George Ferris built the first Ferris Wheel for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The giant wheel had 36 cars that could hold up to 60 people for a total of passengers at a time and was as high as a 26 story building.
What another pinner said: Cinque Terre, Italy. My most favorite place in Italy next to Venice that I have been too. We hiked the off beaten trail to the five fishing villages of this place. It was well worth the effort, gorgeous.
