BLACKOUT – Dining in the Dark

2019-12-15T17:09:14+00:00December 15, 2019|Travel Destinations|0 Comments

It’s no secret that Las Vegas has some of the best dining options in the world. From steaks to sushi, the city caters to your every desire. During my most recent Las Vegas adventure, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to try a truly unique dining experience, and I was not disappointed. My husband and I had heard about this relatively new restaurant BLACKOUT - Dining in the Dark. Sounds interesting, right? Eating an entire meal without actually being able to see the food, or anyone that is with you? My immediate thoughts were how I would [...]

                  Does the mere title of this blog make you break out in hives? Is your eye twitching yet? The thought of traveling long distances with younger kids can be intimidating.

If you have ever been to the South in the summer, you know unbearably, hot humid weather is a guarantee. A great way to beat the heat is to take a trip to the beach!

SeaWorld is a great addition to your Orlando-area vacation!  This park has a lot to offer whether you are there to learn more about animals, see shows, or experience some amazing thrill rides.  Our girls love marine life and both dream of being marine biologist.  We decided to take a weekend getaway to Orlando over Father’s Day weekend to celebrate our eldest’s 9th birthday!   There are several add-on options when booking your visit to SeaWorld.  I wanted to try the all-day dining.  For around $130 TOTAL, we were able to keep our family of four well fed for the [...]

Top Reasons to purchase a beverage package on Royal Caribbean

2019-06-17T17:06:46+00:00June 17, 2019|Cruising, Royal Caribbean, Travel Destinations|0 Comments

“Is the beverage package worth it?”  That is a question I am frequently asked by clients.  As a traveler, I never purchased one because I didn’t think it was worth the money and would not save me any money.  As a travel agent, I am willing to try everything once, so I can offer well-researched advice.  After booking our most recent cruise, and first on Royal Caribbean, it was time to research! Royal Caribbean offers several drink packages, although we only considered two – the refreshment package and the deluxe beverage package.  Both packages offer fountain sodas, Coca-Cola Freestyle beverages, [...]

2019-03-20T16:52:52+00:00March 20, 2019|Travel Destinations|0 Comments

During Spring Break, we found ourselves traveling to Clearwater Beach, FL.  This is consistently rated a Top Beach on TripAdvisor.  If you visit America’s top-rated beach, you have to stay on the beach, right?!  We were in serious need of relaxation and time to reconnect.  My husband and I both have demanding jobs – and we love them – but still need to be able to focus solely on family.  After TONS of research, I found Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach Resort. We did have another reason for selecting Clearwater Beach as our first destination for Spring Break - our oldest [...]

Five Reasons to Visit Puerto Rico

2018-01-23T06:00:39+00:00January 23, 2018|Travel Destinations|0 Comments

  I had the opportunity to visit Puerto Rico with my husband in late November. I was a little wary – a large portion of the island was (and still is) without power after Hurricane Maria, and my Spanish is not very good – but we decided to go for it. I am so glad we did! Here are my top five reasons to visit Puerto Rico. You don’t need a passport! Puerto Rico is a U.S. Territory, which means the island’s residents are U.S. citizens and you do not need a passport to visit. Most residents speak English and [...]

2017-10-10T06:00:58+00:00October 10, 2017|Travel Destinations|0 Comments

  When traveling on an Alaskan Cruise, one of the most popular seaports is Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. If you’ve booked an Alaskan Sailing, you’ll need to decide if you’d like to spend some time in this port city either before or after your cruise. Recently, we had this decision to make and chose to spend an extra day prior to boarding the Disney Wonder for Alaska. We found Vancouver to be a delightful city with so much to do and see! The city really does offer the best of an urban experience with the great outdoors. With the [...]

Grand Cayman Turtle Centre

2017-08-15T06:00:13+00:00August 15, 2017|Travel Destinations|0 Comments

Grand Cayman is a wonderful vacation destination, both as a port to visit on a cruise and as a place to spend a week. Most people think of Stingray City or Seven Mile Beach when they think of Grand Cayman but there is so much more to see and do! The Grand Cayman Turtle Centre is the island’s largest land based attraction. The emphasis of the park is on research and conservation, not only for the many species of turtles, but also birds, iguanas, and more. The centre was founded as a turtle farm to provide meat to local restaurants [...]
