Unexpected National Parks

Since Pack Up + Go tends to send travelers to more urban areas, we wanted to share some of the National Parks that exist in the cities of our country to continue commemorating National Keep America Beautiful Month.

Hotel Partner Interview: Omni San Francisco

Head back in time as you step into this 1926 stone building, a former bank, and immediately feel transported to another era. This Financial District property features plenty of historical flare with chandeliers, high ceilings, marble staircases, tall windows, and mahogany paneling. Being in the heart of downtown make this a favorite for business or leisure travelers!

Testimonial Tuesday: Justine + Nathaniel

Q: Why did you sign up for your trip? What were you looking to get out of it?

A: A surprise trip with my boyfriend before I started Veterinary School.

Q: Did you have any hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?

A: I was extremely nervous but excited. It was an adrenaline rush. Also very romantic.

Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?

A: Based on the weather information, we guessed somewhere on the west coast… So we were right!

Q: Upon discovery of your destination, what were some of your perceptions about the city prior to your trip?

A: I was pumped! I had heard so much about San Fran.

Q: What made the trip feel unique and tailored to you?

A: All the specific food recommendations and list of places to go. We were also staying in a really cool part of the city.

image

Q: What did you like most about your travel accommodations?

A: The hotel was very nice. I loved the location and everything.

Q: What was your favorite experience that we recommended for you?

A: We loved the Science museum in Golden Gate Park. That was amazing.

Q: What did you discover on your own (not on your itinerary) in your destination that you feel is share-worthy?

A: Dolores Park was a really fun time. It was there that we met some local people that told us where to go out at night. That was a blast.

image

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: My favorite part was the surprise! But other than that, I loved hiking by the Golden Gate bridge and seeing the sites.

Q: If you could do the trip over again, what would you do differently?

A: Nothing! I had the best trip ever.

Q: What did you learn on your trip, or from your trip?

A: I learned that I love to not plan trips. I wish I could be surprised on every trip!

Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to your friends and family?

A: It was an incredible trip. It was planned well and it was stress-free.

Q: What would you say to someone who is hesitant to go on a surprise getaway?

Testimonial Tuesday: Cole Egger

Q: Why did you sign up for your trip? What were you looking to get out of it?

A: This was a birthday present to myself, and it sounded like a lot of fun. Plus, I’ve been meaning to be more adventurous, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I was looking to have a great experience, and I did for sure!

Q: Did you have any hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?

A: I was nervous because I’m pretty paranoid in general. I wasn’t sure if my plane tickets would get to me, or even be usable. I wasn’t sure if my hotel reservation would be waiting for me when I got there. I wasn’t sure this was a real company, since you always hear about the scams on the internet.

Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?

A: I really had no idea where I was going, but it was a very pleasant surprise, since I had never even been to California before!

image

Q: Upon discovery of your destination, what were some of your perceptions about the city prior to your trip?

A: If I’m being honest, the first thing that came to mind when thinking of San Francisco was the ever-present LGBT community (no offense meant). But it also brought to mind the ocean, beaches, and sunglasses.

Q: What made the trip feel unique and tailored to you?

A: It was unique because I didn’t have to worry about getting there or my hotel reservations. That was a completely new experience. It felt tailored to me because there was a lot of walking around the city to experience natural locations (parks, community gardens, etc.).

image

Q: What did you like most about your travel accommodations?

A: The staff of the Grand Hyatt were INCREDIBLE. The bed was enormous, and I had it all to myself! Being in a family of eight, I was never alone, so having the bed to myself - no, having the ROOM to myself - was absolutely phenomenal. It was also a higher-quality hotel than I’m used to because we couldn’t afford something like this growing up.

image

Q: What was your favorite experience that we recommended for you?

A: The Golden Gate Bridge. I wasn’t able to get to everything (I would’ve liked to get to Alcatraz), but the Golden Gate Bridge was by far the best part.

Q: What did you discover on your own (not on your itinerary) in your destination that you feel is share-worthy?

A: Honestly, I was too busy trying to hit points in the itinerary to do much personal exploration. I would recommend using Uber, though!

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: One of my favorite parts was simply the fact that if I ever had a question, Lillian answered IN A FLASH. It really put my mind at ease. My favorite part of being in San Francisco had to be the Golden Gate Bridge. Walking across was pretty surreal, and being able to look out across the bay at everything (Alcatraz, the city basically wrapping around the water, exclusive clubs/wharfs, etc.) was breathtaking.

image

Q: If you could do the trip over again, what would you do differently?

A: I didn’t wear the right shoes while exploring the city. I had comfortable shoes with me, and the shoes I wore were OK, but I went more for style instead of comfort. I would also walk around the actual city a little less and just get to the sights I want to explore.

Q: What did you learn on your trip, or from your trip?

A: A weekend - even a long weekend - isn’t enough time to explore a city like this, but it’s enough time to have a life-changing experience.

Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to your friends and family?

A: I haven’t stopped raving about Pack Up + Go since the moment I got back. I e-mailed everyone at work and made my family sit through my picture presentation. Everyone seems to like the idea. Hopefully, some of them will explore this option. I know I will keep coming back!

Q: What would you say to someone who is hesitant to go on a surprise getaway?

A: I was hesitant, too. Is it a scam? Will my plane tickets work? Will my hotel reservation be waiting for me? What if I don’t like the destination? IT’S TOTALLY WORTH IT! There will always be things to do and experience no matter where you go. And yes, YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE. Take the trip!
