Say Hi to the USA!
Growing up in Canada, family vacations often meant a trip across the border to explore our beautiful neighbor to the south.

Hopefully that will change in the years to come, but for now, enjoy what we have written about the good ole’ USA!
Posts About the USA
- Where to Stay in Portland, Oregon — Quirky, independent, food-loving Portland is one of our favorite destinations in the USA. That’s why we reached out to a Portland local for help creating a Portland neighborhood guide, with the best areas to stay in Portland and the coolest things to do in each! We also have an old post about our beer and food truck trip to Portland.
- Where to Stay in Seattle — Beautiful, coffee-loving, tech-hub Seattle is a must on any trip to North America’s beautiful west coast. To figure out the best things to do and places to stay in Seattle, we asked a local travel blogger for help outlining the coolest pockets of this lovely city. If you’re wondering where to go after Seattle, Portland is only a few hours away, as is the border with Canada!

5 Awesome Days in Milwaukee…in Just 81 Seconds We spent five days in Milwaukee last month, and were blown away by how cool it is. For us, the ultimate litmus test of a city is, could we see ourselves living here, even if just for a few months? And when it comes to Milwaukee, it was
I glance nervously to my left, watching for Geoff’s reaction out of the corner of my eye as the server sets down a generous portion of meatloaf sandwich on the table in front of us, and our guide launches into a description of our meal. I hear the words, cherry tomato relish, and glance discretely
Of all the things to do in Milwaukee, it was the entrepreneurs and businesses that are re-shaping and re-energizing the city that drew us in, made us love Milwaukee… We’re in the back of an Uber, being driven home after a massive dinner of chicken wings, brisket, insanely delicious corn bread, and a couple of
Help Stamp Out Walking “Look at this,” Geoff gently tugs at my coat, chuckling as I turn my head. He’s standing in front of an old, graphic poster from the 1920s or 30s, made up of what looks like red, blue and black marker illustrations of rosy-eyed, red-headed children holding up placards.

I gotta say that before I lived on the we(s)t coast I had never really heard much about Portland, or the whole state of Oregon for that matter. Oregon Trail, Lewis and Clarke – BOOM, there you have it…Oregon. Portland has come up in so many conversations with friends over the last while, who
