    Checking out the Sights and Sounds of Locust Grove

    $0.00

    In the middle of a neighborhood in Louisville Kentucky is a Historic Home… Locust Grove.  The home was built in the 1790’s, and is on a beautiful piece of property.  General George Rodgers Clark came to this home, which was his sister’s, when his health was failing him.  He had a bedroom on the first floor of the house.  It is said that General Clark spent many hours sitting on the back porch looking at the Ohio River.

  2. Two for the Price of One:  Charleston/Daniel Island South Carolina

    Two for the Price of One: Charleston/Daniel Island South Carolina

    $0.00

    A wonderful place to visit any time of year is Charleston, South Carolina. History, architecture, great food, water elements and charm all come to mind when describing this area. Recently, I was made aware of a 4,000 acre island within the Charleston area that was formerly owned by the Guggenheim Foundation. The first residential property did not make an appearance here until 1996. Since then it has become a planned community with 8 parks, 25 miles of trails, 23 miles of rivers, golf courses, tennis clubs, shops and restaurants. Bingo, now you get two great areas for the price of one!

  17. No Passport Travel

    No Passport Travel

    $0.00

    Imagine a picture-perfect sunset, a cool island breeze, and the relaxing sound of waves crashing against the shore while you sip the juice out of a fresh coconut. The thought of a tropical vacation is most enticing when you just want to get away, or at any time if we’re being honest. It’s a fantasy many of us long for, but we often think that jetting off to an exotic location that can offer all of this and more requires too much effort due to them being international destinations. Of course international travel mandates a current passport, which means going through customs and an even longer visit with the TSA. This is even more distressing if you don’t have a passport or if your passport has expired and you need to renew it. At the airport, security is magnified and even the smallest details will be scrutinized. If this has completely turned you off to traveling with a passport, we’ve got good news. Fortunately, there are beautiful tropical vacations you can visit with just your driver’s license in hand.
