10 Things to Do on Your First Visit to the Grand Canyon

We visited the Grand Canyon for the first time over the summer. As expected, it was incredible.

8 Times it’s Better to Opt for a Vacation Rental

Even when it’s just me and a couple of my kids, I’ve opted for rentals for the convenience and extra space. We’ve stayed in vacation rentals in Orlando, Montreal, Prague and Puerto Rico.
