Experiencing the Beauty and Excitement of Lake Tahoe

Experiencing the Beauty and Excitement of Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe glows a deep, dark blue in the sun, dramatically framed by mountains and forest. Because the lake undergoes a natural process called deep mixing, plant matter that drops to the bottom decays properly in an oxygen rich environment, preventing the nutrients that fuel algae growth. As a result, Lake Tahoe is incredibly clear and beautiful. Located in the nothern Sierra Nevada mountains is the second deepest lake in North America and straddles two states and five different counties. That’s not what makes it exceptional though.

Disney World For Adults – Sorry Kids!

Disney World For Adults – Sorry Kids!

A few years ago, my husband and I (we’re in our mid-20′s) took a trip down to Florida. When visiting a state packed with activities, we had to make a couple choices about what to do with our time in Orlando. He wanted to visit Universal Studios; I was gearing up for Walt Disney World. His argument: Disney should be saved for when – and only when – we eventually have a child.

Little did he know, the ability to enjoy Walt Disney World is not determined by having birthed a child. The sheer number of people who propose or honeymoon at Disney is evidence of that. Although Disney does tout itself as a family-friendly destination, adults can find plenty of places to stay, play, and even romance on their trip to the Magic Kingdom and its surrounding parks.

Toast A Ghost This Halloween – Haunted B&Bs With Nearby Vineyards

Toast A Ghost This Halloween – Haunted B&Bs With Nearby Vineyards

Ghosts are like a fine wine; their boo only gets better with age. The same can be said for the historic homes where they reside. These houses have seen people come and go, while some guests have decided to stay forever. They spend their days and nights walking up and down creaky stairs, crossing rooms in a shadowy veil, and floating objects in mid-air. It’s probably because they have endless time on their translucent hands. You might slam a few doors, too.

On your next getaway to a haunted bed and breakfast, you can raise a toast with your fellow guests before listening to the innkeepers tell bone-chilling stories of past guests who never left.
