Reviews / Hotel

Massanutten Resort is one of the largest ski resorts on the East Coast and offers 6,000 acres of land to ski and explore. In addition, it features a wide array of amenities that’ll keep you busy for weeks. Having grown up nearby and having visited numerous times, I can safely say there are few resorts as fun as this one.


The resort boasts 14 runs for skiers spread out over 70 acres. My favorite thing about Massanutten is the skiing here is accessible to everyone; there are plenty of advanced runs and beginner. If you’re not into skiing, the resort is also famous for its snowtubing and ice skating in the winter.


During the summer months, the resort opens up its famous waterparks. The indoor and outdoor parks features body slides, a floating river and some indoor surfing to help you practice for your trip to the beach. Of course, there’s plenty of golfing to enjoy outside as well. Massanutten Resort rests in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley, arguably one of the most stunning regions in the country. The entire resort is surrounded by rolling hills and miles of trails to hike and bike. On site, you’ll also find three restaurants, all with delicious menus, along with a great arcade area that’s fit for both kids and adults.


Massanutten Resort was one of my favorite destinations when I was a child, and it still offers tons of fun for me as an adult. It’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway or family vacation. Check out the website to see everything it has to offer.

What To Do Before Boarding a Plane

Boarding a plane seems like an easy enough process, but before settling into your seat for the next few hours or even an entire day, be sure to remember these pre-boarding rituals that will ensure a more peaceful flight.

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.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
