Small Town Love: Corning, NY

I love small towns. Something about their charm, uniqueness and generally being devoid of crowds just gets me every time. We visited Corning during our recent 4-day weekend in western New York and were pleasantly surprised. Honestly, although I had heard of Corning before, I knew nothing about it.  With a historic and hipster kind…

Hiking to Taughannock Falls

As I’ve mentioned before, I love New York. Like the if-they-didn’t-get-eight-feet-of-snow-every-winter-I’d-move-there type of love. I’m slowly learning to enjoy the winter months, however my younger sister lived in New York for about five years and I can tell you right now-I don’t enjoy it that much.  Its not a far drive coming from Cleveland, so its…

Daytrip to Letchworth State Park

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the beautiful colors, the crisp air, finally getting to wear sweaters and boots…. don’t get me wrong, I love summer too, but it can get HOT in Ohio and at some point, I’m just ready for a break. But for some reason, this year, fall was…

Visiting Corning Museum of Glass

I’ll admit I had no intention of planning to visit the Corning Museum of Glass during our recent trip to western New York. I really only planned on visiting to check out Watkins Glen State Park and the other outdoor excursions available in this area.I had been researching things to do in the area and…

Discover Ohio: Exploring Lake Erie Bluffs

If there’s one thing I love about where I live, its that I am so close to Lake Erie. Although not my favorite Great Lake, it is beautiful nonetheless and I love visiting when I have the chance. I haven’t explored all of Lake Erie in Ohio yet, but I’m pretty close to it. While I was…

If you’re visiting San Francisco or driving down the California coast, the opportunity to see coastal Redwoods lies in Muir Woods National Monument.
