Happy Tuesday all! Travel has always had a special place in our hearts. During my childhood summers we were always traveling across the east coast. One places that I spent many long summer days is Gatlinburg, Tennessee. As you may of heard the there have been there have been so serious fires that has damaged and left many homeless. It’s hard to see this beautiful town that I love so much go through this bump. There are many ways to help this town and every little bit helps.
Palm Springs is a town a little over 2 hours from LA inland. (It’s also less than an hour away from Joshua Tree National Park, which is a pretty cool place too.) The whole town has a 1960’s mid century vibe, from the architecture to the design of many of the hotels and stores around town. One of our first stops was to Ernest Coffee. They don’t roast their own beans, but they do serve Stumptown, which is the next best thing. After some coffee, we just wandered around the downtown area, admiring the architecture and doing some window shopping.
After wandering for a while, we went down the road to King’s Highway, which is a cute little mod-diner place attached to the Ace Hotel. This is a great place to stop for a good bite to eat. The food is phenomenal (try the Sweet Corn Fritters or the Breakfast Burrito), and the price won’t break the bank for those making a budget vacation. After getting some coffee and grub, we suggest taking a stroll around the Ace. It’s pretty sweet, and based on looks alone, we’ll probably end up staying there next time we’re in town.
Where have you guys been traveling to lately? We’d love to get some recommendations!
