With travel and cruising making a comeback, it is time to start planning your next cruise vacation. An actor from the popular movie Mean Girls, Jonathan Bennett and his partner Jaymes Vaughn created their own LGBTQ+ cruise company to make members of the community comfortable while hitting the high seas.


The company, OUTbound, is curated specifically for LGBTQ+ travelers. Bennett and Vaughn took a look at things they liked and disliked about gay travel. They took the things they didn’t like and changed them to create a more positive experience.


The couple liked the idea of an intimate, family-based experience because, at the end of the day, they are all members of the same LGBTQ+ community and they want the experience to feel like a family at sea.


OUTbound partnered with local and LGBTQ+ tour operators to offer a collection of activities and excursions that specifically connect with the community. The adventures will take you deeper into the heart of local life with a specific focus on LGBTQ+ attractions and events.


The cruise company has plenty of options for travelers interested in different itineraries and destinations. Upcoming trips include destinations to the Greek Isles, Mekong River, Lisbon, Berlin and Amsterdam.


For more information on OUTbound and different itineraries, visit OUTbound’s website.

Booking a Camp Site Online Has Never Been Easier Thanks to Campspot

 If you’ve tried to book a camping spot at a private campground in the past, you’ve likely been frustrated by the somewhat antiquated reservations system a lot of private campgrounds use. You have to submit your information on a website, then wait for the campground to confirm, and that’s only if the campsite allows you to even book online. Some make you call or email. Nothing’s instantaneous or easy. However, if you use Campspot, it can be.
