How We Do It: Finding Great Places To Stay On Vacation
Posted By David Porter On October 21, 2011 @ 2:49 pm In Travel Experience | Comments Disabled
We have a systematic process that we use to cull out beautiful properties, and we’re happy to share it with you. However, I’d be remiss if I didn’t simply instruct such inquirers to simply follow our The Roaming Boomers  website.
On the other hand, we understand that we can’t be everywhere in the world, so here is the system that we use.
Before I begin, there is one caveat I should mention; we are predominantly a luxury travel website. Nonetheless, I’m confident that anyone will find the perfect vacation resort using our system.
If, however, you find a place in this list that is just beyond your reach financially, you might take a peek at 5 Star Resorts on a 3 Star Budget .
OK. Let’s begin!
Besides this list, we also regularly visit local Convention & Visitor Bureau websites, local travel bloggers, as well as the various websites of interesting properties.
When we’re choosing a property, the #1 thing we are looking for is unparalleled experience. Experience can come in the form of luxury, uniqueness, or even staying in a yurt (our yurt video )!
Well, there you have it. I promise, if you spend a little time clicking through all these links, you are certain to find a destination property to make your heart go pitter-pat. We certainly have!
