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.
The entire month of February is Black History Month, and what better way to celebrate than by going to the home of the Civil Rights Movement? The birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement is in Montgomery, Alabama.
Montgomery, Alabama is Ready to Honor Black History Month
The city of Montgomery, Alabama is inviting people who are looking for a purposeful and meaningful travel experience to come and visit during Black History Month. Dawn Hathcock, who is the Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President of the Montgomery Area, said that the social justice movement going on right now has ignited a strong desire and demand for educational and purposeful travel.
He also stated that the city of Montgomery provides people with an enlightened perspective that they typically can’t find elsewhere. They have thought-provoking culture, civil rights experiences, and they help remind people of how far we’ve come as a nation. They also inspire people to continue fighting for change.
Indoor and Outdoor Experiences
If you’re planning on visiting Montgomery, Alabama, here are a few destinations and experiences you won’t want to miss out on.
The Rosa Parks Library and Museum
Located at Troy University, this museum celebrates the many accomplishments of individuals that were associated with the Montgomery Bus Boycott. There are permanent and rotating exhibits. There’s also a statue of Rosa Parks in downtown Montgomery, only a few feet from where Rosa Parks actually boarded the public bus back on December 01, 1995.
The Civil Rights Memorial
This memorial was designed by Maya Lin and is a place to remember all those who were killed during this explosive time in history.
Dexter Parsonage Museum
At one time, this was the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He lived in this home from 1954 to 1969, and it’s now a museum.
This was an eatery that has been operating since 1917. Back then, it was only of the very few eateries that ignored segregation laws and fed all hungry customers equally. They didn’t care if you were rich, poor, white, Black, young, or old.
