Travel Trends


My son and I went to the NY Times Travel Show so you didn’t have to! Our picks for most interesting were:

Coolest Airline: Take some downtime in the desert. Virgin America now flies from JFK to Palm Springs with a quick stop in San Francisco. Mellow out with moodlighting and cocktails on demand during this flight. Palm Springs is an exotic oasis for relaxation. The Joshua Tree National Park is just a one-hour drive away. Spring and fall are the best times to go.

Family Adventure Outfitters: Families have the option to experience something more interesting than your normal beach holiday. Gadventures provides a wide selection of affordable family group tours, safaris and expeditions across the world. From a riverboat cruise down the Amazon to the legendary pyramids of Egypt you can create a family memory that will last a lifetime. At the Adventure Center, families can choose from a global selection: See the pyramids and sail a felucca down the Nile, ride elephants through jungles of Northern Thailand, see big game in the wild in the Serengeti, or explore a cloud forest in Costa Rica.

Exotic African Safaris: Rothschild Safaris plan family safaris with kid’s programs at Nairobi’s Giraffe Manor, Botswana’s Young Explorer’s Camp and more. Activities vary, but can include game drives, bush walks, fishing, canoe trips and bush crafts.

Luxurious Costa Rican Villas (with our without kids): Mead Brown is a boutique vacation rental firm offering private villas on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast (3 hours to the Arenal volcano or Monteverde Cloud Forest). These Costa Rican luxury villas can provide personal service like chef service, adventure trips, tours, and transfers.

Sophisticated All-Inclusive Resorts – An easy vacation choice is Dreams Resorts & Spas or Now Resorts & Spas. NOW Jade Riviera and Dreams Cancun provide upscale luxury with innovative spa treatments, kid clubs, and fitness programs.

Ground Transportation: The Parking Spot at Newark Airport has off-site parking with shuttles every 5-7 minutes, valet parking, and online reservations. Limo Cart is a ground transportation website where people can find the best deals on taxis, shuttles, SUV’s and limousines in one central place.

Must Have Travel Accesory: Goal Zero sells easy-to-use portable solar power products. Charge or Power almost anything from the sun: phones, laptops, lights, refrigerators.
