Sometimes on the weekends places like Lake Louise and Banff become too crowded and extremely busy.  A short trip from Calgary, we found some once in a lifetime activities in the Canmore area that place you in the middle of the majestic Canadian Rockies.  Canmore is about an hour and 15 minutes from Calgary and about 25-30 minutes before Banff, AB.  This quaint town should not be underestimated as it has a lot of shopping, rest...

The beautiful ski town of Whistler is about 1 hour and 30 minutes north of Vancouver.  We were fine with the 40 degree unseasonable weather for December, as we are not avid skiers.  With that said, it is an amazing place even if you do not hit the slopes.  The town had a busy holiday vibe and we got to experience a lot in two days.

Cruising the MSC Seaside, one of our four stops in the Caribbean was beautiful Philipsburg, St. Maarten.  Arriving into port, you will be on the Dutch side of the island, which is known for its shopping,  excursions and casinos.  Knowing we only had about 5 hours to explore and being first timers, we designed an attack plan. Using our time wisely, we tackled the Rainforest Adventures Excursion, Maho Beach, and the shops by the...

I have just simply fallen in love with Mexico. It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve been back from our March vacation and I keep scrolling the photos of the beautiful views, authentic food and pretty beaches we experienced while in Puerto Vallarta. The best part of Mexico is it is a relaxing, easy and inexpensive adventure.  Located in the Mexican state of Jalisco on the Pacific coast, this city packs a big bang for your ge...

I wouldn’t be a true millennial, if I wasn’t blogging.  And there is no place I’ve come to love more, than the City of Toronto.  Toronto is exploding with amazing culture, food, and art.  Through my series of blogs, I hope to help you see the beauty of Toronto and what keeps me coming back.  This post will focus on my latest trip: An Epic Valentine’s Celebration.

When we planned on going to Puerto Rico it was for the sun, stunning beaches and great food.  However, I could not forget that it has been just over a year since hurricane Maria hit the island.  We knew that visiting Puerto Rico would help support the community and we were pleased to see that there was progress and beauty around the island.   Thousands of families lost their homes, blue tarps are still covering some the rubble...

With  beautiful parks, thriving local businesses and unique events, you won’t find a better place to  create new memories than downtown Indianapolis.  I maybe bias as I am originally from Buffalo, NY and it reminds me of my hometown.  To many people, Indianapolis just has some famous professional sports teams,  but there’s so much more to love about this fun and culturally-diverse destination. To help you start planning your n...

A small town feel at the foot of the Kootenay Rocky Mountains, Fernie BC boasts the most amazing landscapes I have ever seen.  Being my first time visiting we found many cute shops,  unique restaurants and a handful of activities. We only had a few days to get as much done as possible before the wedding we were attending.

Driving from Calgary, AB we passed a sign at the border of B.C. that read “Welcome to British Columbia – Th...

With freezing temperatures up north, a long weekend to Miami, Florida is a much needed.  The weather is great all year round, and there’s no season where you can’t enjoy Florida’s southern coast. Whether you’re looking to shop, sip drinks, or take a stroll down Ocean Ave; a quick getaway is just what the doctor ordered. I always want to make the most of my time in paradise, so I put together a long weekend getaway itinerary fo...

I was told that Montreal is one of the best cities in the world. With only 24 hours to experience the city, in the dead of winter, we indeed found some truth to that statement.  During our short time in Montreal we hit up the "touristy spots".  Even though they are deemed touristy, most locals recommended we try these spots to get a real feel for the unique foods and sights of Montreal.  Each place listed was incredible in it'...
