Go Heli-Fishing in the Middle of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia

Sep 8, 2014  |   Contributor: Julie Hatfield  |  5 Comments

Have you ever been helicopter fishing? No, it doesn’t mean fishing for helicopters. It means having your own private helicopter with a pilot who is as good a fisherman and mountain guide as he is at piloting. Swooping up over 50,000 square feet of pristine rainforest, when his trained eye spots a river filled with jumping salmon, he will head straight down to land on a tiny piece of terrain at a riverbed noisy with the sound of the sparkling, spawning fish. Once there, you can throw in your line and pull them in to your heart’s content.

If you are a discerning traveler who delights in an elegant stay, romance-inspiring views, and local gastronomy, but seek a place with a casual vibe, you'll fall in love with Santorini. The Santorini of today is moving from courting the daily onslaught of large ship tour groups to fewer travelers who will stay awhile to appreciate her history, monasteries, unique cuisine, local wine, sensual sunsets, languid dining and sumptuous accommodations.

Get Your Girlfriends Together & Spend a Day at The Resort at Pelican Hills' New Spa Suite

Sep 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond  |  1 Comment

Something has changed at The Resort at Pelican Hill. Newport Beach's only five star resort, which sits above the rolling greens of its two internationally-acclaimed golf courses with a panorama of the Pacific Ocean, is now a tough reservation. It's bustling. On a recent stay at the resort, I happily observed the flutter of guests everywhere and throngs of attentive staff as the bellhop noted, "Why, yes, the world is well aware of Pelican Hill now."

Have You Heard About the Bentley Giveaways at the New Virgin Hotel Chicago?

Aug 29, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

I heard that each night, adorable puppies are delivered to your room before bed along with canteens of hot cocoa at the new Virgin Hotel Chicago. It’s also been said that every 1,000th guest receives a new Bentley as personal thank you from Richard Branson himself. It’s true, I heard it with my own ears. Okay, for those of you doubting me, there’s a slight chance that I could be wrong, unless I’m not (then you’ll really look silly).

5 Destinations to Avoid Fall and Follow the Sunshine

Sep 27, 2013  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico  |  4 Comments

There are some that count down the days until autumn, snatching up sweaters and cardigans, scouring Frye’s new line of boots and eagerly awaiting the return of pumpkin spiced lattes (signifying that fall is close behind). They welcome the cooler weather and layered clothing. Others live in sandals, love staying active outdoors and when the weather drops below 60 F, complain about the freezing temperatures. To the former, congrats, your time is now. To the latter looking to continue that never-ending summertime feeling, how about checking out these warm destinations for the changing seasons.

Quintessentially New York: The Quin Hotel and The Wayfarer Restaurant

Aug 12, 2014  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

New York City never aspires to be anything but itself. Unlike Dubai, Shanghai or any newer cosmopolitan cities that grasp at designing parks, centers and buildings that look globally appealing, New York City loves its textured past. In fact, I go to New York City just for its celebrated history even though I admittedly also revel in its modern revampings.

Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa is a Mountain Retreat Where You Can Get Lost in the Pines

Aug 6, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn

After 2.5 hour drive from San Diego to Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa, my wife and I were ready to escape the intensity of the sun and find our way to our suite. Though we had looked up weather for Lake Arrowhead prior to our trip, the fact that the lake and resort are located at such a high altitude must have played a psychological trick on us considering, even after reading the forecasts, neither of us were prepared for the heat.

The Cromwell: Vegas' Newest Boutique Hotel Proving Refined Luxury is Anything but Boring

Aug 4, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Las Vegas is endlessly busy; the constant noise of slot machines buzzing in casinos, young party scenesters hitting pool parties and nightclubs, and travelers joyfully snapping shots of the bright city (with drink in hand) on their smartphones—it is always alive with excitement. While these are some of the reasons people visit, it can also be pretty draining.

The More Laid Back Las Vegas Experience for Travelers of All Ages

Aug 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn  |  1 Comment

As the rare Italian, blueberry-infused beer slid flavorfully to the back of my throat, the cicerone for Public House at The Venetian in Las Vegas described the undeniably unique and especially bold flavors of the aptly named My Blueberry Nightmare. Hints of oak barrel aging and a spicy kick from hot chili confused my taste buds unlike any beverage I've ever experienced before. Imagine expecting a semi-sweet brew only to be confronted with a savory bitter flavor followed up by a punch of heat and a tart blueberry finish. It was nowhere near what I expected, yet I ended up thoroughly enjoying the new combination of tastes, which now stands as a perfect analogy for my entire trip to Las Vegas.

Jul 30, 2014  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial

What do you do when it’s pitch-perfect weather in San Diego? My choice was a bit unconventional, yet warmly rewarding. I headed 90 miles from home into the Anza-Borrego Desert for a stay at its most iconic and best known lodge, La Casa del Zorro.
