Sometimes you experience something so amazing that it is worth whatever you had to go through to enjoy it. These top tourist attractions are so special they are worth long lines, expensive fees and headaches. Checkout our favorite tourist destinations in the entire world that are worth standing in lines all day for.

 

Great Wall of China

The sheer size of the wall can’t be experienced through photographs; you must see it in person. Spanning over 13,000 miles, this man-made structure is such a memorable experience. When you see the wall in person you are taken back and in total awe. It’s an inspiring piece of architecture with interesting twists and turns and uneven steps. The wall was built to keep out ravaging hordes of Mongols but now boasts over 10 million visitors yearly. Tourist are everywhere, the lines are long but it’s all worth it. You won’t be disappointed with this destination and you may return one day.

 

Petra

The ancient city of Petra is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and truly a special place. The city dates back to 312 B.C. and is preserved immaculately. Take a donkey ride around the ancient city to see more than you could on two feet. The vibrant colors of the surrounding rocks and the incredible details of the 2,000+-year-old city are remarkable.

 

Blue Lagoon

The Icelandic hot spring has long been a popular tourist destination, but is it worth all the hassles involved? This magical geothermic pool has healing powers because of its high levels of sulfur and silica. Long lines and high entrance fees scare some tourists off but this place is worth the hassle. The one of a kind spa features the incredible milky blue waters and is known to cure people of multiple ailments.

 

Niagara Falls

One of the busiest tourist attractions in America, Niagara Falls is worth your trouble. The majesty of these falls is best-viewed from the Canadian side, where lines are shorter and the vibe is less touristy. Take the Maid of the Mist boat tour for the best views and most memorable experience.

 

Machu Picchu

The ancient Incan citadel high in the Andes Mountains is a pain in the butt to get to but worth all the trouble once you reach it.   Incredible views mixed with some very cool relics, Machu Picchu is a special place that should be experienced.

 

Acropolis

The Acropolis is crazy during the peak summer months but even then it’s well worth any trouble. The views alone from its perch above Athens make this attraction so cool. The massive size of the Acropolis and the stunning remains make it a must visit.

 

Banff National Park

This wonderful example of nature at its most wild is a must see even if it’s near the top of the world. Take in Canada’s oldest National Park and see what the great white North is all about. See glaciers, intricate cave systems and some awesome wildlife.

Touring Nashville!

  

Published

on





Nashville is one of the most underrated cities in America. And you don’t have to be a lover or even a casual fan of country music to enjoy this great city. So if you’re looking for a simple and fun vacation in an American city you’ve probably never been to before, look no further than Nashville. And when you do get there, be sure to check out all these awesome activities!

THE FOOD… EAT THE FOOD

You could absolutely hate music (which is truly insane) and still love Nashville. Why? Because they have some absolutely amazing food there! And who doesn’t love delicious food? They have just about anything and everything too. They’re most famous for their Nashville hot chicken, but if that’s not your culinary bag there’s something for everyone, from tapas to Italian to plenty of great Mexican and Tex-Mex food.

STOP BY JACK WHITE’S RECORDING STUDIO

Jack White, famously of The White Stripes, started his own record company in 2001 called Third Man Records. But it’s so much more than just your average recording studio. They all have a record store and an actual concert venue in the building! So it’s a great place to take in all the great music Nashville has to offer. And don’t you dare think that’s specific to country music. There is so much other great music being played and created in Nashville. It really is the hub of American music.

GET YOUR DRINK ON

Naturally, a city with a great music scene will also have a great drinking scene. And while you should always drink responsibly and safely, Nashville is a great city to drink as much as you can. Obviously, they have countless places making and service top-notch bourbon and whiskey. But there’s also plenty of amazing breweries. Some of the best include Jackalope Brewing Company, Black Abbey, and if beer’s not your thing, swing by Diskin Cider.

CHECK OUT HATCH SHOW PRINT

Hatch Show Print is a Nashville institution. You can’t walk a block in Nashville without catching a few promotional posters that were made at this print shop that’s been in business since 1879. Even in recent years as more digital and advanced techniques have crept up, Hatch Show has stuck by their traditional letterpress technique and the community has loved them for it. Today, visitors can take tours of the factory and pick up a beautiful poster of their own. Because wall art doesn’t get much better than obscure concert promotions!

MAKE YOUR OWN CANDLES AT THE CANDLE BAR

At this point, if you don’t like great music, don’t care much about food, and aren’t a drinker, I guess I just don’t understand you at all. But! There are still other great activities for you to enjoy in Nashville. And making your own scented candles at The Candle Bar is most certainly one of them. Candle making may not sound all that exciting, but just ask anyone that’s ever checked it out and they’ll tell you it’s definitely worth it. Did I mention you get to pick your own scent?!

All-Inclusive Resorts Outside The Caribbean!

  

Published

on





When you think of all-inclusive resorts you automatically think of the Caribbean and Mexico, which makes sense. Most of the all-inclusive resorts are centrally populated in the Caribbean and Mexico, but there are some other regions that offer excellent resort experiences in less than ordinary places.

All-inclusive resorts are great if you want to stay on a budget, be completely pampered and have a low-stress vacation. Why not veer off the beaten path and try one of these less than ordinary resort locations and expand your vacation portfolio.

 

Morocco

When you think of Morocco, you don’t necessarily think of all-inclusive resorts but this area is a hotbed for these luxury resorts.   Check out the incredible deals offered up at resorts in Marrakech and Agadir, some featuring fun activities like water parks. Many of these resorts don’t offer alcohol since they are located in an Islamic country.   You can have plenty of fun without booze, so give the magical country of Morocco a chance.

 

Arizona

Arizona is the destination of dude ranches and wellness retreats, so find your happiness in the desert. Surrounded by sand is the norm for all-inclusive resorts but most of these have an ocean with the sand, not Arizona. The desert makes an incredible backdrop for some of the world’s best dude ranch experiences. Come to Arizona dude ranches to ride horses, hike and enjoy nature while relaxing on a ranch.

Arizona is also famous for its wide variety of wellness resorts that range from spas to yoga retreats. Let your mind and body enjoy a vacation while you spend a week on a wellness retreat.

 

Brazil

Brazil has enough coastline for all the world’s resorts but they keep there’s more spread out. These resorts are very similar to the ones you would find in the Caribbean but these are often more remote. The average guests at these resorts are Brazilian families as it’s harder for foreigners to reach remote locations. Check out the Northeastern region of Bahia for the most spectacular resorts.

 

Tennessee

When you think of luxury all-inclusive resorts, that last place you think of is Tennessee, but this landlocked state has one of the world’s top resorts, the Blackberry Farm. The 4,000-plus acre farm is the ultimate luxurious resort where all the meals are cooked using ingredients from the far and are masterfully prepared by the top shelf chefs. Enjoy horseback riding and hiking in the glorious backwoods of rural Tennessee. Who knew that Tennessee had such class?

 

Texas

Much like Arizona, Texas has plenty of dude ranches and wellness retreats, but they also have some fun ones on the coast. These resorts tend to shy away from the all-you-can-drink party vibes and lend themselves to the tranquil, relaxing vibes instead. You may not find unlimited booze here but you will find peace and quiet, which are often harder to obtain than adult beverages.

 

Explore your world and find where you are happiest, and revisit that place as often as possible. Everyone has his or her own idea of a perfect vacation, just make yours a reality.
