Elephant Super Car Wash

The Elephant Super Car Wash was first established in 1951. The rotating Elephant sign is a very well known landmark to the residents of Seattle and lights up in beautiful bright neon colors at night. Seeing a car wash service in the middle of Seattle took me by surprise with the reputation they have for []

City of Angels

Los Angeles, also known as the City of Angels, is unlike most typical big cities in that it’s quite spread out as opposed to being compressed within a small geographical region. Public Transportation is certainly improving, but you really need to have access to a car to be able to truly experience this great city. []

Happy Holidays

Wishing everyone happy holidays. It’s sunny and 70 degrees out here, in Southern California. Hope you’re keeping warm where ever you are in the world.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

When I was in Colorado visiting family last, I was fortunate to be able to experience Red Rocks Park on a beautiful Fall day. Red Rocks Park is just outside of Denver, Colorado and is home to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Many legendary performances from famous bands like the Beatles, U2, Dave Matthews Band, Coldplay, []

Pike Place Market

Most people who visit Seattle don’t realize that The Pike Place Market is more than a century old. The Market first opened for business on August 17, 1907 and is one of the main draws in the beautiful Emerald City. If you love fish, Pike Place Fish is the place to go. The original Starbucks []

5th Avenue, Seattle

Walking down 5th avenue in Seattle is a lot of fun with all the cool mom and pop shops, cafes, and restaurants. If you’re feeling courageous you can take a glass blowing class at the Seattle Glass Blowing Studio, or grab a bite to eat at the Opaline Bakery next door and watch the glass []

Kerry Park

As the sun sets over Puget Sound, the last direct sun light of the day reflects onto the Seattle skyline and gives the buildings a radiating glow that is absolutely stunning to experience. This happens only for a few minutes before the sun disappears beyond the horizon. Don’t plan on leaving right after the sun []

Blurred Lines

Seattle is one city I could keep going back to and never get sick of. If you go in the summer months, you’ll be greeted with the most beautiful blue skies, weather in the mid 70’s, and no humidity. It’s infamous for its rain and gloomy skies, but there’s certainly no shortage of character or []

Big Wheel

My wife and I have a tradition of going to the Orange County Fair every year. If the deep fried (insert food item of choice) wasn’t reason enough to go, the photography exhibit is absolutely worth the price of admission. It is such a wonderfully curated gallery of fine art photographs. The main attraction that []

Fulton Landing

When you finally arrive in Manhattan after a long flight, you wouldn’t typically think of immediately catching the subway into Brooklyn, but that’s exactly what I did. I had always wanted to watch the sun set over Manhattan and I arrived in the big city right on time. There’s a platform looking out at Manhattan []
