Café 21

Gaslamp is often known for party central, but did you know it is also home to one of the cutest and most delicious cafes in town? Café 21 is located right across from one of my favorite bars, Tipsy Crow, and features live music and a fun happy hour menu. However, we visited on a Saturday morning in search of brunch and are now marking this as a must-visit every time we’re in town.

Palazzo Las Vegas

Within the last few trips, I've further prolonged my return and while I always have a good time, let's be real. After 21, the fun and excitement of Las Vegas dwindled.

However, with this last trip, I had the pleasure of staying at the Palazzo and experienced the city on a whole new level.

6 Things to Do in Barcelona

Our final destination with FinnAir was Spain, specifically Sitges and Barcelona. We spent a night in Sitges and two nights in Barcelona, leaving us extremely sad to leave so soon, as we all fell in love with the country. What’s there not to love honestly? Beautiful beach views, gorgeous architecture, the best paella, plenty of shopping centers, fresh coffee, and so much more. In fact, I’m surprised at how much we were able to do in two nights and complied a list of recommended activities for your next stay in Barcelona.

Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

Situated on Wilshire Boulevard, this oceanfront property features manicured grounds, beautiful interior design, and one of the most popular restaurants to dine at, FIG. Not to mention one of the most favorited places to party on the weekends, the Bungalow. Trust me when I say that the line gets long really fast on any given Saturday or Sunday. I opted out of the partying for our stay and chose a more relaxed itinerary for the weekend featuring poolside tanning, beach hangs, and breakfast in the room on our private patio.
