Hangout Music Festival is the first and only festival of its kind. Located in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama, Hangout features an eclectic musical lineup with stages located directly on white sandy beaches with ocean views. Hangout features today’s top rock ‘n roll and contemporary artists in a sun soaked setting. No other location allows music fans the opportunity to hear three consecutive days of their favorite bands while experiencing mind, body and spirit rejuvenation on the beach.
Shed the mud-boots and sleeping bags and wake up each morning from a fully equipped condo, many with ocean views. Lodging options are available for every budget and many condos and hotels are accessible to the festival grounds by walking or biking. Thats part of what makes the Hangout experience so unique.
Festival attendees can sip bushwackers ocean side, and soak up the sun on a beach blanket while cool tunes float by. With never before seen beach and festival amenities, lodging comforts close by, pristine beaches, and world-class musicians, Hangout features the ultimate music experience for sophisticated festival fans.
Gulf Shores has quickly become THE destination location to see blockbuster concert events. The 2010 inaugural Hangout Music Festival paved the way for the Concerts for the Coast music series that filled the summer of 2010 with performances from Jimmy Buffett & Friends, Bon Jovi, Brad Paisley, Hank Williams Jr., Gretchen Wilson and Alan Jackson.
Concerts for the Coast was created to offer much-needed economic support to the Gulf area drawing visitors from around the country and stimulating the local economy impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Hangout and the Concerts for the Coast music series have brought over 100,000 visitors to the region and continue to greatly support local businesses.
The inaugural Hangout Beach Festival, May 14th-16th, 2010, featured Trey Anastasio, Zac Brown Band, John Legend, The Roots, Ben Harper and Relentless7, The Black Crows, Alison Kraus and Union Station, Gov’t Mule, Ray Lamontagne, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Matisyahu, Girl Talk, and many more.
May 20 & 21, 2011 aims to be bigger and better with another stellar lineup, new activities, posh amenities and a backdrop of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

According to www.tripsmarter.com there are 2,112,478 students running around the nation, currently enjoying their school break.
The monthly arts festival will be of the first of its kind to combine visual, performing and musical arts from St. Maarten’s avant-garde arts scene.
Thierry Gombs, director of culture, sports and youth affairs in St. Maarten, discusses the importance of the Arts in the Plaza festival to St. Maarten. “I think that the event should be something interesting. It is always good to showcase what we have here in St. Maarten — whether they are native St. Maarteners or people that decided to live here in St. Maarten, they show off their art. It is an event that could promote the island that could showcase what is done locally here, and of course, anything that is done for the promotion of this little rock, I’m there,” said Gombs.
The event is free and open to the public. The festival will continue into 2011 with new performances and exhibits each month scheduled for January 19, February 16, March 16, April 20 and May 18. A complete listing of featured artists will be announced prior to each event at http://www.stmaartenlife.com. For festival updates like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/artsintheplaza. Orient Express Hotels, La Samanna Resort, Porto Cupecoy and Dom Perignon Champagne are sponsoring the festival.
The Porto Cupecoy Plaza will host the Arts Festival. Porto Cupecoy Plaza is located on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, the culinary, shopping and yachting capital of the Caribbean. Nestled in a protected cove on Simpson Bay, and just across the border from Terra Basse and the French side of the island, Porto Cupecoy offers the best of both distinct sides of this breath taking island.

I’m spending this weekend in one of my favorite Florida Beachtowns, Delray Beach. I’m staying at a new resort, The Seagate Beach Club on Atlantic Ave in Downtown Delray.
The Seagate Beach Club offers a distinguished charm and history. This exclusive private oceanfront club is located directly on the beach in downtown Delray. Newly constructed on the footprint of the previous club, in a British Colonial style with a Bahamian influence, casual elegance is reflected in the soft, contemporary interior.
A relaxing destination for members and their guests – the beach belongs to you at your castle in the sand. It’s an awesome Spa and Beach Club. So glad I am here!

I recently returned from Haiti. One of the cities I visited was Montrouis, a Beachtown that is near Saint Marc and two hours from the Capital of Port Au Prince. Montrouis is a coastal town in western Haiti. Montrouis is also one of the best beach towns in Haiti, with several well renowned hotels and resorts, including le Moulin-sur-Mer. The town is located on the Cotes des Arcadins, one of Haiti’s longest stretches of pure white sand beaches. It is also an exceptional place for sailing and fishing.
Haiti is on the West side of an Island in the Caribbean. The East side of the Island is the Dominican Republic.
