Why You Should Visit Cities After Natural Disasters

You watch the news and see stories about natural disasters all the time. Right now I’m watching people I know post from Key West, talking about the destruction caused there by Hurricane Irma. Natural events happen. Hurricanes, Floods, Tornadoes. Earthquakes. Wildfires. We can’t avoid them.

One thing you need to know is the people who live in these areas often make their living by providing for the numerous tourists who flock to visit. After cleaning up and getting basic services on line, the next priority is to get the guest areas ready as quickly as possible, often even before cleaning up their own personal properties.

That’s why you need to support these places instead of putting off trips because the area might still be “recovering.”

Starwood & Marriott Winter Hotel Promotions Are Out!!

I previously wrote about the winter promotions for IHG and Hilton. But with all of the Hurricane Irma excitement, I missed out on the promos that Starwood and Marriott announced this past week. Now that things are getting back to normal, I’m checking to see if any of these are valuable. As always, if you think you might be eligible for any promotion, it pays to register even if you don’t take advantage of it. Otherwise you might forget or miss out on the registration date.

Here are the details for each promotion:

If You Snooze, You Lose

About a month ago, I was in the middle of writing an article about a Starbucks offer. Here was the great title I came up with.

Starbucks: Get $10 When You Buy $10 E-Gift Card With Visa Checkout

There was just one problem. By the time I wrote the article and double checked the links before publishing it, the offer was gone.

Hotel Review: Twin Mountain Inn, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is most famously known as home of the Dollywood theme park. Here’s a description from Wikipedia.

Situated just five miles (8 km) north of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge is a tourist destination that caters primarily to Southern culture and country music fans. The city’s attractions include Dollywood, as well as numerous gift shopsoutlet mallsamusement rides, and music theaters.

While Pigeon Forge isn’t that much of a nationally known destination, it does welcome around 11 million visitors every year. The nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park is also the most visited National Park in the country. While both Dollywood and a National Park would normally be reasons for us to visit the area, we had a different reason for this trip.
