NOVA SCOTIA GAY FRIENDLY B&B – RELAX & REJUVENATE WITH US

Harbourview Inn lies in Smith’s Cove, Nova Scotia. Our Nova Scotia Gay Friendly B&B inn sits where the Valley meets the Bay. Our inn surveys the Annapolis Basin, overlooking the Digby Gut where two of the area’s best known tourist regions meet – the Annapolis Valley and the Fundy Shore. 

Nestled between two parallel mountain ranges on the Western side of the province, the Annapolis Valley is one of the most beautiful regions in Nova Scotia. It is famous for its wineries, orchards and for its rich history. Its waters flow into the Annapolis Basin where they join with the great Bay of Fundy, home of the world’s highest tides, and breeding ground to a rich variety of whales, dolphins and other aquatic species. 

Come to Harbourview Inn to rejuvenate. Enjoy warm hospitality in a tranquil atmosphere, surrounded by flowers and wide stretches of lawn. Relax at the swimming pool, enjoy a game of tennis, walk along our tree-lined trails, or take a stroll on the beach.

Florida Keys Kayaking Adventure – 2TravelDads

Florida Keys Kayaking - The Globetrotter Guys

Florida Keys Kayaking was one of our favorite parts of our road trip from Miami to Key West (mmm, key lime pie!). The best places to kayak in Southern Florida are spread out between the many islands, and they aren’t all where you’d expect. This is our guide to kayaking with kids in the Florida Keys, and any of these spots are great as an adult too.

As we go through the many kayaking spots in the Keys, you’ll see that some of the launch sites are in state parks and others are public access via beaches or boat ramps. Wherever you’re putting in, and whether it’s a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard, always be aware of wildlife, underwater obstacles, and other boats. Remember, safety first in all things if you want to have an amazing Caribbean vacation!

Best Places for Florida Keys Kayaking

Kayaking through the backcountry waters of the Keys, and you’ll see one of the world’s most diverse marine life ecosystems. The quiet, shallow backwater region of flats and mangrove islands has inspired many naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts to combine environmental tourism with the sport of sea kayaking. The opportunity to explore such serene, untouched areas is very special.

Hiking Palm Springs, California – 2TravelDads

Hiking Palm Springs - 2TravelDads

We love to find places that everybody talks about but nobody knows the cool stuff you can do there.  One such place is Palm Springs, California.  I mean, everybody goes there for a nice weekend or a relaxing vacation, but besides golf, gay bars and swimming pools, what is there?  The ACTUAL Palm Springs!! Agua Caliente Indian Canyons is the reason for the name, and hiking here is awesome!

Have you been to Palm Springs and done the oasis hikes at Indian Canyons or out at the Coachella Preserve and know what we’re talking about?  Been thinking about a visit maybe but didn’t know what to do beyond golf and shopping?  Well, let us give you some motivation to make a weekend trip out of it or at least get you away from the pool for a few hours – try hiking Palm Springs!

Visiting Palm Springs and the Indian Canyons

A two hour drive from Los Angeles, Orange County or San Diego, PS lies to the east of the coastal cities.  You’ll have to pass through Riverside or Ontario, so plan for city traffic on your drive… or you can just take a short flight from any of the Southern California airports.  Actually, most West Coast airports have direct flights into town.

Once you’re in town, drive right through to the end and follow the signs for Agua Caliente Indian Canyons. After about ten minutes you’ll be at the park entrance. Pay your fee and pick where you’d like to begin, then enjoy hiking Palm Springs and all its glory.
