    Top 5 Must-Do’s in Louisville, Kentucky

    Over Veterans’ Day Weekend, I visited the state of Kentucky for the first time and spent three days in Louisville. I felt like three days was the perfect amount of time to see all of the highlights. I would recommend an extra day if you plan on going outside of the city and hitting up some distilleries along the Bourbon Trail or if you just need more time to eat more good food! These are the five things I would consider must-dos on a first time visit to Louisville. Live Horse Racing at Churchill Downs While Churchill Downs is most well-known for hosting the annual Kentucky Derby, it also has…

    Meow Wolf’s “The House of Eternal Return” in Santa Fe, New Mexico

    In 2016, no trip to Santa Fe is complete without a stop at Meow Wolf. Meow Wolf is an art collective based in Santa Fe. In March of this year, its permanent art complex opened in a former bowling alley, with help from George R. R. Martin (yes, that George R. R. Martin), the city of Santa Fe and a Kickstarter campaign. I have had the good fortune to be able to visit twice this year. The first time was over Memorial Day weekend and the venue was so incredibly crowded that the experience was not ideal. My second visit was just a few weeks ago and the crowds were…
