Smoky Mountains Backcountry Campsite 28 Review

Backcountry campsite 28 in the Smoky Mountains is an amazing campsite! Situated at approximately 3,455 feet, it's a nice hike from the Middle Prong Trail trailhead past Tremont. The hike out is almost completely downhill. We camped here in January and the temperature was five degrees. It snowed all night and the hike out was

Sunset Overlooking Coral Bay

Coral Bay is located on the east end of St. John. It's my favorite part of St. John because it's like sleeping in a jungle. There are minimal lights, no large businesses and it truly has the island feel. This is where I recommend staying on St. John! Enjoy and be sure to subscribe to

Soggy Dollar Bar Drink Review

Soggy Dollar Bar has amazing drinks! Soggy is famous for the Painkiller but there are multiple other drinks that I love even more! Soggy Dollar Bar is located on White Bay on Jost Van Dyke.

Soggy Dollar Bar AFTER Hurricane Irma

Soggy Dollar Bar is my favorite beach bar in the world! Soggy is only accessible via boat and that's how it got its name (your money gets wet, while swimming to shore).

Cinnamon Bay, St. John with Unusually Large Waves

This is Cinnamon Bay. It's one of St. John's many popular beaches. The water is typically calm here and is excellent for paddle boarding. Since there was a hurricane close by, the waves and current were strong enough today that I lost my expensive pair of Costa sunglasses with glass lenses!!!! Best of luck to

St. John’s Best Beaches

These are St. John's best beaches! St. John is full of many wonderful beaches and all are wonderful. What makes St. John such a wonderful island is that most of the island is a National Park. St. John has not been ruined by high-rise resorts, etc. as the result of that. Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay,

St. Thomas to St. John Car Barge

The car barge is the only way to take a vehicle from St. Thomas to St. John. I always rent a Jeep at Discount Car VI on St. Thomas and ferry it over to St. John on the car barge. Check the official car barge schedule but it typically runs hourly. I never purchase round-trip

Cinnamon Bay – September, 2019

Cinnamon Bay, St. John was hit hard by Irma. This is what Cinnamon Bay looks like currently. The beach at Cinnamon Bay is still wonderful and there is plenty of vegetation. Unfortunately, none of the Cinnamon Bay facilities have reopened as of September, 2019. There was no fee to park at Cinnamon Bay though! I

Providenciales Airport Outside Bar – Turks & Caicos

When departing Turks & Caicos, be sure to check out the outside bar. It's an open-air bar and you can watch the planes takeoff and land. It's really cool! #Providenciales
