June 2021 Issue
Art & Culture
LGT pays a visit to museums across the country that forego the traditional experience, opting to entertain and educate with interactive exhibits. If you’ve ever wanted to touch a tornado, become a spy or step foot in a science-fiction fantasyland, this story is for you.
We also visit the Southern Literary Trail, which celebrates acclaimed 20th century writers and playwrights; Ohio presidential sites, highlighting the eight Buckeye State natives who reached the presidential office; and we even make a pit stop in Texas where we explore a variety of destinations where popular movies have been filmed.
This issue also contains the Tour Tennessee Itinerary Guide, which spotlights the Volunteer State’s amazing music, incredible food and, of course, the wonderful Smoky Mountains. As if that weren’t enough, the Iowa Tour Guide also graces this issue with its informative stories covering the Hawkeye State’s cosmopolitan cities and rich artistic history.
So, grab a cool beverage, find some shade and enjoy this issue of LGT that will both educate and entertain you.
