Las Vegas is a great city for a weekend (or long weekend) getaway. You get in, you have fun, you get out. Oftentimes visitors try to pack light when making the trek to the desert, but how do you accomplish that in a city that stays jumping until the wee hours of the morning? You bring your Vegas essentials and minimize the rest. Here is a list of packing essentials for Vegas so that you can accomplish the trip with one bag…and not bust.
Whenever I travel, I try to experience a place like the locals do. Not to mention, I am a sucker for delicious food. So a foodie tour is often a great option for experiencing a city or country as a local and trying out those small spots that may be off the radar. So when I ventured to Turks and Caicos for some R&R, the first thing I researched was foodie tours, and I found the lovely Taste of TCI Food Tours Turks and Caicos.

No one wants to go to a new destination and miss the best—but perhaps little known—attraction of the location. Similarly, no one wants to make an easily avoidable mistake when traveling to a destination that he or she is unfamiliar with. Or to get to a new place, only to learn that the coveted activity they wanted to partake in is sold out or has to be booked in advance. That’s why travelers research and plan before we embark on our trips. But what are the best places to get advice on the must-do activities or the must-see architecture? Here are five top resources for travel advice.
Turks and Caicos is not an inexpensive island. If you want upscale and high-quality accommodations, you will have to pay prices on the higher end of the tourist spectrum. But there is one place that is definitely worth it: The West Bay Club Providenciales on Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos.

In this month’s Teen Travel Chat, our teen correspondent Brooke offers great insights into planning a family staycation.
A staycation is a vacation spent closer to home and is ideal for fun day trips. Oftentimes, when we have the opportunity to travel, staycations are overlooked or seem less appealing to the kids, compared to a trip to some place tropical, warm, and far away from home. However, staycations have great potential to be full of excitement, wonder, and new experiences just like any other vacation. Remember that staycations are an option to consider during spring, winter, and summer breaks. This can save money and still provide the same feeling of delight that is often felt when traveling away from home. Here are some tips and ideas for planning a staycation for families.
