About Me

Since Sep 2008

Lives in Nashville, TN

50-64 year old

We are a retired couple wanting to see the many beauties of our grand country. Our choices of locations and activities are driven by our love of nature, history, and architecture. Now that we are no longer constrained by employer vacation policies, we try not to rush from destination to destination; we want to enjoy the most that we can at each stop. I appreciate the wonderful information from others on TripAdvisor, and I use this site extensively when planning trips. I hope that my contributions help others. When looking at lodging reviews I've come to one conclusion: if a large portion of the reviews are 5 stars by "members" who've only posted one or two reviews -- they're fake. I stop looking at that establishment and move on to the next one. I rate the hotel with respect to the locale and my own desire for moderate-priced lodging. If I've found a hotel to be clean, attractive, and comfortable with friendly staff and good value for the cost, I'll rate it a five.
