From Main Street to the Road Less Traveled 

One of the best things about living where we do, when it comes to wandering, our backyard is our oyster. From the mountains to the desert to the sea, everything is just a short drive or flight away. Join us as we explore the USA in search of unique experiences along the way.  Or let’s venture across the pond to taste and sip our way through Tuscany or experience Ireland’s countryside and culture.

 Come along and let’s wander from Main Street to the road less traveled.

with Curt Tucker

Tuesday, April 25, 2023

Los Angeles has perfect weather, a sprawling metropolis bounded by mountains, desert and sea and the glamour and grittiness of the entertainment industry. It all makes for a prime hotbed of lore and legend, from a weather phenomenon said to put people on edge, to a hotel plagued with grisly crimes and dangerous guests. Few places are as ripe for tall tales and weird rumors as Greater Los Angeles. Our stories involve common people as well as the rich and the famous. Today we look at a few of the most popular local legends and try to find the truth behind them.


On this fascinating tour, Curt Tucker will lead you on a path of Fact or Fiction. 

Includes lunch at the HMS Bounty Restaurant.
