Vacation Spots

This week I am linking up with Kelly at Kelly's Korner 
for Show Us Your Life. 
This week's topic is your favorite vacation spot!
I have two to share.
My all time favorite vacation
and then our "go to" getaway vacation. 

First is my all time favorite vacation spot.
The Cayman Islands!
It is by far the most beautiful and amazing place I have ever been. 
I would love to go back every year, but it's not in our budget.
We stayed at the Marriott on 7 Mile Beach.
Five years ago I would have highly recommended it, but after I saw it last year I'm not so sure.
If you go, you must stay on 7 Mile Beach though.

Everything there is pretty expensive.
Especially the food. 
Lunch for 4 people can easily cost $100, and I'm talking burgers and fries!
But the island is just so beautiful that it almost makes it worth every penny.
And if you have a little umbrella drink, it certainly makes it worth it.

I highly recommend doing the Stingray City Tour.
You board a catamaran and they take you out into the middle of the crystal blue
ocean and drop you off to swim with Stingrays.
It is incredible.
I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I can't wait to go back, and hopefully stay for a week with my hubby. 

My second favorite spot is our "go to" getaway, which is Las Vegas! 
We only live a few hours away, so it's the perfect place to jet off to for a few days.
We have stayed at several hotels on the strip.
My fav's are Mirage and Treasure Island.
We stayed at Mirage for our 1st anniversary and had the most amazing suite. 
You can read all about it here.
However I am DYING to stay at the Wynn.
That's happening on our next trip. 

There are so many wonderful restaurants in Vegas. 
I could literally spend the entire trip eating.
My favorite's are Border Grill and Dos Caminos. 
(You MUST order the guacamole at Dos Caminos)
And if you are in Vegas, you have to eat at a buffet.
The buffet at the Wynn is fantastic. 
You must go!

We usually spend the trip eating, drinking and walking the strip.
We have seen one show, and that was Mystere at Treasure Island.
The story line was a little strange,
but holy heck, the Cirque du Soleil performers were incredible.
You must see one show with Cirque du Soleil. 


  1. Dropping in from Kellyskorner. Looks SO beautiful!! So many places to visit when you read all of the blogs in the Linky party! Have a great weekend!

  2. I love Cayman! It was a part of my work region for a few years so while I've never vacationed there, I've made several business trips to the island!
