Moving to Vegas

Thanks to Lemuel Craft

Moving here to Vegas was a really huge life decision – it wasn’t something I took lightly. I was really worried that I’d be going out too much and not be able to focus on what was important at life but at the end of the day it was all about whether or not I had the motivation to really succeed on my own. As it turns out I not only had the motivation, I had the skill to be REALLY good at the hospitality business and that’s helped me immensely! I’ve now got my own home with furniture to boot and I even got a Directv nevada to watch games – how’s that for financially sound? I just wish I had thought to do something like this a long time ago – it really would have helped me gain some confidence to be on my feet and not worry so much about what my parents thought of me or my life choices. I feel good about life and about where my immediate future is headed.

For many who may not be aware, internet surfing can give you lots of information, and savings depending on what specific things you want to know or get. Almost all information and everything related to what we do everyday and we need can already be seen on the world wide web.

For instance, you can shop online, buy groceries online, order food online, read any information you want to learn about, etc... And speaking about online shopping, it is here where you can get big savings, discounts, coupons, daily deals, big sales and clearances and more as well.

Come to think of it, there are lots of free wi-fi nowadays. All you need to do is have your own laptop/PC and connect to it.

Internet is doing all the convenience for us, don't you think?

Cheap Holiday Themed Glasses from Zenni!


Zenni Optical has been gaining a lot of positive reviews from customers who were able to experience their services and their very affordable eyeglasses.
I think it helped many people avail eye cares and get affordable and yet high quality made glasses for all.
What is interesting to note is that Zenni Optical doesn't spend much about paid advertising. Mostly, people that are customers spread the "good word" by mouth through their own experiences ;). And probably for some, such as those internet surfers out there, they for sure know what are the services and the exclusive deals and specials they offer daily as well.
Products are directly fresh from the factories without any retail overhead, and no middlemen involved, one of the reasons why they sell them with a budget-friendly prices.
Another few more things good for these eyeglass products are that they are manufactured in fashionable and stylish ways to complement various customer likings and yet still are made out of great durability, safety and comfort too!
And most of all, this holiday season, Zenni Optical extends their Christmas greetings to all and now offers FREE shipping for all orders worth $50 or more within US territories.
Aren't you glad there is Zenni that takes care of everybody's eyes even during these holiday seasons? You might want to check those fantastic eye wears and you can even choose to have a holiday themed style to wear this season :).

Raystown Lake & Horseshoe Curve Experience

October 8, 2011

(as posted by my husband ;)

We began our day around 5:00 am with Ging awaking at 5:30. this is difficult for her but as usual she had us completely prepared with everything. so with our map quest in hand and GPS suction cupped to the dasboard, We were off and arrived early to our pick up point. Many were already there because senoir citizens arrive early. Ging would again be the baby of the trip although Lauren our hostess was young and looked alot like Nicole.

This was our first time using Rill's bus service and they were excellent; on time, nice and ready for us. Many of the folks had been with them and been together before because it felt like a family reunion. At exactly 7;45 am, we went to the second stop in Taylorsville to pick up a couple. After that we stopped in Middletown and had breakfast at McDonalds.

We left McDonalds and 2 hours later we arrived at the Raystown Lake Resort & Lodge. There we found the "Proud Mary", a paddlewheel criuse vessel waiting for us. We had a very traditional style buffet lunch which was really dinner served at lunch time, very delicious!

After the buffet we went on the top deck of the vessel and enjoyed a beautiful view of the lake and the beginning colors of fall. The weather was beautiful and a real highlight of the trip. The passengers were very pleasant and we enjoyed good conversation as well.

We both enjoy the fall foliage so we wanted to see a little of it before we leave for the Philippines.

Our next stop was to the special Railroad museum in Altoona. We watched a very interesting film and learned that Altoona was once the steam engine rail road capital of the world!

We had a chance to go back in time as we explored the museum and discovered what life was like during the hey day of the steam locomotive.

We learned that one of the challenges of expanding the rail road to the west, were the mountains. the answer to some of this challenge was the creation of the "Horseshoe Curve". This special curving rail gave height the rail and allows the locomotive to navigate the mountain. This was very impressive to watch since there are four parallel rails and we watched several long trains going on the curve in opposite directions.

Finally, with a very full day, it was dinner time and so we headed back with a final food stop at Gateway to alleviate our hunger. This took a lot longer that we planned since another bus had arrived there right before us. However, we were rounded up by Lauren & Joe (our driver) promptly and got on our way on time.

On the way home Rose (who was our informal leader) sent around an envelope for tips. I presented the envelope to Lauren & Joe as thanks for the great job they did. I called us the "Silver Fox" traveling group and made Rose our President.

We then arrived safely at our pick up point, drove home and reflected on a great day! Thanks to Ging!

Golf in Vegas

One of my hubby's favorite sports is golf. It was the summer last year when he started training me the basics of golfing and I find it fun!...and a lot of exercise too ;). Other than the aching arms and legs because of the long walks, golf is a cool kind of sport, and I no longer need to wonder why my husband is liking it as well.

On the other hand, I once visited Vegas last 2009 in December and I learned to like the place while we were there. Every time I happen to look at our photos, I would always tell my husband how I wish I could go back there again :).
And perhaps, this time, there is a much more valid reason to bring it up again with him speaking of golf!
I didn't even know there are a lot of awesome country clubs out there, a very good reason to choose Las Vegas Tee Times probably with friends or his co worker's group.
And yes...weatherwise, it would be just perfectly much better than playing golf in the eastern coast nowadays, lol!

I am also thinking of getting back to my trainings. I need to stretch up some more! ;).

Be Well While You Fly

Imagine with a trip that is long, baggage fees, zero leg room, etc...those are but exhausting things just by thinking about them.
But the following tips can help you and keep you stay healthy until you land!

Be sure to carry with you hand sanitizers. Places on the plane are usually things that get dirty more often...sneezing, coughing, things touched by people with dirty hands, etc...
Next line of defense is sleep! You should avoid staying up late at night before you travel. Lack of rest can cause a drop in immune function.

Don't wonder if you feel bloated while high up in the air. It is due to the fact that there is a rise of air pressure during your flight, and this can slow your digestion that makes you feel inflated. To counteract this, take something rich in magnesium. This is a muscle relaxant that loosens muscles in the gut that control digestion and can ease cramping and bloating. Good example you can take with you is Natural Calm, a powdered supplement that can be mixed into tea or water. You can also snack magnesium-rich nuts like whole grains.

Throbbing headaches can also be another culprit due to extra dry air on planes that can dehydrate you. Drink lots of water, and less alcohol. A coconut water is also good which is rich in potassium, a mineral that helps bring water into your body.

Avoid getting stiff and sore on your seat particularly in a long flight. Stand on your toes and go up and down, pumping your calves. Then grab each foot behind your butt and bend your knee to stretch your thigh. This is to avoid muscle pain and help prevent blood clots by boosting circulation.

Your Guide To Buying Your Car

You can still be a smart shopper for a car, and beat the dealer's intimidation tactics! Getting some tips from the following steps will help you out ;).

Step #1: Instead of choosing a car you love and figure out the financing later, you decide how much you can allocate in your household budget for the finances after paying your necessities like your food bill, utilities and mortgage. Be sure to set aside cash payments as well out of what you make every few months such as for your kid's tuition or home owner's taxes.
To determine you car payment, include the monthly cost of the car note, insurance, gas and maintenance. Your note should not exceed more than 10% of your take-home pay.

Step#2: Try to choose a vehicle by getting yourself acquainted with information on prices, ratings, car comparisons and specifications. Decide up front what specific features you prefer. Also check safety features like remote anti-theft monitoring devices. Read consumer reviews as well.

Step#3: Car goes down in value about 10-20% when it is being driven off a lot. Take note also about added expenses like gas, maintenance and new vehicle warranty. As much as possible you want to avoid a case situation where your monthly gas allowance exceeds your monthly car payment.

Step:#4: To get the best price, buy at the end of the month, year or in September. It is during these times that dealers are under pressure to meet their sales goals ;). And, new models are usually released in September too so that businesses have to move the prior year's inventory.
Bargaining wisely is all about arming yourslef with information and saying no to pressure tactics. Remember, you also have the power to demand what you want in a car as a buyer, from the color to the price.

Relax And Take A Mini Break!

Weekend trips are easier to plan than long vacays. Usually, four-day weekend trips for fall can have jaw-dropping deals, so go for it!

Considering traveling off peak.October and November is considered 'shoulder season', - the months between high seasons at destinations. That means bargain rates and fewer people.

Go for a family camp. Imagine having your vacays without the mosquitoes, moldy bunks or bug juice :). That's usually the idea behind summer camps that run through fall and are typically held in lodges, with heating and good food.

You can rent a place like lakeside cabins and beach houses during off-season which are more likely to be rented by the night, rather than exclusively by the week at a good price. Also, it's nice renting it with friends. That way, you can share child care, and each couple has a night off and no one has to pay for a babysitter.

Consider hitting the water like cruise lines that offer quickie getaways. During fall, a 4-day trip can often cost the same as a three day one, and a lot of lines have built-in kid programs, so you have the option of gown up R & R. :)

Weatherproofing Your Vacation

How would you feel being disrupted from travels? Too much upsetting and hassles, right? But no matter who's fault or right it is, there are steps you should take to prepare for the stormy days ahead on your trip.

Before you go, book nonstop flights whenever possible. You'll be more apt to be affected by bad weather if you have stop-overs at in intermediate airport. If you must stop, avoid hubs that are prone to weather delays, like Chicago O'Hare.

Try going for morning departures. If your flight is among the last night, the airline is more likely to cancel it altogether.

Sign up for flight-status notifications from your airline. They will send you emails and text updates to your phone in the event of delays and cancellations.

Never assume that every flight to your destination is being scratched because yours was. Try using TripIt Pro (cost $49 per year subscription) which will search for open seats on alternate flights. if you find one, ask your carrier to endorse your ticket to the new airline.

Pack your carry on with delays in mind which will end you up waiting in hours, or even overnight for bad weather to clear. Be prepared with stuck-in-the terminal clothing and amenities.

By knowing all what to do when storms threaten your travel plans, you can save time and money.

Save Time, Fly Faster!

For those jet setters like me, you should take some time to know the tricks if you want to save time and get to your destinations quick. Hassle-free feelings, right?
You might want to consider these tips:

Airports tend to be less crowded during Tuesdays or Wednesdays. It's also even better to leave on Saturday morning, since most business travelers fly on Fridays. Always try to catch the first flight out any day to avoid the ripple effects of delays.

Whne booking, check on smaller airports because they are not as busy and have fewer delays than the biggies.

Have your boarding passes in hand and can head to the gate if you're not checking luggage. So, it's better to print your boarding passes at home.

Avoid items that can unexpectedly cause problems such as underwire bras and hairpins as they set off metal detectors. Avoid wrapped gifts and tangled cords as well. These can save you all from the hassle of the rescan!

The Softer Side of Hong Kong

Hong Kong is home to gorgeous natural landscapes, luxurious spas and idyllic island retreats beyond its sea of gleaming glass towers.

Surprisingly, few people realize that more than 70% of Hong Kong's land mass is rural. It has beautiful natural landscape such as stunning mountains, bamboo forests, wetlands and beaches. To get to know Hong Kong's greener side,, consider hiking one of the numerous trails that crisscross the island.

There's the Peak Circle Walk on Victoria Peak accessible via the famous Peak Tram which is funicular and features unparalleled views of Victoria Harbour and the coastal areas on both sides - Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories.

Spas here feature an amazing array of treatments and therapies due to the city's unique combination of Eastern wisdom and Western-style luxury. From acupressure and reflexology to Chinese herbal body wraps and European-style massages, there's treatment for every taste and need.

Hong Kong is also a home of more than 260 outlying islands making it ideal for island hopping, a perfect way for spending an idyllic day away from the city. Visit Lantau, the Hong Kong's largest island and home to the renowned Giant Buddha and Ngong Ping cable car ride; while Cheung Chau is a car-free island that's known for its thriving fishing community. Lamma island features quaint villages, scenic trails and great seafood.

The Highlights Of China

In Beijing, you can get to tour the city's ancient "hutong" areas where you can explore beyond major monuments and modern boulevards. The bustling neighborhoods with twisting alleyways, tiny shops and historic courtyard homes reflect Beijing's as it was before its modern makeover.
The best to explore on your own are the hutongs surrounding Qianhai ("front lake") and Houhai ("rear lake").

Shopping in Shanghai
You couldn't afford to miss Shanghai's shopping scene. From the glamour of the boulevards to the colorful chaos of the markets. Along the city's most famous waterfront boulevard called the "Bund" are the designer boutiques. Wander among the groovy shops and galleries in the former French Concession; and haggle for jade, silk, pearls and ceramics at the city's many excellent markets.

Scenic Southwest China
Area surrounding the city of Yangshuo is nothing less than spectacular. Rising almost vertically from the landscape are dramatic limestone karst hills giving the entire region a mythical air. Experience the magical area by taking a boat and tour on the meandering Li River and visit some of the tiny rural villages that have lined its banks for centuries.

Have fun! ;)

Back Home Again

Post contributed by Leonard Phelps

Being from Cincinnati, I knew that I’d come back here some day to start a familyand that’s exactly what I’ve done. It’s so nice being here close to my mom and dad and they’ve been such a great support system for both of us during this time. Looking for a new house was a lot of fun – my husband and I had really different about ideas about most things with the exception of a red front door and getting adt security cincinnati. But that’s not really enough to choose a house on so it took seeing a bunch of different ones and countless babysitting hours to land us in the right house but I think we’ve done it. There’s some work to do to get it the way we want it but I think it’s going to work out once we find the right contractor. Things are looking better all the time though and I can’t wait for us to start our new life in our new home here. Being home is great!

Visit To Winterthur Museum & Garden


May 21, 2011

Another typical weekend for us, so we thought of driving going to Winterthur to see what are worth seeing in there. We are not sure what to expect, except that it must be a house museum and the garden.
We usually pass by the place everytime we go to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, so we decided why not try pay a visit?

Winterthur is a museum, garden and country estate located at Wintherthur, Delaware and now houses many of the most important collections of American decorative arts with a nearly 90,000 objects made or used between the years 1640 and 1860. This is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont, a renowned horticulturist and antique collector.

We started at the Visitor Center to get our tickets and hopped in the tram for the garden tour. The garden has a vast area and might take us a while if we will take a walk throughout the entire garden. By doing that, we won't be able to visit the museum and the galleries or some other spots we wanted to see. So, the best choice was the tram.
The tram was a short ride, afterwhich we dropped off at the house museum. We were then scheduled for a tour at 1PM. We still had 40 minutes to spare to go around while waiting. The vintage car collections caught our attention which were displayed around the area so we took photos of them. They all look interesting, lol!

The house museum tour was 2 hours, and it was quite impressive to see all of Du Pont's collections including those floral designs of kitchen silverwares, and some more arts on the wall and paint designs in most of the rooms inside the house.
The Du Pont family were really one of the wealthiest during their time! It is no joke to tour the entire house for 2 hours because of its huge size...tons of rooms and lots of stairs, LOL!

By the time the tour was over, we were starving! Our day ended with a late lunch at the cafeteria. Their food was great! ;)

Unique Spaces That Can Earn You Income!

If you consider yourself a worlwide traveler and spend time enjoying yourself a bit longer in a certain place, the most ideal thing to do is to probably look for a unique place where you can rent and stay for a while. There are a lot of sublets that you can find all around the world if only you know where. Of course, the internet so far is still the best source for a productive search.

On the other hand, this is also quite beneficial to those who have spaces to spare for those who are searching for a place to stay. The chance is much more higher if your place is close to many attractions that are frequently visited by many tourists. Of course, you also have to consider the security of the area in the neighborhood as well.

Have you checked air bnb? They are easily accessible as an online community marketplace for spaces available for lease or rent. From the website, you can instantly list your space if you are trying to lease or sublet it to others. That easy!

I can say, this is both productive for the lessee and the lessor. Whether it be an apartment, a residential home, condos or even a castle, you can find them all at air bnb.

Pack a Health Kit For Travel

Illness and injury can cut a vacation short any time, so travel experts recommend to be always be prepared for the worst. Packing a well-stocked travel health kit can be just as vital as any guidebook in a medical emergency.

Your health kit's contents depend on your destination and planned activities, but the Centers for Disease Control recommends all travelers to take a basic first-aid kit with items such as adhesive bandages, antiseptic, gauze and an ace wrap. Pakc moleskin for blisters if you're walking across Europe, and take with you water purification tablets if you're cruising along the Amazon River.

If you are into dog sledding in Alaska for example, Take plenty of common cold remedies and cough drops. And don't drink the water in Mexico unless you've packed your kit with antacids and antidiarrheal medicines. There may not be a drug store around to where you will be going so better to bring your own.

When traveling with prescribe medications, health experts advise their patients to carry them on the plane. Make copies of all prescriptions, including their generic names, should they get lost or the trip run long.

You'll Gonna Love CyberMondays!

I bet you would be familiar when many people would say "I hate Mondays." I once asked one friend of mine why she hates Mondays, and she replied it is because it is the start of the day when piled paper works have to be done. But in fairness, there are other people who love Mondays...at work. I tend to love Mondays whenever I am working in an office. It is because it is the day where I have the full charge to take care of all things that need to be done.

And I also love Mondays when there are cybermonday deals! :) I can't deny the fact that I always love to shop, and I also love deals and bargains as well. Who doesn't want discounts when they shop anyway, right?
I shop most of the time online. I actually prefer doing it than going to the store or in the mall, because whatever I need to buy online, they always have it, particularly if I shop for my own wardrobes. The sizes and styles are always perfect as much as I feel comfortable wearing them as well.

So, treat yourself a little bit when it comes to shopping. Stay home, relax and shop 'til you drop by just clicking your mouse on your PC ;). Get the nicest deal online from Dealio. I bookmarked it already.

The Queen Mary's Self-Guided & Audio Tour Guide

Here is a short tip I want to share for those who would prefer doing the self-guided tour with an audio.
I mentioned in one of my previous posts about my experience with the audio tour and unluckily, I wasn't able to finish it.

There is a little bit of a tricky part on the audio tour's instructions that I ended up getting lost and couldn't find the right spot.

On your audio instructions, you need to walk out to another location starting at stop three (3) which is located on the promenade deck.
You will need to walk to the Upper Decks for the next stop on the audio tour.

#1 Chicago Bus Service

If you are heading for a trip to Chicago, whether for a business purpose, educational field trips or just a plain pleasure trip, and going in a larger group, one of the best option to do it is through Chicago Charter Bus Rental.

If you have heard about Pontarelli Company, that is what I am referring to ;). The company offers its customers (particularly groups that consist of 14-16 people), rentals for mini buses, luxurious charter buses and limo buses that can be mostly comfortable and convenient for all group members while traveling. Just imagine the comfort of relaxing inside their charter bus, for example, which is equipped with TV's, bars and musical stereos and without being stuck at the driver's seat! I call that 100% stress-free, where you all have to do is relax and rest.

There are also limo bus appointments ideal for large executive groups that needs a transport to their own locations such as hotels and convention centers, and if you belong to a group for field trips or guided sightseeing tours, there are also services provided like corporate shuttles as well.

There are also services available for long term or short term use of limo bus shuttles if you would prefer.
In need of a service to or from the airport? That's not a problem as well because Pontarelli has staff to help you assist in every step of your way.

Saving Smart On Holiday Flights

Most airfares have been rising steadily over the past year which means you will have to pay much higher for a holiday trip back home.
Holidays are fast approaching, so the following strategies serve as a heads up if you plan to travel during the holiday season.

Know when to act by using the price-predictor tool at bing.com and check to see which direction fares on your route are heading. If up, buy it now, if not, hold out. Some airlines are also discounting during midweek. Tuesdays at 3pm EST is generally the best time to shop.

Airfare sales aren't always widely advertised and vanish fast, so the best thing to do is to sign up for email alerts through orbitz.com and smartertravel.com. You can also follow your favorite airlines at twitter as many tweet out news of discounts.

Search for flights on sites that take fees into account.Tripadvisor's fee estimator for example (tripadvisor.com/flights) lets you input your frequent-flier status, number of bags, and desired refreshments.

So, you ready for your holiday trip plan sooner??
Have a happy trip!

Easy Strategies to Score A Travel Upgrade

It's now a lot harder to get a better seat or nicer cars for no extra cash now that airlines have pared back flights, and rental car agencies have slimmed fleets.
How to improve them is something that counts:

On the Plane:

Pick your plane wisely. Those that choose Boeing 757s with first class seats have a better shot than those on an Airbus 320. Check a plane's layout at seatguru.com

The more empty seats in first, the better your chances of landing one. Try to go to the airline's website before checking-in and start looking for business-class ticket, and click view seat map.

The best day for upgrades is Saturdays. Go to your agent and say something like "If you need to bump people from coach to first, please consider me. I'm low maintenance-and my back is killing me."

At the Hotel:

Try staying at business hotels on weekends. You can get a good chance of improving your upgrade by staying Thrusday to Sunday vs. midweek.

Try using the special request box on an online reservation, call the hotel directly and talk to the desk clerk at check-in and say: "We're celebrating {your event}. Any chance of an upgrade?"

Check-in late like try arriving after 7pm when the front desk knows which rooms are left.

At The Car Counter:

If a company runs out of the vehicle class you reserved, it will likely upgrade you.

Reserve at the right time. The peak pick up times are usually Friday nights and Monday mornings which means there is less chance the car class you reserved will be available.

Search for special offers on the car agency's site, on your credit card's site or on coupon's pages such as retailmenot.com.

Your Guide To Hawaii Real Estate

It is always one of my dreams to visit Hawaii someday. There was one plan of getting there suppose to be this month for a work trip, but unfortunately, it was cancelled! :(

On the other hand, in two years time, my husband would be retiring. It must have been awesome to plan of getting a retirement home in Hawaii. I have so many reasons why I like Hawaii. First is the tropical climate. Then, the people, the beach, and the scenic coastal areas. It really fascinates me just by looking at those photos. How much more seeing them real!

For those who have thoughts of choosing Hawaii as their paradise for good, perhaps you should try Maui. I have heard exciting experiences and seen many photos that prove this is a true paradise for those who are nature lovers!
Maui Condos For Sale are available from the listings of Maui Real Estate online. These condos are mostly close to the ocean. So, just imagine how spectacular your place will be, waking up early in the morning and catching a fresh morning sea breeze. Isn't it invigorating to have that kind of life daily? :)

High Price of Car Rentals & How To Keep Your Costs Down

Car-rental rates are sky rocketing! The main reason for the rising costs are smaller rental fleets and fewer available cars means higher prices.
So, here are some tips you can do to help keep your own rental costs in check:

Rent at an off-airport location.

Know the real rate you'll be paying before you book. Local taxes, surcharges and fees can double the base rate. Be sure to ask how much those charges before hand.

Try choosing a rental company based on the price and not on loyalty program memberships if you are renting infrequently. Those loyalty programs are designed primarily to streamline the pick-up process and may not give you lower rates.

Never accept the agency's "loss damage waiver" or LDW unless you don't have any alternative. Chance is that you already are covered by your personal car insurance or through your credit card.

Any gas you leave in the tank is money in the agency's pocket, so never accept the prepaid gas option. There are gas stations usually close to the rental lots where you can fill up before you return the car.

Be sure to know when the car rental agency closes. Smaller agencies in second-and third-tier cities are not 24-hour operations, and same is true with off-airport locations in any city. You might end up returning your car with the agency closed which could mean another extra day's worth of charges.

Search for online discounts and coupons that are readily available when you look for them. Try autoslash.com which can search out those discounts for you and applies them to your rental when you book and can automatically rebooks you at the lower rate if the price drops.

Laser Skin Treatments in Miami

If you think Hollywood is the only place to go for laser treatments or reconstructive plastic surgery, you're wrong!

Skin Tightening, one of the most common procedure being done today is almost available to all clinics today. But you have to be sure they are professional and expert enough to do it for you.
Miami residents should be happy having one nearby. So, if you are one of those who want to look youthful to make you feel more confident, it would be worth a visit to see Dr. Maerck's clinic ;).

Of course, many patients would always want the best outcome, and the way they want it to be done, and one of the reasons why they have the right to choose a uniquely qualified surgeon when it comes to any aesthetic surgery.

Many skin tightening procedures are not only limited to the facial area but in some areas of the body that tend to be losing skin elasticity due to the the effects of factors such as genetics, age, weight and other factors.
Also, skin tightening can either be performed through surgery or without surgery. Perhaps, many clients would still ask medical experts for any alternative options prior to deciding on surgery. The good news is that, yes, they can tighten their skin without surgery! :)

More information can be worth checking at Dr. Maerck's clinic.

The Queen Mary

The Queen Mary is one place worth visiting when you want to go back to those days where steam ships were the quickest and most elegant way to travel.
The Queen Mary was once a magestic luxury liner and always the first choice for the elite of high society way back 1936. This year was was her first maiden voyage as a grand ocean liner including during the war years, until she finally stopped her voayge in the year 1967. Her maiden voyage in 1936 was the grandest ocean liner ever built and made her play many roles throughout her illustrious career.Many considered her the only civilized way to travel.
She was fondly called "The Grey Ghost" when she was transformed as a troopship overnight and transported more than 800,000 troops and played a vital role in every major Allied campaign.
She finally retired and was purchased by the city of Long Beach which became a Long Beach icon for more than 40 years.

Finally, settled in Long Beach as her permanent residence, it is now a site of attraction for tourists where every visitor is welcome to explore.

Queen Mary has a very rich, colorful history, a good reason why it is worth recommending to get up close with it to give you an in-depth look at the ship's past.

There are guided tours, the best way to have if you want to make sure you will be getting the most out of your visit.
There are daytime and evening tours, so whether you are interested in history art deco design or paranormal investigations and mystery about the ship, you can choose a tour package that goes with all of them.

Full exploration tours do a lot of walking so if you think your feet are tough enough to complete your visit in a day, go! :)

There are dinings on board as well, including signature dining, casual and quick eats and special dining events. Bar and lounges are also available.

The Queen Mary is also commonly used for land filmings of both television and films, photo shoots and commercials with a filming location of more than 80,000 square feet of space with 14 Art Deco salons that are uniquely decorated with murals and original paintings, wood paneling, brass and nickel silver fixture and etched leaded glass accents.

Would you believe you can book your hotel reservations aboard the Mary Queen as well?
