When I told my husband I wanted to take a romantic weekend getaway to Memphis, Tennessee, he was like, “why?” I suppose Memphis isn’t exactly the first destination on the list of romantic weekend getaways in the USA. But what could be more romantic than stuffing our faces with BBQ and hanging out with ducks in a hotel? (Yes, y’all. Ducks.) As it turns out, Memphis is TOTALLY RAD. I can’t believe I lived a few hours away from it my whole life and never visited! We spent 48 hours in Memphis having the time of our lives and we can’t WAIT to go back. We’ve created a weekend itinerary for Memphis that will have you dancing through Memphis all weekend long!

We asked a local barista friend for his list of the 10 best coffee shops in San Francisco that are up to our snobby standards. Bonus FREE map included!
I grew up on the Central Coast in California. The Central Coast offers everything from scenic vistas and stunning outdoor beauty, to foodie finds, a booze traveler’s dream destination, and adorable marine wildlife critters (like adorable otters, harbor seals, and sea lions). Sadly, this part of California is relatively unknown outside of the state. As such, my wife seems to think that the Central Coast must be either Norcal or SoCal. Let the record stand: the Central Coast is it’s own thing. And it’s AWESOME.

If you haven’t explored Oakland as a foodie (I see you, people who only come to Oakland for Warrior’s games), here’s a complete list of our favorite restaurants in Oakland to get you started on your next trip to the Bay Area!
