Save Place
Charles River Esplanade, Boston, MA, USA
When people bring out their folding adirondack chairs and fishing rods to the Charles River Esplanade, you know it’s spring, finally. And then you see rows and rows of cherry blossom trees that line up the river, and wish it was always springtime...
Save Place
119 Beach St, Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA 01944, USA
Boston boasts some of the best beaches around, many within easy reach. Singing Beach can be reached by MBTA and others within an hours drive are well worth the effort. Some are calm, with lake like water and other will have waves for surfers....
Save Place
645 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116, USA
We've all heard of the Old North Church, made famous by Paul Revere, but one of my favorite buildings in Boston is the Old South Church. The copper-clad cupola was inspired by the cupola atop the Basilica of St. Mark, in Venice. The mix of ornate...

550 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02116, USA
While I think you'll find the best New England clam chowdah right here in Boston, everyone has their favorite location to slurp it. Do you like it thick enough to hold a spoon upright or thinner with more broth, served in a bread bowl and loaded...
Save Place
24 Beacon St, Boston, MA 02133, USA
Love history? Then don't miss at least part of The Freedom Trail. Two and a half miles of 16 sites steeped in history make up Boston's version of the 'Yellow Brick Road.' This time, the brown bricks start at the Boston Common, and lead you on a...

110 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 1T2, Canada
A church—or, at least, a small chapel—has stood on the site of the Basilica of Notre-Dame since shortly after Ville-Marie (Montréal's predecessor) was founded in 1642. The current building, however, dates to 1829 and was...

4777 Avenue Pierre-De Coubertin, Montréal, QC H1V 1B3, Canada
While most people head to the Olympic Center solely for the quirky stadium, I am happy to report that besides the biggest white elephant Montreal has ever known (it took 35 years to pay the stadium off after the Olympic Games were over), there is...

1313 Disneyland Dr, Anaheim, CA 92802, USA
A trip to Disneyland at Christmas Time is a holiday tradition in my family. You'll sure be feeling jolly and ready for the holiday after strolling through the Happiest Place on Earth. This amusement park does it right. They add the perfect touch...

1313 Disneyland Dr, Anaheim, CA 92802, USA
Disney's California Adventure is right across from Disneyland and is worth the park-hopper pass. And if you're in town for long, the best deal would be an annual pass. I think California Adventure complements Disneyland very well in that it has...

6410 E Chapman Ave, Orange, CA 92869, USA
This restaurant is truly a gem in the fine dining scene of Orange County. Nestled atop Orange Hills, this restaurant offers breathtaking panoramic views of glamorous Orange County. To see it in all its illuminated glory, you'll have to visit...
Save Place
As the sun prepares to call it a day grab something tasty to roast, and head over to the Bolsa Chica State Beach fire pits. There aren't too many scenic beaches in Southern California that offer fire pits any more, so locals and visitors alike...
Save Place
Huntington Beach, CA, USA
I took this during the golden hour on Huntington Beach, when the light reflects and refracts off of so many surfaces. Surfers compete for good waves and the beach is full of spectators, children playing and families capturing snapshots. Parking...
Save Place
Long Beach, CA, USA
There are plenty of farmers' markets in Long Beach and it can be hard to choose which one to visit. Certified, easily walkable, and welcoming, each market has a vibe dependent on its friendly neighborhood host. The Harvest Farmers' Market on...

Mother's Beach, Long Beach, CA 90803, USA
Though Long Beach is better known for its harbors and ports, you can still get your beach fix here just south of downtown. Families should head to Mother’s Beach, on the south end of Long Beach, for a shore with calm waters. Stingrays are known to...

1049, 2030 E 4th St, Long Beach, CA 90814, United States
Much loved for their happy-hour specials, like ceviche or bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeños, Lola’s also serves up some of the best tacos and burritos in town. Try the Mole Verde Burrito or anything with the restaurant’s special green salsa. Owner...

1400 Pacific Coast Hwy, Seal Beach, CA 90740, USA
Don't say another word. You had me at “$25 All-You-Can-Eat at the Sushi Bar”. Served only at the bar, you need to be quick to snag your spot, as the all-you-can-eat only lasts for one hour (except for Monday & Wednesday, which lasts all night...

100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802, USA
Tour Long Beach Harbor for an up close and personal glimpse of dolphins, sea lions, and whales. This company also does special events, like the Hallowe'en "Boo Cruise" aboard the Harbor Breeze. Photo by Michele W/Flickr.

850 Avocado Ave, Newport Beach, CA 92660, USA
This pristine hilltop is even better than the scenic drive to get there. The walk up to the town may be difficult for some with health issues, but so worth trying. If you like photography the doors are all so unique, the vistas beautiful, and the...
Save Place
Piazza del Popolo, 70011 Alberobello BA, Italy
Nearing Alberobello you begin to see the cone shaped roofs made from carefully laid rocks. The tops with different designs perched on top designated the religion of the inhabitants. You can stay in one of these Unesco Heritige Site homes from long...

There’s no better place to take a surf lesson than Huntington Beach, California, also known as Surf City, USA. Here, at HB Surf School, if it’s your lucky day you’ll have your lesson with Bill Sharp, formerly a competitive surfer and coach of the...
Save Place
Newport Beach, CA, USA
I will probably be persona non grata around my hometown Newport Beach after this highlight. We have plenty of spots where you can get a $15 hibiscus mimosa or a $26 fennel salmon benedict, but good "greasy spoon" breakfasts are more rare. The...

333 E Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90802, USA
Refreshing retreat with harbor views. Beautiful location just one mile from the beach and minutes from the Aquarium of the Pacific.
