  • It was only six weeks before my spring break, and I wanted to do something interesting during that spring break instead of being home all day. I told my parents that I wanted to go on a missionary trip with a group from my school, and they both decided they would let me go. So as my spring break...

  • My hometown is Memphis, Tennessee and I was born and raised there for almost 17 years. Within those 17 years in the city of Memphis, I have become accustom to the many tourist attractions within this wonderful city.

  • When I first stepped off the Carnival Pride cruise ship that I had been on for the last several days, the stunning beaches and resorts of Ocho Rios surrounded me.

  • So you’re visiting your family in Southern Nevada for a couple weeks this summer, or just road tripping through, and you want to jam pack your trip not with slot machines and overpriced Celine Dion tickets, but with shade, outdoor adventure, and mountain air. Here are some ideas for your trip...

  •   In all honesty, my trip to the Grand Canyon West Rim was chaotic. My family simply planned to leave in the morning, arrive at lunch, spend our day there, and head home before it got dark. That didn’t work out as planned. With the dreadfully long, utterly boring, cringe-worthy car ride, we...

  • The beauty of the mountains surrounding the tiny town of Marble, Colorado is astounding. Sitting on the deck outside our room at Beaver Lake Lodge, I can see one of the many sparkling lakes that dot the aspen covered mountains. I can hear the rumble of a Jeep tour heading towards the Crystal Mill...
