If you love NYC but sometimes want some peace and quiet away from the sirens… go to Roosevelt Island! It costs $2.75 to take the tram from NYC to the island, and then you can ride a bike, take a stroll around the park & enjoy some phenomenal views. Check out details and photos below!
Did you know that the United States has more than fifty national parks? Heck, I didn’t know either until I googled last week. Since I live in the United States, I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t know this, even more embarrassed when I found out through that same google search that I had already visited my first national park some years ago: The Everglades in Florida. I had ignorantly thought that the trip I took to Maine a couple of weeks ago would be my first trip to a national park. At the end, I still feel like Acadia National Park was my first real dose of what our parks have to offer, and I now want to visit all of them before I die. You have to start somewhere, right? Two down, fifty-seven more to go! I hope you enjoy this post about the top 10 things you should do when you visit Acadia National Park in Maine.
What type of hiker are you? At times, I feel like I want to challenge myself and hike hours until I get to my goal. Other times, and this post is about one of them, I just want to get there quickly, take in some views and relax. I wanted to get to Sam’s Point in Minnewaska State Park without killing myself. After a long summer with wedding planning, catching up with friends and getting prepared to move out, I needed something painless. Painless hiking and no pain the following day!
I’m excited about the Super Bowl but the reason has nothing to do with sports. On Sunday, Ecuador will be promoted in a Super Bowl ad. The Ecuadorian government shelled out more than $3 million, and it will be the first time another country has had a Super Bowl commercial in order to generate tourism. The campaign started early last year with new sculptures constructed in the main cities of Ecuador, buses around the world adorned with the slogan “All You Need Is Ecuador,” and the same hashtag sprang up on all social media platforms from Ecuadorian and foreign tourists alike.
