Saguaro National Park: One Day Itinerary

Just outside the city of Tucson, Arizona a small National Park preserves some of the coolest cacti you will ever see. Saguaro National Park was established in 1994 and is divided into two sections – east and west. The saguaro cactus that you see there is native to the Sonoran Desert, do not grow anywhere else in the world and can get up to 75 feet tall! I spent an entire day exploring the park […]

Hotel McCoy: Tucson’s First Art Hotel

This post is in collaboration with Hotel McCoy, but all thoughts and opinions about my stay are my own. Nestled among five mountain ranges and the Sonoran Desert, Tucson, Arizona is a city brimming with amazing food, art and culture. Most people probably don’t venture so far south in the Grand Canyon State, but if you haven’t experienced this hidden gem of a city, you need to put it on your travel list immediately. I […]

We saved it for last (well, my last day – I went to Universal our last day and my travel companions went back to Magic Kingdom) and it was so quiet that we rode everything in an hour! Which is why, unless the lines at Pandora are […]

Is Hollywood Studios the BEST park at Disney World?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Hollywood Studios is Disney’s best park at the moment. Yes, Magic Kingdom is the classic park that everyone HAS to visit, Epcot has the culture and food, but Hollywood Studios has the best theming and more “grown-up” rides. I’ve only visited this park twice – once when it was MGM and I was a kid and remember nothing that was there. Then again […]

How We Spent One Day in Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom is probably the most popular of all the Disney parks. All the iconic rides and sights are there – Cinderella’s Castle, It’s A Small World and the mountain rides. In non-COVID times, it’s also the best place to meet the characters or dine with them, however none of that is going on right now but you’ll still be able to see some characters from a distance! I spent one day in the park […]
