Day Cruise in Glacier Bay National Park

A day cruise in Glacier Bay National Park is the most popular and best way for tourists to see this amazing national park. Of course, many cruise ships also ply the route as well. If you do it independently, you’ll have to get from Juneau to a small little outpost called Gustavus; which is the […]

Katmai National Park is one of the best National Parks in the whole US system. What a gorgeous place with varied scenery and activities like fishing, hiking, bear watching, etc. Katmai National Park is a great place to come with friends or family.

Day Trip to Lake Clark National Park

The State of Alaska is home to 8 National Parks, tied with California for the most in the system. The difference is that in Alaska, you can only drive to 3 of them and you basically have to take seaplanes or a boat to the other 5. I came up to Alaska for 8 days […]

What To Do With 2 Days in Kauai

I’ve been to every inhabited Hawaiian island. I have been coming to Hawaii since 2004 and have probably been 10 times total. To me, Hawaii is the ultimate vacation spot for Americans because it feels like you’re in a foreign country but you’re in the 50 states. I just spent 2 days in Kauai; which […]

Staycation at The Plaza Hotel

Growing up outside of New York City and being a frequent visitor as a child, I’ve always known of The Plaza Hotel. Then after seeing Home Alone 2 as a kid, I always knew I wanted to stay there at some point. But having lived in Manhattan for 16 years now, you generally don’t stay […]

The 2015 US Open Experience, with the SPG Amex Card

And yet on at least a few occasions, travel has afforded me the same returns and privileges it has afforded one of the […]

Road Trip Around Washington State

Washington State, not Washington DC, is one of the most beautiful places in America. I have visited Washington State twice before, both times to Seattle and both trips revolved around sporting events-I tend to do that! This time, I planned a road trip around Washington State that would include visits to all three US National […]

Do More Country in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

Have you ever heard of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin? I had heard of it but didn’t actually realize it until I was asked to participate in the #DoMoreCountry summer travel campaign for the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Chippewa Fall, WI where I have been compensated but all opinions are my own. I was excited […]

Road Trip from San Francisco to Sonoma

I was recently out in the San Francisco bay area for a weekend to film a commercial for TripIt in the city. I went out a few days early to hang out with my Godson and best friend and spend a little time in San Francisco-a city that I’ve been to 30+ times but can […]

As most of you who follow me regularly know, I recently did a guys weekend trip to Fort Worth, Texas: the city of cowboys and culture. My buddy Johnny Jet and I did some really cool sports activities like taking an AT&T Stadium Tour, doing a VIP trip to the Duck Commander 500 and attended […]
