There's no shortage of (extended) day trip opportunities from Las Vegas. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay longer than a weekend, so I had to choose. The Grand Canyon, that was going to happen for sure!
Seattle is located in the north-west corner of the United States so you should expect some rain.
You could even expect it to rain every day if your timing's as lousy as mine!
Who would've thought late October could be so wet?
While it's not as impressive as New York, not as famous as Los Angeles, etc., I would recommend it over any other US city I've been to so far!
It is unique in many ways, it has a monotonous good weather you can rely on, a ton of those charming Victorian houses and a long list of attractions, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz.
Is Las Vegas, the biggest city in the Mojave Desert, every bit as wild as movies would have you believe?
While I haven't exactly gone all Hangover, I'm pretty sure the answer is a surrounding yes.
This is Sin City after all.
The city that never sleeps: for a tireless traveler as me, this sounds too promising to pass up. But where to even begin in a city that has so much to offer? My list was so long and we didn't even get to finish it. So here's a short list of things you must absolutely do or see.
California's Yosemite National Park, one of the first national parks, is magical with its enormous cliffs & domes, waterfalls & giant sequoia trees.
As I marvel the beauty of this place, I can't help but wonder what it must've been like for the first people to arrive in the valley.
On my trip to San Francisco, I got the chance to fly a Cessna over San Francisco by myself.
After about half an hour on the flight simulator, to get acquainted with some controls, we went out, inspected the plane, and I soon found myself a mile above San Francisco.
And the Golden Gate bridge. And Alcatraz.
Alcatraz, nicknamed The Rock, needs no introduction.
It has a reputation, it's a place of legends.
It's been featured in a ton of movies & tv series.
Naturally, it was at the top of my list when I was in San Francisco, and it did not disappoint!
