The Fall is a great time to visit new places!

Jamie W. - Endless Vacation Magazine UpdatesFor me, I have always associated “vacation” with the Spring and Summer months. Beaches, pools, water parks, and that great summer tan is what always got me inspired to travel to new places. However, while working on the fall issue of Endless Vacation® magazine, I realized I am missing out on a ton of fun activities and great places.

One article I enjoyed working on was “Virginia is for Wine Lovers.” I have been to Virginia a dozen times, yet I never had the chance to check out Wine Country. Since I live on the east coast, it is a perfect long weekend getaway. I can just imagine the car ride to Virginia…checking out the great scenery and fall foliage.

While researching this article, I was most impressed with all of the different activities the resorts in the area had to offer: indoor water parks, wine tours, horseback riding, even a Murder Mystery Dinner! It turns out there is a lot more to do on vacation in the fall than I thought, especially if you only have a weekend to fit it all in.

After finishing each new issue of Endless Vacation magazine, fellow co-workers typically hear me say “this is my favorite one yet!”…so it is only fitting that I admit this fall issue is one of my favorites. But after seeing what is in store for our Winter issue, I am afraid this one has some tough competition. Looks like I will be packing my bags for fall AND winter!

Be sure to check back on the RCI blog this week. We’ll be sharing stories and photos from other RCI subscribing members who have taken a trip during the fall to experience all that autumn has to offer.

And if you haven’t had a chance to check out the Endless Vacation magazine app for the iPad®, download it now and take a look at our fall issue!

Endless Vacation® app for the iPad®: Your next vacation is right at your fingertips!

Jamie W. - Endless Vacation Magazine UpdatesWhenever I tell people I work on Endless Vacation magazine, their typical response is “wow, it must be so fun reading about traveling and great destinations all day.”  And the truth is: it is!  I can’t help but picture myself sitting on the beach in the Dominican Republic, skiing the fresh powder in Lake Tahoe, walking on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, or taking a zip line in the rain forest in Costa Rica.  But I have to admit, every time one of our issues goes to print, I get a little sad that we cannot include all of the amazing photos our photographers take while on photo shoots.  And mostly, I am even sadder I am not the photographer taking those pictures!

But, with RCI’s innovation and dedication to being on the cutting edge of technology, I was more than excited to hear I could help bring Endless Vacation magazine to the iPad in its very own app!  Working on the Endless Vacation magazine app for the iPad has been fun and rewarding, knowing that we get to show you even more!  The Endless Vacation app for the iPad showcases even more photos in each article than in our printed issue.  Not only that, we get behind the scenes footage from our photographers and writers and incorporate those videos into the app to really bring the destinations to life.  Plus we added some cool extras like panoramic photos, interactive images and maps, audio clips, fun facts, and links to explore more about RCI affiliated resorts – making it even easier to research and book your next vacation with just the tap of a finger.

Just visit the iTunes® App Store and download the latest issue of Endless Vacation magazine onto your iPad.  I hope you have as much fun playing with the Endless Vacation app for the iPad as I had working on it.  If you find yourself dreaming about catching some rays in St. Maarten, wanting to watch artisans blow glass in Los Cabos, or find the RCI affiliated resort for your next vacation, then we have done our job.  Now get playing!
