Birmingham Civil Rights Trail

I love traveling to visit historic sites. When I was a child, visiting historic sites, helped to expand upon what I learned from history class in school. Seeing the sites in person, brings a new perspective to what is learned in history books. As an adult, visiting historic sites, brings an even deeper meaning toContinue reading “Birmingham Civil Rights Trail”

An afternoon on the Northern Oregon Coast

While visiting Portland, Oregon last October, I took a drive out to the coast for the afternoon. I’ve dreamed of visiting the Oregon coast since I was young and watched the movie, Goonies. The Pacific coast is just so different than the Atlantic coast which I’m used to from living in Boston. I got aContinue reading “An afternoon on the Northern Oregon Coast”

Boston has many wonderful areas to enjoy a nice walk. One of these areas is the Commonwealth Avenue Mall.

Running into 2022 – NYRR Midnight Run

We are all very familiar with New York City’s Times Square New Years Eve celebration, but in a city so large, that is definitely not the only way to ring in the New Year! Why not ring in the New Year the healthy way by running 4 miles thru Central Park? That’s exactly what IContinue reading “Running into 2022 – NYRR Midnight Run”

Chasing Waterfalls Across the US in 2021

2021 was definitely a better travel year than 2020. It was a great year to explore more of my own country, since there were no restrictions to travel within the US.

Boston’s Holiday Market at Snowport

One of these years, I will make it over to Europe in December to visit some of the Christmas markets, but until then I’m glad that many cities in the United States have started their own Christmas Markets, including right here in Boston. Although not exactly the same as the Christmas Markets in Europe, itContinue reading “Boston’s Holiday Market at Snowport”

Donut Tour of Portland Oregon

When visiting a new city I like to take at least one tour while I’m there as you can learn about different things to see and do while on tours that you wouldn’t normally think about. Prior to visiting Portland Oregon this fall, I took a look at the tours that were offered and cameContinue reading “Donut Tour of Portland Oregon”

Chasing Waterfalls and Fall Foliage Along the Historic Columbia River Highway

When you think of great places to see the fall foliage in the United States, the New England states are probably the first places that come to most people’s minds. As someone who grew up and currently lives in New England, I definitely agree with this, but traveling has shown me there are so manyContinue reading “Chasing Waterfalls and Fall Foliage Along the Historic Columbia River Highway”

Ghost Tour at Virginia City’s Washoe Club

The great thing about traveling is it opens your eyes to the fact that there is history all over this world and with history comes the paranormal! History and ghost stories become intertwined telling the story of a location’s past. Virginia City, Nevada is located northeast of the capital of Nevada, Carson City and southeastContinue reading “Ghost Tour at Virginia City’s Washoe Club”

Milwaukee : Long Weekend in the Brew City

One of the most underrated cities for a great long weekend visit has got to be Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It has always been on my bucket list of cities to visit in the US and after a recent Labor Day weekend trip there, I’m so happy that I finally made it there. I actually cannot believeContinue reading “Milwaukee : Long Weekend in the Brew City”
