Why did you become a travel agent? I’ve always been a bit of a planner, type A person, and I was always helping friends/family members with their trips, so I decided that maybe I should branch out & make it my official job so I could help other people as well! I love helping my clients make their travel dreams come true!

While working with Kingdom Konsultant Travel for the last 5 years, I have enjoyed helping clients plan family vacations, family reunions, honeymoons, anniversary trips, girls/guys getaways & destination weddings. Each of these experiences has provided me with different perspectives that have helped shape my overall vacation planning knowledge and expertise. Whenever possible, I try to apply those different perspectives when I help clients plan their vacations so that their experience is tailored to their unique interests and circumstances. I truly love what I do, and I look forward to helping you plan your next vacation! karen@kingdomkonsultant.com

We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Oak Trail is a walking course. Want to get a quick game in on the back 9 before heading to the Parks? Reserve the "Sunrise 9" option, and breakfast is included! Reservations: 407
