Ojai, California

Oh Ojai, a little charming town, usually overshadowed by its neighbor Santa Barbara. Tucked into a valley at the base of the mountains, an hour and half north of Los Angeles, and 45 minutes east of Santa Barbara, Ojai feels like a whole different world from these major cities. Ojai Valley Inn is the main … More Ojai, California

Ferry Building

The Ferry Building in San Francisco does not get enough kudos for all of the food vendors it has to offer. Usually when I go to a market or food hall of some kind I expect a fair amount of vendors, but the Ferry Building was huge and packed with lots of great options.  Plus … More Ferry Building

Schaffer’s Mill

Admittedly I am not a very good millennial, I do not currently have an Amazon Prime account, I prefer driving and even parking in LA than taking a ride share, and I am not a big AirBnB fan. I am not very trusting of online “rentals” in general when traveling, which is very opposite of … More Schaffer’s Mill

Napa Farmhouse Inn

Napa could definitely be considered one of the capitals of the hotel market. There are endless top rated hotels to choose from, all with their own inviting aesthetic, relaxing spas, and delicious restaurants. Even hough every year multiple new hotels continue to open, they all stay booked, busy, and expensive. Although almost every one of … More Napa Farmhouse Inn

Oxbow Market

I am always a sucker for a “cafeteria style” indoor market with a long line of food stalls, no matter how touristy it may seem. Napa’s Oxbow Public Market did not disappoint as it introduced me to one of the best beef sandwiches I have ever tried from the delicious Five Dot Ranch and Cookhouse’s … More Oxbow Market

Eveleigh

A farm to table restaurant on the Sunset Strip, an interesting combination! The Sunset Strip is more known for classic Hollywood clubs and dive bars also acting as late night music venues, but tucked away along this iconic street is the cozy and tasty restaurant Eveleigh. I am a huge fan of any place that … More Eveleigh
