Michigan's Adventure 2017!

I received a complimentary tickets to Michigan's Adventure in order to facilitate this review

Michigan's Adventure is 61 years old this year! We had the chance to go yesterday and it was a fun family affair for everyone. Located in Muskegon Michigan it is only miles from the beach and Lake Michigan. This was about a 3.5 hour drive from us. 

There were so many rides to do and so many diverse rides. Perfect for families of all ages. There were Children's Rides, Family Friendly Rides, Roller Coasters and more. 

My middle got to ride his first REAL coaster, Zach's Zoomer (first pic in the collage) and he had a blast!

Where to take your Russian Lady

Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union dating Russian girls came in fashion. All that western men complaining about overly-emancipated western women have been lingering to online dating services that offered Russian girls. Of course young Russian women are very popular among western men, but certain men are not looking for young flesh. They are much more into finding a life long-partner, thus they are looking for mature Russian ladies.

When you are experienced it is way better to find someone who is experienced as well. Russian ladies who lived half of their lives in the Soviet Union and half of their lives in contemporary Russia saw much more than you might think. They may be of your age, but your experience doesn't compare to theirs. So, what can you offer to a lady like that?
They know enough about the world, but most of their knowledge comes from books as, first the Iron Curtain and then economic crisis left them without chances to travel around the world. So, the best you can do is travel with her. Here are some tips on where to take your Russian lady.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Thanks to its sandstone spires, three-and-a-half mile perimeter moat and artistry Angkor Wat became a national treasure known around the world. The temple complex was built in 12th Century, it became the most valuable architectural achievement of the ancient times. Moreover, Angkor Wat remains the largest religious monument in the world. The complex of one thousand temples was first dedicated to Vishu, and later became the centre of Theravada Buddhism.

Galapagos Islands

Galapagos Islands in a home to incredible and diverse flora and fauna, which definitely is not limited to giant tortoise and marine iguana. The main thing about species that inhabit Galapagos Islands is that they can't be found in any other corner of the world. Moreover, Galapagos Islands have a very interesting history. Now the islands are known as a protected national park, where visitors can get a closer look on the wildlife, while enjoying the boat tours, hiking, and scuba diving. What is less known that Galapagos Islands were one-time outpost of prisoner and pirates.

Great Wall of China, China

Of course all walls are great if the roof doesn't fall, but Great Wall of China is the largest architectural structure ever built. Moreover, this wall that snakes through the whole China is the only man-built structure that can been seen out of space. The wall passes through 156 counties of China and has more than 7 thousands of lookout towers. Taking in consideration that the wall if more than 2,000 years old, it is definitely a must see.

Grand Canyon, USA

If you thought that there were no wonders in the US to surprise you lady, you were terribly wrong. You have forgotten the North America's greatest natural wonder – the Grand Canyon. This red-hued canyon is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and over one mile deep. The view of the canyon will make yours and your Russian lady's mouths drop in awe.

Where Will your Family go for a Summer Vacation?

When summertime arrives, many families are out and about. They can’t wait to leave the school year behind them, along with getting a little break from the daily work cycle.

With that in mind, where will your family’s summer plans take you?

Whether you are planning a nice week or two away from the daily grind or a few day trips, make them count. Remember, summer goes by at the blink of an eye, so you want to make every moment count.

That said there are likely plenty of options on the table for you, so if you have not already, get planning today.

Make the Most of Summer

So that you and your family make the most of your summer travel experiences, keep a few tips in mind:

1. Booking

Above all else, make sure you book your trip/s with time to spare. Make note that hotels and attractions tend to fill up over the summertime, so don’t get caught short.

For instance, if you are planning on a visit to Southern California, summer is one of the busiest times of the year.

Many living in Arizona and Nevada like to escape the heat and head for cooler weather.

As such, areas like San Diego and Los Angeles can get quite crowded with tourists. When this happens, hotels and attractions tend to fill up. By making hotel and other reservations early, you’re almost assured to get what you want.

Another tip is to look at a variety of sites to book your hotels, rental cars and airlines.

While you can deal direct with those businesses, you may find specials via travel sites.

Spending some extra time surfing the Internet can pay dividends.

2. Specials

Depending on when and where you travel, be sure to look out for deals at different attractions.

Countless attractions offer deals for members of the military, senior citizens, and kids.

Whether Universal Hollywood tickets, the San Diego Zoo or Disneyland; look for deals.

Also consider going to your choice destination on less crowded days of the week. In some cases, the venue will lower the price of admission a few dollars, knowing it is not one of their busiest days.

3. Kids

As a parent, you know all too well how distracted your children can get at times.

While their motors may be going a mile a minute, they can lose their focus. As such, you might find them not enjoying all there is to see and do. Be sure to plan things out so both they and you don’t over extend yourselves. The last thing a family vacation or even day trip needs is cranky children and even crankier parents.

What if all your kids want to do are the rides, while you’re more interested in taking in the scenery?

Come up with a plan where both parties get what they want.

You can save the rides for a little later in the day, with the notion that the kids have to do some sightseeing first. In most cases, your younger ones will cooperate. This will also spare you having some tired kids to take around to the things you want to see.

In the event your summer vacation is sticking closer to home, this doesn’t mean you can’t get away for a night or two.

As an example, an Orange County (Calif.) family can still do Disneyland or Universal Hollywood for an overnight or weekend. By getting out of the house for more than a day, you get a break from the daily routine. In most cases, the kids will find it cool too that they get to sleep somewhere else for a night or two.

No matter where summer vacation travel will take you, come back with some great memories.
