And I must say, it’s kind of whetting my appetite for a bit more travel. Oh, if only we could all travel and keep working and keep on going with life all at the same time, right?

Things to Do in Las Vegas (Besides Gambling)

Y’all, it’s happened. My very “thrifty” husband has decided that he and I need a getaway. 

OH, THE BLISS! The girls are 22 months old and I have yet to spend a night away from them. I mean, I’m not complaining. I’m just saying – it might just be time!

Things to Do in Las Vegas (Besides Gambling) #vegas #travel #getaway Click To Tweet

So he told me to pick a place. PICK A PLACE. I mean, how on earth can I do that?! So many places! So little time! I was trying to think of a place where people go spontaneously, so of course, Vegas came to mind. But, although my in-laws love the casinos and actually do pretty well at any casino they visit, the hubby and I don’t care much for them. So really – why ELSE would you even GO to Vegas?

For many people the idea of Las Vegas is synonymous with gambling. And it it no surprise, considering the fact that in 2017 alone, Las Vegas Strip casinos generated $6.47 billion in gaming revenue, with the most prominent casinos reporting as much as a  3.9 percent increase in total revenue including rooms, food, beverage and gaming over 2016. It is clear that gambling represents an overwhelmingly large portion of Las Vegas’ total annual revenue.

Eating Like You’re On Vacation – How to Get Your Hands on These Tasty Maine Staples!

If you’re an avid traveler, you know that one of the best things about visiting the same spots over and over again is eating! Grabbing your favorite food, right?! The barbecue you’ll find in the South. The steaks you’ll find in the midwest. The vegan delights you’ll find on the west coast. We all have our favorites!  

But what if you could have your favorites straight from the places that make them famous…at your home, any time you wanted? Let’s take the state of Maine, for instance.

The state of Maine is known for its cuisine full of freshly-caught seafood, hearty potatoes, rich cream and generous portion sizes. If you are desperate to get a taste of Maine, here are three of their famous state dishes that you can get to eating right away:

Lobster Rolls

This Maine staple is beloved by locals and visitors alike — many tourists make it a goal to be found eating lobster rolls anytime they visit the state. The traditional lobster roll recipe is fairly simple because all you need is a white roll and a lobster salad made out of lobster meat, mayonnaise, chopped celery, lemon juice, parsley and seasonings. If you want to make your own lobster roll, you should go to the website Lobster Anywhere to have fresh lobster sent to your front door. They can bring Maine lobster to any state in the country in the span of twenty-four hours, including Alaska and Hawaii. The website is the best way to get fresh lobster delivered to you so that you can have the most delicious and authentic recipe possible on the same day that it arrives. When you’re done putting your classic lobster roll together, remember to serve it with a side of creamy coleslaw or a handful of salty french fries.

Clam Chowder

A traditional New England clam chowder recipe involves golden potatoes, thick bacon, heavy cream and of course, plenty of local clams. It’s always important for your recipe ingredients to be as fresh as you can get them—this is especially true when you are adding seafood to the mix. With the help of Lobster Anywhere, you can also get fresh steamer clams harvested from Harps well, Maine — these soft-shell clams will add a sweet, savory and subtle taste to a hearty chowder you’ll be able to appreciate from the first time you start eating. Remember to wash the clams before you start cooking by soaking them in cold water several times so none of the grit gets into the food.

Why NYC Bus Tours Are Perfect For Families

I’ve been thinking about traveling a LOT recently. Maybe it’s because I just spent almost 4 weeks stuck in my house taking care of sick family members, I’m not sure…but it’s been a while since we traveled anywhere, and I’m starting to get the itch. Of course traveling these days is a horse of a different color for us – now it’s not just the hubby and I off an an adventure. US now includes two VERY active 18-month-olds. I’m not sure what travel looks like for us these days, but one thing I know is, for any kind of a group, I LOVE me some bus tours.

My husband and I did Washington D.C. a couple years ago in four days flat. It was AMAZING, and the only way we were able to do it in that short amount of time was by taking advantage of an awesome bus tour. It brought simplicity to the entire process, and we decided that the next time we tour a city, we would do another bus tour. 

Take New York City, for instance.

Seeing New York is a one of a kind experience that you understandably want to have while being together as a family. Your kids will remember it for years to come, and so will your spouse. It’s like nothing else. But it’s not easy to tour a big city as a family – or is it?

Over 60 million people now visit New York in an average year, and that breaks down to some five million per month, 1.25 million per week, and well over 100,000 per day.

Yes, NYC is crowded and overflowing with tourist – but when you take a bus tour around the city, you beat the crowds and avoid having to fight the traffic (on the street or on the sidewalk.) That’s the first reason to opt for a NYC double decker bus tour for your family vacation, but here are five more to take into account:
