Nantucket is located southeast of mainland Massachusetts. Tiny and quaint, this island has a ton to offer. Historically a whaling community, Nantucket has grown into one of the most well established tourist destinations, both nationally and internationally.
We first visited Nantucket seven years ago on our honeymoon and it didn’t take long for us to fall in love with all of its enchanting offerings.
With dreamy nautical views, cobblestone streets, five-star lodging and world-class dining, Nantucket has something to offer for everyone.
Many choose to visit during the warmer summer months, but this post is a testimony to the festive charm that decorates the island during that beloved first weekend in December.
Nestled into the Sierra Nevada mountains is a vast hidden treasure known as Lake Tahoe.

Regardless of what you may know Lake Tahoe for, one thing that can't be denied is it's picturesque views and beautiful, diverse landscape. Take a look at just a few images that will help you understand why we recommend that your next trip be at Lake Tahoe, especially this winter.

Where & Why
On our recent fall California road trip we had the opportunity to witness some of the most scenic vistas in the US along the Pacific Coast Highway in Monterey County. We had done plenty of homework planning (check out more of our planning process here) our route and we found that the Monterey section of the PCH was known to be one of the prettiest, so we didn't want to miss out!
The beauty and awe of experiencing Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is something that is truly something that should be on everyones bucket list of experiences. From the largest tree in the world to the breathtaking mountain vista views there is really no other place like it on earth.
Located close to the North Sea on the central, eastern shores, near the Firth of Forth, Edinburgh, Scotland is the second largest city in Scotland. Edinburgh is compiled of hills and scenic views making it a highlighted stop for many travelers, historians and tourists.
July 4th is certainly one of those great days of the year! It's filled with the excitement of family, friends, grilling, warm scenery, and of course highly anticipated fireworks displays that every youngster (and let's admit it, adults alike) in America, find themselves marveling at as the day rolls to an end. With so much excitement surrounding the day it sometimes hard to believe that more times than not many of us find ourselves saying "what do you want to do this year?" Here is a list we put together of optional things that you and your loved ones can do to highlight this monumental day in our country's history.
This post combines arguably two of my MOST favorite things. 1) Jo and I's highly anticipated annual wedding anniversary long weekend getaway and 2) the magically unique place of Seabrook Island, South Carolina. I simply cannot put into words how much I look forward to the dream-like and romance-filled time that surrounds Memorial day weekend. This year marked that we had made it to the big THREE! It seems like just yesterday we made our vows, exchanged rings and embraced as husband and wife under the scenic live oaks at a family home in Beaufort, North Carolina (you can check out the full wedding post here).
We went to Austin back in 2015 and it is still lingers as one of our favorite towns. We had such a blast in just a short amount of time! You can read about our full road trip story on our Blog Post. Since this place holds such a special spot in our hearts we wanted to write a 48 hour, "can't miss" guide to your visit so you don't miss a thing in the Capital, Live Music City in the heart of Texas!
