    I would travel to Peru. I would like to go back to 1470 to see how the Incas built Macchu PIcchu. I would love to see how they moved those humungus rocks into place to build the city.

    I would like to visit Spain.

    2. At what point in history you would go?

    I would like to go in the mid 80's when everything was happening and the dictatorship was over.

    3. Why?

    It would be awesome to witness the coming together of a country's people after such oppression.

    By Janene Scarborough on October 29, 2010 12:53 PM

    I would like to visit: Hollywood, Ca.
    I would like to be going to the 1950's
    why?: Because that was a time of excitement in the movie and Television era,
    everything was so innocent then, i love that time, it was magical!

    About 3000 BC

    Giza Plateau, Egypt

    I want to see the construction of the Great Pyramid in Giza.

    Take a side trip to the Tower of Babel!

    By Marlo DeVouge on October 29, 2010 4:11 PM

    Anywhere? Anytime? Babylon about 550 BC to see the beautiful hanging gardens, and meet Daniel.

    I would like to visit China during the Ming Dynasty (get it?). I want to experience the ancient chinese culture, art, food, and get a deeper understanding of my chinese heritage

    By Marion Janssens on October 30, 2010 4:13 AM

    I would go back to 22 November of 1963,Dalles and save the live of President JF Kennedy.

    By Todd on October 30, 2010 11:42 AM

    I'd travel a couple of weeks into the future to get some winning lottery numbers. Then I would take my family to Hawaii for a few weeks (at least a week on each island). There's no other time in history I'd rather be than right now, enjoying life with my wife and kids! Besides, there's no internet, hi-def TV and hot tubs in the distant past, why would we want to go there?

    By Bonnie Heflin on November 3, 2010 12:59 PM

    I would like to visit Paris, France because of the structure of the tower - how awesome would that be to actually see that in person. It would be a dream come true!

    Thank you in advance for this opportunity!

    By Bonnie Heflin on November 3, 2010 1:01 PM

    I would love to go to Paris, Franc.e

    To see the tower in person would be an awesome experience and a dream come true!

    Thank you in advance for this opportunity!

    The year 1815 with Napoleon at Waterloo.
    He started the metric, monetary and justice system that we know today.

    By Sue on November 3, 2010 1:50 PM

    The northwestern American plains hundreds of years ago - prairie, buffalo, and stars!

    By Danni Katchia on November 3, 2010 1:59 PM

    1. Where you would visit?

    I would visit the along the Columbia River Gorge Area

    2. At what point in history you would go?

    I would go back to the 1850's.

    3. Why?

    My name is originated from my great-great-great grandfather his name was "kachiah". (Pronounced "Ka-Ch-eye-ya") He was a Wasco Chief/Leader at that time for his band of Wasco people. His name became my now present day last name Katchia which is now spelled different. He was then was assigned the name Danial. That was back when native american's were assigned a "christian" or "white" name. I am the second person to carry on his name. I would like to go back in time to visit him and see how he felt about how this took place.

    By Lorie Collingwood on November 3, 2010 2:15 PM

    We would love to visit our Son who lives in Brooks Alta.
    We would go over Christmas holidays 2010

    Because my son just recently got married and they live in a small apartment thus if we visit we would have to stay in a hotel.

    By Dawn on November 3, 2010 2:19 PM

    I would like to visit Paris when the Eiffel tower was being built

    By Sue R on November 3, 2010 2:21 PM

    I would travel to Magdeburg, Germany around the 1860's because my g-g-grandparents emigrated from there. I visited the Magdeburger Dom, the enormous cathedral, that has stood there for centuries in the 1990's but despite efforts to restore it to its former condition (it was basically destroyed during WWII) I would want to see it the way my ancestors saw it.

    By Louise Smiley on November 3, 2010 2:27 PM

    Philadelphia, PA

    July 4, 1776

    To be part of history of the signing of the Declaration of Independece which established the individual freedom of all people and began the birth of our country that has no comparison to any other country for FREEDOM!!!

    By Nancy on November 3, 2010 2:30 PM

    I would ride the time machine back to Wasaga Beach to arrive in the summer of 1957. I could play on the beach with my brothers and sister, jumping the waves and walking out to the sandbars. I could watch my mother painting en plein air. Late in the evening we could walk through the light from the moon as it shines on the water.

    By Jill B on November 3, 2010 2:35 PM

    I would like to visit New York City, Manahattan, in the late 1800's. I lived and worked in the city for 10 yrs and have seen the hustle and bustle of today, but would love to see how different life was like back then.

    By Anne S on November 3, 2010 3:02 PM

    I would like to go back in the 1900's to Ireland as my ancestors are from there. I am interested in how they lived and what the country side was like.

    By Ryan M on November 3, 2010 3:45 PM

    Definitely I would love to visit Greece somewhere between 200 and 300 BC. To be able to see when and where the birth of modern Western civilization came from, as well as all of the architectural marvels in their glory, would be fantastic.

    By Cathy L on November 3, 2010 3:56 PM

    Where? Yellowstone and surrounding area
    When? While the area was being created-the crashing of the earth causing the Tetons to soar above the earth and the volcano that created the Jackson Hole valley to sink, and the bubbling cauldrons spewing water.
    Why? It is so beauitful today, its hard to imagine all the chaos that happened to create this special place.

    By Sue Michael on November 3, 2010 5:30 PM

    1. Where you would visit? --- Poland
    2. At what point in history you would go? -- 1980's
    3. Why? -- To learn about ancestors

    I would love to go back to the year around the 1980’s and surprise my 3 girls with a trip to Poland…they would have been old enough then…so they could see where their paternal ancestors originated from and see how they lived. I have done a lot of their genealogy and it would have been awesome for them.


    By Rich M. on November 3, 2010 5:35 PM

    1. Where you would visit? --- Anywhere

    2. At what point in history you would go? -- November 22, 2012

    3. Why? -- To prove that the world did not come to an end.

    By Sharyl W on November 3, 2010 8:12 PM

    I would travel back in time to San Francisco a week before the 1909 earthquake. I would want to see the city at it's peak of post gold-rush prosperity, see how people were dressed and how they got around the city.

    By Steven L. Hagenah on November 3, 2010 8:27 PM

    I would go to Washington DC to visit my daughter before she died of cancer in 2003 to tell her how the process will go and that I love her dearly. That I will be holding her hand the whole time.

    By F. C. Brown on November 3, 2010 10:04 PM

    I would visit Australia and New Zealand in 1985 as that's when my husband and I visted that area. We had such a great time that I would love to relive it!

    By LRaguse on November 4, 2010 6:39 AM


    I have two destinations- Wyoming and Idaho
    I want to go back in time to the early 1800's when Lewis and Clark were exploring the west. I want to see what the west looked like before it got populated by settlers. I also want to see and be a part of the Oregon trail through these two states. It would be fascinating to be a part of that history.

    By TR on November 4, 2010 7:00 AM

    I want to be in Wyoming in the early 1800's when the west wasn't won yet. I want to see it before it was populated. I want to discover and clear my own trails into the mountains. I want to be a cowboy back then, yes sir that's the life I wanta see.

    By Mark Flynn on November 4, 2010 8:08 AM

    I would travel to Concord Mass

    I would travel at the time of the start of the American Revoluton.

    The reason for my travel at this time would be to hear the shot that was heard around the world.

    By David Burstein on November 4, 2010 10:14 AM

    I would choose Paris in the 1920s when Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Picasso were there.

    The cafes were stimulating and the streets and boulevards had the atmosphere we see in black and white photographs of the time.

    There were no fast food restaurants and the pace was slower.

    By sharon miller on November 4, 2010 12:20 PM

    I would love to travel back in time to London for the wedding of Prince Charles & Princess Diana. I was glued to the TV set for the entire day & could feel the enormous love the British people felt for the young couple.
    It would be so amazing to be part of something so lovely. Pomp and circumstance when done well, is quite wonderful.

    By Gloria B on November 4, 2010 2:00 PM

    I would love to visit Italy 30 years ago. It seems like a much simpler time and I would have a much higher appreciation of the romance at that time and place.

    By Mike Strong on November 4, 2010 2:53 PM

    My trip in time would take me to the continent before August of the year 1914- at the time before "the lights went out around the world". At that time Europe was at the height of civility, sophistication and technology (to date). At that time no one had heard of world wars and people honestly believed that all of the issues of the day could be solved by diplomacy and that interdependent commerce made a global conflagration impossible to even imagine. Woodrow Wilson worked toward an ideal of world peace and the creation of a League Of Nations to ensure that all of the problems plaguing society would be handled through civil discourse.

    By Ron Nourse on November 4, 2010 7:24 PM

    I would go to montreal in 1967 to revisit Expo 67

    By Dennis Port on November 5, 2010 8:03 PM

    I would like to visit the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri because it was remarkable for it's size and innovation. It was, I believe, the greatest of all World's Fairs.

    If I had a second choice it would be in agreement with Ron Nourse - I would revisit Expo 67 in Montreal.

    By Terry on November 9, 2010 5:31 PM

    I would like to go back to Feb. 15th 2007 for my son's 22nd bithday. I know the winning Powerball numbers for that night's drawing and will win 300 million dollars. Happy Birthday Son!!!

    By Gene on November 16, 2010 1:37 PM

    I'd like to take a trip across "America" pre-arrival of the Europeans.

    By Steph Cadelinia on November 16, 2010 1:49 PM

    I would visit Disney World, no specific point in history (now would be good), why?--because I have always wanted to take my daughter there.

    By Richard McGraw on November 16, 2010 1:55 PM

    I have always wanted to visit Germany, and I would like to visit Berlin, Germany in the late 1980's when the Berlin Wall came down. This was a historic time in our history and was the beginning of the end of Cold War with Communism and Russia.

    By Rick S. on November 16, 2010 2:00 PM

    I would like to visit Asheville, N.C.

    I would like to go back to the early 1900 to see how much more beutiful the natural envireonment surronding Ashville was back then. Today Ashville is still a beutiful and breathtaking place with large mountains, rolling hillsand fast streams flowing over beutiful rocks.

    By Anne T. Kahn on November 16, 2010 2:00 PM

    I would love to visit the area that's now western Alberta/Montana around 1800. Why? My great-great-great-great grandfather, Jacques Raphael (Jocko) Finlay ran a trading post there. He was half Scottish, half Chippewa/Cree, and by all accounts, a real characters. I'd love to find out what he was really like.

    By Larry on November 16, 2010 2:01 PM

    DO NOT PUT MY NAME OR E-MAIL ADDRESS ON THIS SIGHT. THANK YOU.

    BY Larry on Nov. 16, 2010

    IF I WERE TO TRAVEL BACK IN TIME I WOULD VISIT THE AREA OF EUROPE THAT MY WIFE LIVED AND WENT TO SCHOOL AT; FRANCE AND THE LOIRE VALLEY AREA. HAVING RAISED 6 CHILDREN OTHER THINGS TOOK PRIORITY TO ANY TRAVEL, EXCEPT FOR SHORT AND CLOSE TRIPS TO HOME. HAVING BEEN TOGETHER FOR 40 YEARS IT WOULD BE A WONDERFUL SURPRISE TO PRESENT THIS TO MY WIFE. SHE ALWAYS HAS WANTED TO GO BACK TO FRANCE. SINCE I AM SLIGHTLY DISABLED I DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER I CAN TRAVEL WITHOUT SPECIAL ASSISTANCE. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT ANNIVERSARY GIFT FOR ME TO PRESENT TO MY WIFE IN APRIL.

    By Tara T on November 16, 2010 2:04 PM

    1. Where you would visit? I would travel to South and Central America pre-Columbian time to see how the ancient Mayas and other tribes actually lived. I would travel in the Amazon to see native birds flying free, especially the almost extinct Spix's Macaw and many other birds who are in danger of extinction because of poaching and deforestation.

    2. At what point in history you would go? Early 1400's

    3. Why? To warn the people what is about to happen to them so they can protect themselves and their native species. To find some way to prevent the bird species from going extinct.

    I want to visit Garmish in Germany

    I want to be ther around 1840

    I want to visit my great grandparents when they wre young and before they immigrated to the United States. I want to see their village and farm in that period of time.

    By Merrill on November 16, 2010 2:12 PM

    I would love to go to Anaheim, CA and visit Disneyland on July 17, 1955. I would love to meet Walt Disney and experience the chaos of Disneyland's opening day!

    By P Brown on November 16, 2010 2:12 PM

    The old West (Montana or Wyoming) in the mid 1800's just to see an untarnished frontier.

    By Steve Kowatch on November 16, 2010 2:19 PM

    I would go to Cody,Wyoming during the late 1800's to meet some of the great cowboys of our time.

    By Alisha Meier on November 16, 2010 2:21 PM

    I want to visit Holland during the spring for the tulips
    I would want to go present day
    I would want to take my mom and daughter. It has been something that my mom and I have dreamed about doing together for years.

    Go to Nova Scotia, Never been. Would go in this age and time. Kids are all grown and on their on. Good honeymoon we never had ...

    Montreal, Canada to see what it looked like on
    New Year's Day 1912

    By Laurel Kahak on November 16, 2010 2:44 PM

    My time flash-back would be to Fall of 1941 in Honolulu, Hawaii, prior to the horror of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Survivors describe the innocent days of pre-WWII Honolulu as being like paradise! I would love to have seen this.

    By Judy S on November 16, 2010 2:50 PM

    I would wish to travel with the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1810 to the west. It would be a grand adventure to travel with them and see this country before it was ruined by "progress and our European civilization. I would love to visit the Native American villages and learn their ways of preserving the environment. Riding a horse across the plains and up into the mt.s would be heaven.

    By Patricia Helms on November 16, 2010 2:58 PM

    I would travel to the Pacific Northwest in late 1805/early 1806 to be a part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition when they first saw the grandeur of Mount Hood, the Columbia River Gorge and, at last, the Pacific Ocean. I'm a native of that corner of the world and I've always wondered what it must have been like to lay eyes on that part of the country for the first time... To be a part of the expedition at that point must have been amazing!

    By laura on November 16, 2010 3:00 PM

    1. Where you would visit? I would visit Reno, NV

    2. At what point in history you would go? 1982

    3. Why? I would get to see my dad while he was still alive and fairly healthy. I would show him pictures of his grandsons, tell him how much they are like him, tell him about how they drag race like he did and how very much they wish they could have been able to have him in their lives.

    By Randi on November 16, 2010 3:11 PM

    I would visit Plymouth, Ma
    I would go in the 1600's
    I would want to see what the people on the Mayflower saw, when they stepped off their ship.

    1. I would visit the big island of Hawaii.
    2. The time would be June 1985.
    3. I would love to walk upon the black sand beach at Kalapana again.

    By Larry Slack on November 16, 2010 3:32 PM

    I would love to sit in on the constitutional conventions in the late 1700's. I could actually understand the country as the founders envisioned it and compare to what this wonderful experiment has become.

    By Roland Sander on November 16, 2010 3:49 PM

    I would travel back in time to Washington DC, 1864. I would meet with President Lincoln. I would study his face, give him a brief on how it all turns out with a pat on the back. I would give him a few pictures of modern Illinois and we would have a great laughs, I'm sure, of the politics of today, prompting a few beers and trading more stories of yesterday and today!

    By Karen Phillips on November 16, 2010 3:49 PM

    I would like to go to the large plantation homes in the deep southern states, Georgia, Florida, Alabama during the 1940's and 1950's. Life was gracious, kind and much simpler at that time.

    By M.K. on November 16, 2010 3:52 PM

    I'd love to go back to all the wonderful places I've visited in my lifetime up to now. I'd be able to savor the place and the memories all over again!

    By Allen on November 16, 2010 4:01 PM

    I love the Big Sky country of Montana. As a Naval Officer, I've had my fill of overseas travel. I would much rather travel in the U.S.A.! I would like to travel in the modern age. I love modern automobiles and the comfort of WalMarts and gas stations along the way.

    By Sandra T. on November 16, 2010 4:03 PM

    I would love to visit Italy and Germany to see where my great grandparents came from.

    By Sheryl Rasmusson on November 16, 2010 4:04 PM

    I would love to go to the Oregon Coast. Back in the early 1900's when the lighthouses were utilized for saving the fishermen and there was a plethora of fresh seafood and beautiful uncivilized beaches.

    By Robert Garcia on November 16, 2010 4:06 PM

    1. I would like to go to Ukraine.
    2. I would like to go 20 years form now.

    By Martin P. on November 16, 2010 4:14 PM

    1. Philadelphia.
    2. 1776.
    3. Because Ben Franklin would be there, and I'd like to hang out with him during the founding days of America.

    By Lesley Palacioz on November 16, 2010 4:15 PM

    I would travel back in time to the 1940s to watch the love story develop between my parents. From the first meeting on a dare through the courtship and marriage.

    By Deborah Raith on November 16, 2010 4:26 PM

    I would go back to the little mountain town of Mildred, PA in the 1930's to see what life was like for my grandmother.

    By Jan Eastman on November 16, 2010 4:28 PM

    San Francisco or Bust. I think visiting SF during the Gold Rush period in US History would be not only educational but also fun...and a bit scary. So many people risked so much to make a bid for a chance at fame and fortune, and paved the way for the development of the western states.

    By Marya Sinopoli on November 16, 2010 4:34 PM

    I would like to travel to Pacifica Ca. and stay at the Best Western Lighthouse hotel again. I wish I could travel back over 10 years ago that way I would be a able to walk hand in hand again with the love of my life, my husband that I lost to cancer some time ago. Nothing is better than great memories!

    By Lisa Hunt on November 16, 2010 4:39 PM

    I would travel back to the early 1800's in southeast America. It was such a romantic time. I love looking at the old plantations and imagine living in them wearing the long hoop dresses.

    I would love to go to some of those plantations, especially in Georgia and Alabama to see if I could connect to the resident ghosts and ask them about how they lived. I often dream of living in that era, wearing the long flowing gowns.

    I would like to go back & witness my birth and experience what the moment meant to my parents and other members of my family. I'd like to know what my parents were like and to see myself as an infant. Brooklyn NY - July 1, 1934

    By Charles Harle on November 16, 2010 4:54 PM

    New York City during Washington's defense against the British on the day that he had the new Declaration of Independence read to the Continental Army. He did this to inspire the troops and to help them realize the importance of the sacrifice that they were making. From that day forward the Continental Army was now the Army of the United States of America.

    I'd love to visit San Francisco in the mid-late 1960's. I was just a little too young to be a hippie and always thought that San Francisco and Haight Ashbury was the place to be. the music scene was incredible then. I'd love to be able to get a feel for it to see if it really was a 'groovy" as it seemed to me back then

    Where you would visit? Berlin

    At what point in history you would go? the late 80's when the wall was torn down.

    Why? This was an amazing day in history and to be there to watch that wall come down would have been phenomenal.

    Where would I go? I would go to California.
    When would I go? I would go during the great gold rush.
    Why? With the price of gold today a person could get rich. Especially if I took my metal detector.

    By Wendy Sinclair-Brown on November 16, 2010 5:22 PM

    I would like to go to Arcos de la Fronterra in Andalusia, Spain just after the Spaniards evicted the Moors. I am fascinated with this period of European History and love the architecture that combines both cultures.

    By Samantha on November 16, 2010 5:25 PM

    I would visit any place in the United States during the year 3000. I would like to see a futuristic world and see all the new technologies we have developed and how we have changed in order to save the planet for all of us.

    I would visit England during the reign of Elizabeth I. It was a fascinating time in history with the discovery of a whole new world and maybe I would get to meet Shakespeare and attend one of his plays.

    By Debra on November 16, 2010 5:43 PM

    I would visit England during the reign of Elizabeth I. It was a fascinating time in history with the discovery of a whole new continent. I would be able to meet Shakespeare and attend one of his plays, which were never seen before that time.

    Normandy France.

    2. At what point in history would you go?

    Middle Ages.

    By Randi on November 16, 2010 5:54 PM

    I would love to travel back to the time when both of my parents were growing up, so that I could discover what defining moments turned them into cruel and destructive parents. I would like to just watch, and discover, and learn. It would solve the two greatest mysteries of my life, and answer so many questions.

    By Elizabeth on November 16, 2010 5:57 PM

    I would visit Vienna, Austria, in the 1780s. Mozart was at the height of his career. Imagine listening to his new compositions performed live while dressed in elegant brocade, nibbling on sumptuous Viennese pastries! I'd love to attend the premiere of my favorite opera, The Marriage of Figaro, in 1786.

    By Steve in Sacramento on November 16, 2010 5:59 PM

    I'd like to go back to the post World War II period (late 40s, early 50s) in the United States--probably start in Chicago or New York.

    Why? I'd like to experience the Golden Age of Train Travel. I'd like to ride the shiny new streamliners, but I'd also like to experience the last days of the age of steam, and ride trains when you could go virtually anywhere on a passenger train. I was born in 1946, so my earliest memories are of this period, but I only experienced a small part of it.

    By chunnybuckles on November 16, 2010 6:02 PM

    I would go to the islands of Skellig Michael, craggy outcroppings off the SW coast of Ireland, near the Ring of Kerry.

    The time would be about 700 A.D., when the hermetic Christian monks lived quiet lives of contemplation in their stone beehive igloos. They collected rainwater to drink in cisterns beneath their huts and ate the bounty of the sea (fish, and marine mammals) and sky (birds and their eggs). They grew gardens in the small valleys of the island. They traded what extra they had to friendly seafaring peoples but were finally wiped out by the Vikings in about 1100.

    We were there with our child when she was four and climbed up the several hundred steps from the dangerous cove where the boat dropped us off and then sped away. Amazing!

    By Jessie on November 16, 2010 6:03 PM

    I would love to go back in "her-story" to meet Attila the Hun. Anyone who took on the entire Roman Empire is quite courageous in my book!

    By Ann B on November 16, 2010 6:03 PM

    I would like to go back in time to visit my grandmother on her farm in WI around the 1940's. She died before I was born and I often wonder what she was like, and what things I missed out on learning from her.

    By Linda Smith on November 16, 2010 6:04 PM

    I would like to go back to anytime before I lost my parents in 2001 so I could spend more time with them.

    By Barbara Burton on November 16, 2010 6:23 PM

    I would go to Paris, France in 1874. 1874 is when Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, Berthe Morisot, Édouard Manet, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne and others held their own exhibition after the French Academy's Salon rejected most of their works. They are the "impressionists," and they adopted the name as an accurate description of their intent in painting. The Impressionists changed Western painting. It would be amazing to see these original painters and their revolutionary works in person.

    By Robert Spurgeon on November 16, 2010 6:27 PM

    I would love to go back two years to a vacation back east with family. Had a great time!

    By Juliette ODell on November 16, 2010 6:29 PM

    I would like to go to Athens Greece. I would like to spend time in a culture that was a model for our own country's democratic way of life. I would like to go in the summertime because I do not work during the summer and I would have ample time to explore and learn .

    By Cheryl Clayton on November 16, 2010 6:29 PM

    I would go to Walt Disney World.
    At the time of its opening to meet Walt and the other great people that thought up and created this wonderful family place.

    By Juliette ODell on November 16, 2010 6:33 PM

    I would like to travel to Athens Greece. I would like to explore and indulge in their culture during the summertime.

    By Kay on November 16, 2010 6:43 PM

    I'd like to travel back to July 2, 1937 over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island to find out what happened to Amelia Earhart.

    By JW on November 16, 2010 6:57 PM

    I would go back to the the little Green River in Rhode Island during the summer of '62 to visit with a little boy with his feet dangling in the water, thinking how 'borin' it all was... and tell him to ENJOY the moment!!

    By STEVE on November 16, 2010 6:58 PM

    I would like to stand on the grassy knoll in Dalls Texas in 1963 and see who was there.

    By Tom on November 16, 2010 7:03 PM

    Woodland hills to visit my daughter and go on a local adventure together!

    By Debbie on November 16, 2010 7:12 PM

    I'd love to take a trip to Italy or even New York with my two daughters, about four years past before they left for college, because we missed that opportunity and no longer have the time for those family vacations. I regret not doing this before they moved onto college/working to support thier college.

    By RICHARD P. DIMARE on November 16, 2010 7:17 PM

    MY FAVORITE PLACE TO VISIT IS LAKE TAHOE AND BEST WESTERN'S TIMBER COVE RESORT, BUT ONLY ON THE LAKEVIEW SIDE WHERE YOU CAN ENJOY BOTH THE SUNRISE AND SUNSET ANY TIME OF YEAR. I LIKE THE FACT THAT THE ROOMS OFFER PRIVACY AS THEY ARE IN A CLUSTER OF 4-5. DINING IS JUST A STONES THROW AWAY OR YOU CAN EAT IN THE RED TOMATO RESTAURANT IN THE RESORT.

    By Ronnie Wheeler on November 16, 2010 7:18 PM

    Where would I go:

    I would go to Jerusalem the Capital of Israel

    When in time:

    To know that he gave his life to save the world I would like to see where Christ was born and were he walked and died.

    By Dave on November 16, 2010 7:19 PM

    Maryland State house, December 23, 1783. This is the day that General Washington resigned his commission. He had the ability to retain total power, he had the support of the military, many in Europe thought he would become King. Instead, he turned that power back to congress, probably the most heroic unselfish deed in the history of our country. It was an emotional meeting with the nineteen or so Congressman in attendance.

    By Kevin on November 16, 2010 7:33 PM

    I would go back to Miami and Key West in the 1930s when Fla was still young & beautiful and not so overdeveloped and touristy.

    By Sue on November 16, 2010 7:43 PM

    My time travel destination would be Egypt. I would like to travel back to the time when the pyramids where being built - so I would know the secret to one of the wonders of the world! As long as I could choose my station in life because I would not want to be one of the actual builders - rather an Egyptian princess overseeing the work!

    By Susan on November 16, 2010 8:07 PM

    I would like to visit Cozumel, Mexico, during the time before the cruise ships started stopping there. The people there were friendlier and were so glad that you were visiting their island. The pace was slower and it was such a fun place to visit. The reefs were not abused by all the crowds of people who now dive there and are not careful.

    By Sharon on November 16, 2010 8:26 PM

    I would travel back to Germany in the late 80's to spend time with my Oma before she passed. I would shower her with kisses. Because she was the love of my life...

    By Janice on November 16, 2010 8:28 PM

    I would travel to England back to the times of the tudors....and live in the court of King Henry the VIII. I want to experience the times, the clothing, the world without the extravagances as we know it, electricity, phones, computers, cars, and live the daily life with the true work that comes to having to get through every day........with or without the money........

    By cindy on November 16, 2010 8:29 PM

    By aaryn on November 16, 2010 8:58 PM

    I would travel to Europe (France, Spain, etc.) at any point in the future as long as I had my two chihuauhas with me. Most of the European countries are very accepting of people traveling with dogs so I would love to take them on a grand vacation!

    By Ray Montelongo on November 16, 2010 9:00 PM

    1. Panama, Panama

    2. 1900's

    3. Witness the building of the Panama Canal.

    By Sherry on November 16, 2010 9:02 PM

    1) I would like to go to the far above all heavens which are described in Ephesians 4:10.

    2) I would like to go at God's appointed time for me.

    3) The reason I want to go there is because my husband passed away on December 22, 2007 without a chance for me to tell him goodbye. He is there waiting for me at Christ's appearing.

    By Jim on November 16, 2010 9:17 PM

    Egypt during the time when the pyramids were being built and there was great wealth there. I would really like to know how they were able to build things like that with no modern equipment

    By Sensible Jim on November 16, 2010 11:05 PM

    History beckons each of us to different places and times. The place that beckons to me is a place I have been before, and a time of fondest memories. That place would be Baltimore... in 1958. I was only a boy of 10 at the time, but my world was smaller... my friends were closer... and my worries were few.

    By Mark on November 16, 2010 11:44 PM

    1. San Francisco California

    2. The summer of love (1967)

    3. I'd be going to San Francisco,
    and I'd be wearing some flowers in my hair...
    When I get to San Francisco,
    I'm gonna meet some gentle people there.

    By Some Lucky Dog on November 16, 2010 11:57 PM

    I want to be in Philadelphia on July 4th, 1776 at the signing of the Declaration of Independence. I'd love to meet each signer and speak with them about the great thing they've done and their visions for the future!

    By J. Blackoff on November 17, 2010 1:19 AM

    If I could time travel I would go back to the dawn of man with a digital camera. I would capture how man was created and then I would flash ahead about half a million years and publicly display my findings. Maybe then our world would be more at peace.

    By R. White on November 17, 2010 1:59 AM

    San Francisco in the late 60's to see Janis Joplin, cream and etc., to remember when the world was about LOVE!!!

    1. To the birth place of Christ
    2. The day of his birth
    3. To witness the greatest happening of all time, when our Savior was born.

    By Dorothea Oppedisano on November 17, 2010 3:47 AM

    I would love to go back to the 1980's in Massachusetts when everything was better in our country. The economy was good, people were working, and you could find just about anything you needed. I would be able to see lost family members and my lost animals. It would be a feel good time for me at least temporarily. I think I would try to warn everyone about future events that would severely impact our country and hope somehow we could prevent it all from happening.

    By C. Schneider on November 17, 2010 3:51 AM

    I would like to travel back to when Walt Disney started the Magic Kingdom. I can remember sitting with my family as a kid and watching Walt Disney every Sunday night which today not to many family's do anymore. Thinking is there such a magical place and wondering what it would be like to visit a castle.

    By Donna Davenport on November 17, 2010 4:14 AM

    1. Definitely would travel to Scotland

    2. Definitely before the English invasion

    3. To see the rolling hills of green, the cliffs, the crags...to hear the haunting sounds of the bagpipes before they were oppressed and outlawed by the English. To visit and talk with the people to learn of the country and its ways.

    By Beverly Strabley on November 17, 2010 4:23 AM

    I would be at Gettyburg, Pennsylvania during the battle in the Civil War. I know this may sound morbid to some, but I would hope my hands could be of service to all who needed them.

    By Thomas Baker on November 17, 2010 4:36 AM

    I would like to visit Wall Street in new York City on December 12, 1980 and purchase a couple thousand shates of Apple Computer stock. That is the day their stock went public for $22.00 a share.

    england in the 60's so i could see the beatles all of them together. my parents never let me go to a concert here in the states. they are my favorite group!

    By Helen Tsotsos on November 17, 2010 5:03 AM

    I would travel back in time to the building of the Acropolis and the time of the Greek Gods. It amazes me how they built these structures, without the machinery that we have today. I believe that it would be an era of time when people enjoyed themselves without the modern day stresses.

    By Karen on November 17, 2010 5:04 AM

    Where: Adirondack Park in Northern New York
    When: 2110

    Alaska

    50+years ago when it became a state

    We missed visiting there when our daughter lived there. It is truly our nation's last frontier

    By Jim Tweeddale on November 17, 2010 5:14 AM

    My destination, Nassau County Long Island in the early 50's. This was my home, I remember it well as a lad in my teens. You could safely ride your bike from Bethpage to Oyster Bay, stop at the Milleridge Inn in Jericho and enjoy the tranquility of the fish pond. Your respite would be rewarded with a friendly visit from the oversized goldfish who would come to the grassy shoreline for a greeting before meandering along the shaded and twisting slender to Oyster Bay. The waterfront was magical. The fishing boats, the gulls, the nets, the salty air, the thought of it is now but a distant memory which dims with each passing year. It is part of what makes life a joy.

    By Bonita Fagan on November 17, 2010 5:20 AM

    Where: Israel
    When: During Jesus ministry
    Why: To see Him face to face and He could answer all my questions

    By Todd on November 17, 2010 5:25 AM

    When: Around 3500 years ago

    By Sue on November 17, 2010 5:37 AM

    I would love to travel back in time to a much simpler life. I would love to go to Ireland and England in the 1700s and see how my ancestors lived.

    By Susan Warren on November 17, 2010 5:40 AM

    I would love to travel back in time to see and hear Jesus Christ. I am in a Bible study now and find this time in history to absolutely facinating. I can only imagine what it would have been like to see and hear him talk and perform miracles.

    When? 1839

    Why? I would love to travel back in time to this location at this time because from family records, it appears this is the year and the location that several of my ancestors decided to leave the Wye Valley for the United States.

    By Jodi on November 17, 2010 7:43 AM

    Umbria- around the town of Gubbio in 900 A.D.

    Would of like to met the Templar Knight that acquired castello Carbonana and was the first Count of Carbonana. To feast at his table in the castle and see how different it was then as to know. The questions one would want to ask a Templar even knowing that he couldnt give a straight answer. How exciting that would be....

    By Phyllis Astheimer on November 17, 2010 7:47 AM

    By Tim Donovan on November 17, 2010 7:52 AM

    Where and When: I would visit the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas back in the late 50s-early 60s.

    Why: I was a boy and back then, there was Dallas and forty miles west was Fort Worth and pretty much woods, farms and pasture land in between. We would ride our bikes all day long, go fishing in the creek and play hide and seek and capture the flag in the woods. Today, DFW is basically a "Mega City". Solid city from Dallas to Forth Worth.

    By Terez Fulop on November 17, 2010 7:56 AM

    I would like to travel back to the Good Ol Cow boys Days, Ahh yes with a cold one in one hand and a cold one in the other, hanging out in the town saloon. A much simplier life, where a hand shake actually meant something.

    By Dennis on November 17, 2010 8:11 AM

    Where: Washington, DC

    When: For the inauguration of John F. Kennedy and the early days of his administration.

    Why: I am a republican, but I can only think of a few other times when we American’s were so optimistic. Kennedy may not have been the greatest president , or even a great man, but we could sure use his positive messages and "can-do" spirit today.

    By Bette B on November 17, 2010 8:12 AM

    I would travel back to the 1600's to Italy. First stop: Cremona, where the first violins were made and listen to a concert on handmade violins in a king's court. Visit Stradivarius and watch him make a violin. Visit the forests from which the wood came to make the violins. Take some lessons from a violin master. Next stop: Rome, to visit and see the works of the many artists and observe while they work. See what the heart and soul of creativity in music and art were in those days.

    By Linda Cartwright on November 17, 2010 8:20 AM

    I would love to travel to Europe! When I was there in 1986, everyone was so friendly, and so layed back! It was like going back in time! Loved all the hard work they all do for a living, and all the hand made items!

    By Sue on November 17, 2010 8:25 AM

    North America


    1700

    I'd like to live with a peaceful Indian tribe before they were disturbed by outside influences.

    By Tracey West on November 17, 2010 8:25 AM

    If I could travel back in time, I would visit the year 2630 B.C.
    The land would be Egypt. Here the first and largest pyramid to see.
    The intelligence in ancient man, something no book could teach.
    Aligned with stars and built by hand, a record 204 feet it reached.
    To spend a day in their life, I would learn their trades.
    And a better understanding of, how modern man was made.
    However, once I arrive in Ancient Egypt, I would learn my first lesson
    That the local accommodations, don’t compare to the Best Western.

    By LoriAnn on November 17, 2010 8:44 AM

    I would visit the Bronx, NY on October 17, 1994 to hug and kiss my grandmother and to say good-bye to her before she passed away in a car accident.

    By G. Arthur Mihram on November 17, 2010 9:20 AM

    Would love to be in/near Sydney, Australia, for the 4th of January 2011 (perhaps also for the 3 nights preceding) to start the new year Down Under. As a former Fulbright Scholar there, this would be a terrific opportunity to visit with acquaintances from those several years ago.

    By Sharon Rose on November 17, 2010 9:44 AM

    Where I would visit?

    If I could travel in time I would definitely travel to Byron Bay, Australia.

    At What point in history would I travel:

    I would travel at this very moment.

    Why would you travel there?

    I would travel there because my youngest son just moved there to live and I am missing him so much. The holidays just won't be the same for me without him at home this year.

    By Terrence Snyder on November 17, 2010 9:49 AM

    1. A cave in Bethlehem.
    2. The year is 0.
    3. To worship and adore Him.

    By Sandy Bridges on November 17, 2010 10:02 AM

    If I could travel back in time, I would visit my childhood home on Christmas day of the year 1962. There is a black-and-white photo of my family hanging in my living room today. It shows all of us there except my mother, who is taking the picture. She died two years ago, and I would just love to be with her again, and the rest of my family, on that day the photo was taken.

    By P Jefferson on November 17, 2010 10:03 AM

    I would love to go back to 1875 St Louis, ILL.
    It would be wonderful too see where my family started and some of there real history in the making.

    By Greg Dean on November 17, 2010 11:52 AM

    I would travel back to 1991 and go to Game 7 of the World Series between the Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves. Jack Morris pitches a 10 inning complete game shutout and Gene Larkin's walk off single scores Dan Gladden with the winning run in the bottom of the 10th. After the game, I would grab a beer and head for a good night's sleep at a local Minneapolist-St. Paul Best Western!!!

    By Lauren on November 17, 2010 11:54 AM

    I would like to travel to the Grand Canyon just after the end of the great flood to watch as the waters recede and the canyon emerges. It's an amazing place and I'd like to see what it was like originally.

    By Michaelene on November 17, 2010 12:44 PM

    I would like to travel back for a Victorian Christmas in London.

    It would be grand to walk the streets and feel as if you were in a Dicken's Christmas Carol. The style of dress, the gaslights, the spirit of Christmas.

    You can smell the chestnuts roasting and hear the carolers singing, The snow is gently falling as carriages rumble through the bustling streets. The children are anxiously waiting for Father Christmas. And the first Christmas tree is being prepared at the Palace. The young Queen Victoria is starting a tradition that will be carried out in many homes for many years to come. The candles a blaze in windows, the sent of goose roasting for the family feasts. And at the end of the evening the faithful stroll towards their place of worship for a Midnight Service to recollect the true reason for this glorious season, the birth of the Christ child. What a magical and exciting site.

    By Carol Hansen on November 17, 2010 1:07 PM

    ohhhh where would I travel to with so many places to go and see! But iIF I had to choose just one place, then it would be to one of the islands of the south pacific. Any lovely place, and I am sure that there is a lovely Best Western Inn/Suites there to enjoy myself from the hectic work schedule that I am on. I would also love to be with my family for a family reunion, with everyone in my family from my Mom and Dad, sister, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins {1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc} whomever wants to be part of our family, they could come and enjoy themselves, as families do. With our family all over the word. Austraila, USA (Minnesota, Colorado, New York, Florida, Ohio, etc), England, Ireland, and anywhere else they may be resting there heads! { It is hard for all of us to get together and enjoy each others company.} Hopefully, if they are traveling ,they are at their local Best Western enjoying themselves! We would have a blast , as you do, at a Best Western, there in the south pacific Islands!

    When would I go: Now! No dout about it, or within the next few years!! To many of us are so far apart and don't see each other enough!

    Why would I want to do this: I think family is everything, and the Best Western they make you feel like you are part of their Family!

    By O.J. on November 17, 2010 1:27 PM

    Have always dreamed of England in the 19th century...

    By Anita Rodriguez on November 17, 2010 1:29 PM

    I would be so happy if I could go to Brooklyn,NY, right now, to attempt a reconciliation with my youngest daughter,now 24. She ran away after a minor disagreement over her excess cellphone usage,calling me "trash",never to contact me again for now 6 years. I know something must be terribly wrong to destroy our previously close,loving relationship. Even during my recent battle with cancer, she became enraged at her stepsister for even suggesting a "get well" card.
    Why do I want to make things right despite constant rejection?? Because I love her with all my heart since the day she was born, always have, and always will. Why now? I hope time and maturity have opened her heart a little, and as I've seen, life is so short.

    By Dawn on November 17, 2010 2:26 PM

    There are so many places and times that I would love to see, but the most important to me would be now. My daughter is stationed in South Korea and I love to see her for the holidays

    By Aubrey on November 17, 2010 2:37 PM

    I would like to go to England.

    It would be on June 5th 1944, the day before D DAY and be part of the airborne forces to drop on Europe.

    I have always been interested in this period of time and have the opportunity to be part of history.

    By Lou Barron on November 17, 2010 2:52 PM

    I would like to go back to Europe during the time when Neanderthals were alive. It would be interesting to find out whether they interacted with more advanced humans. They buried their dead and placed flowers in the graves, This shows a loving emotion for the deceased. Why did they disappear? Have they been greatly underestimated?

    By Andy G on November 17, 2010 2:52 PM

    I'd go to Berlin and watch the wall come down in 1989! Germany re-united to become one!

    By Mary Ennis on November 17, 2010 2:52 PM

    The Netherlands. I was born there, have many relatives there. Would love to visit it and walk the paths and streets my parents and grandparents walked. Visit the places they used to frequent and visit remaining relatives but have my own place to stay.
    :))

    By Shirley on November 17, 2010 2:53 PM

    Where? - Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, England

    When? - 5000 years ago

    Why? - to ask the builders the purpose of Stonehenge.

    By carl on November 17, 2010 2:53 PM

    Bethel, New York
    1969
    Woodstock! ...Sex, drugs, and rock & roll!!!

    Polynesia before white arrived to experience their culture before it was destroyed.

    By Michael Hart on November 17, 2010 2:59 PM

    Ancient Egypt. I would love to see how their civilization existed and how close our theories came to their reality.

    By Terry Hunka on November 17, 2010 2:59 PM

    Where: I would go to Jasper, Alberta, and go camping.
    When: 1995
    Why: I miss my Brother-in-law who passed away 5 years ago. We went camping often in Jasper Park back in 1995.

    By Helen Fast on November 17, 2010 3:00 PM

    If I could travel back in time I would go back to ancient Egypt.
    The pyramids look breathtaking now, I wonder how they were actually built and what things were like back then. Has always been fascinating to many people, it would be so cool to actually be there.

    By John Rambo on November 17, 2010 3:06 PM

    I would like to go to Turkey during the Ottoman Empire in the seventeenth century. This would allow me the opportunity to observe history in the making, as well as a major clash of cultures.

    By Garry Vastila on November 17, 2010 3:11 PM

    I would love to travel to Greece during the time of the great philosophers to see true democracy be born.

    By Michael on November 17, 2010 3:19 PM

    I live in British Columbia and I love it here. My trip in time would be here, just about 150 years earlier when Vancouver was a rainforest and the beaches were rough yet peaceful. A little trip in a kayak towards the sunset is all it would take to make me happy at the moment. :)

    By Mary Durand on November 17, 2010 3:23 PM

    I would like to go back to about 1905 to South Dakota. I would find out why many family members left there to endure the hardships faced by our pioneer families when they came to the prairies.

    By rhonda swanson on November 17, 2010 3:24 PM

    i would love to travel a 100 years into the future, anywhere, to see how advanced we are . maybe time travel would be possible, maybe we will be living like the "jetsons"!

    By Bryan Hallatt on November 17, 2010 3:34 PM

    Time warp with my family to England (UK) almost a century ago, around 1920's, experiencing the 'roaring 20's' and true British Culture. Of course being able to take a modern 35mm digital camera with me!

    By ron on November 17, 2010 3:35 PM

    Los Angeles in 1970. That was the first and last time I visited Disney in California. I would like to revisit, refresh my memories of an enjoyable day, and expand my visit to see the rest of LA. I wonder if LA then was much different from the LA that I now know.

    By Deidre Gustus on November 17, 2010 3:35 PM

    I would visit Germany at the late 1800 early 1900 so I could meet my ancestors and see just where I come from and who my great grandparents were...I would love to meet some of my family that I never had the chance to meet or know and I love Germany and I love that era as well I believe I was born in the wrong era i love antiques and all this edwardian and victorian period style...

    By Don on November 17, 2010 3:38 PM

    I would go back to 1977 when my mother was still alive and I could introduce her to my wife. It is sad that they never knew each other.

    By Lawson Tremellen on November 17, 2010 3:44 PM

    I would like to go back 30 years to London during the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana. What a magical time that was and we were there in the midst of all the celebrations. It would be great to do that again with the wedding of Diana's son William and his bride Kate in 2011.

    By Lawson Tremellen on November 17, 2010 3:48 PM

    By Sandra hyde on November 17, 2010 3:52 PM

    I would like to be in the roaring 40's in LAS VEGAS
    because I love the dresses, music and the stage shows

    By M Craig on November 17, 2010 3:57 PM

    I would love to visit Athens in 1896 to witness the first Olympic Games

    By Pat on November 17, 2010 4:02 PM

    I live in Canada which is a very beautiful country. If I could trave I would visit a place that I have never been: Newfoundland.
    I would go back 50 years when I was little and enjoy the trip with my mom, dad, brothers and sister. We never got to take family trips as there was always too much work to be done at home and not enough money.It was always a dream as a little girl to go on a trip with my family and now time has changed that chance so it would be just as much fun to pack up my husband and head to THE ROCK.

    By Della Stanger on November 17, 2010 4:02 PM

    1. Love to go to Australia

    2. At the time of first ships arrivals

    3. To engage with the natives at that time and maybe do things differently

    By Alice Mercer on November 17, 2010 4:03 PM

    I would like to travel to Puerto Vallarta during the time that John Huston, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were there for the filming of "Night of the Iguana" (1964) also starring Ava Gardner. Puerto Vallarta was just a village then with only one hotel, "The Rosita", which is still there with all it's original woodwork and ambience. I stay there occasionally and while sitting in the cool, palm-lined foyer I imagine the stars strolling in hand-in-hand for a Tequila Sunrise at the bar - they were so young, beautiful and in love then!

    By angie price on November 17, 2010 4:04 PM

    Back when Jesus walked the earth. Would like to be present when he intervened in the stoning of the adultrous woman... and witness what he wrote in the dirt with the stick... that made all the stone throwers run away! (probably a list of their transgressions)

    By Mary L on November 17, 2010 4:07 PM

    I would like to go back to my home town of Tillsonburg in 1956 as my Father died when I was 6 in 1960 and that would again give me time to spend with my Dad as I really miss him. I don't remember a lot from back then so it would be great to have a second chance to get to know him.

    By Bill J on November 17, 2010 4:27 PM

    1. Greeck Islands
    2. the 1960's
    3. It is always idyllic someohow and in the 60's they would have been less spoiled than they possibly are now.

    By Corney Wolfe on November 17, 2010 4:29 PM

    Back to the roaring Twentys

    By Amber on November 17, 2010 4:29 PM

    I would travel to England during the Napoleonic era. I would love to visit the docks to see the sailing ships of the time--maybe even work on one for a period of time. Nothing better than adventure on the high seas!

    By Bill B on November 17, 2010 4:33 PM

    I would love to take my wife to Paris i think it is a beautyful place to make love.and see the tower .
    Also my others would be Hawaii or Alaska my wife would love anyone of them and now would be the time

    By cathrine prieto on November 17, 2010 4:36 PM

    1. Egypt
    2. Cleopatra's time
    3. love mystery, part of my culture.

    By Helena S. on November 17, 2010 5:14 PM

    I would love to go to The Holy Land at the time that Jesus lived there.
    Since that isn't possible, and I already know that I will see Jesus in a much better place.......I would love to go to Australia to see a part of the world that I have not seen. I love warm weather and sandy beaches.

    By Patrick Robinson on November 17, 2010 5:21 PM

    Athough I now live in Canada, I would travel back in time to my home town in the UK which is York and the period would be around AD 200.
    The Romans founded the City in AD 71 and called it Eboracum, I have walked around the splended ruins many times, and know the layout of the Roman roads but I would love to see what the City actually looked like.

    By M. Hunter on November 17, 2010 5:25 PM

    I would go back to Halifax, Nova Scotia. I love the east coast. If I were to think of going in past history...........I would say sometime before 1917 - before the harbour explosion that devastated Halifax....I know I love Halifax today and would probably have loved it even more so then.

    By Desiree on November 17, 2010 5:32 PM

    I would love to travel to the year 1 and be in Jerusalem. I can't even fathom what it would have been like, but I bet it would be mind blowing!!

    By Ann McLean on November 17, 2010 5:37 PM

    I would like to go back to 1897 to Dublin Ireland when my grandparents were born to experience life at that time.

    By cathrine prieto on November 17, 2010 6:09 PM

    1. Egypt
    2. Cleopatra's day
    3. Love mystery, and love history of that area.

    By Claudia Roubaud on November 17, 2010 6:27 PM

    1. Banff (Alberta, Canada)
    2. The ski season fro 2010/2011
    3. Rocky Mountains, fresh powder, fun family ski, and lots of slopes.

    By Jim Thorp on November 17, 2010 6:38 PM

    Mine is easy. My dad died in 1972 of a sudden heart attack. I was ten years old. I would go back to that time to spend some quality time with him and also to give it my best shot at preventing his heart attack. That's about it.

    By R. Khader on November 17, 2010 6:39 PM

    I would like to go back to last summer (summer of 2010) at the Grand Canyon Az.
    Last summer we took a road trip to the Grand Canyon, and it was our first road trip ever.

    My 7 year old son wanted to hike down the canyon, so we tried, and we only can make it to the half way point down the canyon, so we did it; and it was a dream comes true for him, he said.
    I would like to go back to see the look on his face when we made it back to the top one more time;
    We lost the battery to our camera, so we did not get a chance to take pictures of that moment.

    By cherlyn morrill on November 17, 2010 6:48 PM

    Inverness, Scotland between 1882-1900. I would like to experience that era in history to understand why so many people left for North America...but only if I could return to a modern day Best Western Hotel at night

    By Donna deKleine on November 17, 2010 7:02 PM

    I would love to visit Wales...in the 1900's my Great grandfather would of been a young lad...I would love to of seen him as a young boy in his birth country and met my great great grandparents. Their life struggles, their beginings is part of who I am...

    By Jean on November 17, 2010 7:18 PM

    I'd visit Philadelphia, in 1787, so that I could attend the Constitutional Convention that produced the U.S. Constitution, a work of true genius as well as pragmatic compromise.

    By Joan MC on November 17, 2010 7:51 PM

    Where - Cardinal Ontario Canada ( Gallop Rapids, Edwardsburgh Township Canada at the time)
    When - 1785
    Why - to ask my great-great-great-great grandfather what prompted him to pack up & move himself & his family from Ahoghill Parish, County Antrim, Ireland to Ballstown, Province of New York in 1774 when he was 74 years of age!!!! As a Loyalist, he was jailed for several years in Albany gaol prior to escaping to what became Upper Canada and becoming the senior family member of a large family fortunate to be born in Canada for generations. He lived to 96 years of age, the latter 10 of which were certainly easier than the first 10 in North America.

    By Anne Harris on November 17, 2010 7:53 PM

    I would have liked to visit London at the time of Charles and Diana's wedding 29 years ago. Now we await another big wedding !

    By Roger on November 17, 2010 8:53 PM

    I would like to visit Ca. In the 50s or 60s when life was easy going, the cars were hot and women dressed like women.

    By Pat on November 17, 2010 8:55 PM

    I'd like to travel to Hawaii.... to the time When Elvis did His Satellite Concert. Because I will always be his fan!!!

    By Chris on November 17, 2010 9:26 PM

    I would go to the Bering Strait when it was still a land bridge between Russia and Alaska. How amazing to walk across the icy waters in such an untouched and daunting land.

    By Linda on November 17, 2010 9:34 PM

    I would like to travel back in time to the Samurai era - the so called Floating world, to be a courtesan and see what that life was really like and just how elegant and charming women were around 1860 in Kyoto.

    By Esmi on November 17, 2010 9:38 PM

    Rome! during ancient roman times when the gladiators were around. I would like to watch the gladiator games in the Colosseum.

    By Nancy on November 17, 2010 10:25 PM

    1. I would like to visit Greece-- the Olympiad - original Olympic games.
    2. I would visit during the 2nd games to see all the running men covered in mud. As a woman I would only be able to either sneak in to watch or own a horse to be a participant. As women were banned from the games.
    3.. I love all the Olympic history, modern and ancient, and would be thrilled to witness it in person.

    By Don Bruce on November 17, 2010 11:07 PM

    I would like to visit Copper Canyon New Mexico

    I would visit in the early 1900's as the great iron horse opened up the great north american continent to travellers from all over the world.

    They say this is one of the most spectacular train rides and that the canyon is bigger and better than the grand canyon.

    By Bill Solari on November 18, 2010 1:16 AM

    I would like to travel back to a Saturday night in September,1963. I was on a blind date with a college buddy,and we met 2 girls who were students at RPI in Richmond,Va. I was stunned when my date came down the stairs from her room. Now,47 years later,and after 45+ years of marriage, I would like to relive that magical moment again.She has been and is today,the best thing in my entire life!

    By Roseanne McGuire on November 18, 2010 4:36 AM

    Where would I go?

    I would go to Ireland to enjoy my heritage, lots of beautiful rolling hills and tons of great things to see!

    By R Murray on November 18, 2010 5:10 AM

    I'd love to see Charleston, SC, before the BIG FIRE. The rebuilding and restoration work done was amazing, but I'd love to see the original. The home we're renovating was built in 1838. I can't imagine doing the work without power tools!

    By Stephanie McClennan on November 18, 2010 5:17 AM

    After visiting Cape Spear in St. John's, Newfoundland and seeing the old World War II army barracks and the long guns. I would love to go back to when they were new and in use during the 2nd World War. See the way Canadians protected the North Atlantic and Canada's east coast. As canadian citizens I think more people need to stop and appreciate the beauty and history of our own country before looking elsewhere. The east coast of Canada is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!!

    By Lynn Noseworthy on November 18, 2010 5:27 AM

    To heaven to spend just a little more time with my parents. Let them know how I'm doing since they passed away in 2000.

    I would like to be at the fight at the OK Corral in Tombstone, AZ because I like the old west history.

    By Mona Burgess on November 18, 2010 7:33 AM

    I would like to go back to September 1948 to British Guiana where my dad and mom first met and got married 6 weeks later. I would have liked to have experience the lifestyle of the country back then.

    By Susan on November 18, 2010 8:03 AM

    Where- Europe, (Vienna)
    When - at the time when Baroque music was blossoming.
    Why- I would LOVE to roam the streets and go to, then unknown, composers writing desks and peer over their shoulders. I would love to become a part of the thinking processes of musicians of the time. To be a part of the birth of our building blocks of music would be fascinating!

    I would visit the WWI sites of Belleau Woods, Verdun, Vimy and Ypers of 1917 / 1918. To see what these men actually went through, we of today could never fathom. You can play all the video war games available but it will never replace someone actully living for the moment.

    By Kristina Karlstrom on November 18, 2010 8:27 AM

    I would visit England and Camelot. Even though people don't think it exists, I think it would be fun to go back to that time. I love the dresses and capes, although the lack of plumbing leaves something to be desired. Back in a time when men were shivelress.

    By LYNNE ELLIOT on November 18, 2010 8:43 AM

    I would visit Israel, Egypt, and Palestine and I would go back to when Jesus was alive and living in those places. Since he is the greatest man who ever lived and also God in the flesh, he would be neat to meet and follow around.

    By Mary Galbraith on November 18, 2010 9:10 AM

    I am packed and ready to travel anywhere anytime.
    Would love to travel around Europe and the Maritimes. My husbands family is from Holland and he hasn't been there sence he was a little boy and my family is from the Maritimes a place he has never been. We dream and talk about taking these trips all the time. Would love to surprise him with a trip he works sooooooooooo hard.

    By WPB on November 18, 2010 9:21 AM

    I would go to the Straits of Gibralter at the time the waters from the ocean broke through and flooded the Med valley. To witness such a waterfall would be fantastic.

    Or if that was all booked up.. I would go to Eastern Washington State at the time the ice dam burst and watch the creation of the Grand Coulee and Dry Falls. That too would be monumentous.

    By Dia on November 18, 2010 9:24 AM

    As the past has already been documented in many ways allowing us to revisit the history it would make it an easy decision that the only way to go would be into the future. To go ahead 1000 years I believe space travel would allow travel to discover the solar system and other planets.

    By Harrison Warren on November 18, 2010 9:43 AM

    I would like to be at Fort Robinson, Nebraska in The year 1877, specifically in Sept to witness the causes and after effects of the murder of the great Miniconjou War Chief, "Crazy Horse". I would like to know the tribal politics and causes of his untimely murder. This was a great black mark on American History

    I would wish to visit Amsterdam at the time of Rembrandt van Rijn in order to gain a first-hand appreciation of his and others' painting.

    By Kathryn Friedle on November 18, 2010 10:33 AM

    Travelling back in time, I would travel to the early 1800s in the Mid-West along the Mississippi River. There I would witness pioneers getting ready to take a wagon train across the river to the west to start new lives. I would like to travel along with them to experience the life of a pioneer in a wagon train, eventually ending up in California on the coast.

    By S. Thomas on November 18, 2010 11:09 AM

    I would have liked to see the creation of the universe. Okay, that may be "before 'time'". I love the photos from space and think it would be really neat to see such things as they happen.

    By S. Thomas on November 18, 2010 11:12 AM

    I would like to have been present at the creation of the universe. Okay, that is sort of before "time".... I have always thought the photos from space are really great and would like to see such things as they happen.

    I'd like to come back in the year 2150 to see how much life on earth has changed, at which time the current date of 2010 would be a part of Canada's past history.

    I would love to go to New York, Chicago. Would like to have gone in the 30's when the gangsters were in full swing, Capone, Legs Diamond etc.I It would give me another understanding of that unbelievable part of society.

    By Sandra Sternberg on November 18, 2010 1:09 PM

    My time travel would take me to Vienna, Austria on May 7th, 1824 where I would attend the unveiling of Beethoven's 9th Symphony and be granted an audience with the great genius himself.

    By Joan on November 18, 2010 1:45 PM

    I would like to go to Veradero, Cuba 3 years ago to relive the fabulous vacation I had with my daughter.

    By Elaine Twing on November 18, 2010 1:47 PM

    We would visit London.

    We would like to go in 1077.

    1077 would be eleven years after William the Conqueror had begun his rule of England. 1066 is/was one of the most important events to occur in world history because it changed the course of history for many countries.

    By Phil H. on November 18, 2010 2:15 PM

    I want to be in New York City on VJ Day, 1945.

    I want to experience the US celebration of the end of World War II in the midst of the biggest and most appropriate party on earth, and to thank and congratulate the efforts of our greatest generation.

    By debbie on November 18, 2010 3:04 PM

    i would like to be in the carribean,maybe the caymans around the time of the 1600's when the pirates where there.

    i think it would have been awsome to hang with them and party and drink rum.
    traveling on one of those old ships would have been exciting!!!!
    it is so beautiful there and the water so pretty.
    even the clothes were fantastic looking. yes maybe a pirates life for me!!!!!

After watching the movie "Tombstone" with Kurt Russell I fine it to be an awesome time..

    By DK on November 18, 2010 4:49 PM

    What an interesting idea, and the choices endless. I would like to go back to the time in the Old West when the country was young, and try to make some mistakes in history right for indigenous people. I would love to see old Deadwood, though, and return the Paha Sapa to the Lakota People. I wouls want to witness the raw , new frontier.

    That was before state hood and life was slow and laid back , the top speed limit on the island was 45Mph. the USS Airzona memorial was still a dream. there were Sugar Cane fields and Pinapple in abundance.
    It may not habeen Heav en , But it was close to Pairadise.

    I'd like to travel back in America and stay with the Pilgrims of the first Thanksgiving dinner - knowing what it is now I'd love to experience what it was really like back then with all of the sights and sounds and hardships. I'd also love to see what was actually served at that dinner and how it tasted back then as compared to know.

    To participate in the Tea Party

    By Barbara Silvia on November 19, 2010 10:39 AM

    I would love to drive from the East Coast to the West Coast. I think that many people who live in the U.S travel outside the U.S or always to one particular place. There is so much to see throughout the U.S and I would love the opportunity to see as much of the Country that we live in.

    By Missy on November 19, 2010 10:41 AM

    I would go back to the late fifties. Travel throughout the US to witness the beginning of the real rock and roll era. Be there to see Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper in person!

    By Michael Niec on November 19, 2010 10:49 AM

    As a traveller and someone who appreciates wildlife, amazing landscapes, and natural wonders, I would travel to either coastal California in 1840's or Alaska in the 1880's. I would love to see these truly beautiful places in all their unspoilt splendor.

    As a humanitarian, I would travel to New York City, on 9/10/2001 or early 9/11 and warn everyone of the impending tragedy that was about to take place on American soil.

    Return and visit London England. pre/post war 1945.
    the war museum is fascinating, the history that really brings the world . post war history . the devastation, the old buildings. all within walking distance. It gives me chills of what people whent through. The history of England and how North America was involved. How we are truly one people. It brings close the November rememberance day of the vets.

    By Michael Farnsworth on November 19, 2010 10:53 AM

    I would like to visit Vancouver, British Columbia on the day is was discovered by Captain Vancouver on 3 June, 1792. It would be fascinating to see what is now Stanley Park and the rest of what is now Vancouver would have looked like with all the old growth forest in its pristine state.

    Then I could invite George and the crew onshore for some fresh moose burgers.

    My husband and I will retire from the ministry then, and such a trip would enable us to experience the various cultures and people of our planet up close and personal, enabling us to be better world citizens and ambassadors.

    What a dream! Thank you for this opportunity.

    I went on a photo safari in Africa in 1998 as a single person. I am now a married person who is forever ramming African paraphernalia in her husband's face.
    I would like to take him there to share all the experiences I had before we are both too old to withstand the rigors of being on safari. Now with the "joy of digital photography" we won't have to pack all that film...

    I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A CURIOUS PERSON AND IF ABLE I WOULD LIKE TO EXPERIENCE THE WORLD IN THE YEAR 3000. CONSIDERING THE DISCOVERIES IN MY SEVENTY YEARS ON THIS PLANET I'D LOVE TO KNOW WHERE AND HOW WE EXIST THAT FAR IN THE FUTURE.

    By Angie on November 19, 2010 11:26 AM

    The California coast was a place that my Mom always wanted to visit. If I could travel back to 1986 before she became ill and later passed away, we'd drive the Highway 1 together. To have a special time back with my Mom would be more than fantastic!

    By Melissa Lima on November 19, 2010 11:28 AM

    I would travel to London, England
    In the year 1600
    To attend some of the original stagings of Shakespeare's work
    So I could write a book about the experience and direct some accurate recreations.

    By Wendy on November 19, 2010 11:30 AM

    I would travel to the UK to visit Stonehenge. I would go back through pre-history to learn all the secrets of this mysterious place to the time when early man used the site. I would learn how it was built and why.

    By Peter on November 19, 2010 11:48 AM

    I would go back and be Henry VIII's personal doctor, cure him of his diabetes, cardiac failure, and so on, and then accept my knighthood and today own about 10% of Britain.

    By Dan on November 19, 2010 11:49 AM

    I would like travel back to the Main Street of America, Route 66.

    I would choose to travel in the 1960s, the hey day of The Mother Road and cars built for cruising.

    This wouldn't have been my choice a mere month ago but, a recent trip across much of the United States opened my eyes to this great and sadly, almost forgotten, piece fo American lore. My wife (who travelled the entire length of Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica as a child) and I tried to connect with this great old highway wherever we could. Unfortunately, little is left for our children and grandchildren to experience. We in North America are often short sighted when it comes to the recognition and preservation of our recent past. It was interesting to note that many of the Best Western hotels at which we stayed along the way had key cards embossed with the evolution of the Best Wetern signs that would have dottted the old highways of the United States and Canada.

    By cooper on November 19, 2010 11:51 AM

    I would travel far enough into the future that I could see a world without hunger, or violence, racisim, hatred, crime. All of the things that burden the world we live in today. I wonder just how far in the future that will be...........

    By Thomas Delia on November 19, 2010 12:03 PM

    I would travel to the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. I would love to see and meet the men who signed this great document, which represents the birth of our country.

    By Susan Brewer on November 19, 2010 12:31 PM

    I would travel to Germany about 1890 because that's where my grandmother and grandfather came from. I never got to meet either of them, and I really feel I missed a great deal of my heritage.

    By Melanie on November 19, 2010 12:38 PM

    I would go back to June 18, 2006.I would go to Lasalle Qc.I would go to this place and time to stop my sister from getting into the taxi.This way she would still be alive and with her family.It's really the only place I would like to go to if I could time travel.

    By Karen Veronesi on November 19, 2010 1:16 PM

    No need to spend ANY time thinking about the answer to this question. While it is undoubtedly boring to others, it took no time for me. I would go to Mamaroneck, NY, an NYC suburb, in November, 1990. That was the last time I saw my father, as a minor surgical procedure went wrong. I would either convince him to decide against the optional surgery or, at least spend a full day enjoying his company. I would use the time machine to then bring him to Massachusetts, 2010, to meet his first two grandsons, of whom he would be very proud. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    By Robert McGuire on November 19, 2010 1:27 PM

    1.Where you would visit? My Parents Island where they gew up in Portugual


    2.At what point in history you would go? Mid 1950'


    3.Why?
    I would like to see what times were like back then, without all the electronics, all the vehicles on the road. When you had to make up your own games, kids spent time outside enjoying the outdoors in the sunshine. When you wanted eggs or milk you went to the barn not the store. It would be a neat experience and a much need perspective of what life was like for them.

    I would visit national leadership groups who were signing documents that pushed forward the personal freedoms and rights of their peoples.

    At what point in history you would go?
    I would travel to the time and place that the document was being signed and put into effect.

    Why?

    To celebrate and uphold the progress mankind has made to improve the situations of people across many cultures and nations.

    By donald mccaslin on November 19, 2010 2:09 PM

    I would travel back to when Jesus Christ was on the earth. I would like to experience his miracles and his crucifiction. There are many who believe in him and many who don't. Even some who were there didn't believe in him according to the bible. I would just like to see it all for myself.

    By Lauretta Friese on November 19, 2010 2:17 PM

    Sadly, I would go back to November 2007, my Dad and I had an argument over something stupid. I told him I loved him but enough was enough and I hung up, he died of a heart attack 3 month later and I never spoke with him again. My mother died 4 months later and my best friend 2 months after that. It's been very lonely since then.

    I would like to visit Venice, FL in 2011 and stay at our favorite Best Western Suites. It is the best of all your places that we have ever stayed at. They have top management and all other employees and wonderful rooms and the area is very relaxing.

    By Anna Margaret Binder on November 19, 2010 4:57 PM

    I've been blessed to travel to 49 states, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, western Europe, so only Italy and Alaska are on my list at any point in the future. But as a breast cancer survivor and mother of two daughters and two sons aged 17 to 27 I wish I could travel to the future and witness their weddings and the births of their children. Not that I want to rush them, but I would love to be around for those great happy ocasions.

    By Brenda on November 19, 2010 5:21 PM

    I would like to return to Summerland where we spent a few days camping this summer. I would like to return next summer but this time relax rather than camp and cycle through the area. It was a lovely spot where we could take in the beauty and richness of our Okanagan.

    Las Vegas in the late 1950's & early 1960's during the Rat Pack era when the Mob provided cheap rooms, cheap food & top-notch but cheap entertainment before the Corporate Bean Counters ruined things in the 1980's.

    By Zell Graham on November 19, 2010 7:42 PM

    I would like to go Niagara Falls.
    The timeframe I woudl prefer would when there was no barriers, before the commercial aspect took over.
    Why? Because I would like to share this with my guy, standing there, feeling the mist - the romantic natural outdoors.

    By maureen bishop on November 19, 2010 8:14 PM

    I would like to visit Perth Australia - tomorrow - to see two old friends that I met on a bus tour in England some 20 years ago this past summer- when we met we felt like we had known each other for many years - why? I guess it was that I was from Canada - she from Australia- and both being Commonwelath Countries - we seemed to have a lot in common.

    anytime in america

    By Susan Brennan on November 19, 2010 9:18 PM

    I would like to have been in Germany in the 1450's when the printing press was invented and the Gutenberg Bibles were printed. From that point in history began the spread of ideas and knowledge to all people. (Of course, as a woman, it would have been a few more centuries before I would have been taught to read and been educated.)

    By m petree on November 20, 2010 12:48 AM

    Traveling back to Germany in the renaissance, to see the castles, the knights, the inventions would be awesome. Besides, some ancestors were from the Palatinate, and I would like to see what their lives were like.

    By Diane Bunton on November 20, 2010 12:57 AM

    The place I would visit is Israel at the time when Jesus was walking the earth because I would like to have listened to His teaching in person...

    By Kendall on November 20, 2010 1:36 AM

    Where you would visit?
    Jamaica

    At what point in history you would go?
    Prior to 1494

    Why?
    To experience the Island the way my Grandmother described it before Columbus stopped by.

    By Bernard on November 20, 2010 3:27 AM

    I would love to visit New Zealand...

    When: around X-mas and end of the year, to celebrate my partner's January 1st birthday and New Year...

    Why: in a warm and multicultural country still preserved by nature...

    By Bernard on November 20, 2010 3:31 AM

    Where: New Zealand

    When: at X-Mas and end of the year time

    Why: warm climate in a multicultural country still preserved by nature a sit might have been decades ago...

    By ron kaminski on November 20, 2010 4:50 AM

    The end of World War Two in San Fransisco or London or Paris. What more glorious moment then to witness the spontaneous joy and relief and hope for the future then at that moment. It was like being a Mets fan after the last out in the 1969 World Series. The camaraderie and love and joy were overwhelming

    Where you would visit?
    I would visit my daughter's home.
    At what point in history you would go?
    In 2040
    Why?
    I would like to see how she is doing in life.
    I would also like to see how we dealt with the topics of our collective angst from today. What is the new collective angst?

    By Luke on November 20, 2010 7:07 AM

    I would travel to the Continental Congress. It would be great to hear and perhaps even take part of the discussion about the founding of the U.S.--- with all the claims of "what the founding fathers meant" going on in politics today, it might be enlightening and even surprising what they were thinking and why. If I could take (and return with) my iphone, I could have recordings of it all!

    By Roger on November 20, 2010 7:14 AM

    Where - Alaska

    Year 1920

    To see the gold rush - how history is made

    By Vicki on November 20, 2010 7:25 AM

    California, The Bay area
    San Francisco

    I would love to see and be in the Gold Rush era. The makings of a state, a city and the changes it made around the globe. The immigration of so many cultures coming to an area for one purpose. And to watch San Francisco come alive and develop into an economic center.
    I love adventure and I am sure I would have uprooted to be involved in this opportunity. There was hope for a change for all peoples.

    By Gordon on November 20, 2010 8:42 AM

    Where- Paris

    When- 1920's

    Why- imagine who you might run into, name the artist, or writer, against the backdrop of Paris.

    By Nicole McLain on November 20, 2010 8:51 AM

    Philadelphia, Pa, cir 1787, To have been witness to the drafting of the U.S. Constitution, to have been present at the debates, to know the intentions and hopes those men had for our country as they designed our democracy would be the ultimate trip.

    By WayneGutowsky on November 20, 2010 9:05 AM

    I would like to be in Montana on June 25 & 26, 1876.

    It was the day that the Battle of the Little BigHorn was fought.

    WHY!!! I would love to observe what really happen to Custer and his troops. Alot of what we know today is bases on speculation.

    By Denis Inman on November 20, 2010 9:09 AM

    I would like to go back to a time when my wife and I were younger. Despite the fact that the places we lived and our experiences paralleled in many ways, we did not meet until later in life. I wish we would have met earlier so that we would have had more of the happiness and contentment that we share today.

    By Jacqueline Winter on November 20, 2010 9:21 AM

    I would like to go back to Boston -

    During the Tea Party era

    I am originally from England and I would love to see what mistakes were made through British colonization and ask the current world powers if they are making the same mistakes? History repeats itself?

    By Ronald Latimer on November 20, 2010 10:16 AM

    5th century BC India or Persia , To witness the Extraterrestrials as described in the Mahabharata , and Sanskrit writings as they deal with the first human societies.

    By Gillian Massie on November 20, 2010 11:02 AM

    I would go to Dallas, TX with Marion Janssens (posted October 30)
    back to Nov-22, 1963, and help save the life of President JF Kennedy. Then a quick visit to Haight Ashbury in San Fran!

    By Monty Shuster on November 20, 2010 11:02 AM

    200 years in the future here in the US.

    Why? Sometimes I wonder if we can make it through some of the troubles that we have, but then we are American's and have endured a lot. It would be nice to know if the sci-fy films are right. Do we commute in hover cars? Have we cured cancer? Are we, as a country, still as strong and important in world affairs as we are today? Are we living the lives that we want to live?

    Of course, it would be nice to know the next 20 years of Superbowl scores also!

    By Chris on November 20, 2010 12:26 PM

    I would travel back to 1985 when my parents and I went to Wimbledon in England. We had a great time as a family and I miss that.

    By shirl johnson on November 20, 2010 12:32 PM

    I have always wanted to travel to Sweden. My grandmother and grandfather emigrated after their marriage. She had her first girl on the boat coming over. I want to see whe they were born and find out some mysteries from their past.

    By Margaret Jackson on November 20, 2010 12:33 PM

    I would love to travel back to 1925. To live during the time my parents were young and experience what they had to live through so I could better understand the way of the world today. To ve able to meet my grandparents and other relations that I never knew. This would be so incredible , beyond words.

    By Peggy on November 20, 2010 1:29 PM

    I would definately go back into history and visit Gettysburg, PA during the Civil War era, 1863. There is so much history there and too many slaughters. The dirt roads; the bridge; the battlefields; how they townspeople dressed. Listen to the stories of the American people, how the North and South fought. It is most interesting and to look where we are now in time. Sooo much has changed.

    By Kathy Mroczkowski on November 20, 2010 1:47 PM

    I would like to visit Israel in the time that Jesus Christ was on earth sometime near 30 AD to be able to see and hear Him in person and feel His Love.

    By Drew on November 20, 2010 1:54 PM

    I would go to Greece in the 1700"s. I want ti learn the old way of Greek cooking

    By Robin on November 20, 2010 2:13 PM

    I would like to visit 1964 London. It would be fun to witness the "mod scene," the birth of Beatlemania, and all the hoopla surounding the British Invasion bands of the era.

    The Band's New Year's Eve show Madison Square Garden in New York. The recording is superb.

    By Marcia St. Claire on November 20, 2010 6:14 PM

    1066 England to watch the Battle of Hastings to see how William the Conquerer defeated his cousin Harold ,Then fast forward to 1078 Bayxeau, France to see the completion of the Tapestry displayed in the Bayeau Cathedral by William's Brother, the Cardinal, and determine the purpose of the weaving of this dynamic story -- propoganda for William or a moral lesson for the French demonstrating the awful consequences of breaking a solemn oath as Harald Hedrada was shown to do on the tapestry.

    By Matt Emery on November 20, 2010 6:26 PM

    I would time travel to Paris, France in the year 1889 to see how art and culture were transforming the city into the cultural center it is known for today. I would specifically want to see the Eiffel Tower which had been built to celebrate that year's World Fair.

    By Cindy on November 20, 2010 7:38 PM

    I would travel to Ibaraki, Japan on October 9th, 1991, to participate in the sunrise opening of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Umbrella project. Then I would fly over the length of the installation to enjoy the fluidity of the brilliant dots flowing across the landscape.

    By Paul Gunning on November 20, 2010 9:33 PM

    I would like to go to Tahiti with my wife around the time Gaugin was there so i could see it unspoiled and watch him paint.

    By Anthony McCarty on November 21, 2010 7:11 AM

    I would visit Seattle and sillicon valley in the 1970's. Ses boring? Not if you will be the one to invent google, Microsoft, facebook, apple, and the future iPod :-)

    By Thomas Hoh on November 21, 2010 8:41 AM

    I would have liked to have made the short trip to NYC on VJ Day ending WWII. The feeling of total euphoria and elation must have been undescribable. Thank you for this opportunity to win.

    By Jennifer Pinney-Rodger on November 21, 2010 8:43 AM

    I would love to travel to the area around Jerusalem at the time that Jesus Christ walked the earth. As a Christian I'd like to better understand the culture that existed at the time he lived and experience the excitement and controversy around the god-man at the centre of my faith.

    By Bob Gamber on November 21, 2010 9:14 AM

    To Jackson Hole in the early 1800's to winterover with the mountain men. Even with all I've read, I can barely imagine what it was like to be that far forward of "civilization".

    By Robert T. Turner on November 21, 2010 9:48 AM

    I would travel to the end of time to see how the next beginning of space and time would begin for the next universe would be created. A different existence altogether.

    By Ryn Covine on November 21, 2010 9:55 AM

    I would travel to Providence, Rhode Island, in 1922 to meet H. P. Lovecraft, have dinner and discuss how his imaginative writes spawn the American Gothic horror of the Cthulhu mythos in his pulp fction magazine stories. To understand the mind of the horror genre genius.

    By Linda R Thompson on November 21, 2010 1:59 PM

    I'd like to return to Dublin Ireland.

    I'd take the Travel Time Machine back 5000 years to visit the people who built the fascinating Newgrange Tombs.

    Many questions are unanswered about the neolithic markings carved into the stones around and in the tombs. I 'd love to learn more about their way of life and the struggles they were trying to overcome.

    By Jeff on November 21, 2010 4:43 PM

    Where: The islands of our 50th State: Hawaii
    When: To go back again last year (2009), after I came home from a tour of duty in Iraq.
    Why: The beauty, the charm, the magic and the grace of the people and the islands. The islands will have a hold on you and will call you back again and again.

    By Richard Allen on November 21, 2010 5:39 PM

    1. Philadelphia

    2. July 4, 1776

    3. I'd like to be asked to sign the Declaration of Independence along the 56 members of that congress and feel the thrill of that day when we declared our wonderful USA a new nation!

    By Harold Gerbrandt on November 21, 2010 6:36 PM

    My Mum was born in the South of England in 1924 and lost her Mum at the age of 7. I would llike to go back to that time and meet my Grandmother and see what Mums' life was llike.

    Would love to stay near the Ocean by Cape Hatteras, NC Lighthouses. Just a beautiful place.

    By Paula on November 21, 2010 8:05 PM

    Salem, Massachusetts---during the Salem Witch Trials. To freak them out by bringing back a smartphone, ipod, maybe a DVD like Transformers or District 9, a cd player, and maybe a luxury car equipped w/GPS, heated seats that remember your seat setting, cruise control, auto parallel parking, and other fancy gadgets, etc Let them think twice about whom they've been killing as witches and wonder if the killings were mistakes.

    By Patrick McEtchin on November 22, 2010 7:30 AM

    As I step into the time machine with my girlfriend, I set the dial to April 28, 2009 and I am whisked back in time to Hawaii. It is my 50th birthday. I am standing on top of the Best Western Coconut Inn, Wakiki penthouse suite.

    This day and our entire stay was one of the most enchanting time in my life. The accomadations were immecable as we embarked upon our journey to take in paradise. Romance was in the air as I soaked in the beautiful Hawaiian sun and water.

    I decided to propose to this beautiful woman as I comtemplated a new chapter in my life. Life really can begin again after 50!

    She said yes! So we do not need a time machine because we will re-visit your resort next year for our honeymoon.cant wait...............

    By Kim on November 22, 2010 9:59 AM

    I want to go in the present time.

    Where: I would visit Canada

    When: In a time of the late 1800's to early 1900's

    Why: I would like to go back in time and see how life was then, experience the joy of children playing outside and families eating dinner together and having a tv in just one room so we all sat together. I would enjoy the simplification of those times.

    Most importantly, I would not yet have had my only son who recently passed away at the very young age of 24 years. If I could only go back knowing what I now know perhaps I could have saved him. If only time could go backwards.

    By Shirley on November 25, 2010 5:26 AM

    I would go to Nags Head, N.C. in the 1950's. Nags Head is my peaceful place I love to go and the 1950's is an era I've always wanted to live in because it seems such a more peaceful, happy and less violant world then.

    By Jerri on November 25, 2010 7:40 AM

    I would love to return to Miami-Dade County, year 1978, when I "almost" called off my first wedding. What a mistake that was!! My life would have been completely different if I had gone with my instincts, called it off, and waited for my wonderful husband, and the great life that we now have together. Thanks for the thought!

    By Russell on November 25, 2010 11:36 PM

    I'd choose to travel the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon moving West in the mid 1800's. I am not certain I would have made it then, or even now, but I saw the wagon ruts around the Scottsbluff (Nebraska) monument, and I was impressed by the strength, courage, and perseverance of these pioneers.

    By Tim on November 26, 2010 10:38 PM

    I would travel back to Tahiti or Hawaii a generation before Capt. Cook and his motley crew showed up to experience the wonders and mysteries of Polynesia first-hand without the rats, cats and odd customs of visiting Europeans changed everything. I would fish and paddle my outrigger from island to island, catch some longboard surfing beyond the reef and avoid politics so to live to a ripe old age, healthy, wealthy and wise.

    By Roxanne on November 27, 2010 3:14 PM

    I would travel back to the time and place of Bin Laden's birth. I would take whatever steps necessary to end his life on that very day without reservation.

    I would travel 1000 years into the future. Then, I would log into Best Western Rewards program and see if I had enough points to take the trip to the colony on Mars. "Hello, Best Western, are you there?

    By Harry Grace on November 28, 2010 11:43 AM

    I would travel 1ooo years into the future. Then, I would log into Best Western Rewards and see if I had enough points to take the trip to the Mars colony. "Hello", anyone else want to go?

    By Barbara Jo Alexander on December 11, 2010 1:50 PM

    If I could travel through time I would go back to Venice in its prime. What a great place. To be there when it was established and the journey was began.

    By Mara on December 14, 2010 1:59 PM
