The Blue Lagoon in Iceland is a tourist destination that has been growing in popularity each and every year. People flock from all over the world to visit this incredible geothermal spa. Located amongst a lava field these incredible mineral-rich waters that are so deep blue have to be seen to be believed. Now the Blue Lagoon is about to get even better thanks to a luxury hotel that is planning on opening directly next to the awesome warm bathing waters.

 

 

The Moss Hotel has 62 rooms, a delectable restaurant, appropriately named the Moss Restaurant, and a spa named Lava Cove. The goal of this town is to combine nature with luxury and hospitality. Not only is this place incredibly luxurious, and beautifully scenic, but it is environmentally responsible as well.

So you can feel good about your stay and you can feel good at your stay as well when you take advantage of some awesome spa treatments.

 

 

This hotel looks seriously sick and it is so decadent that you will hate to check out.

The Spooky Haunted US Cities

Halloween is right around the corner, will you be able to make it through these haunted US cities alive?

Published

     Halloween is just around the corner which means it is time to start getting spooked. Maybe your local haunted houses just aren’t cutting it anymore. You know when the mummy is going to pop out, and it’s not just that, you actually know the mummy. His name is Frank and he works at the furniture store. You had a beer with him last night. When the mummy at the haunted house calls you by your name then you know that you need to go somewhere else to find your frights. It’s time to stop heading to Frank’s haunted “house” aka his bachelor apartment and time to take a vacation to someplace that’s really scary. But where is the scariest place to travel to? How about a place that is actually haunted? Head to a place where the unexplained continually happens, where questions are left unanswered, a place that is truly haunted. We talked to our travel team and put together a list of the most haunted cities in the United States.

New Orleans, Louisiana
     New Orleans is an obvious place to start when it comes to a truly spooky town. This is the home of voodoo magic which has been the fare of countless movies and has lead to some pretty mysterious things happening. There were also massive Civil War battles so that should make for ghosts-a-plenty. IF you talk to any New Orleans native you will quickly hear some pretty spooky tales about the goings-on of this city that is sure to shake you to your bones. You can hop on a ghost tour if you really want to get low-down and visit the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 where Marie Laveau is buried. Marie Laveau is known for being a priestess of voodoo.

Savannah, Georgia
     Here in Savannah, you don’t just have ghosts floating around from Civil War battles, but also from the Revolutionary War. The haunted tours are all over this city and you are sure to see some spooky stuff while you visit this place. Savannah is said to have been built on an Indian burial ground, which would make sense because this whole place seems eerie and we all know that building something on top of an Indian burial ground has always been bad news.

Charleston, South Carolina
     The Old City Jail in Charleston is well known as one of the most haunted places on Planet EArth. The jail held runaway slaves, pirates and Civil War prisoners. Their spirits may account for the people who have heard chains dragging on the floor and have seen doors slam. The prisoners most talked about are Lavinia and John Fisher who are said to still haunt the jail to this very day.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
     Philadelphia is known for a lot, but not necessarily recognized for its unbelievably high ghost population. The Eastern State Penitentiary is a super scary place that is one of the most haunted places around. This was the prison that started solitary confinement which was sure to make the living mad and lead them to haunt this place for eternity. People have been grabbed by ghosts here so watch out on a tour and hopefully, you can come out with your pants still dry.

     The kids are back in school and work is in full swing, which means you’re already planning your next vacation. Are we wrong? Therefore, why not enjoy the splendor of North America’s greatest National Parks – without all the pesky crowds and blistering heat? Autumn is nature’s gift when the leaves change while their color pallets are spectacular, especially in these glorious National Parks.


Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
     There is no better place to see the wonderful fall foliage than along Skyline Drive in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park. A short two-hour drive from our nation’s capital, Shenandoah and Skyline drive are most popular between September and November for the breathtaking views of color-changing leaves as far as the eyes can see. Skyline Drive runs along the ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains with views of waterfalls and the occasional wildlife.

Mount Rainier National Park, Washington
     For people in the Pacific Northwest, you are already aware of the majesty of Mount airier. Just a short two-hour drive from Seattle, Mount Rainier looms large over the city’s skyline. This destination will be chilly but expectedly beautiful as you will have the hiking trails to yourself. There are over 250 miles of hiking trails that take you to the mountain’s impressive heights.

Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Tennessee
     Nine million people a year can’t be wrong – the Great Smokey Mountains National Park is a national treasure. Autumn here is simply divine – with an impressive array of fall foliage, you have to consider the experience a true joy when the weather is just perfect. The hiking is a pleasure with well-manicured trails and waterfalls all over the place.

Arches National Park, Utah
     Utah has some of the most diverse terrains and environments around and their National Parks are some of the best. Summers can be drainingly hot – avoid heatstroke and visit the Arches in the Fall. The arches are really incredible and the nighttime celestial display of stars and planets are like nowhere else. Horseback ride during the day and do some stargazing at night.

Acadia National Park, Maine
     If fall foliage is what you desire, there is nowhere else on Earth that offers these incredible views. It is about a three-hour drive from Portland, Maine but the drive is well worth it if you seek the leaf. You will see all the colors of the rainbow as the leaves slowly die and fall to the forest floor.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
     We all know about the geysers that erupt on a clock like a schedule but the crowds in the summer are terrible. Avoid the throngs of tourists and head to Yellowstone in the Autumn. The wildlife in Yellowstone at this time is very active, so expect to see elk, moose and even bears.

Imagine yourself flying amongst the clouds as you glide through the sky in a helicopter – the mind blown by the incredible views.

They may be loud but a helicopter ride will easily be the most memorable experience from any vacation. Check out the best destinations to take a helicopter ride and see things from a truly unique vantage point. 

Las Vegas

     Las Vegas is one of the busiest helicopter tour destinations, with plenty to see in a short ride. From the Vegas strip to the Hoover Dam to the granddaddy of them all, the Grand Canyon. A helicopter is the only way to see the Grand Canyon in all its glory and majesty. The Grand Canyon is over 270 miles long and can be 15 miles across; something that grand needs a copter to see it fully.

Niagara Falls

     Most people will tell you the best view of Niagara Falls is from a boat in the water beneath the falls, but that’s not true, obviously, the best view is from a helicopter. Niagara Falls is just a massive sight to see and with all the tourists that jam the site, it can be difficult to have a perfect vantage point. If you really want an amazing view that is unforgettable, you must see the falls from a helicopter. Imagine the immense beauty of something so powerful as Niagara Falls seen from above in the peace of a smoothly flying helicopter.

Kauai, Hawaii

     If you have seen the beginning scene of Jurassic Park then you know that in Kauai there are waterfalls only accessible by helicopter. Kauai is known as the garden island because it’s so lush and only 20% of the island is accessible by car. The island has many amazing sights that have to be seen by helicopter to understand how massive they are. The Na Pali Coast is the Western side of the Island and is characterized by the huge, steep mountains covered in green ferns. The entire side of the island is unreachable by car and a helicopter is the only way to see it or you can traverse the 17 miles up and down over a two-day hike. The Waimea Canyon is called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific as its massive and beautiful. Plus there are a dozen or so mega waterfalls you have to see from a helicopter.

New York City

     New York City is the mega-metropolis city that we all love and never have enough time to see it all when we visit. If you want to really understand how huge NYC is, you have to see it from a helicopter. Imagine flying between the skyscrapers, above the central park and around the Statue of Liberty. New York is such an expansive city it’s nearly impossible to catch it all in one trip, but a great way to check it out is a few hundred feet up, in a whirlybird.
