Fun-filled vacations across the nation and beyond

As a seasoned travel writer with more than 173,000 miles logged, I've come to the conclusion that memorable vacations have two things in common: great destinations and exceptional accommodations.

Among my favorite destinations are Williamsburg, Virginia; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and the Arizona desert.

You can book 2-5 nights at select Bluegreen resorts from as low as $149* and get a $75 Visa® Reward Card.

For me, the authenticity of Colonial Williamsburg is what beckons me back year after year. If I didn't know better, I'd swear it was still a colony of England. Myrtle Beach is popular with my family because they love the beach, fresh seafood and the entertaining atmosphere of the Boardwalk. The midway hawkers fascinate my son--and they always inspire smiles.

Believe it or not, my wife loves the Old West and the pioneering souls of those fueled by a chance to stake their claim. So upon a recommendation from a friend, we planned a trip to Arizona to sample a Bluegreen Getaways vacation at Cibola Vista Resort and Spa. She relaxed with spa treatments. My kids spent hours playing on a three-story water slide. I rode off into the sunset on a guided horseback tour. Our suite was beautifully appointed with Southwestern décor to enhance the legendary beauty of the desert landscape. These accommodations were far from anything found in a typical hotel room.

If there's one thing I've learned from traveling and our friend's suggestion, it's this: Bluegreen destinations provide ideal getaways and accommodations that suit your family's vacation interests. Now I'm recommending them to you.

Visit Bluegreen Getaways to see all the experiences waiting for you.
