Monthly Archives: November 2012
Every couple needs to get away and spend some time alone together. Whether you have been married for 40 years or are just settling in as man and wife, a healthy relationship will only get better if you take a romantic vacation, even if it is just for a couple of days.
November is National Philathropy Month and Select Registry inns and B&Bs across North America are doing their part in a variety of different ways.
The following inns and B&Bs are opening their doors to active and retired military personnel and veterans, plus a guest, during this year’s B&Bs for Vets campaign sponsored by the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII). Service men and women will enjoy a free night and experience the Select Registry difference on Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11, 2012. It’s the innkeepers’ way of saying thank you for their service to our country.
The Verandas in Wilmington, North Carolina is a beautiful antebellum Victorian Italianate mansion that was built in 1854.

The rooms are large with comfortable beds and other furniture, original artwork and convenient, luxurious bathrooms.

There is no better way to learn about our nation’s past, its government, and its culture than taking a vacation to the District of Columbia. This travel destination is one of the most popular in the country, and visitors can choose to stay at one of the many fine bed and breakfast lodgings in and around Washington, DC.
Summer is a particularly good season for visiting the nation’s capital, with pleasant weather and plenty of sunshine. Walking tours near the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam War memorial are informational as well as relaxing, and the Smithsonian Institute is a must for all visitors.
