The Best Banff, Alberta Canada Area Visitor’s Guide
I believe that the Banff, Alberta area is one of the single most beautiful areas in all of North America, and I am not the only one. There is so much raw beauty stuffed into this one area of the Canadian Rockies that it is almost impossible to appreciate unless you see the area yourself. From its beautiful and majestic mountains and glaciers to its pristine and crystal clear lakes, the Banff area has it all.
The Ultimate Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls Visitor Guide
The Great Lakes region doesn’t get the notoriety for beauty that the American West or the Atlantic and Pacific coastal regions do, but there are some incredibly beautiful areas in the Great Lakes region.
A few of my absolute favorite areas in the Great Lakes region are Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls State Parks in Minnesota. Both state parks are located near the coast of Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, and both state parks are absolutely gorgeous. Even better, they are both in very close proximity to one another, so it is very easy to see them both in one trip.
Great Golf Getaways – Erin Hills Course Review
Erin Hills Golf Course (host of last year’s U.S. Open) is a beautiful, but extremely challenging, course that is a gem deserving of the buzz its receiving in the golf world. Situated 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee, the 7,812-yard, par-72 track lies in the small town of Erin, Wisconsin. The course’s dramatic landscape takes advantage of the natural slops of the land, which makes for exciting but tricky lies and stances. It boasts a course rating of 77.9 and a slope of 145. During the 117th U.S. Open, the course played 7,693 yards. The course was easily among the most challenging courses I have ever played.

The Complete Muir Woods National Monument and San Francisco Guide
I have been to the Redwood State and National Parks in Northern California, and they are beautiful parks. They are also relatively far away from any major metropolitan city. They are located where I would expect large Redwood trees to still be standing, on the north coast of California. I think Muir Woods National Monument is so unique because it is where you wouldn’t expect large, old-growth trees to still be standing.

Be Aware You Won’t be able to Travel without a REAL ID
While the REAL ID Act got a lot of attention when it was first passed back in 2005, it is something that hasn’t been in the news all that much in recent months. However, now that the Department of Homeland Security’s implementation deadline (January 22, 2018) is here, we thought it would be a great time to review the REAL ID Act and let you know how this could impact your travel plans.
