An Evening with Rick Steves

Steves will discuss travel with a goal of good stewardship and a responsibility to be an ambassador to, and for, the entire planet

WEDU PBS is proud to present an evening with Rick Steves Monday, February 10, at 6:00pm. The special presentation is sponsored by Tampa Theatre’s LIMELIGHT Speaker Series.

In a lively and fun presentation, Steves will discuss travel with a goal of good stewardship and a responsibility to be an ambassador to, and for, the entire planet. Drawing from lessons he learned while exploring Europe, Central America, Asia and the Middle East, Steves outlines how by traveling thoughtfully people can make their trip an investment in a better world and take home the greatest souvenir: a broader perspective. The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.

Steves, acclaimed for his bestselling guidebooks and public television series which is aired locally on WEDU PBS, believes there is more to travel than good-value hotels, great art and tasty cuisine. The greatest value of travel, he finds, is that it widens people’s horizons beyond their own hometown. When people implement that expanded world view, he says, a vacation of cultural immersion can pay off. According to Steves, Americans who travel thoughtfully can have the time of their lives and come home smarter, with a better understanding of the interconnectedness of today’s world.

Tickets are $25.00 at the Box Office and $28 (total, including fees) online, and will go on sale at 10:00am Friday, December 13.
