Trip Report: Clearwater Beach, Florida

Inbound For this year's Memorial Weekend I ventured down to Clearwater Beach, Florida to enjoy the beautiful beach with my girlfriend and a couple of friends. Our Southwest direct flight from Indianapolis to Tampa Bay left early Saturday morning. Now I am not big on spending money so I used my Southwest points to fly three of us and only paid $33.60. The best part is I just earned my Southwest Companion pass so my girlfriend flies free when I fly whether I pay cash or with points. I earned mo...

Trip Report: Las Vegas, The Palazzo, and Allegiant Air

View of Las Vegas from a room in The Palazzo
Last weekend was my first trip to wonderful Las Vegas! It was just a quick trip with only two nights but I think it was the perfect amount of time in Vegas at least for me.

It became a great debate as to where we would go, ranging from Florida destinations to Kansas City, what does one do there??

Booking an Allegiant Air Flight From Indianapolis?

Allegiant Air Booking Flights from Indianapolis
Allegiant Air recently started new routes from Indianapolis this month to a couple destinations including New Orleans, Las Vegas, Punta Gorda, and Orlando.

With the trip being only for a weekend I needed very specific departure times and wanted to min...

Weekend Trip: Perfect North an Indiana Ski Resort?

Perfect North Ski Resort View From the Lodge
Growing up in the Midwest and being an avid snowboarding I know not to expect too much at the local ski resorts but I have been pleasantly surprised every time I have been to Perfect North. First off, Perfect North is an Indiana ski resort which right there doesn't make much sense with Indiana being as flat as a pancake. Last year I went to Perfect North for the first time after record snowfall in Indiana and hit all the most difficult runs on my snowboard but this year I wanted to learn how...

Trip Report: Colorado Snowboarding Trip

Colorado Ski Trip
  For my first trip of 2015 I booked a Colorado snowboarding trip over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend with some old buddies. I managed to book the flights nearly four months ago thanks to Southwest's generous cancellation policies. They allow you to cancel and rebook flights up to 24 hours prior to flight, granted you don't get your money back directly, the difference does become a travel voucher which is good for use within one year. With this is in mind, I was able to rebook the fl...
