Top 3 Scuba Destinations

June 16, 2014


One of the best and most amazing perks of choosing a beach destination is the possibility of scuba diving and snorkeling. Imagine submerging yourself in a world unlike anything you have ever experienced where the water is crystal clear, schools of fish swarm around you, and the discovery of marine life is unforgettable. All of this is 100% possible in our Top 3 Scuba picks for this summer: Destin, FL, Maui and Kauai, HI, and St. Martin/Sint Maarten, Caribbean. Explore natural limestone ridges on the Emerald Coast in Destin, take a twilight dive in an old volcanic crater in Hawaii, and find shipwrecks (both purposefully and accidentally) in St. Martin/Sint Maarten.

Top Vacation Homes for Summer Cookouts

June 12, 2014


Picture this: you are on vacation, relaxing and catching up on some most needed rest. It has been a perfect day so far filled with hiking, outdoor activities, maybe even some swimming. But alas, it is now time for dinner so naturally, like most vacationers, you pack up the group and head to town to check out one of the many recommended restaurants. Unfortunately, it’s summer season which means every restaurant is packed and the waits are almost unbearable to your hungry stomach. Or perhaps you are just a family on  a budget, taking a small vacation without breaking the bank at all the delicious (yet very expensive) restaurants. So why not stay in for the night and have a cookout. Put on some good tunes, open up a pack of beer, and fire up that grill! We’ve compiled a list of our favorite 9 locations, all with homes available that have great outdoor decks for barbecues.

Experience Summer in Breckenridge

June 11, 2014


At VacationRoost, we absolutely love Breckenridge and the many vacation opportunities they have to offer. Although its usually associated with being the perfect winter ski village, Breckenridge is also an outdoor enthusiasts dreams in the summer season. Breck is full of pristine trails for biking and hiking, hidden goldmines available for touring, skylines waiting to be viewed from a hot air ballon, and so much more! If you book during the right times, you will get to experience the Summer Beer Festival on July 26 or Breckenridge’s own rendition of Oktoberfest in mid September. The possibilities really are endless here, so enjoy a cold beer at 9,600 feet and GO BRECK!

Experience Kaua’i this Summer

June 3, 2014


One of the most tranquil (and arguably the prettiest) of the Hawaiian Islands, Kauai is an outdoors-lover’s paradise, with pristine beaches, working farms, and numerous eco-conservation programs in place. On our travels, we chose Kauai for the abundance of hiking, kayaking, and wildlife viewing.

Kauai’s East Coast is home to the largest urban area, Wailua. Visitors arrive via Lihue Airport, and stay for the beaches of the Coconut Coast (so named for the numerous coconut groves). Surfers swarm to Kealia Beach in this region, and great snorkeling for first-timers can be found.

The North Shore of Kauai is home to Hanalei Forest Reserve (additional reserves are located in the interior of the island) and the town of Kilauea. Quiet and beautiful, the North Shore is dotted by fresh farm stands, shaved ice stations, and hiking trails. Visitors find fewer commercial offerings here, and more wildlife.

The sunnier South Shore is home to Poipu Beach Park, once named ‘America’s Best Beach’. Humpback whales agree: visitors see them here frequently. The west coast of the island commemorates James Cook, who landed in Hawaii at Waimea Bay in 1778. Art loves will want to make the west side their home base, and nature lovers won’t want to miss Waimea Canyon.
