The Colonial City of Williamsburg, VA – Things to Do & Travel Guide
Williamsburg, Virginia has been one of my favourite destinations for a very long time. I’ve gone there several times as a kid and as an adult for various reasons.

7 Charming Towns on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
Maryland’s Eastern Shore is really charming. It’s also an underrated destination since nearby places like Washington DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis shadow its neighbours across the bay.

Some tips for travelling in Eastern Maryland:

A Louisiana Swamp Tour with Cajun Encounters
There are many companies to choose from, but I went with Cajun Encounters. They are located north of New Orleans, in Slidell. They and several other swamp tour companies offer convenient pick-up from your hotel or a specified location in New Orleans so you don’t have to drive. It usually doubles the price of the tour but it’s still way cheaper than renting a car just for the drive.
When you get there and get on the … Continue reading

My family has driven through St. Augustine several times on our drives down to Orlando. Sadly, my unadventurous parents think that driving through a town is the equivalent of seeing it.

History of St Augustine
St. Augustine has a history much unlike other US cities. Though it belonged to the Native Americans for about 3000 years before, including the Timucua, the history that’s most known about comes … Continue reading

Old San Juan is known for its charming houses and fort, and it used to be a popular destination for vacationers. Other bloggers reported that even after Hurricane Maria, it had revived itself.
