Albuquerque, New Mexico- 8 Fun Things To Do in Duke City

Albuquerque

Hi there everyone.  In a couple of weeks, Gene and I will be heading to Albuquerque so I did some more research on the area and check out some of the things we wanted to do while in New Mexico.

However, there are always more things to see and do, or explore in a different city.  Thus I did some research (so you don’t have to) and found 8 must-see attractions in the area. These are in no particular order.: Continue reading “Albuquerque, New Mexico- 8 Fun Things To Do in Duke City”

Casper Museums – Best Museums in Casper, Wyoming

Casper - Horse

Gene and I have enjoyed many long weekend trips to Casper, Wyoming, and enjoy this little city a lot. Quite often we are there during the hotter time of the year or the cooler time of the year. For some reason, it just seems to have worked out that way. Thus, we have tried to do some museums and such when it is really hot out. If we are not at a museum, we are often at Frontier Brewing, or Backwards Distillery, lol.  Hey, you have to support the locals, right?  In all seriousness, we have enjoyed a few outside attractions such as the amazing Ayres Natural Bridge, and the beautiful waterfalls at Rotary Park. However today, I wanted to share a little about some of the best Casper museums in and around Casper, Wyoming. These are in no particular order:

The Walker Art Gallery Museum – Liverpool, England

Walker Art Gallery - FrontI love art as you can probably tell from some of my posts such as  The Musée d’Orsay Museum,  Art Institute in Chicago, and many more. You may also notice that I really enjoy impressionism art, and had to visit the Walker Art Gallery when we were in Liverpool, England. I had never heard of it until we were talking to some locals in Manchester who told us we had to visit if we liked art. Thus, we took some time one day to explore the museum. PSA, make sure to talk to locals when traveling. They have the best advice! Continue reading “The Walker Art Gallery Museum – Liverpool, England”

Omaha, Nebraska – My Top 7 Things on Our to-do List

OmahaIn June of 2019 we were heading to Omaha for a few days before I continue on to Des Moines, IA for the LWMS convention. We have been through Omaha once before, but never explored the area.

Thus I decided to do some research and find some fun things to do while we are in the area.  While a few charge a small fee, many of them are free. I look forward to our trip and creating posts about our adventures. Continue reading “Omaha, Nebraska – My Top 7 Things on Our to-do List”

Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO – Boulder’s Commercial Artery

Pearl Street Mall-BuffaloIn November of 2019 we did a staycation and spent a long weekend at the Hyatt Place here in Boulder, CO. While there we were able to do something that we hadn’t done since we’ve lived here in CO, we walked up and down Pearl Street Mall. Here is a little bit of trivia for those interested, the Pearl Street Mall was officially dedicated on August 6, 1977.  It was nice to be out and about, but the most fun was watching all the street performers. It was a little chilly, but not too bad for the beginning of November. Continue reading “Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO – Boulder’s Commercial Artery”
