• Explore the capital city of Jordan this winter

    2011-12-29

    Cities that have both a rich history and modern amenities to offer travelers are sometimes the most unique places to visit on a great getaway. Baby boomers looking to take a trip abroad may wish to consider Amman, Jordan, this winter, as it has both a unique past and a fun urban feel. Guests may check out the ancient Roman Amphitheatre then peruse the wealth of shops and restaurants that can also be found downtown.

    Those who want to check out one of Amman's classic forms of transportation can head to the Hejaz Railway Station. According to World Travel Guide, classic steam trains and locomotives are still used for tours and corporate trips.

    A visit to the Al-Husseini Mosque is worth it for anyone interested in architecture or Middle Eastern tradition. This place of worship was created in the early 1900s and underwent renovations 80 years later, adding more polished pink and white stone.

    Travelers who head to Amman can go to the Visitor's center near the Amphitheatre to gather some material on what is happening around town for guests, reports the country's tourism board. Visitors can also find out about tour groups that organize excursions throughout the city to ensure that the best attractions and historical landmarks are not missed.
