 Welcome to Bert T. Simons’ personal vacation site.


I use this site to get ideas where to go on our next adventure. I like the Quick Link design for the resources and information.         

When planning a trip or vacation, it is always a good idea to draft an itinerary or a list of places you want to visit. You do not necessarily have to follow what is on such, just use it as a guide.

Going places and playing it by ear, most of the time, is not always the best idea, unless you are going to Las Vegas/Reno/Laughlin to gamble. On the other hand, if you are going to the Hawaiian Islands, you will want to make a list of places you want to visit. You might not get a chance to visit them all the first time, but at least you have an idea what you want to accomplish.

Keep in mind that many destinations may have more attractions than one thinks. I like to go on and enter the city and state where my travels will take me. Look in the general vicinity and see what the area may have to offer. It doesn’t take that long and it is a good source of information if you don’t want to spend most of the day, say in the casino. Another good site for ideas is
