Ready to Plan Your Summer Travel? Here Is What You Need to Know When Booking Your Stays

YourUpdateTV

With the unofficial start of summer now just weeks away, you might be wondering what are the new summer travel trends and destinations to take into account? And how can one plan ahead and make sure that their summer trip is stress-free? Recently, Senior Communications Lead for North America for Airbnb, Liz DeBold Fusco conducted a satellite media tour to share travel tips and talk about the Airbnb 2022 Summer Release. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Dy1egHtkpdI The Airbnb 2022 Summer Release represents the biggest change to Airbnb in a decade. It includes: Airbnb Categories - A new way to search that makes it easy to discover millions of homes you never knew existed. Split Stays - An innovative feature that provides more options for longer stays by splitting your trip between two homes. AirCover for guests - The most comprehensive protection in travel, included for free with every stay. Airbnb Categories Millions of people are now more flexible about where they live and work. But travel search has been the same for 25 years — you enter a location and dates into a search box. Most of us can only think of a few dozen cities to type into the search box, but there are Airbnbs in 100,000 towns and cities around the world. That’s why Airbnb is introducing a new way to search designed around Airbnb Categories, making it easy to discover millions of unique homes you never knew existed. When you open Airbnb, you’re presented with 56 categories that organize homes based on their style, location, or proximity to a travel activity. When you search for a destination, your search results are also organized by categories that are relevant to that destination. As you view different categories, the map intelligently zooms to show you where the homes are located. To create Airbnb Categories, Airbnb evaluates millions of homes using machine learning to analyze titles, written descriptions, photo captions, structured data from Hosts, and reviews from guests. Members of Airbnb's curation team review listings and hand-pick featured photos — so if a listing is in the Amazing Pools Category, the first photo shows a pool. Then, each category goes through a final check to help ensure consistency and photo quality. The 56 Airbnb Categories include more than 4 million unique homes that are made possible by our Hosts all around the world. Airbnb Categories organize homes by what makes them unique, which helps people discover places they wouldn't have otherwise found. This can help alleviate over-tourism by redistributing travel to new locations beyond the same popular destinations. Split Stays In the last three months, nearly half of nights booked on Airbnb were for trips of a week or more. That's why Aibnb created Split Stays, an innovative feature that splits your trip between two homes. With Split Stays, you will typically see around 40% more listings when searching for longer stays. When searching a specific destination, Split Stays automatically appear in your search results. They also appear within 14 categories — including Camping, National Parks, Skiing, and Surfing — to inspire you to stay in two destinations as part of a longer trip. For example, when browsing the National Parks Category, Split Stays might suggest a pair of homes near Zion National Park and Grand Canyon. When viewing Split Stays on a map, an animated line visually connects the two homes to show you the distance between them and the sequence of the stays. Once you select a Split Stay, you’re guided through an easy-to-use interface to book each stay, one home at a time. AirCover for Guests This summer, millions of people will travel for the first time since the start of the pandemic. That's why Airbnb created AirCover, the most comprehensive protection in travel. AirCover is always included and always free, and it represents the biggest upgrade to Airbnb customer service in a decade. With AirCover, you're covered by four protections every time you stay on Airbnb: Booking Protection Guarantee - In the unlikely event a Host needs to cancel your booking within 30 days of check-in, Airbnb will find you a similar or better home, or they’ll refund you. Check-In Guarantee - If you can’t check into your home and the Host cannot resolve the issue, Airbnb will find you a similar or better home for the length of your original stay, or they’ll refund you. Get-What-You-Booked Guarantee - If at any time during your stay you find your listing isn't as advertised — for example, the refrigerator stops working and your Host can’t easily fix it, or there are fewer bedrooms than listed — you'll have three days to report it and Airbnb will find you a similar or better home, or they’ll refund you. 24-hour Safety Line - If you ever feel unsafe, you’ll get priority access to specially-trained safety agents, day or night. AirCover has been designed directly into the Airbnb app and website, making it easy for you to contact an agent and resolve issues quickly. Airbnb created a team of specially trained agents for last-minute rebooking assistance. The platform also significantly expanded their 24-hour safety line to cover 16 languages.

Guide to a Lush Lawn and Bountiful Garden

YourUpdateTV

Lawn and garden season is here, and despite the late start to spring, now is the perfect time to plant and seed for the coming months. Recently, Turf Scientist at Scotts, Phil Dwyer, and Horticulturist at Miracle-Gro, Amy Enfield, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss their top tips for getting your lawn and garden ready this spring. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/m0X3d6p3WzU When it comes to lawn care, the key thing is not to wait too long. In most parts of the country, spring has gotten off to a chilly start, but it’s important to not squander these prep weeks. The first thing to do is ask yourself whether you want to grow new grass - whether that is a large area or simply to cover some bare spots in your lawn – or are you simply looking to prevent weeds and have a thicker, healthier lawn overall. That question will help you narrow down what products you should be looking at. There are also several combo products like Scotts Triple Action and Scotts Rapid Grass that can address multiple lawn care needs in one bag. Always remember, lawns love nutrition and need to be fed. Another tip is for people to know the type of grass they have in their yard and a general sense for the condition of the soil. Many products are unique to specific grass types, and you may benefit from a product that enhances the condition of your soil. Finally, if you are planting new grass seed, don’t forget to water daily - it’s the number one mistake homeowners make when growing new grass. As for gardening, it may seem intimidating at first, but with the right products and a little bit of planning, getting beautiful results in your garden is really very simple. In the spring, the first thing to do is walk your garden and flower beds to plot out any new plants and flowers you’d like to add. Take note of how much sunlight touches the different areas you want to plant as sun exposure will really help narrow down your plant selection. Before planting, make sure the quality of the soil is good - whether in an inground flower bed, container, or raised bed. Miracle-Gro has a line of different soils specifically designed for each of these growing environments. And once you’ve planted your garden, don’t forget to feed your plants. As plants grow, they deplete the nutrients in the soil, but Miracle-Gro’s extensive line of plant food will help replenish those nutrients and keep your plants healthy all summer long. You can find more information on scotts.com and miraclegro.com. Right now, there is also a limited time promotion running on both websites for 30% off orders over $50, so head over and check it out. About Phil Dwyer: PhD Scotts R&D Lawns Research Principal works to develop new products and ways to help educate homeowners on how to succeed at caring for their lawns. Primary focus at Scotts is on lawn nutrition, disease management, new lawn establishment, water conservation and environmental research. A Graduate from MSU in Turfgrass Management with an MS and PhD in Turfgrass Pathology. About Amy Enfield: PhD Amy has over 25 years of experience in the Lawn & Garden industry.

BBQ Lovers, Start Your Appetites! Everett and Jones Opening at Graton Resort & Casino

Graton Resort & Casino

Sonoma County’s Graton Resort & Casino announced today that it will open an Everett and Jones Barbeque restaurant in the summer of 2022. It will be the newest addition to the Everett and Jones Barbeque family of restaurants. “Everett and Jones will be a great addition to our diverse family of restaurants,” said Mario Maesano, vice president of marketing of Graton Resort & Casino, the 200-room, 65-acre resort with a full-service gaming experience. “Everett and Jones has long been recognized as one of the top barbecue restaurants in the Bay Area. We are thrilled to welcome them to Graton Resort and Casino.” Renowned for its signature homemade beef links and pork ribs, Everett and Jones started in Oakland with their first location opening at 92nd Avenue. In 1974, Everett and Jones opened a second restaurant on the corner of University and San Pablo Avenues in Berkeley, and a third opened in 1975. Popular dishes include chicken, pork ribs, beef links, beef brisket with side dishes, mac & cheese, BBQ beans, potato salad and green beans. Founder’s story Dorothy Everett started Everett and Jones in Oakland in 1973 with her eight daughters, son and son-in-law, Jones. Dorothy realized if she wanted to get authentic barbeque sauce in the Bay Area, she would need to make it herself. Dorothy and her husband, Cleveland, moved from Alabama to California in 1952 looking for a better life. When Cleveland and Dorothy separated eight years later, Dorothy took care of the children and worked part-time tending a smoke pit at Jenkin’s Bar-B-Que on the famous 7 th Street in West Oakland. She later left Jenkins and became the manager for Flint’s Barbeque. Dorothy borrowed money from her best friend Cora and Harry Mock, of Fair Deal Market to start her own barbecue restaurant, and the first location of Everett and Jones opened. Dorothy named the restaurant after the maiden names of her children. Guide to the Good Life named Everett and Jones one of the top five of the 2022 Best Barbecue Restaurants in San Francisco/Bay Area. Everett and Jones’ “Super Q Barbeque Sauce” is a staple at all three restaurants and available wherever barbecue sauces are sold. About Graton Resort & Casino Located in Sonoma County, Graton Resort & Casino has a commanding presence among the rolling hills of Northern California's wine country. Owned and operated by the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, Graton Resort & Casino features table games, the latest slot machines, upscale and casual dining, plus entertainment options for visitors and locals alike.
