How to Save on Your Honeymoon

As if wedding planning isn’t stressful enough, your honeymoon can make you just as worrisome. Whether your concerns are with the destination, money, time of year, or all of the above, we have listed tips on how to book your dream honeymoon while avoiding your worries.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Fun!

Adults and children alike have something to be excited about this summer – roller coasters and water slides! Growing up near St. Louis, summer wasn’t summer without a trip to Six Flags. Even though my fear of heights seems to get worse as I get older, I’m still the first to suggest a trip to an amusement park or a waterpark when summer is on the horizon.

St. Charles Charm

AurTravel is hosting a Guided Getaway to the historic St. Charles, Missouri from Friday, August 14, thru Sunday, August 16, 2015. St. Charles is a quaint town located just west of St. Louis, though, for as close as you are to the city, you will not feel the ‘big city’ pace. This town serves as a great historical landmark: the Lewis and Clark Rendezvous, Boone’s Lick Trail, and Missouri’s first State Capitol. It is also known for its Main Street shopping, local cuisine, and short distance to Missouri’s wine country. Intrigued by St. Charles charm? AurTravel has listed the Guided Getaway information below:

What’s Your Luxury?

According to Oxford Dictionaries, luxury is defined as “the state of great comfort and extravagant living”. When it comes to traveling, there are many levels of luxury; it all depends on the person. A travel luxury, to me, is having fresh fruit and a cinnamon roll available at breakfast, a rain shower-head, and a cabana on the beach with a strawberry daiquiri waiting for me. That would be perfect. Everyone’s luxury is different, so what’s yours? Not sure? Let me give you a few examples…

Memorial Day Weekend Lake Trips

Kick off your summer with a memorable Memorial Day Weekend by relaxing lake-side with burgers on the grill and a cold brew in your hand. If you don’t happen to live near a lake, don’t stress. There are many lake destinations nearby (some closer than others) that offer miles and miles of water just waiting to be boated, skied, and tubed on.

Eating Healthy on the Road

When you hit the road, it’s difficult to hit the gym. It’s even more difficult to stick to your healthy diet when all you see from the highway are fast-food signs. I’m not going to lie, 7 out of 10 times, a big juicy cheeseburger and crinkle fries sound a lot more appetizing than a cold deli sandwich that was made 8 hours ago and shoved into the watered-down cooler. With that being said, there are many easy ways to continue your healthy diet, even when you are miles from home!

No Passport? No Problem!

Are you wanting to take a trip so soon that you don’t even have time to get a passport? Or perhaps, you don’t want to get a passport at all? Have no fear! There are some destinations where you can travel off of the mainland and onto paradise.

When You Can’t Travel, Staycation!

If I haven’t made this clear in the past, I love to travel. Whether it’s a week-long vacation or a weekend trip, I look forward to getting away from the usual everyday routine. Sometimes, however, it isn’t always easy to get away. If time is short, money is sparse, or there is some other reason […]

Let’s Eat!

Are you a foodie or a wine connoisseur? Destinations all across the United States, both big cities and small towns, have festivals dedicated to several types of foods and beverages. If you don’t particularly enjoy festivals in general, these ones will change your mind. EVERYONE enjoys being in good company, great entertainment, and even better food!

Easy Ways to Save for Vacation

Most individuals and families don’t have the luxury of affording a vacation at the drop of a hat. It takes time and planning to ensure the funds are available when the time comes. Saving doesn’t have to be a daunting process.
