4 Reasons Why You Should Take a Beach Vacation in the Winter

Let’s face it: most of us in the United States will face a frigid cold winter blast at least once through the months of November through March. That’s a lengthy time of about five months where we might face the brutal results of a blizzard or ice storm.

Well, that friend has been right all along–taking a much-needed vacation to warm up and relax. Here’s why escaping the winter and taking a vacation on the beach is exactly just what we all need:

5 Perks of Traveling By Train

Like most people, I usually fly when I am traveling, mainly because it’s the most normal mode of transportation and relatively easy. However, I used to be train girl when I was young and would travel to Chicago regularly with my mother and grandmother to visit family. I just recently rediscovered the amazing benefits of train travel over airplanes when I opted for a cheaper train ride to Chicago than the overly expensive last minute flight. Here are five perks that train travel has over other transportation and why you should convert from planes to trains.

1. Packing is EASY

One thing I am really bad at is packing and all the airline restrictions only amplifies that trait. However, while packing for a train ride I found that packing was immediately easier. First you don’t have to worry about rules like liquid restrictions. On a train you can bring as much shampoo or conditioner as you want. You dont have measure out smaller bottles or rely on the hotel brand stuff that often smells like a bad hospital bath. On an airplane food and drinks aren’t allowed, but on trains you can pack a lunch and bring as much water as you want. Another major perk.

Before Your Cruise, Helpful Tips

Planning to explore the ocean blue on a cruise in 2014? Then these helpful tips are for you:

Check the Deck

The first place to start is by looking at the deck plan of the ship. When you choose your room make sure you know what is around it. If there is a club right below your room or a casino above it you may have to put up with noise all night long. Also make sure that you are closest to the amenities that you seek most. If you want to go to the pool every day you will probably want a room near the rear of the ship but if you are an early riser and want to beat the breakfast rush choose a room close to the dining area. Be aware of what is around you so you know what to expect.

Get to know your ship before you ever leave port. Know the perks and where things are. It will save you a lot of time and hassle as you make your way around the ship with ease. You could print out your deck plan and make notes on it or better do it electronically so you just need to whip out your phone.
