Lauren grew up in Hawaii where she started working as a travel agent in 1986. In 1997, she traded the ocean for the desert when she moved to St. George. Lauren loves to hear about her clients adventures when they get back from their vacations, which in turn adds new destinations to her ever growing bucket list. Her main focus is helping her clients get the best value for their budget, and to have an exceptional travel experience that they will never forget.

We flew from St. George to Baltimore, via Denver. Lauren was great in booking this for us.
We met two of our daughters there and enjoyed the B & O Railroad museum and Fort McHenry. We then travel to Philadelphia for the open house of the new LDS Temple. Also visited Independence Hall, The Liberty Bell, the US Mint, etc. After leaving Philadelphia we went to Amish country near Lancaster, PA. Had a great time and then went to Mt. Vernon and Annapolis to visit the Naval Academy. It was great to use the St. George Airport and not have to drive to Las Vegas. Thanks again Lauren.
Wanted to surprise my wife for her 60th and needed some help logistically so made a call to Lauren at Travel Connection. Lauren gave me options for a beach getaway thus facilitating the worry and the stress. We came up with a 5 night Cancun getaway at the 5 star Riu Cancun, an all-inclusive resort. I felt very confident that my wife would be surprised and thrilled with my choice. I was not disappointed when I presented her with the flight tickets and brochure voucher, she was totally shocked. She loved the plans and especially the destination. We would be celebrating her birthday in Cancun. We loved the Riu and all the amenities on the property and were thoroughly relaxed. The weather cooperated with our trip and we enjoyed many days sitting on the beach with daiquris just wondering…” when is the cabana boy coming back with drinks?”
Thanks Lauren for all your years of help and knowledge.

One year ago, after having lived in St. George for less than a year, my then “significant other” and I wanted to take a trip somewhere. We really didn’t know where, so we went to Travel Connection travel agency. As luck would have it, Lauren greeted us, had us sit at her desk, and a wonderful relationship began. After much discussion about when, where and how to travel, we decided on a Hawaiian cruise, leaving from LA, 15 days in all. As the time grew closer to our cruise, we (my significant other and I) decided to get married on this trip. We did so on a beach on Oahu at sunset. It was perfect. With Lauren’s expertise, we enjoyed a different excursion on each of the islands. All of the details of our wedding trip were covered, and all we had to do was enjoy ourselves.
Last week, to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, Lauren helped us plan a trip to an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana. Again, it was a wonderful vacation with all the details taken care of professionally and expertly by Lauren.
We are already thinking about our second anniversary trip next year and will definitely use Travel Connection and Lauren to help us plan it!
