My wife and I enjoy all types of vacations, including everything from large cities to rustic retreats. We enjoy comfortable lodging and good food, but are especially interested in hotels and restaurants that provide good value. We also enjoy walking wherever we go, whether exploring new cities or hiking on mountain trails.
I have traveled to every state in the U.S. and most Canadian provinces, although we are now traveling more to destinations throughout the world. (My map includes only our most recent trips in the U.S.)
In planning our vacations, I rely heavily on Tripadvisor reviews. As a result, I try to highlight issues in my reviews that would have been helpful to me in deciding whether to stay in a certain hotel or inn, or what type of room to request. That is also why my ratings tend to be high -- because I generally select hotels that have been given high marks by other Tripadvisor reviewers.
