Posted on September 08, 2020

Wow, talk about a subjective category! Exciting to some is hitting the tables and slot machines of Las Vegas (hopefully without masks one day soon). Exciting to others would be birdwatching in Hawaii (when you can back onto the islands). Okay, so let’s leave COVID out of this for now, turn the clock back to 2019 and look at the Top 9 Most Exciting Places to Own a Timeshare in destinations based on appeal only.
