Visiting Seven Magic Mountains

August 9, 2017
Seven Magic Mountains

Our amazing road trip included a visit to Las Vegas!  It is one of my favorite cities after all.   Before the trip I kept seeing pictures of Seven Magic Mountains on social media and I just had to see it!  Neon art in the middle of the desert, by all means yes!!! Seven Magic Mountains is a two-year art exhibition in the desert just outside of Las Vegas.  It is by the Swiss Artist Ugo Rondinone. We drove from…

Buc-ee's Travel Center

I’m not certain what it says about my life that I’m so excited about the travel center that we stopped at in Texas.  But I was excited, I still am excited and I want you to be excited too! My son has traveled to Texas many times with my husband and last year they stopped at Buc-ee’s Travel Center in a different part of Texas.  My son told me that they have about 100 gas pumps and a huge store…

Visiting Duck Commander

August 3, 2017
Visiting Duck Commander

Our very first stop on our cross-country road trip was in Monroe, Louisiana to visit Duck Commander! This has been on my bucket list ever since I started watching the show years ago! I absolutely love Duck Dynasty and I have watched every single episode! Duck Commander is so easy to get to so even if you are on the interstate really trying to get from point A to point B on your road trip you can still work this…

Visiting the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona

July 28, 2017
Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona

Sedona is such a wonderful place to visit.  The drive to Sedona is amazing in itself.  For this road trip we drove from Prescott on the very scenic Hwy North 89A.  We stopped in Sedona for a wonderful lunch at Tamaliza Cafe.  I would highly suggest this restaurant! When you arrive at the Chapel of the Holy Cross you will see a small parking lot at the bottom and a lot of people assume you need to find parking there.…

Visiting the Four Corners Monument

July 27, 2017
Four Corners Monument

Our summer road trip across America took us to the Four Corners Monument.  I have always been curious about the monument and I have traveled near it but have never been prior to this trip.  I wanted to make sure to incorporate this into our road trip this year. Earlier that morning we left Flagstaff, Arizona and went to the East Entrance of the Grand Canyon (also known as Desert View).  That was a beautiful drive from Flagstaff to the…

High Roller Observation Wheel - Las Vegas

On our recent trip to Las Vegas we decided to finally take a spin – literally – on the High Roller Observation Wheel! We have wanted to do this on our last few trips to Las Vegas but there is never enough time to fit everything in! The High Roller is located mid-strip near the Flamingo and the LINQ Hotel.  We were staying at Mandalay Bay so we took a taxi over to beat the heat.  We did this just…

The Birmingham Zoo

The Birmingham Zoo

We visited the Birmingham Zoo on our recent day trip to Birmingham.  It certainly was not on my list since I’m not a huge fan of going to the zoo but we had free time and we were already in the area.  We visited the Botanical Gardens right across the road before the zoo.  I would have said no to the zoo if it had cost any more than it did.  I checked the prices and I was pleasantly surprised…

The Redmont Hotel

The Redmont Hotel

I like nice hotels.  I just do.  I always have and I surely don’t plan on changing my ways anytime soon.  I sure did find a good one when I found The Redmont in Birmingham, Alabama.  The Redmond is a Hilton Curio Collection Hotel.  It is conveniently located in downtown Birmingham on Fifth Avenue North. My daughter and I traveled to Birmingham to see Alton Brown Live and decided that we would rather stay the night than to travel back to…
