If you have never been to Medieval Times, just know that it can be a great time for families or just a night out with your friends.  For me it was a combination of both, 5 adults and one 5 year old made their way to our local Medieval Times to enjoy the show and the food.

Upon entry into the Medieval Castle you are greeted with people dressed in Medieval gear, the royal Renaissance themed clothing, the swords the boots the capes, crowns and thrones, they are all there.  If you enjoy taking pictures there are plenty of photo ops throughout the space.  After you get your tickets and assigned to an area (more about that later) and given your crowns, you are able to take a group photo with the King of the evening.  Medieval Times staff will have your photo available for purchase before you leave the show.

After your Royal Photo is taken, you are moved into a staging area where there is a bar (for the adults) gift shops and further props for photos.  The props include thrones for you to capture your royal image as well as suits of armor on display.  There are also ancient maps and other images on the walls for your picture taking enjoyment.

Once the doors are opened, you are then escorted to your designated area within the arena.  The areas are color coded and you have the opportunity to cheer for the knight corresponding to your color.  The knights compete and have jousting events.  There is also an opportunity to see a beautiful display of horses and a trained eagle that flies around the arena.

During the performance you are served food, chicken, potatoes and corn as well as soft drinks and dessert.  One of my guest is a vegetarian and there was no issue with providing her a vegetarian selection.  Desert was ice cream with a caramel topping.  A decent meal to accompany the entertainment.

The show was great for people of all ages.  There was even a time during the performance that people were able to have the queen make announcements such as birthdays.  So it can be a great event to celebrate a child or other family members birthday.

Be Blessed, Be Fabulous!

Car shopping can be an exhausting experience.  I remember when purchasing my first car becoming physically sick after visiting a dealership where the salesperson attempted to take advantage of me by selling me the cheapest car at the highest price.  I unrealistically vowed at that time to never buy another car.  However with the advances in technology and the ability to do and buy just about anything online, car buying has become easier than ever.  I am thankful to sites such as Cars.com for making the care buying experience so much better than my first car buying experience.

More than just a website that will help you buy, sell or trade a car, Cars.com, offers other advantages as well.  The information on the site includes tips for first time car buyers as well as how to check and properly install child safety seats.  The last week of September child safety seat awareness was highlighted.  Cars.com included an excellent video on their site for parents and auntie like myself that may have to transport children.

No matter what you are planning to do, trade or sell your current car, purchase a new car or research car safety, Cars.com has you covered.  So before your next car buying experience, check out Cars.com.  I learned that doing a lot of research ahead of time can save you a lot of time, frustration and money.  I subsequently have purchased two vehicles after my first horrible car buying experience and I can say with the help of the internet and websites such as Cars.com, my experiences have been pretty good.
