Napa Valley, Napa County, CA, United States : I am still basking in the afterglow of a perfect stay at Auberge Du Soleil Resort Napa Valley. Truly a five star experience, the resort is perched high up on the hill in Napa Valley offering stunning views of wine country from its famed Michelin star rated restaurant and guest room. My room had a view of the valley (incredible) but my friends had an outdoor tub and shower instead. Both were dramatic, modern and full of attentive details that made for a memorable stay. Services were impeccable and the food at the terrace restaurant was amazing. I had an Asian Shrimp Salad for lunch and couldn't get sufficient of it. Paired with the glass of white wine. An excellent place to dine in the region. The patio offers stunning views with cool breeze and intimate tables that aren't crammed in. There are some great vegetarian options. Absolutely, it is a beautiful resort a great view, exquisite rooms, nice meeting space and a fabulous restaurant. This resort is perfect for a girls trip- just perfect!

Napa Valley, Napa County, CA, United States : Aubergine Restaurant is what a darling place. This restaurant deserves a drive down to Carmel by the sea just because of this bite.The food is incredible. Much of the ingredients are locally sourced. Flavor shine clearly through the presentation and like a symphony are present in different ways in various movement of the piece. The wine that was served to us was just perfect. It was wonderful night and we would go back again. Best food I have ever had! Had the delicious menu and was puff away! Services was excellent loved the oyster and caviar. The chef use of seasonal ingredients was spot on, flavor amazing, ambience fantastic, just great establishment all around. The ambiance kind of reminds me of a modern French laundry. This is cozy small restaurant with an upscale classy decor. I loved the unique artistic, creative and natural distinctness of the menu. I just can’t explain how blown away I was by each dish, that was presented to me.

Bardessono Napa Valley is a stunning hotel.The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, staff is incredibly friendly, and Lucy’s has good food. I have stayed in many nice hotels but this one was at the peak of my list. The rooms are perfect. Outside private showers on your balcony, massage table area for in room, fireplace, deep jetted tub, I mean the work. The complimentary car service with chauffeur goes perfect with local wine tasting so you make it back safely every time and avoid those dreaded DUI's . Beautiful hotel and the staff really go out of their way to make wonderful experience. This hotel is amazing, absolutely gorgeous wonderful services and great location. When we got into our room there was a personal note welcoming us. Bardessono has a very clean and modern aesthetic. Customer services are stellar and seamless.

Fairbanks, AK, United States : Alaska Coffee Shop is the kind of place I'd think about when I think of a tremendous coffee shop. I walk up to the place on a day when they're roasting and i smell the beans being roasted from the parking lot. The fresh roasted coffee is scrumptious and smooth and loved this place. The quiche is very delicious. The baked goods look very yummy. The pot pies, veggie pockets, and shepherd's pie are all very appetizing and priced reasonably. . The baked and sweat treats are startling. Is not a place for heavy lunch or dinner but the relish items are amazing. i loved the flat bread, just awesome. This place is a really wonderful break from the cold.

Golden Gate Bridge is beautiful and Iconic, without taking some pictures of this functional work of art, no trip to the city is complete. Taking a picture will do for some, but for the full experience, bring a jacket and go for a walk on the bridge. Stop, feel and watch the bridge move for a real experience. It is such a great feeling just to be on the bridge and to see the entire city. Here are so many areas that are excellent to take good pictures at. Either at the bottom or on the bridge but it's finest to go like half a mile away from the bridge at the bottom to take high-quality pictures. The bridge is not only for the most photographed bridge in the globe, but also pretty functional. With daily tourists, commuters and locals alike, this bridge is strongly made for bike riding, jogging, walking, and running, at all times of the day.
