See the Street Art in Freak Alley in Boise, Idaho

I was peacefully walking along the streets of downtown Boise when I caught a lazy bear wearing a golden crown staring me in the face. What do you want? Then, a big bellied patriotic man smoking a pipe and wearing red & white striped pants crossed my path. Where am I? The answer was Idaho’s whimsical Freak Alley. […]

Learn to Paddle Board. Oxnard Channel Islands Harbor, California.

I am clumsy. Tripping over mysterious bumps in the road and dropping seemingly slippery wine glasses is nothing new. So, when I decided to learn how to paddle board in the Channel Islands Harbor of Oxnard, California my first concern was how cold would the water be. My second? Would there be sharks? A road trip […]

Take a Helicopter Ride Into the Grand Canyon

After having traveled to Las Vegas a half a dozen times in the past couple years, on this current trip I was looking for something more than sparkling lights, feathered girls and dancing water fountains. Plus, it was my birthday, which absolutely warranted a unique adventure. And that was exactly what I found. The complete bonus was that the […]

Take a Photo Standing Under the Las Vegas Sign. Snapshot.

Take a Photo Standing Under the Las Vegas Sign The “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign is as representative of Sin City as the Bellagio fountain waterworks or a leggy burlesque show. It’s about a twenty minute walk from Mandalay Bay, but tourists, myself included, stand in line a dozen people deep for the opportunity to […]

Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride Over the Vineyards of Northern California

Recently, the Sonoma County Tourism Board in California chose me to be one of the next faces of Sonoma County and I was beyond thrilled to be representing the beautiful county that I call home. And that was way before knowing that one of the perks to being a representative (aka: a Sonomad) was a hot air balloon ride […]

Experience Rose. Rabbit. Lie. in Las Vegas

Rose. Rabbit. Lie. Huh? Even the mention of these three little words to the locals in Las Vegas gave a facial response of a familiar, yet quizzical look. The name had been on the tips of everyone’s tongues in Sin City, but not one person had a valid explanation for exactly what it was. I […]

Eat the California State Bird in San Francisco

Eating the California State bird? Isn’t that illegal? You’re not even allowed to pick the state’s poppy flower, are you? Technically, neither action is against the law, but there is something so wrong about consuming your home state bird. Yet, at San Francisco’s State Bird Provisions, there is also something so deliciously right. There are only a few states in America […]

Indulge in Fried Frog Legs & Alligator in Louisiana

It was a slow night at Tunk’s Oyster Bar. Today was the first day of squirrel season in Louisiana, evidently a big event in this part of Alexandria. Many local folks were probably at home cleaning their catch and making squirrel stew, instead of dining out. Unfortunately, squirrel is not served in restaurants, so eating that […]

Stand on an Inspirational Spot in…Idaho

While standing in an average Idaho strip mall parking lot, my back facing a TJMaxx, I was surprised by the inspiring scene in front of me. Looking to the left gave a glimpse of Perrine Bridge, a base jumpers magnet and to the right was the spot where daredevil Evel Knievel made his Snake River jump. Highly […]
