There is something magical about hot air balloons, especially when you can can see several all at once.  Once a year Temecula Valley hosts a hot air balloon festival.  This event is so fun it is something that you should experience once in your life.  This year was the 35th year of the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival. It is held at Lake Skinner Regional Park and is a three day festival where you can try wines from Temecula Valley, ride hot air balloons and enjoy the weekend with friends and family.

Have you ever wanted to stay in someplace haunted but that wasn’t too scary? You can now!  The Queen Mary recently renovated the most haunted Stateroom on the ship, room B340.  It hadn’t been used in 30 years since the 1980’s and in April on Friday the 13th they have made it available for guests to stay the night.  My friend Bridget and I were one of the first guests to stay in room B340 and it was a lot of fun.  Bridget and I love all things spooky and scary, we love going on ghost adventures where we can ghost hunt and explore the paranormal.
