Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

One way to enjoy a new activity or jazz up an old favorite? Bringing your own! Pick out your favorite cans or bottles and pack a variety of adult beverages for your group to enjoy on your next outing.


While the easiest and most obvious, bringing your own drinks to dinner is a solid way to save some money and enjoy the meal with your own eclectic mix of drink options. Check out BYO options near you for a night out after a day of BYO activities.


Some axe-throwing and mini-golf locations allow guests to bring their own. Check the rules of the favorite destination near you.


If the season allows and you’re lucky enough to have one in your area, a pool with a view is always a great idea. Check out the rules for BYO beverages, as they are generally accepted, and pack your cooler.


Looking for a crafty activity or something that lets you walk away with more than a buzz? There are plenty of activities involving some artistic liberties, including candle making at Scent & Sip, Wick It, Stone Candle Bar and Wax and Wine, or creating wood sign designs or even furniture refinishing. The old standby of painting classes is most readily available, but with a little direction, you can find more unique activities in your area. Check out availability in locations near you and have a productive day of BYO fun.


If you can’t find anything worth making in your area, host your own BYO party.

Ways to Sweat Less While Traveling

Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Under $100: El Raval, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
