Well it’s spring. The weather is warming and the kids will be out of school soon. Have you started to plan your summer vacations? What kind of summer vacations do you normally have?
I remember when I was a kid we used to go off for a week or two on a road trip with my parents. They’d pick a destination, like Vermont or British Columbia for example, and we’d drive there, stopping along the way as needed in hotels, motels and even cabins. It was fun, and as an adult I now realize it was a great way for a family to spend some time together, and it was probably cheaper than flying somewhere and staying in a resort.
I guess Chris and I still do those kinds of vacations – except ours are short trips most of the time, just a few hours drive and we’ll stay in a nice resort hotel for a weekend.
So what’s your plans for summer?
If you are going somewhere and will be staying in hotels, motels, resorts or might want to find vacation rentals you should visit Hotel Reservations. If you like road trips like we do, they’ve got a section in the left sidebar of their main page that you use to search for some great places within a short driving distance of your home. Plan your road trip and book your hotels or motels right on the hotelreservations.com site.
The site has Hotel listings for Countries and cities all over the world. You can easily do a search for a particular destination and then look up hotels, motels or resorts in that location. You can often see photos of the rooms and read information about the hotel, it’s location, and even get general driving directions from airports or major highways, and general attractions in the city or general area.
Actually, when you do a search for a hotel, motel or resort you can fill out the dates that you’d like book a room for, the results that come up are the hotels or motels that are available for that time period in that location. If you like what you see you can book your room right then and there. It’s one stop shopping.
I’ve bookmarked this site. Chris and I don’t get away very often and I’ve said many times before that most of our vacations also include friends or family. Now that I’m sick at home, and Chris has a job that gives him most weekends off again perhaps it’s time for a nice little weekend getaway. I mean, Niagara Falls is only a little more than an hour away – we could have a nice little weekend vacation there. Oh that sounds good.
