Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

The Crystal Bridges Museum is one of my favorite museums because 1) it’s FREE, 2) there's so much to explore and 3) it is beautifully designed. I visited the museum last year on my short visit to Bentonville, but didn't get to experience all it had to offer as I was limited on time. This year when I visited Bentonville again, I had the whole Saturday just to explore Crystal Bridges and see the museum in it's entirety, indoors and outdoors.

How I Saved Over $4,500 on Travel with Southwest Airlines

How I Saved Over $4,500 on Travel with Southwest Airlines

Southwest is one one of my favorite airlines here in the US and I saved big over the last year with their Companion Pass. For those that don’t know what a Companion Pass is, it’s a pass that lets you choose one person to fly free with you every time you purchase or redeem points for a flight. So, since I almost always purchase 2 tickets (one for me and one for Ryan), it was a huge money saver!
