    Hi traveler! I'm Kevin and I spent half of my life on the east coast and currently living on the west coast. I love the dichotomy of these two coasts and the gems all around the United States. My wife and I are nurses and we wanted to share some of the fun and relaxing places we have found on our paths to adventure. I believe there is great joy in not knowing and discovering on your own, and we will offer guides that are direct local knowledge with enough wiggle room for you to feel that wonderment for these beautiful spaces.
