The Serenity of Cape May


There’s nothing like enjoying the beach in the off season, no crowds, plenty of vacancies and a real sense of serentity. We checked into the seaside hotel, Icona Cape May in mid September and loved the beauty of the hotel. Icona is decorated in cool crisp whites and blue with spacious rooms. The hotel is laid back and friendly and is directly across the street from the beach.

Absolutely Fabulous, London

On our recent trip to London we visited the top tourist attractions, stayed at the fabulous 45 Park Lane and dined at Wolfgang Puck’s only restaurant outside of the US, CUT. The Dorchester Collection’s 45 Park Lane did not disappoint. Located within walking distance to the top London sites and across from Hyde Park, we enjoyed leisurely strolls through many of London’s beautiful gardens.
