Finding Budget Meals in LA's Ethnic Supermarkets

I can trace my interest in supermarkets as tourist attractions to time I spent in the Dominican Republic 17 years ago, when, shopping with local friends, I was downright shocked by the variety of shapes and sizes of the kitchen tool invented to smash a once-fried plantain slice before tossing it back into the oil to make a tostón. read more »

Disney Revs Up for Cars Land Opening

On June 15, the Disneyland Resort will open the highly anticipated Cars Land, a new, 12-acre section of the Disney California Adventure Park. Based on the Disney-Pixar blockbuster Cars, the land features three new attractions: Luigi’s Flying Tires, a spinning, bumper car-style ride in which the tires float on a cushion of air; Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, where riders whip around behind a baby tractor “do-si-doing” to tunes from Mater’s giant jukebox; and the thrilling Radiator Springs Racers, a ride that includes lots of fun encounters with Cars’ characters and ends with an electrifying race to the finish line. read more »

Cinco de Mayo – or the Fifth of May - is a holiday originating in Puebla, Mexico to commemorate the last foreign battle on North American soil. The Mexican army defeated the much larger and better-equipped French army in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. read more »

The NEW Disneyland Hotel: A perfect blend of nostalgia & modern amenities

The first Disney property I ever stayed at was the Disneyland Hotel. It was also the property we chose when we took our three-year-old niece on her first trip to Disneyland in 2002. We have tons of photos of her at the hotel — smiling in front of the statue of Mickey Mouse, riding the elevators (she was living in a town that didn’t have many such fancy contraptions, so, for her, this was as much fun as Disneyland itself), splashing around in the Neverland pool, and, of course, eating lots of meals at Goofy’s Kitchen. read more »

Disneyland's Hidden Treasures

As die-hard Disney-goers, my family and I are masters of the speed tour, powering through with a plan in hand so we can conquer all our favorite rides at least once. But over the years we’ve also learned it’s just as important to slow down and savor some of the off-the-beaten path thrills—especially in Disneyland, Walt’s original park. read more »

Savings and Sun in So Cal

Winter always gets me thinking about going to theme parks in Southern California, even if I don't have visitors underfoot. The prospect of cooler temperatures and lighter crowds in February and March sends me looking for discounts on the high cost of tickets. I found that the Southern California CityPASS - with a flat rate for admission to Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood and SeaWorld San Diego - offers good savings, even when compared with incentives for SoCal residents. read more »

Escape the Winter Blues with a Trip to L.A.

Most of the time, I love living in a part of the country that has four distinct weather seasons. But when winter’s grip is deep and strong, as it is now, I find myself longing for a warm respite. Oh, to be in Los Angeles, where February’s average temperatures range from 49 degrees F to 69 degrees F… where fresh produce still graces farmers markets … where amusement parks still flicker with lights… where you can walk about without the added poundage of winter attire… Let’s go! read more »
