I was able to have the opportunity to live in Hawai'i and Arizona with my home state being California. I've lived in Southern, Central and Northern California, so here are some of my hometown favorites along with some places I've been and love along ...

Beautiful beach! If you visit during the month of April, 250 glass floats are hidden each week along a 1 mile stretch for you to find and take home! It's a fun little tradition to do by yourself or for the whole family. Treasure maps are also given a...

I was very lucky to be able to live on O'ahu for the years that I did. We frequented North Shore as it was only a 15 minute drive and less crowded than Waikiki. It also has some of the best food trucks, restaurants and shave ice!

I'd go over and over again just for the Dole whip, but there's also a maze, train ride, gift shop, and other things to explore while you're there. You can even ship home a pineapple if you really felt like it lol

This was a fun little drive through ride for the kids! They were able to sit up front and look at the different animals as they walked past the car. My son wasn't a fan of feeding the ostrich though lol. He did get a kick out of giraffes walking righ...

If you're ever in Southern California, we can beg to differ all day but this is one of my favorite ever pizza places. The crust is thinner, so if you're a thick crust person it's probably not your favorite or I might even convert you. I'm not a big f...

The best breakfast between Hiouchi and Crescent City! There's not one thing on the menu that isn't good. I love everything, but their breakfast sandwiches with sausage (they get their sausage from a loyal place called Taylor's Sausage) and their chic...

Every meal comes with a bag of chips and the ice cream flavor of the day or their everyday Orange. My favorite sandwich is the tri tip! It's a cold sandwich, but you can request it hot if you'd prefer. I don't think there's any flavor ice cream I hav...

Most people know and love Hawaiian rolls, but not everyone knows you can actually go to a bakery and restaurant! Their food is amazing and they have authentic Hawaiian food options along with a full bakery of baked goods to choose from! The cake pict...

You have not had shave ice until you've been to Matsumoto's! If you haven't had vanilla ice cream and sweetened condensed milk on your shave ice then it's a must try!

A fresh, hot malasada from Leonard's is a must if you make it to O'ahu! It's like a sugar coated donut with your choice of filling or no filling, but they're just so soft, fluffy and delicious!
