I love Savannah and was thrilled when I found out that one of my business trips was going to be in Savannah for 4 days this year. The best part was that we got to stay in one of the most beautiful and historic (my favorite!) hotels in the charming city at Mansion on Forsyth Park.
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!
We've been to Colorado before to explore Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, but this was our first time exploring Denver. Whenever visiting Colorado, I hear a lot of visitors talk about what they did outside of the city, but not many recommendations on what to do in the city of Denver. With the help of Visit Denver and some local friends, we were able to find some fun things to do while we were there for 36 hours.
Anytime someone mentions Vegas, I instantly think of Bacchanal Buffet and I start rambling about how amazing this buffet is. I’m not a huge buffet person, but this place is special. It’s so good that it makes me want to cry. Yes, I’m pretty sure I mentioned this before, but I cry for good food. When we booked our trip to Vegas, I was overjoyed we were staying at the Paris Hotel because Bacchanal was right across the street!
We've done a good amount of traveling in the US and here's our top 10 favorite photos we've taken from across the country that inspires us to travel more.
I was traveling to Chicago for a weekend and since I’ve been around downtown Chicago numerous times before, I wanted to explore something different. I started researching what was near Chicago and came upon Shipshewana, Indiana; a small Amish town only a couple of hours away and thought it was a perfect place to check out!
I recently made a trip to Amish country Indiana in Shipshewana, but beforehand, I stopped by Cook’s Bison Ranch, which was 30 minutes southeast of the city. I have never seen bison up close before, so thought this was a perfect opportunity to learn more about these animals going through the fields in a tractor wagon.
I’ve always loved Vegas hotels because they put such great detail into the theme hotels and they make everything bigger than life. The Paris hotel is one of those hotels and they immediately give you the feeling that you've walked into France the moment you enter the hotel.
If you’re wondering where to eat in Vegas, I would recommend the Eiffel Tower Restaurant located at the Paris Hotel. You get stunning views of the Bellagio fountain show and top notch service by the friendly wait staff.
One of the iconic buildings you’ll see in Vegas is the replica of France’s Eiffel Tower at the Paris hotel on the Vegas strip. You get to go up the 460-foot tower and get incredible views of the Vegas strip. We were told that you have to do this at least once if you’re in Vegas, so since we were staying at the Paris hotel, we thought why not get the full experience!
Do you know where Bentonville is? I didn't know when I first heard about this city either. This was only my second time in Arkansas on a business trip and I was pretty impressed with all the fancy places Bentonville had to offer!
I recently visited San Antonio to meet up with some old high school friends. This city is full of history and I had no idea! San Antonio has structures that date as far back as the early 1700s and they have a great mixture of modern architecture mixed with the old. There's tons of cute restaurants along the beautiful Riverwalk and everyone is super friendly and went out of their way to help others.
We made a trip to Estes Park, Colorado for Labor Day weekend and had the most amazing time there. We were there for 4 days and made sure we saw every sunrise and sunset. We even stayed up a little later in the night for some stargazing and it was the most incredible view we’ve ever experienced!
If you travel within the US frequently with a companion, getting the Southwest Companion Pass is a must-have. I received the pass in July 2015 and it’s valid through December 2016. I have already saved well over $2,000 and will be saving more in 2016!
This was a super short trip to Greenville, South Carolina, but I had to mention it because it was the most unique downtown area I've ever seen.
