While a trip to Tahiti for a weekend is out of the question, the adventure does not have to be. Take a day trip from L.A. to La Jolla and you'll come back more relaxed, more tan, and more fulfilled.
Orange County is known for its beautiful beaches and pristine neighborhoods. Its parks and beaches are extremely well kept due to the county's strict regulations which sometimes excludes your fluffy pal. They are definitely there to preserve nature, but responsible dog owners often have a tough time finding outdoor places for their beloved pets to smell fresh grass, play in the sand, or mark their 'territories'. However, there are still some hidden spots in Orange County to bring your best friend to roam everywhere and smell everything!
Park City, only a 45-minute drive from Salt Lake City, is home to some of the best ski resorts and snow-covered mountains in the country. So, we booked a weekend trip to Utah for an early Valentine's Day celebration and the city welcomed us with incredible adventures, small town charm, and an abundance of snow. Check out my guide to Park City complete with things to do from day to night!
Resolution of 2018: Travel as much as possible to destinations I have never been to. Is it possible? Sure. Is it probable considering financial budgets, career priorities, and limited time? Well, I'd like to think so.
These destinations may not be exotic islands in the Atlantic Ocean where you can swim with pigs or slay dragons from the top of a castle, but they are perfect for simple weekend adventures. For travel enthusiasts and weekenders alike, consider one if not a few of these if you want to rule your breaks this year.
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.
