Natalie's Travel Tips for Denver

What are the best places to eat and drink in Denver?

There were so many it is hard to choose! My favorite breakfast spot was Denver Biscuit Company while for lunch / dinner I really enjoyed Linger and Breckenridge Brewing. I love these places because they were authentically unique to the greater Denver area and delivered some delicious food and drinks options.

Garden of the Gods & Red Rocks Amphitheater! These places were arguably some of the most incredible places that I had ever been to. The scenery was unmatched at both of these spots and the views were breathtaking.

Wear your sunscreen, hydrate your skin, and drink lots of water. The altitude change is no joke and the last thing you want is not to feel your best on your vacation!

Kellie's Travel Tips for Jackson Hole

What are the best places to eat and drink in Jackson Hole?

We loved the Cowboy Coffee Co. and Moo's Gourmet Ice Cream on the Town Square in Jackson. The Cowboy Coffee Co. has great treats along with amazing coffee! I had the Huckleberry Mudpot (espresso, white chocolate, and huckleberry) and it was delicious! We made several stops for coffee during our stay in Jackson. Moo's Gourmet Ice Cream had such unique flavors to choose from. My husband and I loved our mid-day ice cream cones!

What are the best things to do in Jackson Hole?

We really enjoyed our scenic raft tour down the Snake River. There are a variety of rafting companies to choose from in Jackson, but we went with Teton Scenic Floats & Fly Fishing. We met our guide in Wilson and spent about 2.5 hours on the river. It was such a beautiful and fun trip!

What is the best tip for celebrating your anniversary in Jackson Hole?

Be sure to book a Flytographer photoshoot with Madison! We will forever cherish the photos we received. I would also highly recommend planning for a couple of days in both Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Park. We were limited on time and felt rushed during our trips to the parks. One day in each park is doable, but they will be very long days. Soak it all in and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife!

Teresa's Travel Tips for Maui

What are the best places to eat and drink in Maui?

Cafe O'Lei Millhouse - the scenery is amazing since it is in a plantation Mama's Fish House - pricey but the setting on the beach and services makes it worth it Maui Brewing Company - very nice with an inside/outside patio - reasonable prices and large portions

What are the best things to do in Maui?

Surf Shack group surfing lessons - great with kids who were 5 and 7 years old, they were able to surf on their very first try, the water is shallow for them so it is safe as well (suggested the 8am surfing lesson) Northshore Zipline - first time finding a zip lining place that takes kids 5 and up, they are used to working with very young kids Haleakala Summit - Leleiwi trail very kid friendly an offers amazing views, we did not go during sunrise/sunset but it was still a must to visit Road to Hana for young kids - twin falls, Waikamoi falls, Garden of Eden (admission price but worth it)

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Maui?

Maui is very kid friendly. Almost every restaurant including Mama's Fish House had a kid's menu.

Leilani's on the Beach. Great location and good food. Not too expensive . Can go hang out on the beach afterwards.

Snorkeling with The Magic Merman. They were a fantastic company and was the best snorkel trip we've done thus far.

We always do a good mix of beach and pool time and do a snorkel trip. Leilani's and Fleetwoods both are great restaurants with kids. Leoda's pies and ululani's for shave ice are the best. The ancient fishpond in Kihei is a good place for little kids because there are no waves.
