I always thought that the best part of planning a vacation was choosing where you were going to stay in the “down” time. It is a huge part of your trip whether you realize it or not. The place where you stay can ‘make’ or ‘break’ your vacation. Making a wrong choice can suck the life right out of you and out of your trip. The great thing about all of this?
