Continuing with the same topic from yesterday about the February issue of Ladies' Home Journal Magazine article...How to Stay Fit- A Season Guide to Incredibly Fun Trips for the Active Female are the Spring trips they suggest:1- Sailing School on Captiva Island, Florida- The offshore Sailing School has been teaching rookie sailors the ropes for more than 30 years. Captiva Island is directly off Florida's gulf coast, and is an easy drive for Fort Myers. The school is part of the family-friendly South Seas Island Resort. Rooms are $249 a night and up; sailing classes start at $150 for a two-hour session.
2- Hiking in Scottsdale, Arizona- The desert and hills of Scottsdale are a hiker's paradise- take it from me- I've been with my parents! The best time to go is in the Spring when temperatures are mild. Scottsdale is famous for its dry, clear weather and luxe spas and golf resorts, but I suggest planning a side trip to Sedona (one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.) to see the famous red-rock formations. The Boulders Resort is built among massive ancient rocks and is where the magazine suggests staying. Rooms start at $179 a night in April.

  1. Absolutely love Sedona. Went there once as my husbands brother & sister live not far from Phoenix in a town called Surprise. We also visited Phoenix.

    On another note. My husband & I don't get to travel a lot, but did get to San Antonio and went to an awesome place called the River Walk. It had everything you wanted restaurants, bars, ice cream, souvenir shops and hotels all situated around by a little river. My husband & the husband of the couple we were with found a little Irish pub where you threw your peanut shells on the floor while you were drinking your Guiness and listening to a guy playing the piano. You could take a boat ride with a guide who talked about the highlights. We went in December when all the lights were up for Christmas & it looked great. Don't go in January as they empty the water & refill it with fresh water. I would definetly go back there.
