Animal Paradise: The Best Hotels for Animal Lovers

If you’re an animal lover, chances are you can’t go a single week without a cuddle from a furry friend. While going on vacation with your pet may not be for everyone, for some people, it’s the best option.

There are plenty of vacation rentals that cater to animals, but there are also tons of hotels that offer a variety of animal activities on the premises. Learn to hunt with hawks, play polo, or just hang out with a loving animal. Here are a few cool options to consider for your next vacation.

Giraffe Manor – Nairobi, Kenya

Giraffe Manor is a boutique hotel located in the beautiful Lang’ata suburb of Nairobi, Kenya. The hotel itself is gorgeous – a small collection of well-curated rooms that are designed for the most discerning visitor.

While the rooms and the hotel amenities are spectacular, the most amazing thing about Giraffe Manor is their herd of giraffes that roam the expansive grounds. The boldest among them will peek their heads into your room, hoping for a treat. You can stay here for your entire vacation, or book a single night (which costs around $550) as part of a safari through the region.

Weirdest American Holiday Traditions

The holiday season is here and businesses across the United States are going all-out to make sure that their decorations are better than the year before. The majority of Americans get so excited about holidays that it’s easy to forget how many traditions are strangely unique to the American culture. Actually, there are a large number of uniquely American holiday traditions that seem strange to those who didn’t grow up here. Let’s explore some of the weirdest American holiday traditions that are out there today.

The World in Liquor

When you go out for a night, how many options for liquor does your home base bar have on offer? Sure, they’ve probably got some standard gins, vodkas, rums, whiskies, and tequilas—but probably not much of anything else. If you’re traveling, one of the best ways to start to get to know the local culture is to indulge in a popular local drink.

The World in Soda

Our taste buds can tell us a lot about ourselves. While giants like Pepsi and Coca-Cola still rule the worldwide soda market, smaller brands that represent local tastes have maintained their loyal followers for years in places like Switzerland and Barbados.
