Five years ago, pretty much no one was thinking of renting a car and driving across the US. Something to do with $4 and 5 a gallon gas prices? Now that things are starting to level out, it might be time to crank up the tunes and take a road trip across the country. Utah's Mighty 5 national parks, maybe? Pacific Coast Highway? If you’re willing to make an excursion out of it, the sky’s the limit. But regardless of how accommodating fuel prices might be today or...

The US is a huge place, really immense - like can spend a lifetime traveling it and still not see it all. Maybe you’re a nature lover and want to see the national parks - I highly recommend Utah's Mighty 5 National Parks by the way. Maybe you’re a city dweller and want to try the best food and attractions. Or maybe you want to travel the coasts and beaches during the summer. If you have three months on your passport, and you want to see as much...

With the Fall rapidly approaching, that sweet California weather is starting to look mighty tempting - actually it is pretty tempting year round - so if you are looking to get a little California sunkissed, it maybe time head out West. However, if you are looking to make your trip/getaway/romantic excursion, a little bit more rememberable, skip the overpriced hotels and check out some of these incredible and unique Airbnbs in California. If you haven't stayed in an Airbnb before, it is wondrous way to not only save money...

Despite the stereotype - which typically casts Americans as the loud, braggadocios, stay-at-home and eat spare ribs while watching reality tv sort, we are an adventurous bunch (that also happen to eat spare ribs). From breaking out and conquering the Western frontier in the days of Lewis and Clark, to journeys to the moon (if you believe in that kind of thing), to late-night divey diners with curly cheese fries; - there is no frontier we won't explore. While it is true that our passport wielding numbers are...

There are a lot of renowned travel destinations within the U.S. Big cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami bring tourists to all different parts of the country; the Pacific Northwest and American Southwest attract nature lovers; and beautiful beaches in several coastal states (not to mention Hawaii!) are always popular draws. But there are also pockets of the country that probably don’t get the attention they deserve from travelers, whether within the U.S. or from abroad. One such area is the state of Virginia. While there...

Miami doesn’t fall short when it comes to parties.

So without further ado, check out this list for the best party places in Miami Beach. Mango’s Tropical Café Mango’s Tropical Café is worth checking out if you want to veer away from the typical clubs populated by the EDM-loving crowds.

While my hostel partying days may be over since I now get raging hangovers I've hit my 30s, I do reminisce on my backpacking days travelling around the USA without a car, praying not to end up in the dead in a gutter. Back then all I needed was a super cheap place on Hostelworld where I could rest my head and meet other 20p-something travellers. It didn't matter what the room looked like - as long as there was an endless flow of booze, fun and unforeseeable consequences,...

New York City, as one of the biggest financial and cultural centers of the world, is full of luxury hotels. These hotels compete for millions of tourists who visit the city annually. However, with the rise of social media, tourists are no longer just checking in to hotels for the accommodations. The hotels should now also have great aesthetics so that they can share pictures of their stay on Instagram and other photo sharing apps. Here are a few of the most instagrammable hotels in New York City: The...

If you’re visiting Vegas for the first time, you’ll doubtless be arriving full of hope, expectation and disposable income. Fast forward seven days and it’s a broken shell of a human being that crawls onto the plane to catch the redeye home. It’s not that you failed to anticipate the potential for finishing with less than you started out with; unless you’re a serious bettor or are seriously deluded, no one plots a course for Nevada with the intention of cleaning out The Bellagio and making off with...
