A road trip is something everyone should be doing now. I have been doing all up and down the coast in California but I forgot how close Arizona is and how many beautiful things there are to visit there. I recently drove to Mesa, Arizona, it’s my first trip outside of California since the pandemic started and I’m happy I went. If you follow me on Instagram you know I love doing hikes and outdoor activities and Arizona has so much of that. Mesa also offers a fun activity called the Fresh Foodie Trail, they have mapped out all the best things to try in Mesa and surrounding cities. It only took us four and a half hours from LA to Mesa, the drive is so beautiful and easy. If you are like me and are not ready to get on a plane yet pack your bags, get in your…

If you have been wanting to take a little getaway I know where your next trip should be. Head over to Carlsbad, Ca. It’s just north of Downtown San Diego.

One of my favorite getaways is Palm Springs/Palm Desert and I am declaring myself a Palm Springs Expert. I have stayed at almost every hotel in the Palm Springs area. I try all the restaurants, bars and know all the best places to see and shop at. Growing up in California Palm Springs has always been a place we can go to because it’s a short drive. It’s also a place you can go to if you want to go for a week, weekend, or just for a night. I spent 24 hours here and I’ll tell you what I did. Palm Springs has so many cute hotels and they range from big resorts, family hotels, to cute boutique hotels. I like staying at all of them one of the hotels I have stayed at several times is Hotel Paseo. It’s a cute hotel that is located in the heart…
