8 Oscars-Inspired Vacations

For true Lincoln buffs Frontiers Travel is offering a Lincoln specific tour accompanied by a Lincoln specialist tour guide. Guest will experience the era on a two-day tour that visits both Gettysburg and Washington, D.C., while focusing on the life and impact of Abraham Lincoln on US history. It includes a tour of the National Archive; Ford theatre; The Petersen House where Lincoln dies after being shot; a tour of the Lincoln Memorial and more. Cost of the program is based on four guests and starts at about $4,000. The price does not include hotel accommodations or meals.

Life of Pi Though difficult – and probably not desirable to the average traveler – to recreate an experience that primarily takes place on a life boat, if the movie Life of Pi has you inspired to visit India, here are two very different ways to do it.

First, the lap of luxury: A jungle retreat at Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore. Adjacent to Rajasthan's famous Ranthambhore National Park and Tiger Reserve, Oberoi will take guests on a tiger safari to spot Richard look-alikes and led by a local guide. Guests can also spend a night in a luxury tent under the stars to experience sleeping in the great outdoors, but on dry land. Rates from $777 per person for a two-night stay with the "Unforgettable Holidays" package. The price includes daily breakfast and one dinner per stay; the tiger safari is extra and priced from $25 per person.

Or, experience a bit of India by bike. Bike Tours Direct calls their "Land of the Maharajas" tour a "nod to the Life of Pi" where travelers will spend most of their days cycling through the rural and rustic Rajasthan. The tour will pass through a game reserve, bustling markets and the romantic city of Udaipur. Price for the 12-day tour is $2,671 and includes accommodations.
