A sweet new place to visit
There's just no way around it; A week-long break in October is fantastic. Three years. Three different countries. Three amazing fall breaks.
My trip to the Dominican Republic was amazing. The weather was great, the food was tasty, the resort grounds were spotless, and the beach was one of the best I've visited. I can't say a single bad thing about my trip!
Two recommendations: I highly recommend the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana as a place to stay and if you go there, call the Don Lucas cigar people for the factory tour. It was another high point of the trip
Poker players: The Hard Rock casino has a poker room with, as you can guess, a lot of tourists playing. It's easy money for a sold player.
