RedWeek.com Newsletter - January 2012

Travel can be more than airports and luggage carousels by turning it into a game!

Travel by night to see a city in a whole different light (Vegas is great for this)
Choose a slower method of travel (some cruise lines offer service between Boston, Florida and other U.S. port cities)
Ditch the car and rent a bike to tour the city (you'll get a great workout doing this in San Francisco)

It's that time of year again… annual maintenance fees and special assessments are being mailed out and many timeshare owners are getting a very nasty surprise… Read Lisa's full answer »
