All inclusive vacations

If taking the family on vacation sounds more like "work" than an actual "vacation", you should consider an "all-inclusive" getaway where everything - including food, drink and entertainment - is provided so that you can actually relax.

There are currently some terrific all-inclusive travel deals to destinations such as Jamaica, Mexico, the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic!

Check with your local travel professional to discover these values!

Dawn Patrol Road Trip to Dayton OH

Dawn patrol to me during college football practice meant we were early to run and run and run! 

As I boy I read volumes about the daring men and their flying machines in WW1 so I'm really looking forward to this event.  

This time it’s a term used in World War 1 aviation. It’s top down time, weather permitting, for a journey over to Dayton O-H-I-O!  

The plan is to catch one of the nation's premier historical aviation events will bring the excitement and adrenaline of early air power to Ohio from Sept. 23-25, 2011. The three-day World War I DawnPatrol Rendezvous features vintage original and reproduction WWI aircraft, radio-controlled models, era automobiles, period re-enactors and a collector's show. 

This flying event is offered every other year by the museum and the Great War Aeroplanes Association.

Happy travels!

Because there are so many vacation choices today, the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) has commissioned a team of psychologists to develop a fun and entertaining self-test to help you determine the kind of vacation tour or package that best suits your personality and personal preferences

Once you've determined your vacation personality, you'll be able to work with your travel agent and select the perfect tour package that best suits your personality and needs.
