My Top Winter Travel Destinations

I see winter travel as a great way to break up the monotony of winter. Winter can be a hard time of the year with the bleak skies, cold temperatures, and shorter daylight hours. It helps to have a trip or 2 planed to keep that “summer excitement” feeling all year. I like to mix […]

Mohegan Sun: Vegas Style Casino Fun in New England

  The Mohegan Sun is a massive casino which sits on 240 acres of reservation land on the gorgeous Thames River Uncasville, Connecticut.

Yellowstone National Park: A Photo Tour through the World’s 1st National Park

Yellowstone National Park is regarded as one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Over 3 million people visit the park each year. Because we visited outside of the hectic summer months, we were able to get some amazing photographs! I highly recommend a Yellowstone drive during the spring season to take in […]

Yellowstone National Park: Elk, Bison, and Coyote Spottings!

My boyfriend and I took another drive through Yellowstone National Park this weekend. We decided to take a new route this weekend.
