Norfolk Botanical Garden, TSA Precheck, Riviera Nayarit, Iron Chef Cat Cora
The Norfolk Botanical Garden is an oasis that sits on a 155 acre site near the Norfolk International Airport. The garden showcases 52 themed gardens including a butterfly garden, rose garden and other diverse flora. President Michael Desplaines tells us that visitors will soon experience a taste of Asia when the garden hosts Lanterasia.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has launched four trusted traveler programs to help streamline the travel experience to and around the United States. One program, TSA Precheck is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and we’ll get the 4-1-1 from Nathan Tsoi on how the TSA Precheck program can help travelers avoid long and aggravating security lines.
We had an opportunity to speak to Richard Zarkin about Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit following a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta. Richard joins World Footprints to explain why Riviera Nayarit is more than just a pretty beach resort.
As part of our “Best Of” series we will share our interview with Cat Cora, the first and only female Iron Chef. Cat will talk about her journey to the culinary world as well as her Chefs For Humanity foundation and her mission to end worldwide hunger.
Finally, we will also take a brief tour of Birmingham, Alabama and Tampa Bay, Florida.
