Modern and Impressive Cabin Retreats

Cabin getaways have been popular for decades. With all the hustle and bustle of city life, sometimes the thought of getting away from it all is highly attractive.

Some people, however, love the outdoors but are not that enamored of staying in extremely rustic cabins without any of the amenities that they've grown accustomed to, such as plumbing and electricity.

Modern cabin builders are aware of this and have been anxious to accommodate these types of renters. These days, it's possible to stay in amazing and incredible cabins that look rustic on the outside but are filled with cozy luxuries on the inside. Cabins exist that can house up to 16 people and come with up to 5 or 6 bedrooms and an equal amount of baths. There are cabins for couples and cabins for families and cabins for groups of friends or co-workers. Many are pet friendly. They also come in every style imaginable, from one-level on the ground to lofts to spacious two-levels.

Most of these modern masterpieces feature decks or balconies, from which one can stand and enjoy the majesty of the surroundings. The cabins, while being fully modern and equipped with everything to make city dwellers feel at home, are situated in places where the views of trees and mountains and wildlife are magnificent. These beautiful cabins are truly the best of both worlds.

If these retreats sound appealing, looking at the offerings of places such as Pigeon Forge Cabin Rentals is a great starting point.

3 Must-Visit Tourist Attractions in South San Francisco

Home to the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and the San Francisco Conference Center, South San Francisco is generally viewed as a mere stopover point. But, with affordable South San Francisco flights, several budget-friendly hotels, and surprisingly noteworthy attractions, South San Francisco is now a tourist destination all its own. Here are the three best things to do in South San Francisco, no matter how long you plan to stay there.

Sign Hill is visible before you even land at San Francisco International Airport. From the air, you'll see huge letters along a mountainside welcoming you to "South San Francisco The Industrial City". Made in the 1920s, the sign recognizes South San Francisco's contributions to World Wars I and II. Along with 30 acres of open space and 2 miles of hiking trails, the concrete letters on Sign Hill are completely accessible to the public. Sign Hill also features an electric Christmas tree that is lit from Thanksgiving to after New Year's Eve.

Just across from Sign Hill, active travelers will find San Bruno Mountain State Park. Photography enthusiasts will find stunning views of San Francisco and the Central Bay Area, while avid hikers are sure to enjoy the challenging slopes that climb 1,314 feet to the summit.

Looking for easy access to these natural attractions? Consider staying at the Embassy Suites San Francisco Airport.

This U.S. Army cemetary, built in the 1930's, is strictly used for military veterans. Well-known naval officer Adm. Chester W. Nimitz is laid to rest here, along with a number of distinguished veterans from the Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, and Vietnam. Dedicated to the sacrifice of military heroes, visiting the Golden Gate National Cemetary is an overwhelming and emotional experience.

History and Art Walking Tours

Perhaps one of the best ways to explore South San Francisco's culture is to take a walking tour of historic sites. South San Francisco has 50 designated historic buildings throughout the community, each marked with a plaque describing its significance. Sites include historic homes with authentic Queen Anne architecture and the 1918 Bank of South San Francisco.

If you decide to tour the area's culture, be sure to make room for the Orange Memorial Park Sculpture Garden on your itinerary. Winner of the California Parks and Recreation Society's Award of Excellence, this creative space includes some of the area's best public sculptures. Along a winding walking path, you'll find a pair of "Puzzle People", a metal Yin and Yang, a mother and child sculpture called "Safehaven", and a child-size statue of a boy and his dog. This centrally located park is found near many South San Francisco hotels.

No matter what your travel plans in San Francisco, don't discount the attractions in South San Francisco. Please share your South San Francisco travel tips in the comments section below.

Hotels Near Gates Bar-B-Q

Gates Bar-B-Q is a Kansas City barbecue empire. In 1946, George Gates parted ways with his railroad job and opened Gates' Ol' Kentuck in Kansas City. Today, the barbecue dynasty, managed by his son Ollie, has several popular locations in the city, including downtown, east, midtown (in the Crown Center Area), and southeast.

The Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown and the Fairfield Inn Kansas City Downtown/Union Hill by Marriott make it easy for diners to get to Gates Bar-B-Q's downtown and midtown locations. The discount rates that you'll find at both hotels means that you can go high on the hog over luscious ribs and barbecue beans without breaking your budget.

Hotels Near Danny Edwards Blvd BBQ
You can't miss the big, pink concrete pig at Danny Edwards Blvd BBQ on Southwest Boulevard. A lunchtime favorite among locals and visitors alike, its slogan "eat it and beat it" attests to the crowds who have descended on Danny Edwards over the decades. Those with a hankering for brisket sandwiches, ribs, or pulled pork with a side of chili won't be disappointed here.

For those seeking to grab an early seat for lunch, booking at the Fairfield Inn Kansas City Downtown/Union Hill by Marriott and The Westin Crown Center will take you from hotel lobby to your seat at Danny Edwards in short order (just don't make your food order short, though).

Today, its four city locations boast extensive menus featuring lamb, pork spare ribs, beef ribs, burnt meat ends, and taste-tempting hickory pit beans.

Forget the Weather - Bellevue is All About the Outdoors

This part of the country is pure, unspoiled eye candy with its majestic snow-capped peaks, deep blue waters, and colorful flowers so vibrant that you'll look for the artist's paintbrush. If you love the outdoors, you've found your next vacation spot.

Chose Affordable Luxury for a Home Base
If you plan on doing a lot of outdoor exploring, a hotel that's affordable and convenient is best. Free WiFi is a great perk for those of us who don't want to wait until we get home to upload those amazing shots. The Coast Bellevue Hotel offers this and more. It's a short drive to the Snoqualmie Falls and some of the best wineries in the nation (I hear California grumbling). The lobby's modern decor is inviting, particularly after a long day of hiking.

Other affordable hotels in the area include the Days Inn Bellevue Seattle Hotel and the Silver Cloud Hotel. You can also visit Hipmunk for a larger list of cheap hotels in Bellevue.

Enjoy History and Hiking
If you're a novice hiker like I am, or you don't have much time, you'll enjoy this easy route through the historic coal mining area. The Coal Creek Trail will take you between 1-3 hours to fully experience. It's 2.8 miles long from beginning to end, or 5.6 miles round trip. Pets and families enjoy this trek.

Start from the Red Town parking lot. Hikers will come across a sealed mind shaft. Some say there's still an aroma of coal in the air. Also along this dirt trail is North Fork Falls. If there hasn't been a good rain recently, the falls can be quite small. There are several benches where you can sit and enjoy the soothing sound of water. Continue on and you'll pass blackberry bushes, bridges that cross streams, as well as a few connecting trails if you're looking for more of an all-day adventure.

Indulge in Outdoor Thrills & Soothing Moments
Get your blood pumping on a zip line at the Bellevue Zip Tour, kayaking at Enatai Beach Park, or try a standup paddle board for a new view of the water. If you're an outdoor enthusiast with an interest in art, you'll love the outdoor installations. City Hall offers a free walking map that lists the art sculptures. 

Top off the Day by Dining al Fresco
Bellevue residents and tourists love to dine outdoors. It's so popular that many of the restaurants have created outdoor dining out of very small spaces. Call ahead to make sure you'll get a spot, because everyone here loves a table outdoors.

If you like free-range outdoor dining, remember Saturday mornings (in season) bring the Crossroads Farmer's Market. Food trucks are popular in Bellevue offering cheap, imaginative dishes from curry to pies and a host of others.

Bellevue is a lovely town of arts, shopping, and corporate headquarters, but its real jewel is its surroundings. The beauty of the outdoors and the number of outdoor activities satisfy even the most discerning outdoor enthusiasts. If you've visited Bellevue and have other tips or recommendations, share them in the comments below.

5 Spots with Mother Nature at Her Finest: Croatia

Croatia is a spectacular destination teeming with lush greenery, gorgeous islands scattered about the Adriatic sea, and wonderful displays of natural beauty in every corner. If you are in desperate need to be one with mother nature while in Croatia, then you picked the right spot. These are just five of the amazing natural places you can check out.

Although one of the smaller national parks out of the bunch, National Park Paklenica offers up a handful of fun outdoorsy activities to delve in. Various flora and fauna can be spotted as you hike or bike through any of the 200km of trails and pathways. If you want to get up high, there are plenty of rocks to ascend to get a glimpse from up above. Try your hand at rock climbing, there’s nearly a different climbing spot for everyday of the year, so that should keep you busy for a while. If you want to experience everything this park offers, just camp out on the pebble beaches until dawn breaks.
National Park Krka

With its close proximity to the capital, Zagreb, it would be a crying shame for you to miss out on National Park Plitvice. Only an hour outside the city, this breaktaking UNESCO World Heritage Site will mystify any visitor. A fairy-like fantasy is what this place might be described as with its cascading travertine waterfalls, lush green trees and foliage, and crystal lakes. Take a hike around this wonderland, or see it in style by taking a scenic train ride or an electric boat. With mountains littering the area you bet you can go climbing during the summer months, and during the winter, slice up the snow with skiing.

At National Park Krka, the beautiful scenery continues with more waterfalls, including the super steep drop at Skradinski Buk. The phenomenal Krka River has carved gorges and created spectacular falls, rapids, and lakes making it a fine display of nature. For a few cultural points to check off the list, without leaving nature, there’s 19th century watermills with a mini presentation as well as a monastery. It’s located just up the river when it turns into Lake Visovac. Treat yourself to Luxury Travel with Elegant Resorts because there’s no camping allowed at this park.

The island of Pag is a bit different than the rest of the places just mentioned, I hope you’re ready for the ocean. This is the country’s fifth largest island and there a plethora of things you must try while you’re here. You could enjoy a day mountain climbing or biking through the 115 km of trails, or perhaps you are more of a marine creature person and you would like to dive. Surrounded by karst and rocks, rich vegetation, and a bit of a different look than the typical mediterranean island, this is a fantastic spot to chill for a few days. Don’t forget to have a bite of the ever popular Pag sheep’s milk cheese. If you have had your fill on nature, this is the island to party on. It’s been dubbed the nickname “ Ibiza of Croatia,” to give you an idea of the nightlife scene.

Let’s see mother nature’s creature in their natural habitat. There’s no reason to feel guilty by seeing the dolphins at on the island of Losinj. Just head to Losinj Water Center and see these playful marine critters in the ocean, not an aquarium. Learn more about the Dolphin Reserve and their efforts while you are here, and even adopt a dolphin if you want to!

A day at Bellingrath Gardens and Home with Family

Thanksgiving week is around the corner. Last year we visited the Bellingrath Gardens and Home with  my family and In-laws on thanksgiving week, Alabama. This year we're not going to go on vacation with them because of their health issues.

One thing I like going gardens in South it never been the same through out the year.The flowering plants are spectacular all year round.

About Bellingrath Gardens:

Bellingrath Gardens  was opened to the public  year-round in 1934. The garden has at least 65 acres and you could enjoy full day if you are planning to do so. There are so many things to see and do at the same time and it's a self guided tour. For the reason  we visited in Thanksgiving week last year, the garden were decorated with magic lights though we did not stayed in magic christmas in  lights.

The garden is huge and has:

  • Rose Garden.I love roses and so my mother-in-law. This is my first saw lots of different variety of rose flowers.
  • The Great Lawn Planting.Little travelentz loves the open space where she can run around. 
  • Fountain plaza.
  • The Terraces. It has the picturesque of river and pond.
  • The Grotto.
  • The Rockery. The most photographed area in Bellingrath gardens.
  • Bayou Boarwalk. 1,600 foot ecological boardwalk. I think its pretty neat.
  • Asian American Garden.

About the Home:
We decided to bought the package which included the guided tour in the home.You're not allowed to take photos inside the house which is pretty standard in most of the time. The house has 15 rooms and was built and design by prominent Mobile architect, George B. Rogers.  It encompasses 10,500 square feet.

Do you want to go back?
If I leave in the area I would absolutely buy a membership. All year round is different and I love gardens. It's a great opportunity to relax and enjoy nature.

3 Islands of the Seychelles

The Seychelles are a grouping of idyllic islands off the east of Africa. Still somewhat under the radar, these pristine beauties are scattered away at sea and numbering over a 100. While all boast their own special beauty, here are three to get you started.

If you’re on Mahe, the largest island in the archipelago, then you must visit the highest mountain, the Morne Seychellois. It’s found in Seychellois National Park, which is a thick-forested woodland, full of mangroves and civilization not seen for miles. Get the hiking boots ready and make your climb up to the top.

If you’re the city type, the you have to head to Victoria. Don’t expect too much from the city life considering this is the smallest capital in the world. With that said, you can still find some unique shopping in Victoria and you can take home some pretty stylish new garb along with souvenirs for everyone.

Perhaps shopping is your thing and you don’t want to stop. The markets in Victoria are fantastic to roam around for a few snacks, fruit for the road, or a place to collect some spices to bring home. There's plenty of souvenirs here as well.

This is the country’s second largest island and only a very small plane hop away from Mahe. The beaches here are unforgettable, and are even voted as some of the best in the country. Anse Lazio is the prime choice with its picturesque sands and crystal clear water. Speaking of clear water, snorkeling is a must.

To further explore your Seychelles holidays, the Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to the endemic forest of Coco de Mer along with a few other palms. This special tree grows a huge seed, the largest in the world. There are beautiful wildlife, such as the Seychelles Black Parrot, a rare bird, other reptiles, mammals, and snails.

La Digue
Let’s move from the two largest islands in the country, to one of the smallest. La Digue is a stunning spec of sand of the over 100 islands that make up the Seychelles. Luckily, it’s not half as popular as the beautiful Praslin and Mahe islands. But don’t think you need to give up on beauty to get some exclusivity and peace. The pink granite rocks that spec the coastline, the white sand beaches flanked with palms, and the piercing blue water, make this a haven. The L'Anse Source D’Argent is ranked as one of the best beaches in the world, so that’s this little islands claim to fame, see it while it’s still hot, but not yet mainstream.

The snorkeling top spot is a Ile de Cocos, and the clear water here offers ultimum clarity. To get around, go old fashion and walk or bike. The rare Paradise Flycatchers are located at here deserves a wander over.

7 Fun Things for the Family in Paris

If you’re coming to Paris with the kiddos, it’s safe to say most of the romantic ideals of the ‘City of Love’ are off the table. But that’s OK! It doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, and when you’re with the kids, there’s no other choice. So what type of family are you? A day in the park type? The museum buffs? Check them all out.

We need a fun park…

Let them run wild.

Jardin du Luxembourg 
Let the kids run free at this gorgeous garden behind the enchanting Luxembourg Palace. After paying a minimal fee, the little ones can scurry about a super fun playground while you enjoy the beautiful park. There’s also a fountain pond where the kids can practice some sailing with small boats, or relax a bit and watch a marionette theater, if you’re visiting during the summer.

Jardin d'Acclimatation
Is 49-acres enough space for your kids to wear themselves out at? They will have tons of entertainment here. Besides the amusement park and garden, this fun destination has zoo animals, puppet theaters, a miniature golf course, and carnival games. Try to figure out the tricky house of mirrors as a family and take a few shots at the archery range while you’re at it.

We need entertaining but educational…
Well, then you can enter any of the museums in the city really.

Pompidou Center
Before you even walk in this place, you will find a fine selection of charming cafes to grab a bite at, or you could run into a few street performers. The Stravinsky Fountain is a nice hang out spot as you pregame the kids for wonder around a modern art gallery. No need to fret, there are kid friendly featured areas in addition to the other exhibits. If it’s still not your families cup of tea, heard them to the indoor playground, or cinema, a great idea for a rainy day.

Cite de la Musique
There won’t be a line of tourists at this museum, but it should be acclaimed more. If you have a little musician on your hands, this is where they can see fascinating exhibits on the history of music with a collection of instruments and compositions as they listen to their audio guide.

Shakespeare and Company Bookstore
Got a book worm on your hands? You and your little book-devouring child can read to your hearts content. There are childrens’ readings and it’s a great stop over after you visit Notre Dame

We need a crowd pleaser…
When in doubt. Go here.

How can you go wrong with Disney? 1-day Disneyland Paris tickets would make any family, no matter what age, go bananas. Fun rides to last all day, huge golf course, a resort to relax at after a fun-filled day… It’s a sure win for the whole family.

Who gets to brag about actually being at the Eiffel tower? All the way up in fact! Your kid does. The iconic symbol of the city, and even the country, the Eiffel Tower. It’s totally worth it, the kids will be amazed, and it’s actually something on your list anyway. Just get your ticket ahead of time if you’re around the busier time of year.

Using The Right Parts To Keep A Yacht Going

Every person who owns or services a yacht needs to make sure they have the right yacht replacement parts to service their boats. Every boat is different, and these boats need to be treated with care. The boats can get parts based on the name, make and model of the boat. Also, there are boats that can use special parts based on the waters that they will sail in. The best thing for people to do is order as many parts as they can before the get to work.

The parts for the yacht can be purchased in bulk to make sure that there are enough parts to get the repairs done. Most people need to do their repairs at the last minute, and it is best to have the parts on hand when the repairs need to be done. The best thing for the boat owner to do is to keep the parts on the boat or in the shop. Storing these parts away is going to allow the owner to repair the boat at any time without any trouble.

These boat owners are going to have a chance to keep their vessels in supreme condition at all times.

Nashville Zoo: Ghouls at Grassmere

Halloween was over but this post isn't publish yet and I almost forgot to  write our Ghouls at Grassmere, Nashville Zoo. This year was very cool. They added so many things and I love it, even my husband likes it you can read my story last couple years here.

We arrived in the zoo around 5:30 p.m. and headed back home around 8:30 p.m. We decided to have dinner at the zoo before anything else. Little M was so snappy and keep asking about her candies. I couldn't ask  her to pose so I can photographed her.
Turkey Sandwich for dinner
New stuff that have been added this year:
  • Characters
  • Dinosaur
  • Bonfire
  • Corn pit
I love the Bonfire.I think it was a great idea.

We visited the first day of  Ghouls at Grassmere last October 17, the weather was perfect for everybody and the warmest day we went as far as I remember. This time, I went with my husband and Little M.

First we decided to rode the carousel. It was fun though, they have had light  and sound effects for halloween while you are enjoying the rides.
Little M  played for the first time the corn pit and she enjoyed it.

the spooky hayride...actually it's  kid's friendly ;)

Let the fun begin
Flamboyance of flamingos

Little M was so snappy since we did the trick or treat when we were about to go home.It wasn't a good idea though. All I heard was complain about when she going to get candies.

We all had a great time in Ghouls at Grassmere.
