  • Relax at Baldwin Beach

    While we loved exploring South Lake Tahoe the one drawback was that we couldn't bring our dog to a lot of the beaches. This beach is super dog friendly with easy free parking and beautiful everywhere you look. Come here to swim, take pictures, hav...

  • Catch a Sunset at Point State Park

    Great place to finish your day and it's right next to downtown. I would recommend getting food at PPG Place a couple blocks away and bringing it to eat and watch the sunset for dinner. You can watch and listen to the concerts happening during the ...

  • Hike the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge Trail

    The trail on the boardwalk is about a mile but you also have the option to walk the full hike which is 6.8 miles. It almost completely flat the whole time and its one of my favorite places to go near New Orleans. There's also free guided walks ava...

    Every time I go to Oregon I take this hike. In fact, these photos span from several years of going back to hike here again and again. Even though it's 7.2 miles, I would say this is a beginner hike. Part of that is because you can enjoy it by doin...

  • Snowshoeing to Tumalo Falls in Bend, Oregon

    In the summer, you can reach the 89 foot falls via driving there and you can hangout and have a picnic. However, when I went it was the middle of winter. We went snowshoeing on the 7 mile hike out there. The path was clearly made for us so at time...

  • Redwood Grove Loop Trail

    You can hike from above and not have to pay for parking for a 1-2 hour hike. You can also hike at the base of the park for an easy short 1 mile hike if you pay the park fee and then stop there or keep going to explore. Either way, it's relatively ...

  • Eagle Creek to Punch Bowl Falls

    Hike from Eagle Creek trail to Punchbowl Falls. There are a ton of other hikes surrounding this area so if you are here for a few days I would suggest check other ones out as well. It's a fairly easy hike but it gets a little steep at points so if...
