Is it possible that an entire US state could be incredible? I mean nearly every aspect of it too. It's hard to imagine but the answer is yes.... and that state is Vermont. If you've never been, it should get on your bucket list.

It’s almost that time of the year again for the spectacular show of fall foliage with the vibrant color displays of orange, scarlet, gold and deep purple.  Autumn makes us want to go on a tour or cruise in New England or a road trip to the Rockies.

I recently returned home from my first summer visit to the Colorado Rockies. Prior to this trip it was always Vail, Breckenridge or Keystone for skiing in the winter.   With my traveling buddy, Sandy, we ventured out to many of the main sites.

Strolling Along in Savannah

Posted by: Donna Smith, Special Contributor on Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Savannah takes me back in time with its antebellum architecture and atmosphere. The historic district is filled with beautiful oak trees, cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and mansions from the Civil War era. I thought perhaps I would see Scarlett and Rhett walking past at any moment.
