The Not List

Source Article: The "Not" List
  1. Bud Travel is known to get around. Even so, he had somehow never heard about the private pilots in Atlanta and Cincinnati who offer mile-high club flights. For $300, any couple can fly for an hour on a plane outfitted with a mattress. Champagne is free. You keep the sheets. Details: Milehighatlanta.com and Flamingoair.net. (Mark Zingarelli)
  2. Desire Resort and Spa is a chain of adults-only resorts that is bawdier than most. For example, the Desire resort in Los Cabos offers tequila volleyball, naked Twister, pole dance lessons, and "the no-limits party." Details: Desireresorts.com. (Mark Zingarelli)
  3. Bud loves museums. He couldn't even imagine a museum he wouldn't want to visit. At least, he couldn't until he toured the Museum of Foreign Debt in Buenos Aires, which explains Argentina's debts from 1810 to 2001. What's worse than a museum with exhibits on money instead of Monet? A museum with no money at all. Details: Uba.ar. (Mark Zingarelli)
  4. Tales of human and animal dentistry are well-preserved at Baltimore's Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry. Recent exhibitions at this 7,000-square-foot museum have included Saliva: A Remarkable Fluid. Tickets cost $4.50 per person for adults. Details: Dentalmuseum.org. (Mark Zingarelli)
  5. Pripyat, Ukraine, is famously home to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Nowadays, this ghost town is a tourist spot. Companies such as S.A.M. offer daylong tours for about $90 to $400 per person. But don't step on the grass! It's still dangerously radioactive. Details: Ukrcam.com. (Mark Zingarelli)
  6. From time to time, the Moevenpick Hotel in the emirate of Dubai encourages parents to send their children to its day-long training program in hotel work. About 60 children "run" the hotel for a day, greeting guests at reception and providing room service. Details: Moevenpick-hotels.com/hotels/Dubai/welcome.htm. (Eric Knoche)
  7. Mexico's Parque EcoAlberto is about 700 miles south of the Rio Grande. Yet it offers illegal border-crossing simulations, allowing visitors to pretend to be migrants crossing a terrain similar to the one at the border. The tour is called caminata nocturna, which might as well be Spanish for "dumb idea." (Details: Parqueecoalberto.com.mx. (Mark Zingarelli)
