Sleepy Hollow became a popular place to visit after Washington Irving published the first printing of the story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” on March 20, 1820. The spooky tale carried over for generations and has been retold in several variations of movies and television specials. It was time I finally saw the town, starting with the cemetery.
Summer is around the corner and if you are thinking of taking a trip to soak up some sun and enjoy epic views of the sea, look no further than Rhode Island. Allow me to introduce you to the towns of Narragansett and Newport.
Although Rhode Island is the smallest state in the U.S., it has so much to offer for everyone: historical sites, seafood, nature trails, creative arts, and plenty of ocean views. It was the perfect place to recharge my energy and enjoy the beauty of the sea. We chose to visit the city of Providence as our starting point.
Our final days in Florida were bittersweet. I spent more time with my family and went out to different places.
Although Universal Studios is smaller than Islands of Adventure, there were more attractions in this park. We got to visit various worlds on the way to Kings Cross Station.

Walt Disney World—A place full of magic, memorable characters, and where childhood memories stay with you forever. Alondra and Gil enjoyed their first time with Mickey Mouse and friends.

When I visited Florida nine years ago, this place was known as Downtown Disney. So much had changed since then. Disney Springs is part of Walt Disney World. It is a free attraction that includes a variety of stores and restaurants.
Here was a community shaken to the core by an act of terrorism; dealing with immense grief. The shooter did not understand the meaning of tolerance, and many questions still need to be answered for the families of these 49 souls. Yet, the community was coming together to help each other try to heal.
