California’s Vintage Hollywood Retreat: A Guide To Palm Springs

Located in inland Southern California, at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, Palm Springs is one of the most visited cities in California. Back in the 50s and 60s (and still now), many Hollywood stars would come to Palm Springs as a vacation and retreat spot. Palm Springs is now very influenced by Hollywood, and it is full of architecturally famous homes that used to house stars like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. The city is surrounded by the Coachella Valley and the nearby Joshua Tree National Park, and it hosts the yearly Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Neighbourhood Guide: Old Town Scottsdale

I have lived in the Greater Phoenix area for most of my life, and I am pretty familiar with the area now. Somewhere I like to visit often is Old Town Scottsdale, a neighbourhood in south Scottsdale based around the original townsite.

San Francisco MOMA

Hello! In today’s post, I am going to be writing about the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. During my trip to San Francisco, my family and I visited the city’s famous MOMA. The museum recently underwent a huge renovation, and it was closed for three years, just re-opening under a year ago. The San Francisco MOMA is now the largest Modern art museum in the States, and it is one of the most famous museums in the city. I hadn’t planned to do an entire post on the museum, but I was so pleasantly surprised by it that I thought it deserved an entire article.
