Getaway To One of The Best Florida Beaches & Islands: Amelia Island

Amelia Island’s Fernandina beach has become one of my absolute favorite Florida beaches! The island is 13 miles long and sits just over an hour south of two other favorite low country beaches located to the north in Georgia: Jekyll Island and St. Simons Island. We have stayed at the SPG Westin Property on Jekyll Island and can highly recommend it as well.

Five Reasons to Dine at Novo Restaurant & Lounge When Visiting San Luis Obispo

When researching best restaurants in San Luis Obispo, Novo Restaurant & Lounge will likely come up in the top of any search result. Due to land slides in Big Sur, we had to change our itinerary a bit from our initial plans. Knowing this, I really wanted to be sure our dinner included a stop in San Luis Obispo to give this downtown SLO restaurant a try. Thankfully, we successfully made it to SLO by dinner and enjoyed a fabulous and relaxing meal at Novo Restaurant & Lounge. 

Weekend In Hilton Head, SC: Beaches, Bikes, and Bites

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, first and foremost means BEACH! The beach is  wide with plenty of space for the kids to play while you sun or dip in the ocean. Though we have never vacationed there in the peak seasons, I imagine even in busy times there is plenty of room for everyone.  Despite being sunny while there, we had winds that were gusting between 10 and 20 mph so we were unable to do any swimming.   Friday and Saturday were beautiful, and we had plenty of opportunities to participate in my other two favorite activities at Hilton Head Island:  BICYCLING AND FOOD!
