Legoland Florida Hotel Review

I have a brand new hotel review for you all today!

Yes, it's in Florida.

No, it's not at Disney World.

Any guesses?

We're off to LEGOLAND Florida to check into the brand new Legoland Florida Hotel.

It looks like it's built out of Lego, and there's a giant dragon out front.

Plus there are life-size minifigures.  And not just any minifigs - that's Johnny Thunder...he's apparently a Lego celebrity from back in the day...

The Legoland Hotel opened this past May 2015 - we actually stayed there just a few days after the Grand Opening!

Empire State Building with Pro Tips | NYC Trip Report

I'll give you one guess where today's blog post is taking us...

We're off to see New York City from above!

Becky and I are taking you to the top of the Empire State Building.

When you read reviews online, you'll hear that it's very touristy and has extremely long lines and that there are other high rises in NYC where you can get a good view without the high price tag on the ticket.  But then again, this is the Empire State Building.  It's so iconic - my cousin and I were excited to experience it ourselves. :)

Can I get an ALOOOOHA?
