Maui, Hawaii • The Road to Hana is Paved in Coconut

At first glance, Coconut Glen’s may appear to be your regular run of the mill rainbow colored, lawn ornament splattered, side of the road stand, but it is much, much more. In every photo we took, we’re smiling from ear to ear, a result of a strange but beautiful experience.  First off, their coconut ice cream…

New York City • Brunch Like a Southern Gentleman

Two words… Biscuit. Bomb! This delectable mainstay at Chelsea’s Tipsy Parson is comprised of a buttermilk-chive biscuit, stuffed with homemade sausage and local cheddar, and it’s as good as it sounds. For brunch, they also make a mean burger, chicken & waffles hushpuppies and shrimp & grits. Whether you’re from the South and missing that…

Zambia • Swim at the Top of a 32-Story Waterfall!

Victoria Falls.  A natural wonder that’s naturally at the top of everyone’s bucket list. But did you know that you can swim at the top of it? Yes, it sounds completely insane, but there is an infinity pool on top of the 32-story falls. The Devil’s Pool was formed after years of erosion created a rock wall…

Portland, Maine • A Dance Floor You’ve Never Seen Before

“That place is a hidden gem. It’s definitely a local hangout. You won’t find another bar like it.”  That’s what a friend told us after we spent the night at Bubba’s Sulky Lounge in Portland, Maine.  Voted one of the best dive bars in America, Bubba’s is like nothing you’ve ever seen. If the light…

Boston • It’s Swing Time

When you were a kid, there was nothing better than spending a summer day outside; swinging on swings and playing games with friends. Sadly, one day we all became adults and this past time faded into a sweet memory. Thankfully, some innovative people in Bean Town decided to convert some empty space in South Boston into what…

Oaxaca • Mexico’s Petrified Waterfalls

Hierve el Agua, the calcified waterfalls southwest of Oaxaca City and southeast of Mitla are not only a gorgeous sight but also make for an engrossing geology lesson. Mineral water dribbling over the cliff edge for thousands of years has created mineral formations that look like huge frozen waterfalls. There are currently two that you can…

New York City – Presidential Party Headquarters

Nestled in the lowest part of Manhattan, Fraunces Tavern has been operating as an American Colonial Tavern since 1762, making it older than the country itself! This also makes it the oldest bar in New York City. The tavern looks great for it’s age though, considering it has played a prominent role in pre-Revolution, American Revolution and…

Sedona, Arizona – The Devil You Don’t Know…Yet

Many people have written about hiking Devils Bridge, and for good reason. Sedona’s largest natural sandstone arch is absolutely breathtaking! Now that I’ve done it myself though, I can say I politely disagree with many of the assessments I read before going. Everyone is right about one thing, you cannot easily drive your car down…

Montana – Dive in With Mermaids

Mermaids.  Once thought to be just the stuff of fairy tales.  Currently residing in Great Falls, Montana…in a motor inn…inside a tiki bar…in (once again, let it sink in) Montana.  Sound unbelievable?  It almost is, but read on skeptics! The Sip ‘n Dip Lounge is certainly one of a kind, and has been since the…
