3 Reasons Why You Must Visit Halloween Horror Nights 25

It’s very rare that I say a person must attend an event. However, if you are a fan of Halloween then Halloween Horror Nights is an event you can’t miss. Last week, Danyelle and I travelled to Orlando to experience this event firsthand and boy did we have an amazing time. My love for Halloween is next level and attending this event made me love Halloween even more. Now in its 25th Year, Halloween Horror Nights is sure to put fear in the toughest person. With over 9 Haunted Houses, 5 Scare Zones and 2 Halloween Shows the fun and horror options are endless. Here are my top 3 reasons why you should attend Halloween Horror Nights: Jack the Clown: After a brief hiatus Jack the Clown is back and he is back with a vengeance. No matter how much you love clowns, something about Jack brings fear to my heart. He’s back this year with his own Haunted House and show. Jack plays no games and I definitely don’t want to get caught in an alley alone with him and his sidekicks. Haunted Houses: There are a total of 9 Haunted Houses, to get the full rundown head over to Swa-Rai.com. After getting a chance to experience all of them Insidious is the one house that made me face my fears. If I never go back to this house it wouldn’t be too soon. The Freddy Vs. Jason Haunted House: If you grew up in the 80s and 90s then you know how important Freddy and Jason are to Halloween lovers around the world. This haunted house takes you from the cursed Camp Crystal Lake to the nightmarish 1428 Elm Street, awake or asleep, you’ll find yourself caught in the middle of this epic battle — where the winner’s reward is YOU. The idea of being on Elm Street brings pure joy and fear but the idea of seeing them both battle at the end made the experience all worth it. And if you are a fan of American Werewolf in London you must stop by this Haunted House, the attention to detail is amazing by far one of my favorite designs. The Scare Zones: Last but not least you must make it a point to visit all 5 scare zones. This is where the streets of Universal Studios transform and all kinds of zombies and creatures of the night roam the streets. Keep your eyes open at all times or you may very well become their next victim. There someone waiting for you at every twist and turn. All in all we had an amazing time! This trip was definitely one for the record books, thanks Universal  Orlando for the...

Our Madame Tussauds San Francisco Adventure

Our Madame Tussauds San Francisco Adventure

As you guys know a few weeks ago Danyelle and I headed to San Francisco for a weekend full of fun and adventure. Since this was our first trip there we wanted to act like the tourist that we were and see and do as much as possible during our 3 day stay. One of the things I was looking forward to was going to Madame Tussauds in San Fran. It had been a while since I visited the Madame Tussauds in New York, so I figured it was time to go back. I must say after all these years Madame Tussauds still has its magic. As soon as we arrived at Madame Tussauds we were greeted by Morgan Freeman and Beyonce. I mean, how else should one be greeted when they come to SF. Oh hey Beyonce…. While I won’t give you a run down of my entire visit to Madame Tussauds because you definitely need to go for yourself, I will share with you some of my favorite moments and wax figures. Growing up I was obsessed with Al Capone and his mob crimes, so it was a pleasure running into him at Alcatraz. Somehow after my visit, I ended up becoming a prisoner… You can clearly see the crimes I committed above. Oh how I loved the entire Rosa Parks scene, they did and amazing job with her! Then I took a few moments to have “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”… Hey Harvey Milk! Don’t know about him, do a little research. Stopped for a quick chat with President Lincoln. Helped Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. give a speech. Tried to have a conversation with President Obama but he wasn’t trying to hear me. Of course the King was in the building but I felt like he was trying to get too romantic with me. My doll Marilyn all glammed up as usual! E.T. was trying to come home with me… It was great to see Gabby Douglas as well. And you guys know I can’t forget my favorite, Tupac!!! These were just a few of my favorite moments! I don’t want to spoil if for you so the next time you are in SF, make sure you pay Madame Tussauds a visit.    ...

San Francisco Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise

San Francisco Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise

Raijean and I had an awesome time during our most recent trip together visiting the Bay Area in August. We got to do a lot of things in and around San Francisco thanks to the people over at San Francisco Travel, who hooked us up with some awe-worthy adventures. I’ve always wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge in person, so I was especially elated to participate in the Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise by Red and White Fleet. The hour and a half tour covers San Francisco Bay and many notable sightseeing musts like Alcatraz, The Presidio, Palace of Fine Arts, and so much more. We ventured out during an early evening cruise, and I must admit it was rather chilly. Thankfully, we were able to buy some fleece hoodies before we set sail, since the bay can be a little cooler than it is on land. Once we got on board, we were able to secure some treats on the boat’s concession stand, and then we headed up top to take in the scenic views. There is no official tour guide on this cruise, but each customer receives a talking unit and headphones so you can listen in to historical facts about the landmarks and locations of things you pass along the way. The cruise allows you to take amazing photos of some of San Francisco’s hottest attractions without actually going to them. I was able to take several awesome photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the San Francisco-Oakland Bridge (thus the name of the tour, Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise because it takes you from the Golden Gate Bridge to the San Francisco-Oakland Bridge and back). The cruise is family friendly and children of all ages can participate. It departs from Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 43 1/2. For the last Bridge 2 Bridge Cruise of the day, there’s a Happy Hour with drink specials. Here are the details: WINTER 2014/14 (Nov 4 – Mar 27, 2015): Noon; Thurs – Mon @ 4:15 PM SPRING (Mar 28 – May 17, 2015): 12:30 PM, 2:15 PM, 4:15 PM SUMMER (May 18 – Sept 7, 2015): 12:30 PM, 2:15 PM, 4:00 PM, 5:45 PM FALL (Sept 8– Oct 31, 2015): 12:30 PM, 2:15 PM, 4:15 PM WINTER 2015/16 (Nov 1 – Mar 25, 2016): Noon; Thurs – Mon @ 4:15 PM And pricing: Adults (ages 18+): $38.00 Youth (ages 5-17): $26.00 Kids (under age 5): Free Group rates are also available for parties of 15 or more.
