15 Destinations on the Rise

by Trip Advisor

1. Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn’s atmospheric Old Town is an enthralling hodgepodge of medieval streets and spires. It’s a small city, and the tourist areas are safe and easily explored on foot. Buy a Tallinn Card if intending to use buses, trolleys or trams. For a look into Tallinn’s past, visit Rocca-al-Mare Open Air Museum’s typical rural Estonian taverns, windmills and watermills, see the onion-domed 1900 cathedral or join the bustle in historic Town Hall Square. St. Olav’s spire was once the tallest in the world.
The Latvian capital, the largest city in the Baltics, is a fascinating mixture of proud Latvian tradition and influences of the various countries that have occupied it. Independent once again since 1991, Riga’s Art Nouveau center has won it UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. Opened up to mass tourism with the advent of budget air travel, Riga’s Old City and its abundance of bars and restaurants can be explored on foot. The New Town is easily reached by an efficient and modern bus and tram network.
The political, scientific, historical, architectural and business center of Russia, Moscow displays the country’s contrasts at their most extreme. The ancient and modern are juxtaposed side by side in this city of 10 million. Catch a metro from one of the ornate stations to see Red Square, the Kremlin, the nine domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, the KGB Museum and other symbols of Moscow’s great and terrible past, then lighten up and shop Boulevard Ring or people watch in Pushkin Square

NBAA2011 an Outstanding Success for the Aviation industry

NBAA’s 64th Annual Meeting & Convention (NBAA2011) closed it’s doors on October 12, a three-day outstanding event in Las Vegas featured exhibits at the Las Vegas Convention Center and a Static Display of Aircraft on Henderson Executive Airport with over 100 Education Sessions and Maintenance and Operations Sessions (M&Os) and over 26,000 business aviation professionals who are interested in seeing and learning about all that is new in the world of business aviation.

National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen thanked Exhibitors and Attendees for what he called “a highly successful show.”

“What we are seeing is that the show is providing real value to the business aviation community, even in these challenging economic times,” Bolen said. “It’s clear that the Convention continues to be a must-attend event for anyone whose passion or profession involves business aviation.”

To illustrate his point, Bolen noted that:

  • The show closed with 26,077 people in attendance, a 7 percent jump in attendance over that for last year’s Convention;
  • The number of Exhibitors at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) was 1,106, a 2 percent increase over last year’s Exhibitor count of 1,086;
  • A total of 101 aircraft were displayed this year, including 85 at the sold-out Static Display of Aircraft at Henderson Executive Airport (HND), five more inside the Las Vegas Convention Center and 11 additional aircraft at the first-ever Outdoor Static Display adjacent to the LVCC.

“By every key measure, this year’s Convention met or exceeded NBAA’s expectations,” Bolen said. “Equally important, the level of enthusiasm we’ve seen from show participants tells us that their expectations were met or exceeded as well.”
