One of the highlights of our trip to San Francisco was visiting the island of Alcatraz! The island is of course famous for the prison, but it also has other key characteristics that made this famous as a fort, a natural habitat and a Native American homeland. The tour begins on land as you embark on the Alcatraz Cruise which...
Before traveling to San Francisco, we decided to either venture north to the wine valleys of Napa and Sonoma or head away from the coast inland to Yosemite National Park. I am not sure what the eventual determining factor was but we opted for the latter and prepared a route from San Francisco that saw us first head south...
Seattle, Washington is one city that we are really hoping to visit in the near future (hopefully at some point during 2014). We are excited about the opportunities available here and the fact it is in close proximity to the Canadian border so you could make a bigger trip out of this by crossing over into Canada. As we have...
A vacation or trip to San Francisco would not be the same without visiting Fisherman's Wharf and in particular Pier 39. If you are staying in the downtown area as we were, such as on Union Square, you have two recommended options of accessing the Wharf area and I have to admit that both of these are viable choices...
When you think about San Francisco you probably all consider the likes of the Golden Gate Bridge, the beautiful San Fran Bay Area, the Wharf, Alcatraz or nearby places such as Napa Valley, Yosemite or Pebble Beach? Well you are not the only ones that think like that because these are all areas we are excited about visiting in the...
Is there anything better than taking a random trip somewhere on a long weekend break? We love just being spontaneous and leaving it until the last minute to take trips. Of course, when you are looking at international travel, for the most part you need to plan in advance because you are likely going to need to take time...
Following up on our other post regarding the National Mall in Washington DC, we had a great experience visiting a number of FREE (yes that's right, the majority of museums in the Mall in DC are free of charge) museums. Truth be told, you could probably spend at least half a day or maybe even a full day if...
If you are looking to spend a full day exploring a plethora of history, heritage, fun and excitement for FREE then you would do well to find anywhere better suited than the National Mall in Washington DC. You are probably asking - surely it is too good to be true that you claim everything is free and there has...
Whenever you think about things to do in Dallas, Texas you are probably not considering visiting a furniture store and getting excited about it. Well, when you have never visited an IKEA before and are looking for anything relating to modern day furniture or household goods, this store certainly provides a delectable array of products and overall experience that...
Where would we be without the world of blogging? Ok so that may be a little bit of a cliché but if we hadn't discovered the magnitude of blogs out there, we probably wouldn't have established our original name of 'Tourist Guide Central'. It seems like a long time ago that we came up with that name and in hindsight...
