Where to Stay During Coachella 

The world’s music fans make the yearly pilgrimage to Indio California in the high desert every April for the festival of all festivals, don’t be left camping like some heathen. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is returning to the Empire Polo Club with back-to-back weekends April 14-16 and April 21-23. The lineup this year is headlined by Radiohead, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar so you know the crowds will be flocking to the area.

90 thousand plus people attend the event daily and all those people are looking for places to stay, don’t be left out in the desert nights without a sweet spot to crash. After a long day partying and rocking your hearts out, a quality bed and a hot shower are valuable commodities in the surrounding areas. Camping at a festival can be exhausting in it self let alone in 100-degree temperatures and crowds that large. The key to surviving Coachella is securing your travel accommodations early.

Here are my top 5v places to stay while attending Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Ace Hotel Palm Springs

Palm Springs, California

Where else are you going to stay when in Palm Springs, regardless of Coachella? The Ace is the place and is one of the hottest hotel chains appealing to the growing hipster market. The Ace in Downtown LA is a rock star’s second home so you may be sipping cocktails in the pool with some guitar gods. The ambiance at the Ace is hip and glam matched with an air of superiority.

Expect a huge event all weekend as the Ace won’t disappoint with their Coachella party. Great breakfast and a spa session will cure any Coachella hangover.

 

Orbit In

Palm Springs, California

Located in downtown Palm Springs, this hip throwback hotel offers vintage rooms with 1950’s décor, perfect to get you in the swinging mood. Room amenities include vinyl record turntables and wet bars, wonderful for cocktail hour anytime during that weekend. Expect the pools saltwater pool to be packed with festival goers cooling down between acts. Relax like the Rat Pack would’ve in their day and rock out to your day’s rock gods.

 

Desert Riviera Hotel

Palm Spring, California

This hotel’s biggest selling point to me is simple: the pool is open 24 hours baby! No nerd from the front desk telling you to “get out of the pool’ or “keep it down.” This hotel is made for partying and the Coachella weekends are no different. The rooms are fully renovated and modern, which is a nice change of pace on the throwback town of Palm Springs.

 

Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs

Palm Springs, California

Its name says it all, The Hard Rock is a great place to stay at a music festival. The rooms are large and funky, with modern furniture and bright colors.   Check out the “Sound of Your Stay” program where the hotel will set up a DJ turntable or electric guitar in your room for jamming purposes.   Bang around the hotel’s nightclub for an after, after, after party, yea that’s three afters for the crazy weekend you are in store for.

 

Hicksville Trailer Palace & Artist Retreat

Joshua Tree, California

This is the coolest place on earth, so where else do you stay during the coolest music festival on earth?

Book NOW! This place has limited rooms and is the place to stay during the festival weekend. Hicksville is a collection of mobile homes, trailers and shacks that are all individually themed. The ground is all green Astroturf, the trailers are kitschy and the ambiance is second to none. Highlight of my stay there is the B.B. gun shooting range. Get your mullets ready and book your stay at Hicksville, USA.

 

 Good luck on booking the crash pad of your choice and remember, its never too early to book. Rock on!

Your Next Vacation Could Be In Space

A newly started company by the name of Orion Span recently announced that they will soon be opening a luxury hotel… in space.

I’m calling it. We are officially in the future.

A newly started company by the name of Orion Span recently announced that they will soon be opening a luxury hotel… in space. In the statement, they claim that their first guests will get to enjoy an off-planet vacation as early as 2022. They named the hotel the Aurora Station, and it will allow for four guests and two crew members. The space-cation will last 12 days and will travel roughly 200 miles above the Earth. Um… where do I sign?!

But the perks don’t stop there, folks. Here are some of the other amazing things guests on the Aurora Station will get to enjoy: an average of 16 sunrises and sunsets every day, learning how to grow food while in orbit, experimenting with virtual reality tech, and a constant state of zero gravity. This trip will truly knock you off your feet!

The station will be roughly the size of a larger private jet (about 43 feet long and 14 feet wide). It will also offer high-speed internet so guests can still stay connected with family and friends back on Earth and, of course, post great Instagrams! But Orion Span isn’t stopping there. They have even bigger plans.

The CEO of Orion Span, Frank Bunger, also said in the statement that they have plans of one-day launching condos in space. Imagine living in space! “Our long-term vision is to sell actual space in those new modules. So, either for living or subleasing, that’s the future vision here – to create a long-term, sustainable human habitation in low Earth orbit.”

Bunger added the company (and his) overall mission is to make space available to all. It won’t be easy, though. Anyone who wishes to take the luxury trip will have to complete an extensive three-month training program. And while three months may seem like a lot of time, Bunger said that they have streamlined a training program that used to take an incredible 24 months. So it turns out three months isn’t that bad!

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’ve probably been thinking it the whole time you’ve been reading this article. “How much is this going to cost?” Great question. This futuristic trip requires an $80,000 refundable deposit and a whopping $9.5 million for the entire trip. The good news is you can put down your deposit right now! The list opened on April 5th. So if you happen to have a loose $80,000 laying around, now you finally have something to do with it!

Don’t Leave Home Without These Items (If You’re Going To Paris)

Paris is one of the most vacation-worthy cities in the world. But if you want to do Paris right, be sure to bring these must-have items!

Published

Paris is one of the most vacation-worthy cities in the world. The history, the culture, the art, the wine! You name it, Paris has it. It’s just one of those cities you have to experience before you die. But if you want to do Paris right, be sure to bring these must-have items!

POWER ADAPTER

One of the most potentially frustrating parts about traveling in Paris is the power outlets there. They’re completely different than ours in the states! So if you have anything that needs to be plugged (which, at this point, how could you not??) you’ll definitely want to invest in a power adapter. The good news is, it’s not that hard to find one once you’re actually in Paris.

RESTAURANT GUIDE

Obviously one of the best parts about a trip to Paris is the food. Honestly, Paris might very well be the best culinary city in the world. You’ll easily have 4 or 5 of the best meals of your life just in one week in Paris. But you’re going to want to make sure you hit as many of the best spots as you can. So be sure to bring a handy restaurant guide with you everywhere you go!

WINDPROOF UMBRELLA

We’ve all seen these somewhat funky looking umbrellas before. But aside from the potential stylish appeal, these umbrellas are actually very functional as they’re windproof! And that can be crucial to staying comfortable while walking around Paris. Not to mention, if you grab a transparent one you can keep yourself completely dry while not affecting your view of this beautiful city!

COMFORTABLE SHOES

This should be a no-brainer. One of the best ways to really experience Paris is just to walk around and take it all in. There’s an energy about the place that is just unmatched. Plus there are endless options out there when it comes to comfortable shoes, so you can still be stylish while you’re at it!

A TRAVEL BAG WITH HANDLES

While we obviously appreciate the benefits of rolling luggage, the convenience of it kind of goes out the window when you’re Paris thanks to all the narrow, cobblestone streets. Not only do they make rolling your suitcase to and from your hotel difficult, but they could actually just break the thing! So go out and find a durable bag that still has enough room to bring everything you need.

CELL PHONE TRIPOD STAND

Look, I know. Selfies can be very obnoxious and selfie sticks can be downright offensive. But don’t deprive yourself of the fun of taking tons of pictures just because you don’t want to look like an annoying teenager! Paris is a beautiful city that needs to be photographed and if you’re not actually in the photographs were you ever even in Paris?! Exactly. So invest in one of these handy cell phone tripods so you can get some great pictures without them blatantly looking like selfies.

A CORKSCREW (THAT’S TSA COMPLIANT)

What would a trip to Paris be without lots, and lots of wine? It would be pointless, that’s what. Did you know you can even drink wine in Paris’ public parks until as late as 4 p.m.? I know! So you’ll definitely want to have your own corkscrew on you at all times. Just make sure it’s TSA compliant so you don’t get arrested before even getting on your flight.

Protect Your Skin The Next Time You Travel

Travel can be terrible on your skin. So be smart on your next vacation and keep your beautiful skin hydrated and healthy.

Published

on

If you’re anything like me, you spend the entire week after a vacation taking care of your badly damaged skin. Whether it’s the pressure in the plane, the change in climate, or just the overall stress of traveling, vacation can be terrible for your skin!

But have no fear, Jetlaggin is here! And we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to keep your skin healthy and fresh on your next vacation. So read up, take some notes, and say goodbye to dry and flaky skin the week after a vacation!

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

Honestly, if you don’t know this by now, I don’t know what to do for you. Obviously, drinking plenty of water is good for your skin regardless of if you’re on vacation or not. But one thing that happens when you travel, you tend to drink more caffeine and alcohol than usual. And they both cause some serious dehydration.

But we wouldn’t dare tell you to stop drinking either! All we’re saying is, just make sure you drink lots and lots of water in addition. Get yourself a cool new water bottle while you’re at it. It will make the whole thing that much more fun for you. And your skin will thank you later!

PACK THAT CARRY-ON WITH SKIN PRODUCTS

While drinking lots of water is good for hydrating internally, you don’t want to forget to hydrate externally. I’m talking moisturizer, people! Those pressurized airplanes can really mess with your skin. So keep some facial mist and some moisturizing cream handy at all times.

And don’t you dare forget about those lips! There are plenty of great lip balms and lip repair products out there for your lip protection needs.

DON’T FORGET THAT ALL-IMPORTANT SPF

When most people think about traveling, they think about airports, airplanes, buses, hotel rooms, saunas, etc, etc. Notice anything similar about all those places? They’re all indoors! But you know what also happens on most vacations? Spending time outside! So don’t make the deadly mistake of forgetting to put on your sunscreen.

In addition to literally protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, it also does wonders for keeping your skin hydrated. Don’t be shy either. Just go for it and get yourself that SPF 50. Your skin deserves it!
