Where Should Ron Artest Go on Vacation?; Travelocity Wants to Know; Online Poll Offers Ten Suggestions, Seeks Other Ideas

SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 23, 2004–He has almost a whole year to ponder, make amends and, yes, travel. Basketball player Ron Artest needs places to go, and Travelocity(R) is looking for help in giving him travel advice. You can vote from one of ten Travelocity-nominated locations and/or submit a write-in candidate at www.travelocity.com/vote. Here are Travelocity’s nominees:

    --  Knockemstiff, Ohio -- Legend has it that, fittingly, a brawl
        in a local establishment spawned the name. Knockemstiff is
        located just west of Chillicothe, near a lonely country road.
        Stay at the Christopher Inn and Suites in Chillicothe (from
        $72 on Travelocity), one of the area's best-kept secrets.

    --  Ding Dong, Texas -- Located in Bell County (get it -- like the
        bell in a boxing ring) in the north-central part of the state,
        approximately 60 miles North of Austin, Ding Dong is a rural
        community with a trading post. The saying goes that, "If you
        find yourself in Ding Dong, you had to have been looking for
        it." There are several hotels in Killeen, just eight miles
        away. The La Quinta Killeen (from $81 on Travelocity), is a
        good bet for the comfort-loving but budget-minded traveler.

    --  Deep Hole, Nevada -- Located northwest of Gerlach, about two
        hours from Reno, this ghost town is right on the edge of the
        Black Rock Desert. Locals recommend that anyone in the area
        stop at Bruno's in Gerlach for lunch or dinner. Bruno's also
        has a motel, complete with TVs that may be black and white,
        but still pull in major sporting events. Another must-see spot
        near Deep Hole is Planet X Pottery, where nationally
        recognized artist John Bogard creates beautiful pots and
        dishes in his solar-powered studio.

    --  Lake Placid, New York -- This town in the Adirondacks is named
        for the calm lake it borders, but it's best known for hosting
        the Winter Olympics in 1932 and 1980. There's skiing (North
        Face is already open), fishing, hiking, and sightseeing.
        Visitors can chill out at the Holiday Inn Resort in Lake
        Placid for rates starting at $112 on Travelocity.

    --  Mars or Moon, Pennsylvania -- Sometimes you need a little
        distance to see things clearly. And sometimes you need a lot.
        Mars is 20 miles north of Pittsburgh, and is home of Max &
        Erma's, where visitors can load up on comfort food and highly
        touted chocolate-chip cookies. Travelers on a budget can stay
        at the Comfort Inn in Mars (from $69 a night on Travelocity).
        Moon Township is located near the Pittsburgh airport, so there
        are plenty of restaurants and hotels, including the Crowne
        Plaza Pittsburgh Airport for rates starting as low as $129 a
        night on Travelocity.

    --  Solitude, Indiana -- There's not much to do in Solitude, but
        that's just as well, because if you're in Solitude, you're
        looking for solitude, right? Just west of Evansville, halfway
        between Louisville and St. Louis in southern Indiana, this is
        a farming community so down-to-earth that even a big star
        would feel grounded. The Quality Inn North in Evansville is a
        good bet at $69.95 on Travelocity.

    --  Hope, Arkansas -- Made famous by hometown hero and
        comeback-kid Bill Clinton, Hope was originally known as the
        home of the world's largest watermelons. When not spitting
        seeds, you can tour the birthplace, childhood homes, and
        former schools of Mr. Clinton. The Holiday Inn Express in Hope
        (from $68 on Travelocity) received a five-out-of-five rating
        in Travelocity's hotel reviews. It's a great place to get some
        rest and dream of good times ahead.

    --  Purgatory, Colorado -- It's been renamed Durango Mountain
        Resort, but it will forever be called Purgatory by locals.
        Huge peaks surround the resort on three sides, and the high
        desert country borders the resort to the south. Purgatory has
        an abundance of fine ski days with light snowfalls followed by
        sun. There are several hotels to choose from, including the
        Doubletree (from $79 on Travelocity) --downtown Durango's only
        luxury hotel. The property sits on the beautiful banks of the
        Animas River, located just minutes from downtown shopping and
        the historic Durango & Silverton narrow-gauge railroad.

    --  Friendly, West Virginia -- Located in Tyler County, near the
        Ohio River in the northwestern part of the state, Friendly is
        approximately 230 miles from Washington, D.C., and 85 miles
        from Charleston. You'll feel recharged after experiencing
        Southern hospitality at the Wells Inn (from $59 on
        Travelocity) in nearby Sisterville -- established in 1894.

    --  Truth or Consequences, New Mexico -- Located in southwestern
        New Mexico, on I-25 between Las Cruces and Albuquerque, the
        city formerly known as Hot Springs is renowned for its
        wonderful climate and recreational facilities. Named after a
        1950s radio show, Truth or Consequences is known as the "The
        Water Wonderland of New Mexico." Wash your cares away with a
        stay at the Best Western Hot Springs Inn, where rooms start at
        just $52 per night on Travelocity.
