Celebrate summer’s last holiday weekend in tropical style without leaving Arizona. Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa is offering travelers the chance to take a virtual trip to not just one island, but four. Starting at $99 per night, from Thursday, Aug. 29 to Sunday, Sept. 1, go virtual island-hopping between Aruba (Aug. 29), Hawaii (Aug. 30), Jamaica (Aug. 31), and Barbados (Sept. 1).

Enjoy cocktails inspired by the four islands. These include the Island Rum Cranberry Cabana from Aruba, the Blue Hawaiian, Rasta Man Vibration from Jamaica, and the Tropical Highball, which blends Barbados’ renowned Mount Gay rum with Angostura bitters and ginger ale. 

The non-alcoholic menu is equally inspired, with flavors of citrus, coconut and pineapple. Guests will also be able to snack on exotic treats, served poolside from colorful, food-style street carts. Entrées include Aruba’s Spiced Beef Empanada and Pan-Seared Papaya Mahi Mahi, Hawaii’s Kalua Pig, Jamaican Rum Pork and Jerk Chicken, and Barbados’ Grilled Island Vegetable Kebob. Got a sweet tooth? Then head straight for Kesio (Aruban flan) and mini versions of Hawaii’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Appleton Rum Cake from Jamaica, and Bajan Bread Pudding with rum-plumped raisins from Barbados. Whenever possible, dishes will be made with fruits and greens grown on-site in our Chef’s Garden.

This Labor Day celebration is part of Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa’s Tropical Escape tour, showcasing different island getaways each weekend (Thursday-Saturday) through Sept. 6, 2013. Rates begin at $99 per night or from $119 per night with a $25 food and beverage credit.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
