Last Friday, May 24th, 2013 SeaWorld Orlando opened their largest attraction expansion to date - Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. The expanded realm features a new cafe, a huge penguin-themed gift shop, an educational wall, a penguin habitat, and a new family-friendly ride. I had the opportunity to check it out in person last week, and think it's a great addition to an already wonderful park.

Given the choice of hotel chains for my business trips, I'll usually choose a Westin. Their Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath make for such a relaxing stay. Last month, as part of the TMS Family Travel Conference, I stayed at the Westin Crown Center Kansas City, which is a great hotel for a Kansas City family vacation.

Admittedly, I don't get to travel to the midwest as much as I'd like to. I've always enjoyed my trips there - there are so many fantastic museums, family attractions, and other things to do. A few weeks ago, as part of the TMS Family Travel Conference, I had the opportunity to travel to Kansas City, MO. Throughout the conference weekend, I also was able to experience some of the best things to do with kids in Kansas City, MO.

As someone who very frequently books hotel stays, I know that prices can fluctuate and vary. There are so many different hotel booking sites that claim to get the best rates, but it can be difficult to know which one is really the best for preferred hotels and dates. At Travel Media Showcase a few weeks ago, I learned about a hotel price comparison website that compares data from 205+ websites to show you where you can get the best deal.
