When people think of the Bay Area’s amazing food scene, they typically think of San Francisco.

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!

Louisville, Kentucky is the city where I was born and raised, and although I’ve traveled all over the world, I’ve never found anywhere quite as special. Louisville is more than just a world class city brimming with art, culture, food, bourbon, and the friendliest people you’ll meet anywhere. Halloween season is one of the best times of the year to visit Louisville. It’s not just the crisp autumn air and crunchy colorful leaves that brings me back year after year, but also unique autumn festivals and events (like a massive Jack O’Lantern immersive art experience) an incredible array of terrifying haunted houses (Halloween in Louisville is SO EPIC), yummy autumn bourbon tasting, and gorgeous scenic drives and walks through some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the USA. Here’s why you need to celebrate Halloween in Louisville, Kentucky!
