Guide To Camping - 5.0 out of 5 based on 1 vote
I am relatively new to the camping world. However, I did recently take a 2 week long camping trip (there were some hotel stays thrown in there as well) where I learned a lot about camping. One thing that I learned? I learned that I love to camp! If you learn how to do things the correct way, then camping can be a lot of fun. Here are my tips to make a great trip out of camping: Quality camping equipment can go a long way. Yes, quality usually means that it will be more expensive, but if you know that you plan on going camping a lot then it can be well worth it. We knew that we wanted to start camping more and…

Recently, I visited Arapaho National Forest located in the state of Colorado. We spent a few days there and decided to camp one night as well.

Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park - 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 votes
As I mentioned the other day, we are currently on a long road trip. One place that was on our list that we must visit was Rocky Mountain National Park. I have seen pictures of this national park before, and it is one of the top national parks in the United States for a reason. There is a lot of beauty to see here! There are two distinct and very different regions at this national park. The western side of Rocky Mountain National Park consists of many forests and it is more wet. The eastern side of the national park contains valleys and beautiful views. If you can only make it to one side, you will not be disappointed though, both sides are supposed to…

Hanging Lake in Colorado

Hanging Lake in Colorado - 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 votes
I'm currently on a last second road trip. My husband surprised me and decided that we need to be more spontaneous, so he made me pack my bags and we are driving to the West Coast of the United States from our town of St. Louis. You might not know this, but this will be around a 60 to 70 hour round trip on the road, which is a lot of driving! We plan on making a lot of stops along the way so that we can really enjoy how beautiful the United States is. One stop that I really want to make is to visit Hanging Lake Hiking Trail. When I was doing my research the other day of things that we must stop…

Vacations can be expensive, but they don't have to be. It is very possible to have a great vacation on a small or smaller budget. Below are my tips to save money so that you don't break your budget trying to have a fun time. Vacation during the off-season.

Your flights may be cheaper, activities may be cheaper, and your hotel will probably be cheaper as well. However, if you are going to do this, make sure to check the weather and anything else that you may need in order to plan your trip.

Pros and Cons of Using Short-Term Rentals For Your Next Vacation - 5.0 out of 5 based on 4 votes
Short-term vacation rentals are becoming more and more popular every year. Instead of the usual hotel being the number one choice for vacationers, many people are looking into renting a private home or a private room instead. This change is being aided by the fact that more and more short-term vacation rental websites are popping up on the internet (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.), which is making it much easier for future vacationers to plan their trip. I've stayed in a short-term vacation rental a few times now, and it's always been a great stay for us. We've used a short-term vacation rental when we went to Miami, Florida a few years ago, and we also rented a house when we traveled to Gulf Shores, Alabama last…
