In the annual list of businesses voted the Best of the Beach, some names appear again and again. These are the places tourists will make time to visit during their vacations and locals frequent throughout the year.
Ryan Henning, assistant elephant manager with Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus, introduces Asia, one of the five Asian elephants performing with Circus Xtreme, which has shows at PNC Arena this weekend. Mable, a nine-year-old Asian elephant, also makes an appearance. All the performing elephants will retire in May 2016 to the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida.
