Is Laughlin, Nevada in you vacation sights for 2017



  • Laughlin

Laughlin is one of those destinations you can choose to stop over on your way out to Las Vegas, or a destination in itself. This popular vacation destination is bordered by the mighty Colorado River and offers water sports, desert activities and of course gambling in its eleven casinos.

If vacationing in Laughlin, you have the opportunity to check out Lake Mohave, which is a result of the Davis Dam above Laughlin. This is a very popular destination, especially during the hot summer weather, for boating and swimming in its cooler waters. You can easily make a day of it, just for the beaches, and of course restaurants. The Colorado River offers some excellent swimming and tubing, along with fishing, boating and even water skiing.

A fun “on the water” activity is taking a river or dinner cruise on one of the paddle wheel boats or yachts that will pick you up at your hotel.  This is one of the best opportunities for a photo with the famous London Bridge in the background.

  • Yellow cabs in New York

Many people look at New York City as a very expensive destination for a vacation, for good reason. The fact is you want to stay in a suite in Trump Tower; it can eat up most annual salaries. But you don’t have to stay in the Ritz, eat at a table next to a Congressman and his family, or rent a limo driver for the week.

One of the most expensive “budget busters” for most vacationers to NYC, is renting a car at the airport. Why do they do that one might ask? It’s a mindset, a bad one, because one thing the Big Apple does well is transportation for its inhabitants. From inflated rental car prices, cost of rental insurance, to parking, gas and you better believe, parking tickets it’s a bad idea. Plus you won’t find hotels in the city that don’t charge massive fees to park in parking lots.

Instead, take a cab, shuttle, and if you get the best deal on your hotel, a “free” hotel shuttle rides to and from that hotel.

Tip: NYC is expensive to live in, so keep that in mind when tipping that cab or shuttle driver, who doesn’t make enough to live on driving, and needs those tips.

The subway system is your friend; so don’t be afraid to use it. With both hard copy maps of the train routes, as well as on-line and downloadable, you won’t get lost. And, for those traveling with youngsters, it’s not only cheaper but also a great experience for them.

Vacationing in San Diego is a dream come true for all first time visitors to this sun city, and the adventures are virtually endless. If you have planned your vacation well, you will enjoy the local beaches, Seaport Village, Coronado Island and downtown San Diego and its Gaslamp Quarter. This can easily take up your first few days, but please keep in mind, there’s a lot more to see and do within an hour or two by car that you should take advantage of.

The LaJolla and Carlsbad area are just up the coast about a half an hour and offer families the adventure of LEGOLAND in Carlsbad. Spend a few hours there, letting the kids enjoy rides, run around and build things, and then you can get to explore somewhere nearby. Strolling the streets of Del Mar, the quaint little beach town is fun, maybe lunch and a pub brew or two.

LaJolla has some of the best beaches on the California coast, especially for younger children. There’s the LaJolla Cove, where the protected area is home to many reefs, and underwater life. If you didn’t bring your own snorkels and fins, rent some for some fun and adventure. If you really want to give your youngsters, or yourself an experience, this is a great place for a surfing lesson.
