how to be a tourist in portland, me

I’ve only visited Maine once (Bar Harbor, to be specific) and it was back in college during summer vacation with one of those cheap buy two get one free Chinese tour bus companies. Not exactly a relaxing experience.  Now fast forward to 2020. Ah, the year of no travels. The last time I had gone … Continue reading how to be a tourist in portland, me

how to be a tourist in seattle

Shop around at the Pike Place Market. Opened in 1907, it’s one of the world’s oldest farmer’s markets. They sell everything from crafts to fresh seafood. I enjoyed checking out all of the huge crab legs and salmon. It was then that I wished we had an AirBnB instead of a hotel room so that … Continue reading how to be a tourist in seattle

Take in the scenery at Rocky Mountain National Park. Hike some trails. We did Sprague Lake and Copeland Falls. Both are short, beginner trails and you can do them in half a day. Just be sure to take it slow. Since you’re at a higher altitude, you’ll run out of breath quicker If you’re staying … Continue reading how to be a tourist in denver

the most popular brewery in amsterdam (hint: it’s not heineken)

Sure, it’s easy to just flock to the Heineken Experience like all the other tourists do, but I’ve heard and read that it kind of sucks. Not going to lie, I still wanted to check it out anyway (you know, for research and beer drinking purposes). But our schedule was just too tight. However, it … Continue reading the most popular brewery in amsterdam (hint: it’s not heineken)

how to be a tourist in pittsburgh

I’m not going to lie to you. There’s not much. At least not in the two half days that I experienced it. There’s the Duquesne Incline, the Strip District, and the Church Brew Works. But I think that pretty much sums it up. Duquesne Incline - is an inclined plane railroad that goes up Mount … Continue reading how to be a tourist in pittsburgh
