    Historic St. Augustine

    Historic St. Augustine, Florida has been one of my all-time favorite vacation destinations. There is so much to do, you can’t possibly do it all in one trip. Between the beach, old town, and other historical sites you’ll find plenty of fun for everyone. Located on the east coast of Florida just south of Jacksonville, St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States. Founded in 1565 by Pedro Menendez de Aviles on behalf of Spain, it has been continually occupied since that time, allowing it to claim its status as the oldest city in the nation.  I am a beach gal for sure. Anytime I get to go to…

    New Orleans, Louisiana: Loving the Big Easy

    New Orleans, Louisiana (aka NOLA, aka “The Big Easy”) is a city I love a lot more than I ever thought I would. However, I shouldn’t have been surprised. Uniqueness and mystery cover the city like a cloak, waiting for visitors to discover the surprises within.  My First Trip The first time I went to New Orleans, it was just a stopover for a cruise that was leaving from the Julia Street Cruise Terminal. I didn’t really get to see much of the city itself. I was there for the evening before the cruise was to leave port. Not only was I there for a short time, I was extremely…
