Look what’s coming out of Mfa’s travel clients!

Looking for a beach vacation? Don’t miss The Cayman Islands:

Dive or snorkel the Kittiwake, a decommissioned U.S. Navy ship, sunk in January 2011 and now a fascinating wreck full of marine life.

• Families can visit during Cayman Summer Splash, June 1 through September 30, where kids eat, stay and play for free. Visitors who book a minimum 5-night stay, get the 5th night free, along with either a complimentary trip to Stingray City or “Learn to Dive” SCUBA course.

Kids can also join in with half-day fly fishing sessions to learn to cast, knot tie, and identify insect life.

• With the arrival of spring comes the beginning of a new era for The Little Nell’s culinary offerings.

Bask in the beautiful views of North Lake Tahoe at Squaw Valley USA:

• With more than 700” of snow on mountain this season, it’s a great time to hit the slopes in a bikini or dip in High Camp’s lagoon and spa. Spring Season Passes are available for $199 through Memorial Day weekend.
