Shelby American Las Vegas - Experiencing the Legend

"I'm not an engineer or a designer but I think I know what people like." - Carroll Shelby

I'm so inspired by the humility of a man who grew to be one of the biggest idols in car history. Prior to visiting the Shelby Heritage Center, I thought I knew who Carroll Shelby was. I thought I knew all about his story, and his empire. But now I see my knowledge was only scratching the surface of this amazing man, and his incredible story.

Wet And Wild At Schlitterbahn Waterparks

It hasn't been voted the "World's Best Waterpark" for 19 years for nothing; Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort is a fun, imaginative, aquatic entertainment center. Since its opening in 1979, the 70-acre resort in New Braunfels, Texas -– both an amusement park and a hotel with 238 rooms -– has been one of the top-attended amusement parks in the country. The name is German for 'slippery highway' -- a good description of what it offers.

Making the Most of 36 Hours in Panama City

Almost everyone these days seems to be writing about Panama City as a hip new travel destination in Central America. There’s good reason -- it’s within a seven hour flight from both coasts of the U.S. and Copa Airlines has aggressively expanded to market itself, and Panama City (its hub), as a natural stopover point on U.S. flights to South America. This means that fares can be had for as little as $350 roundtrip from LA, New York, or San Francisco.

A Culinary Revolution in Colonial Virginia

There was a time not long ago when a family visit to Colonial Williamsburg meant living a, shall we say…  dated lifestyle.  Many parents, especially those with tweens and teens who bore easily, pushed off a visit to Virginia’s Historic Triangle until their empty nester years.

That’s no longer necessary. Thanks to the surge in gastronomic tourism (71% of travelers surveyed in 2015 said their trips had a moderate or high food focus), many historic destinations are appealing to forward-looking visitors by upping their foodie game.
