Flyover states to visit

If you’ve ever traveled by plane across the US, there’s a good chance you’ve been over what are known as “flyover states.” You know, the places no one really ever visits, but you need to fly over them to get to where you are trying to go. If you’re looking out your window from the sky above, you’ll usually see a lot of green, and not much else.

The Midwest and Plains region isn’t known for big flashy attractions, but rather lots of land, nature, fields, farms, and suburbs where people live their lives. But this doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do in these seemingly plain destinations. In fact, it’s the less traveled locations that often have the most to offer.

timeshare industry

2015 saw a great deal of jobs and tax revenue added to local economies thanks to the timeshare industry. According to reports by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), U.S. timeshare hot spots like Florida, California, Las Vegas, and South Carolina all saw tens of thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars contributed to their economies through salaries, revenue, and tourist spending.

The statistics from 2015 are evidence of yet another year of growth for the timeshare industry, with both occupancy rates and consumer interest rising in recent years. The nation-wide impact of the growing timeshare industry in the United States totaled $79.5 billion in consumer spending, along with more than 500,000 jobs and $10 billion in tax revenue.

Cuba travel 2017

Ever since the United States began to normalize relations with Cuba in late 2015, the travel world began to wonder at the possibilities. For the first time in over 50 years, American travelers could be able to seamlessly book vacations in one of the Caribbean’s most alluring destinations.

The Current State of Cuba Travel

With flights touching down and the island nation topping lists of best places to visit this year, many are looking to travel to Cuba in 2017.

That includes the Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Havana, the only property managed by a major American-based brand (Starwood).
