6. Take the train.


"It was 'not like an ordinary, human kind of train at all,' one writer proclaimed in 1906, four years after {the 20th Century train's} maiden run. It boasted electric lights before most American homes did. Its restaurant compared with the best in each city. There were on board tailors, valets, ladies' maids, stenographers, manicurists and a barber. Baths could be taken in either fresh or salt water." -

9. Spend time in the great outdoors.


Or in the new garden grotto that you have time to maintain.

"When the sunlight is high, a shady garden grotto offers quiet respite and a poetical spot in which to ponder life's mysteries." -All the Time in the World

10. Have that long lunch you always want to take.


"In the United States, audacious sky-scarping construction seize the popular imagination, as did the men who built them. As pioneering beam walkers ventured into midair, the physical danger made the men seem superhuman. The LondonDaily Herald called New York's steelworkers "classical heroes in the flesh." -All the Time in the World

13. Head to the circus.

"At the turn of the century, nearly a hundred small circuses crisscrossed the United States, traveling rivers, roads and rails, as enthusiasts gathered in the predawn hours to greet them at every stop." - All the Time in the World
