A place you didn’t realize you should go.
Ahhhh, do you feel it? That sense of rebirth and hope; the inkling to embrace something new. In the spring, that feeling is everywhere if we take time to notice. As the world around us begins to renew itself, what a great time for us to do the same, treating ourselves with something new and different— a vacation!
Now more than ever we may be looking for chances to see and do things we’ve never done before. We’ve been reminded that our time is precious, and we should celebrate it. Today’s Transitions spoke with Beth Chaffin, travel specialist with Unlimited Travel Consultants, who shared some unique trip ideas for those who are willing to trade in their sunscreen and beach towel for some adventure.
“A vacation refreshes our spirits, but what I think of these days is how to foster a renewed sense of hope. We’ve had a rough few years, but we can have the new adventures of our dreams. There is a lot going on, and many wonderful and unusual places to go,” Beth says. Here is another possibility:
L’Banca Albergo in Lake Arthur, Louisiana
Tucked into the Louisiana countryside is L’Banca Albergo (The Bank Hotel) where the motto is May All Who Enter as Guests Leave as Friends. Named for its original purpose, this historic site was once a bank. Now a boutique hotel with eight luxury suites, L’Banca offers a family-friendly and welcoming experience. Just a quick walk from the hotel brings you to a sandy beach, complete with playgrounds and picnic areas. Visitors can choose from area highlights such as the Bayou Rum Distillery, Lake Charles, the Tupper Museum, and authentic southern cuisine. For the more adventurous traveler, there is even the chance to hold a baby alligator! labankhotel.com
