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.
Sometimes, when you can’t actually get away, you still need a little getaway. Luckily, there’s tons of travel related movies that help you escape for an hour or two.

The newest tourist attraction in Las Vegas is The Highroller at the LINQ. It’s incredibly popular and modeled after similar observation wheels like the London Eye. Because it is the newest attraction, The Highroller has a reputation of being a bit of a tourist trap, but that was not our experience at all.
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.

Puerto Vallarta is nestled in between an unexpected quantity of mountains and the waters of Banderas Bay. It is beautiful!
