Vacation Ideas: 4 Must See Iconic Structures

Here is yet another idea for how to decide on a timeshare vacation destination - iconic structures. In other words, you've seen pictures of these in magazines such as the National Geographic and The Smithsonian, heard about them on television's History Channel, and most likely have seen movies that featured them. How about a vacation to get up close and personal? Consider these:

  1. The Eiffel Tower, Paris, FrancePhotobucket
    Vacation with a Paris timeshare rental, and take the time to get to know this icon of Paris in all of its many moods. Surrounded by daffodils and tulips in the spring, orange and red chestnut trees in the fall and the splendor of lights at night, this graceful, lacey ironwork will tug at your heart at any time. The Eiffel Tower was built to mark the centennial of the French Revolution. It will always tower above Paris as the city has a building height limit of seven stories. Ride the cable cars up to the top observation deck for a breathtaking view of the City of Lights. On the way up, stop at the café for a special Parisian pastry.

  2. The Louvre
    While staying at your Paris timeshare rental, a must-see is the world-famous Louvre. One of the most easily recognized museums in the world, the Louvre has the distinction of being originally built as a museum in the 12th century, then being converted into a Royal Palace in the 14th century. It didn't come full circle until being turned into a public museum after the French Revolution. The structure itself is a beautiful as the 35,000 pieces of art it exhibits.

  3. Empire State Building, NYC
    This is as iconic as you get. Once the tallest building in the world, this Art Deco style structure can be seen in just about every movie ever filmed in New York City. Rent a New York City timeshare and enjoy this New York monument by taking the elevator to the 102nd Floor Observatory. From here on a clear day you can see 80 miles. For an additional $15 ticket you can go 16 floors higher. Even when you're not actually on site, you can enjoy this grand skyscraper as it lights up each night, the colors and designs often changing to match holidays and special observances.

  4. Big Ben, London, England
    An England timeshare rental or exchange will get you to the world's most famous clock. And here is a piece of trivia to know before you go - "Big Ben" is actually the name of one of the bells in the clock tower. But over the years that name has become synonymous with the huge structure. The massive bell itself is 7 1/2 feet tall and weighs over 13 tons. The clock tower is part of the Houses of Parliament, and a special light above the clock indicates when Parliament is in session. And another piece of trivia: Big Ben's timekeeping is strictly regulated by a stack of coins placed on the huge pendulum.
