You really can't go wrong with an Orange County sunset. I make it a point to be by the ocean at least a few times a month for sunset, with or without a camera. You can see the pinks and blues from the 405, but where are the best spots in Newport Beach to see an EPIC sunset? Here are a few of my favorites.
How do you travel luxuriously with a full-time job, a budget, and limited time off? I constantly get asked this question by followers, friends, and even family. My question to you is: What do you consider luxury? If you expect to be chartered off in a yacht with Lil' Wayne and Dom Pérignon, whatever you read here probably won't satisfy your travel dreams. But if you can bend your budget and make the most of your holidays and weekends, you can create memories of a lifetime.
You do not have to be rich to travel cheap.

Every year, Christmas falls on December 25th. Every year, it seems to creep up earlier than you expect.

Laguna Beach is one of the most unique beach cities in Southern California. Nestled between Newport Beach and San Clemente, it is known for a vast art culture and exquisite cuisine. Its beaches are pristine, some with caves to go exploring and some with tide pools full of fish and wildlife. Picture perfect is what I like to call them; here are my favorites from North to South.
NoHo, short for North Hollywood, has a different vibe and feel than the rest of Los Angeles. Here you can experience the nuances of the new hipster generation as well as reflect on its dominance back in the 1970s. Let's be honest, Los Angelinos are proud of their hard work and they drive in luxury to show it. Take a ride in the fast lane with KIA's first GT (Gran Tourismo).
Growing up just a few hours away, I've always thought of Lake Tahoe as a winter destination myself. I have spent a few winters here sipping hot chocolate by the fire after a full day of skiing. However, summer is a whole different kind of fun – full of outdoor activities, lakeside beaches, hiking and exquisite mountain views.
The possibilities of summer activities in Lake Tahoe are endless! The aroma of pine trees and crisp mountain air follows you as you hike the Sierra Nevada mountains, kayak the large freshwater lake, or enjoy the fine dining the city has to offer.
New York City. The city of dreams, the city that never sleeps, the city that will knock you off your feet if you don’t have a plan. If you're on a time crunch and still want to hit all the major destinations, this guide will make sure you make the most of your short trip. So get in your best New York City mindset because the hustle is real and the energy of the city can get intense!
Once in a while, taking the long way is more rewarding and fulfilling. If traveling from Los Angeles to San Francisco, most people opt for the direct inland route of I-5 or the scenic route of I-101. However, neither of these routes are nearly as rewarding as taking the road less traveled and driving up the central coast on the beautiful California State Route 1. On my recent trip from LA to San Francisco, I decided to take the extra time to explore the California central coast on Highway 1, the highway that is described by many as the most scenic drive in America.
