Visiting Bloomington Indiana - What To Do!

Liz Mays
August 31, 2015
An Indiana University visit many, many years ago brought me to Bloomington Indiana but I never left the campus, so it was fun to explore the city itself recently. Bloomington is home to a vibrant college community, but still retains small town charm, and the thriving art, cultural and foodie scene make it a destination well worth visiting.

If you've never been to Galveston, you're missing out! This small tropical island (spanning just 32 miles long and 2 1/2 miles wide) along the Gulf Coast of Mexico in southern Texas makes a great vacation destination, and not just for the warm water beaches. There are so many things to do in Galveston, TX! I visited the island last summer for a couple of days, and had the chance to experience a bit of what makes it so special.

Where you choose to stay when traveling has the potential to greatly enhance a vacation or put a pall over it, and I think it's one of the most important things to consider when making travel plans. I've stayed in many perfectly pleasant hotels, but when I'm traveling and come across exceptional properties like these two Galveston hotels, they deserve to be called out with their own post.

The moment you catch sight of historic downtown Grapevine, TX you get caught up in the old-timey flavor and charm. It's a one-of-a-kind, friendly and walkable little town, and the heart of it all lies on Main Street. Although I only had about a half day to spend there, I managed to see quite a bit, so here are some fun ideas on what to see, do and eat there if you only have a few hours like I did.
