Athens was the final stop on a 10-day European cruise aboard Carnival’s new ship, Vista, … Continue reading Pretty Places Friday – We Bike Athens

Its sand, sun and warm surf are all popular with swimmers and friendly sea turtles. A family could easily spend days along Ka’anapali Beach, either without a set plan or packed chock-full of activities from sunup to sundown.
