Watts Towers in Los Angeles: History, Tours and Pictures

The Watts Towers is one of the those places I knew very little about before actually making the visit. It kept coming up whenever I would do research on the best places to see in LA but there was not a lot of information or photos on it other then just recommendations to go check […]

Randy’s Donuts in Los Angeles

One of the staples of LA that is located right next to LAX is Randy’s Donuts. Randy’s Donuts has long been featured in movies and become a go to place for anyone visiting the area, not to mention locals that have grown accustomed to their well crafted donuts. At one minute off the freeway it […]

The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe in Redlands

Like many others, I started this new year out with a diet; however, like all good diets, it had to eventually end. For me that end was Tuesday and the one thing I had been craving during the entire month of nothing but veggies was a nice slice of pizza. Enter The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe in […]

California’s National Parks and National Monuments

From this list I narrowed it down to Schooner or Later which is right on the […]

Stone Brewing Co. Brewery Tour: Escondido, CA

By far one of my favorite places to visit, eat and hang out in Southern California is at the Stone Brewing Co. in Escondido. This place is so much more then a brewery with its gardens, bistro food and tour of the brewery itself. Since I am such a fan of this place I am […]
