Sonoma

For this post, I am going to be concentrating on the BOGO Free Sonoma wine tastings that are located near STS airport. So, if you're flying into STS airport and get in early enough, you could be wine tasting in less than 15 minutes. On our first day, we landed at STS airport around 11:30 a.m. and were planning on meeting our friends around noon. That meant we had enough time to fit in two

For this particular day, we decided to head a little west of Santa Rosa and try out the Sonoma wines over there. We started out at Red Car Wine Co., then Fog Crest Vineyard, and ended the day at Balletto Vineyards. All three wineries are super close to each other so it was nice to not feel rushed to make it to the next winery. But to be honest, we were still late to two

If you don't already know about the Sonoma wine tasting Visa benefit, make sure you read this post first! On this day, we decided to head north of Santa Rosa towards the Healdsburg area. Most of the Visa Sonoma Wine Tasting Benefit wineries are around Healdsburg so you have a lot of places to chose from. Here's a map I made so you can visually see where all the wineries are. We chose these three

If you are a wine lover like me, then this Buy One Get One Free Wine Tasting deal is definitely for you! My friends and I decided to spend the long Memorial Day Weekend out in Sonoma to do some wine tasting. Sonoma is just west of the famous Napa Valley and has become one of my favorite places to visit in the past few years. Even though I love Napa Valley, it's just gotten

To make things easier for everyone, I've taken screenshots of all the myVEGAS rewards calendars from June 2021 to September 2021. These calendars are for free hotel stays if you play the myVEGAS games. The availability does change so make sure you check the calendar again once you've redeemed your award. You should see an email from the game with a link that says "Click to Redeem." Click on the link and it should take

Last month, my boyfriend and I decided to redeem our myVEGAS loyalty points for a free two-night stay at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. If you are not familiar with the myVEGAS app/game, I’ve made a very detailed blog post about it here if you want to learn how to get free rooms yourself. It’s a great way to earn free hotel nights at MGM properties without having to spend any money. It just takes

When the myVEGAS app first came out, I believe it was just a Facebook game, and then came the mobile slot machine version. They advertised that you could get comped Las Vegas hotel rooms just by playing this game. I literally thought there was no way this could be true, especially on a free app. The only way I've ever heard of getting free rooms in Vegas was by spending a lot of money on

When we originally visited Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park earlier this year, I had every intention of trying out sandboarding for the first time. Since I love snowboarding so much, I thought maybe sandboarding would be just as fun. Unfortunately, we got to the park later than expected due to some last-minute changes so we ended up just taking pictures around the sand dunes. If you are planning on visiting, the big thing that

We only had an afternoon to visit Valley of Fire State Park so we decided to use our time wisely and just go straight to the Fire Wave. Valley of Fire State Park is located about an hour north of Las Vegas, Nevada by car. The Fire Wave is famous because of the way the sandstone is made up of different layers of red, pink, and white sediment that resembles an ocean wave. Most people

I recently did a quick trip to Las Vegas and had booked a room at the MGM Grand using the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection website portal. I have found that there are three Las Vegas hotels on the Chase LHRC's website that are consistently priced below $100 during the weekdays: Park MGM, Mandalay Bay, and MGM Grand. I've written reviews on the Park MGM and Mandalay Bay, so I'm excited to finish off
