Free and Budget-Friendly Adventures: A Virginia Beach Vacation is Easy on the Wallet

Virginia Beach, VA (Vocus) March 4, 2009

During times of recession and economic downturns, vacationers are searching for free and budget-friendly adventures. Regardless of the strength of the markets – Virginia Beach always offers a wealth of activities that are easy on the budget. From exploring the parks and wildlife to lounging on sun-drenched beaches, Virginia Beach beckons you to “Live the Life!” For more information and images, visit http://www.vbfun.com or http://www.vbpressroom.com.

Enjoy the Beaches

With 14 miles of open, public beaches – with no fees – Virginia Beach offers a variety of unique beaches to fit every mood. The newly-landscaped Virginia Beach resort area features live music, street performers, diverse festivals, as well as outdoor cafes and nightlife. If your idea of a “day at the beach” is more relaxed, visit Chesapeake Beach (known to the locals as “Chick’s Beach) for a more tranquil spot along the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Swimmers will enjoy the bay’s protected shallow waters. For a more secluded environment, the Sandbridge area on Virginia Beach’s southern shore is perfect. The pristine shores of Sandbridge are secluded, quiet and just 20 minutes from the main resort area. No hotels. Just breathtaking ocean-view rental homes, condominiums and peacefulness fill the Sandbridge shoreline. Sand sweeps from the shore, the traffic is less and seagulls leave long-lasting footprints.

Back to Nature

With more than 18,000 acres of state parks and a national wildlife refuge, families can embark on many free outdoor excursions. First Landing State Park, the most visited state park in Virginia, offers free monthly educational programs that include hiking, surf fishing, and animal tracking. Bike through Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge or False Cape State Park, and discover miles of unspoiled beaches in an ocean-to-freshwater bay habitat, barrier islands, dunes, freshwater marshes, maritime forests, ponds and ocean beaches. Back Bay and False Cape are home to wild horses, pigs, loggerhead turtles, bald eagles and a variety of migratory birds and endangered species.

Beach Street U.S.A.

The oceanfront comes alive with special themed entertainment along the sidewalks of Atlantic Avenue from 17th to 25th Streets nightly during the summer months. During Beach Street U.S.A., puppets, bands, jugglers, magicians and others entertain crowds right on the sidewalks. Free live concerts and theatrical productions take place seven nights a week along the oceanfront.

Oceanfront Festivals and Events

Virginia Beach celebrates diversity as it pulsates with a myriad of festivals, celebrations, and cultural events throughout the year. Dance to the beat of salsa, merengue, mamba and bachata tunes presented by some of the best national and regional acts at the annual Latin Festival. Explore the African origins of today’s diversified music genres during the Soul Music Beachfest and the Blues at the Beach festival. Groove to Caribbean, Latin, and pop music during the steel band competition at PANorama Caribbean Music Fest. Virginia Beach celebrates the German spirit each year with good food and good drink during Oktober Brewfest. Indulge in pizza, prosciutto and fontina, caprese, eggplant parmesan, lasagna, espresso, gelato and all things Italian at Festa Italiana. Festivals at the oceanfront are free and open to the public so grab your dancing shoes and bring your moves down to the Virginia Beach oceanfront festivals.

Historic Homes

Historic homes throughout the city offer a peek into the lives of Virginia Beach’s earliest residents. The Adam Thoroughgood House (circa 1680) stands on land that was part of an original land grant. Other historic homes still standing in Virginia Beach were constructed later in the colonial period such as the Lynnhaven House (1725), the Ferry Plantation House (1740) and the Francis Land House (late 1700s). All homes are open to the public for tours and host special interpretative programs throughout the year. Admission to the Adam Thoroughgood, Lynnhaven, and Francis Land Houses are $ 4 for adults; $ 3 for seniors 60 plus; and $ 2 for students. Admission for the Ferry Plantation House is $ 5 for adults; $ 2 for senior citizens and students are free.

Old Coast Guard Station

Step back in time at The Old Coast Guard Station. Housed in a 1903 former U.S. Life Saving Station, this quaint, oceanfront museum features rescue equipment used by turn-of-the-century surf men to save shipwrecked crews from a watery grave. Learn about shipwrecks that occurred just off the Virginia Beach coast and the history of lifesaving service from World War II to the present day. Take a peek through TOWERCAM, a roof-mounted video camera that zooms in on passing ships dotting the Virginia Beach horizon. The camera affords museum visitors the same view crewmen had from the tower nearly 100 years ago. Admission to the museum is $ 4 for adults and $ 2 for children ages 6-18.

Cape Henry Lighthouse and Memorial Park

Peek into the past at the original Cape Henry Lighthouse. Dating to 1791, it’s the oldest government-built lighthouse in America. Once you reach the summit, enjoy a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay – the same view once seen by ship watchers more than 200 years ago. Located on the Fort Story military base, the original Cape Henry Lighthouse is open to the public. Across the road, you’ll find the new Cape Henry Lighthouse. Built in 1881, it’s the tallest iron-encased lighthouse in the country, and is operated by the U.S. Coast Guard. Adjacent to the lighthouses, visitors also tour the Cape Henry Memorial Park which includes a replica of the First Landing Cross, planted by the first settlers to give thanks for a safe voyage after arriving on our shore in 1607. Admission to the lighthouse is $ 4 for adults, $ 3 for children ages 3-12, and free for children three and under. Note: Cape Henry Lighthouse is on Ft. Story military base. Access to military bases may be restricted for public tours, and a valid picture ID and vehicle search is required.

Virginia Beach entices visitors to “Live the Life” every season of the year! Virginia Beach is four hours southeast of D.C. by car and within a day’s drive or less from two-thirds of the U.S. population.

Two Belize Resorts Team up with White Sands Dive Shop to Bring the Underwater Paradise of Belize to Scuba Divers

San Pedro, Belize (PRWEB) March 6, 2009

Las Terrazas (http://www.lasterrazasresort.com), Belize’s premier luxury residential resort, and neighboring Journey’s End Resort (http://www.journeysendresort.com) announce their partnership with the White Sands Dive Shop (http://scubalessonsbelize.blogspot.com) on the island of Ambergris Caye. This partnership will allow discerning scuba divers from all over the world to enjoy top-notch accommodations and world-class scuba diving off of the largest barrier reef in the Western hemisphere.

The White Sands Dive Shop is a full service PADI dive center specializing in daily diving, SCUBA instruction and snorkeling for the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. White Sands is a PADI International Resort Association member and is licensed by The Belize Tourism Board.

“We are excited for the opportunity to enter into a mutually beneficial partnership with Journey’s End Resort and the newest of the luxury Belize resorts, Las Terrazas”, said Elbert Greer, PADI Staff Instructor and owner of the White Sands Dive Shop. “By merging our services with the solid reputations that these resorts have achieved in Belize as premier dive resort destinations we feel we will be able to offer divers an unparalleled experience”, added Elbert Greer.

Since Jacques Cousteau popularized the sport in the 1970s, scuba diving has been steadily increasing in numbers. With the recent ‘Planet Earth’ phenomenon, the public surge to explore the ocean floor has reached an all time high. As a result the interest to explore the underwater mysteries of the Caribbean off the coast of Belize and around its many cayes (islands) has been drawing bigger crowds year after year.

“Tourists aren’t just looking for sandy beaches and cocktails anymore, they’re expressing a genuine interest in finding out about the local dive sites, equipment rentals and dive boat availability,” says Ovel Leonardo of Journey’s End Resort in Belize.

Perhaps one reason why scuba diving in Belize is experiencing such a boom is that the natural wonders in its coastal waters were enough to attract even the great Jacques Cousteau in his televised explorations. The country of Belize boasts the second largest barrier reef in the world – second only to that of Australia, and is host to over 300 species of fish and 65 species of coral. Belize also provides drivers an opportunity to explore the world’s most famous blue hole – known somewhat uncreatively as the Great Blue Hole. The Great Blue Hole presents divers with a unique stalactite filled underwater sinkhole stretching 400 feet down, is a World Heritage Site, and is thought to have been first formed thousands of years ago as a limestone cave system where the roof eventually collapsed as the rising sea levels engulfed the system of caves.

With 347 miles of reef to choose from and vacations lasting only a week at best – making sure you dive the best sites is essential. Locals claim the country’s largest island – Ambergris Caye – offers the best of the underwater world. Home to 40 popular dive sites stretching over 20 miles of reef, the aquatically interested tourists should plan to make the island of Ambergris Caye their base.

According to Elbert Greer of White Sands Dive Shop, it’s not just the Cousteau’s of the world who are excited to strap on a tank, “We now offer courses from beginner to expert, guided tours, everything – people of all skill levels are coming down here to dive. And flights to Belize from the United States are just as accessible as many of the popular and more well traveled Mexico destinations.”

So while the ancient ruins and rain forest trails of Belize still appeal to world travelers who are not aquatically inclined, the undersea interest in the coastal waters that team with exotic fish within an intricate system of coral reefs is showing no signs of slowing. If you want a truly unique and unforgettable dive experience book a Belize vacation with Las Terrazas or Journey’s End Resort and let the experienced dive-masters of White Sands Dive Shop show you the underwater wonders of Belize.

New Community Center Captures The Heart Of Generations

Laguna Beach, CA (Vocus) April 30, 2009

The new Susi Q Senior and Community Center brings the vision of a long-awaited, multigenerational destination to reality in the heart of Laguna Beach. Community members, neighbors and city staff marked the recent grand opening with day-long festivities. Before the meeting rooms and studios were bustling with active seniors and inquisitive youth, there was a story of independence, community and environmental responsibility that sparked the inspiration for the center.

“This multigenerational Center has immediately become the community’s activity hub–a unique combination of beauty, sustainable design and function in downtown Laguna Beach,” says Laguna Beach Director of Community Services Susan Cannan.

The foundation of the building’s design is centered on energy-efficient, green building strategies. Early on, sustainable design experts at California-based LPA Inc worked closely with city staff and community supporters to facilitate an appropriate eco-friendly design.

“The city carefully weighed a number of green options and ultimately chose an approach that focused on an abundance of light throughout the facility to cut down on energy costs, and the use of recycled, natural and low-maintenance materials,” says LPA Civic Principal Jim Wirick.

Located in downtown Laguna Beach, the 8,200-square-foot Susi Q Senior Center and 8,000-square-foot Community Center nearly parallel the spectacular pacific coast. Situated in a u-shape design, the senior center is located to the north and the community center to the south, nestled above subterranean parking. Reflecting the values of the community it serves, the center’s shared central spine joins the two arms of the building that embrace the community with an inviting outdoor central courtyard.

“In terms of the green measures at Laguna, we first started by looking at building materials. There’s a substantial amount of concrete in the project, so we implemented the use of fly-ash as part of the aggregate, reducing water and adding a recycled content to the concrete mix. There is also a significant amount of structural steel which contains a high recycled content as well. Then, we looked at the building’s fabric, materials and interior finishes, we employed things like using dual-glazed windows to block heat,” explains LPA Design Principal Wendy Rogers. “We also fashioned rapidly renewable products like bamboo cabinetry and sustainable carpet — which contain a minimum of 10 percent recycled content — and covered the walls with low-emission paints.”

The Center maintains the eclectic array and intimate scale of buildings found throughout the village of Laguna. Designers cleverly infused the residential character of the unique canyon and beachfront setting surrounding the facility.

Other inviting features of the facility include a lobby area; reception; a multipurpose/library room with a fireplace overlooking the outdoor courtyard; dance and fitness studios; an art studio with roll up doors that spill out into the terrace to seat outdoor classes; a computer lab; a game room; a conference room; a kitchen area; a storage area, and a 72-space parking garage. The total project cost is around $ 15 million.

Primary sustainable design features include:

‘World’s Best Job’ Winner Ben Southall Reveals Strategy: The Jackrabbit Factor

Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) May 8, 2009

In a May 6 interview with the winner of the ‘World’s Best Job’, CTV’s Canada AM news personality Jeff Hutcheson listens as Ben Southall and his girlfriend Breanna Watkins from Vancouver explain how they used principles from a book called, ‘The Jackrabbit Factor’ to obtain their success.

Jeff surprised Breanna by taking a tangent from the interview’s primary topic to ask, “Breanna … what is the Jackrabbit Effect?”

Taken aback by the unexpected question, Breanna laughed, ”It’s a book called ‘The Jackrabbit Factor’ …and it’s basically writing a goal on paper as if you already have the goal. So we both wrote out about a page and a half long goal of having this job as if we already have it, and saying how amazing it is and how happy we are together, and just being on Hamilton Island and enjoying life there in Australia. So that’s what ‘The Jackrabbit Factor’ is all about, so,” she continued, “you could say we drew it to us.”

Jeff turned his attention to Ben. “What was the last thing you did before you went in to the interview?”

”I got my piece of paper, I did exactly as I did last night before I went to bed, I read the thing from top to bottom, I stood there looking out the balcony window, and I read it exactly again, I left it on the bed…” Ben continued, “I came back here after it all happened, and I thought, this thing actually works, she’s got something here, this girl, I’m sure she has.”

Ben apparently referred to the author of the book, Leslie Householder.

Jeff mused, “You know, sales for that ‘Jackrabbit Effect’ I’m sure are going to go through the roof.”

Even though the actual title of the book is ‘The Jackrabbit Factor’ and not ‘The Jackrabbit Effect’, the fundamental meaning was not lost in the reporter’s mistake.

As expected, with the release of the news clip, sales for the book increased, perhaps as eager readers hoped to learn how to obtain a dream job of their own. ‘The Jackrabbit Factor’ story follows down-and-out Richard and Felicity Goodman as they discover how to access, recognize, and trust their instinct for goal-achieving success.

When asked ”What is your task now?” Ben explained, ”To really act as an ambassador for tourism in Queensland… to try and take on board everything they’ve got to offer, and sell it to the world. That’s what I’m here to do.”

In this tough economy, the good news is that job-hunting and other goal-seeking readers don’t even have to buy the book. That’s because ‘The Jackrabbit Factor’ is available as a free (PDF) download.

In the months to come, maybe Queensland will experience a surge of tourists who read the book and use the principles it teaches to achieve a dream vacation in the same Australian paradise that Ben and Breanna will soon call ‘home’.

Decision Toolbox Recognized For Making Work ‘Work’ In Today’s Economy

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2009

Decision Toolbox has been named a winner of the 2009 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility, distinguishing the employer as a leading practitioner of workplace flexibility and effectiveness in Long Beach and across the nation. Decision Toolbox was recognized at the Chamber’s 118th Inaugural Gala held on June 25, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach.

The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility are part of the When Work Works project, an ongoing initiative of Families and Work Institute, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce (an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce), and the Twiga Foundation. Through When Work Works, these partner organizations provide research, resources, and recognition to employers nationwide, and share the results of research on creating effective and flexible workplaces that meet the needs of the 21st century.

The flexible work environment at Decision Toolbox goes beyond work from home options: the entire company is virtual and all of its team members work from home offices. Sophisticated, proprietary technology coupled with technologies such as VoIP phones, IM and social networking tools keep the team linked together, while a progressive results-focused management style keeps performance and productivity at a high level. The company has team members throughout Southern California and in Atlanta, Concord (NH), Dallas, Portland, Seattle, Washington DC and even in New Zealand.

The Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility recognize organizations that are striving to find new ways to make work “work” in today’s challenging economy. The Sloan Awards honor organizations of all sizes and all types across the country that are using workplace flexibility as a strategy to increase workplace effectiveness and yield positive business results, and to help employees succeed at work and at home.

“The When Work Works project was developed in response to decades of research which found that, simply put, work was not ‘working’ for many businesses and employees as well as it could be,” said Ellen Galinsky, President of Families and Work Institute and co-director of the national When Work Works initiative. “In a time of economic volatility, with increasingly complicated jobs and an aging workforce, the importance of the Sloan Awards is greater than ever as a tool to create workplace flexibility that can benefit employers and employees alike.” Each of the 2009 Sloan Award winners will also be recognized nationally and will be featured in the 2009 issue of the Guide to Bold New Ideas for Making Work Work, published by Families and Work Institute.

“Creating flexible work options is the ultimate win-win for businesses,” says Kim Shepherd, CEO of Decision Toolbox. “Our virtual workplace enables us to hire the best talent in the industry, no matter where they live, while at the time slashing our fixed overhead by eliminating our costly office space. We’ve hired a team of star performers and empowered them to reach their performance targets in their own way, from a home office. By offering unprecedented workplace flexibility, we’ve found that star performers flourished and productivity went through the roof. But most importantly, we have built a team that is happy and loyal. We are so proud and grateful to be recognized with the 2009 Alfred P. Sloan Award.”

Now in its fifth year, the prestigious awards program expanded its application base to organizations nation-wide for the first time in 2009. With the introduction of an “at-large” category and 30 participating communities across the country, any organization in the U.S. was eligible for the award. Applicants were evaluated in a rigorous two-step process, first comparing the employer’s application to nationally representative data from Families and Work Institute’s National Study of Employers, and then corroborating the employer responses through a survey of employees.

Long Beach is one of 30 select communities nationwide chosen to host and participate in the When Work Works initiative. Other communities participating in 2009 are: Arizona (statewide); Atlanta, GA; Aurora, CO; Birmingham, AL; Boise, ID; Brockton, MA; Charleston, SC; Chicago, IL; Columbus, OH; Dallas, TX; Dayton, OH; Durham, NC; Houston, TX; Kentucky (statewide); Long Island, NY; Louisville, KY; Manchester, NH; Melbourne-Palm Bay, FL; Michigan (statewide) Milwaukee, WI; Morris County, NJ; Providence, RI; Richmond, VA; Rochester, MN; Salt Lake City, UT; Savannah, GA; Seattle, WA; Spokane, WA; Twin Cities, and St. Cloud,, MN; and Winona, MN.
