Between 2000 and 2013, the percentage of 23- to 34-year-olds living with family jumped a whopping 46 percent. Currently, 21 percent of millennials opt to live at home with parents, while a large portion of the generation splits rent with multiple roommates or cohabitates with a significant other. Despite the rising costs of renting, almost 9 percent of U.S. millennials live solo. Mid-size cities are significantly more palatable to a millennial budget, including Richmond, where 15 percent of millennials live alone. But is it possible to live alone in a big city on a young person’s salary?
Spending a day in the Santa Monica Mountains gives you a lot of hiking options. I really wanted to explore what my friends say is the best hike, Sandstone Peak, but decided to go with Topanga Canyon's Los Leones trail up to the Parker Mesa Overlook followed by lunch at Malibu Farms on the Malibu Pier.
I am a TV and movie junkie. I have always been obsessed with the idea of moving to California, not necessarily LA, but definitely SoCal, and seeing the Hollywood sign in person was definitely on my bucket list.
I was so excited and wanted to get as close as possible, so I headed over to my college friends travel blog to learn how they did it (seriously check it out, they got SO close!).
I knew I couldn't sit in the "O" but there was something magical about walking the same path as Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in Friends with Benefits.
There is so much to see in San Francisco between Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, the Fine Arts Palace, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, and so much more! Trying to see it all while on vacation requires a game plan. So I want to write this post to help you strategize (as best I can) your visit and get the most out of your stay in San Francisco.
During a recent trip to Utah I had the chance to explore Big Cottonwood, Salt Lake City, Park City, and so much more! We were there on Pioneer Day for the Days of 47 Celebration. Pioneer Day is when the Mormon pioneers arrived in Salt Lake Valley on July 24th, 1847 (which I think is why they call it days of '47) after many had tried, failed, and died in the previous attempts. Its a major state holiday.
Muir Woods is a National Park on Mount Tamalpais near the Pacific coast, in southwestern Marin County, California. It protects 240 acres of old growth coast redwood (Sequoia) forests. Sausalito is a San Francisco Bay Area city also in Marin County, California. Sausalito was developed as a shipbuilding center in World War II. Post war the city has grown a picturesque residential community with a large number of houseboats, and a tourist destination.
