Downtown Napa Art Walk

Over the past two decades, the downtown area of Napa has gone through a massive revolution. With the construction they put in place to stop the historic flooding in the area, it turned the riverfront part of Downtown Napa into a beautiful space you can both walk and bike ride along.

Rincon Park: Bow & Arrow Art and the Bay Bridge

Rincon Park in San Francisco is one of those places that would be a huge tourist attraction in virtually any other city but is only a mid level attraction in San Francisco. That’s not to say it isn’t awesome though; it’s just that the town has so many unique spots to visit that it is […]

Glass Blowing Classes at Half Moon Bay Art Glass

I have always found glass blowing to be a fascinating type of art. Basically, you are manipulating glass with fire to melt it into a shape you want it to be in, and doing something like that is just impressive. I didn’t ever think I would do glass blowing myself, but on a recent trip […]

Chumash Painted Cave State Park in Santa Barbara

Chumash Painted Cave State Park in the mountains that overlook Santa Barbara is a cool stop that will literally take you 15 minutes to see. It probably takes longer to drive up the hill from Santa Barbara then it does to see the state park. That being said, it was great to see how well-preserved the […]
