In February 2019 I spent a few days in Phoenix Arizona to attend a few spring training games. While preparing for my trip, I did some research and shared some of the best attractions in Phoenix. While I was thrilled to be able to see several museums such as the Arizona Science Center, Heard Museum, and the Phoenix Art Museum, I was also trying to stay on a budget. With that in mind, I was also looking for some free things to do. Luckily I have found quite a few free things to do in Phoenix. Some of the activities or attractions are inside and some are outside. Obviously, the group you are with, and the time of year will play a factor in what you can see and do. Continue reading “Phoenix, Arizona – Free Things to do in the Valley of the Sun”
There were a lot of cool things about being at the Hyatt Regency in Waikiki during our visit to Oahu in December of 2016. One of them was being able to enjoy the Indoor Farmers Market they hold every Tuesday and Thursday night from 4-8 pm. We hit it right after watching the amazing Hula Show on Kuhio Beach. I will share a little more about that show in a bit, but first I want to share a little about the wonderful Farmers Market.
In May of 2018 we were spending a couple of weeks in Europe for our 20th anniversary. While we were looking forward to spending a few days in Vienna in Austria and Prague in the Czech Republic, we were going to be in Munich Germany for a little more than a week. I can’t tell you how excited I was to finally get to Germany. This city looks so amazing and interesting. I have German ancestors and couldn’t wait to wait to visit some of biergartens, try some local fare, and see some of the amazing landscape. As with the other cities, we have a few things planned but also wanted to mix in a few free things while in the area. Therefore I eagerly did some research and found quite a few free things. Thus I decided to share with all of you in case you are planning your own trip to Munich. Here is the list of my top 7 free things we hope to do on our trip (in no particular order). I will also let you know which places we visited and share a little about our experience while visiting.

In March of 2017, my niece Alex and I spent a few days together in Phoenix. We enjoyed visiting the OdySea Aquarium and checking out some of South Mountain Park. We also enjoyed a great meal at Comedor Guadalajara. However, our trip wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to the Phoenix Public Market – aka the Open Air Market.

While enjoying the Riverwalk in San Antonio in February of 2018, we heard about a Farmers Market and decided to check it out. It was called the Pearl Brewery Farmers Market and was different than some of the other ones, but truly interesting. I also remember all the cute dogs and kids running around. It made me really miss our puppies and wished that they were with us. However, it was fun petting many of them. Continue reading “The Pearl Brewery Farmers Market in San Antonio, Texas”
One of the things Gene really wanted to see and do while we were in Seattle in May of 2016, besides Boeing and Museum of Flight, was visiting the Pike Place Market. He claimed the main reason was to watch the guys throw some fish around. I really didn’t see the appeal on the fish-throwing part, but I did want to see the market. We spent a few areas one afternoon before heading next door to Safeco Field to watch my Angels play the Mariners. We had a great time walking about the market place which I learned opened on August 17, 1907. Wow, I had no idea it has been around that long.

I cannot express how much we enjoyed our visit to Germany and running around Munich. It was our 20th anniversary trip in May of 2018. and it was incredible. Sadly it rained a lot, which limited some of the things we could do outside. However one afternoon we were able to visit Marienplatz Square and see the Glockenspiel clock. It was really interesting and we had a great time walking around the square. Eventually, we make our way to Viktualienmarkt Farmers Market. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
