Go on a Local Vacation

Ditching tourist attractions for hidden gems...

Tourist attractions can be cool, but let's face it: You can only go to so many capital buildings, botanical gardens and zoos before you just wish you could see something a little different.  I like to spend my free time exploring cities and love seeing the unique experiences that each has to offer. I have a love of storytelling and desperate need for attention, so I would love nothing more to share my honest, uncensored opinions/experiences about all the unique experiences the locals enjoy.



Right now, with my limited time and budget, I can only find insider info for where I currently live. And I will very gladly share that with you. But I want this to be a resource for cities all over the country! I will be eternally grateful to anyone who sends in their own hidden gems  or unknown awesomeness.  Hell, if you have your own inventive or eclectic business, send it in, and I'll direct people there via this site!

But don't stop there.  Feel free to submit in your own reviews of the things I post if you ever make it there. Send pictures. Is something I posted no longer around? Anything you know of that you don't want to do or are too afraid to try?  Want to cover for me when it comes to things I avoid (nature, movies, meat, liquor)? Give me feedback about the site. Anything about the current layout annoying you?

Dan Savage.

I consider him to be somewhat of a living legend. Even if you don't know him by name, you're almost guaranteed to know of some of his work, projects, terms or rules. So who exactly is he?

He runs a sex and relationship advice column and podcast. His column, S...

A comedian named Steve Hoffstetter has gone viral online for posting videos of him responding to hecklers. Now, he has produced an online comedy club, named The Nowhere Comedy Club. It is extremely experimental right at the moment, but the premise is that you pay $10 t...

I'm dealing with the isolation just fine, but I'm getting a little stir crazy being stuck at home. Because of this, I've decided to bubble wrap an entire room in my home. My hope is that it will disguise my home as a different place and I will feel like I'm going somew...

Many organizations are creating ways to experience them through the internet to help people out during these next few weeks or months (who knows how long, really?!)  I've created a collection to try and gather a bunch of fun stuff into one place.

 I went to Terra Toys for their Valentine's Day event -- which included a sock puppet show and a craft station to make your own Valnetine's Day cards. Terra Toys is a well-known toy store in Austin. Not only does it have a large collection of toys, it also has a cafe,...

After a year long hiatus, I'm back!  One year ago, I was thrown for a loop in life. After working through new careers, navigating without owning a car, and general inconveniences, I think I've figured things out.  I'm ready to devote more time into this website again,...
