  • Times Square

    New York City Things to Do

    It's a magical place. There's an ocean of lights and animated billboards; colours and images flow vertically up the side of the great buildings that surround the square. It's enough to grab the attention of any passerby, and the square gets plenty of those: the population of a small European capital city walks through every day. It's a magical...

    New Orleans Things to Do

    Bourbon Street is the core of New Orleans' nightlife. It is a street that runs the length of the historic French Quarter, and is lined with bars, nightclubs, and souvenir shops. For parents traveling with children - beware - there are also a number of strip clubs along Bourbon Street that are not discreet in their advertising. Bourbon Street has...

  • Cafe du Monde

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Everybody wants to try a beignet here and rightly so. Café Du Monde is large and open 24 hrs so there really is no excuse. But be warned - three beignets are enough for two - we bought three more to take home and eat later. Still good, but not the same. In April 2013, two café au laits and six beignets cost under $12. Great place to people watch...

    Orlando Things to Do

    I am not a Furry Potter--I mean Harry Potter-- fan in the slightest, but I still thought the Harry Potter World at Universal was pretty cool, other than the the throngs of people it attracts. The town is so authentic the wood is real wood, the stone is real stone, no plastic junk here. Even the butterbeer is real butterbeer, but only if you pay $5...

  • Planet Hollywood

    Orlando Restaurants

    My family & I have loved Planet Hollywood for years, but we will NEVER go back again! The prices have increased dramatically. We are a family of six and our bill was over $212.00! This bill is not the result of any alcohol (we do not drink at all) and four of us ordered waters. I asked the waiter if Planet Hollywood did anything for birthdays since...

    Cancún Things to Do

    It´s a couple of hours by car from Cancun, but I think that it's impossible to skip its visit. Chichen-Itza it's popular worldwide, and it would be silly not to visit it, being so close. So, have swim in the early morning (great!) visit Chichen-Itza, and have another late swim to receive the night (even better)

  • La Parilla

    Cancún Restaurants

    Our taxi drops us just about 2 feet from the entrance to La Parilla in Cancun. Talk about curbside service. Enter into an open air borderline outdoor restaurant, as the walls are not exactly walls but shaped and curled cut outs of wrought iron. It was late for lunch, about 3 pm, but the restaurant was still pretty full. Our friendly waiter took our...

    Key West Things to Do

    Get your photo taken at the southernmost point of the continental USA. We got there in the afternoon, and the sun was behind us and it was hard to take a good pic. If you want a better photo, get there in the early morning. There will be less people too.

    Key West Restaurants

    This is just the kind of funky local place Boyd and I love to find! The outside seating area is covered by sails to protect from sun and rain, and there is a small stage for music. We went for breakfast, and it was great - chickens running between the tables (chickens seem to roam free all over KW). Loved the gift shop - t-shirts and postcards, but...

    Los Angeles Things to Do

    I'm sure most people, at least in the US, are aware of what Universal Studios is. So, I'm not going to go into great detail, but I will say that the amount of detail and effort put into the attractions is impressive and, for many people this is quite a trip. I'm not a huge fan of expensive tickets, tourist activities and long lines. That said, I...

  • In-n-Out Burger

    Los Angeles Restaurants

    Last visit November, 2012 Californians are passionate about their In-N-Out Burger's, the drive thru is always stacked with cars, there is always a line inside with people waiting patiently for their orders. I usually find myself at In-N-Out at least once when I'm in So Cal and this trip was no exception, there was one just up the street from my...

    Playa del Carmen Things to Do

    The second part of 5th is wider than the first part and has less people milling about. The stores and eateries in the part seem to have a higher standard. Competition for souvenirs is little so the first part is probably where you will get the better deal. Definitely good for a relaxing stroll away from the crowds and the beaches are much better...

    Playa del Carmen Restaurants

    As other post have mentioned it is truly a full, non-claustrophobic cave. From the street it doesn't look like much but as you enter there was a statue-like man dressed in full traditional costume. He startled my 13 year old but she just laughed it off. As you walk down the stairs you notice that it is muggy but not uncomfortable at all. We just...

    Vancouver Things to Do

    Stanley Park was opened in 1888, named after Lord Stanley, the Governor General of Canada at the time. It is a must-see in Vancouver, heavily visited by tourists as well as locals! The Park itself is huge, having some 404 hectares (1001 acres). The views from Stanley Park are gorgeous at any time of year. I visited in January and still loved the...

After that, I handed him my credit card for payment. Then he came back and told me that sometimes credit cards from Brazil are not accepted. An absurd! because I used the...

    Montreal Things to Do

    This lovely city hall building was built between 1872 and 1878. Located right across the street from Place Jacques Cartier it is right by the Champ de Mars. The balcony is where Charles de Gaulle uttered the words Vive le Québec Libre!" ("Long live free Québec!") which helped to strain relations with the Canadian government. Hours- 9 am-4 pm...

    Montreal Restaurants

    My brother in law had really talked up the 'smoked meat' of Montreal, so it was a 'must try', on our visit here. We ordered the smoked meat sandwich on rye, with a sides of chips, coleslaw and cherry cola to drink. The meat is just like corned beef that we make at home, nicely salty, but hardly a hint of smoky taste. The coleslaw was a good...
