Napa Valley: wine haven for chic city folk. If you’d like to retreat to the middle of nowhere with nothing to do but drink wine (and watch grapes shrivel), do so at the Vineyards in Napa. Yes, it’s in the middle of nowhere. But you’ll somehow feel connected to the city world since this is where they all come to escape.
When you think of budgeting for food in NYC, you probably think of unaffordable fancy restaurants. While NYC is an extremely expensive place with some fancy fine dining, you will be happy to know that it houses some great tasting cheap eats too.
There are plenty of popular cafes and coffee shops in Los Angeles (no surprise), but these ten are the most frequented by locals. Locals including myself and several of my good friends who have grown up, lived and worked in LA.
Rooftop pools are the best place to be during summer in Los Angeles, and the attire is so much more than a basic swimsuit. LA locals go all out with their looks. That plain black suit you wore to your aunt’s pool last summer just won’t do this time!
Rooftop pools in LA really are as chic as they say. Or maybe I’m just biased, but seriously. Once your eyes escape some of the plastic surgery victims gone wrong, views of the City, Hollywood Hills, colorful cocktails and super fit bodies will take over– it’s as real as the movies.
Every city has it’s own vibe, and man does Venice Beach have a unique one. Venice Beach, CA is the type of place where you’ll see artists and business people alike ride bikes along the boardwalk (a gorgeous curving sidewalk along the beach). It is one of the best places in LA to people watch, surf, shop and eat some incredible food. The activities here are endless if you love a good laid back beach.
La Paz is one of the most tranquil, breathtaking places in Mexico. Since it has somehow remained a low-key travel destination, the crowds are minimal and the nature is the center of attention.
I spent the trip with special people, relaxing on a boat as most people do who visit the area. Throughout the day we would pull off the main boat and onto the shore, stopping along the stunning Sea of Cortez beaches. I could give you a great list of things to do like kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, fishing and all those great activities that we did, but the best things here are more of an experience.
