Are you Team Pokémon GO or Team Pokemon Go Away? There are probably three different responses to this question: 1. Team Pokémon GO; 2. Team Pokémon Go Away; or 3. What are you even talking about!? Whatever your response, we decided to give Pokémon GO a quick 15 minutes and highlight a few recent visitors to the area.

Fairview Manor is a cozy redwood escape tucked into the lush forests of the San Lorenzo Valley. Innkeepers Gael Abayon and Jack Hazelton run a charming, nearly 100-year old guest home that sits on a beautiful patch of land alongside the San Lorenzo River. The peaceful respite is immersed in nature with squirrels darting between trees and deer nimbly strolling at river’s edge.

I love using Instagram as a way to get inspired for travels and adventures. A quick location search and I can see a slew of current (sometimes practically live) photos of spots I’m looking to explore. On my latest hunt for a good hike I searched Castle Rock State Park and kept seeing these amazing boulders and grand vistas that I knew I wanted to see for myself. Take a peek at these Castle Rock photos - and more specifically, Goat Rock Trail photos - and get inspired for your next adventure!

With majestic palm trees, cool bay breezes and stunning waterfront views, is there a more exhilarating way to see Santa Cruz’s shoreline than on two wheels? We recently teamed up with Noelle Stearns, Events Coordinator at The Dream Inn, to cruise West Cliff Drive, a ridiculously scenic promenade that links the best of Santa Cruz’s scenery, history and attractions.
