Weekend in Miami

Any weekend in Miami is a good weekend as far as I am concerned. Miami is a city I’ve been to countless times. In fact it was the first city outside of the northeast I ever visited when my college roommate and I drove down to Miami for Spring Break 1997. I swore I would […]

Branson is a Golf Destination

I never really pictured myself going to Branson, Missouri. In fact, I knew very little about it and had no idea that the Branson/Lakes Area is a golf destination. I only heard that it was a place for older people with a lot of country music shows. I also met a guy on my Pitcairn Island expedition that was a […]

3 Days in the Outer Banks of North Carolina

Duck, Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Hatteras were all funny names of towns I had heard of for years. I had always heard of the Outer Banks and the beauty of the North Carolina coast but I had never been for myself. I am an east coast guy and will argue the […]

36 Holes in Scottsdale, Arizona

I just got back from Scottsdale, Arizona for the 3rd time this year. As you know, I am a golf fanatic and went to business school in Arizona. So it’s a place that I love going and have some roots there. In fact, I am actually looking at houses out there as well and considering […]

Long Weekend in Scottsdale

A long weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona is the perfect amount of time to get your feet wet for how awesome it is. A lot of people overlook Scottsdale and the Phoenix area in general for other destinations in the Southwest like Las Vegas, Southern California or even Santa Fe. That’s fine with me, as it […]

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 […]

2.5 days in Katmai National Park

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. It’s an easy place to spend a few days although it’s a […]

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 […]
