Urban adventuring in Oakland

Oakland, California, is the ultimate destination for those who love urban adventure. As San Francisco’s sister city, it’s known for its amity, vibrancy, and spunk. Whenever I visit, I always learn something new about what ...

How to spend a weekend in Santa Barbara

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains, charming Santa Barbara exemplifies the Mediterranean lifestyle to the degree that it's often referred to as the “American Riviera.” Santa Barbara is the ultimate seaside town ...

Taking it SLO on California's Central Coast

San Luis Obispo and the Central Coast epitomize California’s laid-back lifestyle. However, many San Diegans don’t consider these destinations due to the lack of direct travel options. Thankfully, Alaska Airlines offers nonstop flights from San ...

Chicago is that wonderful town

What a great place! Not long ago my husband and I were in the Windy City (more about that later). It was early October, unusually warm; in fact, temperatures were in the high 70s with ...

Nostalgic day-cation in Los Angeles

Like most people hailing from Los Angeles, I have a healthy love-hate relationship with the city. I grew up a "valley kid" in the suburbs of the San Fernando Valley. Downtown, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, ...

Damn, it's cold! NYC in late winter

Editor's note: as in California and much of the country, stay-at-home orders are currently in place in New York City as of spring 2020. Wherever you are, stay safe, as we look forward to travel ...

Ghost hunting at the Tombstone Motel

Baseball game road trip to L.A.'s Echo Park

A few Saturdays ago, I spent some quality time in Los Angeles for a Dodgers game in Echo Park. I’d hadn’t been to one of their games in quite some time, but with my friend ...

Discovery and serenity in Cambria, CA

When I think of Cambria, I often think of my Grandpa Bristol – outfitted in a pair of brown waders – prying large red abalones from tidepool rocks. The Bristol home was close to the ...

Into the West: Sedona & Grand Canyon road trip

For me, the Wild West was never something that piqued my interest. The desert, cowboys, the Gold Rush, saloons; it all seemed rather dusty and trite to me. That is until I got a chance ...

NY’s Finger Lakes: big city thrills, mountain town charm

Usually, when you think of little towns in Appalachia complete with serene lakes, it’s easy to make assumptions on what you can do and see. Of course, you expect beauty and quiet relaxation. But the ...

Love for H-Town

Ahh, Houston! As soon as I landed, my shirt got stuck to my body as I breathed in that humid thick air. Siri told me that my week visiting Texas for my cousin’s wedding was ...

Idyllic Idyllwild: a weekend in the woods

"Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." ~ John Muir Ah, now I understand ...

I forge a Virginia ham trail

When you visit a region, its cuisine says as much about its culture as paintings in an art museum. Travelers rush to Napa Valley for wine, Wisconsin for cheese, Maine for lobster... but there’s just ...

The Mitchell Caverns: California's sacred caves

The Mitchell Caverns are not as large as those at Carlsbad, New Mexico, or as well known — but are local, every bit as dramatic, and come complete with a history made for movies. I ...
