Things that disqualify you from getting a passport. – With travel starting to open up again, it’s time to make sure that your passport is ready to go. If you don’t have a passport, watch out for these behaviors that could keep you from getting one. And, if you have Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, make sure that you update your membership with your new passport information.

These National Parks Will Require Reservations This Summer. – Our National Parks are one of our most valuable treasures and the perfect spot for a family vacation. With surging demand, you can’t just show up and expect to enter though. Many National Parks, like Yosemite, Zion, and Glacier, are now requiring reservations if you want to visit. Make your reservations now so you won’t be disappointed.

The Best Whale Watching Destinations in the U.S. – These majestic beasts of the sea are incredible to watch. These are the 10-best places to go whale watching in Hawaii and along both coasts of the U.S. Have you been to any of these places? I’ve visited Monterey, California, and it is so beautiful there. Plus, they have one of the best aquariums in the U.S.

U.S. Airlines May Start Weighing Passengers At The Gate. – This is going to get awkward really quickly for a lot of people. And it’s a total invasion of privacy of the passengers. Would you be ok with this?

Southwest Airlines Hawaii Expansion. – I love that more airports will have direct flights to Hawaii on Southwest. This gives people, like me, who live on the East Coast more options to get to Hawaii. And more options generally leads to lower prices and more flexibility on departure times.
