You know you can’t let summer end without another trip to the beach, or at least one planned. Here are a few end-of-summer travel deals to check out.
My first visit ever to the Caribbean was to Grand Cayman. Before that visit, I didn’t really believe ocean water could be that gorgeous color. The other things I learned on that trip were 1) Pregnant women can swell up when they go down in submarines. 2) They drive on the opposite side of the road, something our host would sometimes forget. 3) Going on a pirate ship excursion is just as hokey as it sounds.
Check it out for yourself. Not the pirate excursion – just the visit to Grand Cayman. Not to sound all QVC-ish, but you gotta act now on this one. Book a stay at Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort by August 1 and save from 10-25% on your stay. The longer you stay, the more you save. Every one of this resort’s 295 rooms and suites has a private balcony. The offer is good for stays until December 24, and blackout dates may apply. (Make sure to use the code D3Q).

Ah, St. Augustine. My memories of my first visit here include a storm barreling in, staying in a hotel where we were the only ones without tattoos, and a fight over hush puppies at dinner. I need to make a return visit during a non-storm time and get my own serving of hush puppies.
