Ultimate Guide to Santa Barbara, California

Teeming with squawking seagulls, salty air, and friendly locals, Santa Barbara is a lively town full of history and stunning architecture, yet far enough outside of Los Angeles to create a relaxing and slower paced atmosphere. I only had about a day and a half to spend in this coastal town, but that was more than enough time to make me fall in love.

Best Coffee Shops in Fort Lauderdale

Coffee shops today are stepping it up. Not only are they selling some fantastic coffee, but they’re also crafting a stellar ambiance in every detail of their store: from the chairs (or couches!) filling the floor space to the artwork on the walls and the even greater artwork of the entire building’s design (hello new Instagram pic!).

Where to Eat in Cambridge, MA

Cambridge has the best of both worlds: less noise and overwhelming sense of confusion than its larger neighbor cities, such as Boston (which is 3 miles away, easily accessible by train) may have.

Not to mention the presence of Harvard, which draws hundreds of young people (and their families who come to tour in large groups) throughout the year.

I’ve been to Cambridge several times, and each time there’s some place new to be discovered, a new coffee/tea/ice cream/dessert/meal to try, and old favorites to return to. Here are some places you need to try in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Continue reading “Where to Eat in Cambridge, MA”

Starting Spring at Florida’s Alexander Springs

The other week I ventured up to central Florida to visit some friends and go swimming at one of the natural springs in the area. I’d never been to the springs before, so I was super excited and not all sure of what to expect. I thought the water would be cold (I was right) and clearer than the ocean (which definitely helped the GoPro pics come out better). Continue reading “Starting Spring at Florida’s Alexander Springs”

Parrots squawking while perched on the shoulders of a local. The sweet smell of smooth Key Lime pie evident around every corner.
