One of the things I’m looking forward to when we get back to America is to see more of my country. When we last lived in Georgia we did our fair share of traveling, but most of that included trips to Atlanta or Savannah—two of my favorite cities that I plan on seeing much more of, but we decided we’re going to venture out more. It’s the travel itch embedded in me, but I get just as giddy driving into different states as I do stepping into a new country.
So this time we’re making a new America Bucket List of places we
want to go while we’re stationed in Georgia. Some of these places we’ve
been to before (either together or separately) and some will be new, but I’m
excited to experience more of the United States. I’m especially excited about traveling and showing our little one this wonderful country. If you have any travel suggestions, I’d love to hear them! I’ll update my wanderlust list once we get settled and actually hash out some ideas, but here’s what I have so far off the top of my head:
Callaway Gardens (a favorite spot of ours)
Blue Ridge Mountains

In Europe, I had booking a place to stay down to an art; with the exception of a few chains, if you need a place to rest your head you’re looking at an independent hotel, B&B, apartment, or a vacation rentals. No matter where we stayed, I had the same requirements: great reviews, decent price, clean, a unique place with character, good customer service, and in the right location. I fully intend on keeping the same standards when traveling around America. I like staying at B&Bs and other vacation rental places, because they offer something a little more than just your average hotel.
It’s convenient, then, that I just learned about Wyndham Vacation Rentals, since they offer the best of both worlds: the space and comfort of home with the conveniences and
amenities of a hotel. They all come with my much-needed Wi-Fi, and include housekeeping—when I’m on vacation I don’t want to clean up after myself—shuttle
services and a concierge desk.
A few other perks of staying in a vacation rental: they come with fully-equipped kitchens (I love picking up local, in-season foods and cooking them at “home.” Talk about a great way to save money while on vacation), washer and dryers, and multiple bedrooms so you can gather your favorite friends or family and vacation together (another way to save money since you can all split the price).

I seriously urge you to stray from your usual big-chain hotel this summer and reap the benefits of staying in a vacation rental. July, conveniently enough, is National Vacation Rental Month (who knew?!) and Wyndham Vacation Rentals is offering 35 percent off on bookings made during this month.
Looking for a Wyndham Vacation Rental property near you? You can pick from a private home, resort condo or villas in sunny, beach destinations (perfect for summer) such as Florida, South Carolina, Delaware, and Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Or, stay in a condo or luxury cabin in the mountainous Colorado, Utah, Tennessee, or Idaho.
One last thing that I appreciate as a traveler: Wyndham Vacation Rentals believes every traveler is entitled to certain expectations, saying “you have the ‘right’ to expect some fundamental standards no matter what type of vacation rental you choose.” Their Vacation Rental Bill of Rights® ensures peace of mind. When booking with them, they pledge professional, quality standards (vetted rentals with accurate images and detailed descriptions of each property), comprehensive customer service before, during, and after your stay, and real-time payment and bookings.
I already have my eyes set on a handful of their properties in Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina!
