Ask anyone from Nashville, Tennessee or have ever visited, and they will tell you, it’s a fun filled town, and you got to “honky tonk”! Just the name, which you have to admit, is fairly strange, makes you think of smoke filled bars, cheap drinks, drunk cowboys and loud music. Trust us, you can easily find this in a real country music town, and even in Nashville. But we want to expose you to some of the best music bars, so pull on those snakeskin boots and get ready to dance.

There are some fun “dive bars” out there in Nashville that are just part of its music history. Take for instanced the Tootsie Orchid Lounge, which was probably the most popular joint back when the Grand Ole Opry was at Ryman Auditorium a few doors down. It still today enjoys many long time customers, not only for fun times, awesome music, cold brews but the “no cover charge” at the door.

For a local favorite right on Honky Tonk Row, where awesome barbecue ads to the ambience of live music and booze, Rippy’s Smokin Bar & Grill should be your “go to” joint. If you want a break from the party, you can head upstairs to the outdoor patio, enjoy not only food service and cocktails, but the finest view of Lower Broadway in town.

Music lovers flock each year to Nashville for good reason, there’s never a shortage of live music in this great town. You can find country, soul, rock & roll, blues and country rock here, and a overload of fun.

  • San Diego morning

There are two certainties about San Diego, it enjoys almost perfect weather and beaches, and it’s a perfect destination for a romantic getaway. From its fantastic oceanfront communities with super restaurants, to quiet secluded beach access, if you can’t get your mates heart pounding here, they left it home. With no shortages in romantic ideas here, lets check out some of the most popular.

Forget the vehicle and board the water taxi at the boardwalk out across the San Diego Harbor to Coronado Island for the day. Coronado has long been the playground for the rich and famous, mainly because it’s the home of the Hotel Del Coronado. This iconic red roofed hotel was the location of the film classic, Some Like It Hot, with its famous love scenes. Today, just strolling about the halls, visiting the museum, you can feel the awe of this still popular destination. Not only is the cozy lounge a nice place to check out, especially during happy hour, with live music, but the outdoor patio is a great place too. You can sit together, enjoy a glass of vino, and watch the boats cruise by, when not gazing in each other’s eyes.

Planning for that exciting Los Angeles Vacation

Downtown Los Angeles

  • LA fun off the wall 2

With excitement building for your upcoming Los Angeles vacation, planning your time there will be key to a successful and fun vacation. Keep in mind that Los Angeles is in fact, one big fantasy experience! This is the land of Hollywood, designer beach bodies, boob jobs and Mickey and Minne Mouse. Keep in mind that L.A. proper is located in over 450 square miles, packed with people, and you the visitor are the minority.

That being said, before you even arrive you should already have your itinerary planned, for the most part. Of course, have flexibility, because you will probably meet someone there who gives you advise or perhaps something to see and do you never thought of.

There are excellent locations that you can visit multiple popular locations all in one day. Take for instance the famous Hollywood Sign located high on the mountain overlooking L.A. You can easily take a drive first thing in the morning, head down to Hollywood proper to walk stroll the “Walk Of Fame”, then shop o Rodeo Drive. Now keep in mind that you probably just want to “window shop” and people watch on the streets of this famous shopping destination. Prices are quite high for you and the celebrity shoppers, but there are moderate prices shops as well as restaurants for lunch. Deciding to “dine with the stars”, you can easily find a sushi lunch in the neighborhood for a few hundred dollars.

Events in SanDiego 01Another multi experience day can be spent on the shoreline, by taking a drive early in the morning down to Venice Beach. Stroll the shops along the boardwalk and find a super café for coffee and a bagel. When the street entertainers show up, walk about with your camera and get some great photos of them, and maybe a body builder at “Muscle Beach”. Its an easy drive up to the Santa Monica Pier for a swim in the waters off the beach, a ride on the famous Ferris wheel, seafood lunch and maybe a handful of cotton candy while hitting the rides.

For the outdoor extremist, a great alternative would be to rent a beach cruiser and biking the 22-mile concrete bike path from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach in Torrance County. It’s a beautiful bike trip, all along the Pacific Ocean, with plenty of stops along the way.
