Kelly's Activity

ALondon: Young, fun area to stay in London for College Grads?

Hi Alex, Congrats on your graduation! You're going to have a blast in London. Yes, I think Shoreditch​ and Camden Town​ would be great choices -- there are a lot of young people and cool bars in the area -- but I'd also keep... See More

ASan Francisco: Best things to see for one day in San Francisco?

If you're in SF for a day, I would avoid the tourist traps. Keep away from Pier 39​, wave hello to Alcatraz​ from the shore, and don't -- please don't -- wait in line to ride a crowded cable car. Instead, I'd wear good... See More

ANew York City: Best burger in the city?

Hey! Another spot to seek out is Island Burgers and Shakes​ in Hell's Kitchen​. I'm not sure if it was because I'd been walking around all day and came in starving, or if a burger here is really to die for, but I remember it being delicious.... See More

ASan Francisco: Driving From SF to LA- what are the best things to see and do?

Hi Andre, I just did this road trip over the weekend, and it's a lot of fun! I've driven down Highway 1 a few times, and there's always something new to see. As far as staples go -- and if you like aquariums -- Monterey Bay Aquarium​ is worth... See More

ALos Angeles: What are the best rooftop bars in L.A.?

Two beachside bars to throw into the mix: At sunset, check out the High Rooftop Lounge​ ​ at the Hotel Erwin​ in Venice, which has great views of the boardwalk and ocean. But if you want somewhere to go during the day, head to Hennessey's... See More

AWhere are the craziest roads in the world?

One road trip that definitely takes some courage is the ride from Kingston (Jamaica)​, the capital of Jamaica, to a mountain resort called Strawberry Hill​. The trip takes you from the city into the lush Blue Mountains, but the switchback... See More

ABest locations for a solo round the world trip?

It's tough to say where someone should travel when she's going at it alone, but I'll try to help by offering a balance between people and scenery.  You're from where I would recommend going to meet people who know how to have great conversations -- the... See More

AMust experience festivals around the world?

Here are two ideas for festivals in August, so you can plan ahead:  Similar to Coachella but with cooler weather and a more low-key crowd -- not to mention, in my opinion, better food -- the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival ​ in San Francisco​... See More

ALondon: Best Dining in London?

If money were no object, you could definitely eat like royalty in London​. Even so, there's delicious food to be had while on a budget, so I'll try to give you a little of both.  On the steep side, there's Steak & Lobster Bloomsbury​ after... See More

ASan Diego: Itinerary ideas for San Diego to LA w/our active, wildlife-loving tweens?

Hi,  I'm not too familiar with San Diego, but I know of two places where your kids can see wildlife. San Diego Zoo Safari Park​: This is an almost 2,000-acre zoo surrounded by rolling hills outside of the city, and because of the space, it feels... See More
