Attraction of the Week: Hollywood Star Cars Museum

If you have ever visited or driven through Gatlinburg, you more than likely have noticed that almost the entirety of the town is loaded with cheesy & gimmicky attractions. If there ever was a tourist trap, it’s definitely Gatlinburg. While majority of the attractions are a bit on the tacky side, as well as overpriced […]

Attraction of the Week: The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery

The Smithsonian Portrait Gallery is an unexpected D.C. gem, not as highly touted as the more popular museums, however, just as fascinating and worthy of your time. Like all the other Smithsonian museums in the National Mall, admission to the Portrait Gallery is free! It’s a nice refreshing change of pace planning a vacation where […]

Attraction: Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is one of the premier attractions in Washington, D.C. The National Mall sees over 25 million visitors a year – more than Yellowstone, Yosemite, & the Grand Canyon combined. A wonderful combination of museums, monuments, memorials, and cultural attractions, all jam packed within a 2 mile span, makes […]

Attraction of the Week: Smithsonian National Zoo

Across the US, you will only find a limited number of free zoos. One of these happens to be the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C. As this zoo is one in only 4 US zoos home to pandas, there is a great incentive to make room for the zoo during your D.C. visit. If […]

Attraction of the Week: Paris Mountain State Park

The Upstate, South Carolina region offers no shortage of natural attractions. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, the area has long been a haven for hikers and outdoor adventurous types. Greenville, located in the heart of the Upstate, is a popular base for exploring the great outdoors. Now a bustling city with […]

Attraction of the Week: Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta

Who could forget the iconic (and tragic) 1996 Olympic Games? 1996 marked the 100 year anniversary of the first Olympics held in Athens, Greece. It’s hard to believe that events which are widely popular today like Beach Volleyball officially became an Olympic sport this year! Or, that Michael Phelps was not yet a household name. […]

Attraction of the Week: Tom’s Creek Falls in the Pisgah National Forest

Tom’s Creek Falls is a spectacular 60 foot, 2 tiered waterfall in the beautiful Pisgah National Forest. North Carolina offers no shortage of stunning waterfalls. The Western North Carolina region alone is home to 100’s of jaw dropping waterfalls, with Translyvania County being home to over 250. Tom’s Creek is accessed via a short trail […]

Attraction of the Week: The National Gingerbread Competition at the Omni Park Grove

At one point or another, we have all probably attempted to create the perfect gingerbread house only to end up with a crumpled disaster. Unfortunately, the image of the perfect looking gingerbread house featured on those kits is far from reality, with it being near impossible to recreate. Fortunately, you can view amazing gingerbread creations […]

Attraction of the Week: Winterfest at Carowinds

Carowinds is a large amusement park located on the border of North and South Carolina. The park opened in March of 1973 as the idea of Charlotte businessman Earl Hall, who dreamed of bringing the 2 Carolinas together via an amusement park after an inspiring trip to Disneyland in 1956. The park is very popular […]

Attraction of the Week: Reunion Tower in Dallas

Dallas is most well-known for being home to “America’s Team” The Cowboys, amazing employment opportunities, and Dealey Plaza: site of the JFK assassination. One other thing comes automatically to mind and that is endless suburbia. While the city frequently ranks amongst the country’s most boring due to the seemingly never ending suburban sprawl, there is […]
