The Great American Road Trip

I’m so very fortunate. For damn near the whole of a month, I’ll be exploring this great country with my wife and two daughters in a sweet 2015 Shoreline Blue Toyota Sienna LTD Premium. It’s an appropriately spacious vehicle for which to traverse a big ol’ land as a family. […]

The Perfect California Redwoods Weekend Family Vacation

Do you have a family travel bucket list? Of course you do! Even if not formally written down, there are places within the U.S. you long to visit. Places you see when you close your eyes and wish upon a star to be…anywhere else. I bet I can name a […]

Serenity Inside and Out at Vdara Las Vegas

I cannot personally vouch for the accommodations at Vdara — although the suites look world class (see below) and the lofts read as a wonderland of vacation bliss — but having spent ample time inside ESPA at Vdara and outside on the open-air patio lounge of Vice Versa, I can […]
