The Ultra Chocolate Tour of San Francisco was so not what we expected. We never could have guessed that gin & chocolate pair so well together. And then there were the chocolate covered crickets….
As a former cast member, I’m always trying to find ways to have more magical Disney World fun (as a grown-up) without breaking the bank. Well, I found my new favorite thing! I’ve designed a Disney World Resort Bar Crawl that uses FREE Disney transportation, doesn’t require a single park ticket, and is chock full of Disney fun! Plus, I’ve created a Disney Scavenger Hunt to go along with it – so that you can drink and complete ridiculous Disney challenges at the same time. It’s the most fun you can have outside of the parks as an adult at Disney World!
Paso Robles, California is the Central Coast’s answer to Napa. But there’s so much more than just world-class wine: there are also spirit distilleries and craft breweries galore, plus an incredible local food scene. I’m not going to lie: we went full lush in Paso Robles. It’s the booze tourist’s dream destination! Here’s where to get your drink on, and what to eat in between delicious tastings.
We’re San Francisco coffee snobs. Like, if it isn’t single-origin specialty coffee roasted to absolute perfection and brewed to order using a system of convoluted scientific-looking objects made out of glass and wood that takes at least 15 minutes longer than necessary to create, we just won’t drink it. 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 in an area of California called the Central Coast. There are no big cities there – nothing like a Los Angeles or a San Francisco, although the area sits exactly in between the two. Instead of bustling cities, what you’ll find is much quieter: about 200 miles of scenic coastline, plus hundreds of wineries, thousands of hiking trails, dozens of charming towns, a smattering of natural hot springs, and enough great food and beer to keep you occupied for months. The Central Coast offers everything from sugar-sand beaches and great surfing, to wine country, to adorable marine wildlife critters (otters! Seals! Sea lions!) and groves of Monarch butterflies flitting through delicious smelling eucalyptus trees, to sheer cliffs looking down on crashing waves. Here are 8 quintessential Central Coast getaways for your next Highway 1 road trip!
