Hotel Review, Southwest USA, Travel

On our recent trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon we stayed in some great hotels, but we were most excited to go glamping one night at Clear Sky Resorts (aka the Dome Hotel). This experience exceeded all expectations and I highly recommend a night or two at Clear Sky when visiting the Grand Canyon. Our night here was a highlight of the whole trip and I am so excited to share my full Arizona Clear Sky Resorts review with you

Every once in a while, I get some crazy idea that actually comes to fruition. I mean I always have crazy ideas floating around in my head, but sometimes they actually turn into a fun adventure! Like when I decided we do that New York to Florida drive. And back of course!

Because, why not? Right.

No seriously, this trip was super fun and an awesome adventure! And we saved a ton of money by driving.

The world of ocean cruising is about to be turned upside down – and I am here for it! In October 2021, after MANY months of anticipation, Virgin Voyages, an adults-only cruise line, will be setting sail with its first ship, the Scarlet Lady. But you might be wondering, what is Virgin Voyages and how is this new cruise line different?

All-Inclusive Resort, Mexico

Choosing the perfect resort in Mexico is tough. There are so many beautiful properties to choose from. Last week I had the pleasure of staying at the Hilton Playa del Carmen, an adults only, all-inclusive resort in the best location in Playa. With a fabulous pool, top restaurants, an amazing spa, and incredible service, I truly loved this resort and I think it would make a great choice for your next kid free Mexico vacation. Keep reading, I’m so excited to share my Hilton Playa del Carmen review with you.

Travel, Universal Orlando

Many theme parks offer dining plans, and its often hard to know if it’s worth adding these plans to your vacation package. On my recent visit to Universal Orlando Resort, I was given one day of the full service dining plan to try out and get to know the product. I put the dining plan to the test to help answer the question, is the Universal Dining Plan is worth it?

Hotel Review

Looking for a fun, funky hotel in Dallas? Perhaps for a weekend getaway, girls trip or bachelor/bachelorette party? Then look no further than the new Virgin Hotel Dallas, an amazing property for your next Texas trip. I recently spent two nights at the Virgin and I was super impressed with the entire resort – yes this urban hotel felt more like a resort stay and I cannot wait to visit some of Virgin’s other hotels – Nashville (now open), New Orleans (Opening 2021) and New York City (opening 2022).

A popular feature now available at many resorts is “butler service” meaning you have a dedicated assistant to help you with all your vacation needs. And no one does butler service better than Sandals and Beaches Resorts. Their butlers are professionally trained, and help elevate your vacation to the NEXT LEVEL. But what is butler service and do you need a butler at Sandals or Beaches?
