Sierra Redmond is a journalist and a travel blogger. Knowing this, it doesn’t sound strange that her family decided to trade holiday gifts for an adventure in Mexico. They have also decided on doing it again in the future.

The Redmond family is an active-duty military family, currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada, although they have had the pleasure of living in other places. Sierra Redmond loves luxury traveling, but it’s the food that gets her going. Let’s admit it, food tourism is the best kind of travel experience one can get.

The Redmond FamilyRelease the Holiday Dinner Hosting Pressure

Everyone who’s hosted a holiday dinner party knows the pressure that comes along with plans and meal preparation. There’s always something that will break when the guests arrive, there will always be a missing ingredient for the perfect recipe. In the rare case that everything runs smoothly, the pressure is still there, and it’s never too late for things to go wrong.

Traveling May Be Cheaper Than Holiday Gifts

When you choose to travel for the holidays, you’re not just releasing the pressure related to hosting or even being a guest but can also save money if you do it right. Think of a cruise getaway or an all-inclusive vacation.

The best thing? A short trip for the holidays may even be the better option for your budget. At least, this is the Redmonds’ experience.

Cultural Awareness Is the Best Gift

Adopting the travel practice at an early age allows kids to live a life rich in culture, which is the best gift a parent can think of. Also, holidays are meant for families to spend time together and not worry about dinner preparations.

This New York Rockaways Beach Hotel Has Us Dreaming of Summer

While most people’s vacation plans have been put on hold due to the ongoing pandemic, it’s never too early to start thinking about your next trip, right? Most people head to the state of New York to check out the Big Apple, Niagara Falls, or the Hamptons, it seems as though more and more people are checking out the Rockaway Peninsula. New developments are popping up in this area all the time, and this new beach hotel has us seriously dreaming of some summer sun…

In The Heart of Rockaway

The Rockaway Peninsula has seen a surge in its popularity over the years, and it’s not hard to understand why. Who doesn’t want to explore the beach while being under an hour away from New York City? Rockaway has become one of the buzziest beach communities in the state, but it has often struggled with the number of people who want to spend their time here in the past. Thankfully, a new hotel offers up a whole new accommodation option.

The Rockaway Hotel

This new development is called The Rockaway Hotel – and staying true to its surroundings, it has been built as the ultimate beach hotel. The aim of this hotel is to provide all-year-round service to those who need it and to offer amenities that just can’t be beaten by any other Airbnb or accommodation option out there. It has everything, including numerous bars and restaurants, 53 guest rooms, eight extended-stay suites, a pool deck, and some seriously impressive views of the beach and the ocean.

An Impressive Project

There’s no doubt about the fact that this has been an impressive project, and the developers have come a long way since it first broke ground in 2018. While it’s not known whether we’ll be able to travel anytime soon, we are definitely adding this hotel to our to-stay list.

We are seriously dreaming of summer right now.
