Epcot, Disney World

Disney World - Epcot - Spaceship Earth - at main entranceEpcot is the most unique theme park in the Disney World collection with rides, exhibits, and shows you can’t find in any other Disney property.

The park is a permanent World’s Fair with a Disney flair. As you enter, you are presented with Spaceship Earth, a huge sphere you walk into and ride through human history.

On either side of Spaceship Earth, you will come across Future World (East and West sections). The exhibits demonstrate the latest technologies and allow visitors to interact with hands-on experiments.

In the West section, the Land Pavillion is a showcase of human interaction with mother earth. Visitors here can enjoy the flight simulator ride Soarin over the World and a ride through innovations in agriculture. 

Seal Beach

Seal Beach - PierSeal Beach is the last coastal town you will encounter in Orange County before crossing into Los Angles County and the city of Long Beach.

This little beach town has its own unique charm – with tall palm trees lining the beach, immaculate homes, and one of California's longest piers.

Los Angeles by Metro Rail

nullLos Angeles is a sprawling metropolitan area with an amazing array of attractions and activities. The area is infamous for its long grids of streets and freeways and until recently it wasn’t very friendly to public transit.

But things are changing for the better. It is now possible to visit many of the iconic places in LA by rail or by express bus. So, get your backpack, phone and camera ready and follow me on this exploration tour.

About Us

Huntington Beach First, let me introduce myself: I am Bill from Anaheim, California - USA. 

I love to travel, and during my travels, I was always looking for a good source of information about the area I am visiting. I bought travel guides. I searched travel websites looking for information that only the locals would know, and I always came up empty-handed. 

Ventura County

Ventura County includes the cities of Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Ventura, Oxnard, Ojai - each with its unique character and attractions. It is a tiny county compared to neighboring LA but full of sites and adventures.

Thousand Oaks

Thousand Oaks is the first major city you encounter as you leave Los Angeles County. The town is your typical southern California town with sprawling homes and a few large corporations, shopping centers, and parks.

But within this urban sprawl, you can find quite a few things to do and see. Here are some of my favorites:

Wildwood Regional Park and Paradise Falls

This large park is well-known for its hiking trail and a year-round waterfall. A lot of the trails are kid-friendly, but some will require close adult attention. The path to the falls is one of them.

To get to Paradise Falls, you have to climb down some steep inclines into deep valleys. Along the way, you will come across a Tepee-shaped rest area – an excellent place to relax and take some photos. Read the full article here.

Annecy France

Annecy France by Dmitry A Mottl WikipediaWalking through the pedestrian-only streets or along the canals of this town, you get the feeling that you stepped back to medieval times. And as you follow some of the canals, you end up at a picturesque lake surrounded by mountains.

The city of Annecy started as a Roman settlement and later became home to the counts of Geneva in the 10th century. In 1400 it became home to the counts of Savoy and in 1860 it became the capital of  Haute-Savoie in France. Read more here.
