    Is Dollywood worth going to?

    We have had a busy month, my daughter and I. Traveling, work and tons of fun experiences with yummy Eastern Shore seafood and an amazing Tony Robbins UPW experience. It is now time to head back home to Texas. On the road again we went to the Washington DC area for a quick overnight stay before heading to Tennessee. The travel scenery was breathtaking. All the colors of fall were out for their final view of this season. We headed for Pigeon Forge in the hopes of visiting Dollywood. We wanted to know: Is Dollywood worth going to?

    Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

    During our stay at The Island in Fort Walton Beach, the Director of Sales provided us with tickets to the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. Conveniently located in Fort Walton Beach, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is dedicated to educating, entertaining, and inspiring our guests to respect and preserve wildlife by providing unique and memorable experiences for visitors of all ages to connect with marine life. It is a popular attraction for visitors in Fort Walton Beach, Destin and the surrounding areas, and for good reason! I did not feel our trip would be complete without experiencing the outdoor aquarium, so we arrived 54 minutes before opening and secured an excellent…

    Jekyll Island Club Resort

    Jekyll Island in Georgia bills itself as “…a beautiful blend of serenity and discovery,” and they are not wrong. With long beaches and historic ruins, the island is located just a few miles from St. Simons Island, Sea Island and Brunswick. The island boasts multiple lodging options, including the beautiful Jekyll Island Club Resort  where we were fortunate to stay for a few days. It was a long drive from Ocean City, Maryland to the island, but it was well worth the drive. We arrived late at night due to traffic issues, so I didn’t have a chance to really see the property when we got there. What I did…

    Ocean City

    I feel compelled to write a blog about my hometown and my visit there last week with my daughter. As I drove over the route 50 bridge and saw the “Welcome to Ocean City” sign, I felt as if I had never left. We were blessed to be staying with a dear friend and business partner and her husband. They warmly welcomed us to their 5th floor condominium a few feet off the beach–and what a view of the Atlantic Ocean we had! I want to tell you about my happy place first, the beach. I love the sand and the ocean and does my Mini Me. We get up…

    Windsor Court Hotel New Orleans

    My first stop on my tour was the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans. This AAA Four-Diamond, and Forbes Four-Star property is located just steps from the famous French Quarter, and it complements the romance and tradition of the famous historical center. Rich in style and French-inspired decor, the elegant retreat embraces the spirit and hospitality of the Crescent City while remaining loyal to the luxury its patrons demand. When I arrived at the Windsor Court I pulled into a very grand courtyard, and I no longer felt like I was downtown, but rather in the French countryside. The courtyard is beautifully decorated with graceful trees and planters, and a…
