Honeymoon in a Vacation Home

Congratulations, you’ve found the one, said your vows, and you’re ready to get out of your hometown and have a great honeymoon. While you’ve been getting lots of marriage advice from everyone and their mother, here’s a good tip that you might actually use. When couples go honeymooning, a hotel seems like the inevitable. There is, however, another option. You can live in a gorgeous vacation home during your honeymoon.

There are many great reasons to choose a vacation home over a hotel. First of all, you’ve just had to endure every one of your friends and family probably since the moment you started planning your wedding. The two of you could use some serious alone time. In a vacation home, there is no one but the two of you. No 12 o’clock ‘housekeeping’ calls, no distracting noise from the next room, and no snobby hotel clerks to answer to. It’s just you and your sweetheart.

Many great vacation homes offer a pool just like a hotel, however, the pool is all yours. You don’t have to share it with other guests, or wait until midnight to take a romantic swim together. And, if you decide to have guests on your honeymoon, with a vacation home, you will have plenty of room. You won’t be cramped up inside a stuffy hotel room.

The good vacation homes are located in the perfect place. You will be just a few minutes away from all of the great places that you might want to visit. Then, when you’re ready to give up on the sights, you can return to your vacation home and enjoy the peace and quiet with your spouse. The homes are beautiful as well, and offer the finest amenities, like big-screen televisions with DVD and cable. They are beautifully furnished and you will be surrounded in luxury. Guys, this is definitely a winner and your woman will love you for it. She will feel like a queen in the vacation home you choose.

You don’t have to stay in a stuffy hotel where you will be surrounded by hotel guests or shut up in your tiny room. A vacation home offers an affordable, lovely atmosphere to spend your honeymoon. After all, before long you will be back in your real home and back to the jobs, family, hustle and bustle. Make this time of your life memorable. Forget the hotel, and get an amazing vacation home. You’ll thank yourself later.

Universal Orlando Blue Man Group Show

Universal Orlando Blue Man Group


            The blue man group is the newest group to hit Universal Orlando, and it’s a show that you certainly don’t want to miss.  The show has an ‘out of this world’ quality.  That’s not a bad thing by any means.  You will most definitely be entertained.  The show is a combination of music, lights and some comedy. 

            At one point in the show, you may feel as if you are in some other world, with the amazing colored lights flashing and bobbing, and the drumming.  Then at another point, you find yourself laughing at these incredible blue men.  There is a point in the show when the blue men interact with a couple of members of the audience, and it makes for some great laughs.

            The costumes the blue men wear are comprised of latex caps which make them look bald, and tons of blue paint on their faces and heads.  They wear black clothing as well.  The blue men work with fluids, lights, and some unidentifiable things.  They make such a great mess that the people in the front row are given plastic coverings to protect themselves from flying liquids, paints and food.  Food?  Yeah.  In one past show, the Blue Men Group actually made an attempt to provide an audience member with a romantic dinner using a Twinkie.  This should give you some idea of what it’s like to see them live.

            If you’ve seen the Blue Man Group before, you will be pleased that along with their own theater in Universal Orlando, they have come up with some new acts for this venue.  The Blue Man Group never talks.  Throughout the whole performance, they manage to entertain, make people laugh, and create a spectacular show without uttering one word.

            One of the greatest things about the Blue Man Group is that you can feel free to take your entire family to the show.  There is nothing that is ‘adult’ about the show.  You don’t have to feel nervous about taking the kids to the show, unless they are very young and might be scared of big blue guys who play with colored lights and paint.  Most children actually love it because of the bright color and unusual sounds.  This is one show that is unlike any other.  If you haven’t seen this show, it is most definitely something that you should do.  It’s a guaranteed good, unique time! 

Sea World Orlando

Sea World in Orlando, Florida is a 200 acre marine life park that features daily animal exhibits, attractions, and many other amazing things. If you’ve never considered visiting Sea World, then you most definitely should. There’s good news for those of you who have been there before as well. There are some great new features that are remarkable.

This is one of the greatest places to take the family when you’re on vacation in Orlando. Kids love seeing the scheduled animal performances and interactive lessons. The adults will be surprised at how much fun they will have as well. At the waterfront, there are several places to grab some good food, take a minute to rest your feet, and catch a street performer doing his or her thing.

If you decide to visit, one of the things that you must do is visit the ‘Journey to Atlantis.’ This is a water splashing water coaster that features 2 steep drops. These are guaranteed to get your heart racing and your blood pumping. Sea World is also one of the best places to see endangered Manatees. These gentle giants are dying in large numbers due to the injuries from boat propellers. The people at Sea World rescue Manatees and give them a great home.

One of the greatest parts of Sea World is The ‘Odyssea.’ This is a half hour long show that features an acrobatic show that’s sure to delight the kids and the adults. It’s an underwater themed show, and has been compared to Cirque de Soleil. Kids will love posing a picture with beautiful Clydesdale horses, and being able to feed the dolphins. At the ‘Dolphin Nursery,’ tourists can see the newly born baby dolphins, and watch them swimming around in the water.

The best thing at Sea World, and something that all families and individuals should see is the ‘Pets Ahoy’ display. This show features all different kinds of animals, from dogs and cats to skunks and pot-bellied pigs. They put on a great show that is funny and charming, and show off many learned behaviors. Many of these animals were rescued from the local animal shelters. It truly is one of those things that you just have to see to appreciate it. It’s incredible. Sea World is an amazing place to visit, with so many great things to see. This place definitely gets an A+.
