Alcatraz Island – one of the quintessential tourism experiences in San Francisco. I wasn’t really sure what to expect since this was my first time experiencing the tour.

This weekend we finally found some time to head out to the Oakland Zoo. Since it was Black Friday, we figured the zoo would be quiet (which is was for the morning at least), so off we went. There were somethings that were really great and other things we really didn’t care for. Here is the […]

A Day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

February 21, 2018 No Comments

A couple of weeks ago, we took a trip out to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Located in the more touristy cannery row area of Monterey Bay, it was a bit of a long drive but overall, well worth it. The Aquarium is so unique and every nook and cranny is a small peak into […]
