Angela Barr, ACC
Ypsilanti, Michigan Travel Agent
Family & Group Travel Specialist
Travel is my passion!!
My Mother introduced me to travel at a very young age when we lived in California. As a family we would take road trips every year visiting San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon.
Plus regular trips to the local theme parks – Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Knott’s Berry Farm. These trips created wonderful memories that I still cherish to this day!
As a Mother to two sons, I have passed on my love of travel. I have been fortunate enough to take my children on many amazing vacations. Taking vacations with my children and seeing the world through their eyes, made me realized what an amazing gift traveling really is.
Where I’ve been
I have visited 31 different US states, 11 Caribbean islands and taken 8 cruises. Some of my favorite destinations are New Orleans, Chicago, and Jamaica.
My favorite US vacation destination is Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. I have visited more than 10 times in the past 9 years. I have another trip planned for October 2015. I’m looking forward being back in my happy place.
My favorite Caribbean destination is Jamaica. The island is absolutely beautiful!! The food is wonderful and the people are friendly. My next trip Jamaica will be in October 2015. I can’t wait to go back!

What I can do for YOU
Over the years, I have cultivated relationships with top suppliers. Because of this, I know exactly where to go to find the best destinations, newest products and special promotions.
This relationship helps me to better assist my clients in planning vacations that will meet their unique needs.
With years of industry experience, I have both the knowledge and experience to help my clients decide which destination, cruise or resort will best fit their needs.
Plus, I have the travel information they need - from the best attractions to see, the most exciting activities to do, and the most affordable ways to get there.
I understand that some clients may feel limited by their vacation budget. That's why I am dedicated to helping them plan vacations that give them the best possible value for their vacation dollar.
I devote time and effort to making sure my clients are happy with their travel options. Once they book their vacation with me, I am with them every step of the way – before, during and after their vacation.
If they need my assistance, I'm just a phone call or e-mail away. My clients receive the personalized attention they not only need, but deserve.
Who has time to wade through the vast amounts of travel information out there? I do! I save my clients both time and money by doing the research for them.
I narrow down the list to identify the vacation options that best fit their needs and then present it to my clients
