Columbus Day Travel Deals
There was a man in the late 1400s. He had a dream. Explorer at heart, he set out to fulfill his dream. The dream of sailing to India and China. But like so many great discoveries, the man never reached India or China. Instead, he found a continent that no one knew of in Europe. The continent that would later lead to the birth of two of the most influential countries in the world. This man - Christopher Columbus - found what is today known as the Americas. The Italian born sailor/explorer set sail for “India” in August of 1492 and reached the Americas in October of the same year.
Columbus, in his dream and discovery, was the embodiment of the true American spirit. He envisioned traveling to great lands & settlement on the land found, and he achieved the same. He dared the mighty Pacific, he sailed to the lands that no other had ever before him. The day of his landing is celebrated all over the Americas. The festival is known by various names but the origin of all of them remains the same.
