Three Quickie Weekend Jaunts from SFO

Three Quickie Weekend Jaunts from SFO

As glorious as San Francisco and the Bay Area are, some weekends just call for a getaway. Maybe it’s one, or five, too many foggy mornings or you just need a change of scenery for a couple days. Whatever the case, one of the best things about SF is that it makes getting to other part of America, and the world, accessible. Here are three weekend jaunts that are a short hop from SFO.

Manhattan Beach: Long Layover or Quick Getaway

No one likes long layovers. But if you're subject to a long layover, LAX isn’t a bad place to be. Nearby Manhattan Beach is a great place to spend a few hours or the evening, if you’ve got the time.

Off the Beaten Baja Path in Loreto

Off the Beaten Baja Path in Loreto

Long known to fishermen out to hook dorado for dinner, the seaside town of Loreto on Baja California’s east coast is slowly making a name for itself with folks who would have no idea what to do with a rod and reel.

About 250 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, Loreto is classic old Mexico and, for the most part, still largely untouched by tourism’s influence. This is not a party town. You’ll find all the cerveza and tequila you’ll need, but life here is quiet and slow.

Five Ways to Leave the Las Vegas Strip Behind

Ditching the Las Vegas Strip

“I've never been off the strip in Vegas.” This comes from not one, but multiple people I've talked with recently about Las Vegas. Is that not the same as visiting San Francisco and never leaving the Marina? Well maybe not quite, but nonetheless, half the fun of travel is discovering a part of a place that is relatively unexplored by the traveler. While the Las Vegas Strip is no doubt where the action takes place in Sin City, there is so much more to Vegas that I spotlight today with five things to do off the strip.

School's Out! Keep the Kids Learning on a Trip to D.C.

The White House

Washington DC and American history go hand in hand, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a history buff to enjoy a summer trip to the nation’s capitol. There’s plenty to keep all ages entertained, and with a number of airlines offering direct flights from SFO, getting there is a snap.

Five of the Best Airport Restaurants in the U.S.

Five of the Best Airport Restaurants in the U.S.

The subject of airport dining is a touchy one. There's the issue of price, with food and drink prices at airports being on the same level as stadium food. And even then, the food leaves much to be desired. However, having spent many nights in a variety of U.S. airports, I've tasted the good and bad of America's airport food. However, while it can be hard to find, there are some good dining options. Today I tell you about a few of the best airport restaurants in the U.S.

A Guide to the Other Side of London

A Guide to the Other Side of London

For some, London conjures a mix of Mary Poppins, Hugh Grant, and Harrods. But this is half the story at best—in fact, the western half. In the run-up to the 2012 Summer Olympics, East London is more accessible to visitors than ever, thanks in large part to the extended East London rail line, which connects the city center with stops in key neighborhoods like Shoreditch, Dalston, Haggerston, and Whitechapel. Here's where to stay, eat and what to see.
