Submitted by: Karen M.
Destination: Antelope Canyon – Page, AZ
Best deal found: Reserved the trip for high noon and got the photography tour guide and paid for a regular tour. Antelope Canyons are a must see at high noon when the light is perfect for photographs. This is located on an Indian Reservation and an Indian guide gives the history of these canyons as well as the area. A must see on your “bucket list”.

Destination: Italy
Best deal found: De Palma Hotel in Monterosso. We paid 42 Euro per night(2) for a clean and quiet hotel room with a view. We were only 1 block off the main thoroughfare with only minutes to the train station. We spoke with many other tourists who paid upwards of 3 times as much for less accesibility. By the way we were given breakfast vouchers for the 2 mornings that offered the best breakfast we had all vacation.

Destination: Saint Martin
Best deal found:  French restaurants in Grand Case where a Euro equals a Dollar.

Submitted by:  Tommy H.
Destination: Fort Lauderdale, FL
Best deal found:  After attending my cousin’s wedding in Fort Lauderdale, I took one day to drive to the Everglades National Park and had a close encounter with one of the natives. The best deal on the trip was the $225 round-trip, direct flight on Southwest Airlines out of Oakland to FLL. One restaurant of note is Le Tub in Dania Beach, which has the largest hamburger I’ve ever eaten (3/4 lb.?). They call it Le Tub because of the bathtubs and toilets that make up the scenery in all corners of the restaurant. P.S. Bring cash (no cc or dc accepted!).
