As most of my readers know, we love traveling during the shoulder season. Fewer crowds, cheaper car rentals, and more choices in hotels are just a few reasons why we love visiting famous tourist destinations. This past fall, we visited Yellowstone National Park and stayed at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Cabins.
On my most recent trip to Yellowstone National Park, the family decided to do something different, we wanted to pay for a guided animal watching tour. A few days before the trip, we were browsing Viator and came across a company that would take 1-4 people on an 8-hour animal watching tour for $525. Excited by the fact that we didn’t have to drive, we quickly finalized our plans and opted to take the tour.
Palm Springs is known for its Desert Resorts, Coachella, and Son Bono. Hollywood stars and socialites from Los Angeles travel two hours to soak in the desert sun and splash in hotel pool parties. But what if you wanted to do something different than the same ole Palm Springs Scene? What if you wanted to go on a road trip to visit something so unique and strange you wouldn’t think you were in America anymore. That is where the Salton Sea and Salvation Mountain comes into play.
In New Orleans, we have two seasons: hot and two days of cold. New Orleans weather is one reason why I love going to exciting places like taking Amtrack’s Adirondack train from New York to Montreal. If you are like me and the leaves turn from green to brown in your hometown you need to start planning your fall foliage trip!
The final day of the cruise was an interesting one. After four days full of excursions at Endicott, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan, we finally had some downtime to enjoy the ship on our own. We were a little exhausted from my days full of activities, so this Sunday at Sea was a more relaxing one.
