Truck Loses Loads of Cash

If you happened upon some cash along I-75 in Loomis, Texas, turn it in right away. A Texas-based security company had bags upon bags of money spill from the back of one of their vehicles this week. The incident occurred at 8:30 a.m., and cars quickly pulled to the side as guards loaded cash into a large bin. It's not clear why the money spilled from the truck in the first place, but the guards are still missing $125,000, and the police department offered a 10% recovery reward to those who turned in the money before midday on Friday.

Now, if you've had a stroke of luck lately and have a little extra cash to splurge, here are some recommended spots to try.

One super location for those who want to explore the world is Athens. The capital city of Greece might offer a ton to tourists and business travelers alike, but it also has ancient sites that are incomparable to other Mediterranean vacation spots. Since Athens has mild winters and warm to hot summers, you can book a stay at any time of the year, and take in the exciting, vibrant qualities of the galleries, boutiques, museums, monuments, and attractions that Athens offers during any season. One of WhataHotel!'s recommended luxury hotels in Athens that never fails to impress is the Hotel Grande Bretagne, which even has views of two popular tourist sites, the Acropolis and Parthenon, as well as the regal Constitution Square, the Parliament, the original Olympic Stadium, and Lycabettus Hill, depending on where your hotel room is located. Whether you're sold on panoramic views or you'd like to pick a perfectly-aged tipple from the Hotel Grande Bretagne's collection of 3,000, this location will make you feel like you got a special deal (especially when you factor in the Exclusive Complementary Perks through If you can tear yourself away from the Roof Garden, visit the Agora-Athens Central Market, which will let you explore tasty Greek treats for a cheap price at any time. It's easy to do a bit of shopping right after your visit to the market, because it's located next to the popular pedestrian district near Eolou Street.

Are you more the resort type? The Arion Resort & Spa might be a better pick for you, because it features contemporary surroundings and another stunning view of Greece waterways and ancient ruins. Situated on the Athenian Riviera, this resort is only 15 miles from central Athens, but it gives you the feeling that you've chosen a resort in a secluded Mediterranean location. Explore the Excelsior Club Floor, an exclusive feature of this hotel, and then check out the private beaches and pools to get just a few rays. Since you'll be looking for ways to stay trim and feel healthy, drive to Athens one day to hike up Mount Lycabettus for a great view (plus stop at the amphitheatre and cafe). If you don't want to walk all the way up, you can take a train, and then take a leisurely walk down after exploring.

Got a craving to spend some of recently fund cash? Athens is a prime place to be for both resort lovers and luxury hotel enthusiasts.
