Pearl Harbor and a Luau at Oahu

Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor, and Punchbowl City tour takes guests to see the USS Arizona (BB-39) and more.

As you know from my earlier blog, I’m happily making my way to gorgeous and sun-drenched Hawaii this spring. I’ve already planned my trip to the Big Island and Maui, and now I’m continuing my fantastic journey to scenic Oahu! Why don’t you come along and join me?

Let’s begin with the Grand Circle Island Tour and save up to 30% on all tour sites. What could be more dazzling than the brilliant island of Oahu? We should see everything we can, and this fully-narrated, 120-mile tour around the island makes that possible. In addition, a luau is another item on my “to do while in Oahu” list. Let’s be sure to seek out the lifestyle of the Hawaiians by going to Paradise Cove Luau, which helps to preserve the beauty and the culture of the island. With our special savings, we can save more than $25 on this must-see island event.

Another site that I must see is historic Pearl Harbor. With our substantial savings from, we can find a deal for over $40 off of the Pearl Harbor Heroes Adventure Tour and see the famous site. I’m also going to visit the Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor, and Punchbowl City tour (all while saving more than 30%), which will transport us all back in time to December 7, 1941. After all of that, I want to catch the scenic outdoor adventure of the Kualoa Ranch ATV Tour.

Planning this trip to Hawaii has been a dream come true for me! Remember that it can be your dream too. So register your employees and take advantage of these tremendous deals right now, and then get away to your own Hawaiian journey!

Hawaiian Journey to the Big Island & Maui

Take a Hawaii trip and enjoy the crystal blue Pacific Ocean and sandy beaches.

The touch of warmer weather continues to make me want to go anywhere the wind will carry me…so, this spring, I’m going to let it carry me far away to a place where warmth and beaches and sun are an all-year-long activity: This spring, let’s go to Hawaii!

I’ve never been to Hawaii before, so I’m starting with the Big Island, of course. To begin my journey, the Grand Circle Island Tour by Polynesian Adventure is one fabulous way to see all of the beauty and grace of Hawaii. Planning ahead can save me more than 30%, and I get the opportunity to view Volcano National Park as well. I’m going to keep up with the volcano exploration by experiencing the Kilauea Volcano Bike and Lava Tour or Walk, where I can save and take in the breathtaking scenery.

Choose your Spring Break Destination

The ocean, sand, and warm weather are all you need for a great spring break and can help.

When was the last time you went on Spring Break? I mean a real, authentic, bikini-wearing, umbrella-drink-filled, warm-weather, destination event. When I think back, the last time I enjoyed a Spring Break was in Daytona Beach, Florida, between my junior and senior years in college.

Obviously, I’m long overdue for a unique spring travel event. This year, it’s time. So I am gathering a few close friends and getting away again. Although this time around, relaxation is the key. I am determined that we will spend our days sipping drinks by the pool or enjoying pampering full body, hot stone massages. I’m not sure exactly where we will go or even how we’re going to get there, but anywhere with sunshine sounds like a Spring Break to me, for sure. Might I say Hawaii?

It’s time to get you on the road again too! Gather some old (or new) friends or maybe even just yourself. Create the perfect Spring Break getaway for you and yours, and take advantage of all the great deals TicketsatWork has in store for you. There is nothing as motivating as a break…and spring is the best break time of all. So take a look at our incentives on just about everything, just about everywhere—all the best shows, hotels, special events and activities you can imagine. Choose your destination. And don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!

Revitalize the Workforce

So I’ve been thinking about good weather a lot lately (mainly, as you can guess because we never get any). There isn’t a minute this week that I haven’t wished that we were heading into the month of June instead of the March freeze that we have before us.

Still, I’m not complaining (too much.) I’m just considering how weather affects our moods, or at least the way in which the weather affects mine. This morning’s ice storm left me tired and lifeless. Shuffling through slush creates a somberness that no amount of protein power smoothies can balance out.  And all the vitamins I gather up don’t seem to energize me one iota when there isn’t an occasional glimpse of sunshine on the horizon. Is it just me? Or does it seem as if we all could use something invigorating….at work, in school, in life?

As far as me getting my energy back anytime soon, all bets are off….but at least there is some hope for revitalization for you. Once you register your employees, as well as yourself, for TicketsatWork, you and your company will have access to countless ideas for energizing, revitalizing, and getting your groove back. So if it’s a Broadway show that tickles your fancy, or just taking in a movie, your energy level deserves a lift. Let’s all shift our moods in the right direction….
