A Dog Friendly Romantic Getaway at the Park Hyatt Aviara

The words "pet friendly" seems to mean a lot of different things to different people in the resort industry. At the Park Hyatt Aviara is that they mean that dogs are welcome guests - like any other part of your family. This is our second time visiting and on both times all three of us were received warmly and with a sense that they were genuinely happy to see Heather, Niki and I walking through the lobby. This is a special feeling since it can be difficult to spend time together away from home without worrying about someone taking care of her.

Golf, Seafood, and Beachfront Bonfires at Semiahmoo Resort

Located directly south of the Canadian border, less than an hour from Vancouver is one of the most beautiful resorts that I've stayed at recently. It has that classic charm and natural beauty that money simply can't replicate and would almost distract from. Sitting at the end of a spit of land overlooking the water on three sides is a 212-room resort with a beautiful stone-lined beach and fantastic restaurants featuring imaginative menus filled with local seafood and northwestern delicacies and just minutes away are two of the top golf courses in Washington State!

Cruising With Holland America Line's Maasdam to Canada

For the past few years I've watched Holland America ships sit in port here in San Diego but I've never actually pulled the trigger and cruised with them till last month when they invited us to sail with them. While the experience is dramatically different from warm-weather cruising in the Caribbean and Mexico, I found a lot of stuff to like about cruising on the Holland America Line Maasdam.

Playing Cowboy and Pioneer Lady at Adobe Grand Villas

Last month we took an amazing journey across the country and before heading home needed a retreat where Heather and I could relax, have fun, and explore Sedona. Sedona Arizona is an interesting place that's a mix of luxury, artist colony, free thinkers, metaphysical arts and people just seeking a weekend escape from life. When Heather found Adobe Grand Villas I was hooked. It's everything that I love in a romantic weekend getaway - privacy, unique and fun.

Stunning Caribbean Islands You Should Visit This Year

For many people, the Caribbean is an exotic land that is as a place for only the rich and famous. But it doesn't have to be that way and today there are many affordable ways to explore this beautiful part of the world, it's exotic islands and amazing food and friendly people. For me personally, cruising is one of my favorite ways to do this since I get a "sampler" of different islands so I know where I want to come back to in the future. Ironically, I started this way but now I really enjoy the experience of cruising itself since I never get bored and get to see somewhere new each and every day!
