If you’re looking for something fun to do for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve this year, I’d like to suggest a weekend getaway to New York City. You won’t believe all of the exciting events the city has lined up for the end of year holidays! Check them out below:

The Macy’s Day Parade and Balloon Inflation Parties

You’ve probably seen the Macy’s Day Parade on television from home, but imagine seeing those amazing large balloons and all of the excitement live, in person. I’ve even got an extra special opportunity available for you to see how the parade comes together! You can watch these massive balloons get inflated and get some photo opps that aren’t always available to the general public. And, there are VIP parade viewing parties available as well.

Girlfriends | Ingenious Travel

Going on a vacation with your girlfriends is about so much more than just having fun. It’s about escaping daily responsibilities. It’s about the uninterrupted conversations and just doing what makes you happy. It’s about bonding in a place away from home to create memories that will last you all a lifetime. It’s about sisterhood! Planning a getaway with your girlfriends can be as simple or as extravagant as you want. Should you be thinking about going away with your closest besties, here are some tips that may help you along the way:

Begin by picking a destination: You all must agree on a place to go. You can research the most famous destinations online, or you can get together and simply discuss where you all would like to go. Make a case for your choice destination and if you can’t agree on the exact destination, at least discuss the elements you want out of the trip. Now might also be a good time to get your travel agent at Ingenious Travel involved because we might have an idea for you that fits your time, budget and meets all of your needs.

Book flights that arrive at the same time, but if possible book the same flight: In the event you’ll each be traveling from different places, at least try to arrive around the same time so you can share transportation to your hotel. Call us to coordinate your travel times and we can either get you all on the same flight if you’re traveling together, or if you’re traveling separately we can arrange those accommodations.

Exotic Travevl | Ingenious TravelAn exotic vacation means different things to different people. For some, it means a trip to a hot destination like Tahiti or the Seychelles. For others, it’s an adventure trip with nonstop thrills like sky diving and riding an ATV off the coast of Maui. An exotic vacation may entail lots of different and exciting activities that you would not have the chance to enjoy otherwise, but regardless of what you’re doing and where you’re going there are definitely some things you can do to make your exotic travel experience an easier one.

First and foremost, hire Ingenious Travel! When you hire a travel agent to handle all of your travel needs, your trip instantly becomes much more exciting and easier to plan because all of the legwork is handled for you! We can come up with an itinerary that suits your needs perfectly, and we can help you stay within your budget.

Second, figure out what exotic means to you. Sometimes answering the question of what the best places and activities of a given destination can prove difficult, and varies from person to person. One person might want to climb scenic peaks by morning, look for sea turtle eggs on the beach at lunch and go on a zip line tour in the afternoon. This may be great for them, but what if you would prefer something not quite so strenuous or perhaps a little cheaper? To know your trip goals ahead of time and the goals of your travel companions will better help you design the perfect trip.

Don’t go in blindly. By this I mean don’t just choose a destination based on a brochure. Ask us, your travel agents about the areas you are considering. We can tell you about guided tours, historic sites, and about areas that you otherwise would not have a chance to see and experience.

Northern Lights | Ingenious TravelIf you have only marveled at the many stunning pictures captured of the great Northern Lights but have always wanted to experience it first hand, it may be time to start planning your trip. Though the overall visibility of the lights tends to shift from time to time, there are a handful of consistently great places to experience them. Consider heading to these following destinations and watch as this natural wonder appears before your eyes…

Jokulsarlon – Iceland

Although Iceland has dozens of fantastic spots to get a view of the Northern Lights, near the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is said to be the absolute best of them all. Being within the Arctic Circle will allow you to gain the best chance of a clear sky and once the lights hit the icebergs that cover the lagoon, you are in for an experience of a lifetime. So, make your way to Iceland and head about 250 kilometers outside of Reyjavik and get ready for a spectacular show.

Fairbanks – Alaska

Often referred to as undoubtedly the best place within the United States to capture a great glimpse of the Northern Lights, Fairbanks, Alaska makes for an incredible trip. One of the best pieces of advice if you do decide to head this way is to view them whilst in a hot spring. Though this may seem odd, it will help to alleviate both the cold and fatigue onsets that many travelers get while on the journey. Head to Chena Resort and Manly Hot Springs for the best experience.

Machu Picchu | Ingenious TravelIf you are hoping to head to the beautiful Incan ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, there are definitely some things to know before your flight takes off. From what to pack to what to do and where to stay while there, it is always best to know your game plan before arriving. Consider these following suggestions and tips in order to make the most of your time visiting Machu Picchu…

 

When To Go

Not sure what time of the year is the best to make your way there? For those who do not mind the crowds and have a more flexible work schedule in the summer, July through August is your best bet. However, if you want a less crowded experience (though not guaranteed) October through April would be the other way to go. Just be prepared for the rainy season if you do decide on a date between those two months.

Falconry in Ireland | Igenious TravelIf you have always been interested in the sport of Falconry – especially that which goes on in Ireland – or if you have heard of it but not quite sure what it entails, then the following information should help to clear things up.

What is Falconry?

The dictionary describes Falconry as, “the sport of hunting with falcons, hawks, eagles, etc. or the art of training hawks to hunt”. In other words, an individual (Falconer) pairs up with a type of bird mentioned just before in order to hunt together. Another definition defines it as, “the art or sport of taking wild quarry in its natural state or habitat using trained hawks or falcons”.

The History

Falconry is thought to have originated in the east, most likely in Korea and around the time of 2,000 B.C. It then spread throughout China and Japan before the sport caught on in parts of Persia and eventually made its way to Medieval Europe.

Today, it is considered to be the fastest growing country pursuit in both Europe and North America. In Ireland, it not only has a long and unique history but it is also thriving in today’s society.
