Under $100: Nice, France

Nice is a lovely city to explore and the weather is great for a large part of the year. Here’s what to do if you are on a budget.

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.

What to Look for on Free Comic Book Day

The first Saturday in May is a special time of year for comic book fans all over the country. Free Comic Book Day functions exactly like it sounds. Comic book stores across the country host a day of festivities where, regardless of whether you buy anything, you can walk away with free books.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
