder. Often their free time is dominated with kids, chores and outside activities," said William S. Norman president and CEO of the Travel Industry Association. "Quick vacations have become the perfect way for Americans to get away from their daily hassles and rejuvenate their love lives at the same time."
Romantic travelers without children in their households took more romantic getaways in the past 12 months than romantic travelers with children (3.1 vs. 1.9 trips, respectively).
Visiting a city for dining and entertainment purposes is the number one type of romantic getaway taken by Americans last year. City vacations were popular with 74% of those surveyed. Getaways to beaches and/or lakes were ranked second at 44%, gambling vacations were ranked third at 21%, golf/tennis vacations and cruises were tied at 12% and skiing trips were popular with 7% of romantic travelers.
Interestingly, men (54%) are more likely than women (46%) to view their vacation
trips as romantic getaways. Romantic travelers are more likely to be married
and have higher incomes but are less likely to be single when compared to other
adults who have not taken a romantic getaway in the last 12 months.
Romantic Travelers All Other U.S. Adults
Men 54% 45%
Women 46% 55%
Married 78% 59%
Single 17% 22%
Divorced/Widowed/Separated 5% 19%

Branson hits some high-class notes
By Kitty Bean Yancey, USA TODAY
BRANSON, Mo. — Past Billy Bob's Dairyland on pickup-truck-clogged
Country Boulevard, across from an elevated go-kart track, Japanese koi glide
serenely in a rock pond at the entrance to the discreet beige building that
houses Andy Williams' Moon River Theatre. (Fare Compare: How much will it cost
to get to Branson?)
Staying in style: Big Cedar Lodge has golf, horseback riding, fishing, water sports and spa.
Inside, the airy lobby with blond oak floors is lined with millions of dollars of original works by Willem de Kooning, David Hockney, Henry Moore and more. Part of the
76-year-old crooner's personal collection, they're on view for free when the theater is open.
Museum-quality modern art isn't something you'd expect to find in this tour-bus, tank-top destination known for mass-market family attractions and hee-haw entertainment. But behind Branson's Hicksville facade — the stage shows by country stars whose heyday was 30 years ago, the Elvis impersonators and biscuit-and-gravy greasefests that lured 7 million visitors last year — are amusements, lodgings and eateries where even a city slicker with highfalutin tastes can be in hog heaven.
In fact, this southern Missouri town of 6,500 in the shadow of the Ozark Mountains is trying to attract a broader spectrum of tourists than the seniors and families who've made it a top U.S. tourist destination ever since aging Nashville stars began opening theaters here in the early '80s.
"People come and expect to find just hillbillies," says local developer Steve Critchfield, sipping a gin and tonic on the deck of the Candlestick Inn.
He's a partner in the upscale restaurant and is involved in a project to transform part of the city's downtown into a $300 million waterside convention, shopping and dining destination à la San Antonio's Riverwalk. The first phase of Branson Landing is due in 2006. But what does Branson currently offer the vacationer in search of the hip, happening or elegant? Here's what turned up on a trawl for the town's unsung attractions one recent weekend:
3 p.m. Saturday: Williams' 2,054-seat theater is closed until September, when he and Ann-Margret team for an extravaganza that includes his signature Moon River. Today, he has popped in to discuss his art collection.
L.A. stylish in a black T-shirt and pants and blue-tinted sunglasses, he receives a guest in his office/dressing room that looks as if it could be in Architectural Digest.
(Indeed, his theater has been showcased on its pages.) Surrounding the piano and Italian caramel leather sofas are works by de Kooning, Picasso, Basquiat and Miró.
When the eternally suave Williams opened his theater in 1992, "everything here was country," he says. "But I decided I wasn't going to come down here and be something other than what I am." A collector since age 19 or 20, he thought his fans would appreciate his art and wanted to share it.Branson's franchise-lined Country Boulevard Strip "is kind of honky-tonk," he concedes. But farther afield, the area's charms include "countryside that's beautiful, if you like outdoor stuff."
He praises the aspen-dotted hills, the streams and lakes stocked with trout and bass. His golfing haunts include Branson Creek, a Tom Fazio-designed beauty that's been rated one of the nation's 100 best public courses by Golf Digest.
As for dining, the Candlestick Inn and lesser-known Zoey's Mediterranean Cuisine are among his local favorites. But don't expect big-city, fine-dining airs, he warns.
"Everything is more casual here."
If you go ...
If you shudder at garish billboards, rows of motels, souvenir shops and fast-food restaurants, much of Branson will be off-putting. But the area still has enticements for those turned off by mass-market tourism.
Getting there: Branson is just under an hour's drive from the Springfield/Branson Regional Airport; carriers include American, Northwest and United Express.
Staying in style: Big Cedar Lodge has golf, horseback riding, fishing, water sports and spa. The rustic-elegant private log cabins with kitchens.
Bargain hunters might check into the Branson Hotel Bed and Breakfast Inn in a 1903 building in historic downtown. Lodging in antique-decorated rooms and a delicious breakfast such as baked pear and eggs Benedict, plus complimentary homemade cookies, bottled water and soda.
Fine dining: Sunday's all-you-can-eat champagne brunch at Big Cedar Lodge is a local institution. Homemade pita bread and creative Greek-influenced dishes are draws at Zoey's Mediterranean Cuisine. Impressive views, a nice wine list and fare such as South African lobster and Colorado lamb are served at the Candlestick Inn.
Bar hopping: Branson performers belly up at funky Tsunami and dance at Wildwood Flower/Ain't Misbehavin'.
6:30 p.m.: Since Williams clearly is a man of taste, a drive to Zoey's out-of-town location on Highway 265 seems like a good idea.
It is. Inside the unassuming white building just past a campground is white-tablecloth dining on creative dishes. Tonight's specials are sofrito (veal) in vermouth and capers and grouper stuffed with feta, spinach and roasted red peppers.
The pita bread and its balsamic dipping sauce are made daily by chef George Ioannides, who owns Zoey's with wife Debra. He also cooks with herbs from their garden. Practically all the stars who play Branson come here.
"People tell us, 'We eat all over the world and this is the best,' " Debra says. Zoey's is named for their 6-year-old daughter.
8 p.m.: Time to seek out an unexpected offering among Branson's four dozen Saturday-night shows. Cirque premiered a month ago and aims to attract a wider audience than those drawn by country classics or corn-pone comedy. Tonight, a troupe of jugglers and acrobats enthrall the near-capacity crowd at the Remington Theatre with a fantastical tale of an enchanted jungle. There's no dialogue — just Cirque du Soleil-style glow-in-the-dark costumes and dazzling aerial feats performed by European gymnasts to thumping music. Adult tickets cost less than half what you'd pay to see similar fare in Las Vegas. The finale has tongues wagging: two spray-painted male acrobats in no more than tight briefs. It's considered risqué for Branson.
10:30 p.m.: There aren't a lot of bars in this family destination that's more popular with teetotaling Bible readers than hell-raising party animals. But here in a strip shopping center, Tsunami is a happening place. A song by hot Tex-Mex group Los Lonely Boys plays on the sound system before the band sets up. Musicians, singers and dancers — obviously regulars — drift in to greet the bartender.
"This is Branson's Cheers," says Sharon Steidler, a striking brunette in short shorts. She has worked in Las Vegas and is a backup singer in the Legends in Concert show, which features impersonators of greats such as Whitney Houston and Elvis. Branson show people often work six days a week, she says. So they need to unwind.
After a Bud Lite, she's ready for her next Saturday night stop — "You've got to hear Bucky Heard!" — and heads for her car to show the way.
12:30 a.m.: The 1,200-square-foot dance floor of the Wildwood Flower/Ain't Misbehavin' nightclub is packed. Grandmas and grandpas and middle-aged guys in cowboy hats boogie happily alongside twentysomethings dancing barefoot.
The $3 chardonnay isn't up to chic New York or L.A. club standards, but there's more genuine fervor and fun in the air.
Onstage, Heard is dripping with sweat and putting his considerable vocal might into Play That Funky Music. Backing him are other members of the Horndawgs, a band composed of a dozen musicians from various theaters. Heard, who plays Blues Brother John Belushi in the Legends show, has his left arm in a sling. It was injured during one of the 1,500 cartwheels he turns onstage yearly.
The Horndawgs play Saturdays after their tightly scripted theater stints. Now they're free to jam, drink onstage, sing racy lyrics. "This is my fun, my release," Heard says during a break as fans line up to kiss and compliment him. "Here we can let our hair down."
11:30 a.m. Sunday: The driveway of Big Cedar Lodge snakes past forests with twittering birds and views of Table Rock Lake. This former getaway of a railroad magnate, 9 miles
south of Branson, became a resort, with stables, spa, Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, rustic-elegant lodge and private log cabins — including one where George and Barbara Bush once stayed.
Similar in setting and ambience to an exclusive Adirondack retreat, it boasts a big-production Sunday champagne brunch in the beamed main dining room. Oysters and shrimp. Salmon en croûte. Crab/mango/gorgonzola salad. A table groaning with gooey desserts.
"A lot of our guests go into Branson, but they don't want to stay there," says Shari Beckley, Big Cedar marketing manager. Some never leave the 800-acre property.
Up on the scenic golf course, Dan Irwin of Gilroy, Calif., is finishing a round with family members celebrating his in-laws' 50th anniversary. He is used to paying for 18 holes; here it costs less. "This is a bargain, an amazing place," he says. "I'm telling all my buddies about it."
6:30 p.m.: As the sun starts to go down over Lake Taneycomo outside the Candlestick Inn's picture windows, Steve and Pam Critchfield are explaining how seven years ago there was not much "fine dining" in Branson. Over tuna carpaccio with gingered slaw and Colorado lamb, Steve says when they moved here from Wichita, he had to reassure friends and relatives that "there's more than shows here." Says Pam: "A lot of Branson has stepped up to a new level."
10 p.m.: Away from the post-show traffic jam on the Strip, Tsunami is filling up. The bartender sets down a drink with a "here you go, honey."
A half-hour later, stage makeup scrubbed off, Steidler strolls in. Cirque cast members order refreshment. The mood is laid-back and friendly. It feels like the perfect nightcap to a weekend of unexpected pleasures.

The Chandler Arts Commission is requesting proposals from artists interested in the development of a Public Art component at the Fire and Police Community Facilities Complex, to be incorporated into the exterior public egress or park settings surrounding the complex. The community facility is within a larger park complex called Desert Breeze Park, including a lakeside Park view, containing a children's water park, railway and a Hummingbird garden. The proposal is unlimited in scope or medium. Project is open to artists nationally. Open to individual artists or artist teams. Site plans are available on request.
The Arts & Science Council Public Art Program and the Public Art Commission, which administer the 1% for art ordinance for Mecklenburg County, are issuing a request for qualifications from artists experienced with projects using text. The new County Courthouse, located at the intersection of McDowell and 4th Streets, will serve as a monumental entry to the Government District from the east. The eight story building will feature a corner portico and continuous covered walkway, which will be the main pedestrian entry to this urban sector.
Architects for the facility now under construction are Kallman, McKinnell and Wood, Boston, and Schenkel/Schultz of Charlotte. The completion date for the facility is late spring, 2006. (check). In addition, the Charlotte/Mecklenburg Planning Commission oversees design guidelines for the Center City, and gives special attention to enriching the pedestrian experience. To that end, Mecklenburg County is requesting that the Public Art Program and an artist take the lead, research and implement a text project to enhance the pedestrian experience along the corridor.
One strategy would be to collaborate with a recognized poet or writer to create the quotations. The oversight and costs for implementation of the project would also be part of the artist’s budget.
The building is to be faced with Valders limestone which is the material to receive the text. It is anticipated that the selected artist will present a proposal as to the number of panels that can be inscribed based upon cost.
Selection Process and Art Project Timeline: An Artist Selection Panel comprised of members of the Public Art Commission and the Courthouse Task Force, a stakeholder group guiding development of new facility, will meet to review applications. Selection will take place during summer, 2004. The project will begin during the summer, 2004 and continue to completion prior to building dedication in fall, 2006.
Project Budget: $100,000
Please contact Jean P. Greer – firstname.lastname@example.org for application process.
