Where it began and lived for years and years!! To simply sail is wonderful (I like both) but these racing ships are amazing, as are the crew, how unbelievably challenging the sport is and historic in its American origins in my birth town of Newport, RI. The cup had been won by Aussies, Kiwis and others and so it traveled away from Newport but how nice for it to be back. Go and see these amazing crafts, learn about what it takes to race, how the ships have evolved, famous winning captains AND enjoy the beautiful town of Newport. I've revisited with my family over the years and it's ALWAYS awesome!!!

These are the only two LEGOLAND theme park locations in the U.S., so it's natural to make comparisons. These are our main observations -- see what you can expec... read more
  • Universal Orlando Express Pass vs. VIP Experience
    When we visited Universal Orlando Resort, we had the chance to embark on a VIP Experience, which might as well have been a VVIP Experience. We literally went from ride to ride and bypassed all lines. But isn't that the same advantage an Express Pass provides, you ask? Not exactly... Here's ho... read more
