Zion: Experience Utah’s First National Park

Zion National Park 1Zion National Park, located in Utah just north of the Arizona border, is the state’s oldest and most popular national park. The park, centered by the Zion Canyon which cuts through red colored Navajo Sandstone, is a must see for any nature lover planning a trip to Utah. With mountains, canyons, rivers, and natural arches being just a few of the amazing natural things, it is well worth visiting time and time again.

The Kolob Canyons section of the park is a great way to explore the more serene side of Zion. After a required stop at the Kolob Canyons Visitor Center, hike into this designated Wilderness area of the park. Much quieter than the Zion Canyon section, it is perfect for those looking for a little more solitude. Experience natural cascading falls, canyon streams, and amazing peaks over twenty miles of trails for you to traverse and enjoy.

Zion National Park NarrowsIf you would like to see Zion National Park’s most popular attraction, Zion Canyon, A hike through The Narrows is a great way to do so. This narrowest section of Zion Canyon, with its thousand foot high walls can be seen by walking a wheelchair accessible walk for a mile, or by hiking the actual Virgin River, but note that you will be getting wet, and maybe even wading in some spots.

If you are a canyoneer, or interested in canyoneering, Zion National Park is a wonderful place to explore. Canyoneering, an activity that involves rappelling, hiking, swimming, and problem solving is a challenging and fun way to enjoy the outdoors. Visit The Narrows above The Temple of Sinawava to get an introduction to the slot canyons of the park.

Zion National Park 2Buying a timeshare resale in Utah is a great way to visit this park, and the many others Utah has to offer, year after year. Premier Timeshare Resale and our licensed agents can help you find the perfect Utah timeshare at a fraction of the cost. Contact us with any questions!

Must Visit Mountain Biking Destinations in the U.S.

The United States has a vast array of destinations for those who like to be in the outdoors. Snowboarding, skiing, camping, fishing and boating are all great ways to get out and see the water, countrysides and hilltops. One fast growing way to explore all of these things is on a mountain bike. There are trails around the U.S. for mountain biking beginners to seasoned riders, and here are some of the best.

Crested Butte-mountain biking Crested Butte, Colorado has been a popular mountain biking destination since the 1970s and is host to the Fat Tire Bike Week, the oldest biking festival in the country. More than 750 miles of trails dot the countryside, ranging from easy trails winding across the landscape to difficult rides climbing to 13,000 feet. The Evolution Bike Park features 30 miles of downhill and cross country trails. The town itself is small and quaint, with friendly locals and delicious eateries.

Park City-mountain bikingKnown worldwide as a premier winter destination, Park City, Utah offers a lot more than downhill winter sports and the famous Sundance Film Festival. With over 400 miles of interconnected single track trails, it is no wonder Park City was named a gold status ‘Ride Center” by the International Mountain Bicycling Association. There is something for everyone here, lift assisted riding, gorgeous cross country to challenging inclines and descents. Stop by main street for some great grub and some drinks.

Moab-mountain bikingThe red rocks of Moab, Utah are a site to behold, and there is no better way to experience them than riding them. It’s possible to ride Moab year round, but the best time is in spring and summer. Hit some of the beginner or more advanced trails or ride The Whole Enchilada, which starts at 1,000 feet, climbs you to 1,400 feet, and descends you over several trails and terrain. You can ride to the magnificent Arches National park, but bikes are only allowed on the roads once you arrive. There are many microbrews and fantastic dining in the area after a long day of riding.

Great American Fishing Destinations

If you like sitting lake or riverside, wading into a stream, casting from a boat, or the thrill of reeling in the big one from the deep sea, the United states is one of the world’s premier angling destinations. Fresh waters abound, and saltwater is never too far away, so let’s discover some great American fishing destinations!
South Dakota Trout FishingMost people trek to Black Hills, South Dakota to see the majestic Mount Rushmore, or visit the gun slinging town of Deadwood. Often overlooked are the many streams full of trout that dot the landscape. The area is dotted with small to mid size lakes as well, easily fished from the shore or small boat. Yellow perch and trout are the mainstay here, and you should have no problem hooking a few.
Niagara Falls New York FishingNiagara Falls, New York, are probably the most famous falls in the country. Rather than trying your luck taking a ride over in a barrel, toss your line into the beautiful Niagara River. In the summer months, trout, walleye, muskies, and smallmouth bass abound, and the bass put up an exciting fight. While you’re there, might as well give the falls a visit as well.
Deep Sea Fishing in CalifornaiSan Diego, California offers some fun family friendly deep sea fishing. Bring your own gear and rent tackle, or if you need to, rent it all there. Tuna, sand bass and calico bass are just a few of the fish you’ll want to hook here. And if you have had your fill and want some fresh water action, there are lakes nearby as well. When you are done, hit one of the many coastal eateries and dine on some of the best seafood around.

Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club: Minutes from Kauai’s Historic Plantations

Waiohai Beach Club Kauai HawaiiKauai, Hawaii is known for its golf, beauty, surfing, and fun in the son. Hawaii has a rich history as well, and Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club is just minutes away from some of the island’s historic plantations. So while you visit, it is well worth it to leave your beautiful 2 bedroom villa or guest room and take in some local history.
The legendary Kilohana Plantation Estate, just about twelve miles from the resort, opened its doors to the public 25 years ago, and is a must see for anyone staying in Kauai. Centered on the sugar industry, the mansion at Kilohana was built in 1935 at the behest of Gaylord Parke Wilcox, head of Grove Farm sugar plantation. It was severely damaged by Hurricane Iwa in 1983, but has since been fully restored. It was added to the National Record of Historic Places in 1974, and named a State of Hawaii Historic Landmark in 1993. It is home to antiques, art, fine architecture as well as shops, dining and a gallery.
On Tuesday and Friday evenings, the plantation hosts an amazing theatrical Luau. The luau tells the story of the original Tahitian voyage to Hawaii through music and song. Everything is authentic, down to the hand made instruments. Authentic Polynesian cuisine and dessert is served, as well as traditional island cocktails!
Waiohai Beach Club Kauai NatureSeven days a week the Kilohana Plantation provides train tours of the 105 acre grounds, as well as a nature walk, orchard adventure, an animal feed stop where you can feed wild goats, pigs and sheep. You will have a lunch prepared with some pineapples picked freshly by you, and you can sample all of the in season fruits on the orchard adventure!
Also worth noting, the plantation is home to the Koloa Rum Company, with daily tours and tastings, or if you just want to sit and sip on a drink, stop by the Mahiko Lounge. Visiting the Kilohana Plantation will be an all day excursion to take everything in, and it is well worth the time.
Waiohai Beach Club Kauai OceanBeach fun, marine life, amazing dining, and local history are just a few great reasons to buy a Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club timeshare resale. Premier Timeshare Resale can help put you in the vacation ownership that is perfect for your needs. Contact us and our licensed RE/MAX agents to get started today!

Stay At The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North and Hike Maui

Maui-black sandSituated on the western shore of beautiful Maui, Hawaii, The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North is a luxurious resort with studio, one bedroom and two bedroom villas. The resort is home to many first-class amenities, including three pools, Ka’anapali beach access, a spa, kids club, tennis courts and so much more. The resort also offers many sightseeing options like helicopter tours, air conditioned coach tours, and parasailing tours to name a few. To me, the most intimate way to see the beauty of any local wilderness and wildlife is a good hike, so let’s take a look at how we can explore the island on foot. It’s time to lace up those hiking boots!
The Makahiku Falls hike in the Oheo Gulch, also known as the Seven Sacred Pools hike, is about one mile each way, and is the shorter hike. The Seven Sacred Pools hike begins in a rain forest in the Eastern Maui Mountain valleys, and goes all the way down to sea level. A great hike for novice to advanced hikers, just be careful on muddy trails and slippery rocks, as the waterfalls can make things a bit slick.
Maui Coastline‘Iao Valley State Park, located in Central Maui, is a perfect day hike. It is the site of a historic 1790 battle in which King Kamehameha conquered Maui’s warriors in the Battle of Kepaniwa in pursuit of uniting the islands. The park is known for its relatively easy going hikes, swimming holes, waterfalls and picnic areas. Parking is five dollars and a one dollar donation for entry.
For the more hardcore and experienced hiker, check out the Kauopo Gap Trail at the Haleakala Crater. This 8.3 mile trail provides two options, in or out of the gap, The “out of the gap” option is more popular, with hikers starting at the Paliku Cabin at the Kaleakala National Park. Travel downhill through dry brushlands, native forests, and ancient lava formations. At 3,800 feet you pass through the parks boundaries through the Kauopo Ranch and finally to the coast. During your descent the Pacific is always below you offering breathtaking views.
Maui Sunset Maui has so many hiking options, buying a Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North timeshare resale is a great way to explore Maui every year. Premier Timeshare Resale can help you save thousands when looking to buy resale. Contact our licensed agents and let us get you on the trails today!

In 2015, Marriott said that they planned to acquire a 182-unit property in South Beach, Florida. Recently, Marriott indicated that this sale would not be proceeding. Instead, Marriott purchased The Edgewater Hotel in South Beach, Miami, Florida. The Edgewater was built in 1936 and offers 49 studios and suites. These units are available for booking through the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Exchange Program as well as through Interval International. Now branded as Marriott Vacation Club, South Beach, the property is located on the 1400 block of Ocean Drive and offers a rich South Beach experience.
NY SkylineEarlier in 2016, Marriott announced an expansion in New York City with the management of The Strand Hotel. The Strand Hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan on 37th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Marriott plans to purchase the 176-unit hotel over time, beginning in 2018. It will be rebranded as a Marriott Vacation Club destination this month and is already available to existing owners to book through the Destinations Exchange Program.
Oahu SunriseMeanwhile in Hawaii, Marriott Vacations Worldwide says that they plan to add as many as 202 new timeshare units to their popular Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club in Oahu. Currently Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club has over 500 villas. Oahu is one of the most popular destinations in Hawaii and the Ko’Olina Beach Club has been a staple for families and couples alike.
Marriott’s Vacation Club Destinations points are an ideal way to explore these two new locations as well as existing Marriott locations, like Ko’Olina. Premier Timeshare Resale has licensed resale agents able to assist you in buying Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Points. Contact us today!

in Whistler, British Columbia is the largest at 113 vacation homes. But the average size is less than 60 vacation homes in a resort. The smallest resort is in Ucluelet (also in British Columbia, Canada) with only 10 vacation villas. Club Intrawest has also tried to stay away from a cookie-cutter approach to building their resorts. Each property boasts unique features that are not found in any other locations. In announcing the purchase, Tom Marano, Chief Executive Officer of Intrawest Resorts said, “We are excited to enter into this agreement and believe this is a strategic move for both the vacation club business and Intrawest.”
Diamond Resorts International also takes a points-based membership approach to timeshare ownership, offering destinations on six continents along with cruises. “We are acquiring a business with a very strong member base and a set of high quality resorts that will complement our portfolio, and we look forward to building a mutually beneficial relationship with Intrawest beyond this transaction,” said David Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Diamond Resorts International.
OceanResearch suggests that people who regularly take vacations are happier, enjoy more fulfilling relationships and feel healthier than those who do not vacation on a regular basis. Whether you have been a long-time Club Intrawest or Diamond owner, or are interested in discovering more about the merging companies, now might be the time to consider vacation ownership so you too can benefit from regular time away.
