Ready to feel holly and jolly? You could spend the entire month of December celebrating the holiday season. From parades to markets and festive rides, there is really something for everyone and every age to enjoy. And then, as 2019 winds down and 2020 comes into focus, it’s time to really party! I’ve pulled together more than 65 of the best, most unique, and fun holiday and Christmas events in Philadelphia and across the region plus New Year’s Eve events, too!
If there is one thing that I have learned over the last couple of years it is that Waldlaufer makes great boots. Sure, they make nice sneakers, too, and no matter what the style it’s comfortable and well-made in a way that’s difficult to find these days. But for the perfect winter travel boots, Waldlaufer is my go-to. The German shoe brand sent me a pair of their Jordy Hadessa and, quite frankly, I don’t want to take them off. These Waldlaufer boots are the most versatile for winter travel.
While you certainly can’t see everything in a single day in any city, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. A Glasgow day trip is extremely rewarding. Scotland is full of beautiful landscapes but it is also home to some urban centers you should experience. If your schedule only allows for one day in Glasgow, you can get a great taste and feel for the city. From exploring the city center to eating like a local, here’s my itinerary for day in Glasgow, Scotland!
Scotland is famous the world over for its beautiful Highlands, its rugged islands and its landscape of lochs. But the suburban seaside town of North Berwick, with its castle ruins on the cliffs and rocky beaches, is simply stunning At only a half-hour by train from Edinburgh, a visit to North Berwick is really a must.
With stunning views over the Firth of Forth, Bass Rock, and the East Lothian countryside at North Berwick, a day trip from Edinburgh to Tantallon Castle is not one you should miss. The ruins of this 14th century Scottish castle sit on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea. And visitors can explore what is left of the fortress by climbing high up into the towers and down below ground into the prison.
It’s amazing how much you can see and experience in only 3 days in Edinburgh, Scotland. You can easily get lost in the magic of the city, what with its narrow and meandering cobblestone streets and that impressive castle looming high above the city. With its relatively compact city center, easy (albeit sometimes hilly) walkability, a long weekend in Edinburgh will keep you busy with a variety of sights that speak to fans of history, the arts, food, and more. Here are some of my favorite spots to discover in the Scottish capital city!
For the best view in Munich, you need to visit St. Peter’s Church, or Alter Peter, in the heart of the city’s old city. Part of Munich’s magic and charm is its low skyline. In most of the city, especially the Altstadt, no building is permitted to be taller than the Frauenkirche, the city’s iconic double-domed church. But with no dedicated observation tower centrally located, how to get a peek at this beautiful city from above and enjoy the Alps in the background? Around Marienplatz there are a few options, including an observation deck within city hall (Neues Rathaus). But Alter Peter’s tower offers stunning unobstructed views.
