Washington DC
Written By: Sean Rox
Washington DC      Welcome to Washington DC!  This year Cassandra and I spent some time during the Holidays in the festive metropolis of our nation’s capitol.  It would take weeks to see everything this dynamic city has to offer.  We covered as much ground as possible during our two night stay.  We wanted to make sure we had a great location so we could walk to many of the main attractions.  We decided on the W  Hotel on 15th St.   Known as the  Washington Hotel since 1918, this iconic building was bought by  Starwood Resorts in 2008.   The closest hotel to the White House, the Starwood is home to the iconic rooftop POV bar that offers amazing panoramic views of the U.S. Treasury, White House and Executive Building.  We were overjoyed with our 9th floor suite that looked out over the National Mall and the Washington Monument.     Our first stop was to get some lunch at Old Ebbit Grill.  Es...

Kansas City   Welcome to Kansas City!  This year’s annual father/son road trip was a visit to Kaufmann stadium to see how the Nationals stacked up against the 2015 World Series champs.  After a three-hour flight from Philly, we arrived in KC.  Kansas City straddles the states of Kansas & Missouri.  The city center, airport, major attractions and stadiums are all on the Missouri side.  We booked a suite at the Intercontinental hotel overlooking the Country Club Plaza.  The Plaza is a trendy  shopping & restaurant  district that is decorated by beautiful fountain-lined piazzas.  Kansas City has more than 200 public fountains which is second only to Rome.  Picturesque Brush Creek winds around the Plaza and is passable by a series of pedestrian bridges.   Upon arrival we made our way to the stadium for the Nats Monday night match-up with the Royals.  We sprung for tickets behind home plate that included access to the Crow...

Disney World         Welcome to Disney World! Located in Orlando Florida, Disney World is known   as the “Happiest place on Earth”.  For Cassandra’s 40th birthday I knew I had to come up with something huge.  Since she was a little girl in England she’s always wanted to meet Mickey Mouse. Cassandra took me to an amusement park in Australia on my 30th b-day so I could feel like a kid again and I wanted to return the favor. This March her dreams came true with a surprise trip to the Magic Kingdom!     We stayed at Disney’s Contemporary Hotel and enjoyed a room with a balcony overlooking the Magic Kingdom.  The contemporary is one of three Disney resorts with access to the monorail.  The monorail is the quickest and most convenient way to travel between the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, the Contemporary, the Grand Floridian and the Polynesian Village resort.  It literally stops inside the 4th floor of the Contempor...
