Make sure that the destination you choose will have plenty to offer for anyone, be it shopping opportunities, spas, restaurants or beaches depending on each family member’s individual expectations.

Winter Olympics 2014 Sochi

I hear it all the time. “Women don’t like sports”. I don’t know who came up with this but it’s definitely not true. My girlfriend Jennifer is the best example. Nothing can be more fun than going to the game with her and let me tell you she’s not rooting for the Cubs any less than I do.

At home we have two big screen TVs because SHE¬†insisted for an extra one so she doesn’t miss any games due to a movie session on the other set. It was her idea, not mine.

Right now we’re having full sports coverage here in our home due to the Olympics in Sochi. Come here and you’ll likely find one set tuned for the latest events over in Russia while the leisure room will in all likelihood feature a local ball game here in the Chicago area.

Well, you obviously already guessed it, but we’re two huge sports buffs and this goes beyond baseball or watching the Olympics. If you want to know more, simply follow out blog to keep up-to-date with sports news nationally and internationally.
