Sun Valley, Idaho

Although I have gotten to know my apartment walls very well over the last few months, getting to spend some time in the great outdoors was a much needed refresh. The states making up the mountain west region in the U.S. seem to have shot up in appeal in 2020. I’ve heard from a lot … More Sun Valley, Idaho

Town of Paia

The little town of Paia in Maui is known for a lot of things. It’s the last main town before the start of the Road to Hana, it has the very popular Paia Fish Market, some adorable shops, the highly regarded Mama’s Fish House, “Jaws” the very intense surf spot, and Ho’okipa Beach, aka Turtle … More Town of Paia

I learned about the Mill House after falling into a deep internet search while looking up restaurants in Maui, and I feel like this place should be getting a lot more attention.

Cookie heaven and the perfect place to … More Front Street

A close second is for best mileage perks, but if you’re like me and don’t quite travel often enough to earn significant miles on airlines, you have what feels like 500 different airline accounts and spread out miles. When … More Hawaiian Airlines

Belmond El Encanto

For me, the sign of a true resort town is the quality hotels they have to offer that make it a great destination spot. Santa Barbara has its own charm, laid-back style, beautiful stretch of beaches, and some of the best hotels around. One of my favorite Santa Barbara hotels is the Belmond El Encanto. … More Belmond El Encanto

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
