Devil’s Chair Hike in Devil’s Punchbowl County Park

After hearing about the beautiful geography and interesting hiking trails in Devil’s PunchBowl County Park I finally set out to experience it myself. About an hour and a half from LA and from the Inland Empire, this county park, located in the city of Pearblossum, is a gem that I would highly recommend you seek […]

Schooner or Later Cafe in Long Beach CA

Over the weekend I headed down to Long Beach to check out the travel show. Having not spent much time in Long Beach I headed over to TVFoodMaps to see what restaurants were recommended by some of the best food shows on TV. From this list I narrowed it down to Schooner or Later which is right on the […]

Slot Canyon in Anza Borrego State Park

With over 30 years of history, the Live Oak Canyon Christmas Tree Farm has been a draw for families in the Inland Empire for decades.

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 […]

La Jolla: San Diego’s Best Kept Secret

Since I myself am based in Southern Califronia, by far the easiest sites to travel to for me are the ones in the southern part of the state. San Diego, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, etc are all within two hours from my house. Because of this I often find myself making my way down to […]

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens Review

As I travel around California, I am always on the look out for something that is completely unique. This is why I find so much enjoyment in places like Salvation Mountain or even the Lucha Libre Taco Shop. I feel that creating something that is cookie cutter is hardly ever worth it, that is why […]

LA Union Station, Downtown Los Angeles

As part of  my recent trip to Los Angeles riding public transportation, I am doing a special post on LA Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. Union station is a really cool place to visit in and of itself, whether ridding in via train, bus, car or by foot. The station has a unique history that […]

Mission Inn Festival of Lights in Riverside, CA

By far, my favorite time of the year is the fall season. For us in Southern California, the fall season doesn’t normally mean the changing of colors or dramatic temperature loss, but it does give way to the many great traditions that make me excited for this time of year. Ever since moving to Riverside […]
