Independence Hall
If you are interested in American history, there is no better place to visit than Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

I have been fascinated with JFK in particular for as long as I can remember. Whether it’s the tragic...

Packing for a trip is always a mad rush and last minute process! I always try to justify why I shouldn't take some of my essential items because of what liquids they contain and the struggles this incurs trying to get through TSA lines at the airport. Well, we think that we have found the perfect solution! La Fresh is...
