Zilker Neighborhood – Austin, TX

Living off Airbnb gives you an amazing opportunity to explore in neighborhoods {and houses!} that you wouldn't otherwise find {or be able to afford}. I'm absolutely in love with this neighborhood we're currently in, Zilker, in south Austin. We're walking distance to Barton Springs, Zilker Park, all of South Lamar - with lots of nature, restaurants, stores, and more. Here are some pics of our airbnb,

Austin’s Sixth Street – Austin, TX

Sixth street is one of the most iconic places in Austin and helped name the city "The live music capital of the world". Tons of restaurants, bars, and shops - with many of them hosting live music events every night of the week. What I've learned from locals is that Sixth street is divided into 3 parts: West Sixth, East Sixth, and most famous - Dirty Sixth.

New Eats – Tallahassee, FL

Tallahassee sure has changed in the past few years. Going back for football season this year allowed us to enjoy some of the new eats all over town.   The Edison The setting and ambience of this transformed warehouse did not exist in Tallahassee before! I really enjoyed the vibe and food - but the service is REALLY lacking. Level 8 Happy hour here the

The Lookout, Playa del Coco, CR

It's called The Lookout for a reason - the view is unbeatable {hello double rainbow!} Overlooking Playa del Coco's lush greenery and ocean inlet from above paired with delicious food is a recipe for success! We went several times during our stay in Playa del Coco, enjoying the views, the Oysters, and the Craft Beers. Skip the lobster grilled cheese and order all of the yummy

Lupe Tortilla, Houston, TX

Mexican food is my favorite but thanks to my corn allergy - I don't get to enjoy it anymore. Luckily for me, Lupe Tortilla has lots of corn-free {and delicious} options. If you're in the Houston area looking for some delicious Tex-Mex, you must check out this spot! I loved the Chicken Tocino {shown below} - 2 marinated grilled chicken breasts topped with bacon +

Cedar Creek, Houston, TX

Cedar Creek Cafe is a little bit of Austin in Houston! Enjoy delicious bbq, drinks, and art on their awesome outside patio sitting next to {you guessed it, a creek}. It was pretty busy, but our food came out quickly and the weather was nice enough to enjoy the great outdoor atmosphere.

Midtown Houston, TX

Midtown was the place most recommended for us to visit in Houston, so we headed over for Sunday Funday! All of the restaurants and bars were packed and full of red, white, and blue for the Texan's Sunday NFL game. You can easily restaurant and barhop around as they are all walking distance from each other. Everyone was right... I liked this area a lot - a nice

Pork Steak House, Liberia, CR

After hiking through the Lllanos de Cortez waterfall we definitely worked up an appetite. The closest city between the waterfall and where we were staying {Playas del Coco} was Liberia, so we stopped for a bite. Liberia isn't my favorite - very dirty and downtown like with lots of one way streets and tiny fast food joints and stores, but we did happen to stumble upon

Playa Flamingo, CR

Where we're at is pretty remote {Las Catalinas - Playa Danta, CR} and there's only 1 taxi driver that will come to this area so we haven't ventured outside too much. But in honor of the birthday princess {hehe} and Heath visiting from LA - we headed a few beach towns over to honor my birthday wishes - a sunset and a delicious meal. Part 1 Wish: Sunset Location:
