Makin Travel & Events LLC

A digital travel agency



My mission is simple to empower everyone to travel.  
It's not about how you get there, but your experience once you are there

I recognize that in today's digital world we all have access to most travel suppliers directly.  
We all want to save money AND most of us are comfortable booking our own travel.  After all, that was me for years.  

Sometime it was fine.  But sometimes I found myself saying, "I wish I'd know about xy or z BEFORE I got here"  It could be an experience that needed to be booked before I arrived or a restaurant I wish I had tried.

In recognition of this type of Traveler, we now offer "Digital Destinations"; a self booking travel service of pre planned options for many destinations in the U.S..  
There are three types of Digital Destinations, City Stays, Weekend Retreats, & Drive Vacations

These Digital Destinations are packed full of information like "Where to Stay" "What to Do" "Where to Eat" and much more.  And because they are delivered through my new Trip Plans app, you are able to click directly to a website or call a phone number to make your booking directly with the vendor.   

Try it out, we did the research for you, you only have to DOWNLOAD AND GO!  It's all 100% Free.
