Las Vegas

April 28th, 2013

Las Vegas, Nevada, is a fantasyland for anyone who wants to make their dreams come true.

Rising up from the desert over a century ago, the city of lights and action hosts famous shows, world-class golf and spa resorts, Zagat rated cuisine, 5-star hotels, and of course the thrill of the casinos.

Las Vegas is also known for the many drive through wedding chapels, and about 122,000 marriages are preformed there every year. Be sure to catch all the action after dark when the sides of many buildings light up to perform a dance of colors; some even have music set to them.

Watch a volcano erupt outside the Mirage, experience the water symphony of the Fountain Show at the Bellagio, or be serenaded through a gondola ride at the Venetian (be sure to look up at the intricately painted ceiling). Don’t forget to take a ride up to the Eiffel Tower observation deck where a panorama of the city unfolds itself for miles.

If you plan on spending most of your vacation shopping make sure you visit the Forum Shops next to Caesars Palace. Here you can window shop over 160 boutiques and experience fine dining all in one place. When night falls make sure to visit at least one of the six clubs located inside Caesars Palace. Clubs range from sophisticated jazz lounges to lively outdoor clubs.

Established as the city of San Francisco in 1847, the California Gold Rush in 1848 transformed the city into the largest city on the West Coast at the time. Today, this multi-layered city carries a mix of all kinds of people and cultures, and the neighborhoods display the same diversity. In the Financial District where Union Square is located, you’ll find the main shopping area and hotel district in very close proximity. At Fisherman’s Wharf, be sure to try some of the famous clam chowder and Dungeness crab at this ever thriving fishing industry. In the same area, you’ll hit upon Russian Hill, where the well known, crooked and striking Lombard Street is found, as well as North Beach, the city’s mini-Italy. Telegraph Hill, also nearby, is the area you’ll find Coit Tower. The Tenderloin is infamous for most of the crime and poverty found in San Francisco. Be sure to observe the gorgeous murals found in the Mission District, and come see the Castro to appreciate the center of gay life in the community.

The city of San Francisco is a well known lure for counterculture in the United States, mainly due to the many mass movements that have occurred there, giving it the reputation of being the liberal center of the States. In the 1950’s and 60’s, the San Francisco Renaissance was encouraged by the Beat Generation writers, and soon hippies gathered to Haight-Ashbury resulting in the famous Summer of Love and the Gay Rights Movement. The writers and artists who came to the area established the modern coffee house culture, and the social upheaval of the 60’s led San Francisco to become the center of liberal activism.

The mix of cultures and communities in this melting pot of an area has led to the emergence of a thriving artistic and active community, where acceptance and respect are major attitudes that most members value. Another positive feature of this city is the fact that the weather is good all year long. The winters are mild and so there’s really no time of the year that is unsuitable for a trip.

Featured Hotel: Edinburgh Tune

April 2nd, 2013

Edinburgh is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, draped across a series of rocky hills overlooking the sea. It’s a town intimately entwined with its landscape, with buildings and monuments perched atop crags and overshadowed by cliffs - in the words of Robert Louis Stevenson, ‘a dream in masonry and living rock’. From the Old Town’s picturesque jumble of medieval tenements piled high along the Royal Mile, its turreted skyline strung between the black, bull-nosed Castle Rock and the russet palisade of Salisbury Crags, to the New Town’s neat grid of neoclassical respectability, all columns and capitals, porticoes and pediments, the city offers a constantly changing perspective. And it’s all small enough to explore easily on foot.

Edinburgh Tune Hotel

One of our favorite hotels in Edinburgh is the Tune Hotel Haymarket, which is directly across the road from the entrance to Haymarket Rail Station and centrally located to all the main attractions in the city. Tune Hotel Haymarket is just a mere 15 minutes’ walk to Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street which is the main shopping street in Edinburgh. Other attractions include Edinburgh International Conference Centre (only 7 minutes’ walk away), Murrayfield Stadium and Edinburgh Zoo is just a short 8 minutes’ drive away.
