In 2016, America’s National Parks will be celebrating their 100th birthday! With this in mind, I wrote a post a month from March through August, highlighting five of the national parks we have been to. As Yellowstone National Park is our country’s first national park, my first post is on YNP!
If you’re willing to pound the pavement from dusk-till-dawn, and do a little planning, it’s possible to cover a lot of ground and see a lot of big city sights in an extended weekend. Here’s our top eight places to check out in San Francisco if you’re short on time.
The Hilton Waikoloa Village Hotel is located just outside of Kona, Hawaii. Although it’s a bit far from the heart of Kona, this hotel has so much to offer that you won’t even know what you’re missing. It is a huge, sprawling property that covers over 60 acres and is complete with multiple restaurants, winding […]
I have always wanted to try indoor skydiving and, prior to a recent trip to Vegas, I found a great deal online so I decided to jump on it!! My number one tip with indoor skydiving is to reserve a time early. It’s very popular and slots sell out several hours in advance.

In a one-block radius of Woodley Park, there’s over twenty yummy restaurants to chose from. Most offer either American or Italian cuisine, but there’s also a handful of authentic ethnic restaurants. Since I was visiting the area, it seemed only natural to eat at places that aren’t available back home.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have a place like the Smithsonian National Zoo all to yourself? It is possible and pretty simple to do. All you have to do is go to the zoo first thing in the morning, in February, when the wind chill makes it feel like it’s 14 degrees […]
The Omni Shoreham is a large hotel in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington, D.C. and it is full of history and elegance. The building itself is incredibly large and full of a wide variety of beautiful decorative details. Filled with ornate moldings, ceiling medallions, crystal chandeliers, and other intricate elements, the attention to classic […]
Over the next seven days, I will be visiting opposite sides of the country, experiencing big differences in weather, and traveling for very different purposes.
