This week the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show is broadcasting from the iconic St. Regis Washington, D.C. Joining Peter Greenberg will be Roger Dow, CEO of the US Travel Association, with a report on presidential primary campaigns and how they provide a mini economic boom for the states where certain primaries are held. He also provides an update on the Zika virus and how that is impacting worldwide travel. Every U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge has visited the St. Regis, and while the inauguration may be nine months away, Roxanne Roberts of the Washington Post talks about inaugural excitement and inaugural politics that’s starting to happen even before we know who is a candidate. She discusses how people are booking their trip to D.C. regardless of who wins. Sarah Marquis, Author of Wild by Nature, describes her fascinating and surreal three year trek around the world without contacting another human being. Talk about solo travel. David and Nycci Nellis, Hosts of Foodie and the Beast, dive into to best restaurants of Washington, D.C. with some very interesting surprises. Wendy Perrin, Founder of WendyPerrin.com, expounds on why even though many cites around the world are vying for tourism dollars, some areas like Barcelona, Spain, and Cinque Terre in Italy are considering imposing limitations on visitor numbers. There’s all that and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the St. Regis Washington, D.C.
