Good times at Disneyland & Disney California Adventures

My son and I recently had the chance to visit Disneyland. I have been to Disney World a couple of times, but this was my first visit to Disneyland in California. I kind of expected it to be very similar to Disney World, and some things were the same, but there are a lot of differences too. When you visit Disneyland, you are within walking distance to Downtown Disney, Disneyland and Disney California Adventures. We chose to go right to Disney California Adventures because we wanted to see Cars Land! We went right to the line for a fast...

Southern California: A great place to wind down

After my recent visit to New York City, I was ready to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet! Having never been to the West Coast before, I wasn’t sure what to expect on my visit to Los Angeles and San Diego, but I was looking forward to it!

Visit the place movies are made: Universal Studios Hollywood

I was pretty excited to visit Universal Studios Hollywood. I am a movie fanatic, and to visit the place where so many movies are actually made is pretty exciting. I had to educate Kellen about some classic movies like King Kong and Jaws before we went on the Studio Tour, and he was pretty interested to see it all too. Since the Studio Tours was at the top of our list of things to do, we went straight to it. There was a long line but it was only about a half hour wait and it was totally worth...

The Westin Los Angeles Airport

I am currently enjoying the good life at The Westin Los Angeles Airport. This is a beautiful hotel near LAX, that boasts well kept rooms with very comfortable beds and a few of the airport (not a bonus for everyone, but it certainly made Kellen happy). The shuttle from LAX to The Westin (and vice versa) comes every twenty minutes.  The hotel has an outdoor pool and hot tub on the third floor, and a main floor restaurant called The Daily Grill that you can eat in or order room service from. The hotel staff have been extremely pleasant...

Things you should know about New York City

I visited New York City for the first time last week. I am a small town girl and I will always prefer the quiet life to the busy city, but it is fun to visit the big city once in awhile. Here are some things I learned about New York City: The people are not rude, at least not that I noticed. The traffic is CRAZY! I would never in a million years drive in New York City, and I would rather not ever be in a shuttle bus there again. It is expensive to eat in their restaurants...
