One of the first things I do when I plan to go anywhere is look up all the food spots. Pike Place has more than 500 shops, restaurants, and bars. Eight local farmers started selling produce back in August 1907 and Pike Place Market is now the oldest continuously operating farmers’ market in the country. […]
Los Angeles, located in Southern California, is known for its film and television industry and all the food options they have to offer. This was our last stop on our 2 weeks California road trip. Since my husband and I both have been to Los Angeles, CA in the past, we decided to just do […]
Solvang was voted as the best Christmas town in America. This Danish village in California is filled must eat bakeries and restaurants.
The drive from San Francisco to Solvang is 6 hours and 15 minutes with no stop. We probably took about 8+ hours with all the stops we made. My husband is a real trooper for working from 6 AM to 1 PM and then driving the whole way to Solvang. We didn’t get to our […]

This national park is one of the oldest and most visited national parks for its waterfalls and granite formation. People recommend going during the Spring to see the waterfalls at their fullest, but […]
Sequoia are gigantic trees that can be over 200 ft tall and live longer than 3,000 years! However, with all the wildfire/climate changes, we are losing more and more of them. In August 2020, the Castle fire burned about 7K to 10K Sequoia trees which make up 10-14% of the entire population in the world. […]
We got a national park pass last year but had to cancel our trip due to Covid. So this year, we said we had to hit as many national parks as we can. We decided to do a California road trip and check off a couple of national parks. Our first national park stop was […]
