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!

My First Trip to Mexico

I hate to say this, but I really wish I wasn’t writing this blog. Because if I wasn’t writing this blog, that means I’d still be laying on the beach, soaking up the warm sun, drinking a peach daiquiri, and not worrying about anything (literally). Sadly, this isn’t the case as I’m back in Nebraska…writing this blog.

Make Travel a Priority
