Sunsets on the beach. That phrase alone can conjure up powerful, peaceful images. A beautiful sunset, in a beautiful location, can make a bad day good, or a good day even better. Cape Cod has no shortage of beautiful places to catch a sunset. I have been privileged to live here my entire life and have seen thousands of sunsets from hundreds of locations. Choosing a personal favorite would be an impossible task as I have many. However, for any new visitor to the Cape I can recommend the place to catch your first sunset. That place is Rock Harbor in Orleans.

Get Away For Some Sweet Maple Sugar Madness At New England Inns

Get Away For Some Sweet Maple Sugar Madness At New England Inns

Whether or not the old adage “In like a lion, out like a lamb” remains true, one thing can be counted on, March brings the beginning of Maple Sugaring season in New England. In 2013, the Northeastern United States produced 2.7 million gallons of maple syrup – Vermont alone was responsible for nearly half of that amount.

Considering those incredible numbers, and all the sugar houses offering demonstrations, tastings, and activities for children, New England makes a great escape during the spring months. The Maple Syrup region in the Northeast is like the kid-friendly version of Napa Valley.

A Drive to Cape Point Is A Must Do Activity In Cape Town

Sheer cliffs and rugged rocks towering 200 m above sea level and slashing deep into the agitated ocean provide an astounding background for the bio-diversity of the park. Cape Point is positioned on the south side of Table Mountain National Park and it’s the second visit to the area.

How To Plan A Budget Honeymoon in Italy

A honeymoon in Italy has it all: culturally rich cities, ancient treasures, contemporary art, cozy wine bars and panoramic vistas that create romantic backdrops. It’s one of the world’s premiere honeymoon destinations for good reason: Italy has everything you’ll ever want for the perfect getaway with the person you love most.

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.

There’s No Place Like Maine For A Summer Getaway – Sunshine, Beaches, Boating and Lobster

There’s No Place Like Maine For A Summer Getaway – Sunshine, Beaches, Boating and Lobster

Throwing caution to the wind we decided to try to escape to the coast of Maine during the busiest week of the summer season. Summer doesn’t officially begin in New England until July 4th, and this year a heat wave only heightened everyone’s desire to getaway. Finding a last minute room anywhere in Maine during the July 4th weekend was unlikely, but after scanning a few bed and breakfast sites, we were lucky to grab a room at the Dockside Guest Quarters in York Maine. This is truly one of the most picturesque and quiet settings in the York Harbor/ Ogunquit area. The inn is located on Harris Island and affords their quests beautiful waterfront views.

We were looking for peace and quiet and busy hotels and 4th of July crowds were not for us during this weekend getaway. We arrived while the inn was setting up for afternoon tea which offered quite a delicious spread, and the view was breathtaking.
