  • Alila Marea Resort Features One Of The Best Beach Views In North County San Diego

    Most of the resorts in North County San Diego sit atop bluffs with the beach hard to access and often with obstructed views to boot. While Alila Marea also sits atop a bluff, it has the unique benefit of facing the miles-long South Carlsbad State Beach as well as sitting directly above the Grandview Surf Beach. This makes it one of the best located - truly beach-front resorts in San Diego and offers guests unobstructed views and relaxing sounds of waves crashing on the shore at night.

  • Unique Home Rentals For A Couples Seeking A Themed Romantic Getaway

    While themed hotels rooms are a great way for couples to escape the ordinary and have a romantic retreat, there are also some great options out there for booking an entire home that features a unique theme. Not only do these properties have fun themes ranging from a medieval castle to a Balinese escape but they are also more private than a themed hotel room at a hotel. Additionally, they are more immersive since the experience begins the moment your pull up to the property, instead of just once you step through the door.

  • Scenes From Our Mexican Riviera Cruise On Majestic Princess

    Princess Cruises hasn't been at the top of our list of cruise lines to feature here but I think that's about to change. We tried a Princess Cruise last month from Los Angeles to explore the Mexican Riviera - Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, and Mazatlan, and we had a great time. From celebrating National Margarita Day with a margarita crawl through the ship to late night trips to the Chopsticks Noodle Bar and even some time spent placing wagers via their mobile sports book, there were some cool experiences that we haven't had on other ships before.

    If the image that comes into your mind when I mention the word "hostel" is some sweaty and cramped communal living arrangement then what I'm about to share with you will change your mind forever. While there is certainly a wide variety of properties that refer to themselves as hostels, the industry has changed quite a bit since I first considered them as a starving college kid many years ago. Let's take a look at some unique properties run by Hosteling International USA that will surprise you.

  • We Took A Southwest Florida Everglades Road Trip In A Toyota Sienna

    Minivans aren't sexy or cool... right? Well not exactly. While minivans of your youth were more focused on utility than comfort, technology and design, today's current generation of minivans - especially the 2022 Toyota Sienna are a different breed. While utility is still paramount, minivans are truly my top choice of vehicle for long road trips where you'll be riding only on paved roads. Just because the roads are paved though doesn't mean you can't have a great adventure though and that's what we did while exploring Southwest Florida Everglades with a Toyota Sienna.

  • We're Celebrating National Plan A Vacation Day

  • Lani Kai Island Resorts on Fort Myers Beach Is The Perfect Florida Beach Resort

    Las fall I spend five weeks traveling around south Florida and I stayed in a wide spectrum of properties from exclusive luxury beach resorts to contemporary business hotels but I didn't expect Lani Kai Island Resort to be my favorite spot. While anyone can build a fancy resort with the toppest of top tier amenities, it takes something special to develop a beach resort that captures the soul of the community and entices visitors to return - generation after generation.

  • Tropicana Resort Is The Perfect Spot For A Vegas Guys Getaway On A Budget

    There are loads of hotels in Las Vegas and many of those are located along the famous Las Vegas Strip. I've had an opportunity to visit most of the flashiest ones over the past several years (and I've even stayed in some of the worst) but for some reason Tropicana escaped me. This is remarkable when you consider that it is located in the perfect spot - close to the airport and the new Allegiant Field as well as walking distance to events across the street at MGM Grand like MMA Fights, Boxing, and concerts and other entertainment events.

  • Five Cities in the Dallas Metroplex to Visit on a Guys Weekend Staycation

    Dallas is more than "just a city" it is a unique geo-political destination that like Los Angeles would be better thought of as a collection of smaller cities surrounding a central point. That might be a weird way to look at it but while I once looked at "Dallas" as a place to go for a guys getaway, I've started to think of the destination in terms of cities like Fort Worth, Irving, McKinney, Allen, and Lewisville instead. Not only would any of these destinations make for a great excuse to get a taste of Dallas... but even folks who live in the metroplex can easily travel to someplace new for a sort of guys getaway staycation experience.
