You know you want a wide selection of wonderfully weird things to do in Austin, Texas! I lived in Austin for years, so the city is near and dear to my heart. There are so many wacky things to do in this place. From the funky goodness of South Congress to the Cathedral of Junk (made of...yes...junk) to Chicken Poo Bingo, Austin has a totally unique vibe. My father attended graduate school at UT in the 70's, and I'd get to visit the campus with him occasionally. I grew up on Willie Nelson and Schlotzky's. I worked in an art gallery on 6th street after college and fell in love with my husband in those years. We've taken romantic strolls through Laguna Gloria, played mini-golf at Peter Pan's under the giant T-Rex, and held hands while moonlight snorkeling at Barton Springs. The whole city makes me feel young and in love with happy memories! Seeing the bat colony rise into the sky at dusk is something you should see at least once in a lifetime. And don't skip Uncommon Objects...they have everything you don't know you want yet. Do you hear that, taxidermied tiny alligator wearing a party hat? I'm coming for you. Shiner Bock ice cream from Amy's will be the perfect end to any day. Happy Austin-ing!
I moved to Vancouver Island 10 years ago (from UK) and fell in love with its raw beauty. The coastline is rugged and beautiful with both rocky cliffs and some enormous sandy beaches. There are hundreds of islands just off the coast and many opportunities for whale watching, kayaking and winter surfing. The climate is temperate rain forest so inland there are forests and lakes galore with thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails. The terrain is largely mountainous, but there are also rolling pastures with lots of small farms, vineyards and an enthusiastic local food scene. I live in Duncan, known as the City of Totems, which has a large and popular Saturday farmers market. Victoria is the capital city of BC and is rich with history, good food and culture. The Inner Harbour is a lovely place to walk around to see the boats, historic buildings and the BC Museum. Vancouver is just over an hour away by car ferry or 15 minutes by float plane.
This place is special to me because it illustrates a place of growth and integrity for me and many others. It is a place many students call home throughout the academic year and is the place I will get to accomplish my goals of getting both a bachelor's and master's degree from
This place is special to me because it brings to mind such great childhood memories of road trips on the weekends with my family. My mom wanted us to soak up as much Michigan history as we could and would take us on road trips along the coast of the Lower Peninsula to see as many lighthouses as we could fit into a Summer Saturday.
A map of Arizona, the Grand Canyon state! With jaw-dropping sunsets, and natural wonders, fantastic animals, and beautiful cactus of all shapes and sizes. Arizona is my home state, and I never get tired of exploring all the natural beauty and culture it has to offer.
Having family in Mexico, I wanted to do something that shows some of the things scattered around in Mexico and about Mexico. Showcasing some of the well-known items you come to think about when you think Mexico. Including landmarks, food, sports teams, and icons that you think about when you hear "Mexico". All done in acrylic gouache and did some last minute touch ups in Photoshop.
This place is special to me because I love the juxtaposition of old cobblestone streets and colonial architecture in a thoroughly modern city. Boston has the best of everything ... a bustling, beautiful, cosmopolitan city that is small enough to walk from end to end. This little city really shines in the fall when the students return and the leaves start to change color. It’s a great place where new ideas are always blooming, yet is steeped in history and tradition. Come see for yourself!
Kepler is a (fictional) small, and sleepy town tucked in the West Virginian Monongahela National Forest. Located in the National Radio Quiet Zone, the town is sure to notice when something goes bump in the night-- yet there is a secret, stone archway hidden in the woods that the rest of town has yet to hear about. When the moonlight hits just right, where is it that the archway opens up to, and more importantly, what is coming over into Kepler? From the Adventure Zone, the hit D&D podcast from the McElroy family, Kepler is the setting of the Amnesty campaign all about cryptids and monster hunting.
This place is special to me because I love running here. Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California, USA is an excellent running spot as it has birds, turtles, flowers, trees, plants and views to check out. Not into running?! There’s more to do-you can picnic, snack, rent a boat, shop for souvenirs, see Huntington Falls, sit in a pagoda, people watch and relax on a bench. A bit of Stow Lake history — the lake is man-made. An observatory existed on the top of Strawberry Hill but it was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake. Butterflies look for mates on Strawberry Hill and there’s a ghost that haunts the lake. Come visit!
I'm not from Orlando, but I like to say that our little family is "from" Orlando since my husband and I both went to school here, met, got married, and had two babies in the City Beautiful. During our time as Orlando residents, we loved to get takeout from a restaurant or grab a drink + dessert from a cafe or pick up fixin's for a perfect picnic and sit together under the warm sunshine in one of Orlando's many green parks. We also have a thing for books and our idea of a lovely day is lounging on a picnic blanket with good reads and great eats.
This place is special to me because I have been to the States only twice and this is a very special place I’d love to visit again next time during fall when the leaves are so wonderfully colored and one can absorb the beautiful nature on extensive walks through the Acadia National Park. There is a good chance to catch a glimpse on mooses and birds. Usually lobsters are a luxurious delicacy but here they are abundant and make for an affordable dinner.
