Harriman Springs Resort and Marina is an incredible place to stay if you are looking for accommodations around Crater Lake. Granted, it's an hour away from the park, but the resort ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. Crater Lake only has two hotels: Crater Lake Lodge and Mazama Village Campground & Cabins. I've heard that these two places get booked out months in advance and it was true for us. Both

I know a one-day itinerary seems very short for Crater Lake National Park, but it's totally possible. When you're on a short vacation, you want to fit in as much as possible, right? Luckily, I've done all the leg work for you. We actually planned to go in the day before, but by the time we got up and drove to the park, it was already 2:30 p.m. We also waited another hour because there

If you happen to have read my previous blog post, you would know that we stayed at the Venetian Hotel on Friday and Saturday night. We actually weren’t planning on staying Sunday night except our flight got cancelled so we opted to fly out the next day for a nice $200 flight credit

The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas currently has a special offer for essential workers where they are giving away a complimentary night with a minimum 2-night stay. In other words, buy one night and get one free. There are actually two essential workers in my immediate group of friends and they thought it would be nice to do a small relaxing Vegas trip. They booked for Friday night and ended up getting Saturday night for

This past Thursday, I was lucky enough to be invited to a Friends & Family event for a new pop-up restaurant in Hollywood called Fingers Crossed. It has taken over the old Luchini Pizza space and is now a beautiful open air garden-esque sit-down Italian pizza and pasta restaurant led by well-known L.A. chef Evan Funke. This will be Funke’s second restaurant after his first success, Felix Trattoria, located on Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice.
