Where to Rediscover Summer Right Now

If you ask me, there truly is no better season than summer. Sure, spring is nice, with flowers abloom, fall is fun with its football-filled weekends … but well, don’t even get me started on winter. For warm weather fans like me, summer never loses its luster with its relaxed style and carefree attitude. Doesn’t slipping on a pair of flip-flops and leaving the coat behind sound appealing? Why not make it a reality? Instead of spending another night attempting to stay warm with the help of a cozy blanket, cup of hot cocoa and a... more

The Roaming Gnome Heads to South Bend, IN

Hello my fellow travel lovers! Roaming Gnome here, packing up and hitting the road for my next big ESPN College GameDay experience, one of my most beloved travel traditions. And where am I going this weekend you might ask? None other than South Bend, Indiana – the home of the infamous Fighting Irish of Notre Dame — as their men’s basketball team takes on the North Carolina Tar Heels. Whether I’ll be wearing green and gold or white and blue completely depends on my coloring come Saturday morning (a proper Gnome must... more

Planning Your Trip to Alcatraz Island

A trip to SoCal isn't complete without taking the time to visit Alcatraz Island. We've partnered with lifestyle blogger (and California resident) Pattie Cordova from Living Mi Vida Loca to get her expert advice on making the most of your trip here.  San Francisco is about a six hour drive from our home in Southern California. Even so, we’ve only been there a handful of times – but each of those times has been a completely new experience. I love the city of San Francisco so much that at one point in my life, the Hubster and I... more

Things to Do in Santa Clara and the Silicon Valley

This weekend, travelers will be descending on California’s Bay Area to attend and take part in the festivities around the “big game.” And while most people are familiar with the many attractions of San Francisco - like Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and the famous cable cars - fewer people are likely to know much about Santa Clara and the South Bay - where the big game is being held. But just because the South Bay is less well-known as a tourist destination doesn’t mean that there isn’t a wide array of unique and... more

Adrenaline Rush: Cancun Style

An afternoon relaxing by the beach is fun … until it gets boring. Don’t get me wrong, I love soaking up rays while being served tropical drinks poolside as much as the next traveler, but there’s something about coming back home with a handful of heart-pounding adventures that really makes a vacation unforgettable. Last summer was one of these such times. Traveling to Cancun for the first time to attend a friend’s wedding, I saw the perfect opportunity to not only experience the all-inclusive lifestyle amid fabulous... more
