Destinations / North America

If you are traveling near Atlantic City and get the itch to visit a charming town with a big focus on boutique shops and friendly people, Historic Smithville is well worth the trip, no matter who you are traveling with. The wide range of shops and places to eat in addition to the things to do make the village perfect for friends or families alike.


If you happen to visit with kids, there is plenty to occupy them outside the shops. A train, carousel and paddle boats make for a great way to spend some time. Once you run through those options, the stores are eclectic enough to hold even young childrens’ attention.


The town exudes charm. From clothing boutiques to a packed candle store to a Christmas shop, there is plenty to see and do in the town. If you love old records, seashells or clothes, there is a store for you, plus many, many more.


The dining options in town are a little more restricted than the shopping options. If you’re in the mood for a simple burger, Fred and Ethel’s Lantern Light Tavern offers great specials and serves an excellent burger.


In the end, Historic Smithville is perfect to visit no matter who makes up your traveling group.

How To Handle a Negative Airbnb Experience

Airbnb is one of the most frequently used online platforms to book vacation accommodations, but there have been a few occasions when Airbnb customers have been stuck with a rental property nothing like the Airbnb ad presented, which definitely causes a vacation to get off on the wrong foot. If you’re faced with a less-than-satisfactory or what seems to be a fraudulent Airbnb property, here are the steps you should take to get your vacation back on track.

Jet Charter Services for Leisure Travel

Once reserved for elite travelers, the accessibility of private jet experiences is on the rise. Just like ride-sharing and home-sharing options including Uber and Airbnb, jet startups are also adopting the idea of pooling resources. Instead of splurging on first-class seats at a premium price tag, travelers can snag a seat in a private jet for about 50 percent more, depending on the location.

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.
