Why Travel To Barcelona Alone? Travelling alone may seem scary and overwhelming, especially the first time. But if you do it right, it can be one of the most rewarding and liberating experiences you could have. Unlike travelling in a more conventional way, visiting a city on your own truly opens your mind.

Best New York 3 Day Itinerary Attractions Experience

If you are not too tired after Broadway, pop into Times Square to see the flashing lights and night time atmosphere. Those lights do make it feel like it’s the middle of the day.

Times Square is not where I tend to spend a lot of time.

It’s just a square with flashing light advertisements and overpriced stores and restaurants, although we actually do like the Hard Rock Cafe here.

Take the KIDS Texas Fall Foliage

Take the KIDS Texas Fall Foliage. Crisp fall temperatures bring on the gorgeous colors of fall leaves. In some parts of the country more so than others – mostly the northeast of the country.

Growing up in the far south of Texas, seeing the lovely colors of leaves was something I always dream of. But, as it often does, life got in the way.

As I was a student during the fall color and then I was a teacher during the fall color and couldn’t get away. Then I had kids in school during the fall color and couldn’t get away.

Thankfully, the fall leaves of the far northern portion of the United States isn’t something I’ve been able to see.
