Each year, Huntsville, Alabama celebrates its culture and community with an incredibly large and well-thought-out restaurant week. This is the 6th annual Huntsville Restaurant Week, not to mention the best so far! There are 60 restaurants and 5 local breweries joining in on the fun with events as well as lunch and dinner specials at each participating restaurant.
I have been dying to go to a Michelin Star restaurant for the longest time and finally had an opportunity to do so during my latest trip to Las Vegas, Nevada.
My mom and I spent some time in Las Vegas together shortly after both of our birthdays so I decided to splurge [ah!] and take us both to a really nice birthday dinner. It’s the most expensive and most highly acclaimed Las Vegas Michelin Star restaurant that I’ve been to [so far].
When you’re traveling through a beautiful country, I find it’s best to make it a road trip. This way you can stop and explore as much or as little as possible, which is why I chose to do a Scotland road trip.
We started our Scotland road trip in Edinburgh after arriving by train from London. One of my favorite things about seeing a new city is doing as the locals do, which is why I find walking is the best route.
Have you ever heard of Huntsville, Alabama?
Being from Georgia, I am surprised to find out that most people outside of the south haven’t. I also didn’t know a lot about Huntsville before going, but am pleasantly surprised by the amount of things to do here.
Huntsville might be small, but it’s full of culture, food and NASA. I’m serious. Huntsville is not only home to great barbecue, but is also home to Redstone Arsenal, a U.S.
London is one of the most popular cities and is also the capital of the United Kingdom. It’s a travel destination for people all over the world and is a city that has meshing cultures.
If you only have 36 hours in London these are [my] main places to hit.
Here’s how to spend your time wisely in London!
We arrived in London around noon so our first stop was right next our Airbnb, Neal’s Yard.
The New Orleans food scene is incredible. It’s one of the things NOLA is known for.
If you find yourself in New Orleans, here are [my] main places you can’t miss for food.
Beignets and CoffeeCafe Du Monde is the place that everyone goes when they arrive and for good reason. Don’t be scared off by the long lines because they move very fast and you’ll be enjoying this fried goodness before you know it. You order them in three’s so be prepared.
Austin, Texas is an incredibly vibrant city with a ton to do. You definitely don’t want to miss some of the main spots, but will undoubtedly have to visit again.
Torchy’s Tacos has multiple locations and so many taco choices. I tried the fried avocado taco and a fish taco, both were great. This is the place that multiple people mentioned and recommended going to before I arrived so it’s a must do.
So I know tacos are literally everywhere in Texas, but I have narrowed my list for Austin tacos down to four [pescatarian friendly] favorites.
Shrimp tacos are probably my favorite type of tacos so I’m kind of tough on them and these passed the test. The sauteed kale on top was actually perfect and added a great flavor and texture. Not only does Fresa’s have great tacos and drinks, but they also have some pretty great and unique sides.
After being a cast member [employee] at Disney World and going there at least once every year with my family since I was a kid, I’ve found a few tricks that we always abide by. So I’ve made a list of my favorite Disney hacks to share so we can all make the most of our time and money while still feeling all the magic.
My favorite hack [because you always need water, especially in Florida] is about staying hydrated for free.
In my opinion, everything tastes good at Disney World, but there are a few treats that you definitely shouldn’t skip. Sometimes I even have all of them in one day…
Mickey Ice Cream
This is a must eat treat mostly because it’s delicious, but also because it’s shaped like Mickey’s head and is adorable. Vanilla ice cream dipped in chocolate is always a great treat in my book.
